    Damn. Sports games are cheap as hell if you're not waiting for the new ones.

    NBA 2K 19 is $2.99!

    Isn't that version riddled with absolutely ridiculous microtransactions, though?

    "For $5.99 you can buy a classic ABA basketball to play with in a game !" lol. (Ok that is me joking around but wouldn't be shocked given its EA).

    Aren't they all at this point?

    I'm not saying it's ok, but just don't spend any money. It's not like they're keeping current players or teams behind a paywall.

    I elected just to take advantage of the discount on PlayStation Plus. I could have gotten Uncharted Lost Legacy but to be honest I have more than enough games to be catching up with.

    Okay, I looked into it a bit and 2K18 was worse, with haircuts having to be purchased with real money. 2K19 is apparently a bit less egregious, but apparently the grind is heavier than before.

    Picked up Doom, Divinity Original Sin 2, Diablo 3, and NBA 2K19. Haven't played video game basketball before but for $2.99 I decided what the hell. May not get to any of them for a while though I only just last week finally got around to playing Witcher 3 for the first time and I can tell its going to take a while.

    I have whichever one Spike Lee worked on. I forget the exact one. It was PS+ free game. Not a fan of basketball as a spectator, so the out-of-date stuff doesn't bother me.

    I did pick up NHL 19 for I think $7.99. So, I finally have the Golden Knights. (Yay . . . I guess.)
