  1. I had a random thought about movies

    Is there a term for when a director/writer inserts a monologue or dialog that has a distinct feeling of the director/writer just wanting to spout some of their personal philosophy at the audience? Might not be the best example but Tarantino seems very guilty of this, the feet conversation in Pulp Fiction and the tipping conversation in Reservoir Dogs come to mind. (Its possible I am just misinterpreting ham handed character building)
  2. Legion (FX series)

    Anyone watching Season 2? I am loving it so far, it seems like they got a bigger budget to make the show even weirder visually.
  3. Quitter's Club: Don't be afraid to quit the book

    I just quit Daemon the writer has no idea how to write female characters or dialog, it was really painful. Good thing I can't remember who recommended the book to me or they would get an ear full
  4. Missions that made you quit

    This came up on the most recent Crate & Crowbar. Has there been a mission in a game that was so hard, so fiddly, so stupid, so poorly written, so offensive etc. That you simply couldn't continue. Two games immediatly came to mind. Mad Max had a racing mission, before that 100% of the driving was out in the desert so you could drive like a crazy person swinging all over the place. Suddenly you are racing against a bunch of respawning cars in tight corridors full of traps. I found in insanely frustrating and since I was mostly done with the game I just abandoned it. Similarly Starlancer had a mission where you had to defend you spacecraft carrier from long range torpedo ships. There were too many shooting too quickly and your AI buddies we're useless. I failed over and over and over again. I am sure I will think of more games as I pull this over. How about y'all?
  5. Movie/TV recommendations

    I have watched a few episodes, I have gotten a little annoyed with the narrative of the show that a makeover and remodeling will create giant changes in these peoples lives, I really wonder how many are actually able to maintain the new habits they are shown.
  6. Far Cry 5

    Most of the articles I have read say it has done little to nothing to upgrade the gameplay systems, is it worth getting now to coop or should I wait for a sale/when I get bored of Surviving Mars?
  7. LucasArts adventure games on GOG and Steam

    No Sam & Max Hit The Road
  8. I watched the whole season, while overall its still the best of the Netflix Marvel shows, S2 is a definite step down from S1 in terms of plot, especially the side plots
  9. Best Third-Person Shooters

    Hitman 2016 and Blood Money are fantastic although they are more stealth than shooter. Just Cause 2 & 3 are absolutely bonkers but have probably the best systems for moving around an open world. Spec Ops: The Line is cover based but does a better job than most shooters of having an interesting story. Ghost Recon Wildlands has a terrible jingoistic story but I found sneaking around in the jungle and stealthily taking out outposts to be super enjoyable. I loved my time with Mercenaries 1 but I don't know how easy it is to play these days, Mercs 2 wasn't as good. Smashing buildings in Red Faction Guerilla is pretty fun Red Dead Redemption was far superior to any of the GTA games I've played in terms of shooting If you can tolerate the sense of humor Saints Row 3 & 4 can be a good time
  10. Its funny because I feel exactly the opposite, I found cities got really dull as soon as I set up the basic city. Where as in Surviving Mars I feel like I'm always on the edge of cascading failures and colony collapse which keeps me going.
  11. So far I am enjoying it aside from having no idea what I am doing, how to do anything efficiently (or correctly in general). I am finding it to be a lot more compelling than Cities: Skylines due to everything feeling a lot more critical, I had a water shortage that I was scrambling to deal with so as to not have my colonists die. In Cities I doubt I would have cared as much. The smaller scale probably helps a lot with that since having 1 of 12 colonists die feels a lot worse than hundreds of people out of tens of thousands (am I a monster?)
  12. Marvel movies

    Thats true, I did appreciate the lack of a random villain flip. I just meant that JJ s1 felt far more impactful and interesting, I liked s2 but it was not nearly as good as s1.
  13. Marvel movies

    I finished Jessica Jones season 2. Not nearly as good as S1, not that i'm super surprised, its just felt more like all the other Netflix Marvel shows than S1 did.
  14. Far Cry 5

    I am going to get Far Cry 5 because open world games with sniping are something I cannot resist. I am not sold on the DLC, I get annoyed with DLC that is totally separate from the base game and though I enjoyed Blood Dragon well enough the FC4 Yeti DLC was uninspired. I am especially wary of that Vietnam one, I fear it will be the classic Ra Ra USA portrayal. We were super duper the bad guys in South East Asia and they way it calls out facing vietcong made me cringe.
