I have been having a bit of a sleep issue lately. This is different than the usual sleep issues I have (no time for it, can’t get comfortable, nightmares, cats sleeping on my head). For whatever reason… I can’t seem to go to sleep when it’s dark out. I know, it’s weird… but remember that this is me we’re talking about.
Additionally… my family got me an XBox One for Christmas. I know… I know… I don’t know what I did (or didn’t) do to deserve something so spectacular. The best part? It’s the XBox One – Limited Edition Halo 5: Guardians Bundle.
My last XBox was the XBox 360 – Limited Edition Halo 3… the green and gold one. When I got the Red Ring Of Death on it, I refused to send it in because Microsoft would have just sent me a refurbished one, and not necessarily one that was a Special Edition. I spent 26 days in Sabine County (Texas) eating cold Chef Boyardee and getting eaten by Fire Ants for that console in 2005… there was no way I was sending it to a chopshop.
So yeah… I’m a bit of a Halo fanatic. Even when I didn’t have a console, I’d still watch the cartoons, the movies, and follow the Halo news.
Which now with my sleeping issue… well… let’s just say that Halo 5 (even though my stats clearly indicate that I’m playing like a n00b) had me at assassination. I have been playing both the campaign and the slew of new multi-player options. After 2 weeks I FINALLY had my first multi-player Slayer win. While I’m a fan of all the traditional multi-player modes, to be totally honest, I am really loving the Warzone.
So yeah… that’s my new 3:00 am thing… assassinating people.
I know… it’s rough being me.
