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.
The ctOS.. The Central Operating System. The basis of "Watch Dogs" gameplay. This thing that everything is connected through. From your phone to your laptop to your car to everything else. Take a moment and think... Is this just a good a idea for a game? Is it something that is just a far-fetched idea that only can exist in this game created for pleasure of gamers?
If you were to think that this is just that, you are sadly and absolutely wrong. You are never private EVER. Trust me when I tell you, when a right, or wrong person dependent upon perspective, person running/operating/creating the devices and software that you use can see everything you do. These people can literally find out exactly who you are, what you believe, where you go, how often. When your phone asks you to mark your location as your place of work, or your place of education and you say no. You feel as if you are off the grid, they have instilled this false sense of security within you. Aisha Tyler said at a panel at ComicCon "you are not a person, you are an accumulation of data points." A man like Aiden Pearce can easily exist in our reality. This game should be taken a little more seriously and maybe people should play it and take it for what could possibly happen. Then again this may feed a paranoia that could be justified but still could create an unnecessary issue for the individual.
And your outlook on the concept and reality of this is exactly that, your outlook and your perspective. This is good within the reason that the right people can keep you, your family, and your country safe by tracking literally everything. But my own perspective is one of pure paranoia. I do not want people seeing me and listening to everything I say. They theoretically, and honestly it is a definite thing, can read everything I am typing by tracking my keystrokes upon my keyboard. But my outlook is also in a matter of speaking, hypocritical. I love technology and the way it advances and evolves and all of the opportunities still out there, because I myself am studying computer science as my major, but on the other hand I want my privacy. Is this wrong? again. Perspective. Perspective. Perspective.
And on a deeper, philosophical view, everything in this world is perspective. Everything is objective to the way it is viewed. War, Love, Peace, Nuclear power, Life itself, Religion. the only thing not subject to such scrutiny is numbers.
This asks the question, do you the individual know enough about what you hold at the palm of your hand. Don't be just one of the sheep, do not be ignorant and passive, ask the important questions. "I am here to shatter your illusions" (Aiden Pearce)
