    I have no idea about Azure. Does he not have a girlfriend now? I assume he does far more interesting things like going to sleep late and having the sex all the time.

    Yeah. They are getting their freak on. From the window to the wall.

    So collapse.

    I finally decided to look up what FOMO means...struggle to keep up with the kids lingo, YOLO you know.

    I also noted games coming up for sale within a day or two of release usually with a “its not for me” tag, but I would almost put it down to habitual purchasing, especially if people have free cash.

    Personally I can only think of 1 purchase I made, which was F1 2016 after a tweet on XBox Playdates last year. Still bought it on special though and I also waited for specials before getting F1 2017 even though I knew I was missing out. Since I try to collect, most games I buy isnt always for playing. I try and focus on carboot sale price purchases rather than premium which has served me well.

    One advantage of bargain bin buys is often launch issues are sorted out, and GOTY versions abound.

    So basically you don’t want anyone to touch them.

    You can touch them. As long as you take precautions

    If i wasn't connected to this forum and the social sites i probably would never have bought a few games on day1. I have stopped doing this now as I've realised that in the end, it will come to me. One way or another. Thats no Myth.

    Also the fact that i hardly or ever even play is another story. I suck at playing games, but love collecting them. That being said, if i could sell them all today i would.

    Sometimes I tend to behave more like a Nobby Nobbs, depending on the situation.

    He's splitting his time between studying, having the sex and ignoring my messages relating to eisbein.

    I don't really have FOMO but my Xbox X was a bit of a FOMO buy, I however don't regret it at all.
