Answers and Halloweenie 2011

Hello world!

Y'all are so warm and welcoming! I received quite a few blog topics and questions via emails, twitter DMs, and even some FaceBook requests from family and friends! I'm going to start with the questions and then move on to the topics, but there are so many, I may have to spread them out amongst various blogs. I'm also excited to tell everyone that I will do my FIRST ever vlog this weekend because people seem really excited about the vlogging deal. Everyone thinks it's a bit more personal and a lot less reading. I do agree to some extent, but at the same time, it requires me to be on camera. =/ I'm a bit camera shy, but I"m sure I'll get over that. Anyways, keep a look out for the vlog! I'll probably post a blog with the vlog in it! How exciting? Now, onto questions!
How long have you been gaming?
I've been gaming since I was a little kid. My cousins and I would play Atari and Nintendo! It was tons of fun. I also played quite a few DOS games back in the day too. My father worked at a computer shop, so I got my fair share of computer game access. Ah, how I miss those floppy disk drive days. I'm talking about the floppy ones! Not the hard disks. (Floppy...Hard...That's what she said? Had to! Sorry!)

What games have you made?
I'm still quite new to the development side of the gaming industry. It's going on my fourth year which may seem like a lot to most people, but games take a lot of time to make. Luckily, I had the pleasure of working on my first game, Free Realms, from start to end. It was a great experience and I learned a lot.

What game are you currently working on now?
Now, I'm on to title numero two, PlanetSide 2! I was a huge fan of the original and played for a good three years with the top guild on my server, Ghost of the Revolution. I have to give a shout out to them! We had some great times. 555th for life! ^___^V

What's your favorite type of game?
My primary game is usually an MMO RPG. I just love them! I'm a huge fan of them, both the PvE and PvP sides. Although I normally play an MMO RPG as my primary game, I always play an FPS game on the side during non-raid or PvP times.

How often do you game?
When I'm on my normal gaming schedule, I game from about 8PM - 11PM Monday through Friday and then around 16ish hours on the weekends, making my total at about 31 hours. It all depends on how long I'm at work. Crunch times tend to cut into my gaming big time, but it's well worth the effort.

Can I watch you game?
Oddly, this is probably one of the creepiest questions I received, but yes... Occasionally, you can! Sometimes, I stream on Twitch.TV.

You're always talking about E-Sports. What is it?
E-sports stands for electronic sports. It's a gaming league for major league (professional) gamers. Yes, gamers who get paid to game! I've been trying to break into the industry. I have a team of really great gamers, Alpha Collective, and I'd love to see them kicking some booty at a higher level, doing the thing they love most, all the time!

What's your favorite color?
Orange!

Well, that's all I have time for today, so I'll save the rest of the questions for later! I still have quite a few left. O_O
Oh and...Since it was Halloween most recently, I figured I could do a little photo action. I'm not a very religious person, but I love costumes, so Halloween is an excuse for me to dress up. This year, I went as Lady Luck and a Lion! Yes, I had two costumes. One was for a house party and another was for my work. I don't have that many pictures of my costumes, so you'll have to deal with what you get! =] I hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween.
I hope you all enjoyed the answers and pictures!
