Oh, you want a little more detail, ok I can do that. I love comics, reading- mainly Sci-Fi and Fantasy as real life is full enough of factual things; I prefer my escapism. Also Manga, movies, board games, CCG's, and Roleplaying. Not that kind of roleplaying, you have a filthy mind, well at least not just that kind of roleplaying, tabletop and Live Action too. I've run a Live action roleplaying game for the better part of 20 years now so I guess I must enjoy it, either that or I'm a glutton for punishment. Gaming, do I do gaming, yes, yes indeed I do. Probably started with the Game and Watch hand held games systems and progressed from there into a full blown addiction. First computer was a Vic 20, I played Blitz solidly for a couple of hours until I flattened the city and the little man got of the plane and waved at me. Spectrum, check, first 48k the the 128; next an amiga and eventually a PC, playing X-wing for the first time blew me away. Of course I'm a star wars Fan. Next consoles, sure I;ve played them all but didnt own my own until the original Playstation was given to me by my friends at university for my birthday. First thing I did was go straight across the road to Blockbuster and purchase final Fantasy XII. I think it was at least a week later before I surfaced for air after putting that disk in the machine. Playstation 2 - of course, xbox - indeed,  gamecube -couldn't miss out on Golden Eye, PSP - Check, Playstion3, Xbox 360, Wii, PS Vita, and Xbone, you goot catch em all. Still missing a PS4 and Wii U, but hey, one day they will be mine, oh yes, they will be mine. Also being born and raised in Blackpool I did the arcades; and I mean a lot. Pac-man, Galaga, Galaxians, Space Invaders, Smash TV, Guantlet, 1942, 1943 and the rest. I do love me some retro gaming.

Now I'm a Divorcee and Father of two wonderful children, Nate and Lily. I'm really lucky, I have just shy of 50/50 custody, so though it breaks my heart when they aren't with me it does give me a whole bunch of time for my gaming and other geeky pursuits.

Think that just about covers it, oh one final note, I'm easily distracted...(Rammy notices something flashing over the other side of the room and wanders off)
