A-bomb to not being able to watch the show live, or jump into the livestreams due to being a vampire. (Meaning I work third shift. Although I am really pale and have a penchant for Bloody Marys...)

For the question of the week: If I were to get a new console, it would be the PS5. Why? PlayStation has always had more of the games I'm interested in, and without getting into a lengthy story... XBox won't be getting my money for a while. However, I won't be getting either right away. For one, I don't buy first-round consoles due to the history of issues they've had. And second, I won't buy any system until there are at least ten games I want for it. Switch is almost there.

I don't think Fallout 76 will go f2p unless they fix cheating, hacking, modding in there... they did free weekend once and that simply broke game.

Maybe getting the axe was the best thing for the game as this looked more Pixar than Marvel.
