Trying to learn X Plane 11 and the Boeing 737. I have a checklist printed for a cold and dark startup. Love watching virtual X11 pilots on You Tube especially Jeff Favignano !! Any other X11 peeps out there?

Warframe because it's the best game ever - looking forward to the melee 3.0 rework!
World of Warships I just can't stop playing it
Plants vs Zombies still one of the best tower defense games ever
Project Hospital if I get around to it - but seeing as I now have five days off in a row I probably will :P

I think I have changed my mind and am going to start playing Titanfall 2.

Welp...broke down and got Anthem. Initial reviews of the full release have been much more positive then the demo and the public beta. I'll look forward to reporting my findings to the crew.

I think I have changed my mind and am going to start playing Titanfall 2.

From my experience, it won't take you long. It's a nice cinematic shooter game, like Shogo Mobile Armored Division (except lottts more modern of course).

That being said, don't be surprised if you don't really feel like you're running around in a giant robot (much as with Shogo). Not least because more than half the time you won't be running around in a giant robot (much as with Shogo). Heck, there's only one real "Prepare for Titanfall" moment, although appropriately that's the final battle.

I'll look forward to reading them.  Anthem could be great, in time.  I hope it's sooner rather than later.

I have had EA Premiere since back in last August....totally think it's worth if it you plan to play a couple EA games a year.  Currently downloading Anthem myself, but my connection is so slow likely won't be done until late tonight/tomorrow:)

This weekend I think I gonna rock on down electric avenue.

I worked hard like a soldier this week and I can't afford anything on tv.

Whoah! Flashback! That song video first popped up on Nightflight (USA network?) right about the time Adrian Belew's Big electric Cat video also premiered. Around 1982 maybe?

I just picked up Metro Exodus for the PS4 today, so I'm eager to play it this weekend.

However, playing the new Metro game might be problematic due to my girlfriend currently playing Claire Redfield's story in Resident Evil Remake. I might have to conduct an organized retreat to one of my PC wargames--although it is highly entertaining watching someone play RE2 Remake.

Saboteur and Brothers in Arms I’ve put aside until I get back in to a WWII mood again.

Is Shogo a solid game? I’ve heard that Titanfall 2 is a short game...gonna start a Battlefleet Gothic campaign too.

I just didn’t want to jump in to WH40k whole hog...yet. Wanna savor Mechanicus and Sanctus Reach.
