Gaming YouTuber Etika found dead

RIP Etika
(May 1990-June 2019)
It is official, Desmond Amofa (also known as Etika) has been found dead. The NYPD took to Twitter to make the sad announcement a little bit ago to share the news. I really wanted all of the speculation I had regarding his disappearance to just be nothing more than speculation, but today it became a tragic reality. 

And after watching his video, I am 100% certain he took his own life. This is quite possibly one of the most tragic deaths of 2019 simply because when he was filming, no one could have possibly known nor imagined the battle he was fighting. 

In the end, he lost his battle. 

Mental illness is very much real and it is should never be mocked as being fictitious. If you are suffering from depression, anxiety and are contemplating suicide, please reach out to me. If you are struggling and battling with the thought of ending your life, you are not alone as there are millions of people just like you. You are not crazy, so don't think you are. And remember your life is too valuable and is worth more than you think.

Rest in Peace Etika.

Gaming YouTuber Etika is Missing

For those of you that do not know, 29 year old gaming YouTuber Etika has been missing since Wednesday, June 19, 2019. He uploaded a video on the same day around 12 am (which was around 10 pm my time here in Idaho) that was titled "I'm Sorry". Gamer Rob Breslau (also known as Slasher on Twitter) uploaded an excerpt of the original video here in tweet he posted a few days ago shortly after Etika's original video was published onto YouTube. 

The original video has been flagged and has been removed; however, you can see the video on various platforms. YouTube continues to remove the video, but the video is being relentlessly uploaded to the platform by fans and friends who share deep concern for the YouTube star. 

After watching the video, I truly believe he has committed suicide. As much as I don't want to entertain this theory, there was something about his eyes and what he said that made me believe he was going to do something to end his life. 

For instance, he said, "I was mentally troubled and far too stone headed to admit it, far too stubborn to face it and far too scared to deal with it." He then said, "as far as I know, there is no life after death. My time ends now, but there is a way for me too. I'll send you all as many blessings as I can from the other side." 

I've had a friend end her life who used the same language, especially the terms "other side" which makes me believe that he did, in fact, end his own life. He talked about the other side a lot towards the end of the video. And he is mysteriously missing hence why I believe he lost his battle. As he was modestly active on social media, it isn't like him to just go and make this kind of video and end up missing for days after with no explanation.  

I literally fear the worst. 

It is currently Saturday night here, early Sunday morning. If you know about Etika's whereabouts, please contact the local authorities immediately.

Playing Zombie Mode on PUBG Mobile

I really love playing PUBG Mobile. And recently, I have been really enjoying the zombie mode inspired by Resident Evil. Currently, there are two Evo modes available in PUBG Mobile. The classic mode is Survive Til Dawn which was the original zombie mode for PUBG. The newest addition is Darkest Night.

As both can be fun, I truly love Survive Til Dawn. This is what I am playing at the moment. My record is 100 zombie kills although I am sure I can do better. Killing players is also fun in this mode. 

My current guns are the UMP9 (or Heckler and Koch UMP) and the AKM, which I am using in this particular match. And as you can see I am out of bullets for my AKM, which requires caliber 7.62 mm. Do you think the combat knife will save me? One thing is certain, the UMP9 is one of the most underrated guns to exist. At least, in my opinion. 

Tonight, I have a squad made up of players GrimCode, JayThePlumber, UrJustPractice and myself - Golpari. UrJustPractice died early on and GrimCode eventually lost to zombies. JayThePlumber is still alive, but seems to be quite a few meters away. Hopefully I can win this one, whether with this squad member or solo. 

If you haven't played PUBG, you truly need to. It's fun and takes you on quite a journey. Definitely one of the best games I have ever played on my phone.
