Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I wish I had more time to play games, but I only have enough time
to play a couple a month so now I spend a lot more time watching
other people play games and talking about them.
I don't like Battlefield, Black Ops, or FPS games in general.
Pretty much any other genre is cool though. I've just decided
something that's probably controversial: I haven't really enjoyed
any post 2007 Bioware game. They're all so bogged down in pointless
choices and cutscenes. Not that there's anything wrong with a good
story driven game, The Stanley Parable has great writing, Mass
Effect 2 is just boring.
I discovered that I like reading really specific details, people
with lots of broad answers are boring. I tried to match that with
concise, but incredibly specific unique things about me that you
can extrapolate on. If you don't like a brief synopsis, it's not
like padding it out will suddenly make you change your mind.
"Man, I totally didn't care about civil rights before, but after
reading you go on and on about them they're my new favorite
- Nobody ever
Also, I have always owned dogs and plan to continue to.
I guess I need to add that I'm morally opposed to malls and other
brick and mortar shopping centers. Just buy stuff from Amazon. I
don't even know how this is a big deal in 2014 but I've been
meeting so many people who make a really big deal about going to
physical stores instead of buying stuff online. Yeah, if you have
to get something right now it's fine to go to a store, but just
going to stores to hang out every day is weird.
I'm temporarily blind in one eye as doctors figure out the best way
to restore vision to it. If it's a big deal to you, now you know.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Mostly electrical engineering work.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I've built some competitive race cars, maybe you have a car you're
interested in entering races with, I'd like an excuse to build
another. I've built everything from Spec Miata to ASP. I've also
built a high mileage per gallon reliable daily driver. Let me know
if you're into racing, maybe we could collaborate next
This is the most important thing to keep in mind: Complete a budget
for your project first. Then double it. If you don't have that much
cash on hand you don't have enough to even start. I don't care if
you have a turbo, a head, a set of shocks or whatever and you want
to use them as a work in progress, if you can't afford to complete
a project correctly, you can't afford to start it. I don't want to
talk about your hacked together car. Also, if you changed the
exhaust or intake before any engine internals work, sorry about
your terrible life choices.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Freakonomics, TV Carnage, QI, and the Hotline Miami
I'm a fan of pop music.
Pretty much all I read are non fiction technical books because I
like learning stuff. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy is probably
the only fiction book I've enjoyed.
I'm a fan of UCB, Mr. Show, and most of the projects that people
involved in those shows have gone on to do later. QI is the best
show on TV right now.
In general I don't like old media. I'm much more interested in
hearing people talk about games and their experiences in
interacting with them than an account of how someone looked at any
other form of media. Old media is just so boring.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How in an odd way Saints Row 4 is the most wonderfully progressive
game ever produced.
I spend a lot of time thinking about intellectual property rights,
civil liberties and where there might be appropriate balance
between the two. People should be able to make money off of their
work, but people also should be able to do anything for themselves.
It's a complicated line.
Man, New England sure has bad weather.
What's up with all of these people who say they like games and then
claim they don't have Steam accounts? Is piracy that big of a thing
in New England or is everyone in around here just super paranoid
about account hacking?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Building or designing something, maybe driving somewhere.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've played Dark Souls, but I'm not obsessed with it.
I'm really not interested in making an account with and figuring
out how to use Kik or Snapchat or any of those other new messaging
services. I already have enough older messaging services available
to me that work well enough. If that's your plan, sorry.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're regularly up late. I work crazy hours.
If you want to talk about games. Really, like thousands of words
about all aspects of games, from mechanics to storytelling to the
development side. I'm not kidding. A bunch of people have contacted
me and then been surprised by the volume of words I can give them
just about a single verb in a single game. Sure, Activision has
technically acceptable games, but there's nothing really
interesting there. How about LA Noire? Or Deus Ex? Or even Robotron
If you want to play games, I like watching games much more than
watching television or movies.
If you want to actually hang out. I could talk to my friends back
on the west coast if I just wanted to talk to people on the
internet. I want to meet more people who I can do stuff with around
Also if you hate everything Seth Macfarlane or Judd Apatow have
ever done. I can't stand anything either of them has done and it's
fairly rare to find someone who agrees with me so if you do there's
a good chance we have other things in common as well.
Maybe if you own Afrika and want to let me borrow it. That game is
so hard to find now and it's kind of annoying that I haven't played
