Far Cry New Dawn

An action-adventure first-person open-world shooter set 17 years after the events of Far Cry 5

If you are a fan of the Far Cry series, you have probably heard of the newest installment of the series called Far Cry New Dawn. It is considered to be a spin-off whose premise is that it takes place seventeen years after the events in Far Cry 5 in fictional Hope County, Montana. Survivors from "the Collapse" attempt to rebuild their community only to have their efforts challenged by a new set of antagonists known as the Highwaymen, which consist of organized bandits led by twin sisters' named Mickey and Lou.

With no good options on the table, the survivors ultimately form an alliance with New Eden, which consists of the remnants of the Project at Eden's Gate from Far Cry 5. The survivors establish this alliance knowing that New Eden has the potential to be an even larger threat than the Highwaymen.

Upon the beginning of the game, you will start with a brand-new character, one who's gender and race are customizable. There are certain aspects of Far Cry 5 that make a return in New Dawn. Some of the prequel's characters make a return in the sequel, although we are not yet sure which ones specifically. Guns for Hire and Fangs for Hire, which are select human and animal allies you can call upon to lend you a helping hand make a return in this sequel. Liberated outposts become fast travel locations for the player to move to specific locations on the game map quickly.

The landscape of Hope County has been altered due to the nuclear war, leaving some previously accessible areas no longer accessible, and vice versa. In a new mode called "Expeditions", your player will now have the opportunity to travel to other locations throughout the United States to obtain packages and resources. New weapons including a "Saw Launcher" have been introduced in the game. Weapons and attachments can be upgraded, and you now have the ability to craft vehicles as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed Far Cry 5. I put in 144 hours in it on Xbox One. I am excited to see what happens in this sequel. If you enjoyed any of the Far Cry games, especially Far Cry 5, I highly recommend that you pick up Far Cry New Dawn.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
