I am the epitome of a carnivore. Plain and simple. I was brought up eating burgers, bacon, steaks, chicken, turkey, etc. You name it, I’ve probably eaten it. I’ve seen so many meatless alternatives come along. Some meant to imitate the flavor of a certain meat and some just to stand on their own, like black bean burgers. I love black bean burgers, but I’ve never viewed them as a replacement for meat. I’ve always felt that all of the good tasting meatless products were always like comparing apples and oranges with real meat. I’d recently heard about this new thing called “The Beyond Burger.” I’d heard it was meant to be a replacement and that you couldn’t even tell the difference between it and a regular beef patty. I thought to myself, “There is no way that they can make a meatless burger taste like meat let alone mirror it’s texture.” So I figured I better see what this is all about…

With my childhood gaming roots being mostly with Nintendo, I’ve always found myself to be a Mario and Zelda fan. That being said, I’ve never passed up the chance to play the masterpieces that come once in a blue moon. Titles like Grand Theft Auto 5, Final Fantasy VII, etc. I’ve been playing Far Cry 5 on Xbox One X since it’s release and it may not be without flaw or even considered a masterpiece, but that doesn’t stop it from being an incredibly fun title that will suck you in from the moment you pick up the controller.
