I saved a 13" crt tv/dvd combo from getting binned and I'm playing Panzer Dragoon Saga right now. Heck, it looks so much better this way.

Very happy.

Also playing Switch Panzer Dragoon:Remake on the 42" screen right next to the old crt.
Thoughts and prayers.

Samurai Shodown has an option to turn the weapons off turning it into a really really simple fighting game with no moves

Mopping up the side content in Yakuza 6 right now. The main story has really grown on me now and I kind of want to just finish the game to see how it ends, but I've ignored a lot of the other stuff up until now. It does suck how there's no coliseum, and certain parts of the map are blocked off in this game, but there's other cool stuff. The spearfishing is fun and having faithful Virtua Fighter 5, Outrun, Super Hang-On and Space Harrier games in the Club Sega is ace.

Also still dipping in and out of Streets of Rage 4. I've completed the story with all of the characters now. As far as the new ones go, Lloyd is just too slow to enjoy playing as. Cherry is actually pretty fun because her combos are crazy. I've found that you can DESTROY a lot of the bosses by using her flying knee attack to bounce them off a wall, turn around and hit them with her guitar, follow-up with her star special/super move, and then STILL hit them some more.

The older characters are probably still the most satisfying to play as though. SoR3 Axel is a beast and Shiva is so over-powered that it's mental.

Then there is the mighty Max and his piledriver of justice.

Farming Simulator 19 on the PS4, Hooked on this at the minute, Just hiring workers to do everything, going to slowly see if I can get the platinum before I get bored.

Horizon Zero Dawn - Solid in places, it just seems to go zero to 100 with no warning, story seems ok at the minute, game looks great, having fun with photomode too.

I don't know why I wrote that. I meant that knee drop attack where you grab them from behind.
