In a more mechanical sense, Campo Santo manages to use the conversation system, in tandem with the navigation, as its primary method of advancing the story. Because Henry will report on his findings, which prompts a discussion resulting in Henry obtaining a new location to explore. The symbiotic relationship between the conversation- and navigational systems work well in Firewatch, resulting in an experience that feels guided and focused. Even despite some inconsequential, superfluous methods of engagement, like the photography mode, one cannot escape the fact that there isn 't much going on mechanically in Firewatch. And this lack of meaningful interaction means that a pre-existing affinity for narrative-driven experiences is essential and that Firewatch 's story manages to engross you.

I would love to have a friend like Owen in my life. I base these opinions of Owen on everything that I learn about him on what he says, does, and
Patrick Henry has spoken a very stunning speech today, March 23, 1775 at the Virginia House of Burgesses. The colonial leader was born on May 29, 1736 in a farmhouse. As a young man, he was a storekeeper and farmer, but then he soon studied law and became a lawyer and now an admired speaker. The most famous verse of the long speech was the closing sentence, which is “I know not what course others may take: but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!”Colonists soon found out the purpose of the amazing speech was to persuade the virginians to get ready for the long war against the british.

Prior to taking POLS 1101, I had already obtained much knowledge about America under British rule, and the struggle that led us to become the independent country we are today. What I did not know is our current government structure and the processes and systems of our government. I also learned more about the Electoral College, the United States Supreme Court, the Nuclear Deal, and Britain’s “question time.” I enjoyed participating in these discussions, because each post required research, exploration, and consideration before meaningful dialogue; it requires students to analyze textbooks, the media, and much more, leading to one gaining a well rounded knowledge on a subject. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to read what my peers had to say on the exact same question, comparing and contrasting our answers and opinions.
I also used my visual aid to help me with speaking points. If I was ever stuck I could always look back to regain my train of thought, these worked similar to notecards.

However, I could hear my voice shake throughout the project as well.
