Game Knights, University Sims & Fortnite.

Gaming has been the perfect distraction from the current environment. Video games, board games, card games, it doesn’t matter. All forms of gaming have provided me a way to distance myself from all things Covid-19. Therefore, I wanted to share a couple of updates as to how gaming is providing me happiness throughout this time.

Winning the Game Knights Contest

Shortly before entering Quarantine, I found out through Twitter I had won the Game Knights contest in February 2020. It was exciting! I received a signed Forest playmat, bright yellow sleeves, a green deck box, and a couple of booster packs. I used the green deck box to put my new deck in, but the sleeves and playmat have remained untouched. I have touched on recently how I’m back into playing Magic, and this added to my excitement. A special thanks to the Command Zone cast who sent me these items.

Partying in Sims #3 University Life

Sims 3 is iconic. During a blizzard or in quarantine, Sims #3 passes the time. I purchased the University expansion pack from Steam. I’m in awe at how improved the University expansion is versus the Sims #2 version. It’s more realistic and my sims get invited to social outings. I created the cast of New Girl which includes Nick Miller, Jessica Day, Schmidt, and Winston. It’s been a blast.

Playing Fortnite Online

I never thought I would be saying this, but I have been playing Fortnite. Fortnite is a game I had written off as a game I would never play. A couple of friends from work invited me to play Fortnite and it was actually fun. To be clear, I wouldn’t play this game alone. Fortnite is meant to be played with friends and it’s one of the few games that’s cross-platform.

Next, I hope to complete KH3 (Kingdom Hearts III) along with getting further along in Jedi Fallen Order. I’m playing Monster Prom on Steam and I want to unlock all the bonus endings. Finally, I’m trying out Xbox game pass and I downloaded a couple of games on Xbox. I’m trying to make mini gaming goals, so I can be more productive as a gamer, wish me luck!

  1. I need a break from all the covid talk too, hearing about it at work is enough for me. Gaming isy ultimate escape with Darksiders, Halo, Pokemon, Spyro, and Stardew Valley

    • ^^^ It’s everywhere! Its in the podcasts I listen to, I hear about it at work. Gaming does a great job at transporting me away from it all. Halo is awesome. I haven’t played Pokemon in forever.

      • And I happen to work in pharmacy so yeah hearing about it at work is one thing, but as soon as I leave, I don’t want to talk about it. It’s all over social media too. 😖 i recently picked up Omega Ruby again.
