Well, the switch version of Sonic appears to be pretty much identical to the PC version so there's that. And of course I can play it on the bus or train... Can't do that with a PS4. Nor with a Wii-U...

I have a 2015 MBP, and that does me nicely. Well, when I need to use a mac, that is. Coding for MacOS is a right PITA and I much prefer Windows. I avoid the mac where I can get away with it.
