Ok first blog, very late to the party but thats how I work. So the premise of one of these is that I waffle on about a particular subject of interest to me and like minded people read it and think 'oh yeah I like this guy' thus creating an online prescense that for so long has eluded me (damn you rural area internet connection!) except here I'm more inclined to discuss games rather than last nights triathlon results.
But where are my manners.... already a paragraph in and you still have no idea why you should read this or just who the hell I am.
Well I'm Stephen (pronounced Steven, not steffan) and like you I play games, how exciting! infact I've played games for about 14 years from around the age of about 7 to date. I'm from the UK and although yes a youtube video is seen by more people these days I like writing stuff and so wish to embark on a journey through games in the text format.
A brief gaming history: from the age of 7 I had my own PC and a shared PS1. I can still vividly remember watching my step dad get frustrated with the original gran turismo to this date (maybe more on that another time) then 3 years later the PS2 released and my old friend the PC got too old to handle games and my paper round didn't cover upgrade costs so I henceforth became a 'console gamer'. Progressing to an xbox and then an xbox 360 until the lovely age of 20 in which I found myself in employment and chose to reconnect with my childhood sweetheart the PC. (yes, your dealing with a HUGE nerd here) I then ditched the 360 and got myself a PS vita. That takes us to today.
So with the history lesson over heres the plan. This will be as weekly as I can make it and may eventually spill into youtube specials and I'm setting up a Twitter account as we speak (or as you read, or as I typed this, infact all of these statements are false. hmm..) and I plan to cover aspects in gaming I like, dislike and all the areas in between.
This doesn't count as this weeks part so without further delay I'm going to make an announcement (or an announcement of an announcement since this has become so popular) I'll tell you what I'm going to make my next entry about in the next paragraph (insert fuzzy pictures or 19 second long video here to induce curiosity and speculation)
so now you're all excited my first blog entry will be a look into my main obsession in gaming, levelling up. Be it Final Fantasy or Modern warfare 3 there is something undeniably satisfying about gaining that next level, so I'll be waffling about everything levelling.
Well to the one person left reading this thank you for your time you have gained +500 xp if you have any suggestions then please do comment (hopefully I'll have commenting enabled if not, fail!)
More coming this week!
