Man, it has been years! How is everyone? I have 5 kids, 3 jobs and a mini farm...so it is basically impossible to play videogames anymore. I am actually selling off my whole collection in a few months, I just don't know if I will get fair value for everything. I really thought when I left that I made Malakai and Matt full admins and I rarely use that old email address on file...if you need to reach me fast, try stevendiiorio@gmail.com

Well, I know about the farm thing, since I've been doing it for the last few years myself, but since I have my first child coming in June, I've had to scale back (majorly) on the farm and gardening front. I hope to keep my goats even after the baby is born, but right now, who really knows? I understand about the video games issue, but since I spend so much time away from home, basically as a caretaker role, I had to force myself to bring in something, to give her place a little bit of a feeling of home. I could not bring my farm animals to an apartment in the city limits, but I did bring my PS4 and have try to get in some gaming as much as possible. Sometimes, that could be 5 minutes of gaming before getting called in, to do something for my girlfriend, who is in a wheelchair, and other times, I'm just having to constantly hit the 'pause' button, but it is what it is. Hopefully we can figure something out once the baby is born.

Anyway, I've been playing Ys Origin on the PS4 and actually just got to the last boss two days ago but really haven't had time to grind and give it a good effort, to beat it. It's definitely an awesome game, much like RPGs of the past.

Congrats! Having kids is great. I mainly only have time now for mobile games since I have a long commute now. Plenty of turn based games by kemco.

    I would say everyone is going the mobile route. Many games by the big makers are only on mobile devices. The opposite was true not long ago. At one time, they were only on consoles. That has changed radically. Also, Switch is making a comeback in the handheld and mobile markets. Sony and Microsoft dropped the ball big time by keeping their big machines.

Lots of classic games on mobile. I have an Android. I still remember Nokia N Gage trying the mobile market and failing. Btw, I checked my email again and keep getting these approve posts emails. Do you handle that now guys? Not sure if we need to even approve posts anymore, probably just new members in case of spammers.
