Been around the block a bit. Slowly getting back into the games. Some people know me, actually, very very few know me.
Gaming since I was a kid. As I aged, found out I can write a bit better then the other kids. Developed the craft and skill. Never developed the skill into a fine espresso. Nay, it more like a really clear gas station cup of joe. Swill, at best. I just like writing, talking, discussing. Hence my attendance to this particular blog.
I rarely have time to play games, so when I do I tend to play shorter games or games that I can pick up and go. I have a particular inclination toward Left 4 Dead 2.
Currently I only game on my PC. Thank god for Steam. I have a 360 but, it collects more dust then my filing cabinet.
Hobbies? Writing, gym, games (naturally), movies, and music.
Interests? Literally anything?
Dream birthday plan? Movie theater Super Smash Bros Brawl tourney, after I've sat on a patio for 3 hours drinking beer, only to later go to a hotel with my other half to enjoy her company whilst I sip a Merlot and dine on a rare steak. Later, after enjoying her body, I would like to find a place to watch the sunrise. Stare at the sun break the dark, and shine a light on another year.
I like writing, if you haven't noticed.
I frequent the gym because Dorian Yates at his prime is what I would like to achieve, physically.
I cook. Okay, I TRY to cook, not great, decent. Alright, I burnt milk. Twice.
Movies and music and reading all fall into things I enjoy as well. Primarily because art in any form I believe can bring the "art" out of you, it just depends on what it brings out. Go listen to something that makes you angry and then write a fight scene for a movie. You'll write far more eloquently than if you were to listen to Collie Budz's "Herbs Come Around"
Movies can make you view the world differently. Least that's my opinion on it. Heck, they can even teach you different techniques to character development. Look at the characters out of Joss Wheadon's Firefly and the characters out of Final Fantasy IX. They aren't the exact same characters, god no, but the idea of a character supposed to be acting one way, all of a sudden is the complete opposite after you get to know them. Brilliant.
Reading is simply sharpening your pen. “My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer and I have my mind...and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge. That’s why I read so much Jon Snow.” - Tyrion Lannister
So I used to come around these parts years ago, I left due to life interfering with enjoyment. Girlfriend, family, work, career, school. I'm a bit of a workaholic so I stopped doing what I enjoy, games, to focus on career and the like. Well now I'm rather comfortable in my career and now I'd like to play some games. Apart of that is this little corner of the web.
Not sure what to put in an intro so lets fire off some facts and get through all that jazz. I'm a mechanic by trade fixing cars, I absolutely hate cars but I see it at a job/career nothing else, I live in Canada (specifically within the Greater Toronto Area), I'm Tamil from Sri Lanka, I prefer PC gaming over anything else, I lurk (I lurk like a champ), I tend to have a hard shell but gooey inside, I've been with my other half for 4 and a half years, I will always be bored, I'm "healthy" (smoke cigarettes, drink twice a week, gym every other day, 8 hours of sleep, eat every 2 hours), I was born and raised a Roman Catholic converted to Buddhism after I read the Bible for the third time and then gave up Buddhism for Agnostic because of science (you monster), I like my beer gold with bubbles and my women to be talkative.
I listen to music pretty much constantly. Even in sleep. Actually I think music is extremely important to the "soul". As such I dowse myself in as much music as possible. As such, the above is an example of one genre, the below is some more examples;
I like my electronic music
Some days are a bit dated
Others remind me of Lisa Simpson
While on the other hand some of it is a bit experimental
As for music I could go on forever, I have about 200GBs of music in my computer and my collection grows each month. Also, I do like my Super Eurobeat. Pamela just has a way to send chills down your body when you floor the gas the upheaval sends you across the road sideways.
I do like my anime as some of you might have been able to tell. I'm not as well versed in anime as I'd like to be, but I do love FMA both original series and Brotherhood.
Movies? Oh dear lord I love my movies. I still have alot of movies to watch, older ones particularly, like Godfather 3, Borat, or Enter the Dragon. Yeah I know I have never watched Enter the Dragon, I'll get to it I swear.
TV? Buh, pretty much what every one else is watching. [i]Game of Thrones, Dexter, The Walking Dead.
[/i]Games? The three games that made the biggest impact on my life are, Final Fantasy 7, Chrono Trigger, and Grandia. So much so I'm currently designing a tattoo with my other half (she's a graphic designer) that incorporates all three and I'm putting it on my left shoulder cap. It's going to be a stone wall with half a circle and the number "1" on it. Once I draw it I'll make a whole blog post about it.
I'm not sure where else to take this introduction. I'm just writing for writing's sake. Speaking because I can. Write because I can write. Actually, I know exactly why I'm writing so much, I don't want to go to the gym. It's shoulders day today and I'm already tired as hell from work. Time to get the hype music on.
Add me to Steam, all the info is there on the side, I'll see y'all around the bend.
