Ah Rush, the band.
One of the greatest bands of all time.
Fronted by a bona-fide musical genius.

What I did not expect was for this administration to fundamentally attack the US Constitution the way it has.  I am genuinely becoming worried that I am watching the beginnings of the Constitution being broken down.

I would say "we are" but then I remind myself that the Constitution is a sturdy ol' lass and the US has been through some pretty trying times over the last 2.5 centuries and generally comes out okay in the end.

It's definitely more Far Cry, if that's what you're asking.

But better. Okay, the story is the usual FC drivel. But the gameplay and gunplay are fantastic.

Also, you can have a Grizzly Bear companion. Named Cheeseburger. Who has a skill called "Bear Arms" which he uses to "exercise his right to attack."  There's also the faithful dog, Boomer, who is revived from a downed state by giving him belly rubs.

Personally, I'm traveling with a mountain lion named Peaches who prefers the same sneaky murderkilling approach I do, which works out well.

Also, turkeys are savage. :o

Far Cry 5 is a great deal of fun.

It's also borderline freaking photorealistic, if you ask me.

And it's beautifully optimized. I'm running it at 2560x1440, maxed out, and getting an unwavering 60fps. Reports from across the board are that it runs very well for a range of hardware.

So many levels of wtf here.

And as someone who has jury-rigged the shit out of cars in the past, I find this amazing. :D

Primal is my favorite Far Cry. It takes itself more seriously than the others. And it's just a shitload of fun. Taming/collecting animals is a hoot, and something about riding a saber-toothed tiger or cave bear into battle against other cavemen is delightful. I played the hell out of it and still have it installed to go back to here and there.

The prevailing opinion among my Steam circle is that FC4 is weaker overall than FC3, but generally just "more of the same"... so if you liked 3, you'll probably have fun with 4.

On that note, I have Far Cry 5 preloaded and am anxiously awaiting my chance to shoot some cult members this week. :D

I have not seen the movie. I'm extremely disappointed in the casting. Like, the only thing Alicia Vikander has in common with Lara Croft is brown hair and an English accent. She's a freaking waif, not an athletic tomb raider. /rant

It's a "watch it when it comes to Netflix streaming" movie for me.

The new game, on the other hand, is an easy preorder for me. I've been stoked since info about it started leaking.

McCabe fired 2 days before retirement. Fuck Trump.

But it sounds like McCabe isn't going to go down quietly.
Here's a statement he released. Well worth reading.

I'm kinda interested in Vermintide 2, but will wait for a better sale. 25% off isn't enough to tempt me yet...

Yep. It really does just look fantastic.

I am wearing out my screenshot key.

I haven't. Though I'm playing a 5e campaign right now, I actively avoid homebrew (besides my own)...

I binged the hell out of this. Season 1 in about 3 evenings, and then Season 2 in one sitting...

Such good, so wow.
