Atari has announced the price of their own mini console.

It's $400.

I'm not joking.

Does it have every single game that was ever released for their systems?
I mean, $400 would still be a too much, imo, but I could understand it.

Laymen Gaming did a video on it, watch that. But even if it did, $400 is a steep-ass price when the new consoles are coming out in less than six months.

Bought the season pass for Destiny 2, because the premium items are much better than last season's and I want things. Currently nearing rank 80 and with 70-plus days left I should very well reach the end before Sep 22.

Warlock and Titan have started Shadowkeep, since Forsaken will take too damn long to complete and I enjoy the horror-themed atmosphere and story of Shadowkeep (best content in ages, easily, feels like I'm playing Taken King all over!).

Got Deathbringer, and bought (bright dust) the Peacemaker ornament for it. Looks snazzy now.

Used leftover funds to buy the Red String of Fate ornament for Malfeasance even though I haven't unlocked it yet (gonna try and advance the quest with my clan or randos this weekend).

Need to start playing Gambit like crazy during this boosted Infamy week, but I've been hella busy lately (especially doing the Recaster bounties, and I can only imagine what the hell people are doing to get the rank 21 ship).

I need to do the Ruinous Effigy quest but that'll take the weekend. I have no idea when I'll have time to do all the raids and lairs, definitely going to be a chore.

I got the Dredgen title last night, and reached rank 21 with the recaster. Currently at level 120 for the season pass, and have obtained full invader sets for all of my guardians (+15 for my Hunter, +6 for the other two). A couple of people in my clan already have the new exotic, but I haven't even done this week's Interference, yet. I'll get to it eventually, but I think I'm gonna finish my Truth quest next.

Part of me wants to go for the MMXX title, while another part of me doesn't want to hate myself that much. We'll see which one wins out in the end (I'm kinda pulling for the latter).

Ghost of Tsushima dynamic theme download codes (large pic)

Reached Legend rank in Gambit, I can definitely reach reset by Sunday evening. Going to try and knock out as many quests/bounties as possible in the next couple days and get a bunch of Gambit in before the boost goes away.

Reset my Infamy, unlocked Trust (in Gambit Chrome, but the roll is ho-hum). Yippee. As of this writing at season rank 90.

And great news! The past couple Gambit Prime matches just a short while ago, in the first my team managed to get the "By the Skin of Your Teeth" medal, snatching victory from the jaws of defeat...and then it happened again in the second match! I'm floored, really, I never expected this to happen and certainly not back-to-back!

I also (finally) finished the Vell Tarlowe memory quest and was trying to farm Nightmare Crota for its Essence of Despair, but it hasn't dropped just yet. Hopefully soon.

I also need to get a team and do Reckoning to upgrade my Synthesizer.

Beyond Destiny 2, I downloaded the Castlevania Anniversary Collection, because it has a very good early selection (1, 2, 3, Super 4, Adventure, and Kid Dracula which was unreleased in America). I'll probably get Bloodborne because it has the DLC and the bundle is less than $20, cheaper than any other deal I've seen for it.

Pissed I forgot LEGO Hobbit was on sale and now it's full price again.

Me and my dad also watched some tech videos on YouTube and one was this dude reviewing a $2600 curved computer monitor, was impressive. Other video was this team reviewing/building a GameCube and its accessories, including a mint-in-box Game Boy Player which the host was extremely reluctant to open. They played Donkey Konga and Smash and had a blast. Made me want to hook mine up again.

But hey, now I can start to relax because I only have ten season pass levels to go before it's maxed so I don't need to grind bounties like fucking crazy and can focus on specific activities!

Genesis with Explosive Payload is one of the two best Trust roles possible, and is the one the Drifter holds for you to get multiple copies of (albeit at 750). The other great role is Dragonfly with Explosive Payload (upon which you should put Dragonfly spec, because of course). I have them both, but the Genesis one gets used more often. The auto reload after breaking enemy shields really comes in handy during a firefight. As for Reckoning runs, if you're playing on PS4, I could probably help you out. They're pretty easy to do, especially T1 and T2, so I wouldn't mind running them even though I have full T3 sets of both Invader and Sentry already. Even T3 isn't too hard, especially if you get the Oryx version, as he actually goes down easier than the solo story boss version back in Taken King.

