Crystal is a writer for Gaming Bus and a graduate student in applied psychology. She 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. Her favorite franchises are Zelda, Team Fortress, Metroid, Ace Attorney, Left 4 Dead, Final Fantasy and Pokemon, though she likes to branch out into anything can hold her interest. She manages her own website, Mercury Ice, and spends most of her time reading, doing research, exercising and playing video games. She has a boyfriend that she's been dating for roughly two years and is quite content with her life at this moment.
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 and Pokemon, 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!
