New horizons

Well, it is very possible that I lose my job due to the current events in Nicaragua, I will join to thousands and thousands of people who lost their job too.

It is certainly sad what my country have turned into, I find it unbelievable. It's unbelievable what people are willing to do to get political power, to hold that political power.

Anyway, nowadays instead of complaining I try to find solutions, I'm still alive and losing my job it's not the end of the world. Still, I can't help it but feel anxious and worried, I've been working nonstop over 7 years now, it's not a clear future ahead indeed. Though I wouldn't worry about losing my job in a normal situation but what's happening in Nicaragua it's not normal, this crisis is affecting everyone and authorities are worsening the situation.

So, the problem is there's no new job offerings and if there are, those are low average payed jobs, or there is a lot of competition for good jobs. My bet will be getting an online job, I have some skills I can offer online, I'm trusting I will be able to get a decent everyday online job, at least just to pay the bills, if not, I will consider making a new life outside this country.

PS: did I mention I'm officially in austerity? well now you know.

New look

So, since I plan to write more often here, I decided to change things. And by changing things I mean changing the blog's look, because it seemed it was designed by a 10 year old kid, who by the way, was in a hurry to go to play outside [or more likely to play videogames lol].

It was something I wanted to do some time ago but I was lazy to do it, or I thought it was going to be hard. But today I took the time to do it, and I have to mention it wasn't hard at all.

Overall I think it looks fine, at least it looks better than before. It looks more serious, it looks a bit professional, it has more colors, it isn't as monochrome as it was before. Besides, I added a fixed navigation menu.

I think there is space for some improvement, but it's a good start. This is the before and after, judge for yourself.

Leaving the Darkness

I finally finished the Darkness, it was fun, and combat was fun too. It also has a high sense of
dark humor, pun intended lol.

It didn't take me a lot of time to finish the game, as I said before it isn't long but neither short. As for story, it’s just OK. I did feel compelled to finish the game to see its ending. Surprisingly it has 2 endings, I got to see both endings, of course. There’s a New game + mode, but I don’t have time to play it again, I have others games to still play.

Anyway, overall it was good. It has a variety of guns to choose, better guns are found later in the game though. Darkness abilities are fun to use, some passive some active, but useful. Besides, tearing apart enemies doesn't get old, at least to me. Graphics are a little different, but in a good way, I liked it. Sound in general is good too. The darkness voices will keep with me forever.

Embracing the Darkness

So I’ve been playing The Darkness 2, it’s a fun game but since I’m a little old now I don’t like too intense games. I mean, there is a lot of shooting here, or not if you prefer, those 2 snake-like creatures [which are the Darkness] are nasty fellas.

In fact, combat is chaotic, which is good, enemies are very eager to get close to you and kill you. They are very annoying and I cannot avoid feeling good by tearing them apart with the Darkness, it’s really rewarding and I feel better after doing it lol

I think I’m close to finish it, if so, it has a not short not long decent campaign. Story is decent too, for a paranormal game anyway.

Fun fact: I have bought more games than I can play on Steam, so until I finish at least 10 games I can buy new ones. I finished GTA IV The ballad of gay Tony last week, so if I finish The Darkness 2 I will have to finish 8 more games in order to buy new ones. BTW on top of my wishlist is Rise of the Tomb Raider, I know it’s "old" by now but I haven’t played it yet.

Hi... again

As it has happened before, I spent some time without posting something here. I don’t know why I cannot avoid that behavior. Anyway, I think it’s because now I keep myself way busier than before, I mean between working, studying, gaming and spending time with my gf I don’t have much time left. Not to mention I started doing exercises because I’m a little overweight lol and for health too.

I actually like posting my thoughts and things I do here, so I’ll try to do that more often.

Although, there is an actual economical and political crisis where I live (Nicaragua) so my mind is on the edge now, not knowing what’s going to happen, not knowing if I will outlive this situation. I hope so, I’ll do my best (and even my worst if needed) to survive this.

In hard times it’s better to focus on something, otherwise you may lose your mind, and I’m focusing on my job, pending videogames to play and my relationship with my partner. And no, I’m not seeing the other way, nor won’t I see the other way, when so many injustices are done around me.