In a couple days, I'll probably be taking a break from Destiny for awhile, though, as Ghost of Tsushima comes out. It's the first game I've really been hyped for in a very long but time, so that's happening. Hopefully it'll reignite my single player gaming, and help me get some games in my backlog moving again.

So apparently doing heroic adventures gets 25% flashpoint progress, because I did Heroic Psionic Potential five times on my Hunter and after the fourth run I got the notification that the Mars flashpoint was done. I got three more planets to do heroics on so hopefully this works in my favor before Sep 22.

Collected all the calcified light fragments and 10 marionettes down, don't feel like grinding out the last few, I'll do that tomorrow and then steadily knock out the eyes/catalyst.

Also hit season rank 96, so I almost have the final armor ornament.

Yeah, I do play on PS4, east coast timezone. Offer is appreciated.

Ghost of Tsushima came out tonight, and it's genuinely amazing.
I've already decided to go for the platinum; it's that good.

Reached 100 (well, 104 or whatever, but I maxed it) for season pass, so now I'm being much pickier about which bounties I go after. Means I have more time for Banshee to hoard upgrade modules, enhancement cores and mod components, and to devote more time to Shadowkeep on my alts. Also helps that Beyond Light is delayed until November.

I got the Outlast pulse rifle, decent roll...and was not happy at all with it. Which really sucks because I love pulses and was looking forward to that one being in my collection. I'll hold onto it as I clear more shit from my vault.

Almost done the Matchbook catalyst, thank fucking Christ; Bungie really dropped the ball on that one. The Chaperone quest is almost done as well, I now need 15 Gambit Guardian kills so it looks like I'm going to have to step up my game.

Still looking to get a new headset (probably Astro, because I like this one I'm looking at, price is decent for refurbished by manufacturer, and Datto on YouTube has promoted them a lot over the years) and a new PS4 controller.

I'll send you a message/FR sometime this weekend.

I'm debating getting the Disney Afternoon Collection on XBox One. It includes the '89-94 show-based NES games (Darkwing Duck, Rescue Rangers etc.).

For the next couple days it's on sale for $5, which seems a good price. The only reason I didn't do it is because I really don't want to charge more stuff this month and I don't have a lot of download space left.

Anyone have an opinion on those games? I remember Mike Matei saying good stuff about the Ducktales game.
FDIT:
I did it. It’s 6 of them for $5:33 and they’re only a dew dozen MB.

Enjoy the bundle. I'm waiting for Aladdin/Lion King to go on sale again because it's been a couple months or more since I saw them on offer. I'll probably get Bloodborne tomorrow.

Finished the Matchbook quest...only to receive an incomplete catalyst that I now have to grind out. Thanks, Bungie. Bad enough the quest bugged out and removed itself and had to be patched, but to salt the wound the reissue was the exact same grind (exact length and everything, because the first version needed 400 points but the points were boosted to seem like less of a grind, but then the patched version had 100 points at a 1:1 ratio, meaning the entire quest line took twice as long as it should have).

At least I got the Vanguard emblem/shader from Zavala for the season, in the process discovering that I die usually once if not a handful of times during each attempt at A Garden World's nightfall even on adept difficulty (though I rack up a shitload of kills). I did complete that nightfall's special challenge (Minotaurs are not shielded more than 90 seconds or something). Also completed Toland's memory quest thanks to Escalation Protocol, which I've been again with public randoms (need several weapons and the helmet for my Hunter).

Going to try and grind out Interference, Savathun's Eyes, and a few other things tomorrow.

Well, I ended up doing all sorts of things except for the Eyes.

1) Thanks to Parrylakks, did four successful Reckoning runs to upgrade my Gambit Synthesizer to mid-level. Reset is in two days and then I can enjoy another step forward on my Hunter. At the moment I'm trying to advance my alts to the same page (and complete the Gambit Prime quest to side with the Vanguard and complete the lore book).

