Loose Ends 4….

I guess the pen brought this back.

Loose Ends 4 is my revelation of poetry and rhyme. A lot of it is still inspired by T.I, but I began to let my mind explore and lose the filters I used on the rhyme because during the last 3, I held back punches. Doing this tarnished the quality of my work, so the kid gloves are off. rust me, my poetry is serious, but rap is just for kicks, for entertainment, and honestly…I can say if I could produce feasible quality, then 90% of these ‘artists’ in mainstream have no excuse for the lack of substance in the art.

So far, I wrote 3 distinct verses and hoping for 10 more. The timing is rather different, as 9/1/12 is the release date of everything.

For the final spiel, I want to dwell into what made me real as a gamer. When I was a kid, it was all I had. No siblings, so all I had was a control stick ready to be dominated. I basically bust my ass when it comes to every game, no sandbagging, and I play every game like it is my last. It is a contradiction to my Part II spiel, but it is true.

I do everything from watch film, train, practice, compete in clan matches, read strategy forums, even getting trained by great players in certain games. I do time-attacks in adventure games for fun, play action-adventure games on the hardest difficulty, compete in the major and minor RTS games, and working on spanking the sports genre.

I believe in trial by fire. If you’re new to the game, get thrown to the wolves! Do NOT go after similar sheep since it will give you false confidence. Knock the best mofo off his or her perch. Establish yourself by kicking major ass, not playing in the minor leagues.

So, are you REALLY a gamer?!

 

I know I am

Why Did I Become a Gamer Part I


Why is it that the controller became my best friend,
Taking hours of my life away without an end,
Picking up a control stick never made me sick
I found out that gaming is what made my heart tick….

I, like many others, am a gamer. There is a distinct difference between me and my friends because of one aspect: Gaming is my necessity.

I need the controller because of how it makes me feel. It establishes me as a competitor in the world where people spend their entire lives, hours and hours of practice. I prove that yes, you can live a life and still be a good gamer at the same time. As a kid, it made me not feel alone since I was an only child. To this day, I immerse myself in it for competition. Sure, there are many out there better, but most of them I overcame with an extra hour or two for dedication.
