What’s Up, Players?!
G’Day Gamer Gals & Guys!
Kallisto Ru Here, Wishing You The Merriest of Mondays!
Monday isn’t usually a favorite day of the week, but I am hoping to cheer you up and put a smile on your face!
Today my blog post is indeed about gaming… just mixed with a little tomfoolery!
Sometimes you have to laugh in the face of everything seeming to go wrong!
One positive already is that today’s blog was formed in my mind thanks to all the problems I am having with my internet!
That’s why you always have to stay positive and make lemons out of lemonade!
If you have been following my daily blog, you’ll know that I am have been dealing with
Costa Rican internet for weeks now, and I am still waiting for them to come back and finish what they started.
As many of you know, (especially Saljack Enterprises, GOD Bless them!) 🙂
I couldn’t upload a video without it taking 3 days!
(That is not an exaggeration!)
And streaming was completely out of the question.
Well, just to prove that things can always get worse…
Saturday morning, my internet went out completely!
Literally, altogether, completely!
And to top it off, the manager of the complex has been out of town since Friday.
So we have had no internet all weekend, and no recourse on how to fix it!
It is Monday morning and we still have no internet.
I honestly have no idea how I am going to get this blog post to you, but I am hoping a restaurant nearby has wifi!
Unfortunately, wifi here is not as prevalent as it is in the States.
But.. I am afraid to leave and miss the internet guys if they come!
This type of thing makes me want to move to the states for sure, if only for great internet.
The prices to rent here are amazing, but I need internet to work and pay for the house in the first place.
I am hoping and praying that the new internet guys come today, and finally put an end to my internet free misery!
First World problems, I know!!
Anyway, all of these shenanigans got me thinking about…
the “old days of gaming”.
The days when you didn’t need to go online to game.
I mean the days when you went into the living room, tuned the tv to channel 3, and flipped on your gaming console.
And you happily spent the rest of the afternoon with your favorite character, journeying another internet-free adventure!
Can you tell this whole no-internet thing has affected me a little?!!
And I don’t mean to trivialize XBOX or PLAYSTATION and the other home consoles of this generation, but really, most of the games make you go online for upgrades or downloadable content.
Half of the games that I am currently playing and reviewing all require the internet to play!
From the amazing open world games that you can play and navigate with players from around the world.. to the incredible list of amazing online games that you can play in 2017…
All of it does me no good if I have no internet!
So, my trusty, dusty home game console was starting to look better and better …
So, I decided to play for a few hours this weekend, and it was really fun for a while…
but then it started to get lonely.
And then it hit me!
I miss you all!
And I have met most of you through online gaming!
Yes, I can game in my living room at home, but I sure can’t upload and share my gaming with you without internet!
No matter what, if you want to stream or upload your games, you need to go online.
There would be no Twitch, No Youtube Gaming, No Hitbox without the capabilities of the internet.
It’s truly insane to me how much we depend on going online!
But with that, how many awesome opportunities have presented themselves to gamers from the powers of the internet?!
We could spend the day talking about this and adding in different personal opinions regarding home consoles and online gaming, and still not have covered everything!
I for one, am thankful to have the option to do both.
I can play with my trusty, dusty home consoles with friends & family & join my friends around the world on epic quests and adventures online!
I am sure that when electricity first came out, people like me were hard fighting to still use candles!
Haha! At least I came around! 😉
Love you all and pray for my internet to come on today!
See you tomorrow on anther edition of Ru’s Daily Blog!
