So Borderlands 3 was announced and had a trailer released at Pax East 2019 during the Gearbox conference which was also live streamed. For a long time it was assumed that the Borderlands series was discontinued and gearbox had actually cancelled plans to make a 3rd installment to the series because no one had heard anything about a sequel even multiple years after the release of Borderlands 2 which was in 2012. Also Borderlands 2 is still doing decently as a game with fans continuing to play because it is now just an old classic and said to be one of the best looter-shooter games of all time which attracts new people to try it out at least once and they usually end up falling in love with it because of how fun the game play is and how entertaining and immersive the story and whole world is. When I am writing this Borderlands 3 has just been released so we don’t have too much information to go off of. However when I post that it may be different but in the trailer at least there were many familiar faces to the Borderlands series and and fans of the Borderlands series and it boasted a selection of 1 billion guns to collect and use. I am pretty excited for the new Borderlands because it was so unexpected because I had given up on the idea of a third installment to Borderlands and even if there isn’t much more the game has to offer compared to Borderlands 2 as in new features i’d still be happy playing it.
So last weekend I was bored and a couple friends and I jumped onto Gmod to mess around. We stumbled onto a Hogwarts Rp server to just meme around and this is what happened. This happened within like 30-35 mins and I didn’t know what else to write.
When I first joined the server I named myself “Muy Malo Malfoy” just as a random joke and immediately after entering the school and getting sorted by the sorting hat (got Hufflepuff btw can I get an F) I was interrogated by admins of the server because I had a name that related to the books because it was referring to the Malfoy Family. They told me to change it but I didn’t know how because it was my first time on the server and I kept telling them this and they kept getting more angry and I got a 12 hour ban. But, thankfully my friends went and found another admin and told them what happened. So I got unbanned and rejoined and was given the name Gary Promotiono (this is important later on).
First thing me and my friends decided to do was explore. We walked around and we found a bridge that takes you to Hagrid’s hut and the Dark Forest. When we started to go across the bridge though there was a lock down at Hogwarts and if you weren’t back in time and you are caught out and about it is a small ban (they have some really strict admins but some also don’t really care). Me and my friends decide whatever lets just not get caught cause we wouldn’t know how to get to our house rooms anyways. We make it halfway across the bridge and Hagrid shows up and tells us to go back to the school so we head back but I hide around a corner and when Hagrid passes by me I run across the bridge to his hut.
When I reached his hut there were 2 other guys walking around I assume they are also running around when they shouldn’t be out it turns out they are snatchers and they kidnap me with handcuffs and they drag me into the dark forest. Normally you aren’t allowed to go into there or you get a certain time ban as well but since I was getting kidnapped I didn’t have a choice. They took me to a graveyard and put me up for sale, at first they put me up for around 25,000 Galleons but when I said that made me feel special they dropped it to 10,000. My friends said they couldn’t come get me cause there were other snatchers in the dark forest and we didn’t know any spells cause we just joined the server and they didn’t have the funds to release me. But, remember when I said remember the name I was given Garry Promotiono well apparently there are families in the Rp and the head of the Promotiono family was on and he came and bought me and let me free. I thought the snatchers would get mad but they didn’t and I realized it was because in the end they still got 10,000 Galleons.
I did some other stuff too that day but that was probably the most interesting thing that happened also it was my first experience on the server. Other than that I just went around did what you are supposed to do which is to go to classes and collect homework to get experience so you can become a second year and learn spells in class.
Recently over winter break I decided to purchase Left 4 Dead 2 because it was recommended to me by friends and it had a holiday sale. At first I was a bit hesitant because I thought it might end up being one of the games that I open once a month for 30 mins because of how old it is. Left 4 Dead 2 was released in 2009 making around 10 years old. But, I got it any ways because it was super cheap anyway and when I started playing I all my expectations were surpassed. For a game made in 2009 it still had pretty fun game play with cool mechanics for different zombies you could become and all the different weapons and not to mention the really well made maps. As well as the fact that their are still many active players on PC so it wasn’t as hard to find a game as I thought. Playing with friends also made very fun because of how hectic it was and it seemed as there was never any downtime. Though Left 4 Dead 2 is really old I still think it is one of the best if not the best zombie game I’ve ever played and it should set the bar for any other zombie games.
