Hello, I go by the alias chanceisshane. You can use this to find me on many other sites and PSN. I am just a 22 year old college student who has been spending the last 6 years trying to figure out what to with his life. Other than that, I play video games... a lot. Almost to the point of addiction I would say, and I finally have figured out why. Escapism. For many years of my life I have been bullied physically, told how I should live by most of my family, and talked down to because of my appearance (super skinny, long hair, glasses, baggy clothing - mainly to hide how skinny I am) that video games, and to an almost equal extent music, became an out to all of that. Places where I can be whatever I want to be no matter what others say. Currently, it is also a way of stress relief as I am constantly anxiety-ridden.
In person, I am a very shy (even over the Internet) and reclusive person. To be honest, it is a miracle that I am even on this site at all and a greater miracle that I am going into detail about myself. I know this will be a great hindrance to the job I want, being involved in game development, which is why I have been trying to remedy it lately by trying to be more active socially both in person and over the Internet. Now I know in a previous version of this bio I said I would be writing more blogs and reviews than I have up right now, but I have been very busy with school lately. I will try to get one or two up now and then. When I do, please critique them. I am very open to criticism and would love to talk about video games with other people. I know that I must grasp as many opinions on video games as possible and not just hold onto my own if I am to be involved in the creation of one myself.
Now that all of that depressing stuff is out of the way, time to talk more in-depth about what I like.

I am a huge fan of Brendon Small's work:
I wonder if StarCraft 1/2 will work on my laptop. Until then, nostalgia:
