Me in ‘Murica

Look at me experiencing new things in reality. From July 3rd-8th I had the pleasure of visiting The Great American State of New Jersey on a first time leaving Canada vacation adventure (TM)!

Not gonna lie, those now long passed few days in the USA were some of the best days of my life. Getting away from my boring routine in lil ol’ Nova Scotia and seeing people in reality did wonders for my depressed old soul. The biggest highlight of the entire trip was meeting two of my closest blogger buddies offline for the fist time: Athena of AmbiGaming and The Shameful Narcissist. I can now confirm that these two are total badasses in reality! Definitely give their online blogs a follow.

Wow, though. The whole trip is something I never want to forget, and my terrible memory is already shedding details like crazy. I’ve decided to do one of those fancy travel blog thingys and here it is:

I picked up my copy of this game on launch day, but it almost took a year for me to get around to finishing all my goals for the game. I was once a huge Assassin’s Creed fan but fell out of the series after I beat Unity (hopefully I’ll catch up someday). In Rogue, being on the Templar side of the fight gave me a new perspective on their organization, which was neat. Before playing through this game I always felt that the Templars were unquestionably the “bad” guys. After getting to know Shay and his new friends, both sides seem to be operating in a grey area on the morality scale. Now I’ll let past me do her review rambling. Enjoy!
