Going for Gold #NBI2015Safari

For my second entry into the #NBI2015Safari aka Murf’s Screenshot Safari, I am going with the “Epic Achievement” category.

I’ve been playing Titanfall for, oh I don’t know, a little over a month now? At some point (I think it was upon reaching level 30) I was prompted to optionally turn on my “ranked chip” which is a fancy way of saying my kills/deaths/points will attribute to something else aside from merely leveling my account. It doesn’t seem as big of a deal as ranked play can be in other games; there doesn’t seem to be a leaderboard so it’s hard to tell where you stack up against other players. It should also be noted that each ranked “season” is only a month long, so it’s not as if this ranking will go down in the annals of time for all to see. No, at the end of the month things will reset and this achievement will cease to be, outside of that link above that says “season history.” Still, it is a recent accomplishment that I’m proud of, and I’m not stopping, no. I might be able to get even higher before the month is out, and I’ll let you know if I do.

If you play Titanfall on the PC, my Origin account is Built4Sin82. Hit me up if you want to get a game in!

Shutdown Gold #PoetrySlam2015

hand01_zpsx0ayubw2

In the absence of Syl in this year’s NBI festivities, Joseph Skyrim has taken up the event typically run by her. This year’s NBI Poetry Slam is focused on gold, or currency of any type, as it pertains to gaming or using real world currency for gaming. Last year I wrote some poetry along with adding a submission that contained song lyrics I had written prior to the event. This time around, it’s a mixture of the two.

The following is a poem I just wrote, but could also double as song lyrics. It’s about League of Legends (go figure) and hopefully the references are apparent. It was inspired and should be sung to the tune of “Gold on the Ceiling” by The Black Keys. Enjoy.

Shutdown Gold

There are many ways
To get the win
Snowball your lane
And get that shutdown gold

Make sure to kill that Baron

They wanna get my
They wanna get my
Gold in their pockets
Destroy turrets
And steal Dragon away
Its a Riot
And now I’m going afk

Teemo shrooms galore
I can’t take much more
Need some MR
and some vision control

Teemo is also known as Satan

They wanna get my
They wanna get my
Gold in their pockets
Destroy turrets
And steal Dragon away
Its a Riot
And now I’m going afk
