Well hi there. I guess introductions are in order, I’m Andy Creighton, or ArmlessHobo, whichever you prefer. I’ve been a gamer all my life, it’s my passion. I play games by myself, I play with friends, I talk about games, I argue about games and now I will be writing about games. You, yes you, have the pleasure and delight of reading my musings and ramblings. I know, lucky huh? Within this blog, you will find reviews, features and hopefully previews for Xbox 360 games.
A little about me as a gamer, as though you care. I started when I was the mere age of 6, when, to my surprise, Santa rewarded my good behaviour with a Sega Megadrive and a copy of Street Fighter 2, from that moment onwards I was sold. As a child I rarely went out, opting to try and get past the first level of Desert Strike (harder than it sounds). When I reached my teens, my hobby turned into a full blown passion when I was introduced to the world of online gaming via the PC game Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds, essentially an Age of Empires 2 clone…but with Star Wars! With this grew my love of Real Time Strategies, I’ve played everything from Command & Conquer to Starcraft 2. My dreams of becoming a professional gamer were smashed when I watched my first e-sports event and I realised how good everyone else is, god damn you MLG!
So here I am, at the age of 25, somewhat matured, however my taste in games have remained firmly pubescent. I’m still a lover of fighting games and I thank Street Fighter 4 every day for resurrecting the genre from the grave. And RTS will always have a place in my heart. Well I guess it’s time to stop talking about myself and get back to business, I hope you enjoy my work.
