Hi everyone! I’ve been holding off posting an introduction because I hate writing these things. Lol

Anyway, here goes. I’m a 30-year-old male living in Renton, a suburb of Seattle, WA. I’ve been in the BP Beta Testing program for nearly a year now, and I’ve been privileged to watch it evolve over that time. As a part of my BP activities I help work on the BP Wiki and I'm trying to do what I can (I need more skillz) to help Vimes with this site.

I’m an avid gamer. I’d say my top gaming genre is a pretty even tie between RTS and Strategy. I’m looking forward to Starcraft II, Red Alert 3, and Dawn of War II these days. I was playing Universe at War, but the stupid thing won’t let me progress to the 3rd campaign when I win the last mission of the 2nd campaign, and my e-mails to tech support have been ignored, so it’s just shelved now. RA3 and DoW2 really hooked me when they announced co-op play for the main campaign in both of those games. I really enjoy co-op. The Total War games are great too with their Strategy layer and RTS combat combo. Looking forward to Total War: Empires. For Strategy I’ve been playing games like Heroes of Might and Magic V and Galactic Civilizations 2. Old favorites include Stars! 2, Master of Orion 2, and Master of Magic 2. After Strategy I have a lot of fun with the strategy/squad-based tactical games like the old X-COM: UFO Defense type games and Jagged Alliance 2. I have UFO: Afterlight with ShadoWarrior’s mod on my hard drive. I do play some FPS but not a lot. I recently got Mercenaries 2, which is pretty fun. I tried Battlefield 2, but I couldn’t get into it. I really felt that it needed a strategic layer such that the number of tanks you can spawn in a battle is determined by how many tanks were available in that area in the strategic layer, etc. That would probably suck me in, but the typical multiplayer FPS doesn’t do it for me. Single player FPS is ok since there’s a story to go with it. I also play some Sim games. I got Spore. I can’t believe they put a limit of three installs on it and they still have a CD key on top of that. Pretty insane.

Besides gaming I do a fair bit of working with computer hardware. I build all of my computers. I also build computers for family, friends, and friends of friends. As a part of all this, I read a lot online about the latest in computer hardware, reviews, benchmarks, etc. I’m always happy to discuss this stuff, give advice, and answer questions.

Ok, that’s long enough. lol

Ah, a C&C fan. RA3 will be good, I have been doing that beta as well for a while.
