I'm playing through the Injustice 1 story. Interesting so far.

I had a few games to trade in and looked up on Sunday that their total value was about $90 at Gamestop. I also saw that RE7 was still $55 pre-owned.
Went to GameStop over lunch and looking on the app, saw RE7 was down to $33. Find out that GS is running promos like crazy and my $90 became $155. Guy tells me they're running But 2 Get 1 on pre-owned. I look around, thinking I could get Uncharted 4 and some thing, but meh. Get back in line. Guy right in front of me is trading in Crash Bandicoot trilogy (came out 3 days ago). I ask the cashier if I can claim dibs, and he says yes since I'm next in line. So, I get U4 for free.
Started the day thinking I would put $90 on my card for later. Ended up putting $95 on card and going home with RE7, Crash Trilogy and U4. Sounds good to me. Games spoiled below:
Spoiler:

Until Dawn (will get it for free on Ps+ tomorrow and got $14 for it)
Dark Souls 2 (got it for $16 December 2015, trades in for $16.50)
RAtchet & Clank
Diablo 3
Lego Force Awakens
Titanfall 2 (got for $20 in December, trade in for $15)

Started another colony builder: Oxygen Not Included. I'd suggest giving it a couple more months to develop, but it is a unique take on the Rimworld/DF genre.

Instead of pirates, it's all resource management. The gimmick is that you're underground, which makes for an almost closed system. You can only dig so far for Oxygen bubbles. You can dig for Algae to convert CO2, assuming you have enough CO2. But there's only so much algae, so eventually you need to start converting water into Oxygen. But there's only so much water...

Basically you're always trading short term plans (don't die) with middle term plans (improve comfort/automate systems so your people have more time to expand) with long term plans (sustainable solutions).

Nope. It's retroactive to when you started your game.

It's like Google. We've been tracking you from the start, but when we finally let you know, we introduce it as a "feature".

I've decided to give Overwatch a break. It's been my exclusive game for a year, even though I'm not particularly good at it.

Dusted off my Wii U last night and downloaded Xenoblade Chronicles. Looking forward to playing it tonight! Since I can play on the gamepad, my wife is looking forward to me actually being in the same room as her and hanging out, rather than tethered to the computer monitor.

if your nose is buried in a video game, does it really matter if you're in the same room as your wife or not?

I agree with you, but my wife is the same way She'd prefer I play my Switch or Vita on the couch than go downstairs to play something else.
