bauskephoto.jpgHow would you identify "Bauske?"

There are a few key factors, for certain, but primary among them would be an insatiable interest in video games. From a young age, the boy developed a fascination with the blips and bleeps of the classic arcades, the glowing pixels working together to form shapes and characters on a curved television screen housed inside a cabinet made of wood, paint, buttons, joysticks, and what he could only identify back then as pure magic.

As he grew up, this fascination never left him, and he continued his journey as a gamer with the NES, SNES, N64, PlayStation, and so on and so forth until this very day, where he sits in a small room, his face mere feet away from a monitor flashing with images of a brutish barbarian battling through the minions of Hell in Diablo III.

A few other identifying traits include an interest in art, musical composition, game programming and creation, and a love for the craft of the pixel. He enjoys retro games sometimes in place of modern blockbusters, preferring to jump with precision in Mega Man 2 than sniping across a map in a newly released shooter. Yes, he is an '80s child. Yes, he has a weakness for comedies and particular musical romances. And yes, he sometimes has an unhealthy obsession when it comes to anything Pac-Man related, but he is definitely proud of who he is and what he has become in life, and takes an interest in gaming culture, news, and experiences every day.

He also has no idea why he wrote this in third person.

Welcome to the team, Baus. Noticed a retweet from Jack Devris about ya. Out of curiosity, do you visit GenCon Indy at all?

I live in Indy, so GenCon is there. It's so close. It's RIGHT THERE. Doesn't necessarily mean I get to go though.

Since I work at a retail store that sells video games, most of my coworkers are determined to go to GenCon. Understandably so, but that means that nearly everyone asks for that weekend off, and being a manager, I usually have to suck it up and work because no one else wants to.

Short answer: No, I usually don't go. Wish I could, but it's not often in the cards.

Thanks for the warm welcomes! :D

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
