Post Number One

So, I'm giving this whole blogging thing a go. Hopefully, I'll actually continue blogging unlike what I have done with many other activities like this (journals and the likes). I'm not entirely sure what topics to talk about, I'm just not feeling passionate about a lot of things lately. We'll just use this first post as a in introduction I s'pose.

Well, my name is Jimmy Fallon. I am a avid game player and am going to be attending school for a BA in Computer Science with an emphasis in Software Engineering. I am hoping to be a game programmer. I was attending a different school previously but it was all the art and animation that comes with games. Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it, but I knew that wasn't what I truly wanted to do. Anyway, moving on from that, I play Black Ops (like everyone does), but I don't really like it all that much. I am really only playing it because I haven't found a new game to really latch onto. Minecraft helps, but sometimes I just want variety.

I am super excited for Battlefront 3, but I don't really have any experience in the series, so hopefully that turns out well. I loved Halo, but I never really got into Reach, and I never really had some good bros to play with that were good and fun to play with (and played things other than SWAT).

Other than that, I play League of Legends and TF2 along with the occasional single player game like the Fallout series, Oblivion, God of War series, Final Fantasy (mostly just X). Same with Halo, I played MAG, but never got into it like I did the Call of Duty series. Oh, and I picked up StarCraft 2, but turned out to be quite bad compared to my competition. I like Age of Empires, but I never played against other people, usually just AI skirmishes.

I s'pose I'll leave it at that for now. See what kinda stuff I'm gonna want to talk about.
