This song is catchy AF and these boys aren't bad. K-pop is alright.

PGA Tour 2K21 was released recently and I've seen decent things, look that up. Also on sale on PSN for another few hours.

Lol I gave up on TWD years ago, a bit after Negan burst onto the scene. Show just got too dark (even for me), and combine that with all the other shit going on in the real world I didn't need to take up any more hours seeing the worst that humanity could do. I was reminded of something either the writers of TWD (the comic, although maybe the tv series too) or someone connected closely to it said: ultimately, the zombies aren't the biggest enemies...it's your fellow human beings. That stuck with me.

Similar reasoning for why I just couldn't get too much into Man in the High Castle either. That alternative reality stuff is typically my jam...but when real life starts looking a little too similar I don't need it as much. It's not really escapism if the shit's trying to happen in your backyard...I said what I said.

I've got thoughts about Michigan, and maybe someday down the line I'll put them down but for now it's simply this: time for Jim Harbaugh to go.

It's time...not ashamed one bit to admit this is probably my favorite Christmas song.

Beat Saber is definitely fun, especially if you liked the rhythm games from the past...just the next step up.

Also downloaded BoxVR since it was on sale; not many frills but a decent way to get a cardio workout in.

Iron Man VR is currently on sale as well, so I'll be downloading that in a bit. Heard good things.

Maybe trying to play football during a poorly managed pandemic was a bad idea.

Over 25 years later and this theme still slaps.

I'd heard this game was shorter than the first.

Definitely need your tv still...the PS VR set up comes with two Move controllers, a receiver, and the Playstation camera. Part of the reason it took me so long to get around to setting up was because the setup just looked time consuming and complex. It really isn't but I was just lazy lol...took me all of 10 minutes to get everything together.

I don't have much space, but I'm at least six feet away from the camera. Camera takes into account how much space you have but it still advises you have an area clear so you don't inadvertently bump into anything.

Vader Immortal might look like an RPG but I'm guessing the Move controllers can act as a lightsaber of sorts. I know other games like Rise to Glory and Beat Saber also require a decent amount of movement too so I'm looking forward to that.

Would I have bought one on my own? No, probably not. I've got enough of a backlog and a bunch of other hobbies, and not quite enough time. But since I have it...it's getting used.

Oh, I did do that one...lol. Thought it was something completely different, my bad.

I typically do a lot of the side missions first but I've hit the main story pretty hard early. One big twist already for sure.

Definitely going to tackle some of the token and side mission stuff today though.

I don't know what the answer is for Michigan at this point...do I think Harbaugh has some fight left in him? Yeah, more than likely. But if he can't transmit that fire or urgency to his players, then that's a big problem. Like I said a couple weeks ago, I don't think he gets fired (still recruits well, and the student athletes perform in the classroom up to that Michigan standard...say what you want but that's important to the University President and AD). But I can see him leaving on his own. That's the most realistic scenario IMO.

I also think this season probably won't finish out for anyone (geez, who knew that playing a sport like this one during a pandemic would be a dangerous and foolhardy idea).

Other random thought: if you'd have told me a month ago that after four games the Detroit Lions would have more wins than the Nittany Lions, I'd have laughed at you. Losing to woeful Nebraska and that chump Scott Frost is about as low as it can get.
