I want to blog on here more but I wasn't sure what I should blog about. I guess I'll start with who I am.
My name is Crystal. I started playing video games on Atari 2600, PC, and Super Nintendo and moved on to own a Playstation 2, Wii, and Nintendo DS, among others. Right now I'm saving up for a 360; yes I know the next gen is only a year or two away. But my boyfriend of two years lives several hours away and we won't get to see one another that much over the next few years, so I thought it'd be great for us to be able to do something together that doesn't require literally hundreds of dollars in gas money. Not that I wouldn't like to see him... I just want to be able to do things with him is all.
Anyway, favorite franchises are Zelda, Team Fortress, Metroid, Ace Attorney, Left 4 Dead, Final Fantasy
, though I like to branch out into anything can hold my interest. I've recently gotten hooked to Dungeon Defenders
, which is easily the best multiplayer tower defense game out there right now. I'm slowly getting into sports games, though I'm still not that big a fan of most of them.
Currently, I'm a graduate student in applied psychology. I plan on becoming a professor or something. I don't know. I kind of want to work for a non-profit as well, not sure. I manage my own website, Mercury Ice
, and spend most of my time reading, doing research, exercising and playing video games. I also write for a gaming website called Gaming Bus
, which aims to cut through the layers of fluff to bring readers relevant news, in-depth features and trustworthy reviews by being selective as to what we post and using transparency in how we work. I really like working there, and we're always looking for more writers, so if you think you'd like working there too, just drop me a line and I can tell you how to apply.
I guess that's really all you need to know about me. I'd love to make some friends on here, so please let me know if you're interested in that!
