As many of you know aside from being a gamer myself I am a huge proponent of women breaking into the professional gaming scene (even when they’re not exactly the best people). To that end I’ve recruited Nicole, an avid gamer herself, to join the WWJTD team as a gaming columnist.
Here’s the bio Nicole sent me so you guys can get to know her:
I can talk about video games all day but ask me to talk about myself and I clam up. Go figure. But, I’ll give it a shot anyway. My name is Nicole but most people call me Nick (online I go by Flea due to my gamertag). I’m a 37 year old geek. I’m a gamer, a comic book lover, tech fanatic, sci-fi/fantasy lover and artist. I think my friends and family would agree that gaming to me is more than a hobby, it’s a lifestyle. It’s a part of who I am and I’m proud to say it’s introduced me to some awesome people I normally wouldn’t have contact with. Removing gaming from my life would essentially be similar to removing a limb.
I have a gaming system of some type on my person at all times. I do play a few mobile games but mostly on the go it’s either a PS Vita or a 3DS in my hands. I will give any kind of game a shot so I don’t think I have a “type” per se. Destiny has taken up most of my time in the past year. I don’t suck at shooters, but I’m not great either, heh. I do enjoy them, though. I’m mostly a story driven kind of girl. Bioshock is my favorite series of all time, closely followed by Uncharted. I have tattoos from both games (more designs on the way). I love playing online with my sister and I have a small, close group of friends I spend most of my time with.
My husband and I get just about any system that comes out (cause let’s face it, there are great games everywhere) so if it’s out, I’m on it. I’m GhoulishFlea on PS3/PS4/Vita/360/X1/OUYA and yaboiksar on Steam and Raptr. On 3DS I’m 1118-0580-9262 (silly numbers).
I’ve been gaming since I was a wee little girl. I remember fighting for the Atari stick when I was around 4. I’ve done a few reviews for other sites but I’m still new at it so please let me know if there is anything I can improve. Please let me know if there are things I am doing well. The way I see it, I’m here to encourage discussion and debate (of the friendly nature) so I’m here for you guys.
I have an awesome 5 yr old daughter who is taking after her mom and dad when it comes to gaming. I live in Charlotte, NC and I’m a developer for an adult entertainment company. Yes, porn.
Hopefully I haven’t scared anyone off. I am looking forward to talking/playing/chatting with you guys!
PS. Feel free to ask me anything you’d like to know.
Do I find the most interesting people for this site or what? 😀
