Civ VI is coming to the Switch in November!!!!!! Work and my social life will end the day the game is released. At least for awhile. I already have a hard enough time not playing Civ: Revolution on my phone all day at work.

Anyone try the Battlefield V beta this weekend? It's cool, beautiful game, feels good, but I think I'm just burned out on shooters. I don't know if it's a buy for me.

I'm hopelessly addicted to Cities: Skylines on Xbox gamepass. It's a extremely well done city management game like SimCity. I pretty much wasted my whole Sunday playing it. It's one of those games if you check the time when you're playing it's always way later than you're expecting. The game just sucks me in and won't let go.

I'm still a huge fan of gamepass. They keep releasing awesome games on it. I recommend trying it whenever MS offers an introduction price.

I have it on PC. It's awesome. Especially with all the mod support.


In other news, a whole bunch of Final Fantasy games are coming to Xbox One.

red dead redemption 2 is out today. who's getting it? i wanted a physical copy so mine won't arrive for a couple days, i figure whats 3 extra days of waiting. only heard great things, it's massive, immersive, etc. also that the initial download is ridiculous.

I want it but I don't have an XBox One and I don't plan on buying one anytime soon.
