Gaming and Me

I was at work today (I just recently got a job at a local sandwich shop called Which Which, and you guys should go if you have one anywhere near you. They’re the coolest thing since sliced bread) and I started thinking about the new console Nintendo’s going to be completely unveiling at this year’s E3. Actually, I cannot wait until Nintendo releases their new console. I’m going to buy it with MY hard-earned cash and it will be mine. I’m actually ridiculously excited. It will be the first console I’ve ever really owned, that my parents didn’t buy for me. That’s actually pretty exciting, when I think about it. I’m going to be buying my first car here in the next 2-3 months, but I’m more excited about buying the new Nintendo console, hahaha. I was watching G4 today, and I saw the graphics for the new Zelda game that’s actually supposedly just a “tech” demo. I think I shed a tear watching how beautiful everything looked. I have very high hopes for the next Nintendo console.

We shall see what Nintendo has up their sleeves this year in this coming June…. I’m totally stoked. Well, anyway. I gotta go do house stuff. Peace out 🙂

Up and Running

Hello everyone! I’m new to this site, but I thought I’d put up a post to get started. I’d like to start by saying that I am very excited to have a new, fresh blog to post in.

What I’d like to bring up is that this blog will be mostly, if not all, about gaming, specifically Nintendo gaming. I’ve been a Nintendophile since I was brought into this world 19-some-odd years ago, and from the moment I could pick up a controller, I was hooked. I remember being a kid and staring at the tiny (at least compared to today’s televisions) T.V. screen and watching my mother and father play games such as Super Mario World, Super Metroid (which in turn became my own obsession and launched my love for the gaming industry) and the Donkey Kong Country series, along with various other games that influenced my young growing mind.

When I turned 10, I convinced myself that I was going to work for Nintendo. I started teaching myself how to draw (and to this day, have still had ZERO drawing classes. Well, high school classes don’t really count, haha), and played video games every chance I got. In the fifth grade, instead of doing homework, I filled a comp book with ideas for a new Metroid story. Unfortunately, over time that tiny comp book became lost in different moves my family did.

As I grew older, I discovered that I had a love for both drawing AND writing. In my sophomore year of high school, I joined Nintendo’s Nsider forums (for those of you who remember these, congrats! They were amazing) and became familiar with the various ins and outs of the site. It was there that I began to write another Metroid story of my own. I finished an entire book’s worth of chapters (24), and achieved a very high respect level in the community. Unfortunately, all things come to an end. Nintendo took down the Nsider forums, and with it I lost all of my works.

I am now nineteen years old and working for myself as a writer and novelist. In November/December I finished my first full-length novel, as a gift for a friend. I’ve come to terms with the fact that although I may never work for Nintendo, my love for the games and the art and writing will never grow old or die.

Gaming has become an integral part of my life, and I do hope you’ll follow my blog as I report on various aspect of it.

Thank you very much. 🙂
