What's up guys?

Just the new guy in town, and figured I'd try to introduce myself.

My name is Erik, but tend to go by Shock, or Shockum. I'm 28, and have lived in North Carolina my entire life.

I've been an avid gamer for as long as I can remember. My older brother owned a Nintendo, and I played countless hours of Duck Hunt. Gradually, moved onto the SNES, PS2, Xbox 360, PS3, and PS4. Really, my love, has been PC (MMO) gaming. I toyed with Everquest, but really got into MMOs with Asheron's Call. Along with AC, I've played DAoC, WoW, SWG, Rift, SW:ToR, GW2, and briefly Wildstar. Plus my wallet barely survives the Steam's Summer Sale.

Weird thing is, while I love PC Gaming, I seem to be better at certain games (FPS) on consoles. It's weird.

Outside of gaming, I love to write. Well, mainly toy with ideas. To pass time at work, I create stories in my mind to speed things up. I never write them down, so I never remember exactly where I was when I start it up again.

As for my job, I work part-time at a grocery store. It wasn't the dream I had with a journalism degree. But, beggars can't be choosers.

I was actually referred here for the WoW gaming magazine. Getting to write is something I love, and WoW is osmething I love. I'd say that's a win-win.

Looking forward to meeting you guys.

Re: What's up guys?

I play FPS better on console than PC. And I played Wolfenstein 3D on a shareware floppy disc.

Maybe if I bothered getting a pad hooked up to my PC...

Regardless - welcome!

Re: What's up guys?

Hi Shockum
I used to play SWG a lot (A REAL LOT)
Its one of the reasons I try not to play MMOs these days, I am worried no work would get done.

I am sorry man, but FPS are for PCs, not consoles

Re: What's up guys?

Welcome to the Forums, and congratulations on starting an argument on your first day. lol.

FPS = PC...

Consoles = 3rd Person

But that's just my opinion.
