About
I am 31 and I'm getting old. I probably hate you. I run The Low(er) Tier also. We podcast, publish indies and are getting into development. I enjoy watching the weather channel and complaining about grass. I have two beautiful kids, a wife and am dealing with life and just trying to do my best with it all. My other interests (besides games) are: reading, hiking, playing with my kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various virus samples, stalking Smurfee, thinking about working out, itching my bare butthole and seeing how long I can go, without smelling my finger and Batman. I love old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze!

My favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days I'm a filthy game slut. I play it all, I love it all. I'm always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit me up on whatever you see I'm on. I've been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 5 years) and have only started getting involved the past couple years. You can find me lurking mainly in Cblogs and OH. I also do the weekend recaps in Cblogs and have started a podcast called Low(er) Tier. I love you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way.



I'm also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit me up, I'm always down to chat.

Since I received so few (usable) responses to the first time I posted this (don't worry folks, I have those few saved), I thought with all the new fish we have now, I'd post it again. I would really like to do this Community Chat, as it's a matter close to my heart. I may look like a white boi, but I'm actually (mostly) Mexican and Iranian. I've dealt with a lot of bullshit due to that in my life and so have a lot of my non-white friends. A lot of us feel let down by the lack (or stereotyping) of representation in the video game world. It's almost as if the industry only caters to suburban white kids and Japanese folks. So here we go again. I'll leave the original post below this (because I'm lazy), follow it's instructions and let's knock this one out of the park and get it front-paged.



Hello folks. Times for another Community Chat. This time the subject is: Look at the damn title, lazy ass. So what topics would you like to see discussed? What's your take on how different races are handled in gaming? How would you like to see them handled differently? Drop a comment below or a PM to me. I will compile all feedback and put together a discussion blog soon. If you want to remain anonymous PM me with your idea and a message stating that. These issues are important to a lot of us and I'd like to see them discussed and I hope I'm not alone.
