not me, but a couple of my friends have a PS5, and they've been having a good time with them—apparently haptic feedback and adaptive triggers are the real deal
meanwhile, i don't know anyone with a sexbox, and i'm pretty sure most people don't even understand that it's a next gen console—they Wii U'd themselves pretty hard with the marketing on that one (perhaps intentionally as an excuse to exit the console race, which they've supposedly been trying to do for a while now or something)
I've heard positive things about the controller too. Though apparently there are some reliability issues?
The 'series' name is stupid. It doesn't sound good, its not easy to pronounce and there are already X and S Xbox-es.
If MS is moving away from consoles and will just be a service provider, I would only be slightly surprised.

Join the PC Mustard Race my friend, never look back.
I actually did, for this gen.
HL Alyx was the game that made me switch and the fact that Infinite will be on PC, add to that the price increase of next-gen games and paying for online play... Things just fell in place.
Built a PC in October and it's been a blast, though I still play on my X1X.
The timing could not be better either. Not only did the supply dry up right after, but Brexit screwed up a lot of local suppliers here. I pity anyone who is trying to build one right now or upgrade.

They recently made F2P games actually free to play on Xbox Live errr Xbox Network. So if they keep HI MP as free to play, you won't even need gold to play it.
The positives end there I think. Cautiously optimistic though since they did have the cop-on to delay it for more than a year.

GF asked me to watch this wedding show with her
I thought it would be all cringe but in the end it was actually entertaining. The producers don't focus too much on that 'Love Island' cheese and don't force drama.

Got an update. He's doin' okay. Might take him some time to respond. We'll all have to wait I'm afraid.
Thanks for the updates.

Before I get running today. Nick is right. You should get your teeth looked at. Leave em' open like that and they'll be liable to start rotting or get infected if the root's exposed. Spending money you don't have is probably the last thing you want to hear.
Unfortunately money's one of the issues we should focus on at the moment. Get you some kind of job to get some kind of paycheck coming in. I'd be willing to bet your fiance is helping to fund ya, but I know that usually doesn't last forever.
So here's what we can try to do. I'm trying to get my truck camper into the parking lot of my workplace so I can cut down both a shit ton of gas money and useless travel time. I'm really trying to crunch down on my money so that I can hit the investment marks I need to bail from my job, but if you want me to, I can manage my books and see how much I can skim off to send your way if you need help. I can't offer much, and conversion rates will pretty much halve whatever I can send to you, but I'll try if that's something you're willing to look into.
Same, PM your paypal or w/e and I'll send some $$$ at least for food for the month.

And you're beating yourself up for nothing too. Be real about this. You still got family. They're all still alive back where you left em. You're still alive to see them.I'm just tired of this, Q. I was in a bad place before this garbage, and now I'm in an even worse spot. I can't eat, I sleep maybe three hours a day because all I dream of is dying, and I don't know what the fuck I should do. The fantasy of abandoning everything is becoming more of a necessity because no one I know really understands. I've alienated myself, and the one person who I thought might understand now just thinks of me as some pill junkie looking for kicks. My own fucking dad OD'd, I refuse ALL pills, but he doesn't see that. No one (except you) believes in me. I'm basically a walking corpse, with the façade I've given them shattered.
You might feel like an ass if you can get back to them. You might feel like an ass just telling them what happened. But they're still there for you, even if you goofed. Ideally, that's what family is. And you really didn't goof from the sounds of it. You met assholes, both corporate and bums on the street. That's not your fault.
Ask yourself a question. Is right now on par with the worst day you've ever had in your life? If it's not, you can beat it. And if it is, then try anyway.
I can only offer one more bit of commentary in the meantime. You've got a girlfriend that gives a shit about you and cares about you. And it sounds like she cares enough about you to help you out. Just go back to her, man. Tell her you're sorry, you tried, and you love her. If she's a decent human being who really gives a fuck about you she'll stand by you. That alone should be enough to get you back up.
Put the ashamed feelings and the desperation aside because they're not going to do you any good. Get up and fight it. Make you a deal. If you can weather the shit that's hitting you right now, then I'm willing to try to keep fighting the shit that's hitting me right now. Come on. You can do it.
I just don't know what to do anymore. No one will hire me, no one trusts me, and I'm basically a stranger in a strange land. My fiancé wants me to see someone, but all they do is push fucking pills. I've had sixteen years of that shit to know that's exactly what's going to happen, and I refuse. I don't want to hear "you just haven't found the right one" anymore. I want to be stable, I want to feel something other than suicidal depression or boiling rage at my own inability to feel the former. I want to be fucking normal.
It just feels like I'm broken, with no way out.
Ok, mate. Do it one small step at a time. No one goes from broken to 'Happy settled down with three kids and a wife'
You want to be stable? What can get you there?
Having a goal is good, now try to see a path there and take it one step at a time. Before crossing the bridge, you have to reach it first.
I think first port of call should be fixing up your jaw. You need to be able to eat to sustain yourself.
Are you able to take care of that now?

Wait, did you sign any contracts? I don't think they can just say you are hired and then hire someone else instead. Unless this is some USA thing where no one has any security.
Why did you abandon your family? Don't give up man. If SC made it, so can you.

Boneless pizza and a two liter coke.
Sorry, all I got is water-based lube and about a kilo of rubber puss. Would that suit?

Lockdown extended till April 18th.
I haven't seen my friends for a year now. Haven't seen my grandparents for over a year.
There were some reports that this was not a bat but some experiment gone wrong since the alleged Wuhan wet market did not actually sell bats and also the other SARS coronavirus variants were not as potent and could not evolve so fast from SARS of 2018/2019.
Whatever caused it, its a poopy-doody and I don't like it.

Its a shit job but a shitty office job is miles better than any customer-facing retail.
Just please don't screw up by coming in to work high or with a post-trip hangover.

I knew Nintendo hates their fans but this is Xbox One E3-tier.
Could it be due to hardware limitations? Third parties moved on from the overclocked gameboy?
