Mojo's bio points: Updated June 3, 2012
I am not a hardcore gamer. I am just a gamer, maybe a core gamer, the oft misused adjective should be reserved for adult films and aging rockers. I also enjoy some casual games on ios and (formerly)Android. Have a 3DS, Vita, and enjoy them all. Call me what you will, but please don't call me
. (okay, that wasn't nice of me to call out serious_gamer like that, but I couldn't help it. Born4this made me do it)
Unreasonable Fanfolk need not apply. Nothing wrong with liking a system, series, or anything else. Nothing wrong with liking those things exclusively. If you cannot cope with the fact that YOUR OPINION is not shared by all, then I would thank you kindly to move on. Imagine this scenario: Gamer A/B are die hard CoD fans. Gamer C/D are Battlefield faithfuls. Gamer A/D are Microsoft loyalists. Gamer B/C are part of the Sony Defense Force. I think when the worlds collide, their heads would explode.
I like pretty much any games. My favorite being action(Uncharted) and my least favorite being sports, though I love sports in real life. Why limit yourself, have an open mind and give em all a chance, even the social games are fun at times.
I don't recall the specific name given to those who are fans of Apple products, but I am not one of them. I do have an iphone and an ipad, but the truth is that they just work for me. Simple, easy to use, and reliable. I have had android phones in the past, and absolutely loved them.
I have a cat, a dog, and a kid. The cat is the only girl in the house, therefore she is the boss. I am old, I will be turning 4 and 30 this August(God Willing), I am a bit out of shape, I shave my head instead of dealing with my wacked out hairline. I have strong Faith but tend to not discuss that here, though am always open to carrying on a discussion in private. I don't have enough appendages to count my flaws and character defects. I have made many mistakes in my life, and will likely make many more.
It is time to finally put this one to rest...I have NOT had one or multiple sex change operations.
I am a passionate Denver Broncos fan, I am sad to see Tim Tebow go, say what you will about the guy, but he is a winner.
I primarily play single player games, however I am more than happy to play online with anybody from the GIO community, you want to coop sometime? Just ask!
I have been a registered user of Gameinformer.com since early 2007, though it wasn't until about two years ago that I started commenting on news stories, and a little over a year ago I started participating in the
. Both are great areas, and you should totes check them out. Many great events take place in this community, for example
has just begun!
I love to collect Video Game merchandise, my collecting started out harmless enough, a collectors edition here, a small figure there. Like any good obsession, it has taken a life of it's own. My house is now decorated with statues, paintings, posters and lithographs depicting some of my favorite games. I have too much stuff, and have recently started to give some away. If I think you might like something I have, I may just send you a message asking if you want it;)
As gamers, we all have a responsibility to represent ourselves in a manner that will help non gamers come to understand and appreciate our passion for gaming. Using racial, homophobic, or other rude or inappropriate language/behaviors while online only hurt us all in the long run. I love gaming, and I truly feel that most of us can handle ourselves in a mature and respectful manner, but sometimes I find myself quite saddened by the actions of SOME gamers. This could be said for any group of people of course, but I'd like to think of us as better than that. Just because people on an MSN board act like idiots, doesn't mean it justifies us doing so as well.
There are so many great members of this community, I am not even going to begin listing them, but I feel I can say with certainty that this group of people, the Men and Women, young and old, big and small, all the people that make up the Gameinformer Online Community are the best of the best. I don't mean we have the greatest gamers as far as skill goes, I mean we have the most compassionate, honest, thoughtful, people that just happen to be gamers. Also, Commander Shepard told me that this was his favorite spot on the extranet. I am here to be of service to this community, so please don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
I consider you all my friends, so if I haven't sent you a friend request, don't take it personal. We all love this site, but we also know it can have a mind of it's own at times, and sending friend requests from my account apparently doesn't sit well with this site! Sometimes it works, but the vast majority it doesn't work so well, and bad things end up happening. Bad things man.
Users come and go all the time, some come back, some don't. They have their reasons, and it is not for me to determine whether they are good or bad. What I do know, is that it really doesn't matter if you have been here a decade, a week, or a day. This community is as good as we make it RIGHT NOW, not what it was, or what it could be. While the more experienced members should certainly set a good example, the site isn't anything without the newer members. We make this site what it is, and that changes all the time. We should not be upset about what was, or dwell on what is not. We are here. We are now.
Videogames are...games! Have fun, that's what it is all about my friend!
Delancey The Mad
that I would put this here. So I am keeping my promise. I really appreciated his very kind and generous praise, however I still feel that our community is great because of the sum of our parts, not any one, or group of people. I was very shocked when he told me he was going to do this, and as I stated in the original blog, I only agreed to do it because I could use it as a platform to recognize our community as a whole...and he said he was doing it one way or the other, so I figured I might as well help!
TEAM GIO and Extra Life
Last October, our community participated in the first ever TEAM GIO Extra Life charity gaming marathon. It was a megaton of fun and we raised over $2300 for the Childrens Miracle Network. This year, we have much bigger ambitions, with a year of experience under our belt(and we only had a month to prepare last year), we think we can at least double that amount this year. TEAM GIO 2012 is officially underway! I encourage you all to participate, you can
sign up here
or if you need more info ask myself or this years team captain
Special thanks to
for making this years logo! Feel free to use this in your header, signature, or wherever you want! We will be making some other sizes and some page badges very soon!
The Jacked Up Indie and Mojo Show!
In July(i think) of 2011, I responded to an advertisement that
had left in one of his blogs inquiring about potential Podcasting Partners. I responded, and for some crazy reason we decided to give this thing a chance! The Indie and Mojo Show debuted on August 18, 2011. Described as a conversational podcast with the focus on gaming and the gameinformer online community, Daniel and I were pretty terrible at first(yes, I know we still are according to some). Over time, we got to know each other a bit, and I think we do a pretty good job for a couple of amateurs who are thousands of miles away from each other. We have had some great fun, many of our fellow GIOers have been kind enough to be guests on our show, and we've even had some industry folks make an appearance. We have had some awesome contests, and have just really had a great experience. We are very proud of what we have accomplished so far.
Recently, we discussed the possibility of adding a third person to the show full time. There were a couple of people interested in doing it, but we really felt
Jack, the quixotic gamer
was a great addition to our team. So starting with episode 33(34?) we became the Jacked up Indie and Mojo Show. Many things have changed over this year, however our commitment to being ourselves on air, to spotlighting the GIO community, and to discussing some of the most controversial topics in gaming hasn't changed. You can find us right here on GIO, all of our episodes can be downloaded/listened to on
. We welcome any and all feedback! If you want to be a guest, let us know and we will put you on the list!
The New logo needs some polish, but we will fix it proper eventually!
That is all for now Ladies and Gentleman. As always, you stay classy...Thanks for stopping by!
