Now I’ve decided to enter to a place unknown by some or rarely have a clue about what girls think about being in the gaming world…

From the start I’ll worn you that I don’t identify myselgf as a gamer, coz I really don’t play that much, but I can be sure that I’m good at what a play…WELL THEN LETS GET READY TO RUMBLE

All gamers know for a fact that we lovely ladies are now getting into the gaming fandom, we have left our little dolls for joysticks…In my childhood years I would play Nintendo (remember guys? Mario Bros), but I was not into it 24/7. Now I’ve been more attached toplaying only  (If you can say it that way…) and for me it quite interesting and entertaining, so I will tell you all what it was for me from start to finish.

Adventures of a Girl Gamer, 1, 2, 3, Action:

  • At first a wanted to get more in touch with my boyfriend and started to find games online to play with him, so that way we I could share something that he love with him…(Although he never did believe me…) So as I started looking for games for mac (yeah I have a mac, damn) I came across with Spiral Knights, it was nice to see that it reminded me of my childhood games and its so darn cute *o*.
  • As I got familiar with it (Oh hell no I ain’t using no WASD, I will stick to the mouse settings muahahaha), I got to know the community, made new friends, got invited to a guild, all was nice and calm.
  • I played with so many guys, some of them helped me a lot. some of them when they knew I was a girl totally trolled me a lot and others were suprised.
  • As son as I got better and wasn’t called a NOOB, some of the nice guys I used o played with would invite me to some missions, others would think I was a guy or gay how how girly I looked, others would come at me and ask many question to get to know me and others thought that I was trying to get some free stuff saying that I was a girl (Not that I didn’t take avantage from time to time, but I’m really not that sneaky).
  • It came to a time where anywhere I would go in the game I would be noticed, everyone would say hi and even try to my ciber boyfriends, some 13-17 year old kids would swag there way to my heart (So they thought) and I in some point would walk away from all of it, really I’m way older to be interested in kids (Give me a break, god!)
  • I turn back the clock and I saw myself minding my own bussiness, being alone with my persona and now I’ve become the most popular girl in the game.

Don’t get me wrong, I like all the attention and it’s cool to me notice, but really sometime it’s just way too much, If only I would have said from the beginning that I was  guy and not a girl, it would have probably be less tiring trying to decide with what guys to play…It’s just crazy, but I have my methods and technics. It doesn’t surprise me now that at any momento some random guy would tell me:

  1. Do you have a boyfriend? Do you have a boyfriend in the game. Be my girlfriend…
  2. I’m a minor, but can you wait for me till I’m older…
  3. I will fly to your country to meet you right now.
  4. Why are you playing with him?
  5. I like you, I love you, I want you, be with me…

Etc, etc…and the list goes on, but in reality, in the end we girls have such much to gain tan to lose, but its still bothersome sometimes.

P.S.: Gamers, guys, chillax, take it slow, not all the girls with dig the intensity of your ways, we girls just wanna have fun! Peace out!

The Noob Factor…

First of all…Sorry to all my follower for not posting in a really really reaallyyyy long time! T_T

Most fo you guys can tell this is a post were a write about my point of view about the word “NOOB“, some people hate it, some people enjoy saying it and others don’t give a %$·%…

The main thing is I never actually knew where or when this word come out to the world, just recently I discovered a WHOLE NEW WORLD WITH…(Aladdin’s song), ok ok I’ll get to the point…I don’t know if you guys know, but I started to get much more closer to my gamer side…(If you know what I mean?, WAIT there is nothing wrong with that, “cough-cough” anyway…) and well I’m getting to notice that the word noob is just don’t make sense sometimes:

These are my top 5 explaining why “Noob” is just plain whack!:

  1. Just because you are beginning to learn a game online doesn’t mean your noob, really? even if you are a pro gamer en other games, you just don’t know a bloody hell what’s going on in a new game…
  2. Some people find saying noob offensive, I believe it is, because of what it really means. Others started to categorized by dividing it in “noob” and “noobster”, the first one being barely bad and the last one is when your the worst. In the end your just saying the same damn thing (you know you are!)
  3. If being noob is being bad at games, then why do the worst players around call you noob when you the one kicking their butts…once again the word becomes an insult for those who don’t have imagination or nothing to say…
  4. As I was investigating some definitions of the word “noob” was so ridiculously out of order that made me doubt the whole purpose of gaming…They actually say and I quote “Noobs are pros that don’t give a $·%” about the game, so they use strange names and make other do everything for them…” WTF! Holy lord, What is this sorcery?! O.O After all these years and I thought everybody wanted to win at everything…I was wrong!
  5. And last but not least, as you all know you start to not care about it and just go with it, because after all it simply doesn’t make sense, so why care about it, right?

    *So if you want to comment on the post, tell me what you think about “noobs”

    P.S.: Just don’t take it too serious, have fun and play whatever you like, the is always a first for everybody! Peace OUT!
