I'm ashamed to admit that I will buy a PS4 solely for this, and my wife and kids won't see me at night

I've warned the lady, but she has no idea what's in store. I'll probably be that dude that cancels dinner reservations or makes some weird ass excuse to not do couples shit so I can work towards that one random ass trophy on my way to platinum status. Red Dead was so immersive and had so much to do, there's no reason this won't up the ante.

I actually wish I could platinum Red Dead on PS4, but I think it's only on that monthly subscription thing they do. I may do the free 7 day trial just to see if I can 100% it in the time frame.

Microsoft announced Xbox All Access today, a new plan that includes subscriptions to Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass, as well as Xbox One hardware, for a discounted monthly fee.

According to VentureBeat, which cites a now-pulled Xbox Wire article, Xbox All Access will help new customers finance a console and pay less than they would buying the hardware and services separately.

There are two tiers of Xbox All Access: For $21.99 per month, subscribers will get an Xbox One S, in addition to Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass; and for $34.99 per month, subscribers will get an Xbox One X, in addition to Xbox Live Gold and Game Pass. There is no upfront cost, Microsoft said, and at the end of the 24-month subscription period, Xbox All Access members keep the Xbox One hardware they’ve paid for.

Playing Persona 5. It's rather life consuming.

Started playing it but put it down in lieu of a couple of other games.  It looks like it will be around 80-100 hrs to complete and I wanted to knock out a couple of 20-40 hr ones first.  Looks pretty cool so far.

The Spiderman game is pretty damn fun.  I'm about 20% done and, so far, the main story is keeping me interested but it's biggest asset is traversing through the city swinging by webs.  It's one of the few games that you will discourage you from using fast travel.

Finished "Spiderman" at 100%...that thing was phenomenally done.  Not only fun but, story-wise, pretty true to the spirit of the Spiderman comics I grew up on.

Definitely recommend - 9/10

Up next, "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey" in about a week.  They've tweaked the "Assassin's Creed" formula to incorporate more RPG elements and some are comparing it to a classic BioWare release so I'm on board.

Along with "AC: Odyssey", "Fallout 76" is something I'll be playing on-line with my son and I'm sure I'll pick up "Red Dead Redemption 2" before the end of the year.  After the new year, I'll be grabbing "Anthem" when it comes out on 02/22/2019.  If anyone here plays on either PS4 or XBox One and is thinking of grabbing a copy, I'll be on there as well.

About 7 hrs in on "AC: Odyssey" and loving it so far.  If enjoyed "Origins" you would enjoy this one as well.

So far, missions are fun and diverse, good dialogue and character models, more RPG elements...it's a solid entry.

What's the best racing game? Wanted to get one to mess around with and customize some cars. EA is doing a dealer sale on the PS Store and they have Need for Speed: Payback for pretty cheap, but the game sounds like shit. Is it the latest Fran Turismo that is the top dog? Can you customize cars or is it still a super sim?

That one and the new F1 game seem to be top of the list. I'm going to try and find a demo of Forza.

Mixer or Twitch channels are probably going to at least show you the features...
