Finally decided to download the DLC for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 having hoped for a discount for but never getting one. Briefly tried it and the boss is really giving me a difficult time, he's very aggressive and he has a ton of health and I'm really out of practice.

Another another few shots at the DLC boss and with the right equipment, I found him more manageable.
Am now going to deal with battle mode stuff.

Also bought Red Dead Redemption 2 Ultimate Edition on PS4.

I finished the DLC for Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 3 and I have started on Crysis 3, where I'm about halfway though the story mode.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 Specialist Edition - I bought these doing EB Games Boxing Day sale.

Playing the hell out of Red Alert 3 Uprising. I bought the original game when it came out, but for some reason I hadn't bought the extension until yesterday. How did I miss that???

Well, I finally did it.

I now own a Nintendo Switch. I do have to admit, it’s kind of fun. I picked up Mega Man 11 for it and downloaded Senran Kagura Reflexions, And I’m enjoying both games.

What I’d like to know is if there’s a way to turn the WiFi connection off so I can extend the battery life. At least, I’m guessing that would work. Is does for the Vita and the 3DS.

EDIT: So after a week without plugging it in and sporadic play(which is what I do with the Vita as well. I need more free time), the battery is down to 32%. From all the battery life horror stories I heard, I figured it would have died by now. I'm impressed.

Finished a playthrough of Crysis 3, I'm now doing a bit of clean up of upgrades and what not before taking a shot at beating the game on the hardest difficulty.

Bought the steel book edition of the Resident Evil 2 remake.

Also, a few weeks ago I bought the Sega Mega Drive version of Mighty Morphin power Rangers: The Movie from the U.K.

Interesting finds over the past few weeks.

Resident Evil 2 Deluxe Edition GameStop Preorder- well, that’s a mouthful. I recommend the Albert version of the Samurai Edge. It’s a lot better than Claire’s starting gun.

Okay, okay, that first one wasn’t all that interesting.

SNK Heroines Tag Team Frenzy for the Switch- haven’t tried it yet, but it looks like fun.

Hmmm.... unless you’re into fighting games, that might not be too interesting. For the Vita fans among us.... assuming there’s more than just me....

MLB15: The Show for the Vita. The most remarkable thing about it, really is where I found it. On sale at WalMart. I’m not sure if this particular WalMart just had a box of games stuffed back in a corner and dragged them out to sell for 3 bucks a pop, or if they got them by accident, but whatever their source, it looks like they were leftovers from somewhere, as their entire stock was 6 copies of MLB12, and 1 copy of MLB15. And as this is the only way I can watch my Phillies play, I’ll take it.

And for the real surprise find....

Transformers Beast Wars: Transmetals for the PS1- found this one at the local used game store. I missed my copy of this game. It was a lot of fun. It still is.

Before the turn of the year my order of Smash Bros Ultimate came in. Really good fun! Anything that was ever in Smash is in it, levels, characters, etc. Basically just chock full of stuff. Mostly the same game modes as before, but with a new 'World of Light' mode that plays a little RPG-ish. On that note, trophies have been (sadly, IMO) replaced with Spirits. The spirits grant you extra abilities and what-not, but I really miss the little trophy collection of 3D rendered characters and things from all over gaming. Overall very fun still, and excellent to pick up and play for a few minutes here and there.

I also dipped into Nintendo Switch Online, which is really cheap for a year's worth of membership, but doesn't offer too much. It did give me access to quite a few NES games to play, which is nice.

Otherwise I haven't had much time to game at all. I played the seasonal (January) Darkening of Tristram event on Diablo 3 Switch, and I still haven't finished Doom yet. I think I'm over half-way done, just felt like I needed a break from the adrenaline pumping run-and-gun. Additionally, I've been trying to update my NBA 2K18 roster (I'm too cheap to upgrade to '19 yet) to accommodate for the recent trade deadline.

Oh, and I guess I picked up Transformers: Cybertron Adventures for the Wii. This was something I used to own long ago, which irked me enough to buy a Xbox 360 to play the real Transformers games instead. I don't own any of those anymore, so I figured I would give the Wii one a second shot. It's fun, but nothing special. At least it was only $5.
