My Music Production and Mass Effect 3

Hey everyone!

I've basically been innactive ever since Skyrim came out (Which unfortunately didn't live up to my ridiculous expectations ;P)

The reason behind that has been because I've been practicing music production.

I released a full song just yesterday. I would love for you all to hear it!

Other than that, I just finished Mass Effect 3. Without spoiling anything, I wasn't upset by the ending at all even though I do think that it could have been more fleshed out. I can't say the game had a memorable impact on me like the first and second games did unfortunately.

I was slightly disappointed with the majority of side quests, as they were all mainly fetch this fetch that missions. I also really missed the feeling of exploring other planets the way ME1 allowed. It seems that by putting such a big focus on the combat, Bioware dropped the ball on exploration.

Either way, I'm excited to see what happens with any future DLC they release, and hopefully the story ties up a little better!


The Wait For Skyrim: 5 Days

It's been an incredibly long time since I've last blogged. I've basically dropped off the face of the planet in many ways. University has consumed my life, although I still spend a ton of time browsing the web and gaming. Not much into the party scene at all anymore. I guess as you get older, the desire to participate in those activities slows down.

Let me get sidetracked on another topic once again. The launch of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is only footsteps away. I say this because I've been waiting for over 3 years for this game to be released. While I dabbled with Morrowind, I've excessively played Oblivion, amounting to over 1000 hours of gameplay throughout 15 different characters. To this day, I still listen to the soundtrack from both games regularly, and literally track every single piece of content Bethesda Game Studios has to release.

My interest in the Elder Scrolls caused my fascination with Bethesda Game Studios, and how creative the team really is. They bring life into the idea of living and breathing in another world. It's amazed me for 6 years now, and I have hopes of eventually becoming a part of Bethesda Softworks to contribute to what isn't just interactive media, but rather an experience that won't be forgotten in a lifetime.

Now that Skyrim is only 5 days away, I wanted to share one of my favorite songs in Gaming. The song is from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, and it was created by Jeremy Soule. The song I'm referring to is called "The Road Most Traveled". Listening to this song brings out so many different feelings of craving adventure, mystery, exploration, and the desire of pushing forward through any obstacle.

I'll provide a link to the song, for any of you that have not heard it.

With these remaining 5 days, I'll try to avoid reading too much new information on the game. I want this to be a fresh experience just like the previous games have been for me. This upcoming weekend will be spent in Tamriel. That I can assure you.


Back From The Dead

It's been a really long time since I actually did anything with this account, even if it wasn't much. I miss the fun community that moved to GiantBomb, and I just left the site. It was in part because of school, gaming, and work. I also spent a little bit of time building a new PC earlier in the year. As time went one, I upgraded it constantly. I took a picture a week ago for you guys to see what it looks like as of now.

The only upgrades I've done since taking this picture is getting a bigger gaming mouse pad, and moving the mouse + keyboard onto the top of the desk. I do plan on upgrading the monitor to a 22" sometime soon, but it won't be first priority since my 19" is doing just fine. The only things not in the picture are my Fatal1ty gaming headset, Razer Deathadder mouse, or the Logitech G11 keyboard.

If you're interested in my specs, you should check my xfire page which I actually updated for situations like this.

A few weeks ago I got a bit addicted to WoW, for  I managed to hit level 30 in 8 days of play. The addiction didn't last for too long. Now I just play regularly. I need more people to play Team Fortress 2 with me, along with Left 4 Dead, since I haven't touched that in almost 5 months. Unfortunately I haven't been on my 360 or PS3 in the longest time, but I think that will change very soon. I have been playing a lot on my DSi lately. It was mostly because of my trip to Maryland, from which I came home today. I made the most progress in Phantom Hourglass, while dabbling a little in Ninja Gaiden Dragon Sword. Barely worth mentioning were my 2 hours of playing Mario Kart DS, even though it was time really well spent.

I'm quickly getting used to the site design, just because of how well done and innovative it really is. Kudos to GiantBomb! ^__^
