Wow! This might be my shortest update yet. I need to make more time for new things! Actually, I am, I just can’t talk about them yet. Since starting my job at Heavy.com, I got cuddly with some PR agents. Since starting there three weeks ago, I’ve received Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Assassin’s Creed Unity, Rocksmith, Halo: The Master Chief Collection, and Far Cry 4 for free to review and write about. I’m diving in now, but there’s only so much I can tackle at once. I’ll share my thoughts on all and more soon! Anyway, enjoy the post—regardless of its measly length.
Creativity is one of the most important things a human being can express. It’s good for our brains, our hearts, and our souls. It allows people to explore themselves and others in a deep way, something introspection and discussion can’t always do. When consuming others’ creative works, you’re getting a piece of who they are as a person, whether they wanted or intended that or not.
Creativity allows us to function as a society. We’re not merely surviving—we’re living, hour to hour and day to day. How we spend our time digesting others’ creative works—whether that’s a movie, a novel, or a collection of poems—is important to how we grow as people and a community of human beings. I hope reading about the creative content I enjoy (or don’t) gets your creative juices flowing and inspires you to make something great and uniquely your own. At the very least maybe you’ll discover something new you might be interested in.
Far Cry 4 Soundtrack
So Cliff Martinez, the guy who did the soundtrack for Drive (which has some amazing tunes and is a fantastic movie in its own right) composed the music for Far Cry 4. The result is amazing. I’ve only just started playing Ubisoft’s open-world FPS, but the touches of Martinez’s music accent the action so well. It’s just fantastic.
Assassin’s Creed Unity
I review Assassin’s Creed Unity for CGMag. You can give it a read here.
