Have been playing Prey (2017) which is a 'spiritual successor' to System Shock/Bioshock and is pretty good.

I might queue this up for some comfy October gaming, I've read good things. It seems to have suffered from being released during a time of peak Marxism in gaming when I dismissed most new releases. Not unlike today.

I'm not sure if I'd call it comfy, but I am enjoying it.
I think it suffered from using the name Prey because people then associate it with the unrelated 2006 game (starring Art Bell), and it didn't seem to have much marketing surrounding it and what there was didn't show what the game is like.

Mostly have been playing the Katamari Damacy remake:

The story is that the King of All Cosmos went on a bender and destroyed all the stars, leaving the task of fixing them (by rolling up junk on a sticky ball) to his son.

No but I kinda want one. Of all the Classics that have been released it seems like one of the better ones. Right right now I have an FC Twin and a small collection of games for both NES and SNES. If I see a SNES Classic cheap enough out there Iíd probably pick it up but right now theyíre still fetching the original MSRP or better. You?

I own one yes, it's sort of just sitting next to 4 arcade cabinets I bought from a Walmart. Maybe it will find a new home.

Yup,



Cool! I was intrigued by the limited edition Atari one they released that had about a dozen classics on it (including trackball games) but recently thereís a new cabinet released by another company (AtGames I think) that looks even better in a lot of ways so now Iím not so sure.

The Atari would be pretty cool, I'll have to check out this company. I also have this sort of hybrid emulator that turns on directly from the joystick module. I have no clue what the hell it is but it has a long list of Fighting games and such... I'll get a photo of that later.

I may give up the SNES mini... Perhaps I could potentially send it over to you, if you don't get one in due time.

I wish we lived in that kind of world, myke, I really do...but if I wasnít willing to hand over my anonymity for a hoodie Iím not going to do it for a SNES Classic. ;)

Thank you for the generous offer though but free speech is worth more to me and I really already have more games than I can play. Find someone local who you think would really want one. I understand that some hospitals sometimes have a video games room for the kids and adult kids. :)

You don't own a P.O. Box?

Understandable, I've always been a pleaser.

When I ask people who are into video games which system theyíre currently having the most fun playing the answer these days is invariably the Nintendo Switch. I finally had the opportunity to try it out last night and was somewhat underwhelmed. I should note that I did not have the opportunity to play it as a handheld so keep that in mind. It was connected to a TV with the individual controllers detached. My main problem is just with how incredibly tiny the controllers are. Theyíre clearly made for Japanese hands. Not only did I keep pressing buttons I didnít mean to (that would sometimes take you out of the game to the menu screen) but my host (who has been playing on the system for awhile now) did as well. While Iím sure much of this would be remedied as a handheld it really limits it as a shared gaming experience, IMHO.
