    Name -Luis
    Located -Houston, Tx
    For a living - I work for my familyscleaning buisness we clean houses, schools, and offices. They also run a mini restaurant inside a gas station so I pitch in with busy work when we don't have a job in the cleaning buisness
    Non-gaming Hobbys - Watching wrestling love it and not just WWE stuff been watching it since I was a kid. Music I listen to all sorts of genres but Hip Hop is my favorite. Watching sports occassionally I'll get wrapped up watching various sporting events from boxing, ufc, soccer, football etc but I'm not super into them.
    Gaming Historical facts - The earliest gaming memorys I have are when I was very young and lived in Mexico. My grandmother owned a convience story which was ran out of the house we lived in. She would have some arcade cabinets outside the store and I would play as much as I could. I think some of the games were Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede etc the classics. One of my first consoles I ever played was a Atari but not sure which one. Since all I can remember is a particular cartidge that was bootleg filled with lots of games. That was pretty much the only way to get new games the old fashion bootleg way. From there when I moved to the USA it was history my first consoles was a NES, followed by SNES, Genesis. I would write more but it would take up to much space haha.
    Firm believer that - Video Games are meant to be fun not to hurt others by verbally bashing someone or threats. Be kind to one another and if someone isn't then just ignore them.

  • @Civil-Warlord
    If I stay inside and turn the AC up way too high, I can pretend I'm somewhere a lot more pleasant.

  • Don't feel like filling out that form, so I'm just going to say:

    Hi, hola, greetings, salutations, my name is SD AKA Big Boom AKA I_Make_Big_Boom, and I'm excited to be here yadda, yadda.

  • You may call me "Dark Hazel Coconut" I'm a rogue warrior and I always work alone. I grew up in the streets of Erpot, this is where I learned all my fighting techniques and stances. I am trained in 900+ forms of martial arts, and I wear my trusty "Katana-axe" (Katana means sword in Japanese).
    I play video games to hone my fighting skills in the real life battlefield, my favourite game is Half-life 2 because it improved my real life jumping by 60%
    My Twitter combat updates can be found Here
    I am a firm believer that Half-Life 3 is hidden in a jungle somewhere, waiting to be found.

    Sorry for joking around so much, Half-life 2 is the best though.
    Love you guys!

    Name - Amanda

    Located - In Japan, not in Tokyo and prefer it that way (although do visit for some shopping trips every now and then).

    For a living I - try to teach some kids English but the Japanese English teaching system can be such a mess so I just do my best to get them to learn some English phrases that can be used in real life. After I move on, the dream of dreams would be to eventually become a localizer for Japanese games but I'd honestly be ok with becoming a tour guide/travel agent to help out Japanese tourist who visit America.

    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - pottery, reading, watching MLB, art history nerd, traveling, stalking around museums, and studying languages (Japanese for now but already have some Korean books to start learning that language soon).

    Gaming Historical facts - I got into gaming when i was three years old because my mom used to work days and my dad would work nights which left him alone with me during the sunlight hours. He bought a NES so that he could entertain the both of us (him playing and me watching). He first used to give me an unplugged controller while he played so I would think that I was the one beating up Bowser on the TV. Apparently one day I figured out what he was doing so I cried until he let me actually play on my own and I've been gaming ever since.

    Firm believer that - Leaks suck so much what's wrong with finding things out about games after they come out/annouced? Knowing everything before even playing a game/seeing a brand new trailer is the wooooooorst.

    Champion of - sarcasm

  • Name - Zack
    Located - Canada
    For a living I - am a graduate student
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - I read a lot, write some, draw a bit, enjoy most other forms of gaming too (board games, tabletop rpgs, miniature wargames).
    Gaming Historical facts - My parents actually got me into gaming, they were gamers first. My mother played Shining in the Darkness for her entire pregnancy with me. We were a Sega family until my older brother and I found an NES at a garage sale and then my dad bought us a SNES and later an N64. I have owned every console from a major publisher at some point. I mostly play RPGs but I don't restrict myself by genre.

  • Name - Jon
    Located - Farmington, Michigan
    For a living I - I am a stay at home dad for my 14 month old daughter.
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Reading, writing and board games.
    Gaming Historical facts - There is more than enough to fill a book, as I have been gaming for over 30 years, with the Atari 2600 being my first console and an Apple IIGS as my first computer. Favorite systems include the Sega Saturn, of which I have a collection that includes, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragon Force, Saturn Bomberman, Burning Rangers, Magic Knight Rayearth and soooooo much more. I also love the Sega Dreamcast and Sega CD, as well as everything Nintendo. I am a retro collector, but that does not keep me from loving modern games of the current generation.
    Firm believer that - There is no need for negativity on the internet. We find entertainment in being judgemental and harsh towards everyone around us. We should be able to enjoy games with impunity and encourage others to enjoy games. It is alright to not like something, but it is wrong to tell someone they are wrong for liking it. Games are meant to be fun, so treat them as such.
    Champion of - Retro game collecting and showing the good in almost every game, even the cheesy FMV games of the 1990's.
