It did pick up a lot of stuff the alcohol left behind. However, I think Lolo and Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers might have to depart for that great console in the sky. The former has scratches all over the contacts and even the masking layer and the latter had noticeable corrosion that I only mostly got out. Three other titles cleaned up really nicely though.

Can't treat them with flux and hit them with the soldering iron? Sometimes that brings them back.

Awesome!

I found the Halo MCC on Steam sale for 60% off, never played Halo before, so now I'm going to give it a shot.

Still on Fate Grand Order; this game is not easy on Beginners since I am on the Third Singularity and still have yet to get a single 5 Star Character

I am playing Free Fire and it is a very exciting game, much more than Fortnite. Every update of free fire brings improvements and surprises for the players. Free Fire has quite a large amount of players. The game is very popular, especially in countries like India.

Fired up Star Trek Online for the first time in 8 years. Discovered that Steam (or the people running STO) didn't want to cut out the middle man with the launcher/patcher. Mildly annoying, but hey, at least I can finally play again. ;D It's been too long, honestly.

Cargo techs guard the station and find more stuff to take

Kinda miss playing STO.  But its advanced so far now, I can't figure out what to do, let alone navigate the new Starbases.   Plus the land missions really turned me off.

Only adjacent to video games, but I have a downstairs HTPC where I use Kodi as the primary interface to launch media as well as Steam, GoG games via a tool called Playnite, and several Windows UWP streaming service apps. I have been *struggling* to get XB1 controller bindings to work and I just solved a bunch of problems, Huzzah!

AMA.

OK, I installed GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition and... I cant seem to find the folder to add custom music files. Does anybody know how to add custom music?

I don't think it has it.  The "definitive" edition cut out a lot of content and options.

On an unrelated note, one of my friends is getting into video games for the first time now that he's living with his brother and his brother's kids.  He was looking for recommendations for mecha games that are available on PC and Xbox One besides Mechwarrior 5.  Any good ones, especially for someone who doesn't have much experience with video games?

I think Daemon X Machina is on PC now.  The story is a trip.
This reminds me, I should go looking for more mecha games.

Possibly weird opinion: I do not like chibi mecha.  I just... don't.  And I cannot adequately explain why.

The DLC is worth it: adds Estel, Shiva (SOR4 version), Max (SOR4 version) and Roo (via cheat code).  Also adds new alternate moves for every character that can be unlocked by playing the Mr X Nightmare scenario, which is really addictive.

I feel you on s.d but I will admit I enjoyed SD Crossrays,the mechs didnt seem deformed and you can create custom pilots.
Clan Ghost Bear:  We may not like you, but you're not bothering us, so you may exist.
 If your BA tactics can't be described as shenanigans, you're probably doing it wrong. ^-^ -Weirdo
 <Kojak> Yeah, there's definitely a learning curve with BA, But once you learn how to use 'em well they're addictive,heck, just look at what happened to Foxx ;-)

What? This is ridiculous. I think I'm just gonna uninstall and get a refund then. I might as well just play the old version since I still have the CDs.

I definitely recommend getting a refund.  There was a huge backlash against Rockstar after the release last year.

It's not straight up SD Gundam level, no, but those robots be chibi.
Also it was one of those games with like three or four different editions and if memory serves some day one DLC, so I wouldn't buy it anyway.
