Fall? Ha ha! - Brawlhalla Review

   Brawlhalla is a party fighting game developed by Blue Mammoth Games, published by Xaviant Games, and available on Steam as Early Access. It's essentially a Smash Bros. clone on PC. Pick a "legend", step into a fight with 2-4 players, and duke it out in a two-dimensional arena of cartoony violence.

   One thing is certain, the game is just as addictive as Smash Bros. which is nice considering it's still in beta. Brawlhalla's gameplay is interesting and differentiates itself from other fighters in various ways, especially the game everyone is going to immediately compare it to. In fact, let's just get on with what this game really is and stop mentioning Smash.

Definition of "Blogfade"

   It is a little after New Year's... of the following year. Here's a big update on everything that has happened:

   Picking up where I left off, I was working in fast food but things went south. I was able to enjoy some money for once but hours were few and far between before they just stopped putting me on the schedule. Finding another job took a couple of months and I'm now working in retail as a cashier and have been since May. While that may not sound very majestic, it's heaven compared to fast food. I'm working more hours at a higher salary and the working conditions are much more pleasant. As a result... wait, let me find some fanfare... okay, here we go. As a result, I was able to afford a NEW COMPUTER!

   My shiny new laptop is an Asus ROG GL551JW. I'll skip the big paragraph where my eyes bug out and my age regresses by 15 years as I describe the exact specifications of my device. Just know that this computer is much more durable and much more powerful than my previous model. I no longer have graphics issues and I can play games at a higher quality without lag.

  "I'm sure you didn't buy that computer in the last few days, what have you been doing since you bought it?" You are completely correct, perceptive reader. I've basically been buying everything off my bucket list and lollygagging. I had the pleasure of playing many great games over the past year, such as Persona 4 Golden, Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate, Grand Theft Auto 5, and Undertale among many others. Of course, that was at the expense of leaving my website in the dust. Eventually, the blur of sex, drugs, and rock-n'-roll pay games ended and I realized I needed to get back to business. That happened back in November. I waited until now just to keep in line with my "little after New Year's" statement. Sorry.

   Basically, I don't have a good reason as to why this blog has faded. For a time, I was busy with work and classes but even during the times things had calmed down, I still didn't keep up the site. For now, though, consider things opened.
