OK, going to make some blogs now.
So, this blog is mostly going to be about games, gamers, and gaming. It is unlikely to feature gametes, gamelans, or Gaffer Gamgee - although it's possible that it will. I may also use it to recount amusing anecdotes or rant about things that irritate me. I will try to be witty but will probably just regress into terrible puns.
I don't know who will read this or why they would want to. As such, I am likely to include swears, because I appreciate the richness of language they enable. I'm also very pleased with myself for how that last sentence turned out, unlike this one which took me three rewrites.
I am mostly a PC gamer, although I also play some xbox, wii, card and board games. We have a couple of Nintendo GBA SP's and my wife has a PSP, but we haven't touched them in a few years. On the PC, I play a lot of World of Warcraft with a guild that I'm currently leading, and also various other games of various genres - FPS, RTS, turn-based, TLA, RPG, adventure, puzzle, casual, and many of the other kinds too. I may also write about games my wife is playing - she plays WoW and some other PC games but tends to prefer the xbox. I have hooked up an xbox controller to her PC, where it has been gathering dust for several months now.
What qualifies me to write this? I have a google account, that's what. It's really not hard to get a blog started. Why should you read this or value my opinion? Well, I hope you find my writing style at least a little bit entertaining. As for my gaming credentials, the first game I remember playing was Enchanted Scepters, which was released in 1984. Now, I'm pretty sure I wasn't actually PLAYING it then, since I was not doing a whole lot other than eating and sleeping for much of that year. But the point is, I've been wasting my life pushing buttons to make pixels move for a long time.
And that's the first post.
