I just got a PS Vita and Persona 4 Golden so I expect I will be enjoying that for the weekend.

I'm going to try and run through both of the FF XV demos this weekend.  I tinkered with the first one (Episode Duscae) when it first came out, but never finished it.  I've heard they patched in a bunch of the new combat tweaks, and that it's lots better now.  Looking forward to the new demo as well. 

I'm sure I'll run some FF XIV dungeons, along with a few Grim Dawn areas.  May give Fallout 4 another look, although I was hugely unimpressed with the couple hours I spent with it last weekend.  I also picked up Starpoint Gemini 2 + DLC (was $8 on Steam yesterday), so I'll have to dig out the x52 and see if I can't get it up and running again.

Gratch, I don't think Starpoint Gemini 2 is something you need a joystick for.  It plays more like a 3D version of Starfleet Command.

Never played Starfleet Command, but SG2 looked like something that would be perfect for a HOTAS setup.  I even stumbled across a very detailed article on how to set one up properly.  Maybe it's better to stick with keyboard/mouse though?

Some The Division and Dying Light.  Stardew Valley hasn't captured me yet but maybe I'll try more.

Give the HOTAS a try first Gratch. Curious to see how it plays with that. Probably helps with immersion if nothing else

I played about 16 hours of Starpoint Gemini 2 and, unlike Elite: Dangerous, it seemed perfectly optimized for mouse and keyboard.  Combat is centered on managing shield facings and firing arcs rather than lining up precise shots, and the interface is really well laid out for whatever extra tactical options you might have available. If give it a shot as-is and then decide if a more elaborate control scheme is worth the effort.

I enjoy playing SG2 on the xbox one. Not sure that a joystick would add anything more for myself, but, could be fun.

I've been dabbling in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate and Divinity:Original Sin , but neither one has really grabbed me and made me want to finish it. So in a desperate attempt to reignite some gaming passion, I fired up Fallout 4 last night. I basically just got through character creation and the intro so it's still too early to tell whether this will be the game that gets me going again, but so far so good.

I also plan on checking out the new FFXV demo.

Thanks all for the input.  I think I'll start keyboard/mouse, then see if it's worth adding complexity once (well, if...let's be honest here) I get the hang of it.

I was mostly just looking for an excuse to use my x52, since its been gathering dust since I stopped playing Elite.  smile

Um, maybe more Far Cry: Primal, The Division, Trackmania Turbo, and who knows what else.

Got my second job (Dragoon) to 60 in FF XIV, which is the equivalent of max leveling a second toon in most MMOs.  So that was kinda cool.

Making good progress in Grim Dawn as well, about halfway through Act 3 (according to this quest list)

Finished off Astebreed on PS4, which was a pretty fun SHUMP.  It was short (about 2 hours), but had an appropriate level of bullet hell-yness.  If nothing else, it was nice to finally put another game on my completed list for the year.

Ran through all of the new FFXV demo and most of the first one as well.  While I don't completely have a handle on all the combat systems yet, I've seen enough to know that I'll like it.  I know...it's pretty shocking that I'd like a FF game.  smile

Think I'm going to hold off on Starpoint Gemini 2 until I wrap up Grim Dawn.  Also, I finally gave up and deleted Black Desert Online.  It's far too much work for far too little fun.
