TLDR: An introduction to a series of ramblings

I have honestly been putting this off for way too long. Initially I was going to do these as I thought them up, and then I was going to do a “12 days of Xmas” type thing, but eventually I put it off until now. I have a thing I like to call “binge productivity syndrome” where I’ll go about not doing things for a while, then sit down one day and get a lot done. This is one of those days.

Welcome to TLDR

You may/may not remember me from this very blog a little over a year ago, so I’ll start by re-introducing myself as “TheBlur”- a recent college graduate who lacks a title based on the fact that more than half a year after getting a degree, I’m still unemployed. I was never really active on this blog (at best I had a series based on my school funded [thanks for that] trip to “the motherland” of game development), but this is my attempt to rectify that problem and put some of my non-original opinions out there.
My plan (very specifically for this series at least) is to update at least once every 2 days with an opinion piece of my stance on things video game related (as much as I wish I could rant about everything, I’ll try to stay on topic and leave out hilarious pictures of Col Gaddafi) . Some of these might come off as “preachy” and others a tad “trolly” but most of them will probably be along the lines of “does this really matter?”

The answer is probably not, but this site has given me a soap box and for once in a very long time, I’m going to use it.
Some of the upcoming pieces (if you can call them that) include- Angry Birds, the Brawl Community, Why Business Majors suck, Game Theorists, Nestalgia (not the game, the feeling), and a few other hot issues and complaints about the game industry that I not only admire, but aspire to join.

So sit back, comment, troll, and enjoy the first of the set- Why GDC isn’t for You (as soon as I finish the shoops).
