She's teaching the history of video games. We've covered everything from table-top games circa .. something B.C. to the Commodore 64, the NeoGeo, everything in between, and recent stuff. I think the owner of this site is going to be skyping with my class tomorrow about gaming journalism, actually. Definitely gonna be there / looking forward to it.

Thanks guys!

P.S. I can't see what the appeal of SWTOR is. I'm admitaddly ignorant as all hell of it, but being a big fan of proper Star Wars (as in the Clone Wars animations arent what comes to mind when I think "Star Wars" and episodes 1 / 2 / 3 sucked balls compared to 4 / 5 / 6), I'm pretty curious. Maybe when I have more time, I'll look into it.

I'm personally excited for Guild Wars 2. It's still just a bunch of example vid's and information pages, but tanking looks like a ton of fun. Since they've supposedly done away with their instanced mantra, which always disconnected me from the rest of the GW community in the first game, GW2 may become my new MMO.

P.S. - MB has just informed me that my first article is now a featured user article! So glad my college education is finally getting validated outside of college xD I can't wait to get into the several topics I've been thinking about for weeks now. Is there a page that'll show my articled under some kind of "featured" banner or something like that? I noticed it didn't show up on the community site. I wrote the article originally as an assignment for my teacher, so I'd love to show her that. Easy A, anyone? Haha

Vanquish, an otherwise unknown platforming title, is one of the coolest most underrated third-person shooter games I've played in a while. I'm a huge fan of all things mecha and robotic, so I satisfied so many addictions when I played through that game ^_^

Rage definitely took me by surprise. I wasn't sure how good John Goodman would work as a character in a game, but he rocked it pretty well. I don't know, Rage feels a lot like what I expected Doom to be like. So basically, Rage = Doom 4, and for that, I fucking loved it.

Infinity Blade 2 for the iPhone blew me away too.

Amnesia: The Dark Decent -- still haven't beat this game. That's never happened before.

Heavy Rain and L.A. Noire both brought back an old element to gaming that I thought lost to the PS1 era; storytelling! I love them both and hope to see more games like them sooner rather than later. :)

Battlefield 3. Because CoD's for children. Grow up.

Oblivion / Skyrim both have major stakes in my soul. Which is fine. ^_^

Also, Halo Anniversary. What a great example of how to remake a game without fucking it up. The first Halo has always been my favorite, so it was great fun rekindling an old friendship over replaying one of my childhood favorites with a childhood friend.

So what's everyone up too? I'm half-way done with my research paper and about to start lurking for a minute to unplug before finishing up.

Since this is technically my last semester, I'm not really doing "finals" so much more as I'm writing roughly 20k words in 2 days, among several powerpoint slides. I'm writing a paper on Anonymous / 4Chan and how it will / has affect(ed) communications in mass media and public policy / legislation. Sooo.. laptop, comfortable chair, Fruit Punch Arizona tea, music, and occaisonally Tumblr.

I'm doomed. Hahaha

Hey all, heard about this site from my teacher. I'm really digging all the love for user reviews and the wide range of awesome topics I've been secretly lurking in. Thank you so much Community Spotlight / Hamst3r for Kick Dudes in the Dick xD

So, as customary from the codex that should exist for newbies, I've written an article. I hope you'll take a chance to read it and let me know what you think, community feedback is always loved :D

Now, no more procrastinating.. I have so much homework x_x; Anyone else going through the Final's Grind?

Turn your phone off, then turn it back on here. There's a list of other bugs and how to fix them under "The Bad" in this article.
