I’ve been gaming for most of my life, starting off with an Atari 2600 back in the days when it cost $200. I stuck with Atari’s with the Atari 800, and then went to the NES and Genesis. But in 1989 I got my first IBM PC – and it was an ACTUAL IBM machine. Playing games like Zork, Bard’s Tale, Starflight, X-Wing, Wing Commander, and other classic PC Games. I eventually started playing Anarchy Online, and beta tested Star Wars: Galaxies (sorry bout that).
During a stint living in Florida, I hosted a one-hour live radio program on a local Daytona Beach radio station. Using what I learned there, Stacalm and I have been live-casting the show since March 2010.
I started playing WoW in Setpember of 2007, and have a level 80 Hunter on the Trollbane realm.
Like many of our generation, I grew up with video games as a part of my life. I grew up with Atari classics like Centipede, Missile Command, and one of my all-time favorites, Defender. Unlike Gill, my family favored the Atari 400. You know…the one with the flat keyboard that you could clean with a pencil eraser. Oh yeahhhh.
I was a console gamer for most of the 90s owning every console from Nintendo to my first optical gaming system, the Turbo Duo. It wasn’t until the late 90s that I really started getting into the PC gaming arena. My first extensive experience with PC gaming was with Total Annihilation and my first MMORPG was Ultima Online. After suffering through a short stint with Star Wars: Galaxies, I was completely turned off to the whole MMORPG genre and steered in the direction of RTS’ and FPS’. However, in early 2008, I decided it was time to try out something new. That’s when I discovered WoW and rediscovered how much I enjoy the MMORPG arena.
My first year and half, I played as an Orc Rogue, but have since changed my main to Stacalm, a level 85 Blood Elf Priest on the Quel’Dorei realm. FOR THE HORDE!
