So after Christmas, Target had a crazy-ass deal on 500 GB Xbox Ones - after all of the discounts it came to $160. I've been trying to get one for a while, and my wife told me that she'd be willing to put some of our anniversary money towards getting one because my copy of Mass Effect: Andromeda has been sitting there since it arrived and I got super excited about Mega Man 11. Like, tears in my eyes excited because my son will be old enough to try the game with me when it arrives later this year.

ANYWAY, I went with the Minecraft one because that's all that they had left. I've already filled up the harddrive with my games that I've received through the Games with Gold program, plus a couple of other things. Right now I've been mostly playing Mass Effect: Andromeda, but I also dabbled in Disney Infinity because my buddy and I scored a ton of this ##### for dirt cheap right as it was being announced that the game was going under.

Mass Effect: Andromeda is pretty fun, but you can tell where development just grinded to a halt with the game. The dialogue is fairly crappy at points and occasionally the animation sucks, but I'm enjoying it.

Disney Infinity 3.0 isn't that bad (I like the sculpt for the Han Solo figurine btw), but with the online servers being off there isn't a lot to do. Thankfully I got my hands on some of the Star Wars packs, but the Battle of Hoth section is killing me so far.

Even I might have picked up an XB1 new for $160, that's a hell of a deal.  I keep hoping we'll hear something about a retail version of Cuphead.

I didn't finish it (yet) but I thought Mass Effect: Andromeda was pretty unfairly lambasted. Yooka-Laylee too. People have their reasons but they're still both a lot of fun.

I'm playing way too much NBA2K18 lately considering how frustrating it is.

I'm actually somewhat interested in Mass Effect Andromeda. This is coming from someone who gave up on the series after Mass Effect 2 not because I didn't overall like Mass Effect 2, but at the time I had more of a chip on my shoulder about EA's takeover and all the DLC and gaming controversies so I had no interest in 3.

I will definitely get Yooka-Laylee at SOME point and I'll probably enjoy it.

I think right now I'm mostly just looking for something action RPG-ish that isn't a Souls game. I may get Skyrim for Switch because I still haven't really played that. Or Minecraft again despite that I was Anti-Minecraft for a long time. Turns out I enjoy making stuff.

I've beaten and am taking a break from Zelda. I dunno if I'm ever going to get everything in that game but I might try some sort of challenge run... sometime this year.

I got super excited about Mega Man 11. Like, tears in my eyes excited because my son will be old enough to try the game with me when it arrives later this year.

This made me smile.

I found Mass Effect Andromeda to be fun, but it definitely has some flaws. A lot of the sidequests are really pointless fetch quests (even worse than ME3's nonsense), but the main quests for each planet are handled better.

It definitely was rushed, most likely because of EA. It reminds me a lot of Dragon Age II, rushed and obviously not as good as the last game, but still enjoyable. But I'm also a sucker for Bioware games...


I do want to try Yooka-Laylee as well, but I just have so many games on my backlog already. I'll probably get to it sometime this year.

I totally forgot to talk about one aspect of me finally getting an Xbox One. Wife told me to see what stuff in the basement I'd be willing to sell to get the Xbox One. Put together a bunch of limited/collector's editions that I didn't really care about anymore and the Virtual Boy headset that I'd found in the trash when my old neighbors moved out. Took everything to the local independent video game store, and all said and done, the offered me $120 for what they were willing to buy, a bulk of it coming from the Virtual Boy headset (they'd use it for parts). Honestly, I expected to get $50, tops, and that's if they were generous. Plus a friend of mine from elementary school offered to buy some of the other CE/LE stuff for another $50. So we didn't even have to dip into the anniversary money, the Xbox One was paid for just on me selling video game ##### that I didn't want anymore!

Awesome! An Xbone for that cheap is a helluva deal. If I were selling my 2 year old one I'd sell it for more than that.

I think right now I'm mostly just looking for something action RPG-ish that isn't a Souls game. I may get Skyrim for Switch because I still haven't really played that.

You might want to check out Hollow Knight.

It's an excellent game in it's own right, but it definitely has some dark-souls esque bosses and the rest of it is melee metroidvania. I put like 30 hours into it, loved it.

And all DLC is free and there's still more to come. One of my games of the year, 2017, easy.

Finished Mario Odyssey.  It ALMOST edged out 64 as my favorite 3D Mario.  So close!  But amazing game.  Playing South Park The Fractured But Whole now.  Loving it.  It's an excellent follow up to Stick of Truth.

I plan on getting that when I'm gainfully employed again.
