Your Current Favorite Video Game

Hey guys, just posting and wondering if i should currently go to bed at 9:10 am where I live or stay up. Anyways, I was also wondering what everyone's favorite video game is at the moment to play, and I'm talking about a game that you find yourself playing most of the time now. For me, even though it is mostly online and competitive, is Halo: Reach.

I've loved Halo ever since I played Halo CE and I've never really found a game that was just as good up until Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare but since Black Ops, I've found myself going back to Reach. 

I guess regardless what games I play in the future, Halo will always hold a place in my heart because I've been with it since it began and seen it grow over the past few years. It's as if I feel a part of the community that made Halo what it is today. Anyways, that's my rant of the day. What about you guys? Let me know through a comment, thanks for reading :)

Video Games Now-A-Days

Just my two cents of modern video games and how they focus a little too much on the multiplayer.

A Little Rant

Things I've Learned In Life So Far:

1. Don't give up on love so easily, it doesn't give up on you.
2. We all live our lives the same; differently.
3. Night time is the life for those who live off of creativity and passion.
4. Everything happens for a reason, no matter what it is.
5. "Failure simply shows there's more room for improvement."
6. Depression shows your emotions are working correctly, this can last up to a month.
7. Relationships build character, don't lose it.
8. Make plans, even if they don't work out.
9. Cigarette's are to look cool at first. Then it's purely an addiction problem.
10. Drinking alcohol while depressed increases it's time length by double.
11. Life is filled with obstacles, women are part of them.
12. Snuggies are JUST backwards robes.
13. Dogs are adorable, no mater what size.
14. Don't be scared to love someone back unless you want to be a heartbreaker.
15. We are all hypocrites.
16. It's part of Human Nature to act in spite.
17. Patience is key to success.
18. Persistence just means you never quit. Why else would we still be living our lifes?
19. Wisdom is obtained by those who show knowledge of learning their own mistakes.
20. Nothing and no one is better than the other, there are just those who feel there is by opinion.
21. Learn to love your flaws, afterall, you're stuck with yourself until death.

Long Gone But Back, With A Permanent Purpose


"It is better to have faith in something than have faith in nothing at all, even if it means having faith in something you are unsure of. After all, you do have faith in yourself, don't you?"

IB/AP Exams aka Testing Season - A Short Music Blog

So I am back in town but I have found myself in further disfocus from my blog due to exam's for IB and AP. Thus I only have a short amount of time to write a blog. It looks like I will just leave you guys with a youtube video but definitely a good one and one of my favorites.

The Shaws - The Way You Feel
This song is by an upcoming/unsigned band from the UK with a lot of passion with their music. This is one of their single's off of their EP. The song talks about having dealt with a girl in the past who didn't care as much as they had thought. Feel free to check out the video for a few seconds and comment if you liked it or not. Thanks for reading and I hope to be back to blogging soon. Take care! -Dark Scheme

Out of Town

I'll just leave you guys with one of my favorite quotes.

"Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it." -Henry David Thoreau

I just raped a plate of food.. ;)

So Tell Me...

Things in my life right now are going pretty well, it's not too hard but it's not easy either. Everyday I find myself doing something a little different but doing some same things, like staying up late and writing blogs instead of sleeping. I am enjoying life as it is giving me the right amount of everything I like doing -- video games, socializing, small amounts of schoolwork and eating. So now I ask the question why? Why are things like this?

My life consists of what I always describe myself as, a guy who lives his life one day at a time. That is one of the big factors of why my life is like it is. I like it but I also want something more as well. I am satisfied yet at times I think I'm not. I know there's something there but I just can't seem to figure out what it is. It is a piece of my life that I feel I had at one point yet I lost it. I think to myself, "innocence? no, that's not it." And I ask myself again, why are things like this? I feel strong but afraid. Satisfying yet not. My inside seems calm yet destructive by nature. I look for an answer to a question I myself can't find...

I think again at this moment and find what I am miss, what my void needs, what I'm scared of getting myself into again. It is an emotional attachment. The feeling of latching onto something and never wanting to let go. The feeling of having someone other than your relatives or friends or pets to make you feel joy in your heart. In other words, love.

So why are things like they are in my life? It is because I choose to live it like this, one day at a time and without an "emotional attachment."

Portal 2 - My Thoughts

So I finally got Portal 2 a day ago and was fortunate to get it off of the Amazon deal of 35 bucks. I started today and finished a few hours ago and I have to say that game was the most fun I've had with a single player campaign game since Mass Effect 2. Going into it I knew it would be a lot of fun and difficult with certain puzzle as well because of what I had heard from some friends. I can't say I ever played the first Portal so I didn't really know what to expect.
As I played throughout the campaign I found myself more and more entertained, intrigued and creative with the elements provided in the game. The different types of cubes they had, levitating fields, portal to portal tricks and laser reflections and those are just a few. I can honestly say Portal 2 had one of the biggest varieties of elements a game could ask for. There was never something old in the game and that was what I really liked and what surprised me at the same time. Portal 2's campaign was outstanding. Another reason the campaign stood out to me was what I interpreted as a deep past relationship that you, the main character, and GLaDOS, the robot giving you different tests throughout the campaign. As you play further and further into the campaign you feel a sense of connection with each character regardless of the character you are playing never saying a word. With that said, I finished the campaign with the greatest satisfaction a gamer could ask for.

Since finishing the campaign I have heard a lot of good things about Portal 2's co-op playthrough and I plan on playing that as soon as I find a friend willing to run through it with me. I expect the co-op playthrough to be  just as fun as the campaign itself and maybe, and hopefully, even more! With two people creating portal's and shooting your friends through the air, I imagine the puzzle will get tougher in the sense that both players will have to put their heads together and think it through.

Overall, my first and probably not my last experience with Portal 2 was amazing and without a doubt one of the best experiences I have had with a video game in a few months, maybe even a year. Portal 2 is a game that a lot of developers and gamers should be aspired towards not because it's an amazing puzzle game but because it's completely different in it's own genre. Most hardcore gamers expect to have online multiplayer with most games to get into it but what we need to understand is that that is not always the case. Comparing Bioshock 2 and Portal 2, Bioshock released multiplayer for it's game but it never really got a great amount of people playing it constantly and because I feel like they focused on the multiplayer too much I feel that is the reason why Bioshock 2's campaign story was a little lack luster compared to the first Bioshock.

That's about all I have to say guys. Thanks for sticking it out this far on my article as I feel like I went on a little rant at the end there. Nonetheless, I really appreciate it. Once again, thanks.

One Thing I've Never Done

At different ages of everyone's lives we all try out different things whether it be sports, foods and yes the big one, drugs. I can honestly say that I have tried a limited amount of drugs but there is one thing I have never tried that seems like a much bigger deal for me in my life and my morals. I have never cheated on a girl or ever thought about cheating on a girlfriend. I feel that if you do decide to cheat on your girlfriend it is because you are secretly shouting out that you do not want to be with the current girl you're with. This is just purely my opinion and I don't intend on pushing it onto others, I'm just share what I think. I am proud to not have cheated on a girlfriend and I plan on keeping it like this until the day I die.

Thing's that turn me on about a girl

Now I'm going to talk about the things that really turn me on from a girl but I intend to do it in a mature way, meaning these are also things I look for in a girl. When I see a girl for the first time the thing I really look for is her eyes. The beauty of a girl for me really comes from the effect her eyes have on me. I always loved starring into past girlfriends eyes and feeling my heart melting with each second starred down. This made me want to strive more on my social skills with girls or as other like to call it "game." It is without a doubt a plus for me and I am guessing for a lot of guys and girls out there too. Now one thing that I can honestly say turns me on about a girl are the dimples on her lower back. This might not be common on many girls but when it is I honestly find it very attractive, keyword "very." If a girl has both of these I would probably find myself at an utter defeat between the loss of words and the loss in the feelings of my legs and hands.

Something I felt started my critical creative thinking
If you have the time right click the link and watch in a new tab! Let me know what you think, thanks!

Awesome Picture

I found this amazing art of Captain America. Definitely makes me want to get into the arts of drawing but with the little patience I have this probably won't happen. Well, time to start looking for other hobbies.
