I have no idea how to start this post. None at all. I've written probably 3 or so introductory sentences that I've deleted out of disgust. Curse this prose that flows from my fingers like day old porridge!
So! My name is Joshua. I've used SirPenguin as my online handle for a silly number of years now. I'm a senior at college majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Mathematics. It is my eventual goal in life to work in the gaming industry...hopefully as a designer, but of course programming would be loads of fun as well. I also realize these dreams of mine are highly unoriginal and I'll be competing with literally millions of others that have the same dream. What is a game, if not competition?
I enjoy writing blogs as a hobby. Mostly I start up a blog for a game I am excited for (Scribblenauts being one example, Super Smash Bros. Brawl another) that get moderately popular among a certain crowd. Then I quit literally days before the release of whatever game it is I'm writing about, never to touch that particular blog again. It's a weird hobby of mine, and, let's face it, it's borderline retarded. So I came up with an idea: keep the weird habit of excitedly blogging about games I'm excited for...but don't host it on my own webspace. Instead host it on an established gaming website where people might appreciate such postings, and where suddenly changing subjects because I am bored will not be looked upon as bad. Instead, it'll probably be the norm.
Is GiantBomb such a place? Well...I hope so. At the very least I'm sure we'll enjoy the journey.
