Whats the difference between "compulsory" and "mandatory"?

Oh hey guize I'm new I like gaems and play the fun ones like halo and CoD which is the best one easy.  I hope I like tacos! I want to meet you but I know like trolls klolz hopefully your fun!!! -Me

That was just my impression of Niero.  Well, one impression anyway *ahem* let's move on.

So this is my "obligatory" first blog post.  I don't really actually like Halo or CoD that much (although I have been caught playing them on occasion); I'm more into a mixture of unique and interesting games.

Truthfully, I'll play anything if it's good and I have a three point criteria to determine the games I try and spend time with:

1) The game has to be intelligent or at least vaguely stimulating.  This could be a lot of games but you'd be surprised how many this excludes.

2) The game has to have panache.  Typically this means a unique audio, visual, or gameplay aesthetic.  Some of my favorites: SMT III: Nocturne, Unlimited SaGa, Lumines, Binding of Isaac...  All of which have that certain something.

3) The game must have either a difficulty curve which ramps; or becomes liquid through human interaction.  Simply put: I don't like playing the same forever.  Ether give me depth or give me solid multiplayer.  I like to chew so it better have meat on it.

There are some debatable exceptions though and it is worth noting I tend to stick with games that make me particularly angry.  So you might see my 400+ hours into Dota 2 or 200+ hours into Battlefield 3 when viewing my library.

Even though I'm the typical age of most game buyers these days, I still feel like I'm older then most.  I'm always interested in finding more people to play with but finding people who stick with it and can have fun winning or losing are few and far between.  If you're one of those people, hit me up and I'm sure we can have a good time together.

Anypoo, what the description says on the side is true: I am a professional music producer...

But don't tell my family!  God, if they knew...

Seriously though I do love and make music.  I don't feel at a professional level but my music does sell so I can't say that still a hobbyist, can I?  You can check my soundcloud or youtube if you're interested.  Obviously video games have a lot of involvement on my music.

When I'm not making music, or selling various crap on Amazon, I'm playing games.  I also happen to like writing (and happened to spend the last 3 years working as an English teacher) so let's see if we can't something interesting down on the page!

If you read all the crap I just typed; thanks.  If you just skimmed down to here; just hit the fap button and no one will know...

EDIT:  I realize there's a few missing words and otherwise confusing sentences here.  It's currently 5:31am and I'm too tired to fix them :/

Hope you 4give mai bad typn guize!
