About this blog
I’m a gamer and I like having a platform to talk about my experiences in the games I play. Flamingbard isn’t here to break or even cover news as there are so many other gaming sites that do just that and do it well. I just like to gab and hope to connect to other gamers while doing so. It’s a win-win for me!
I play a lot of games but the MMO I played the longest was LotRO. I started playing LotRO during a stress test in closed beta (January 22nd, 2007) and have had my eyes opened to the world of J.R.R. Tolkien because of it. I’ve watched the movies several times since starting to play (had never seen them prior) and should be starting the books soon. I have Rift and Guild Wars 2 but am a bit turned off on MMOs right now so I’m diving head first into a lot of Indie games and having a BLAST doing so!
I think I’m headed back to console games as I have a TON of 360 and a few Wii U games I haven’t finished, some I haven’t even scratched the surface in! (<—- Skyrim, anyone?)
OH! Donkey Kong! I remember playing DK on a Commodore 64 at my best friend’s house when I was in 6th grade and just falling in love with the big ape. He will always be my go-to favorite game and I’m still working my way through Donkey Kong Country Returns. (DKCR was stolen before I could finish [RE: get very far] so I’m now impatiently waiting for DK:Tropical Freeze to release this fall!!!)
I should note that I blog in what I call a conversational style. That’s code for ‘grammar errors abound and I don’t care’. (code, my excuse, you get the picture) If this bothers you I completely understand. I like to think of blogging as conversations around a table as we all drink our coffee. Feel free to comment, would love to hear from you!
