My name is Edvin Dizdarevic.
I have recently created a YouTube channel that I will be working on in the field of Gaming Journalism and just other fun videos that have to do with gaming.

Ohhh I know you probably haven't heard that one in these blogs.. haha just kidding obviously. But for now I will dedicate most of my efforts in these blogs, and the channel will come a little later. I will be starting my first year of college this august and I will focus on starting the year off right. I will be majoring in Electrical Engineering. I will keep up with new news and blogs but the channel won't have true content for a little while, but bare with me.

I do indeed aim to take this as seriously as I can and work at it. I was inspired by watching Destructoid over the past few years or a little over a year to be more precise. and recently by Rev3 and PewDiePie

If I somehow made a living of this I couldn't even explain how stoked I'd be.

My all time favorite games are
Bioshock Infinite for its vast depth of story and "inception"
Fallout New Vegas for its post apocalyptic feel, storyline, goofiness, and replay value.
and obviously I have to mention Skyrim because it will stand as one of the greatest games ever created. Bethesda is just a frikkinn powerhouse.

I own a Xbox360, but Microsoft has let me down so I will be a proud owner of the PS4 when it is released.

If you actually took the time to read this, I thank you, and I hope you visit my channel


or catch me on that live feed

I will warn you that I do not have outstanding recording equipment yet, but I am working on it,
and my intro definitely needs work.

Honestly I will take any criticism and pointers that anyone has for me, and if you maybe want to help with the channel, I will gladly accept your help and you will absolutely get the recognition you deserve.

I want this to become a community and a friendly experience for everyone..
For that i will need help and suggestions. I'd love any you would be willing to offer and I promise you will get the recognition for it.
I hope you're as excited about this as i am.

I had woken up in the Mojave one day long ago after a trip to the Gamestop at the mall. The Mojave.. a fantastic place filled with Deathclaws, Molerats, and those ever so annoying Cazadors. A beautifully amazing disgustingly terrifying deserted wasteland vibrant with all different races and factions of people. This including the desert fuzz the NCR, the anarchistic homosexuals Caesar's Legion, the extreme pyromaniacs that are the Boomers, the Brotherhood of Steel, and the Great Khans. Oh how wonderfully confusing it is, isn't it?

This wonderful creation that Bethesda molded, I say molded because it is a make of pure artwork, I speak of is Fallout:New Vegas. Yes many obsessed over Fallout 3, it's predecessor, but for me New Vegas was much more enjoyable. Fallout 3 was just to dark and to grim for me personally. New Vegas brought this kind of life to the wasteland that was so attractive to me as a gamer and lover of post-apocalyptic pop culture. This is the first game that I acquired that had an actual storyline. before this experience, I was the "bro-gamer" Call of Duty was all I knew. Thank god that sad phase in my life is over thanks to Vegas.

My eyes were forced open by the gorgeous open world, the fact that the main story wasn't even close to half of the actual experience, the goofy slapstick, and the plenty of references that I couldn't help but love each time I heard or experienced one. My favorite of all is when you have the Wild Wasteland perk and Rex makes a reference to Jimmy falling in a well! hahah how great.

Play the game as you please. Join a side.. and there isn't only two to choose from, help factions in their own personal fights, build a companion base with all the different races of the wasteland. Arcade the Follower of the Apocalypse and a former member of the Enclave, Boone the elite 1st Recon sniper with a vengeance, Lily the schizophrenic Nightkin, Raul the ghoul mechanic, Cass the hardass B!+%$, and Veronica a disillusioned Brotherhood of Steel Scribe, ED-E the prototype eyebot with a great story, and Rex the cyberdog with several brains to choose from. And that doesn't even include the interesting people you get to meet throughout the wonderful DLCs.

There is still so much that I adore and so many experiences I cherish from this game that I forget to mention, and did not want to bore you with. You'll just have to pick it up and see yourself, and it is very inexpensive these days. This is a game I highly recommend, and is my favorite game of this gaming generation. Thank you Bethesda for the lesson in gaming you have given me, I will never again pick up a Call of Duty game unless it is to play Zombies. And I am truly not knocking any Call of Duty enthusiasts. I have clocked in my very large fair share of hours, but knowing that I no longer have to rage violently during a game has given me peace. Now I enjoy playing games that feel like I am playing a damn good book, and sometimes even teach me something new and interesting.
