Oh, you want a little more detail, ok I can do that. I love comics, reading- mainly Sci-Fi and Fantasy as real life is full enough of factual things; I prefer my escapism. Also Manga, movies, board games, CCG's, and Roleplaying. Not that kind of roleplaying, you have a filthy mind, well at least not just that kind of roleplaying, tabletop and Live Action too. I've run a Live action roleplaying game for the better part of 20 years now so I guess I must enjoy it, either that or I'm a glutton for punishment. Gaming, do I do gaming, yes, yes indeed I do. Probably started with the Game and Watch hand held games systems and progressed from there into a full blown addiction. First computer was a Vic 20, I played Blitz solidly for a couple of hours until I flattened the city and the little man got of the plane and waved at me. Spectrum, check, first 48k the the 128; next an amiga and eventually a PC, playing X-wing for the first time blew me away. Of course I'm a star wars Fan. Next consoles, sure I;ve played them all but didnt own my own until the original Playstation was given to me by my friends at university for my birthday. First thing I did was go straight across the road to Blockbuster and purchase final Fantasy XII. I think it was at least a week later before I surfaced for air after putting that disk in the machine. Playstation 2 - of course, xbox - indeed, gamecube -couldn't miss out on Golden Eye, PSP - Check, Playstion3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS Vita, and Xbone, you goot catch em all. Still missing a PS4 and Wii U, but hey, one day they will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine. Also being born and raised in Blackpool I did the arcades; and I mean a lot. Pac-man, Galaga, Galaxians, Space Invaders, Smash TV, Guantlet, 1942, 1943 and the rest. I do love me some retro gaming.
Now I'm a Divorcee and Father of two wonderful children, Nate and Lily. I'm really lucky, I have just shy of 50/50 custody, so though it breaks my heart when they aren't with me it does give me a whole bunch of time for my gaming and other geeky pursuits.
