But Chris and I really hit it off at the onset and it was fun. We celebrated once we completed the campaign like we won a championship. It was a nice accomplishment.”

Chris the blogger was also happy with the experience. “I usually play campaigns by myself in my boxer briefs and overload on carbs (pizza, fast food, etc.) while chugging energy drinks,” he said. “It was nice to have Charley alongside me as I traversed ‘The Lands Between.’ We got to know each other quite intimately and connected on a deeper level.
