[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.
