I found my PSP at long last!

Between the site upgrade/mishaps/downgrade and being productive (or something) - oh yeah, and forgetting my password on Dtoid (cause I'm a noob), I haven't had much of a chance to post on here as of late. I suppose that sho...

 


The gamer ADD is setting in slowly

I've been slowly but surely moving along in Kingdom II, but as always as I get more and more invovled with a game, I become more easily distracted! The culprit this time is Kingdom Birth By Sleep. The good thing ab...

 


My progess and impressions: KHII Style

So I've been playing Kingdom Hearts II for maybe a week or so now, and I am a good 12 hours and 24 minutes into the game (last I checked). This is huge, I didn't think I'd actually get past the first annoying hump of the game...

 


DCGG: Tutorials Rant

If there's one thing that really turns me off to certain games - without fail - is a bad tutorial. I don't even mean bad in the sense that it doesn't explain the mechanics properly, I mean bad like, I don't want to friggen kn...

 


DCGG: Moving on (short post)

As a quick note, that DCGG is a shortened version of my series title "Diary of the Casual Girl Gamer". It looks nicer than typing out the entire thing, and the series will change soon - I'll explain why. So I finally got aro...

 


Idle Time Idly Spent

In today’s world, unless you’re doing it on purpose, idle time is generally “wasted” time. Most “productive” members of society use would-be idle time to read the paper, phone a friend, anything; as long as it’s not a whole l...

 



Grinding IRL.

Changes can be good sometimes. I've gone from being a total loser bum with no job or much of anything to do, to part time job + internship (maybe even 2 internships) and exericising again. With all the time I have now (oppose...

 


Random Awesomeness: Tonberry Style.

There was once a lonely Tonberry. He's the quiet type; doesn't talk much. He doesn't even have a name. All he did all day was sit around with his lantern and knife, wondering when he'd ever make a friend. Stabbing things in...

 


A Belated Intro of the one and only me.

So this isn’t my first post, but I quickly found out that introducing myself properly is more important than I initially thought. I am here as living proof that spontaneous combustion will not occur if you post a story on DTo...

 



About Kristina Pinoone of us since 6:41 PM on 07.24.2010

My name is Kristina and I love my boyfriend <3.

Wait, that's not interesting yet. Second try. I'm female, I play games.

Shit, that's still not that interesting.



Let's see... I'm into photography and I'm an aspiring travel journalist. For now, I'm trying to get my name out there in other fields that I can write about..like movies and games. I consider myself more of a casual gamer, but I am an opinionated casual gamer. My favorite kinds of games are RPGs or puzzle games (like Final Fantasy serie, Monkey Island games (or Zakk and Wiki), Prince of Persia, you know...that kind of stuff). I also get really excited when I get to beta test. I got really excited when I beta tested Hello Kitty Online. Hey, don't look at me like that.

I now currently write news articles and such for Tomopop! Yaaaay.

I've recently participated in StarCraft II beta test and currently test FFXIV. Although, I'm not supposed to tell you that. I think I'll be OK, though.

I'll be blogging, giving you the casual girl gamer point of view whenever I have something to share. I might make a few posts here and there about how awesome my boyfriend is. Did I mention he's awesome? You might know him..he writes for you, you know. Yeah, that guy. Pedro <3

With a little bit of luck, (and a whole lot of blood and sweat) you'll see my name around more.

I listen to Pandora radio while I work. (work = editing photos, writing and my morning office drudgery)

I love zombie games, mostly because I think they're effing hilarious.
