I think i have already played all of those! Good list though. And most of them are pretty essential games anyway.

Just watched the Rec Room video. 700gs look really, really easy. 10 minutes tops.

I hate the idea of burning through ten games without taking the time to enjoy them properly, just to get points worth less than £10. It’s all a bit Black Mirror.

I would never do it with a game i had any intention of playing (certainly not to burn through them at least), but if it insires me to get on with games that have been in my backlog for too long, or to spend 10-15 minutes on a game i never would have played then it think its ok.

Your point is valid though - min maxing all this stuff actually becomes the game, the value of the reward is almost of no consequence. I think its just that i will part with reward points much more readily then my real money (which i need for other stuff, like food). Having a nice steady supply of points means i can justify more game purchases by using reward points (at least to subsidise the cost).

What this does not take in to account of course is the most important resource of all - time.

Oh yeah, it’s not entirely bad. I’ll probably move Batman: The Enemy Within further up my playlist as a result.

Did the Rec Room challenge and the Surviving Mars one today. Really quick and easy.
In the 5 seconds I could hear online chat in RR I heard more ultra racist language than I think I have ever heard in my life though. Guess it’s the week for it....

Sounds like updates/fixes will be smaller and quicker at some point in the future -
