I finally can post in the discussions, so what better place to start
First off, I'm what some would call "Totally Wacked" but in the good way. Always excited, always in a good mood. I'm relaxed in the right situations and a spaz in the right situations. Place and time, as the saying goes.
I'm an arcade rat, big time. I was that girl in the arcade with her brothers XXL hoodies looking like a street kid, always posted up out front with my big 7/11 cup or lurking inside. If there is a quarter line, I'm in it. Prolly off playing 1942 cause it's a quarter to play and it's a sick game!
That has never changed. I still find arcades to stand in front of with my big cup of soda and hoodies on. My day time professional attire versus my at home or out (well in most cases) is like Clark Kent V.S. Superman LOL!
Used to actually sleep in the arcade I would play for so long, get in the way back behind some old machines. Actually got into electronics repair business from doing this (Queue awful jokes). When one of my main spots first got Virtual Fighter, I got to demo it with my brother (it was mad buggy too!). Maintence guy opened up the coin door and I saw all the bits of metal and lights and springs, and he stuck his finger in giving us 20 credits to test it out (We knew fighting games.. And we were GOOD). I was hooked. I wanted to live inside there.
Big into Sound Reinforcement, Audio Engineering / Production, Djing (maybe not what quite like you first might think!), pirate radio, anything electro-mechanical, and of course games (I won't list the entire wall worth here).
I'm not a game collector. I mean you buy games, it's a collection of games by defenition. But I'm not into buying things for the sake of having them, I never really was into that side of things. I still think it's cool when I see other people collect this stuff like it's baseball cards. I do get it though. And I'm big on hobbys, so I see someone who has a hobby that's not watching TV, I'de never put that down.
It always makes me feel good, to see other people feel good.
For scores, I take it pretty searously. If I vote legit on your score and you have a 2 hour video of it, I DO watch the full thing. Which is crazy because I won't watch videos of people playing games period. Unless it's something like scoring. I'm totally nuts, I know.
So when I found this site and was checking things out and saw guys playing these great pins, and people who had their names on VCS carts and all these scores. I thought, yeah. This is great!!
Shame there is no Messege function, so many people here I've wanted to get in touch with and talk games and such. Maybe someday ^_^
Do I now hold the high score for longest introduction?
