Well the fixed the one thing that has been wrong with them for the past decade. The controls being a damn gimmick. There's no multi screens and no motion control, just buttons. The Joy-Cons gimmicky, but only in a functionality way in how it separates and can be used in various methods. The most important thing is that there are buttons to use, and 1 screen. 3rd party developers don't want to put in the extra work. I expect mostly ports from them, and its important that they can port games from XB1/PS4. Sure there will be some exclusives here and there, but cross platform titles is what Nintendo has been lacking for years becasue of how extremely different their console was. They finally found a way to be innovative without screwing around with how a game works.
If they put a killer price like $299 I'd pick one up for Breath of the Wild and the new Mario. Honestly this is Nintendo's best idea in years. If something like this came out a decade ago, I would have used it mobility feature a lot bringing it over to friends houses to play smash bros. Hell a real Goldeneye remake would be sweet in that situation. Have a faux lan-party with a few friends on multiplayer.

I could see me using the portability while at the laundromat. But then again that's only because I don't have anything to keep me distracted from snacking. I'd have nothing against a non-portable version.

I took almost everything that wasn't games & put them into a folder that was labeled Not Games. I say almost as some didn't have a folder option. Still I would've preferred to erase them all. Including PS Room because I don't intend on buying whatever it needs anytime soon.

There I was free to be whoever I wanted to be. But soon I would find myself harpooned. Oh if only I remembered my native language & could go to the future. There I could communicate with my future brethren that I don't want to live on this planet anymore.
Seriously the PS4 has turned me into a humpback whale.
As for Star Trek Online (on PS4) I find it okay.
It's kind of buggy when it comes to certain things. Spaceship fights rarely look cool as it feels like I'm control a dislocated turret. Traveling through space can get boring as I can't just warp to other solar systems. The voice acting, lip syncing, & lack of voice acting make interactions seem awkward. The ground combat could be more fun if auto lock-on didn't need to be held & if it didn't targeting friendly NPCs. But the only real reason to why I'm playing Star Trek Online is because playable Anthros. The Cat Anthros I had to buy with Zen, which I had to buy with real money.
So far I've made
A Gorn named Mister Pilkington of the IKS Venezuela. Technically my Number 2 as my Number 1 Mister Pilkington is in ESO. A Female Caitian named Maggie Reed of the USS Ohio. I don't know why she doesn't wear underwear in that miniskirt uniform I bought her. A Female Ferasan named Maya of the IKS Pandora. I don't know if she has the same underwear issue as Maggie Reed. Kudos if you get the references to the characters I made.

If I had any hype for No Man's Sky it was probably very little that quickly died off. That plus it didn't help that I got Rebel Galaxy for free or that Master Of Orion really grabbed my interest due to the Mrrshan.

I already have Remember Me for PS3 from PS Plus. I came to hate it as the protagonist had a habit of beating up mentally ill people.
I kind of want Okami, but I had it for the Wii. And would rather just buy it again even if it's limited to PS3.
I think I only really liked Resident Evil 2 out of the whole RE franchise. I just can't get myself into other RE Games like I wish I could.
I think I remember playing Devil May Cry 4 & DMC. I found them okay.
I never played a Lost Plant game as far as I can remember. I think it would get lost though after how many Space Games come out now with forgettable solar systems.

