Played a small amount of The Quarry this weekend. Anyone who has played one of the earlier titles (Man of Medan, Little Hope, etc.) knows what to expect. This one has a Friday the 13th style setup, and while I am not far in enough to know what exactly is going on, I do know that Lance Henriksen appears to be a crazy man who has covered himself in blood and is roving around the woods.

Anyway, one of the characters was watching some security monitors, and suddenly Henriksen appears in the monitor and smashes the camera. The character says "It's probably nothing." and walks off! I have to believe this ridiculous dialog is an homage as opposed to just bad writing. I hope.

Did a reset on my PC to try and combat a minor freezing problem, which didn't end up working. Oh well. Now my PC desktop is very spartan, a handful of icons and two games: Payday 2 and Bigfoot. I'm still the Brother of Mercy in PD2, helping noobs play the game and survive. In one heist we were playing, the new player said he was trying to unlock a particular achievement (NOT TODAY: Kill a kicking Cloaker with the GL40). He said that the best time to kill the Cloaker was at the end of the heist where's there a lot of terrain that would for the unit to jump over, thereby giving him a chance to unlock the achievement. I told him that we'll hang out at the end and give him a chance to unlock it, as I didn't have anything to do.

That was easier said than done, we cook the meth, and escape in our getaway vehicle.... Which promptly crashes and we have to wait for evac. I joked to the other guy and said, "Watch, the street gang's gonna betray us on the next day." Boom.... They betrayed us, they didn't even pull Machiavellian crap like waiting for us to go the apartment before ambushing us. We walked up to the truck and they instantly pulled out their guns. Much shooting later, we then arrived at the overpass to finish the last part of the heist.

We had another player join us then and after I explained what was going on, he agreed to help. Now comes the painful part. I was running bots on my crew. the only remaining bot on the crew was Bonnie, and she was armed with a .50 sniper rifle. I hope you're beginning to see the problem.

Every SINGLE time the new guy was setting the Cloaker up to be thumped, the inevitable would happen. BANG! Cloaker dropped and the bot triumphantly saying they killed the Cloaker. I kept yelling at the bot to follow me and I kept trying to put her in a position where she wouldn't snipe the guy's kills but nothing worked. Eventually, the guy said to pack it in and we agreed.


I finally fixed the mouse pointer problem in Bigfoot on my own, and then set about hunting the homicidal furry. The game was nice to me and I successfully found the code for the gun safe in the firetower and got the automatic rifle. I then proceeded to cheese the big guy off by laying traps around the area baited with meat, and the idiot would go to it and then get hurt. When he would make his way to the tower, I set up a propane tank near a corner where he would come around. He turns the corner, BLAM, he's on fire. While he's dazed, I lit him up with the rifle. Then when he approached me, I escaped by jumping on the nearby zip line and land a good distance away. When he approached again, I'd pop him with the flare gun and daze him. Wash rinse repeat.

Eventually that trick stopped working as he can destroy the zip line posts. So, I had to move my griefer ass to ANOTHER zip line and start anew. And, of course, it worked like a charm. I only had to do it once or twice. Now, when the monster takes too much damage in an encounter, he'll try to flee. He was already hurting because I kept emptying the shotgun into him. When he turned to run, I aimed at his head and fired. I FINALLY got to see the scene of that asshat falling to his knees and slumping to the ground. Best feeling in the world.

If you like Resident Evil and you have Game Pass, you should check out Signalis. It is basically a PS1-era graphics sci-fi RE.

I'm enjoying it quite a bit.

Played some Warhammer 40,000 Darktide, which is a co-op shooter from the makers of Vermintide. I did not care for Vermintide, but Darktide is a lot of fun. Partly because of my liking 40k much more than the fantasy version.

My main complaint so far is that missions are generally about 30 minutes long, and they would be better served by being 20 minutes long.
