I’m probably becoming a little bored with FFXV again, even Anseling. After a while I feel like everything screenshot-wise starts to look the same or something. Would help if I played more story sections perhaps, or used more NPC mods, but constant swapping of save files, mods, and cheatengine tables becomes annoying. I’ve already taken a lot of story screens anyway, but they were posted in the old Imgur folders instead of this blog (linked to in the page headers up top).
Catching up with films/TV and running through Amazon finally looking for bluray’s of fave films. When VHS was a thing I bought tons of those (still have most in storage boxes) and bought a fair number of DVD collections, but I’ve bought very few bluray’s since I now typically stream vs. physical media. Noticed 4k blurays are cheapish these days, perhaps it’s time for a 4k bluray player. Or wait 8-10 more years for 8k. You know it’s coming. A few “8k” tv’s already exist, but there’s no actual 8k content so what’s the point, yet. But an 8k, 75+ inch TV + 8k versions of Aliens or Terminator 2 or Lord of the Rings or some animes … I might never leave the recliner. Or go to a theater again, ever. Not that I go to theaters much at all, already. We’re getting close to buying a new main/living room TV – it’ll be at least a 65-incher this time. That’ll be fun to occasionally game on (might inspire me to buy the new gen. Playstation). Lately I want bigger and bigger screens. I’m seriously considering chucking the 43″ 4k TV that sits *on* my desk and mounting a giant 4k TV on the wall behind my desk for PC use, instead. Super-size me.
I’ve been spending a lot of time on YouTube lately, watching film reviewers, “people reacting to something” videos, and linguist/accent analysis videos. Also, plenty of entertainment stuff like SNL skits and talk show snippets. I came across a short interview with Adam Driver on Stephen Colbert’s show (Adam is a cutie btw) and in the middle of it all of a sudden …
I laughed hysterically almost immediately, because you know what it instantly brought to mind? This:
Did I do this before? I’m sure someone has done it before. I like the angle better than the one they give you in the actual title screen. He has a tiny almost-smile.
I tried to Ansel the other version of title screen, with Ardyn and his girlfriend, whats-her-name. But their legs/clothing are really awkward looking while lying under the tree when you try to pull out the view. There’s a reason they only show their shoulders/faces I guess. Pfft.
I cropped out the background from one of those garuda effect shots for greenscreen use. More muted neutral tones and again, it’s nice to have something that’s less “flat” vs. a solid color. Why oh why didn’t Nvidia let us have more than 2 at a time….
I’ve also gone back to no glasses Ignis for a bit. I like glasses-on and glasses-off just about equally.
…I forgot Gladio. >.> I need to get more for a Gladio-pic-spam post. Gotta keep it … marginally … fair … :p
