2014, which was a decent year for gaming, is long gone. I’ll be uploading my top 10 games of 2014 shortly but I still have to complete a couple of games and contemplate their placement on my list. So, in the meantime, I decided to compose a list of my most anticipated games of 2015, a year that shows more promise than its predecessor. The list of 2015 releases is insurmountable, since many 2014 titles were delayed to the following year, and a lot of them have potential to be something amazing. I could have made a list of 20 or more games, but I decided to keep it short and simple; this means that there will be honorable mentions. Along with my 10 most anticipated games of 2015, I look forward to The Division, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Until Dawn, Evolve, No Man’s Sky, Halo 5 Guardians, Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number, and Yoshi’s Wooly World. But these next 10 games, ordered alphabetically, have got me extremely pumped for 2015, and I look forward to seeing how they are received both critically and commercially, and come next year, how many of them will land on my Top Games of 2015 list.
This next tune of mine is one of my personal favourites. As I mentioned in a previous post, I am not one to write a song about myself; I may take certain thematic elements such as love, loss, or destruction from my life and experiences, but will ultimately write a story about someone or something else. This time around, I wrote a song that is a little closer to home. As someone who struggled with a mental illness, I know how tough coping with reality can be, and this song is just about that. Long story short, this song is about a schizophrenic boy whose best friend is an imaginary man who takes an umbrella with him everywhere he goes. And one day, he just disappears… So the boy is just left with his thoughts as he copes with his predicament. This is also the first song where I started using my delay pedal and fell in love with the empty, spacey feel it portrayed and how it complimented the rest of the song. So please take a listen! As always, the quality isn’t necessarily the best but using headphones does make it sound a tad bit better.
