Finding The Perfect Multiplayer Match

When I started playing Black Ops 4, I already had hundreds of hours of competitive multiplayer experience with Destiny 2. Playing another shooter would be an easier adjustment than someone who had never played these types of games before. When I joined my first multiplayer, I was surprised to see that I was matched with people who have reached the max level within the game. It didn’t seem fair, I had none of the weapons that other players had, but somehow I was supposed to hold my own against them. To my surprise, it wasn’t a complete slaughter.

Red Dead 2 – The End Of The Road

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a long ass game. The game is so long that the epilogue feels like a separate campaign.

What I didn’t expect was how I would feel about it.

My First Experience With Black Ops 4

A moment of honesty – I think the most time I’ve spent playing any Call of Duty is about ten minutes. I never felt I was the target market, I really wasn’t bro enough to play the game. And I didn’t have the urge to be called ‘nigger,’ ‘nigga,’ or any variation by some stranger while playing. So I let the game run its course without me ever joining along. That changed over the weekend when I purchased Black Ops 4 on Black Friday. I wanted another shooter outside of Destiny, and I wanted something I could play on Xbox. So what was it like playing the latest Call of Duty?

Nike SNKRS – Games and Pitfalls

I’ve written about the SNKRS app on more than one occasion. It’s Nike’s platform for selling sneakers in a digital age. And while many of us have issues with the app’s performance and how the company deals with bots, I’ve grown to love the apps secrets.
