Well, this is awkward.
It's been a long time...a very, very long time since I posted that last blog. So much has happened and changed since then. I spend a long while last night just looking through my old blog posts noting how my writing changed as I joined this avid Gamespot community.
You know what? I miss it. I remember being excited when seeing certain users posted new blogs. I remember building some great relationships with other gamers online. I remember anticipating the next comment my blog would (ever-so-hopefully) get. I remember the unions I joined, the conversations I participated in, and the absolute blast I had with this community.
And, in remembering all of that, I note how much this website has changed. It's made it so much easier to connect and contact other users, to share your ideas, and to become someone of note in this ever-changing Gamespot community. Something that took time and effort a mere 5 years ago (when my membership started), takes so much less of both.
I haven't disappeared off the map completely, I comment on news stories regularly (mostly because some people are really, really,reallymisinformed or biased and I feel that I must blow a gigantic hole in their argument).
For those of you seeing this blog and remembering who I am, I'll give you a short update. The last blog I wrote was from three years ago, when I was a Sophomore in high school. If you do the math, that puts me in...college right now.
Right. Well, I'll give out some information on that. I decided to leave my home state of Illinois and now attend Penn State, double majoring in National Security and Cybersecurity as well as minoring in Arabic.
As far as gaming goes, I sold my Xbox360 and switched to PS3, a move that will forever go into my book of great decisions. I still have my Wii and play it every so often, but if I'm playing on a Nintendo system it's more than likely going to be the 3DS (which, by the way, I love to death).
I got a gaming laptop from my parents for graduation, so I'm regularly diving into the wonderful world that is PC gaming. Steam is kind of the best thing ever. I playedWorld of Warcraftfor a solid year and a half before I had to cancel my subscription (I wish I had more time to really dig intoMists of Pandaria, but alas, I did not) due to schoolwork. I'm often found playingLeague of Legendsbecause it'sawesome.I'm still a Final Fantasy fanboy, and I still thinkthe market is far too saturated with FPS games. Seriously. We've had enough.
So, on that note, I'll end this blog. I'll try to keep up regular posts...perhaps one every 2-5 days. I have ideas for the next few, but, as we all know, this gaming world is volatile and ever-changing, and there will always be something to talk about.
Hello Gamespot. I'm happy to be back.
