It's time to heat things up!

Ever since I began searching for gaming communities two years ago, I've been looking forward to the day when I could finally join TAG (no joke). I turned 21 on Friday, the 15th; I registered Saturday; now it's time to post!

Videogames have always been a part of my life, yet I didn't become a hardcore gamer until Fall 2004. My love of gaming began with Saturday afternoons as a kid on the NES, watching my mom kick tail on Super Mario Bros and secretly wishing I could be as good as her. My younger brother was always the "gamer," so he decided the consoles we owned: N64, PS2, Xbox. I played each one and had a favorite game or two, but it took a few weekends of returning home from college before I committed to the Xbox. After a few Friday nights of telling my dad about my week, watching him play GR2, and listening to his clan mates enjoy the experience, I set my hand to the Xbox controller and eventually fell in love. Our latest console, a 360, is mine. Granted, I've been a good sister and daughter to leave it at home during my semesters away at school, but I know I scared my mother (she's not as hardcore anymore as the rest of us) when I laughed/cried upon receiving that stellar birthday gift. Gaming has always been an exciting family affair to me, one of split-screen ownage and afternoons confusing XBL with comments like, "Dad, I'm gonna kill you!" After enjoying LMS matches with his clan (Delta Force 155) and "you're getting better than your dad!" comments, I had my "coming of age" gaming experience: I ventured alone into XBL and found my own clan, Renegade X.

My dad is FireSlayer104, so from the very beginning, my GTs have been an extension of him: Miss Fireslayer, RX Miss Fire, RX MissFire615 (I was living off free 2-month cards for awhile), RX MissFire86, and currently DC MissFire.

Now, as DC MissFire, I've left competitive gaming by choice and joined the Digital Combat staff. I'm forum admin and co-hostess of the DC Radio Show (besides weekly podcasts, we just started weekly roundtables!); I loved the DC community, so it was only natural for me to join the staff. I'm also a freelance writer for The Blue Skittle, which is just one step away from my "real" self. I'm an senior English major, writer, and lover of all things grammar/literature-related; I'm a LOTR and HP fan, the DC Google queen, enjoy sharing my faith with others, and secretly (well, not anymore) hanker for Scott Mitchell.

Yes, this is long, but hey... I'm a writer! What did you expect? :)

Nice intro; although, I found a grammar mistake in paragraph two, sentence three.

HA HA HA - just kidding! :) Welcome to TAG!
