How is gaming in the time of social distancing going for 2old2players?

Together we’re playing Irony Curtain: From Matyroshka with Love which has many timely jokes about not being able to buy toilet paper.

Disaster Report 4 Plus: Summer Memories
Release Date: April 7, 2020
Platforms: PS4, Switch, PC

Final Fantasy VII Remake
Release Date: April 10, 2020

I can’t wait to watch the movie quality version of Sephiroth casting SuperNova! Also I’m wicked sad I couldn’t find a side by side photo of Barret. I’ll have to make one when we pick this up!
