Event: Ubisoft Forward (3 p.m. EST)

In a little over thirty minutes, Ubisoft is going to have their digital showcase that would have happened during e3 this year.

Except, you know, the world went nuts.

I have to admit this is generally my least exciting conference when the event is going on, but this year I am actually quite a bit more excited. The promise of a new Far Cry, the chance of seeing more of Watch Dogs: Legion and seeing more information about Valhalla has me excited for the rest of the year.

Some predictions:

  1. More information about Division 2 and where the game is going.
  2. New ANNO news, either another DLC or a brand new entry into the series
  3. Hopefully more information about Skull and Bones, their standalone game that uses the Black Sail ship combat as a standalone game
  4. More information about Valhalla, and maybe a sneak peak on what DLC is going to look like
  5. Three brand new titles.

Anyway, those are my thoughts about what we are about to see. What about you? Any last minute predictions or wants? Sound off below and let me know.

What’s Happenin’, Cap?

I think I am going to start this as a series for the weekend, listing what’s going on/what I might be playing, as well as call attention to anything special going on in the gaming/hobby like world.

This weekend should be a pretty chill weekend for me, although I do plan on watching the Ubisoft conference happening on Sunday. I’m cautiously optimistic for Watch Dog: Legions, and if Assassins Creed: Valhalla is as good as Odyssey I think we will be in for a treat.

Games I am currently playing:

  1. Planet Zoo
  2. Destiny 2
  3. Space Haven (super fun indie I found during the Steam sale)

What are your plans this weekend? What will you be playing? Sound off in the comments below, I want to know!

Whatever you are doing, stay safe, stay well.

The World Has Lost It

Or maybe it never had it.

If you have stumbled upon this place, I first wanted to say thank you for arriving.

This is going to be a new project for me: my goal is to make a new post once a week. The topics will be many, from video games, streaming, life, the world…who knows. I guess you could say it will be about whatever I am feeling for that day, week, month…year.

It will be a way for me to express myself that seems to be needed in these times.

So lets make introductions, shall we?

I’m Captain_Aegis, otherwise known as Cap. I’m a 30 something, video game loving content creator that started making content for charity streams and am now branching off into other fields. I guess by the standards today I’m “too old” to be trying content creation, but hey…you have to try before you can know if you would fail.

I’ve never posted a picture online, nor have I ever streamed with a web cam for personal reasons relating to how I feel about myself. I love movies, good books, and good food aside from my technology passion. I have a day job, but am currently looking to change careers (that is actually partially why this blog came to be). I ramble often, but I think I have a good heart…or try to, at least.

So why should you keep visiting? Why should you save this blog to check back in on in the future? What sort of content should you expect?

I have no idea.

But I can tell you that it will be quite the ride. And we will explore it, together.

Welcome to my home.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
