A "Gamer" Identity Crisis

So I finally beat Portal. Not the second one, mind you, but the first. The one that came out over 3 years ago. The one Iíd been putting off finishing for over a year now. Even though I owned a copy of the Orange Box, I just ...

Go Ahead, Square Enix, Make My Life

So I noticed it's been months since I posted anything. Sadly, nothing too much has changed with my life. I'm nearing the end of the class portion of my Ph. D and will be starting on writing my dissertation in earnest. Additio...

About Studakrisone of us since 9:50 AM on 01.20.2010

Been playing games since I was a kid. Mainly portables until recently. Have a PS3, Wii, DS, Mac and own games for all formats. Into all genres, but mainly JRPGs, fighting, and party games. Don't get to play as much as I'd like, but I can throw down with the best of them. Grad school is a huge time sink.

Currently playing:

PS3- Mass Effect 2
Wii- Waiting for Skyward Sword
DS- Dragon Quest IX
Mac- Papers for class
iPhone- Angry Birds
