I am sort of an old school gamer. I don't play much in the land of 3d, and honestly polygons confuse and scare me. Seriously, though, I love PC games of the 80's and 90's, the Sega, and the Super Nintendo. I still love a lot more of the 2600 titles than I would like to admit, and I can't get over games like Enduro, or Frogger (Atari or Arcade). I have a deep and abiding love for the Sierra adventure games of the past, and am fascinated by just about any good story, in games, books, and even occassioanly movies. I try the newer games, but due to limitations, (legally blind) I tend to prefer games from before the day they got too real. I still watch and eat up the news of new games because I love the industry and the culture. So that's enough about my gaming habits. I don't have any of the present gen consoles because I am broke.. but a girl can dream.
In other news (ION) I dabble with Linux, am a total PC nerd girl, and dote on the cat (mentioned below). I read fantasy and Sci-fi, and have been to Kenya Africa, and 20 of the 50 states.
Missy (my mascot cat) is not the Turtlecat, but she is happy to fill the post of resident dust bunny and foot grabber. She also has agreed to pose as mascot because she approves of attention. She helps me play, mostly by reminding me it is time to stop and return to the real world.
