Welcome, TAY! Welcome to the ‘Nach Didn’t Forget to Post the OF Cause He Lives in a New Timezone’ Open Forum. I am reaally sorry I completely forgot about the last two (?) weeks my fellow TAYmates. Life can get cray here in the west, with E3 and then the World Cup and then... Wait naw I didn’t forget this today.

Let’s take this opportunity and catch up with what has happened in the two weeks that I completely forgot about you all :(

E3 happened and oh boy... Is it me or was the whole show kinda disappointing? We got to see a bunch of new titles but many of them were just shown and not playable... And the games that were playable were.... Ummm not that amazing. Maybe it was my own experience, especially being in the showfloor dodging people, but I just don’t think I liked E3 2018.

And yet... I still had a good time with friends and meeting new people and of course, new experiences:

Following right after E3 ended the World Cup started. And yes... Despite it being hosted by a country who outright bought the hosting duties it’s been an interesting tournament. Almost all of the teams are sporting new faces and new mentalities adding that much needed spice to a tournament that has been not so wonderful for the past decade or two.

With the bracket stage right around the corner the tourney is bound to get more exciting and we’ll probably see the true colors of each team, but the most important thing is that it has been an exciting mid-season of football.

Anywhoo... Time to wrap this up and get the questions rolling. I won’t ask much about either of my two topics today, so I’m going to keep it brief:

  • How did you feel about the show? What was your favorite game shown?
  • World cup! Are you watching it? Who are you rooting for?
  • Any new songs TAY? Share your best new pick!

Today’s song is a new fave of mine:
