    The crux of what has traumatized us about CUF/CG is that we thought they were our friends. And their identity as BYU fans turned out to be the most important thing to them. What empty lives! What a damning indictment of the LDS Church!

    Poor grandparents. Playing video games in church and showing shoulder at church. That is a heathening that cannot be undone.

    There are several kids in my ward that don’t want to be there and I wish their parents/grandparents would stop making them come. It would be best for all involved.

    We used to joke with our kids that they had freedom of choice when it came to church attendance: they could come happily or unhappily.

    Red Dead Redemption II is out now. Did anybody pick it up? The first one is one of my favorite video games of all time. Playing through it was such a fun, immersive experience.

    I have it b/c it came w the PS4 that I had to pre-order in order to get one (apparently there is some component that they are having a hard time manufacturing that is causing a PS4 shortage?). And the reason I got a PS4 is so I could play Spiderman, which is pretty unanimously reviewed as a fantastic game. It looks awesome so I decided to get it . I am looking forward to RDR2, though. I also grabbed some used games that are only on the PS4 like Ratchet & Clank, Shadow of the Colossus, God of War, etc.

    I'm currently enjoying the newest iteration of Call of Duty: Black Ops. Good times.

    Our son ended up getting a Nintendo Switch from his rich grandparents for his birthday. It is a really good system. Hollow Knight is great.

    I would love to be better at video games. But the Taco Bell 'put down the chalupa' current ad pretty much describes my gaming skills perfectly, minus being distracted by a chalupa.

    I'm actually quite excited for the upcoming release of Let's Go Eevee and Let's Go Pikachu.

    There is one Pokemon that I'll need the game for to add to my Pokedex in Pokemon Go. Damn you Meltan, damn you to hell!!

    I chuckle every time that commercial comes on. There is some truth to that. Love laughing at someone is just running against a wall. They are either lagging or distracted.

    Yes! The Switch is an absolute marvel and Hollow Knight is awesome. Just got the new Mario Party and that's super fun. I have way too many video games in my life right now-- turns out Red Dead Redemption 2 is one of the best games of all-time so I got a head start on that a little bit this weekend. I played Spiderman a bit- it's fun, too. We're living in a golden age. Fallout 76 comes out here next month, too.

    I'm really impressed with how seamlessly it switches from the TV to handheld. I also have Breath of the Wild, but really have only played about 10-15 minutes of it.

    We bought a switch the day they came out. It has been played once. My kids are academics and athletes, we don't waste our time on video games.

    Heh. Yeah, just today I was talking with one of my nerds, er... students, in our game programming club about making collision detection algorithms in a game she is developing more efficient. They all carry around Switches in their backpacks.

    So has the Switch been worth it? MJ has allowed me to get a console for our younger kids (the ones that actually still play video games) and figured the Switch might be best.

    My kids have loved it. My 9yo son has played Zelda a ton. He has defeated the game in multiple modes and has played the expansion and still isn’t even close to bored with the game. I’m trying to decide which games to get for Christmas this year.

    Fallout 76 is getting dismal reviews. I don't think it's a bad game at all-- I see the complaints, though; it's been pretty buggy as you would certainly expect a game of this magnitude (reportedly the biggest Fallout world to date) as an online game to be. I've been kicked offline a few times and got a frozen screen once so far in about maybe 10 hours of play-- all things that annoyingly make you restart where your last checkpoint or save was. Luckily, in this era game companies can fix buggy games with automatically downloading online patches. It'll probably be up to speed by Christmas, even though the reviews at launch may continue to haunt it, as they have with Star Wars Battlefront 2.

    This site is my go-to for checking out reviews. Kind of like a rotten tomatoes, but including games.

    Meh. Reviews have those in the low 80s. Mario Odyssey is a 97. Probably a safer pick.
