Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a week-late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.
As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two-and-a-half. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.

It looks like Spirit Camera: The Cursed Memoir, that 3DS Fatal Frame spinoff that we learned about a while back, has been confirmed for a North American release. The most exciting thing about this is that it's actually being published by Nintendo, which is a surprise after the whole refusing to publish Fatal Frame: Mask of the Lunar Eclipse thing. The game will release in North America on April 13, 2012. On a Friday, appropriately enough.
Fatal Frame on the Wii is easily one of my favorite horror games that I've ever played, and so much love was put into the fan translation that it's hard to not appreciate the experience. I've been closely following news about this one, because you actually aim the 3DS like a camera, and the included "journal" makes the spirits show up in your own house. I'm absolutely ready to give myself nightmares for life.
