Out of the Blue

The past few years I've grown a November mustache for Movember. Noting that some choose to go with a full "no shave November," I thought that seemed like an even easier way to support men's health. But I was failing to remember how a couple of weeks into such a process one's face begins to itch terribly. I could solve this problem by shaving down to the mustache, but that feels cheap, so I'll just try to tough it out. It's an odd exercise during a pandemic. We still don't go out much, and I wear a mask when I do, so I could be wearing a Groucho Marx greasepaint mustache and nobody would know anyway.

Hairy Round-up
Thanks Ant and Neutronbeam.

Why hasn't anyone made a first person shooter out of Downton Abbey yet? Missed opportunity.

Prometheus and Alien: Covenant absolutely fucking sucked.
I can't agree more. Premetheus was so bad I can't understand why people liked that film.

The scripts were awful, the characters unlikable and I still don't understand the Alien's evolution of the species. If someone can point me to a concise explanation of that I'd be interested to see it.
On a Technical level there are some lovely shots and even some scary horror moments. But I agree that the 2 movies were overall terrible.

I always felt that Ridley ruined the mystique and appeal of the Engineers by devoting an entire movie about them. Moreso when it was revealed that instead of being an otherworldly alien-type of being based on the remnants of the Space Jockey in Alien, we find out that it was just a space suit and that underneath it all, they're just giant, boring, translucent, bald humans. Ugh.

Such a big, fat, giant waste of an awesome and creepy design from H.R. Giger.

Ridley needs to figure out in his old age that revisiting, explaining and fucking around with things that worked for fans is a surefire way to piss them off. George Lucas already learnt that lesson with the Prequels before he said, "fuck it all" and sold everything to Disney. He knew that what he envisioned for his franchise didn't coalesce with what fans want. Ridley needs to learn this.

Prometheus was so disappointing I didn't even see Covenant.
I was hoping it would just be a single prequel film that at least hinted at the xenomorph origin.
It doesn't even do that well.

Found a hidden gem, and why it is so:
Feudal Alloy, 80% off.
https://store.steampowered.com/app/699670/Feudal_Alloy/

An incredibly elaborated action platformer, pile upon pile of convolution.
Started it to pass the time, and got enthusiastically obsessed.
Has only a 67% score, because it's hard as nails, unfairly so.
But if only to see something different and creative for a time it's worthy.
There is a .png map in the Community Hub with all items to possibly find.

Of course, you can do away with the difficulty with cheat engine.
Maybe among the silent visitors someone find this interesting (*spoilers, select to see*) :
Heating mechanic (stamina), Float, 0 to 10 max, although later it grows with upgrades.
Freeze it with value 0.

Idem with the Life bar, Float, 10 full to 0, death. Freeze it with value 10 or more when upgraded.

Gold, items, ability point: all 4 bytes, exact.

Above all, even so, it has its hard platformer moments:
Added infinite stacked jumps, basically fly around.

When you get the double jump in the game: 4 bytes, value 2 when still, 1 after first jump, 0 after second jump, before he touches the ground.
Once found freeze the value in 2, and jump anywhere.
Of course you can also find it before, with only having the simple jump, but takes much more patience searching just 1 and 0, too many results.

End spoilers.

Ridley scott has some pretty good films and you can't win them all..

but I really hate what he did with the alien movies. Prometheus and Alien: Covenant absolutely fucking sucked. That's what hollywood does i guess... they just beat things to death.
