So apparently the 3070ti is actually not AS bad an instance of price gouging as the 3080ti.

Not that it's going to be in any way possible to buy one, of course, so it's purely academic.

Control is currently free on the Epic game store, and I got a $15 coupon as well.

My Epic library is huge, and I haven't linked my credit card to it yet

Add Control to the never-ending list of games to play

Control is free, Control Ultimate Edition which includes the two campaign DLCs is $55.

If you get Control for free and spend $10 on the Season Pass, you effectively have gotten Control Ultimate Edition for $10.

Excited for Ratchet and Clank to drop tonight.

It seems like that might be the first true "Next Gen' game, at least from a visual perspective.

Absolutely, I expect it to be the first game I really feel like the new system has been worth it.

Clearly you have never played this all time classic.

... Anyway that just looks like a Soulslike to me.

Considering it’s a from software title that would make sense. The whole George RR martin thing was big news a while back. Easy to miss though.

It seems to me that if you want a PS5 you can get one either through paying a bit of a premium (and at this point it's not THAT bad a premium) or through some diligence and patience.

The issue is that there aren't really any games for it that are worth playing, as far as I can tell... There's Miles Morales and that's about it.

And that doesn't even feel like a full game, just more line DLC for Spiderman.

Returnal is pretty good too. Fun and fast paced but a bit of a different game structure that not everyone will like.

I’ve only played for a about an hour but it feels like Ratchet and Clank will change that though. .

Gameplay is really fun so far (I love the pixelizer) and visually it’s amazing. The particle effects, the attention to detail, and just how beautiful the game is overall.

Truly does feel like you’re playing a high quality animation feature film. And honestly I feel like the actual gameplay looks better than any if the cutscenes in the game.

That's a PS3 game.

Cyberpunk would count, if it works properly yet. Last I checked it was basically only for people with PCs. Good PCs.

I’m really tempted to play through Cyberpunk 2077 on PC again now that they’ve had time to go through and fix the weird ass breaking bugs.

Also, I managed to grab an Xbox Series X off the employee store, that arrives next week. I sold one of my Xbox Ones (our lone One S, still have two One X consoles) to fund it. I’m really interested to see how big the difference is for games that are Series X optimized.
