As a launch title for the PlayStation 5 it doesn't get much better than a follow-up to one of the best superhero games of all time.
Marvel's Spider-Man Miles Morales Review
Is it game enough to fill the Gerudo Valley-sized gap in our collective souls? Can it quench the unquenchable heart that lies still, awaiting the return of Link in Breath of the Wild 2?
Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity Review - A Link to the Past
Perhaps the best in the franchise yet, and it wasn't even lead by either of the A or B teams...

This is my eLeaving post. There are many like it but this one is mine. If you're super tricksy sneaky Hobbitses you'll probably be able to find even cringier (no s***!) eLeaving posts of mine around here. I'm almost certain I've come and gone at least once. This forum is ancient, stone-faced and hoary. There is lingering wisdom and folly alike on these dusty shelves.

As you should know by now, I have Multiple Sclerosis. I've had it for a long time. In trog's Winding up QGL post, he made reference to a donation made on my behalf to the MS Society of Queensland. Thank you guys. I'm actually all misty again thinking about that, but mistiness isn't that hard to cause today. Still counts.

Over the years my condition has deteriorated. Its f***ed right now. Heaps f***ed. Its getting harder for me to be articulate without writing formal essays. I don't get around that much now, although (un?) luckily the rot is evenly spread across my mind and body so I'm a stick user rather than a wheelie man. There is no luck here though, only gradual creeping numbness. Its gentle, at least. Unfortunately I have developed some RUOK problems lately so its time for me to retire from the online life pretty much. If you know where to look though, you'll find me :)

My wife -- the famous chef! -- begins to morph into my power of attorney (enduring and otherwise) this week, a situation that will likely become legal early next year. Its time to say goodbye guys, its been f***en hyuge. I miss Mav and I didn't erven get to meet him :(

SO ANYWAY I meant to sign off forever with my simple 'GG' post in that Winding up QGL thread but here we are. I got sucked into the Political Thread a couple times on the way out and I need to make it stick this time. I don't have a lot of energy these days and don't want to 'waste' it arguing with you f***wits! Speaking of segues I want to slip in an apology here somewhere. We'll make it quick like a bandaid; I've always prided myself on playing the game with a close eye to not making personal attacks and instead focus on the substance of the argument. Technically that's an apology I think.

Sorry again if this doesn't make a lot of sense, I think it looks straight now.

Probably sound.

I'm sorry to hear you are getting worse, and I hope it works out as well as it can.

I apologize if I got up your nose.

Really sorry to hear it Hoggy and you will be greatly missed around these parts. It has been great having you as part of the community for such a long time. Best of luck and hope you can enjoy some quality gaming fun with great people (or failing that, some Dota).

I only popped back here recently, but it'll be a shame not to see your posts mate. All the best.

Epic mate. Sad to not only see you go, but hear about this forever transition in your life. Thanks for all the posts and support over the years. Can't say much more than you'll be missed, but not forgotten.

I wish only good things for you.
