I was going to do a back-breviation with 'Prime Minister' in there
somewhere but everybody else has made better jokes already.

Play:
--=--

Elden Ring (PS5) - Woo. Many boss type things down. A husband-and-wife
pair of spellcasters? A half dozen dragons. A thing with a lion's mane.
A lava worm. Some guy named O'neill. I like that the game has fully
realised the Dark Souls potential of opening up everything to you in the
way that you want to approach it, in that all combat styles and nearly
all exploration methods are made valid by simple virtue of geography. If
Dark Souls 3 was perhaps a bit too hardcore and challenging, this is
almost an overcorrection in the other direction without giving up what's
essential about the series. I've just hit level 50 as a spellcaster and
I've put nearly 30 hours into it since I've started.

Want:
--=--

Analogue Pocket (GB/GBC/GBA/NGP/GG/TG-16/Lynx) - Woo. Shipping today! I
also got the three cart adapters so I can play my Lynx and Turbo and Neo
Pocket games on it. This will either be the best thing ever or will be a
massive letdown if some or all of it doesn't work quite like it should.

Bin:

Nothing game-related.

Analogue Pocket Cart Adapters (TG-16/Lynx/NGP) - $100

Total to date - $3,677

I thought the cart adaptors were only going on sale on the 28th - or
did I misunderstand their messaging? Certainly you can't buy them on
the site now.

Preorders started on the 21st? The first batch might have run out, but
as of this posting you can still add the set of three to your cart now.
It is sort of dirty billiards that they're forcing you to buy all those
adapters in a set, when they previously implied that you could pick and
choose which ones to get. Also the Game Gear one is still being sold
separately, probably because everybody picked that up as part of their
initial orders.

There might also be a regional thing going on, but I'm not sure if
Analogue is nearly that clever.

-KKC, whose schedule is all screwed up because of too many things going on.

We've got another one, y'know

> Play:

Monster Hunter World (PS4). So I came to the conclusion that I needed
a break from Monster Hunter Rise on PC so I thought I'd have a go of
the arcade version. It's not bad, if you ignore the "easy mode"
Guardian Gear that it tries to nudger you towards (which basically
gives you mid-high rank gear out of the gate). As I'm playing primarily
as a light bowgunner in Rise I thought I'd give the hammer a go in
World. Last time I played was pre-Iceborne, so it's nice to see some
of the additions.

> Want:

I kinda want No Man's Sky on Switch, as the reviews seem to be really
positive. I won't play it, though, which is why I haven't bought it.

Turning the PS4 on after a year or three and sitting watching All The
Things Update.

Not doing it

I see the issue. You can't order, say, the Game Gear adaptor at the
same time as the other three, since once is an active order and the
other is a pre-order.

Now I am just trying to work out if I really need to buy stuff while
it's available, or if I will be happy with my RetroPi setup instead.
