No, *you're* posting the PWB two days late.


Shin Megami Tensei V (Switch) - Fifty hours? I need to stop taking the
Switch Lite everywhere in the house with me. I feel like I've hit sort of
ceiling in terms of entertainment value, in that I can sense getting tired
of all the alternative play options. Normally when a boss is too hard you
can find an entertaining way to level up, either by taking on side quests
or hunting down the rare demons that might give up EXP-boosting items. But
it's starting to feel old hat. The story is still nice, but I'm also kind
of hoping that it's coming in for a landing, and that might not be a good
sign. Or it's a indicator that gaming ennui is settling in just in time
for me to neglect two next-gen game systems.

Space Invaders Gastro Intestinal (360/XSX) - One of the Games with Gold
this month. It's essentially the Galaga special stages over and over again
with time and combo bonuses. Fun for like ten minutes.


All the stuff I preordered - A bunch of games from Strictly Limited, wot I
keep trying to log into with my Signature Edition credentials for some
reason. I thought it was more diverse than I remembered, but I checked
just now and it's just five different Cotton games and the Gaiares
reprint. I'm sure there's no international manufacturing holdup that might
be delaying my purchases.


Nothing game-related.


Balance forward - $612

Arguably I'm late enough to be early for next week.

> Play:

The Exploding Computer Game (Pi 3) - well, not quite. But my old Pi
had decided it didn't like USB drives so much any more, which may or
may not have been due to an old noname USB hub misbehaving. So I now
have a Pi 400, because speccy-ish-sized wedge computer so why not, but
also because it's hard to get any other Pi model right now. (It is
technically possible to do so, at times. Just about.)

NBA Jam (MD) - did still manage to play some of this while not
juggling computery stuff.

> Want:

To try all the emulators ever probably - I kept my Pi 3 underclocked
to Pi 2 speeds, so for me the 400 is literally twice as fast or more.

> Bin:

Primarily using the Pi 400 via my existing USB keyboard. Logical
because it's full-size and has more travel on the keys, but... yeah.