2) Only need the Relic version of Interference and that triumph is complete. Also need the Taken Pyromaster from Contact and then I can get that Pyramid Ship emblem.

3) Got all 7 of Drifter's tapes. Depressing stories, although given that Toland's Ghost was also insane, I can't say I didn't see some of this coming.

(PS -- I love loading into a Prime match where the enemy Primeval is almost dead, barely any motes in our bank probably because of shitloads of blockers, and I'm the third and last player arriving).

(Also can't have more than one weak mote in my inventory at the same time, so I guess I have to do Reckoning on my Warlock first before I can synthesize a weak mote with my Titan).

Need to clear out my vault some more, got too much shit.

Got through Act 1 of Ghost of Tsushima, and it's very much making a case to be heralded as the best game of this console generation. It's telling an amazingly emotional and gripping story with well developed interesting characters. Plus, it's gorgeous to look at, proving to be the first ever photo mode that I actually use, and I use it regularly. It's easily the best game I've played in a very long time.

At Recaster rank 18, should hit 21 next week and then I can stop giving a damn about that thing (aside from related triumphs).

Finally beat the Taken Pyromaster in Heroic Contact in Io, so my Warlock has a new regular emblem. My Titan has one too, since I barely crawled through Adept-level Corrupted. Goddamn that strike is absolutely horrible as a nightfall, the enemies significantly stronger than before even at the lowest difficulty and in such immense numbers that it's frightening. The randoms on my team stuck with it until the end despite numerous wipes and the final score for us was a painful 3,000. I didn't even get a decent Horror's Least so I'm going to have to go in there again. I don't even want to begin to imagine doing it on harder settings.

I have the 3/100-cap nightfalls and 60 rocket kills remaining for that stage of the Truth quest. Still need to do Whisper.

I decided to use Jade Rabbit in Crucible to grind out its catalyst while doing bounties. The magazine is way too damn low for a scout rifle, but that aside I'm doing better than I feared and have had some surprise kills at times. Only 17 kills so far but I'll get there eventually.

Need to do the first Reckoning runs on my Titan and Warlock to complete that stage of their quests. Apparently I can't have more than one mote at a time so I'm going to have to slog through this back-to-back, and I haven't masterworked their weapons yet so that'll be for tomorrow to set myself up better. And also need to get the final level for my Hunter's synthesizer.

I did manage to complete last week's Ascended Challenge from Petra, and stunningly accomplished its time trial. I have the rest to do and I'll probably need to get a squad for them because I just know I'm in for a chore.

I downloaded Bloodborne since it had a "complete" bundle with the Old Hunters DLC for less than $20. I'm going to have a heckuva time working my way through all that but I intend to do it. (On a related note, Mortal Shell is looking good).

At some point I'll get back to Hitman 2.

Finished Act 2 of Ghost of Tsushima tonight; insanely emotional. The writing for this game is really well done. I applaud it for some of the stuff it's pulled off already, and I've still got the final act to go.

New headset (Astro A10, refurbished by manufacturer) arrived today and looks sexy with its red trim on the black plastic. Vendor on eBay had Xbox green, PS4 blue, PC red, Call of Duty olive drab, and Legend of Zelda black with gold logo/patterns. I almost got the Zelda one because it actually looked really nice but I'm not a serious Zelda fan so I chose to let someone else have a shot at getting a nice headset themed for something they love.

...The instructions that come with it are a medium-sized fold-out double-sided extravaganza. Shit you not, Astro gets points for having lots of language options to cover a wide range of buyers, but the number of diagrams is probably unnecessary (because it isn't that hard to do all this, aside from the split jack needed for some PCs due to audio card reqs). Gonna have to test this out over the weekend, but it'll at least be much comfier to wear than the previous model I used.

