I used to play Civ 2 on Playstation because my computer at that time sucked. It took forever to wait for the turns to finish.

I've played Civ 6 on my iPad Pro and it's actually a decent experience. It's supposed to run well on console. MATN has a video about it:

Civ 6 has been on console for over a year (Switch).

I've done it to a smaller degree (maybe 10 Pokemon rotation) in the more recent games because it's so easy to over level stuff, but the instant Box access is a huge QoL that actually goes well with the forced exp share.

I picked it (and its expansions) up on XB when it launched, and am loving it. I don’t game on PC any more and have really been missing experiences like Civ and Hearts of Iron, so was super stoked to play Civ 6. A bit pricey for the whole package, but awesome fun and they’ve done a pretty admirable job porting the controls/interface over to console.

Epitome of the “ah, just ten more minutes” kind of game. Simply life-destroying.

I picked up Disco Elysium in the steam sale.
It's fantastic so far. I haven't ever laughed so hard playing a game.

I bought a switch for the sole purpose of playing Civ 6 while on the road (an $80 game mind you) and I just can't get into it.

Civ 5 might be as close to perfect as possible. It's too bad they couldn't get Seen Been to narrate Civ 5.

On the other hand, anyone want to buy a switch and Civ 6?

I'm the opposite, after playing Civ 6 there's no way I can go back to 5. In 5 you are punished for expanding your empire with severe penalties to happiness, it basically forces you to keep your city count low. 6 is the exact opposite as you're encouraged to spread out as much as you can, which is what makes sense to me in an empire building game. I also really like the district system in 6, as well as being able to gather multiple units of the same type to form an army, which is a nice middle point between the single unit per tile rules of 5 and the stacks-of-doom from 4

It makes me so happy that Relic are the developers of Age of Empires 4.

I hate it when trailers give away the entire plot.

Just had my first successful 1v2 engagement in DCS! Holy crap it was tense. Took me like 3 days to figure out how to use the radar on the F-18 and I'm sure glad I did!

edit: Had to pull the replay, I'm that proud of myself

There is definitely some that will be lost on a none Star Wars fan, but as far as gameplay goes and exploration/character advancement, that is up there with the top of any game so you would enjoy that part.

As a non Star Wars fan it's probably still a solid 8/10.

WTH I didn't know this was a thing. I'v been searching for good flight combat games and this never came up. Time to pull out the old HOTAS

Edit: And it works with HTC Vive, maybe I can get some use out of that also. Now I see why i Never heard of it, $100 cdn for a plane, if its good maybe its worth it.

I am loving it.
I tried it a few years ago and for whatever reason couldn't get into it. Now I can't pull myself away, especially in VR. I recommend starting with the $18 F-15 to see if you like the overall idea of the game. The cheaper planes don't have as much functionality but they're still really fun, but the expensive planes like the F-18 I have have almost every system in them realistically modelled, with every button and switch in the cockpit clickable and working.

Does come with a steep learning curve though

MLB The Show will be getting released on Xbox and Nintendo platforms starting in 2021 — Sony still owns the license and develops the game but they’re going multiplatform. Very interesting news, I know The Show is the cream of the crop of baseball games so pretty big news.
