Coming Back To Apex Legends

So….. Have you ever tried a new game for the first time, then walked away and forgot about it for a while?

well that happened to me, and my relationship with Apex Legends. The first time I heard about Apex Legends was on IGN Daily Fix during my commute to work. I was very excited and intrigued at the same time. Normally, I gravitate towards RPGs, Third-Person Shooters, Visual Novels, and games with a compelling storyline. I thought to myself; “If I am comfortable constantly playing Overwatch, then I will definitely will be comfortable with Apex Legends.”

The first day of the release of Apex Legends, it took some time to get the strategy of the game; aiming, gun shooting, special abilities, etc. I also learned that Apex Legends is a three on three community battle royale. But, sometimes teammates have that “every person for themselves” kind of mentality and just go solo; which is okay. Some people just like to play by their own rules, or just used to battle royale shooters like PUBG or Fortnite.

Confession: I am not the best Apex Legends player. I am that kind of player who wonders around collecting supplies and guns, and continues to run around aimlessly in hopes to get that one shot. Although I do try to stay with the group, as I stated before “every person for themselves.” Then my confidence in Apex Legends worsen, when I started watching other twitch and YouTube streamers who have this game down to a science. flawlessly getting in shots, and becoming champions. I started to wish I was good just like them.

With submitting to defeat after a week of playing Apex Legends, I decided to uninstall the game from my PS4, and just stick to my comfort zone games. Let the pros have their shine.

I uninstalled Apex Legends 5 months ago.

Today 7/3/2019, I reinstalled Apex Legends on my PS4, just to try and give it another chance. Plus, I want to try and unlock as many characters as I can, especially Wattson. To be completely honest, I actually like this game. Scrub away all my insecurities about comparing myself to the pros; I am actually having fun. Still no kills, but at least my teammates are better and I can work with them. I just need to remember to have fun and not buckle down so much under pressure. It will get better.

I also need to remember that it takes time and practice to find my groove in Apex Legends. Just like real life, it takes time and motivation to get better….. one step at a time :)

My Top Picks of E3 2019 Exciting Games

My Top Picks of E3 2019 Exciting Games

This week I have managed to find some time after my day job to catch up on the excitement of E3 2019. Based on the trailers that I have seen, I am very excited for these upcoming games. Although I do have a backlog of games stored on my PS4, I am going to make it my 2019 mission to complete the old ones before moving on to the new games. No worries! I am still going to livestream and record my progress with you.

Cyberpunk 2077

Keanu Reeves is having the best moment right now; John Wick 3, Always Be My Maybe, and now…… The headliner of Cyberpunk 2077 coming on April 16, 2020.

Cyberpunk 2077 is an open world RPG where the player must fight and survive through the dark world of Night City. Junkies and thugs of Night City are addicted to a new illegal drug….. a new form of getting that quick high: The Braindance. The braindance is a form of chip that records someone else’s life; lifestyle, emotions, experiences, etc. You are LITERALLY walking in someone else’s shoes. The story moves based on your choices.

Gone Home

Gone Home

Gone Home has become one of my favorite short story based video games. I have played Gone Home a few times, and I love it each time. It does become challenging each time, because I enjoy the exploration aspect more than just rushing through the story. The first time I have ever played this game, I immediately thought it was going to be a horror/suspense game based on the picture. After my first gameplay, I realized that Gone Home is about following your heart, growing up, and discovering yourself through new experiences.

SUMMARY: Kaitlin comes home from Europe, to discover her parents and sister Samantha is nowhere to be found. While exploring and trying to find answers of her family’s whereabouts, Kaitlin starts to pick up clues about Sam and her relationship with Lonnie through a series of journal entries.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Gone Home is truly a heartfelt story. Gone Home shows that it is okay to develop same-sex relationships, learn about yourself, and discover that you are never alone. A story that I believe we all need right now. It is a short game; took me 2 hours to complete. You can complete Gone Home in less than half a day. The story is immersive, the music is beautiful, and you will immediately start to connect with the characters. I highly recommend Gone Home to everyone.
