What Video Games I'm Playing This Week

Video Game Backlog Infinity At this point I have a backlog of games that I'll never finish but might as well still try.  This week I plan to punch away at the following 2 games and hopefully post up a review or two by the weekend: Diablo II: Resurrected on the Nintendo Switch Diablo II: Resurrected  This isn't my first time playing Diablo II but it is the first time playing this updated version.
