Phantasy Star IV: Man, this game is beast. Really holds up well too, totally could pass as a "new retro" release today. The difficulty is perfect, not omg hard but not a walk in the park either.

Rogue Galaxy: Downloaded this day one it was released as a PS2 Classic on PS4...have been playing it since, huge amount of content and it's one of the best PS2 JRPGs you'll play. OCD people be warned though, there is almost too many things to accomplish in this game. I've picked a more chill playthrough style, since I have enough stress in my life already!

Sonic 2: No save states or cheats...straight up old school, I'm stuck on that damn air ship. :x And when I say "stuck", got there once, made some progress then hit a progress wall with some of the platforming, nerd raged and haven't revisited it since. Need to get that monkey off my back!

I also play a lot of older games for just a few minutes, get bored and move on to something else.

I own both the monitors you guys are talking about, linked below. While the Asus is overkill in terms of refresh rate for current consoles, with consoles the colors really pop, it has a very high contrast level, which goes along nicely with the deep blacks it produces. The colors are not washed out like the BenQ as well and it's just as fast when it comes to consoles. Though the BenQ is also great as well, just compared side by side to the Asus, it's not really a contest which looks better. The downside to the Asus is there is only one HDMI input, though if you wanna hook your PC up to it as well, which I suggest since it does do 144hz, it has a DVI input for your PC.

I don't think you can go wrong with a cheap wired 360 controller for new games, games that don't require a good d-pad or just use analog controls. You're talking like $30USD for that. Then for retro games, I use a "Fighting Commander" from Hori. Sweet pad for emulation. 6 buttons on the face and a nice d-pad as well. The states got an oddly shaped one, but you can import one for like $30USD as shown in the pic. For like $60 you got yourself two controllers that will fill pretty much any need you'll have with no worries about driver issues. As long as wireless isn't a must, I really like these two for PC gaming.

Man, this is a major disappointment. Ever since the trailer dropped for this game, it had my interest, looking to capture some of that Ico magic while making a name as a new IP. The developers, Tequila Works, stated that they are "working hard to realize its aspirations for it." which would support the speculation going around that while there was a trailer, an actual game was either not up to snuff with said trailer or development had stalled all together. Either way, this really blows, hoping things turn around and this gets a multi-plat release but from the sounds of things, this could very well end up being vaporware.

I think you could finish Sunset Overdrive and Dishonored in a weeks time depending on how much you play. Some of those other games, not so much, at least with my "gotta see everything" play style.

Minecraft. It's one of those games that seems to have the potential to steal all your gaming time. Like WoW and others. I guess it boils down to games with higher end time sinks that seemingly steal time from other games. I know this can vary from person to person but some games just seem to be built that way. So many good games out there to enjoy.

Just an update, the Microsoft refund for $124.98 went through. I'm actually pretty impressed with how they handled my situation and how fast they got my money back to me. They don't seem to be ing around.

The freezing seems to be linked to the Miiverse. It scared the &*%$ out of me the first time it happened. Personally, I'm on the fence recommending it to people. On one hand, it's a fun system but on the other, the freezing can be a headache. You can take some steps though to get rid of the freezing by disable some Miiverse settings, making it English only, clearing the update for Nintendo Land and redownloading it, or rolling with no Internet connection until they get it sorted out. I deleted my Nintendo Land update and redownloaded and I run the system without an Internet connection and all is good now.

If paying for something and not being able to use it to full potential because of bugs gets on your nerves, by all means wait. If you don't mind making a couple tweaks, jump in.
