E3 2019 is boring as hell so far. I really need Square Enix, Ubisoft, and Nintendo to pick up the slack with SOMETHING worthwhile to be excited about.

Ok, Ubisoft and Square Enix weren't half bad. Lat, but not least Nintendo tomorrow at 12pm. Please be good so we can end E3 on a strong note. Give me DLC for Mario Kart 8 Deluxe or a Mario Kart 9 and you will win E3 for me. lol

I would love to get this for my 5yr old nephew, he's a major Nintendo fanboy. He will literally play my 2DS XL and Nintendo Switch (handheld) until the battery goes dead. lol Decisions, decisions to make for Christmas this year......

I don't play COD MW but I have been playing Call of Duty: Mobile haha.

It's just been for a few weeks but I already know I screwed the pooch on not playing this franchise on a console as a teen based off these few weeks (as I've hinted at some that deal is a long story). I like it. Does anyone else play it here?

I remain quite unlikely to ever buy another console again though.

I have been saving up to build me a new gaming rig and finished it up with part of my stimulus check. First Build I did from the ground up with all/mostly new hardware.

Budget Build ($850)

ASRock B450 PRO4 AM4 AMD Promontory (Amd announced the B550 chipset right after I finished my build...:mad:)

Ryzen 5 3600 CPU

EVGA Rtx 2060 KO Ultra Graphics Card

G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 3200 mhz CAS Latency 16

Intel 660p Series M.2 2280 512GB PCIe NVMe 3.0 x4 3D2 (For Games)

WD Blue 2.5-Inch 3D NAND SATA SSD 250GB (For Windows 10 Pro)

Segate 3TB 7500 rpm Hard Drive (Music, Pix ect..)

Fractal Design Focus G Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

I reused the Corsair CX600 power supply. It still a good efficient PS.

Been playing Red Dead Redemption II (one of my many listed backlogged games) all month long. Damn this game is amazing. I'm almost done with the main story.

Nearly 3 months later and I'm still playing Animal Crossing New Horizons on Switch....idk what it is about this game, but it is addicting. My neice is addicted to this game too.

EDIT: This is my first legit Animal Crossing game playthrough so I'm new to the franchise.

I made a purchase of something I never owned or played growing up last month. I always wanted one so I figured why not?! This was my first time buying something from eBay so I'm glad I did get exactly what I paid for. It's in great condition. The only problem was having to buy a HDMI splitter and a composite splitter because all 4 HDMI ports on my TV were being used and my 4K Samsung TV doesn't have composite output.

*This is the second one I got, I bought this one outright, I lost the bid on the first one I saw.

Nintendo is really going all out for the Italian plumber's 35th anniversary this month. I'm showing this to my niece and nephew later today, both of them are going to lose their minds especially my 6yr old nephew he's a hardcore Mario fan/gamer.:D

Nintendo pulled a Disney Vault maneuver and I fell right into the FOMO trap. This collection will only exist until March 31st then it's gone. I'm glad I didn't wait until around Black Friday to get this, I probably wouldn't be able to because it's been sold out everywhere since pre orders started 2 weeks ago. I seriously doubt this will stay physically re-stocked anywhere for the next 6 months. 😄

My dad bought a N64 on lay away when it first released. I remember when I was young playing that thing ALL the time. Super Mario 64 is still probably my favorite game of all time. Along with Zelda Ocarina of time. Good times. The n64 Mario kart was also probably the best Mario kart game they made too. Game cube double dash was a blast though with a friend.

I'm kinda bummed I wasn't able to get my pre-order of the Xbox Series X. I got as far as getting it in a cart from GameStop then the website decided it was the perfect time to crash. When it came back up it kept sending me to the queue to wait to enter the website. I had to be at work within 10-15 mins after so I gave up. lol I was lucky enough to pre order a PS5 directly from the PlayStation store by invite only. As long as I could get one of them I'm happy. lol

I was starting to think my delivery might be delayed, but about an hour ago Sony emailed me and said my PS5 will be here on launch day Thursday. I'm so glad I registered and was randomly picked to pre-order directly from Sony instead of taking a risk with Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon, etc. Happy (early) Birthday to me!:D

*I got the digital edition version btw. I feel like I'm the only one who bothered to get that one. lol

EDIT: I ordered a second controller and a charging stand that was supposed to come on October 30th, but it came 2 days early on October 28th. I was surprised, I don't think FedEx was supposed to do that. :p