I'm back to playing Dark Souls as of today.
I thought about naming my new female thief, Rodham after Hillary Rodham Clinton. But that seemed like an insult to thieves. Perhaps Rodham will be the name of my Dark Souls 2 female.
My new female thief is now named Mjoll. She is named after Mjoll The Lioness from Skyrim. It also serves as a reminder that my ultimate goal is to get Ornstein's Armor. Though if Mjoll were real she'd be insulted as she hates The Thieves Guild.
The major difference between Jenny & Mjoll will be the fact Jenny was a Glass Cannon.
Personal Goals Achieved (Again)
I defeated The Asylum Demon again & got it's Demon's Great Hammer. Though this time around I won't be leveling up my strength to wield it for a long time. After raising my Faith to 14 I went back to the Valley Of Drakes to pillage the corpses around that Undead Dragon. (I decided to permanently lose 6 Souls.) I'm glad to have Astora's Straight Sword again. I don't remember using it last time but I'm also glad to have the Dragon Crest Shield again. Then I used the (consumable) Souls on me so I could get my strength up to 10. I easily bought all of the key items of the Male Undead Merchant in Undeadburg again. The Bottomless Box is a necessity when you don't have a way to sell items. I once again murdered a Crystal Lizard in Undeadburg for Twinkling Titanite. Upgraded Astora's Straight Sword to +2. Now I just one hit kill all Hollows unless I need to shield break them first. I bought a Spear.... Because I might need it later & didn't want to wait for it to be a "Rare Drop". Had to raise my strength to 11. Current Personal Goals
Raise Vitality to the 30 or 50 soft cap. Raise Endurance to the 40 soft cap. Upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Titanite Shards. Go through Blighttown. Most likely defeat Maneater Mildred. And upgrade spear then armor if I get enough Large Titanite Shards. Remember to equip the Crimson set I will find once I'm at the first bonfire in The Great Hollow. If it doesn't prevent curse I'll hopefully have enough health to fight ghosts in New Londo. Where I will hopefully find the Cursebite Ring & remove curse. Hope that raising my Strength to 11 to equip a Spear to fight Basilisks was worth it. Farm for Twinkling Titanite at Ash Lake. (Maybe I'll need to defeat that Hydra there so that might be my first mini boss fight in this play through.) And maybe Tail Cut the Stone Dragon for a sword I won't be using anytime soon. After all of that I guess I debate whether I defeat the Undead Dragon in the Valley Of Drakes, Haval The Rock in Undeadburg, or both. (Both seems like a great idea for making victory laps around the areas!) Also remember to defeat Halberd Black Knight in Darkroot Basin as it's near a Bonfire I'll be using.

Everything that was in that video was also in the beta version I got. Hopefully more people will play Big City Stories since it isn't tied to PS Home like Home Tycoon was.
Purely my experience with Big City Stories so far.
Plenty of NPCs & my avatar's head tend to clip through car roofs. My avatar's head clipping issue was fixed when I made it shorter in height. Its easier to run over zombies than shoot them. There's suppose to be ammo I can find, but I never found it. A Gas Station is a must for refueling cars during this activity. I should probably try this activity again with a topless car. I don't know if zombies can kill me but I doubt it. Also you can't run over people who aren't zombies. Some small objects I placed in the game clipped through the ground. I found this out sometime after trying to pull a Chris Christie at the bridge entrance. Big City Stories > Home Tycoon
Naming The City & customizable signs. (Such as Here Lies Andy Peperoni & Cheese) Buildings can be upgraded. Driving isn't behind a paywall like it originally was in Home Tycoon. You can "borrow" any car you see driving around. And even make a little money as an Uber Driver. Though being an Uber Driver isn't as fun I'd hope. I was hoping for something more like Crazy Taxi. Collecting Cash (or Electricity) in the overhead map doesn't require workers. But it now feels a bit more or less tedious. Hospitals & Zoos (& maybe Nuclear Power Plants) are free. One of the new cars driving around, the Crusader, has easily became my favorite. (Its the one that looks like a Modern Day Muscle Car) Home Tycoon didn't have a Zombie Activity. The Water Tower isn't red so I can stop imagining Rico Rodriguez destroying it. Big City Stories < Home Tycoon
Big City Stories lacks the floating suitcases that randomly gave cash or workers. I don't think they're coming back. Big City Stories lacks Helicopters. I don't know if they're coming back or being replaced. Big City Stories (Currently) lacks Activities & by extension actual story missions for the Fire Department & Hospital. I miss that loud mouth Fire Fighter already. Currently there are no Sports Stadiums. Home Tycoon had Football, Football (Soccer), & Olympic Stadiums. The Former 2 you had to actually buy. If they come back I expect them to be expansions. There are no "illegal" street races (they were part of a Home Tycoon expansion). But maybe they'll comeback. Part of me thinks the Garage Mechanic might replace the Vin Diesel parody character. I miss the bickering that use to happen between the pro-environment business & anti-environment business. That's probably gone because it was easier to side with the one that was better for the environment. Housing in Big City Stories doesn't generate money like it did in Home Tycoon. Big City Stories doesn't have a building that ties into Novus Prime. Big City Stories replaced Home Tycoon's Giant Black Panther with an Elephant when it comes to the Zoo. Beyond that I had 2 pics from Home Tycoon. One was with The Zoo's Big Black Panther. The other one was The "Nude" Beach. In that last pic you can barely see The Novus Prime Building near The Town Hall with Donut Shop behind it.
You can find those pics in the 2nd link to this link once you scroll down to "Re: Epic Avatar Pix: 10 Pic Trophy" as I've posted about these pics before.

