    The Martian - Trailer

    I listened to the audiobook a month(?) ago and saw the movie today. Very much enjoyed the movie although wish I hadn't read the book before as it 1) obviously spoiled the movie 2) I was constantly comparing the movie to the book while watching it. I loved the opening scene with the Alien tribute (title and music). Solid 3.5 / 5.0 Book spoilers / comparison & whine ahead

    The Walking Dead

    Just watched the Season 6 opener. Didn't blow my mind but wasn't complete bullshit either. I'm hoping the story is going to start progressing faster this season (it seems to be) and they get rid of the filler episodes where they just roam around the countryside encountering random zombies while killing off semi-important cast, oh wait that's the whole show. Anyways, I hope this season won't disappoint.

    I lost interest for 4 years, after that I realized being creative and creating shit is the only thing keeping me from going bonkers.

    What have you watched recently?

    Agreed, also probably has the best & most satisfying ending in any movie I've seen.

    Lightman and Nightman

    Today I released the first version of an Android platformer game I've been working on for roughly 3 weeks now. It's the first Unity project I've released and essentially a way for me to teach myself the tools. I came up with the design and the gameplay mechanics back in 2009 but never actually had the time to make the game. Planning on adding atleast 10 levels a week to the game, currently it's a fairly quick play with only 32 levels.

    Been working with Unity for a couple of months now and it's fantastic. Before, I had this weird and negative attitude towards game engines and UE/Unity type tools. Thoughts like "Using a tool like that is cheating, writing my own game engines is the true way of game development". This spring I finally got it. 1. I'm not in the game engine development business, I'm in the game development business. 2. I'm one dude, Unity has whole teams purely dedicated to developing tools. 3. They're handing out UE and Unity for free. Also I put a bigger project on hold and am currently making a platformer game for the past week for Android, mainly as a way to teach myself more Unity. It has a free advertisement based business model, not really expecting a lot of income from it. Made a semi funny credits level for it today, here's a video:

    True Detective - TV Show

    First episode was a pleasant surprise, it had a nice way to introduce all the main characters.

    --> Low Budget Sci-Fi "GEMS" !!! <--

    Was very impressed with this one. Has some Judge Dredd and Deus Ex influences.

    Kung Fury

    I had seen the kickstarter materials and that music video by David Hasselhoff so that kind of ruined it for me. Got a strong "I've already seen this movie" feeling in my head while watching it. I think people who have not heard anything about this movie will enjoy it the most.

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    Saw it today. 5/5. Lived up to the hype imo. I loved this shot

    Avengers: Age of Ultron Enjoyed it, a lot of action. First scene and the last scene were probably the best ones. This frame/pose gave me nerd chills
