My brother and I used to watch Formula 1 in the mid to late 2000’s with likes of Michael Schumacher winding down his career, and the rise of Lewis Hamilton, Kimi Raikkonen, and Sebastien Vettel. One of the highlight seasons was 2009 and witnessing Brawn GP’s beautiful neon yellow accented white car destroy the competition. We drifted away from the sport since then. It was not until last Sunday when I finally watched a bit of F1. That was an eventful season opener in Austria. Brawn GP’s spirit lives on within Mercedes, but I miss that livery.

Catherine: Full Body on Switch is the latest option for me to finally check out what that game is all about. It caught my eye during the PlayStation 3 days, and then again when the Full Body version came out for the PlayStation 4. As a fan of Persona and Atlus, I was curious. I wasn’t going to spend over $20 on it though.

Did you know the Iron Man VR game was coming out on July 3rd? I don’t think it looks very good, but I await people’s impressions. There are plenty of VR games that are impressive with the headset, and uninspiring on a screen.

The Last of Us Part II is finally here but I will not be partaking until the PlayStation 5 arrives. I figured I will only benefit from waiting. It will either go on sale by that time and/or there will be PlayStation 5 enhancements. I risk the game being spoiled but considering the fact that I managed to dodge leaks for all this time, what’s another few months?

The Samurai Shodown Collection would be a dream collection for me if I was a huge fan of the 2D sword fighter. I respect the franchise and I played a bit of Samurai Shodown 2 on the SNES but that’s about it. Outside of selecting Haohmaru or Nakoruru in Capcom vs SNK 2, I haven’t touched any other Samurai Shodown content. I’m going to pick up the collection on the Epic Games Store though. Free is free and who knows, maybe I’ll get around to checking them all out.

The masters of minigame collections is back with Clubhouse Games: 51 Worldwide Classics. Nobody gets people as excited for a collection of games like Nintendo. Even I’m curious enough to consider purchasing this digitally for my Nintendo Switch. It could be fun during trips or short power outages? Who knows, maybe I’ll finally learn how to play Backgammon through this. I know I can just pick up and iPad app but that option is too easy and I want to spend money for that Nintendo polish.

I played Xenoblade Chronicles on the New Nintendo 3DS. It’s probably not the ideal way to play that game but I didn’t like it for technical reasons. I disliked it for being a slog. I disliked it for being repetitive and not developing the story or characters in interesting ways. Needless to say, this Definitive Edition release for the Nintendo Switch will not be making its way towards me.

Epic Games is giving away Grand Theft Auto V for free until May 20, 2020. It’s been a long time since I played GTAV on my PlayStation 4. I thoroughly enjoyed it there but now thanks to Epic Games, I can replay it one day at 60FPS. Considering how popular this game is, I wonder if it will make its way the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X via backwards compatibility or an official patch that will enable higher a resolution and/or framerate

I fell off the XCOM train. I loved XCOM: Enemy Unknown but didn’t get in on XCOM 2 due to its rocky launch and now I’m letting XCOM: Chimera Squad slide on by as Gears Tactics occupies that strategy spot in my heart. XCOM: Chimera Squad looks neat; I’m all for studios trying out new ideas for their franchises in these small spin offs. However, when I heard this was taking place after XCOM 2, I felt the need to play XCOM 2 first.
