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.
