Move over, Facebook. There’s a new PLAYER in town.

If you follow me on any type of social media (and I’m on a lot of it), then you may have seen me mention a new site that I’ve become a big fan of. It’s a place where gamers can go and talk about video games, share their own streams, join groups, and discover other gamers from all over the world. It’s the best of Facebook, Twitter, and Twitch all rolled into one. It’s Player.me, and it’s awesome.

Nailing things down

DSCN0211

Since the age of 6 or 7, I always knew I wanted to be included in the video games industry. I’ve been saying for quite some time now that I’m not sure what to do, though. I don’t program, my art at this point is pretty sub-par (and I don’t know any of the new programs now, anyway), I’m not a teen or young 20-something single chick that can model, I have a face for radio and a voice for silent film, and I’m not plugged in to all the new games and consoles. I tried video games journalism, but I don’t want to just report news. I want to be part of the news. Not a lot going on for me in a lot of areas.

However, I think I’ve finally found a niche that I CAN make a difference in. I want to bring awareness of the gaming community as something more than just a stereotype. I’m highly aware that there are already people doing this. Hell, PSP is one of the best at it (you can find him at www.patrickscottpatterson.com). But there can always be one more voice.

Hi all! Quick update on what’s going on the next week:

1. I wrote an article on the psychology of gaming behavior, and so far I’ve gotten a really positive response on it. You can read it here.

2. This weekend I am participating in Operation Supply Drop’s 8-bit Salute. You can watch me stream on Twitch, and consider donating here.

3. Mike is going to be absent on the show tomorrow, but I’ll be there with bells on! Catch the show Sat at 11am on the Guru Show website!

4. I’ll be writing more articles for Guru Show, and I’ve been keeping my Twitter pretty active with gaming and tech news.

5. Come check me out on Player.me! It’s a great social site for gamers, and I’d love to connect with you on there.

Welp, that’s it for now. I’ll check in again with another update or review. Cheers!

Small Break, … Kinda

I’ll be taking a short break from blogging, as I prepare for E3.  I will probably still throw up a couple of rants, cool pics, etc that don’t fall into “newsworthy” criteria, but I’ll be posting most of my material on Examiner.com (http://www.examiner.com/video-game-in-tucson/tara-foulkrod) so you can catch stuff on there.

Alternatively, you can find me on Twitter or Facebook, with links on the right of this page.  That’s where I’ll be posting most of the info I come across, so be sure to check in!

I’d like to thank everyone for their support.  See y’all during E3!
