UPDATE: Where have I been?

Hey, guys. It’s Mason.

It’s been a very long time, hasn’t it? Not a single upload for several months, and I’m truly sorry for that. Sorry for also leaving you guys on a rather negative (and outdated) review of Destiny 2. Which I’ve shockingly gotten myself back into, and don’t worry, that’ll be explained in a later post. Enough rambling though, onto the reason why I’ve been gone for so long, and that’s because I’ve simply hit a wall. I’ve reached a point in my life where I have absolutely no idea what to do with my life. I’m 19 years old working at a fast food joint. No car. No college. No planned future, and I can’t stop playing video games. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but it is getting in the way of my life somewhat.

My problem is that I have a very difficult time sticking to a schedule. I can’t seem to really budget my time at all. I make all this time for my friends online, but I never give any time for myself. This is something I seriously need to work. If I want this website to grow and to make it successful, I have to get myself on the right track first. So, moving forward, I’m gonna work on getting my life together. Learning how to drive, getting myself in shape, and seeking new and brighter horizons. I know I’ll get there, I just need to have patience and I need self-discipline.

As for blogging, they will start coming back again. Slowly but surely. Hopefully I’ll be getting back into the rhythm of posting regularly. There are so many things happening at the moment that I’d love to blog about. From the insanity of Fallout 76, to the Federal Trade Commission investigating Loot Boxes, and to the hype surrounding Obsidian’s new game, The Outer Worlds. So many topics to discuss, and I can not wait to get to them all. For those of you who have stayed with me through this … terribly long hiatus, thank you so much for your dedication. Means the world to me, and I promise you, I will work on getting better. To those of you who have just joined my blog, I apologize for the rusty introduction. Don’t it won’t always be like this. Promise.

Thanks again, everyone.

Livestreams Moving Forward

Livestreams Moving Forward

This is a little update on livestreams and how they will continue on this site. Starting from here on out, I will be doing livestreams every Tuesday and Thursday during the late evening. Usually they will be happening around 7PM EST or later. This will just depend on what’s happening at the time. Regardless, I’ll do what I can to keep you all in the loop. Even though we were entertaining an audience of six people, I still enjoyed at least making those six people smile. Even a little bit.

Now for my recordings. Since the livestreams I do only stay on my account for two weeks before being deleted, I’ve decided to move the streams over to my YouTube account, The EqualOpportunityGamer. You can find the link to my account on my blog’s main page just underneath the title. This is so people who haven’t seen the streams and want to get caught up can easily go view them. Also, you’re going to want to see how lucky we got with fighting Apollyon in For Honor. We got REAL lucky.

I want to thank you guys again for all your support. I appreciate all your help, no matter how big or small. Whether you’ve read my work or followed my page, you’ve helped me out in some way, and I couldn’t thank you enough. Because of all of you, you’ve inspired me to expand my creativity, and it’s al thanks to you. For Thursday, I plan on uploading a video regarding a little talk on Microsoft, Bungie, and EA. Just wanting to make conversation with you guys while I play some random games for a bit.

Looking forward to it. Stay tuned!

UPDATE: Two Guys, One Apollyon

UPDATE: Two Guys, One Apollyon

Just wanted to let you guys that Tuesday I will be doing a live stream with my friend on Mixer, and we’ll be attempting to fight Apollyon on Realistic. Might sound a little boring, but the thing is, I’m a complete and total noob with the game. I’ve played through the entirety of the campaign on Realistic with my friend, but we haven’t been able to beat Apollyon yet. We thought a funny live stream would be us just trying to defeat Apollyon and hearing my hilarious rages and reactions during the fight. Not gonna lie, this game can and will make me rage at times, but I’ll try and keep my cool. No promises.

Anyway, if any of you are at all interested in wanting to see two guys fight Apollyon for shits and giggles, tune into mixer.com/e_o_gamer and enjoy the stream. If by some insane chance we defeat Apollyon rather quick, we’ll probably switch over to Halo 5 and play some of the game’s multiplayer for awhile before we end the stream. Go ahead and tell your friends or anyone you to tune in on Tuesday at 7PM EST.

Stay tuned!
