Aw. Sorry Britain. Better luck next year.

Play:
--=--

Phantasy Star Online 2 (PC) - Well, I finally have a device that can
support this game in the form of a new Lenovo Legion laptop. Last year's
model, but that means I can get all my disappointment out of the way all
at once. Lock-on doesn't work, the camera makes no sense, and none of the
charm of its predecessors seems to be present in this iteration of the
game. Granted, it's a game from a decade ago and there seems to be plenty
of players so there's no danger that my bad first impression is going to
influence anybody's opinion. But it's way too different to the old games
for me to love it right away.

Phantasy Star Online (PC) - Yes, the original. The first thing I always do
with ny new PC is install all my old Sega games from twenty years ago,
starting with this. I thought it was broken until I realised that Windows
10 routes audio to newly discovered USB devices (like a 360 controller) by
default. It plays like a dream and is, in a lot of ways, still the perfect
game for goofing off with. It's too bad that the original Panzer Dragoon
and all the old Windows 98-era driving games don't work. Oh hey, this
laptop probably supports a beefy VirtualBox setup.

Want:
--=--

Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne (Switch/PS4) - Because what I really need
to do is have two more copies of this to go next to the PS2 game I've
never played.

Bin:
-==-

Nothing game-related.

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

Balance forward - $1,588

Lenovo Legion 5 Gen 5 (PC) - $1,200 (it was on sale and I'm tired of
waiting for the Gen 6)

Total year-to-date - $2,788

It Takes Two (PS5) - dual player co-op with Gus. This is a splendid
game, wrapped in a cliched terrible story. It's a splendidly inventive
platformer-ish action puzzle adventure thing, running around doing stuff
together and separately in order to progress. Elements of Portal, Moss,
Astrobot, even Conker. Every moment of the co-op gameplay is a treasure
and a joy. All the cutscenes are awful - the wrapper story is that
you're playing a couple who have decided to get divorced and they've
just told their 7 year old daughter who's crying about it has magicked
them into doll-size bodies (well, actual dolls) from when all the
platforming comes as they try to make their way back. The whole thing is
utterly cringeworthy. You can't skip cutscenes, but you can chat through
them.

More Amiga Silliness - I've bought an Amiga 1000, the first Amiga. Very
much looking forward to it arriving, I've wanted one since 1985.

> Want:

I'm going to pin my hat on Breath of the Wild 2, despite it being as far
away as Elder Scrolls 6 or Portal 3.

I do rather fancy Skyward Sword too.

> Bin:

The sheer expense of dealing with 1980s computers. Why didn't I buy this
stuff back in 2005? Stupid boy.

Cheers - Jaimie

I can't even blame that one on autocorrect. Sigh. "whose".

Thank you for your input. Now, if you have something
substantive to bring to the discussion, kindly do.
Otherwise, isn't there an eternal flamefest that would
peter out if you won't keep feeding it?

Virgin Media's intent to drop their Usenet service soon (next month I
think). I haven't posted via VM for ages, but I did still read posts
that way most of the time.
