Still from Ruiner: Cyborg man with "kill you" repeatedly displayed on a digital mask

Recent Consumption

Recent media consumption to kick off 2021:

1. Ruiner

An isometric shooter from 2017 with a cyberpunk theme and an absolutely banging industrial soundtrack. Considering a recent high-profile cyberpunk-themed game released from another Polish developer, you might think I accidentally bought the wrong game, but the truth is I’ve been meaning to grab this game for a while and certainly have some time while that bigger fish works out its kinks and I wait for any 4k-under-1k GPU to become actually obtainable.

I was initially thinking to grab this on Xbone, as it has the look of a game that would feel better on a console, but for whatever reason ending up buying it on PC. I’m certainly glad I did, as it’s much easier to play with a keyboard and mouse (aim with mouse, move with keyboard) versus the controller I initially tried. I might just be bad at this stuff now, I don’t know.

2. Competing streaming service year-end comedy specials

Netflix has Death to 2020, Amazon has Yearly Departed. They both made me laugh.

3. One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

I thought I hadn’t seen it in order or maybe just not in a while but actually I think I somehow completely missed this film until recently. It’s good, you don’t need me to tell you.

That’s all I got for now!
