9Mar 12So here's me, Rachel, a 21 year old nurse who likes to game. It helps me wind down and relax and escape to another world that's not full of the sick. I am a female gamer and proud.
This post was inspired by one idiot who commented on my last blog, let's just say something that had no relation to the topic but what he wanted me to do to him.
I have been a user of Gamespot for about 4 years now but it took me a while to actually create a user account but I felt like I was missing out on the social side of gaming and finding others like me who enjoy it and are passionate about it. I love going on the forums, even the off topic discussions and meeting new people, reading their opinions and it angers me that there are some people in the world who want to take this from me. Gaming is my little haven from the world and some idiot tried to ruin that.
I've always been a tom boy, having more guy friends then girls and friends of mine say that it's 'cool' having a friend that games who's a girl.
I don't come on Gamespot to meet people to date. If I wanted to, I'd use a dating site. To coin a phrase used by my guy friends, though gaming websites can be a 'sausage fest' it doesn't mean because I am a woman, I want that sort of attention. I don't game for attention, I do it because I enjoy it.
28Feb 12After saying for years I'm a thoroughbred Sony gal, I'm now debating getting an Xbox. The main reason for my back-stabbing to Sony? The Kinect. I want to play Just Dance and Dance Central to get fit and unlike buying a treadmill for the house and then using it to hang clothes on when I tire of it at least I can use the Xbox for other things like Fable and Alan Wake. So now I've explained myself. But I still refuse to pay for the online account as I wouldn't use it and paying for the service is one of my big complaints about the Xbox. Well that and the ridiculously cumbersome controller.
So ha Microsoft, you haven't really won, one point to me (regardless of the fact I will be buying something off you).
8Feb 12So I was watching the Gamspot bluffers guide to Final Fantasyand was firstly pleased to see that Danny, like myself hasn't actually played any of them. For me this was because I was actually not even born when the series started. I can remember being about 8 when 9 was released (I'm 21 now) and seeing it in the shops but when it was a toss up between buying that at a slightly lower price (having not played anything like that before) and Crash Team Racing, which was just out and loved the other Crash games, so to my young self the choice was obvious. I was thinking about old games and today after watching that I might actually dig out my PS1 games and have a go. There are some I never did actually complete due my exceptionally short attention span which was even worse when I was younger.
I mean Crash 2:Cortex Strikes Back was a great game of the time if not slightly ridiculous in general with the mask that everyone I knew who played it refer to as 'UGA BUGA', you know that one
And the concept of apples for health, I mean, that's just genius! Well eating 100 apples gave you an extra life, imagine if that worked in real life!
I also miss the old skateboarding games. I'm not going as far back now but Tony Hawks American Wasteland on PS2 was immense. I loved that game and spent hours getting ridiculous combos on the extra scoring modes but again I don't think I ever completed all of it. WELL THAT CHANGES TODAY. I'm going back in time people, wish me luck.
