What is there to say about me? I'm 28 years old and grew up on the southside of Chicago. I work as a Quality Control Chemist/Manager at a foundry company - basically, I make sand core additives to help make better metal castings. I know...it probably makes no sense whatsoever. I got my Bachelor's Degree in chemistry at Notre Dame (GO IRISH!) and just finished up my graduate work for my chem Master's Degree at Illinois State University. I love messing around in Photoshop, rollerblading, snowboarding, and watching sports - my favorite teams/athletes are the Packers (NFL), Cubs (MLB), Blackhawks (NHL), Rush (AFL), and Jeff Gordon (NASCAR). I've also been on staff at the fourth largest anime and video game convention in North America, Anime Central, since 2008. It's been a blast, and I'm looking forward to doing it again this May! Also, if you can't tell by looking at 99.99% of my posts, my favorite color is blue - YAY BLUE!!!!
In terms of gaming, I've been at it for over 20 years. My first game was Pong, and my first system was an Atari. A favorite game of mine as a kid was Oregon Trail on the Apple II...even today I play it (in all of it's 8-bit-quality graphics/sound glory) on an emulator. Farmers from Illinois FTW! However, my favorite game of all-time is the awesome Xenogears on the PS1, and RPGs in general will always be #1 to me. Other than that, I used to compete in Soul Calibur II, Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Dance Dance Revolution, but gave that up to focus more on school. I still do small tournaments here and there, but no where near as much as I used to. Today, I play a little bit of everything. My only exception is that I hate third-person shooters that aren't in the Gears franchise. I don't know...I just can't stand the third-person perspective. Otherwise, I like just about everything! Oh - one more thing! My gaming name, Asuka424, comes from two things: 4/24 is my birthday, and Asuka is a nickname I've had since early on in high school. Asuka is one of the main characters from the anime Neon Genesis Evangelion - not only do we have the same hair color, but our personalities are nearly identical!
I really liked the first game, so I got this as soon as I could. Although there are a few annoying trophies in this game, there isn't anything that is terribly challenging. I just wish the game was longer than it turned out to be.
Getting to level 50 (as most people would say) was the most annoying thing to do in this game. Although this is more of a "journey is more important than the destination" game, it was still pretty fun. Even now I'm still playing the DLC for this game!
All I'm going to say is to blame this trophy on a Site Competition. Seriously...let's just back away slowly, don't make eye contact, and pretend this one isn't here. We'll forget this ever happened and go on with our merry ways. See? That wasn't hard, now was it...? Oh look - a distraction!
