<This is some serious nerd cred right here.>


            Hi everyone! My name is Cody Bauman, and this is my first blog ever. As a matter of fact, this is the first piece writing I have ever done. . . ever. I've wanted to start a blog for some time, but I'm a bum. That is, until recently when a very good friend of mine helped me figure out something about myself. Something soul-crushing and sad. Thus, I'm blogging. To ease into the scene, I decided to start out with the basic "who and why" blog. 

            I have been playing games for almost as long as I can remember. Games are a part of who I am and who I have grown up to be as a productive(-ish) adult. I still have very fond memories of playing Chex Quest, Jazz Jackrabbit, and Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure. I only had the demos of Jazz Jackrabbit and Cosmo's because we were broke, but I still remember having my dad type in the DOS commands so I could play my favorite games.


<Decoder rings? Nope, Doom Clone. SCORE!>


            I love all types of games from RPGs to FPSes, platformers to Strategy games. I pride myself on my knowledge of the most popular games of the past 10 years. If there's a popular games out there, I want to know why it's popular, what it's about, and what the people playing it are saying about it. Even if I have absolutely no interest in, or ability to play the game. I enjoy learning more about the medium which I have grown so attached to.

            As the years go by, systems become more advanced, games improved in quality, but one thing that has never changed is my love for gaming. I still get butterflies when I tear open a new game. Three words: New. Game. Smell. (Don't lie, y'all know what I'm talking about)


  <See? Ice-T knows.>

            What I want to do is have at least a weekly update. I will probably cover other nerd subjects besides videogames such as webcomics, famous nerdy people, and whatever other nerdy endeavers I might enjoy. I want either a review, blog, or guide up each week, or multiple posts a week if I get in a real creative mood (which I wont).

            For other Cody brand entertainment, follow my twitter at the link below. As well as normal twitter ramblings about my life, I regularly do live-tweets of game playthroughs. So far, I live-tweeted through each Mass Effect, and am currently live-tweeting my Final Fantasy IX playthrough. I have never actually finished FF IX, even though this is my 5th playthrough, but I plan to see it through to the end this time. (I'm serious.)

PS: That good friend I mentioned? His name is John. He's also my editor. I'm gonna be nice and give him a blurb at the end of each blog for editing my mess I call a 'blog'. Wordy.
