You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
I downloaded it, if anyone wants to play tonight shoot me a line over Discord or Steam
Ctrl+F "The African Queen" no results.
Come on guys step up your classics game.
Casablanca, as already mentioned is an amazing choice it was my grandfather's favourite movie of all time and one of mine too.
The Big Sleep is based off my favourite novel by Raymond Chandler (Probably my favourite novel period) and is an absolutely stellar performance by the whole cast.
Following the Noir kick, The Maltese Falcon
The Harder they Fall
I'm just going to throw it out there because the list is extensive, any movie starring Humphrey Bogart, Jimmy Stewart or Lauren Bacall are GOAT. I don't believe Humphrey Bogart ever had a bad film.
As for more recent films that I consider essential
Dredd 3D (Ignore the Stallone version from 95)
No Country for Old Men
Hell or High Water
Also no one mentioned this and I'm sad
I purchased Prey on release and beat it a couple days ago on Hard. That game is incredible, people are saying it's a spiritual successor to Half-Life 2 and Bioshock and that's accurate though I'd go further back and say it's a successor to the original System Shock games. (Which Bioshock claimed to be though I'd argue Prey 2017 does it better)
The mechanics of the game are pretty solid insofar as weapons and the upgrade system, I've yet to try the "Typhon" abilities advertised (My first playthrough was almost wholly a pure human run) but they sound really neat from the descriptions and from what I gather of the game's core enemies the Typhon.
Enemy variety is decent enough though there isn't much too differentiate them visually. On the audio side of things it's pretty stellar as far as combat, soundtrack and the environment goes but there are some issues as far as the character voices go. Not to say they're poorly done, far from it but if I had the option to hear everything over audio logs as opposed to in person I'd choose that in a heartbeat because the in person voices sound like they're speaking from far away, possibly through a fan. Whatever it is the in person voices feel distant and almost electronically distorted and it weirds me out.
Altogether I'd give it an 8/10, 8.5-9 if not for the typical Bethesda bugs (Some which were just fairly frequent CTDs and others that were potentially game breaking)
I've started playing Nioh and I'm still big into World of Warships but the only people who play that are my brother and father.
My bro and I recently started a grand coop campaign in Total War Warhammer and we've modded it to a difficulty we enjoy so there's that.
Been thinking about replaying/finishing Witcher 3 as I have the full game on PC but last time I played I stopped in Skellige after almost 100 hours so who knows.
