Introduction: My First Blog

Posted by InFlames215, 17 May 2010 · 153 views

Now that I have finished my college education, I decided it was about time I started a blog on CAG. I've never blogged before, but there are so many things I've always wanted to write about, so here I am. A little about myself:

I recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin with a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science. My main focus was networking and mobile phones. I'm huge music freak and mostly listen to extreme metal, post-hardcore and some indie stuff. I'm also a sushi addict; I ordered sushi three times last week, no joke. Other things I enjoy: going out for drinks/partying, 420 (both of which are pretty common with ANY student at the UW), and some sports (especially MMA).

And of course, I wouldn't be on here if I didn't play video games on a regular basis. I tend to favor retro gaming experiences over modern ones; I've been playing a lot of New Super Mario Bros. Wii lately mostly because it reminds me so much of SMB3 and SMW. I'm horribly nostalgic when it comes to that kind of thing. I completely immerse myself into every new 2d Metroid and Castlevania game they come out with. I also recently purchased Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection and play Fatal Labyrinth almost every other day. That's not to say I don't like playing other games.

What do I plan on blogging about? I probably won't stray too far from the topics of life, music, video games, and the occasional MMA fight. I'd rather spare you all the details of programming and such, and really, as much as I'm interested in it.... let's face it, I'm going to be doing this for a living. I don't need to blog about it too :)

I've been a member here for awhile, and I really enjoy the community here. I look forward to sharing with you my interests, I hope it to be an interesting read for at least some of you, maybe all of you. OK, probably just some of you.

So yeah. Have a good one.

Welcome to the CAG blogs!

Congratulations on graduating from college, that is a major accomplishment.

I'm looking forward to your blogs. Right now, I'm mostly into the current-gen games (Nintendo tends to be my favorite, but I like Sony and Microsoft as well) but I'm trying to get into retro gaming. I have an SNES, Gamegear, PS1 and recently got an N64. I used to have an NES, but it was sold by accident, so I'm planning to replace the system and all the games I had. I started collecting some older gameboy games and some Gameboy Advance games from a store by me, but after they left I kind of stopped collecting.

I'm still new to retro gaming and love reading about other peoples retro gaming interests, collections etc.
*like
Just no dolls please
Congrats on the graduation
@1NintendoFan: Thanks! I started playing the NES when I was about 2 years old (or so says my mom) , so I pretty much grew up on the stuff. But again, I like newer games too. Borderlands is definitely a favorite of mine, and I like to play WOW every once an awhile along with other RPG's.

@wune: I promise you, there will be no dolls lol.

@kilm: Thanks! In a year or two I might end up going to grad school, but we'll see I guess.
