Watergate was a political scandal in the United States that occurred in 1972 that resulted in the eventual resignation of President Richard Nixon. It was called "Watergate" because the Watergate hotel was where employees of the Nixon campaign broke in, to attempt to steal information about the Democratic Party's plans during the election. Those employees failed, were arrested, and were eventually traced back to the Nixon campaign. It was referred to as the Watergate Scandal because it had originated at the Watergate hotel, and resulted in the resignation of a president.
Valorant is first and foremost a take on the previously uncontested Counter Strike genre. It was described to me before I tried it out as a combination of CS:GO and Overwatch, which sounds intriguing, but it's not entirely accurate. I have never played CS:GO. There's no particular reason why I never played it, I just never got around to it, but I do have a decent understanding of the game based on videos and streams. Because I'm new to the genre I will for the most part be comparing Valorant to other First Person Shooters. Here I'm going to break down what exactly Valorant is as a game, what misses in terms of playability for me, a casual player, and the parts of it I genuinely enjoy.
Tim looked up towards Jupiter through his telescope. He couldn’t quite make out the huge planet through the dim lens, but he knew it was there. He had found the telescope in a Salvation Army two years ago. It had been rusted and partially cracked down the side, the magnification was so weak it barely improved on the naked eye, but Tim loved it. He made a quick note in his book and then frowned. According to the textbook Jupiter had a bright red spot on its surface, a storm twice the size of Earth swirling at speeds faster than a hurricane. Tim thought the picture made it look like a fat, angry zit. Except nobody had ever tried to pop it.
"David, why aren't you taking notes?" asked Ms. Thompson, pausing in the middle of a slide.
