Hello, friends. My username is kungfubunny9876. And.....
I'm a gamer.
"Video games are an integral part of my life. For the past 35 years, I've played nearly every game console you could imagine. I've been through the Golden Age of 16-bit, and used to be a hardened Super NES fanboy who despised the Sega Genesis. And, like the end of the Cold War and the crumble of the Berlin Wall, I changed my perspective and did away with my fanboyism to look ahead towards a brighter, friendlier future. As of this writing, I am the proud owner of the following systems: a Super NES, an NES, a Genesis, a Turbo Grafx 16 (with a now-dead CD attachment/many of you probably aren't aware of this console's existence), a Sega Saturn, a GameCube, a PS2, a PS3, a PS4, a Nintendo 3DS, a PSP, a Game Boy Advance, and a Wii U. I used to own an XBOX 360 until I gave it up permanently, and have no plans whatsoever to buy an XBOX ONE.
I'm a writer.
"One of my favorite hobbies outside of gaming, of course, is writing. It could be a story, a paragraph, a couple of sentences, a text on my iPhone to a friend, an email, or, in this case, writing reviews and blogs. From an early age, I've been conditioned through an insane amount of Phonics and Creative Writing courses, as well as typing classes in high school and English and Literature throughout college. A fun fact -- my typing speed is roughly 75-80 words per minute."
I'm an artist.
"Drawing and illustration take precedence over video games. From an early age, I was drawing stuff on notepads. I was drawing even when I wasn't supposed to. This lead to my decision of choosing Art as a career path, so I took Art classes in college and CSULB, graduating with a B.A. Even though a lot of folks say an Art degree has become less of a guarantee in finding a career, the most important thing to remember is cultivating your skills. That means, keep drawing. Keep creating. Improve upon your abilities. Learn new techniques. This is a philosophy I adhere to every day. But what good is talking about my art skill when I have nothing to show for it? Here is my Coroflot portfolio, my Blog and my Facebook Character Illustration Page. (links in construction)
Vietnamese Asian American to be exact. At 36 years old, people have to do a double take with my driver's license to determine whether or not I'm BSing them, because I seriously do NOT look my age. I owe this in part to a relatively good diet, managing my stress levels, and coming to terms with my challenges. In other words, decent living---even in times of great struggle. Quoting Confucius --- "the greatest victories are not in never falling, but rising every time we fall."
I'm a guy.
Don't ask why I use a cute, anime, KAWAII girly avatar (Lana from Hyrule Warriors) as an image. I'm waging psychological warfare. Behind the cute face is 100% MAN. A dude-bro.....with glasses. A fan of Bioshock. Someone who kicks a lot of ass and takes a LOT of names. I speak Californian. 'nuff said, biatches.
And I am legend.
More to come.
I used to be Asagea_888 over at GameSpot.
A few of you may know me as Asagea_888 from the GameSpot website. When I was a member, I used to write reviews and blogs, and earned recognition as one of the Top 100 Contributors. That was how I made a lot of friends. I have fond memories of GameSpot, and fond memories are all I have of a place that is now a shadow of what it once was. Say what you will about GameSpot, but it was never my intention to leave that place. Let's just say I was forced out by the circumstances. Still, I credit my good friend Uesugi Dono for fighting the good fight until the very end, trying to prevent a mass exodus. It is my hope that GameSpot will become a great website again. We'll see. Until then, Asagea_888 is no more. My good friend matastig, the troll with a heart of gold and fellow former GS member, sent the invite to join the GIO community and, after months of consideration, I signed up. And now.....
KEEP CALM. GAME ON. AND COME FIND ME.
