Xbox One X is it Worth a Buy?

xbox chip

Xbox One X has just been announced (Code name “Project Scorpio”). Is it really worth $499 dollars?

Hmm…. Let me think about it…..

At the moment the Xbox One X is NOT worth a buy in my opinion. Better graphics at 4k resolution is not worth it right now if you don’t have enough money to throw away like its raining money. But but but…. Did I say but?  The power is there! And it can play huge games with massive open worlds in gorgeous 4k graphics and that there….. is worth a buy! But…. wait. There aren’t even enough games worthwhile right now to use such power :(.  Perhaps next year when they announce Halo six and other titles that harness this power will it be so desirable. It’s just, the Xbox One X has not been out long enough for developers to be cooking up new titles to release on it to make us shed a tear of what we’d been missing this whole time. I’d say wait a year from now. It’s too early to buy it right now. But if I could get it for the price of Xbox One S at $250, then heck yes!

 

 

 

 

 

Being Off Work for a Month and Time

timejob

I have been off work for a while. A month in fact. Time goes by so much slower compared to when I worked. A month jobless feels like forever because I have so much more time. A month when I had a job felt like it would go by in a blink of the eye, very fast. I think when you have something to actually do, time goes fast. I  began programming in the past few days, and time would actually fly by as fast as when I had a job. This is just how things work I guess. But do I miss a job? Heck no haha.

Nintendo Switch Review (March 6th)

nintendo wheel

Let me get the obvious out the way first, the Nintendo Switch is a great console when it comes to portability from handheld to console as its flawless and easy. The UI is very responsive and fast, going back to the home menu is like a snap of the fingers.

As for the library of games at launch, it’s disappointing, only about five games to play. So if you don’t like Zelda, then there isn’t much for you to enjoy until at least April when indie games hit the market and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe comes out. Some of the indie games next month will be implementing HD RUMBLE which will be exciting.

Do I enjoy the Nintendo Switch? Only because of Zelda I do, otherwise I wouldn’t like it that much because there isn’t much software to enjoy. I’m not going to buy 1 – 2 switch, so I will have to wait to feel the new tech in the joycons. I spent $540 which is a lot of money and even with the new Zelda game it doesn’t feel justifiable, yet (I haven’t beat the game to see how good it is, only 8 hours in). However, I think at the end of the year, the switch will be amazing because lots of software and future releases to look forward too that we’ve never seen before.

Online? There isn’t much, its bare bones right now with nothing fancy, very simplified with only adding friends and thats basically it. No online games really, except for Bomberman which uses this functionality.

The pro controller is okay, I’m not too crazy about it. I prefer the joycons attached to the base remote that comes with the Switch. It seems that my thumb has to reach too far to reach the right toggle stick which leads to finger exhaustion in me after a while. I didn’t get 1-2 switch because I heard and saw reviews that the game was a waste of money for the amount of content. But I think ARMS will really show the magic of the joycons in which I have yet to feel (Because Zelda doesn’t include HD Rumble.)

Verdict? Probably wait, if you wan’t to make the smartest choice. If you like Zelda, then why not? Only a few more months until we get lots more content :). Might as well enjoy that  Zelda on that Switch.

How a Week Off Work Affected Me!

I recently got a week off work and this is what happened to me.

  • I became way more focused and consistent in my daily activities. And I didn’t multi-task as much and look at social media sites that often.
  • I became immersed in videogames again, studying, and doing whatever I wanted to do because I had a lot of energy, motivation, and time.
  • I felt way better, happier, and my quality of life rose.
  • The only bad thing that happened was that I started to feel lazy, but that was easily negotiated by running to the store. (Only good thing about minimum wage work is that exercise.)

Yeah I could use many more weeks off 🙂

What I Have Been Up Too.

I haven’t been very active lately because I’m finishing my book. After that I will be blogging more. This should take a week or so until I’m done. Have a great day everyone.

Working On Other Peoples Dreams But Not On Our Dreams!

How come people can work a nine to five job for others, but can’t work a nine to five job for themselves, to accomplish their dreams? People are told by their managers to do something they might not like all the time. But when it comes to telling themselves to do something, it becomes impossible! “I’m too lazy”, “I don’t feel like it”, “I’ll do it tomorrow”, “I got this game to watch”. People do the same thing over and over again, each and every day, and are clueless and lazy to what is happening. They are being controlled by their feelings and lack discipline to control themselves. Me? I’m still struggling to work for myself. It’s not easy, or maybe it is, I don’t know. But what I do know from people who have accomplished major things in life, is that discipline is one of the keys. It’s one of the most important traits that will get us things done whether we feel like it or not. Here are a few explanations on why I think it is hard for people to get things done.

Limiting Beliefs – Limits that people cast on themselves and others like a curse. They feel like they can’t do something because of reasons that may or may not be true. The scariest part of this is when people aren’t even aware that they have limiting beliefs. How would someone go about breaking their limiting beliefs if they aren’t even aware of them? “I can’t learn algebra”, is a good example because in most cases that is not true. A lot of people who don’t know algebra can’t figure out the most common sense things to do. They will go through loads of nonsense and never figure it out. Some copy homework from others, but when it comes to test time, oh dear lord. Some will make excuses to make self-fulfilling prophecies come true, “see I told you I can’t do it”, and so it is true. “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right.” – Henry Ford. When all they had to do at the end of the day is open an algebra book and read it. Or maybe read the math books that came before it.

Lack of Discipline – The lack of order and obedience to control ourselves. Since we were a little child, we have been disciplined to behave in a certain manner or else we are deemed weird and that something is wrong with us. We have to act a certain way to get and keep a job. While at our job, I think most people are disciplined enough by society to keep their job and not flip out. Also some of us don’t want to lose our only money-making methods and get fired. The question that bothers me is, why can’t we have the same discipline that we have at work? Is it because at work we only have very few things were allowed to do, so we aren’t distracted? I mean a lot of us can’t control ourselves from the distractions and diversions that run our lives at home (television, social media, cellphones). Is this the loop we put ourselves through to get over the lack of fun at work? Maybe if we had less materialistic objects, became a minimalist, and cleared our minds of things to do, we would have enough mental clarity to be able to accomplish our dreams.

Lack of Faith People that don’t believe in themselves enough to make anything happen. Why waste time if we have already reasoned with ourselves on why we cant do something? Lack of faith and Lack of Discipline are knocking on our skulls here, buy one get one free. You know how some people are cheapskates with money and waste time like its nothing? Well, they wouldn’t be fussing over money and being cheapskates if they knew how to use their time well to make it. Okay maybe they would still remain cheap, but at least they would know how to use their time more wisely.

I will end this deep topic here, I could go into deeper thought but I think this is good for now. Goodluck to everyone that is trying to accomplish their dreams.
