Over the past two weeks I’ve been giving my Xbox console some more love than I usually do. It’s on the big TV and there’s Gamepass so there’s bound to be something worth playing or a lot of somethings, actually.
Turns out while there were a few games there worth my time, I ended up going back to Red Dead Redemption 2. The last save state for that game was from 2018 and for whatever reason this time the game stuck with me and I’ve been moving forward in it daily. Even made it finally to Chapter 3.
There was also Flight Sim. This was something I built my PC for but never got around to playing on PC but thought I would give it a try on console. It blew me away and now, more than ever, I’d finally like to play it on PC.
Speaking of PCs and consoles, we kind of have that discussion here again. And I notice as time goes on the line gets thinner and thinner when it comes to needing to own a console to play certain games. With Sony jumping in to publish on PC, there seems to be only Nintendo left.
Although the mod/emulator community have certainly helped to thin that line as well.
But I’ll play Splinter Cell wherever they decide to release it. If they ever do. Ubisoft, it has been 3,597 days since a new Splinter Cell game (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise, remake, BBC radio drama, or VR exclusive) was released.
