    Hey guys, first time commenter here, been listening for a couple years now and have been loving the show. Last week Nick said he’s been itching to play a survival game after Death Stranding. Survival games are some of my favorites, and the cream of the crop in the genre (to me) is The Long Dark. It was made by a small Canadian studio and has been consistently updated for years to the point that it looks and plays almost like a completely different game than it did at release.
    There is a (somewhat) recently added story mode, but the survival mode that the game was built around is one of the best and most immersive experiences I’ve ever played.
    Stranded in the North Canadian wilderness, you face a variety of realistic threats to your well being like hunger, thirst, exposure, and wildlife. The game features permadeath and the only “map” you get is one that you sketch yourself using charcoal from burnt out fires as you explore the vast interconnected regions.
    It’s available for Xbox, PlayStation, and PC, you should check it out and be sure to spoil as little details as possible about the world layout and mechanics. Dying over and over while you get the hang of things is an experience that you will miss down the road, it’s a game I wish I could erase from my memory so I could relive the experience of not knowing what is around the next corner.

    Very excited to hear Nick is looking to view a movie he hasn't seen every week. Been doing the same for a few months (mainly bad and/or weird movies for the How Did This Get Made podcast) and I've had a blast doing it. If you want some recommendations, Nick, these are just five:

    Stalker - A Soviet film based off the book, Roadside Picnic (which the game S.T.A.L.K.E.R. is based off of including the film as well), about three men's journey into the The Zone, within which a mythical room resides where wishes are said to be granted.

    Crumb - A documentary about the underground comic artist Robert Crumb, whose subject matter ranges from the hyper sexual to the obscene to blatantly sexist and racist imagery.

    Fitzcarraldo - A film about a rubber baron that dreams of building an opera house in the heart of the Peruvian jungle, but to realize this dream, he concocts a plan to pull his steamship over a mountain (a feat both attempted in the movie and behind the scenes) to gain access to a portion of the forest with untouched rubber trees.

    Zardoz - A strange film, starring Sean Connery, that includes men wearing stone masks and red speedos, hideaways full of immortal psychics, and a huge, flying stone head that spews out firearms and ammunition from its mouth.

    Overnight - A documentary about the flash-in-the-pan career of Troy Duffy, writer-director of the Boondock Saints, a man whose egotistical and belligerent nature lead him to burn all his bridges in Hollywood, and even the living scum ocean known as Harvey Weinstein fits into this narrative.

    Nick I know you don't like Revenge of the Sith but it's much better paced when compared to Rise of Skywalker. Seriously it feels like episode 9 goes at 100 mph without giving you a chance to breath. Does anyone else agree with this sentiment?

    Weighing in on a few patron questions- which video game island would I want to be trapped in? The answer is always New Zack Island. Also I would leave my child with Kiryu Kazuma.
