What I’ve Been Playing: Rome 2 Total War

I've been playing Total War series games since Rome Total War first came out back in 2004 and I fell in love, as did many others. It was a revolutionary game by being the first attempt to make such a strategy game on such a massive scale. Over the years the Total War series has expanded and entered many different eras from the Medieval era to the Napoleonic era. Every good franchise though needs to return to its roots so Creative Assembly came out with Rome 2 Total War; I was stoked and wanted to play...

My Gripe With College

I can't believe I'm actually writing something negative about college only three days into my second attempt at college but, I guess there's odder things to believe. This is going to sound like just another lazy college student moaning and groaning to some but, to others I hope to understand what I'm getting at. So I started this semester off this past Tuesday with a total of five classes: Writing Comp. 101, Algebra 035, Public Speaking, Intro to Visual Art and Art History, and Intro to Mass Media...

A Sad Month In The NBA

Part of me cried a little today. Today marks the retirement of Tracy McGrady, this month marked the retirement of Allen Iverson as well. Goodbye Tracy McGrady. Goodbye Allen Iverson Allen Iverson aka "The Answer", a former first round pick for the Philadelphia 76ers, lived up to his high draft pick.

What I’ve Been Playing: Payday 2

I've been waiting for this game for quite a long time and two days into playing, I am in love. Payday 2 is a team based game where you are a squad of criminals who embark on various missions. Doing so, you receive cash which can be used to buy new weapons, new masks, and can be also used to customize all your gear. What I love: -The first Payday was also team based but just wasn't very good at it. The HUD was too limited, the missions could be done without a team, the classes showed no major...

My Year In Review

Every time my birthday  rolls around it seems like it was just yesterday I was a year younger; time really does seem to fly. Though going from 18 to 19, it seemed like a lifetime. It's amazing that a year ago I was enjoying my summer with my girlfriend of three years. My memory is a little foggy but I'm pretty sure I spent the afternoon with her, as was the norm with me and her. We exchanged gifts, considering our anniversary landed on the same day; I got her a key necklace with a heart as it's...

I Could Care Less

If teenagers are amazing at one thing, it's for us to just not seem to care or at least to put up a facade that we could care less. If you were to look at my Facebook news feed on the normal day you'll read constant statuses about people ranting on about how they "don't care anymore about so and so" or how they wish they just didn't care about anyone, these of course are followed by some stupid hash tags. It's an understandable phase we all seem to go through, as people seem to go through so many...