For Destiny 2, I cleared 5 heroic missions for EDZ and then cleared (again! because they inexplicably respawned) three missions on Mercury. Now I need Mercury and Io to become flashpoints again soon so I can complete those triumphs and never do them again. I need to start doing the 25 Survival matches, seriously, so I can be done with this quest.

Well, I finished Ghost of Tsushima yesterday, and earned the Platinum trophy shortly thereafter, as I hadn't missed much for it. Absolutely fantastic game. I stand by the claim that it may very well be the best game of this console generation. My only complaint is that there isn't a New Game + option. I'm still gonna play it again, though; Kurosawa Mode beckons.

The Ducktales games are fun. I think Chip and Dale and it's sequel were the only two player games. I didn't know there was a sequel and Tailspin was new for me also.

There was some slowdown here and there, not sure if it was the emulator or what, but it was kind of annoying. Otherwise it seemed a fair price for the content.

It took me days to beat the first land (Amazon) in Ducktales. It's pretty hard. I'd get a section down then the next part would get me, I'd figure that out and have trouble with the first part again. Damn bees.

Completed the Shadowkeep story with my Warlock, now I need to finish with my Titan. Of course, this doesn't include doing Forsaken, which will take a little while longer since I want to focus on other things right now.

Managing to do Heroic Contact much better now that I know the mechanics, but there isn't much point to doing it since I have the emblem and all three Interference types done. I only really did it multiple times today to grind out Cabal-on-Io kills for Invitations of the Nine.

Just got done the Savathun Eyes on Titan. I'll grind the rest of them out over this week.

Had another super-close call in Gambit Prime: enemy Primeval was down to a sliver of health, ours had a chunk left, and amazingly we managed to kill ours first. Other team must have been absolutely furious, especially since they repeatedly invaded with fairly good success.

After brief consideration and looking at the reqs, I'm probably going to aim for the Forerunner title as I have most of the Arrivals triumphs complete (only missing four, two of which are unknown).

I'm thinking about getting MK11 as it's bundled with Aftermath and the Kombat Pack for $42, but Horizon Zero Dawn Complete Edition is also on sale. Payday this Friday can't come soon enough.

Started Kurosawa Mode yesterday, and it's quite the experience. At times it really looks like one of his classic films, leaving me half expecting Toshiro Mifune to show up. I'm also noticing some things that I hadnt before, mostly little this, but some fairly central to the game. That's why it's always fun to play through games again -- noticing what you missed before. All in all, it's fun to go through it again, and at least I know which abilities matter to me this time around.

Got my Warlock past the Reckoning first time step in the Gambit quest, and chose Vanguard over Drifter to finish unlocking the Aunor logs. Need to do my Titan next, but at least I can have both Hunter and Warlock do the daily Prime Civic bounties to hoard synths.

But hey, good news! Just a short bit ago I tried again at the 750 Corrupted Nightfall Ordeal and my teammates must have been packing serious weapons (one guy was using Sunshot, I'm damn sure of it) and it was not as difficult as last time. I used Ether Doctor in my kinetic slot so that I could use Riskrunner for mobs especially during the boss fight with those endless Taken Psion waves. We ended up with a score of 54k and I got the curated masterworked version of Horror's Least. (Don't got any dexterity mods right now so boost handling as Aztecross suggested so I'll have to keep an eye out for them).

Just finished the 10 Eyes on Mars for Effigy, though I'm dreading doing the ones on Io and Mercury (especially Io, because some are in the Whisper mission, which is bullshit, Bungie, as is putting them into the Prophecy dungeon). I will have just enough time tomorrow to do the 4 tier 2 Reckoning runs on my Hunter so that I can focus on collecting the Notorious armor sets.

Only need tomorrow's reset and next week's to have all the Wandering Nightmares for the Moon. Still need to do Pit of Heresy. Doing that and Prophecy flawless solo will definitely require a new controller.

I'll definitely need a new controller for Division 1 if I ever spare the time to go back to it.

Going to start grinding out the Survival matches this week. Doing the 20 bounties will be a bitch but mostly for time. Really need to finish the Edgewise, Truth, Malfeasance, and a few other random quests I've left incomplete.
