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.

I've had a few articles promoted on the front page... Check them out if you want. (Thanks, Hamza! :D)
It looks like a bunch of American citizens are trying to get the attention of the U.S. government, hoping to have them ban the use of region locking in a bunch of different forms of electronic media. Games, movies, software and others are all included in this petition.
While I don't think it'll actually pass (at least, not so easily), this is fantastic news. There's literally NO POINT to region locking games. People may argue that it helps companies to better keep track of their sales in a particular region, but I say that all it does is get people to either hack their hardware (which shouldn't be necessary at all) or pirate games. This would be good for everyone involved.
