Far Cry Primal….or Mesolithic Fallout 4
I never went anywhere near the Far Cry games. I have no idea what they are about, but there are guns involved.
Then I saw someone playing Far Cry Primal.
Ummm…open world set in 10,000 B.C.? Hmmm……crafting system? Errrr…. You can level your guy and there is a sort of skill tree? Ahhhh….you can tame animals to kill for you? So an unkillable pet that you choose?
Yeah. This looks like Fallout 4 but with cavemen, wooly mammoths and such. How did I not pay attention to this before now?

Alright more pics from my Vancouver vacation.
This is from our morning at Capilano Park.
It is know for a giant suspension bridge and treetop walks.
We start off with totem poles. I'm a big fan and would love a couple in the back yard.
Then you get to the bridge. It is only a few hundred feet to the ground below. No big right?
I hate suspension bridges. They move and sway and I'm not having it.

The first not Harry Potter/ Harry Potter spin-off film based on a book has been seen by me and mine.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
Set in 1926 New York, we are introduced to the American wizarding world through the character Newt Scamander. It seems he is travelling the world studying beasts (fantasy monsters) and writing a book about them. He is also on mission, that they want you to think has a shady vibe about it, to return a beasty to its home. This all seems pretty benign. Well now throw in an invisible monster destroying bits of New York and the investigation by the Magical Congress of the United States American (a.k.a. the Ministry of Magic), a group of anti-witch propaganda pushers, a newspaper magnate and his son running for office, a wizard version of Hatari, not Voldemort on the loose, a paltry romance story, American Muggle interaction (or Mo-Maj’s a word I hate the sound of) and you have the basic plot of Fantastic Beasts.
As I sit here typing this, I am still at odds with this movie. I didn’t hate it, but I hated parts of it. I didn’t love it, but I loved parts of it.

Who thought this pic was
1. ever a good idea
I guess it was made to show an appreciation for a blunderbuss, to make one hungry and to titillate at the same time?
Whatever the reason it is Thanksgiving. Be thankful for whatever and do the family feasting or whatever it is you and yours chooses to do.

It is hard to believe that a simple week long celebration culminated in a night of vicious attacks and terror.
The final night of the Harvest Festival in Stonekeep was anything but family friendly.
The night began with the Remembrance of the Fallen ceremonies at the local graveyard. It was here that some unknown party struck first. A simple ceremony and candlelight vigil turned into a battle against the risen dead. The city guard held the cemetery gates and our intrepid party ventured in to battle the various skeleton and zombies that were walking about attacking the civilian bystanders.
