About
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.

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 about my BBS distraction is that the only way I can play it is by borrowing my boyfriend's PSP whenever we have some idle time together. The bad thing is that the longer I spend playing other games and not completing KH2, the longer it will be before I can get back to Arkham Asylum!

The reason I opted to focus on KH2 is that Batman is much easier to drop for a while and swing back into later, while the other...not so much. I'm about 30 hours in, and I think that puts me about halfway. Since I want to have full completion of the game, including beating Sephiroth, I think I set my total time to what, about 64 hours? I suppose I'm not doing all that bad!

For a five year old game, I think KH2 holds up really well. I can't give it TOO MANY props, because really, Prince of Sands of Time really surprised me wit

For a five year old game, I think KH2 holds up really well. I can't give it TOO MANY props, because really, Prince of Persia: Sands of Time really surprised me with how great it looked for being a much older game on the PS2. Another thing is, I've gotten used to PS3 and HD and the works, so it feels like such a crazy downgrade every time I go back to a PS2 game.

I need to be strong, though. Somehow I will get through this game, so I can move on to bigger and better things! I gotta lay off the Hello Kitty Online, and give Fairy Tail a break so I could blow through KH2  as quickly as possible.

Speaking of Fairy Tail, I know this isn't the anime forum, but are any of you watching or reading that? I am in love with that show, dude. So much in love, in fact, that in a couple weeks you'll start seeing the summaries on Jtor's Fighting Friday, courtesy me! Semi-game related, since it DID come from a game, I'm also writing up the weekly summary for Togainu no Chi. Ok, so maybe most of you guys wouldn't be caught dead playing a BL game, but it was open, so I grabbed it. So far, it's lots of blood and fighting. And men. Awwww yeah. /end shameless plug!

Anyway, more later on my adventures in the Kingdom Hearts series, and hopefully I'll be back to Batman within the next few weeks!

Cheers.
