I used to work at a movie theatre. Did so for about 13 years. Without those movie releases as landmarks I don't quite know what I was doing with my life. With backlog (and more importantly achievements. ahem Nintendo) I can quantitatively know what I was doing with my life and can reflect on experiences had. Even though the real memory has faded. These are feelings I must have had. The Poseidon Adventure was the first movie I saw in theatres for free as an employee. Back to the Future the first movie I can recall walking out of a theatre. Terminator 2 where i discovered what "too much of a good thing" (popcorn salt) tasted like.

But gaming outside of knowing i picked up a psp on launch day from Walmart or going into try a Wii for the first time and loving Excite Truck but feeling underwhelmed by Zelda doesn't resonate with me in the same way. I owned an Xbox One before a Wii because of this experience. Going into stores and buying games resonates with me much more than the experience of playing games. Outside of PUBG, I struggle to recall many moments in games. All the turns in Burnout would be a surprise to me. So i just buy games. I'm like the billionaire that plays low-stakes games. I'm there for the ambience. I hold no regard for my digital backlog. But my physical back log. Those get my full attention or at least booted up. Achievements are kind of the reason that i even plow through a backlog. It does a good job of archiving my life as good as movies. But the games themselves. It wasn't until awesome games done quick that I saw justification in trying to pierce my backlog. Because one day someone is going to do an expose on the game (i.e. cyberpunk) and if i had played through it that 30 minute Tim Rogers video will bring back some nostalgia. I just don't have time to do it myself, by replaying games.

Kind of already living the dream. Always have. Ideally though i'd like to live somewhere that has multiple languages that i slowly begin to master so i can unlock my mind even further. A job like a Foreman where i have to speak Spanish. While living in Chinatown where i get my groceries in Chinese. Live, dream, and talk to myself (and you folks in English). Vacation in places where i stay long enough get a little competency (Finland, Iceland, and Japan). At some point someone will pay me for that knowledge. I'm already quite happy with none of that but it colors some major life decisions.

Well since i can't get my greasy paws on a dual sense to test out the controller for my self. And sense I've got a digital PS5 queued up in my cart at bestbuy (my 4th choice of next gen) it got me thinking. Where among all innovations since the NES controller does the dual sense fit in. If this were the original Wii launch and and we were in the midst of a pandemic i'd imagine people would be on AOL shouting to the rafters out motion control innovation. We know they would be filthy liars and I'm sure something similar is going on with dual dense and people are just humble bragging about something that was all the rage on the switch launch too. Something something.. how many balls. So place this piece of tech between two other pieces of innovation tech bread (i.e. n64 analog stick and kinect for 360) with no regard to chronology and let me know.. INnovation or inNOvation.

@ripelivejam: Maerio seems like a Bakalar dig. I watched #The Wizard yesterday and the announcer for gaming Armageddon does say a more Maerio than Mario. But i treat Mario 64 as more canon than The Wizard.

The practice mode in fighting games. I'm trying to get more into 2D games and work on some of the timing based gameplay those types of games require. If I ever get good at Mortal Kombat it will be because i spent time working in the training mode. It's something I should have been doing all along but I never have. Here's to new horizons.

@bigsocrates: Like i said 1/2 of the allotment goes to the wolves (so grandma who needs to recognize that Johnny has a minecraft or fortnite addiction so maybe getting him a console is bad for your bloodline and legacy can still get one). But do different contests on consoles. Get 10K gamerscore and increase your chances... etc. Right now, I have no way to secure a series x or ps5 right now. If putting up 10K gamerscore in the month of january increased my chances by 200%, 300%, or anything that is better than what is currently in place. Nothing (200% of nothing is still nothing.. oh they message board police are foaming at the mouth for that red meat). There should be defintive get 50K gamerscore get a series X- guaranteed program going on right now.

nobody is saying "botched" from a companies perspective. your tattooed brands are showing. (that's a lovely lower back Linkle)that's what is wrong with gamers. They act like stockholders. IDK maybe poaching other customers means they buy your older system and use gamepass and milk that cow for all she's worth, get that gamerscore and get their new system. If people are paying double for a system. I'm done. I need some credentials bud.

@ramone: Rendered speechless. This rollout could have been perfect. There are certain percentage of people that are in hot pursuit of a 10K gamerscore so they can convert that in funny money xbox rewards. They coudl have gamefied this whole thing and we'd be happy to wait. Please do say something so iI don't think it's the mic drop i know it to be.

Botched launch. There should be a little buy it now button on my xbox one or ps4 that allowed me to buy a console, with priority given to gamerscore, digital purchases, and loyalty. Who cares about joy average that can't walk into a store and buy a console. If you don't already have a decent gamerscore or trophy collection then you're are a scalper PERIOD. They have sold primarily to scalpers. I'd be alot less bitter if they had 1/2 the allotment going to the wolves in retail store and the other half being systematically sold to people with better gamerscores or consecutive years of live or psPlus. In my own personal protest I don't see myself buying these until i can get used disc versions and i'm not buying jack digitally every again. They messed this up. Forcing me to do a 2021- 2D digital only games so I don't feel totally stepped on. Ferrari and Bugati would never piss off their current owners. Look at what they do.

@sessh: The ticking over of Kudos for Project Gotham Racing is a sound firmly ingrained in my mind and was kind of the start of me understanding and thirsting for achievements. It was a precursor, for me, for what i wanted out of racing game and got in Burnout. When achievements became a thing on 360 I knew what they were aiming for.
