All About Teivan
Here are my thoughts, rants, and so on. Its really not that relevant to anything, but every now and then I like to speak my piece.
12Jul 11I've always wondered what I'd say when it was time for me to send one of these emails when I leave GameSpot. Do I say a lot or just a little? Serious or funny? I'd really like to be funny, but considering that very few people laugh at my jokes in Games Chat, that's probably be a bad idea. I'm known for liking to talk but it seems that all that is left to say is "So long, and thanks for all the fish..."
Take care and I'll see you around the interwebs,
p.s. My last full day in the office is Thursday July 14th, 2011
In case you've been wondering what I've been working on for the last 3 months or so...http://fuse.gamespot.com/is now unofficially open beta (real/official announcement coming soon).
You may have noticed that I haven't been very active lately in the GameSpot community. Okay, maybe "lately" is a stretch, how about "in a long time?" And maybe you noticed that 12 months ago and totally forgot I existed by now... Whatever the case may be, I'm kicking off one of my 2011 goals a month early.
For 2011, one of my goals is to blog on GameSpot at least once a month. I have no idea whether or not this will actually happen beyond the first month or two. I've kind of become a fan of the hourly or daily mind dump in 140 characters or less. But I'm also finding that it is hard to communicate something effectively in such a small amount of words/time. So this experiment will be to try both and see what happens.
So where have I been? I don't really know. Hopefully living my life. I have a 2.5yr old boy & a loving wife who have been (appropriately & deservingly) the focus of my attention for the last year or two. And after those two there's the usual hodgepodge of work, health, friends, hobbies, etc. that take up your time. It all adds up to not enough time (and sleep) so I cut back quite a bit. The chaos of a new family member has now become more familiar and routine so you should start seeing more of me. At the very least, I'll be posting in this blog now & again.
It feels really weird to sum up the last 2 years like that. The programmer brain in me wants to throw together a quick bullet list of the highlights but I don't want to just list them out. There's the usual good and bad, happy and sad, solid and plaid.
I hope you all have been well and I'm looking forward to being more active with the community again.
My Recent Reviews
Some people just don't have opinions. Like Teivan.
Teivan does not have any recent activity. What a slacker! Maybe you should send Teivan a private message and ask, "Where are you hiding?"
