The PUBG snow map dropped this week. After a bunch of squad and some solo, I've played the map all of once.

Still, Dino Park is kind of a must-drop even if there wasn't much loot. Got my first frying pan kill there so it will always have a place in my heart.
Far Cry 5

J and me are mixing a little Far Cry into the predominantly-Divinity gaming. It's more or less what you'd expect, an iteration on the story-driven open world formula with some notable improvements.

We last visited the Nepal-ish country of Kyrat where an eccentric semi-villain was... errr something about revenge and whatnot. Anyway, this one takes place in rural Montana and the baddies are a religious/separatist cult following an iconic villain called The Father.

The game really has fun with the Montana thing.

Settlement liberation is a series mainstay. Scoping out an enemy-occupied territory and deciding how to liberate it with stealth or explosions is good fun. Naturally, the liberated settlements unlock the area and provide places to shop and such.

Weapons are the standard fare. Semis, autos, sniper rifles, explosives. The currency system works pretty well - it doesn't take hours of gameplay to unlock the awesome armaments, but you certainly can't buy them all straightaway.

The standard array of vehicles is available to roam the Montana cuts. While FC4 had only an ultralight for air transportation, this one has helicopters and prop planes. There are also custom vehicles with mounted turrets and rocket pods.

Of course there's plenty of poignant, dark, and sophomoric humor. I chuckled when the intro video showed a phone video taken vertically. The "save the testicle festival" sidequest had us in stitches, even if there's some gruesomeness to it.

Photomode is very much like Horizon, I guess it's a PS4 API or maybe Ubi.

I managed to charm my way into another team's teambuilding. I guess Del Mar picked up an LA horse race series.

I had it on good authority that a 144hz monitor would significantly improve my gaming ability. Of course it hasn't, but things look better. Also three monitors is a must for simultaneous coding, internetting, and watching football.

Other than that, big waves and rainy rides juxtaposed with dumplings and gameboy by the fire.

Looking back/forward

A year after going tankless it was time to flush the heat exchanger. At Ted's recommendation, Pops originally installed it with isolation valves, so hooking it up to a pump would be a wrench-free affair.
