David Bowie passed away at age 69 on January 10, 2016 after battling cancer for 18 months. His final music video Lazarus was a final bow and his final gift to all his fans describing his battles and his final days. You can view the video below:
Rainbow Six Siege was launched last week on the Xbox One, PS4 and PC. I've been participating in the beta tests with my friends on Xbox One. The game is great because it allows players to collaborate with each other to complete missions. You have no choice but to work as a team to complete your objectives. Teamwork is key to being successful. Without teamwork, you basically screwed your team and yourself.
While the gameplay is excellent and definitely is an awesome way of working together as a team, there are some kinks that need to be worked out such as the following issues:
- Random disconnects due to server issues: This has been a very painful experience for gamers during beta testing an even post launch, the issue still remains. If this issue can be worked out, this would make the game that much more fun.
- Players getting stuck when prone on stairs or rappeling to rooftops: When you are trying to come out of prone, your player can get stuck and you will not be able to to move.
Overall, this has been a fun experience and I look forward to seeing what else they'll add for DLC.
I give it an 8/10 (due to some of the stability issues with the servers).
Below is my video from the game:
I was listening to Adele's song - Hello. The song was so catchy that several people on Youtube created cover songs. Below is one of the songs I've enjoyed on Youtube from a band called TeraBrite.
I definitely enjoyed the lyrics and did a search on Google to find out what the meaning behind the song was. It turns out, the song was about Adele reconnecting with herself. This song is very beautiful with its melody and baselines. I also enjoyed Jonathan Young's version as well.
After reading an article from Music.Mic, the song makes sense as it was about how Adele reconnected with herself after stepping out of the spotlight for awhile. The song is powerful and moving. You can feel her emotions especially during the chorus.
Overall, I think this song is powerful one as we can all relate to it to some degree. Sometimes we find ourselves lost and we need to reconnect with who we are. This song is a perfect reminder of that for anyone who lost their way and needed some sort of light to guide them back to being themselves again after going through some sort of bad event in their life and trying to get back on their feet again.
