"Persona 5 Royal: Steelbook Edition"

I played the vanilla version back on the PS3 and in Japanese only, so it'll be interesting to hear the ENG dub this time around.

Space food, a solar system projector thing, some space-related posters and party food (well, what passes for such during lockdown).

Have decided that every Friday we are going to have a themed day for the kids to study and finish off with a party to celebrate being one week closer to lockdown lifting.

Need something to look forward to, after all.

The Command & Conquer: Remastered Collection the first game I have preordered in a VERY long time and one of the game franchises that ignited my passion for gaming and I cant wait for the nostalgia its going to bring.

Proper workbench for metal work, and files (as tools).

I'm also trying to find a filter mask somewhere, to prevent the metal dust getting into my lungs, but they're all sold out because of covid... which is a bit concerning, since that kind of masks don't give any protection in terms of a virus, they're for dust and nothing more. O_o
Well, I guess I'm gonna practice toolsmithing on our balcony with a fan and hope for the best.

3 copies of Streets of Rage 4. 2 for PS4, 1 for Switch. One ps4 copy is a gift for my older brother.

Tenchi Muyo OVA 1 & 2 (Blu Ray). The other OVAs suck and I don't care for them. If I need any more Tenchi, I will just stick with Universe.

A kitchen bin, a kettle and some pirate ship craft kits. Because Friday is party day and we're going to theme it around pirates.

Dude, just open it. Delivery people take precautions, too.

Anyway, I ordered FF7 Remake before it was sold out (again).

The person that dropped it off had no gloves on or mask on

He took it out of a van and left it at my door, I was watching him out the window

He didn't look like he sanitized his hands in the van either but I can't be sure

And as i have a 6 year old and a wife to consider, I left opening the projector til I was sure anything potentially on it would have died off

Anyway I need to grab a 100 inch canvas screen for it first before I can use it properly



Now onto what I bought today

I bought and renewed an xbox gamepass ultimate sub up until april 2024, got a year of psn and nintendo online

And I bought the birds of prey harley Quinn movie to watch over the weekend

Just grab a rubber glove, cut the envelope open, and throw it away. (Don't forget to cut the address out.) While you have the glove, open the game, product, whatever... and go about your day. You don't need to be suspicious of delivery people. They are at much risk as you are.

When COVID19 was getting bad, Doom Eternal was already ordered. I did not get suspicious of the person who delivered it. I just open it normally, and realized they sanitized the envelope. Which makes me feel confident.

Thing is, though, you can't always be paranoid.

Lately, those mail men/women are using masks/gloves, but I'm not gonna go postal on them. I was employed by the U.S. Postal Service, I know how it is there. They check everything. It's exhausting, but they check things. The employees are very particular, and very "nosy" because they don't know you.

With respect Carlos, my wife has bad asthma , my daughter has it too

And this is a pulmonary virus

So I'm taking absolutely no chances whatsoever

If that seems ott or paranoid , so be it

But I want to ensure my loved ones are at 0 per cent risk

Also this was a box not an envelope

And it was handled without gloves or a mask, so it was touched and breathed on

Anyway let's just move on lol
