    @rice_sandwich on YouTubers, yeah, the only one I like (haven't tried that many tbf) is Mack, of channels WorthABuy and MacksCorner.

    He's a bit of a zealot but I do like most (not all) of his opinions, and he's dry enough that I enjoy his stuff. Doesn't get overexcited, cynical guy. I like his stuff enough to sponsor him through Patreon, think his output is worth it.

    For what it's worth, my older model PS4 Pro is still an absolute dream compared to my launch PS4, which sounded like a hoover. Even wireless headphones at full blast couldn't mask the sound of that thing trying to take off!

    @andy10 awesome, cheers! I've never been bothered by my launch PS4 so hopefully I'll be OK. Maybe I just have shocking hearing lol

    Do boardgames count? Bought a new chess board and pieces this morning ;). It's a proper wooden set to replace the cardboard and plastic crap we were using. One of my boys has taken an interest, so I thought it would be worth it.

    @Red_Bool I could have given you a metal travel set which includes backgammon, all ina leather case. My wife's decided that we don't need it anymore and tbf, I doubt I'll ever get round to learning to play backgammon properly and I'm indifferent at chess despite having glasses at school.

    I think the consensus earlier in the thread was it only counts if you play it. ;-)

    But... It's a replacement! Or is this considered double dipping? ;)

    Just be glad we're not counting the pieces individually!

    Crap my PS3 is dead, which closes off quite a bit of the backlog I was planning to tackle. So now I have the dilemma of whether to replace it or not.

    Mack? Doesn't get overexcited?

    Don't get me wrong. I'm a subscriber and he's a hoot to listen to and actually shows games that I like, but Mack makes Alex Jones from Infowars seem composed from time to time.

    @GuybrushThreepwood Thanks, but I wanted a proper non-foldable wooden board anyway. Funny thing, I never understood backgammon either :)

    @Red_Bool

    You may want to look at Onitama. It's like a simpler chess game with fewer, randomly drawn pieces with variable movement. Every game you use five different movement cards and these pass between the players. So every game can be quite different. Takes 10-20 minutes per game.

    @Skirlasvoud Hahaha, ok fair point! He's a passionate guy. Misplaced sometimes imo, but we're all only human.

    I mainly mean that he doesn't seem to get too much of a boner over shit games. Doesn't get caught up in hype like a lot of his... er... less discerning contemporaries.

    That does mean the default position is that most things are going to be shit, but I like that tbh! Bit of a palette cleanser.

    Hehehe, yeah I can agree with the latter two points. ;-) Like I said, I DO subscribe to him and to be honest, the misplaced rants are humorous to say the least.

    I'm so out of touch with YouTube that I only watch Jeremy Parrish and Cinemassacre's Mike and Jame's Mondays. They both pretty much share my fascination for 80's and 90's video games and they're equally very passionate about it.

    Neither had to resort to exaggeration in order to appeal. Jeremy Parish in particular couldn't be more down to earth if he tried.

    Anyways, getting back on topic! 6 weeks and still no purchases. I'm technically on an 9 week run, having not bought anything since Xenoblade 2 and Pinball FX 3. Go me!

    My stats: 0 games bought, 2 completed.

    2 games I want to buy (largely because I want to show support to developers, like I'd mentioned a few pages back), but knowing I won't play them any time soon is helping immensely.

    Best decision I made possibly ever. :-)

    4 games bought (5 new games at my disposal though due to kickstarting one ages ago), 3 games beaten, no overlap between the two. I clearly have not understood the thread.

    0 and 0 here. I don't expect to actually complete that many games this year because of the amount of RPGs making up my backlog. I just want to take my time and enjoy them.

    I am looking to wrap up FFXII in the next week or two though.

    Still no purchases and a whopping zero games completed.

    I did finally get the Platinum on Destiny 1 though so that's something.

    0 and 3.

    Who am I kidding. It's 1 and 3 (Bayonetta) soon to be 2 and 3 (birthday present). Perhaps even 3 and 3 (monster hunter with the amazon discount).

    2 games brought.

    1 Game finished.

    Slow start to the year. Which in this case is a good thing.

    @PazJohnMitch Me too - not quite sure how I did it (well, I had one wife- and childless weekend), but I've managed to play MHW for 45 hours since its release.

    I think I have clocked even more. Just unlocked High Rank.

    Not played a game this much (and been at work) since Destiny launched.
