Ender's Game


Recommended Posts

I don't believe we have a thread about this movie?


Anyway, I saw it last night and it blew away all my expectations. All I knew about it was that it was a sci-fi and Harrison Ford was on it, enough to make me want to watch it so I went in with media blackout.


Absolutely fucking awesome movie, I love all the little connections to video games and the roll they can have in the future, I love the environments (which really reminded me of Mass Effect, in a very good way) and the plot was really good as well with some surprises mixed in!


A lot of people that read the book say the movie is not as good, but isn't that always the case?

I was waiting for you to open this topic. As always, we Europeans have to wait. But Harrison Ford in a scifi is a nobrainer for me. I'm going to report back once I've seen it. I'm not gonna watch trailers or videos though. I want to be surprised.

Finally saw it. I liked it. It managed to captivate me from the start and I didn't see that ending coming. Lovely little flick. 


I especially love how humanity is portrayed. Vindictive and focused on winning regardless the costs. The entire movie had me rooting for this brilliant tactician kid, I was mind controlled into a "Kill em All" frenzy and suddenly woke up realizing I supported mass genocide on a planetary scale. The ending left a bad taste in my mouth. I love it when a movie manages to move me like that.

      Two new asset releases!

      First up is Basalt. Sadly I can't release all of the assets as some of the nature stuff is from Megascans and can't be redistributed. Also only includes the assets I've made.


      Second one is assets I've made for Pitstop. A small release that includes some road and concrete trim textures, a bunch of sponsors and some skybox buildings that might be useful.
