Games and such

So for those of you who didn't know, I'm a self-proclaimed gamer extraordinaire. I am a certified professional on all things related to games. From first person shooters to MMORPGS and back, I’ve probably played it and have some sort of opinion on it.

This time of year (early fallish) is always the most exciting time in the world of video games because it’s when the BIG yearly titles are coming out. Generally between early September and late November is when all of the games that we’ve been waiting for years, and years, and years to arrive finally do.

September is generally the month of evil waiting.

Personally I’m split between two titles. One I’ve been waiting for a year and a half since I signed up for beta. The other people have been waiting for 10 years since the last title came out.

Namely, Warhammer Online and Fallout 3.

Drastically different games, but both I believe are going to take the gaming world by storm and overshadow most everything else that comes out this year.

Yes, even fucking Blizzards next attempt at clinging to a player base that is generally tired of its game world.

You’ll hear plenty more from me on these two titles I’m sure. Warhammer officially begins for me tomorrow thanks to my pre-ordering skills, and I’m in the process of trying to convince people I know to form a guild with me when it officially releases on Thursday. Fallout 3 is slotted to release for XBOX360 next month on the 28th.

So expect plenty on these two.

Oh, and also the scariest looking game I’ve seen in a long time.

I am a 24 year old British stay at home mother to a two year old boy. Married to a U.S. soldier and currently living in Germany.

I have seen the Vatican from the very top of St Peter's Basilica, the mud in the World War I trenches outside Ypres. I have walked through Montmartre side streets bustling with people in the evening, gotten lost in the streets of Greenwich Village NYC, run through cornfields on the Welsh border and sat outside with a cup of tea watching fireflies in the fields of the outer Chicago suburbs.

I have held the hands of others through addiction, fear, suicide, despair and come out the other side. I have left everything behind to begin anew.
I have fought mental illness and walked through snow in the mountains of the lake district, England. I have explored the morgue in the bowels of an abandoned hospital on a summer evening, climbed to the top of scaffolding on the outside of a five floor warehouse to look at the city lights of Nottingham at night and I have watched the sun setting on the Texas horizon.

I have held my son's tiny hand through the plastic window on an isolette in the NICU ward. Walked, speaking only in whispers, through the catacombs beneath the ground on the outskirts of Rome and seen the fireworks over Heidelberg castle.
