Out of the Blue

Wow! The Matrix Resurrections is actually almost upon us. I know there are mixed feelings about the remainder of the trilogy living up to the first movie, but I'm still very into seeing where things go from here (maybe there IS a spoon!). So it was another pleasant surprise when I saw that this will be a day one release on HBO Max. The Matrix is infinitely rewatchable, but it's been a good while since I've seen it. So now I can make a project out of re-experiencing the trilogy in advance of the sequel.

He did, but in the comments, Flying Penguin said "I'll watch it this week", which confused me as well.

Yeah, I looked up the date when Blue mentioned it, and I think I misread it as 11/22.

I listened to the Dune soundtrack before watching the movie, and I hated it. However, in the context of the movie I thought it was brilliant. Here's a good breakdown of how/why it works so well.

I crave unknown, surprising, stunning games.

Now totally enjoying another lovely hidden gem, to me at least :
** 3000th Duel **

Imagine a baroque cross between Unepic (classic 2D massive dungeon game) and Dark Souls, with beautiful 3D hero, foes and locations.
Full map and progress hints in the Community Hub.

As usual my interest is exploring and not the combat.
Absolutely hard, specially with the free "The Wise Ones" DLC, so I wouldn't finish this without my treasured Cheat Engine, *cheat spoilers* :
Infinite jump: when you get the double jump, find it exactly like in my "Feudal Alloy" recent post (4 bytes, 2 when on ground, 1 after 1st jump, 0 after 2nd jump while in the air).
HP, MP, and Stamina values are shown in the Inventory, and and all are Float.
Freeze them, with Stamina frozen, when you get Dash, you can chain infinite horizontal flights in the air, in both directions, never falling as long as you keep hitting regularly the Dash key.

Karma = Experience / Money, and all inventory items are 4 Bytes.
Though Seal Breaker Stones was float ? Don't remember now.

*End cheat spoilers*

Trinity, yes. We can assume that Neo, having been planned by the Matrix, was likely a program implanted in a human, in the same way that Agent Smith occupied a human, so I can buy that.
