I gave Squadrons a brief try and it didn't hook me.  I found the controls to be tough to get used to.  I should probably give it another chance.

The Bioshock Collection is on sale on Steam for $11.99.  Is this group of games worth buying?

If you have never played the game I would say yes.

I really enjoyed the series.  A bit on the odd side the whole thing but over all really well done.

They're pretty iconic. Worth a look.

Currently watching the PS5 showcase.  Announcements:

KOTOR remake (by Aspyr)
Project Eve (seems similar to Bayonetta and/or Nier Automata)
Insomniac making both Spiderman 2 and Wolverine
Uncharted 4 and Lost Legacy remaster for PS5 and PC
GTA V remaster for PS5
Tchia (cute/wholesome)

New trailers for God Of War: Ragnarok, Tiny Tina's Wonderland, Guardians of the Galaxy, Forspoken, Deathloop, and several I've forgotten.

Tiny Tina's Wonderland.  I knew about this but I am not sure how I feel about it.  She is a fun character, and they absolutely nailed the DLC that centered around her.  But do we really need a whole game centered around her.  My gut instinct says no.  Time will tell.

Your list has a lot of remakes.  What we really is new, great IP.

We absolutely, positively, 100% definitely do.

:D

The trailer looks fun.  It looks, basically, like Borderland Tiny Tina DLC turned into a full game.  Same shooter looter mechanic with spells mixed in.  I do love Borderlands play style.  So it is possible I will like this.  Tina can be a bit much, a whole game of her might be overwhelming.

Ultimately if they fix the problems of BL3 with this game it could be very good.

I wonder how many season passes they will have for it?

Well they already have one lined up.

I will probably wait until a good discount comes along and I have some time to play it.

So Sora from Kingdom Hearts is in Smash...

As you might imagine, there are lots of reactions to such news, many of which are heartwarming and pure, if you need something to smile to.
