After a year or so of following the crowd here, I think it's high time I get the formalities out of the way and introduce myself to the community! And what better way to do that than divulge random tidbits of knowledge to the internet? I certainly don't know any. And away we go...
That's me! And Satan, in karate-kicking feline form.
I'm Chesz, I'm 20 years old and have been a somewhat rabid game fan for as long as I can remember. It's always been difficult finding people that sympathize and share my passion, so I'm right glad I found this place!
You probably noticed the somewhat garish header image by now. I'm sorry. I promise once I come across a copy of Photoshop I'll whip something up a little more proper. That used to be my sig when I played Call of Duty 2 competitively for The Retro Gamers. I was one of the clan founders and leader of our Call of Duty 2 division for about 2 years, I think. Drama and bullshit finally caught up with us and led to our disbandment, but I still hear from the guys once in a while. It was a good run, for sure.
I am all about adventure games. Monkey Island is the game I credit with starting my love affair with PC gaming. I was in tears when they announced Tales and Secret Special Edition. True to my word, I bought every edition of the game available, and made my very first collectible purchase, in the Guybrush vs. LeChuck statue. If you haven't seen it, you should definitely check it out.
Even if it is slightly unfaithful to the story.
With the death of all the local arcades here, I lost one of my guiltiest of gaming pleasures. Public DDR. It's not so hard to explain, but might be to understand if you've never had the experience. The lights, entrancing in their patterns, the music just loud enough to overcome the ambient noises of the fighting streets and dead houses, the crowd of awed onlookers, and the gentle hum of the box fan blowing the sweat from your brow. Those were the good old days. Now, it's pretty much a few rounds at home on StepMania with the old AfterBurner pad.
Well, I should probably wrap up before I start to ramble...further...have a gander at my collections to the right, and if anyone wants to throw down in some BF1943 or just about any PC game, hit me up sometime! Gamertag, PSN ID, Steam ID, all the same thing: FatherChesz. Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for my next exciting blog: My Ghetto DDR setup!
