What is the best way to play Elden Ring?
It’s been a long time since we first heard about Bandai Namco’s new upcoming action RPG, and to be honest, it doesn’t seem like we’ll be playing it any time soon. The game is supposed to be a spiritual successor to Dark Souls but in reality, it looks more like Dark Souls than anything else. For starters, there are now weapon transformations; something that was not part of Dark Souls at all.
How to create your own journal?
Keeping a journal is an important activity for anyone, but especially for gamers. Whether you’re playing alone or with friends, it can be really easy to forget just how much fun you had while tackling that final boss. But with a journal at your side, all of those epic stories will live on in print so that your children and grandchildren can know what makes YOU such a great gamer! Here are some tips to getting started
How to get started with your journal?
I’m going to go ahead and assume you have a journal, or at least access to one. If not, here’s some good places to find one
Let’s talk about writing styles
The most commonly used approach for writing stories is something called in media res which, in Latin, means into or among things. This approach tells a story from its middle and gives you context as you read it. It’s hard to pull off without giving away important information at both the beginning and end of your piece.
Fun reasons why you should keep a journal (even if you don’t play video games)
Write down your goals. Write down your feelings. It’s been proven that writing makes people feel better and more positive, even if they have to make up some of it! If you’re feeling overwhelmed, grab a pen and paper and scribble away. Your life can turn around when you just take time to write it out. Don’t let writing be a chore, but rather a healthy coping skill for whatever it is you need help with at that moment in time.
Things I learned from writing an actual essay for my 9th grade English class
The right words say a lot more than emoticons. Keeping a journal of your most important thoughts is not only entertaining but can serve as invaluable guidance if you ever lose sight of your goals. Throughout my time playing Elden Ring, I found myself keeping track of my progress, ideas and valuable secrets in my journal. If you’re planning on playing, I recommend picking up a notebook and writing down whatever comes to mind for future reference.
Realizing the importance of journals and what they can do for you
The best part about journals is that they’re personal and convenient. They don’t cost much, can be written on in any environment, and aren’t a huge hassle to carry around—particularly if you get a smaller one for quick notes. A journal is like having your own personal travel companion who will never say no when you ask them to come with you on your travels or missions.
