Finally put in some time with Titanfall last night. My internet has been a little more stable these past few days and I was able to stay online for a while. I had a good ping too, actually. I have to admit Titanfall is pretty fun... not totally groundbreaking, but at least original enough to be exciting and new. It's hard to build upon a classic formula like COD, but Respawn managed to do it. I can see how though that after a while, it would get pretty boring once the novelty runs out, as it doesn't have the depth of say Left 4 Dead or Counterstrike. It gives good twitch though, and I'm glad I finally got to spend some time with it. It is fun, and while it might not last or be as earth shaking as we want it to be, fun is still fun.
I don't go much for ideology these days. When I was younger I relied on belief systems and passions, but no more. The only thing that matters to me is my family and my friends. I can't change the world, and if I could, I wouldn't be foolish enough to think I knew what to change it into. All I can do is focus on my own little part of the dream, and live each minute the best I can. Neither am I a patriot -- the liberal government and its conservative corporate overlords would butt rape me and leave me in a ditch by the side of the road if it benefited them, and believe me the feeling is mutual. That being said I love my country. And as much as I try to believe men and women are good at heart, I am constantly confronted by their evils, both modest and insane -- as well as my own. I guess what I'm trying to say is that we live in a world fraught with danger -- and not just from murderous zealots, but also from the guy in the car next to you on the highway. The only advice I can give anyone about this world is to hold your family and loved ones close; things are so fragile -- and try not to get caught up in the bullshit out there. Life is more important.
