    Multitasking  

[06/29/2002]   Yes, we're still alive. Ever been linked to broadband for an extended period of time and then have all access cut for over a month? Not the most pleasant experience.

For PSoV's summer resurrection, I'd like to pay tribute to one of our most consistent (and prolific) contributors - a true multitasker. Ladies and gentlemen - I present Desh.


Whoa, did I really write that much? I'm a musician and math geek at heart, so writing has never really been a huge attraction for me. These four years of high school have been mostly concert and math competition dominated, but then I went to a new school in northern Maine for my junior and senior years. I live in a dorm with fellow math and science geeks, and Canada is a stone's throw away. Winters are long, as we just had more snow the other day (grrr...), and the dorm is in a small town with nothing to do. My life before going there wasn't very video-game heavy, with a few RPGs here and there to start, but when I got there, I found that almost every gaming system in existence could be found there. Did I study every night and go to bed early? Nah. I quickly learned to be a full-time mooch, and my list of completed games has grown dramatically.

Then, sometime this last fall, I found this site and PsoV and noticed that there were quite a few games on the "reviewless" list that I'd played. But, writing had never really appealed to me, so I just continued to play games and watch RPGamer every now and then.

Boredom struck one day, and I read every single update for PsoV and Q&A. After reading them, I was inspired to write suddenly. And it's all Paws' fault. I laughed and laughed at parts, and said to myself "I've gotta send her SOMETHING." So I sent reviews in large packages. I just sat down and wrote six reviews over the course of three or four days. Call me crazy; I've never figured out why I write like that. I won't write anything for about a month, and then I'll type like a madman afterwards.

Ack! I'm doing it again. Maybe I should just talk about myself instead of my alter ego... See you around the message boards.

   Congratulations!

This one's one us (the staff). With the rush to get our new template online - there are A LOT of broken links, especially within in the archives. Feel free to harass us concerning this at reviews@rpgamer.com - the sooner we're fully operational, the better.
