When I've had time, I've been playing Half-Life: Alyx and Doom Eternal.

Mind I think I'm one of the few people atm who seems to prefer Doom (2016) to Doom Eternal...
There are aspects of Doom Eternal that I think are an improvement, but the ridiculous zerging of enemies, low ammo (with a timer-based ability to regain it from kills) and almost non-stop action.
Just feels more "empty" and "mindless" to me.

I've invested over 500 hours into Super Smash Bros Ultimate and I'm still enjoying the hell out of it.

I play it competitively at a high level, so I go to lots of local tournaments and meetups.

I bought Doom on steam, have yet to actually play it. I still play the Diablo seasons. I reach the accomplishments needed to increase my stash tabs then fade away.

This may be considered blasphemy, but just 2 weeks ago I beat Ocarina of Time for the first time, even managed a 100% run, 3ds version. Now, I've decided for a little challenge and started playing through the entire Might and Magic series, starting with book 1. About 15 hours in so far, so much grid paper used...

If we're including board games... I've been running a Fallout Wasteland campaign for a few weeks now.
My brother had planned for me to come across the Brotherhood of Steel, at least before this stupid Flu Hysteria; but no where is bloody open or shipping (within a reasonable timeframe).

Keep joking with him, that if the current nonsense keeps up; we might end up using bottlecaps for currency :p

Flu? What flu? There's a coronavirus pandemic in full swing at the moment, which has already caused over 100,000 deaths. Have you been living under a rock?

Coronavirus' are a variant of Influenza... and it HAS NOT caused over 100,000 Deaths.
It has been present (i.e. people who have died, were infected with COVID-19., the current strain that the Media and Governments are currently scare mongering over) , but that doesn't mean that said individuals have been dying either because or due to said infection.

Something to keep in mind is that like most Coronavirus., COVID-19 has a lengthy gestation period and is typically asymptomatic in most people until it is mutated by other factors.
This is why those with pre-existing conditions (such-as Seniors or those with poor Health) are going to be most at risk.
Still, with that said... just because an individual is infected doesn't mean that the strain had actually gestated and mutated to become active; thus becoming said cause.

While some Countries are doing proper tests and have realistic figures for associated Deaths., the vast majority (especially in Europe and North America; where mass hysteria is taking place) are simply wrong.
And Medical Professionals across most Nations (UK, Germany, France, Canada, etc.) are all saying the same thing; that while our Healthcare Systems are not CORRECTLY collecting Data in order to correlate totals; the reality is that in a *worst case* we're talking about the actual Associated Deaths being up to 12% of what are actually being reported.

So, why are so many Deaths being Reported and Occurring?
Well... think about it for a second.

Typically you have no idea how many people die each week... because it isn't something the News will generally talk about.
These figures can appear to be incredibly high., but right now there is the added factor that our Social Healthcare Systems; which were already well BEYOND Capacity to cope with everyday Healthcare issues; are being placed under exceptionally greater pressure... meaning there are many who would ordinarily have survived whatever health complication / emergency the have, are simply not being reached in time; nor is there the resources to care for them longer-term as needed.
Couple that with Panic Purchasing of Over-the-Counter Medicine that could've prevent escalation of symptoms in the first place ... as well as a few weeks where everyone was venturing out (and to Stores) more often out of fear of a lack of goods; which ironically caused a shortage of goods temporarily that then fed said fears of running out.

Are you starting to get the picture now?
The issue at play isn't the Flu itself... it's the Mass Hysteria that has been caused, which is somewhat self perpetuating; as it causes further issues that feeds into it.
And as the Coronavirus is essentially the current "Boogieman", it means anyone who dies with it is being classed as being killed by it.

A lot of this Hysteria stems back to Royal College London., and a study from a Statistics Research Team; who claimed that COVID-19 would claim 500M World Wide; and it's something every News Agency and Government for some reason took seriously.
Which would be find if said Research Team had a long and prestigious history of being right about their predictions; but in fact the opposite is true... said team have been wrong in EVERY prediction they've ever made., likely because their Research isn't done with any particular aptitude or rigor; but instead is done with a political bias; as said research is oft used by specific political advocacy groups.
Think the one for this in particular was called "ACT NOW" or something like that.

Personally I believe that people should be Criminally Liable *if* by their actions they create Mass Hysteria... I mean it's no different to shouting "FIRE! FIRE!" in a crowded Cinema; when there isn't one; and that *IS* considered a Criminal Act.
The result of this research is literally causing the Media and Governments to Panic; who in-turn are causing the Public to Panic and creating said Mass Hysteria that is in turn resulting in preventable Death to occur.

Please bother to look things up before you spread dangerous misinformation. Influenza and coronavirus are distinct classes of viruses. Coronavirus may share some similar symptoms, but it is NOT flu. Influenza viruses belong to the Orthomyxoviridae family, while coronavirus viruses belong to Coronaviridae. You're the kind of person who tells others to not worry about self-isolating because "it's just a cold" (again, caused by a distinct class of viruses, just so you know).

https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/how-does-the-new-coronavirus-compare-with-the-flu

As for the rest of your waffle unbacked by sources, I'm more inclined to believe the WHO, CDC, and than the NHS than some random person on the internet that mistakenly believes two different classes of virus are the same because they share some of the same symptoms. I'm going to take this outbreak seriously, and take measures to protect myself and others.

Coronavirus is nothing new, you can see proof of that on the label of any lysol bottle. The currently mutated strain of it going around the world is what's new.

Quote: "and it HAS NOT caused over 100,000 Deaths."

It may or may not have caused the death, but that's how many folks have died who tested positive for the virus. I don't believe you're trying to negate the death toll of the virus. People with existing, underlying health issues made up 99% of corona related deaths in Italy. Now it's entirely plausible that many of those folks may have survived had they not contracted the complications related to the virus. But it's also just as plausible they could have had the virus and survived had they not already had other health issues as well. It can go either way.

Cases have been reported of people who overcame the virus only to become reinfected again later. (Information on this is scare at the moment, so how true it is I'm not sure)

Roughly 2 million cases have been reported, with 25% of those recovered and 6% have died. These figures are worldwide. And while the media has recently come out to say the US has the most cases and most deaths of any other country, the US has also performed 3x more tests than any other country. Statistically, it makes sense we'd have more confirmed cases since we tested way more people by far.

My data comes from various sources online, including WHO. I would also say these are estimates at best, as the figures I get from WHO and CDC so far have not matched.

Do I think the world has overreacted? Yes a little bit. But judging by how quickly this seemed to spread and the lack of a vaccine or existing antibodies to help fight it, corona has surpassed flu-related deaths and isolation may be the only way to minimize the spread.

I am currently playing The Long Dark. I am personally a great fan of this game because I like to play survival games because I think they are close to reality. After playing this game too much I came to practice different survival skills in this game. I want to share those survival points which I gathered from my personal experience.
*Navigation is the key in this game.
*Manage the resources.
*Set up Camp and be efficient.
*Prioritize tasks
These are some general tips I want to give from my experience. Other than this, I want to say be creative and enjoy this game because only the tough one survives.

Going to be a Red Dead Redemption weekend for me. 50% off on RDR2, so I bought the Ultimate Edition for the Standard Ed price. The 119Gig download is 60% done so far.
