It definitely isn't normal, and I even feel like there's a little more to it than just video game release dates.

We've got a stupid as fuck temp law here, where no one, and I mean no one, is allowed 6ft near one another. Stores are only allowing 5 people in at a time, no cash in hand allowed, have tow ear gloves, only one tin of soup per person (same for pasta), game stores temp closing down, night clubs/pubs shut down until further notice, and restaurants just flat out not serving, takeouts not taking cash in hand, as well as dropping the food at your doorstep, no matter the weather.


It's absolutely not normal at all, and it's starting to really piss me off. Like holy hell, I don't think I've ever had this much irl frustration in my entire life (I have outstanding bills to pay but no one will accept cash, and the banks are closed...wtf am I supposed to even do?).

That sounds very differnt from how things are in denmark.

Appart from hand sanitisers required used, before entery, and also after leaveing shops, and keeping good distances.... its almost like normal here.
Supermarkets are still fully stocked with everything ect, there arnt limits on what or how much you can buy. Also yes, they want card/plastic, instead of money in hand.

Yes night clubs/pubs are shut down, thats just good common sense.
Restaurants, still have take out here.... and dropping food at doorstep is smart.

You sound like you need that Corona beer more than the other guy.
Did you expect things to just go on as if absolutely nothing was going on, mid a pandemic?

40-60% of the worlds population might get this, and it'll kill untold numbers of the elderly.
Lots of young people will get scaring on their lunges, and be marked forever by it.

Deus Ex (2000) - a game that pushes the boundaries of what the video game medium is capable of to a degree unmatched to this very day.

Yakuza 7 has new game+ and higher difficulty behind a DLC paywall! Wheeeee! If you're a fan of Yakuza or Ryu ga Gotoku Studios in general, you know this is a dirty cockslap to the face. My most anticipated game of the year has been torpedoed into a no-buy. 2020!

I admire your fortitude. 

If it was me in your position and the game was either cyberpunk or halo... I'd fold and buy them day one 



I live in one of the most hard hit countries and I can honestly say that this year has been almost exclusively positive for me. My introversion is no longer treated as weird, but as heroism, I work less and from home, despite my employer previously saying that was impossible. My lifestyle hasn't changed a bit.

The only negative thing I can think of is that I am currently unsure if my fully planned Japan trip this October is still gonna happen. And if it is not I'm gonna save a shit ton of money. Can't wait what cool things 2021 has in store for me.

Pretty similar for me. As I am a programmer, I can without problem work at home. But my employer was before not fond of this idea. Now I have no problem doing that. And as I am introverted as well, many of my social contacts are internet anyways. So yeah, I feel not too much constricted.

A pity about that Japan trip though. Maybe until October it is all over, we will see.

As a Xbox gamer I’m pretty content. Wife home because of the pandemic, more Xbox time, Xbox news is plenty and positive.



Xbox: Best hardware, Game Pass best value, best BC, more 1st party genres and multiplayer titles. 

 

Weirdly enough, I got more work opportunity at my job since the COVID screwed almost everyone here.
Ima gonna be rich !

Now, on the gaming side, we're getting a JRPG heavy year which is fine by me since most of them have catches my attention tion since long.

Yes, you could say this year definitely feels ... Paranormal 👻

Yeah, I certainly have different expectations for this year. I'm probably going to focus on retro gaming and collecting this year... which is something I started doing a while back (so sort of a natural progression for me).

This year has been absolutely wank for me, and it all started before the coronavirus pandemic anyway, but it's only made things harder/worse... yay -.-"
