@nomtank: It's definitely a style of show-and-tell that has fallen out of favor with the older GB crew. It's definitely not a bad approach but as someone whose used to picking up on whats on screen and the tone of the delivery it can come across as a little tilted.

Overall I think this IS a solid Animal Crossing, but this QL gives it a pass on some of the stuff which I would find madding after more play-time. The Networking management in particular - each connection taking aminute out of each active users time - and a lot of the UI/UX decisions are so plodding/mashy in a way that we rarely see. I don't think those aspects compare well to recent titles like Stardew or Portia.

Based on the hardware comparisons, Sony are currently doing a better job of marketing a weaker product. Combine that with a successful last-gen for Sony and it looks like the Customers are going to stay on the Sony side of things.

I'm not expecting a PS3 or Xbox One style flip this generation where the incumbent brand completely misses the mark but I would welcome some rebalance between the two - either more event sales figures between MS and Sony, or Sony doubling down on the market success of the PS4 to show show continued improvement.

Ultimately, I favor the Microsoft-Sony duopoly over either side exiting the market. Competition is good for consumers.

Once again, happy to see some ad-hoc content. You don't need the Studio prep to get something on my screen.

I'm still hoping to play Satisfactory sometime - but as much as I want Steam to see competition the Exclusivity Deal stuff still leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Compete on service not on artificial restrictions.

I dont see why Alex doesn't understand Influencer collectives - they totally sprang up around Twitch and Youtubers in the last decade

I'm not sure with XCom 2 is my game, but I'm totally on-board with this format. None of the overhead of a Studio day, just getting some hours on my screen.

@blackheartvinyl: Yeah, I could see that credit going either way. They announced a Console release in October but it didn't hit Xbox until Friday at which point this was already on the CDN. Either way, I'm sure TABS will be okay.

I like to have fun when I play Video Games, you guys
