Close the nightclubs. Do proper social distancing. Log your contacts and
avoid long trips. Didn't we go through this already?

Play:
--=--

Fallout 3 (PC) - Well this is a buggy mess. Weirdly, the DVD version
seemed to run way better even though it was Games for Windows. As it
stands, the Steam version crashes (but doesn't exit) for no reason about
once every ten minutes, which means that the authoritative way to play
this now is on an Xbox 360. Where it only crashes every hour or so. This
is probably why there's no Switch port, because they can't get it past
Nintendo's QA check. Oh wait, let's see if this .ini file change will fix
it!

Fallout 4 (PS4) - Oh look, here I am with the GOTY edition trying to enjoy
the game. I've started over (mostly because my save files didn't make it
over from the PS4 to be transferred into the PS5) and the first thing that
happens is you're sent to your old house so that you can stand up a
settlement, which is not what I play these games for. It's not unlikely
that

Dark Souls II (PC) - Why won't you run in full screen?

Want:
--=--

My head to stop hurting - I'm sure it's just excess calories. Or
existential angst. Those things might be related.

Bin:
-==-

Nothing game-related.

Expenditure:
-----=-----

Balance forward - $5,707

Steam Sale (PC) - $131 (What in the hell did I buy? All the Fallouts
again. Most of the historical Total Wars. The newest Wizardry. A bunch of
other cheap Sega stuff. Oh, Dark Souls II too.)

Total year-to-date - $5,838

Hitman 3 (PS4) - replayed a few bits, in particular the
Christmas-themed mission on the Paris level from Hitman 2016, where

this has been referred to as "Permanent Seasonal" content, presumably
meaning that you permanently get it sometimes. Confusing.

Oekaki Puzzle (PS1) - brief nonogrammitude.

Nothing, in a spirit of apparent goodwill to all games. Which probably

I'm led to understand the name is something of a misnomer, in that Art of
Rally doesn't evoke any of the excitement or the mess of WRC in any way.
It's more sort of a zone-out game, with colours and music meant to help
you relax into some sort of transcendental state. I assume that the term
'transcendental' means that it's good for your teeth or something.

Well I did wonder how the gameplay might be - and I was impressed to
see exactly zero reviews of any kind linked from Metacritic. I didn't
know whether to read that as good, bad, or indifferent, but it was
enough to put me off for now. :-)
