    Video games (when I have the time, which is less and less), nature, music, film. Not a big TV watcher because most of it's shit, but I do love Vince Gilligan's stuff, Mike Judge's stuff, MST3K, and a handful of wilderness survival shows.

  1. 2nd time seeing both. Watched them back-to-back. The Abyss was okay, but it wasn't nearly as good as I remember it being. 30 minutes longer than it needed to be. So many scenes go on way, way too long, keeping it from anything resembling good pacing. Fight Club is near-perfection. A masterpiece.
  2. That is definitely a good point that I should have mentioned. Both Crypto-currency mining & the pandemic really has changed things. PS - It's not just PC components. I'd be curious to know how many people paid way above MSRP for their PS5's.
  3. You don't need a $2000 gaming rig to enjoy PC gaming. High-end PC's are for rich people, people who live beyond their means, and professional Youtubers that get sent everything for free. The majority of us PC gamers play on low to mid-range systems. 85% of Steam users play at 1080p or below. I've been gaming on my everyday HTPC quite a bit lately for convenience. Bought a used office desktop with a good i5 processor, and threw a GTX 1650 into it. It cost me around $320 total and it will play 98% of my games just fine at 1080p. Some games do require a little tweaking, but that's better than not being able to play them at all.
  4. A song from 1972 with both Joe Pesci and Frank Vincent. I probably don't need to remind anyone who Joe is. Frank Vincent was an actor who played Phil Leotardo on The Sopranos, and was also in a bunch of Martin Scorsese films over the years. Frank is on drums, and Joe is on guitar. They could really play. FUN FACT: Joe Pesci always wanted to be a musician more than an actor, even to this day. In the 1960's, he was in a band called Joey Dee and the Starliters. They had a popular song called "Peppermint Twist." Pesci would eventually leave the band to start a solo career, and his replacement would be Jimi Hendrix. Yes, that Jimi Hendrix.
  5. One of the best covers ever:
  6. If it's new, then that's a pretty great deal. Please just be 1000% certain that you won't miss that Switch. In my youth, I got rid of a lot of systems and games, and I've come to regret it quite a bit. I didn't even question it; I was certain. I'm slowly replacing most of it, but it's not cheap. MCC is awesome. Very buggy when it came out (even the single player campaigns on 2 of the games), but I had a lot of fun with it. Halo 2 Anniversary is amazing, and I even liked Halo 4 quite a bit. Halo 5 is honestly pretty terrible compared to the rest. If you want to play it, I would recommend you do it for as cheap as possible. Good luck with your decision, and have fun.
  7. If you're 100% certain that you won't miss your Switch, then I'd say yeah, go for it. Like Darling Baphomet said, it would be nice to have for both Gamepass & future Bethesda games. BTW, will the Series S be pre-owned? If so, I would demand that you are able to get a good look at it before you carry it out of the store. I'm curious, will the Series S be just to play Halo Infinite, or are you planning on getting the Master Chief Collection as well?
  8. Cool news. Beat the game back in the day and loved it, and I actually finally did 100% completion just a few days ago. It's up there with Bioshock 2's Minerva's Den as my favorite expansion. I would rather have a sequel though, which Blood Dragon even set up perfectly. Not sure why that hasn't happened yet, as it would surely make money. BTW, it looks like there's going to be an animated series on Netflix:
  9. Both of these games are GREAT. Not available on consoles, but they are the exact opposite of demanding, so you can run them on almost any PC. Give 'em a try if you haven't already.
  10. Oh, most definitely. I have and enjoy a 360, and around 2010 the exclusives (the ONLY thing it had going for it) started to die, and it's been downhill ever since. Phil Spencer is the king of broken promises, and I take everything they say with a grain of salt. Having said that, I just think it's really neat that you can buy a 9th generation Xbox and pop in BLACK or Bloodrayne 2 and have fun. To me, that's a huge advantage, and like I said above, really the only advantage Xbox has.
  11. TBH, I thought the PS4 launch lineup was weak too, but at least the games were new and somewhat appealing to me in the beggining. Nothing in the PS5's launch lineup is appealing to me. Miles Morales looks like it could have been a $25 expansion to the first game, and OG Demon's Souls came out almost 12 years ago. I love both Bluepoint and Japan Studio, but a remake of a niche title isn't going to sell me on the system. Astro's Playroom looks great, and I know a lot of people adore it, but again it's not enough to sell me on the system. Expansions w/ nicer visuals, remakes, and great tech demos aren't enough for me. Having said all that, Returnal does look amazing. If and when I ever get a PS5, it will be the first game I pick up.
  12. At this moment in time, neither. Xbox is sort of pointless anymore as the games can be had on PC for cheaper (in most cases much, much cheaper), and the PS5's launch lineup is ridiculously poor compared to every single Playstation before it. Then you have the fact that the majority of the upcoming PS5 "exclusives" are also going to be on PS4. It blows my mind that people are still putting themselves through hell trying to obtain one. In 2 or 3 years, PS5 will definitely be a much more attractive console and the clear winner of the two, especially if Sony produces more titles like the most recent Ratchet and Clank that actually take advantage of the hardware. But yeah, right now both consoles are pretty lame. I will give Microsoft points on one thing; they genuinely seem to care about backwards compatability. I hoped for the longest time that the PS5 would be able to play PS2 discs, only to then find out that the CEO doesn't understand why people would want to play old games. What a joke. That guy is killing everything that made Playstation unique & attractive.
