Yes I played Ingress for a while, IGN: Thor. I am now retired (yes a second time). I don't have the time or money to play the game anymore. Also, when I did play, I tended to get a bit obsessed and spent a lot of time playing. I just don't have that kind of time anymore. I made quite a few friends in my time playing, and I still interact somewhat regularly here on G+ with the Chicago community. Please don't take my interaction as a sign I'm starting to play the game again. I do not intend to.
I'm a gamer. I love games...it is interactive storytelling. I play from my couch. I play on both my Gaming PC as well as on Consoles. I currently own a PS4 and a PS3. I haven't seen the need to buy an XBox One yet. I just see more exclusives that I care about on the Playstation side these days. I'm tired of the PC/Console war. Each has it's merits.
I'm more a fan of Scifi than Fantasy...but either will do so long as the story is good enough. I love epic storylines.
I love gadgets. I put up with Apple for a few years as an iPhone user before dropping it completely and starting over with Android...and I haven't looked back since. I'm now convinced that pure Android is the way to go after having dealt with a few non-pure devices.
Though I've tried Linux, it never stuck with me. I've always been a Windows guy.
I mentioned before that play Scifi and Fantasy games, well I also love movies and TV in those genres. I'm a Trekkie (DS9 is my favorite), Whovian (Tennant followed by Smith of the new Who, Baker in third from Classic Who), Browncoat, and a fan of Star Wars (I love the original 3, and like the prequels, they could have been done better but aren't worthless). Those are my big 4 but I'm certainly not limited to those. I'm also a fan of The Walking Dead (almost completely up-to-date on the comic), Breaking Bad, Game Of Thrones (have read through 5 at this point), Burn Notice, Fringe, Family Guy, and Futurama, among many others.
I'm a dog lover, but I find Catruday posts just as amusing...I just don't like living with cats. In June 2013, I rescued my own dog for the first time. I've lived and loved a few dogs in the past, but this is my first since moving out of my dad's house after graduating. I got him from a local rescue, who is brought him up from the area around Moore, Oklahoma. He was found wandering without ID after the EF5 Tornado hit Moore on May 20th, 2013. In my spare time I help out the rescue I got him from, by doing any web work they need to have done.
I don't post a lot, but I do share on occasion, but only with my circles. I don't get real political or religious on here, as I like to enjoy my time on G+.
If you fill my stream with partisan politics or religion, expect to be blocked. I can tolerate Right-Wing politics more than Left-Wing (I consider myself a Libertarian)...but even then I have my limits. I just don't enjoy discussing politics or religion. I stick to the policy that it is impolite to discuss those topics in public. Keep it to your circles/communities people.
To anyone adding me hoping that I will add them back: I will only do so if I find what you post (either through your profile or your comments) interesting. I do not auto-add back and I usually don't review who adds me...but I thank you for adding me anyway. I hope you enjoy what I contribute. :)
