Deep Breath.... The Future is....

In my last blog I wrote about just where my mindset was moments after watching Sony's press conference.† Days have passed that seem like seconds, and we've had "leaked" interviews along with tiny details that will† help to give a snippet of...

 
 
 
 

The "NEW" Console Generation

I imagine the vast majority of people will see this title and do one of two things, either sigh or get angry for no apparent reason because of quotation marks. A snippet of background.... I am a PC gamer, owned a PS3 (7 of them, long story...

Games as Escape vs. Release

About nabokovfan87one of us since 4:47 PM on 06.12.2009

Hey everyone,

I am a long time gamer, I mostly play PC stuff now since my 7th ps3 was stolen (no, not a joke, it is a ridiculously long story I will write sometime). I took up listening to podcasts and making one myself (https://www.damnitslam.com). I spend an immense amount of time just checking out what is going on in the hardware world, I have built 2 pcs, working on a third (first liquid cooled machine), and am about to graduate as a computer engineer.

You may ask yourself what else I enjoy, well... not a lot of time goes into much else. I watch football on sundays and run a fantasy league, watch hockey when my team ends up making the playoffs, and I check in on my favorite player from time to time (username hint hint... Evgeni Nabokov).

If there is anything else you want to know heat over to my podcast site and click on "about us", or hit up the CBlog, I am sure I will answer mostly anything you all would like to know.

Thanks!
