Well this is certainly new.

Well hey there everyone!

I figured I'd finally go about getting one of these. I've kind of always wanted somewhere to write about what I'm passionate about, and to receive opinons back on what I though; seems like this is definitely the place to try it out.

A headsup to Doomsday Forte for introducing me to this website. You guys may want to check out his existing posts if you already haven't!

Well, I know this is a bit empty right now, but I'll get to work on this as soon as I get home. Also, so that you know what to expect, I'm quite a.. varied gamer. I'm hugely in to Japanese culture, gaming, and anything else that they have to throw at me, so you can expect that I'll write about various games coming from there. As well as this, I'm also into a huge variety of games, ranging from Racing, to Platformer, to RPG, to Shooter, and many more. The only genre that I typically dislike is Sports. Sure, if someone releases a fun one I'll play it, but I'm not into your FIFA or Madden stuff.

So, about myself. I'm currently a sixth form student in the UK, in my 13th year of education and I've had just about enough of it. I've had a constant obsession with Japan and everything around it from the first time I watched Pok�mon as a kid, and lucky me, as of recent I started learning how to speak Japanese (or moonspeak, wappy, whatever you wanna call it), and even got to visit the country to see just how bizzare it is for myself. Other than Japan, I'm an avid gamer and have been ever since I played on my parents Sega Megadrive as a child, and I now aspire to be a highly successful Video Games Programmer, and will be attending university to learn all about it next year; give me a shout if you're going to Bolton Uni! I'll be one of the many nerds with too much on his plate in terms of gaming.

Anyway, I hope this all goes well and doesn't die like any of my previous blogs! I'll pad this thing out a bit tonight, and look forward to hearing from anyone that stumbles across here!

About Awesomeistone of us since 3:38 AM on 05.05.2009

My name is Grant. I go by many other aliases, such as Dirtster, and Raggak being my most popular ones, but decided it was time for a change, and came up with Awesomeist. Why? Because I generally wanted a name that was awesome.

I live in the UK, currently 20, and I'm a student at the University of Bolton, learning how to program videogames. It's pretty fun.

I'm currently with my amazing girlfriend Shauni, and we've been together since September 24th 2006, and I've never looked back on my life since that day, making the moment I'm writing this 4 years and 6 months together. She completes my life, and I wouldn't have it any other way!

I've been amazed by videogames since I was a young child. My first gaming experiences were various games on the Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, such as Rocket Knight Adventures, Sonic 1~3 & Knuckles, and Streets of Rage. I then grew through video games, getting a PSX (illegally chipped, haha), and borrowing an N64 on occasions to keep my pallete wide. So, whilst I have not been around since gaming started, I've definitely seen a lot go past.

I also have a great love of Japan, and I have done ever since I watched my first episode of Pok�mon as a child. I became obsessed and hungry to learn more about the country and its ways, and I have recently done so by learning the Japanese language at a GCSE level, and visiting Japan for a total of 10 days, seeing Tokyo, Owakudani, and Kyoto. I would definitely go again, and recommend that anyone who hasn't gone, does. I shall be returning again one day, but when will depend on how my life goes from now on. You'll most likely see my love of Japan seep through in my blog entries.

Now, as for where I am at the moment in gaming? I own the following consoles (including ones I share with my Girlfriend): Playstation 3, Playstation 2, Playstation Portable, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS Lite, and XBox 360. I have owned other consoles before hand, such as: Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Gameboy Original, Gameboy Advance, DS Original, and Playstation 1.

Whilst I do play a huge variety of genres, the type that I typically focus on are as follows; Japanese RPG, Strategy, Shooter, Action, Music, and Racing. I play most other genres as well, but the only genre I tend to avoid is Sports, purely because it doesn't interest me.

And finally, what games am I currently playing? I can't be bothered to write this out because it changes too often. I do have a lot more games, but I focus on these right now.

If you want to contact me at all, leave me a message on this blog, or contact me by my XBox Gamertag: Raggak, my Steam: Awesomeist or my PSN: Awesomeist. Whilst I do have a Wii, I'm currently not using it.