Part of me probably shouldn't have an opinion on Steam Greenlight as all my examples of why Steam Greenlight is bad come from Jim Sterling.
Back to Pokémon Go I would probably get this in hopes I could find Meowth/Persian & Purrloin/Liepard if I wasn't waiting for Augmented Reality Glasses.

Its a Free To Play game that is still in Beta. Its based off of Home Tycoon which you could only play on PS Home. I got my Beta Key on Friday, but didn't start playing until after 12 AM ET. Its still kind of buggy but I'm enjoying it about as much as I did Home Tycoon.
It differs greatly from Home Tycoon however by how building effect an area instead of a whole city. Electricity as far as I can tell acts the same way as money. You collect it in a certain area & later spend it. Workers are still the most boring part that they brought back from Home Tycoon to BCS. Whether its better or worse Workers regenerate at certain buildings. So its best not to destroy the worker building you're given unless you intend on spending real money.
Graphically it looks better than Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (as in without mods). But then again SR2 & PSH look better than ES IV. Comparing BCS to just HT I'd say overall that BCS looks better. Well except for BCS avatar creation which looks kind of goofy.
There are features coming to BCS according to options that aren't available yet. But I won't be typing about those until they're actually available.
I might not spend any real money on BCS until its available to everyone as I rather not risk wasting my money.

I think this is just Nintendo slowly losing its ego it gained from over 30 years ago when it was declared The Savior Of Console Gaming. Sure Microsoft & Sony have their own problems when they think they can control the gaming industry. But Nintendo also had ego problems back when it was Snes vs. Genesis. IF Nintendo could outlive Microsoft & Sony in the console market part of me would expect certain games to become PC exclusive. This is partly because supposedly its harder to program of Nintendo consoles & its past with censoring games like Mortal Kombat.
Everything that has happened from Japan or Nintendo "Saving" the console industry has resulted in Butterfly Effects. This is in part because consoles had made gaming convenient.
The Sonic fan base existing is simply from Sega needing a mascot to compete against Mario. The ESRB's creation was fueled mostly by console games that non-gamers were outraged by. Sony wanting revenge on Nintendo over PlayStation. Sega's even faster fall out of the console market because PlayStation was a better competitor. Thus resulting in Sonic Fanatics need to let everyone know Sonic can defeat Mario. Microsoft being afraid that Sony would make an OS via PlayStation thus creating Xbox to compete. "Bro Gamers" becoming the average market that Sony & Microsoft would cater to. And Gamer Gate that has happened over the controversies existed before & after Bro Gamers.
Part of these Butterfly Effects go right back into PC Gaming as Console Fanatics were declaring PC Gaming to be Dead. Then you had PC Gamers declaring Steam to be the savior of PC Gaming. Microsoft has now been making shifty moves to show it has been dedicated to PC Gaming. Steam Machine's Linux based existence for fear that Microsoft would force Steam out of the gaming industry.
And finally the plausibly that the worst that might've come from all of this is Steam Greenlight & whatever butterfly effects that will have. Though I'm sure something like Steam Greenlight would've came into existence simply because Smart Phones were going to make gaming convenient anyway.
Now if you excuse me I'm going look at artwork that sexually objectifies Female Khajiits, Argonians, etcetera. Why? Because nowadays from the neck up is way more important to me. Plus anything with a human like face would probably give me a migraine if I stare at it too long.

Saints Row 4 didn't make sense & neither does Gat Out Of Hell. But if you play Gat Out Of Hell before Saints Row 4 expect a major spoiler. On the other hand if you don't play Gat Out Of Hell before Agents Of Mayhem you might spoil one of the endings to Gat Out Of Hell involving Brimstone. Although that was probably already spoiled by this year's E3.
I would be barely looking forward to getting Gat Out Of Hell for free on PS4 if I didn't already buy it bundled with SR4. And I wouldn't have bought that if I didn't want SR4 on PS4 before I got it free for Xbox One. I don't know who to be more mad at. Microsoft for being desperate enough to give out better free games on Xbox One. Or Sony for being able to get away with free mediocre games on PS4.

It doesn't feel like a Resident Evil game. But its way better than Resident Evil 4. I think the only reason to why I played the demo was because I've permanently missed out on the PT hype.
My dislikes for it however are
It basically has the same ending that can happen in different rooms. You can't follow the other guy. Dummy Finger has no purpose. the idea of Ghosts being a part Resident Evil.
