Hey, everyone! =)
As most of my friends may have noticed already, I'm not visiting GameSpot ultimately since the beginning of this year (2010). The reasons for this are few yet important ones:
- I'm in love. =) The relationship I always wanted finally happened and I'm using most of my free time to give her all the attention she deserves, exactly in the way she does about me.
- I have now two jobs. I'm still a computer science teacher and recently I became a digitizer after being approved in the last public contest. So, even though I'm enjoying a lot my new life, time is a bit limited right now.
- Since the last two years, gaming became more a way to spend my free time than really enjoying the game in its essence. This activity in my life became pointless, because I really miss the old games and the old times, when LAN parties and fun were the most important things when gaming. I didn't fit in the new philosophy about games that are being released ultimately; I mean, all this on-line stuff, with achievements, monthly fee, direct 2 drive installers, multiplayer-only modes, surreal hardware requirements etc. I was quite impressed with the release of Worms Reloaded, because now I can experience something suitably old-school, but remakes aren't as great as new ideas.
- I'm still in the university and now I have my final project to idealize and create, which must be a software that manipulates information in databases; not to mention all the documentation behind the application, which is extensive and really a demanding work.
I would like to say that I'll miss writting those lengthy reviews, working on videos (which I created especially for GameSpot, since I didn't upload them to any other website), taking screenshots, exploring every piece of my favorite games and posting all that stuff in my profile's blog. It's a hard and inevitable decision I took recently, but people changes, life changes. I'm still gaming, but not like before. It's just a casual activity, not a "serious hobby" like it used to be.
Anyway, if you're curious, I'm playing Worms Reloaded when it's possible. =) Nice game. Well done, Team 17!

I love the GameSpot community and I'll really miss all of my friends here, especially the following ones: Azghouls, bowlingotter, Cunhao, dn3datomiced, dragonps, geoffuk-123,Guuthulhu, jepsen1977, martianrobot, Meat_Bag, molocoplus, nightharvest, nutcrackr, Sorvos and topsemag55.
If any of you guys from GameSpot want to talk with me, I'll always be reading my e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org). Don't worry, this is my only e-mail since 2002 and I'll always use it. If you decide to add me, don't forget to introduce yourself, because, sometimes, I simply don't remember all the names from the Internet. =)
See ya and keep gaming! =)
