I haven't even used any mods or anything. I've just been dicking around for the most part. Still, I have to say that 1st person platforming is awkward as fuck. Climbing those radio towers is not the most fun experience. And I don't like how a lot of the enemies in the southern parts of the map are pretty much immune to anything but headshots and takedowns. And some of the optics on the weapons obscure the screen too much, so the sight ends up blocking the target I'm trying to aim for.
All that aside, though, holy crap has the time flown by.
I just want to make a thread remarking on the... well, remarkableness of the Matthew McConaughey renaissance.
Since making his last shit film in 2009 (Ghosts of Girlfriends Past), here's what McConaughey has appeared in.
All of those films are brilliant at best (Mud, Bernie) or ambitious failures at worst (Killer Joe, Paperboy). And he hasn't done the usual "revived actor" cliche by sticking to one style/director. He's worked with Soderbergh, Lee Daniels, Richard Linklater, and Jeff Nichols. All very brilliant but very different directors. All in very different roles.
In my mind, Matthew McConaughey is living proof that despite all of the commercialization, bastardization, and vanity of Hollywood, acting is still a game of passion. McConaughey himself, on numerous occasions has said that starting a family gave him new inspiration to finally start acting because he loved to act, rather than because it was a paycheck (boy, what problems he must face!). He has morphed from a punchline into one of my favorite actors.
And it's not over. He appears in Scorsese's new movie, "The Wolf of Wall Street," which is supposed to come out on Christmas (yes it stars DiCaprio). Add yet another prestigious director to the McConaughey collection. After that, he's a central character (perhaps the central protagonist?) of Christopher Nolan's next movie, "Interstellar." Aaaaaddd yet another prestigious director.
I never thought I'd say this, but Matthew McConaughey represents everything I love about the movie industry.
