The Nintendo Direct yesterday was pretty solid. Tears of the Kingdom is just a few months away and they dropped a remastered Metroid Prime on the E-Shop last night, which was awesome. My Switch will be getting a lot of attention over the next few days. ;D

The first computer game I was totally obsessed with was Myst, in the mid 90ís.

Thereís a new version out on iOS.  :D

X-Plane is the only "game" for me - sorry, it's actually a simulator - and flight simulation has been a source of joy as a hobby for me since Microsoft Flight Simulator '98. I also like the new MSFS but it's still got a lot of kinks, it's not a great systems simulator, it has some wonky flight physics, and X-Plane airports have all the correct taxiway markings and navigational aids that correspond to my set of Jeppesen charts and Navigraph. MSFS is a good VFR flight simulator, though due to it's advantage in scenery.

Hold on, people! The man's talking about waste management. That affects the whole damn planet.

Downloaded a couple of my favorite LucasArts games for XBOX today:

Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb
Mercenaires

I had no idea these were available through the Microsoft store, so finding them for cheap brought back a lot of memories.

I don't play games as much as I used to, but I'll always make time for a new Zelda game. It's one of the few series that still delivers and keeps me invested.

Back in my high school days I had 3 buddies who'd come by my place on a Friday/Saturday night. We'd have a few drinks and play Tecmo Bowl before going out to whatever party was happening that night. Bo Jackson was almost unstoppable. Good times.

Another great game was the Nintendo Ice Hockey where you could be the fat, skinny, or medium guys. In high school I had such a heated rivalry with my buddy who lived close by that we started keeping a list of who won.

I am half way through playing Metal Gear Solid 4, on the PS3. I think my last save, was dated August 2012 haha. Im not kidding.
I keep meaning to get back into playing the game. Heres the thing tho, I cheated to get to where i am in the game. For the first time ever, i used a walkthro guide to play the whole game. I feel thats cheating, so i might restart the game from scratch and only refer to guides if i get really stuck.
Heres another thing. Many people rave about the cut scenes in this game. I find them to be a pain, and i generally skip em. Am i missing out?

I always struggled with the Metal Gear games, mostly because they're more like movies than video games. I know the long cutscenes and crazy plots are just part of the series, but I could never get fully invested in it.
