    Anybody playing Call of Duty WWII yet?

    Haven't played a COD in a while.  Is WW2 supposed to be good?

    Played a couple hours of SM Odyssey yesterday.  Fun game!
    Not sure if it's a "10", but it's really well done and I'm having a blast!
    Indeed.  I had to take a little break from it this week.  If I wasn't playing it last weekend, I was watching live streams of it being played.  Didn't want to burn myself out too quickly.  I've beat the boss in the Seaside Kingdoml but then went back to the Cap & Cascade Kingdoms to collect all the purple coins.  Working my way back up from there.
    It looks like the main storyline can be beaten rather swiftly, but there is a lot of post-game content for completionists to go back and do.  Should be fun for the next few months.
    Yeah, I can tell I'm missing a lot.  In going through getting moons I've noticed places that I haven't been too.  Gonna have to go back for sure!

    So Battlefront 2 is going to have micro transitions in order to unlock heroes ... or you can play for 40 hours to unlock Vader.

    Damn it, EA.

    Yeah after BF1 was poorly received (by gamers? ...can't remember) they didn't do themselves any favours with this move.

    I guess EA is lowering the credits it take to unlock after the outcry but it will still take 10 hours to unlock one person or ship.  And it appears the whole game is marred with micro-transitions and progression systems.  I don't have time for that crap.  If this was a free-to-play game so be it, but I don't have the time and I'm not going to pay an additional +$100 for content that should be available right away for a $60 game.

    I have been putting some work into my Raspberry Pi/Retropie.  

    Its been working great.  I have both my bluetooth controllers connecting seamlessly now with power on.  I have a huge stable of games with all metadata scraped, including video previews.  Also found a really appealing theme.  Also got the Playstation emulator up and running.  Added a bunch of Roms to bring my total over 1,500.

    This weekend I played Battletoads, Double Dragon, Ninja Gaiden, GTA 2 for PS, NHL 98, Gradius, and Jackal.

    I've been putting off on getting a RasPi until maybe it gets powerful enough to handle N64 emulation more seamlessly.  That's honestly what I want the most, to go back and play some of those great titles that I missed out on.  I have seen that another single board computer, the oDroid XU4, handles N64 a lot better.  I'm not in a hurry at the moment, so maybe I'll wait a bit until these SBC's get even more powerful.

    Yeah, I never really got into the N64.  I have some games, and they start up no problem, but I never tried playing.  Apparently people overclock their units to enhance the N64 games.
