Playstation 5 stream goes live in 15 minutes. We should be getting some news soon. Originally, I think they were targeting a Q4 2020 release, though we'll see if the current crisis impacts supply chains enough to jeopardize that timeline.

Any other recommendations?
New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe is fairly chill. For my wife and I, Overcooked is stressful.

I haven't played most of these, but I do remember really liking Monaco.

I got Styx: Shards of Darkness. So far, I'm enjoying it a lot. It's got the stealthiness and the play-style options that I loved from Dishonored... plus the irreverent humor that I loved from Overlord.

I've been playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons with my daughter on the Switch. It's amusing despite it being repetitive. I was so pumped to go to another island and bring home coconut trees.

Minecraft announced that a bunch of it's Educational stuff in the marketplace is now free to download. I grabbed a virtual tour of Washington DC, a giant model of a human eye, one on the ISS, and a few other games (build a city's power grid, logic games, etc)

...you know, for the kids.

I just grabbed Mount & Blade 2. I feel a little gross actually paying a whole $40 on a brand new game... but I was literally playing Mount & Blade 1 yesterday, so I'm sure I'll get my moneys worth. If I can find the time.

Also playing "streets of Rogue" lately, with my brother. But it's hard to explain to my 3 year old why I need to murder an entire city.

I hear you. Styx Shards of Darkness gives me extra skill points if I don't kill people. But I'm having far more fun killing EVERYONE at the moment.
