Hi TAY, another week. Another week of bills. And another week of tempting things to consider for future purchases. It’s not as though we didn’t know the PlayStation 5 was in the works but hearing some kind of confirmation just makes it all the more tangible.

What do I need to sell to get one? Has anyone ever done trade-ins? It’s not something I’ve done because I like to hold on to my consoles, given my large backlog that I keep telling myself I’ll work on (Actually, I’m doing well! I beat Nier: Automata and Yakuza 0 in the past two weeks. Currently picked back up the journey with Tales of Vesperia.)

I don’t have good luck with consoles, honestly. I always get lemons. Sometimes major malfunctions, other times little annoyances. But such is my fate. Will this happen to me and my PS5? Yeah, probably. It’s a curse of mine. But in the meanwhile, I get to plan what’s a game necessity and what’s not for the coming year, so I can put money towards the next PlayStation.

I really did not need that notification that my figure of Dragon Quest XI’s Erik shipped... oh bother.

For today’s suggested topics:

  • PS5 - are you interested?
  • What game purchases are in your future?
  • What’s the last game you finished, and if you have a backlog, did you wipe one off the list?
  • Have you had any lemon purchases?
