Not What You Expect

The thoughts and views of a girl gamer.

First Post, Welcome, All that Crap

So here it is...my gaming blog.  Very seperate from my every day blog.

As you guessed, I'm a girl.  That's right. Pure girl and pure gamer. 

Time after time I get strange expressions when I tell people what I am into.  The response is usually the same.."I never would have thought".  I am shocked that some people still have a very stereotypical view on what a gamer should look and sound like.

And I personally don't get it.  I feel like a geek...act like one...talk like one....*looks down*..maybe not dress like one though.  No pocket protecters in sight!

Anyway, back to the introduction. 

My forte is MMORPGs.  Love them.  Played many of them, but my addition lies in EQ2 at the moment.  Sorry, but Blizzard just couldn't keep my interest.  I grew out of WoW after about a year.  Of course, I play other things too.  PC mostly, but I love my PS2  and DS just as much as anything else. 

This blog will be my views on gaming topics and news.  Instead of just discussing it with my friends, I can discuss it with you.

geeks dont use pocket protectors - dorks do

uber geeks use cost-effective fairly new revs of tools to get problems solved,  it's not "cool" to use a  thousand lines of basic and obfuscation along with 'wizardry' to solve a problem - it's cool to apply the KISS principle, be robust, be efficient, and be understandable

it's also cool sometimes to lose people - leave em a trail of breadcrumbs though

... and i just cant get back into eq2 - i still like solo-ing 33-50% of the time  and it just was never feasible in that game - looking forward to spellborn and warhammer - see you there if you're a geek
