Hi! Trying out blogging for the first time...so bear with my n00biness...
Welcome to thirdworldgamer.blogspot.com. Who am I and what is this blog all about?
I'm a gamer...a guy who likes video games of various types. This blog will be about my thoughts on the gaming industry, computer and video gaming in general, and sometimes---about gaming in the third world.
That's right. The THIRD WORLD.
Okay, to be fair, it's about gaming in MY PART OF THE WORLD. I have no idea how gaming is like in the deserts of Africa....
But I didn't want to name my blog philippinegamer.blogspot.com or pinoygamer.blogspot.com or anything obvious like that that just gives away my nationality. If you follow this blog for the next few months (and hopefully years if i never get lazy on updating this) you'll be able to piece together why that is. I don't want to come on too strong on my first blog post (is that what people call a post on a blog? Sheesh I'm such a n00b!)
I'm writing this from way out here in the Republic of the Philippines. A country which many of you have probably never heard of. Or, if you've already heard of this place, you probably think it's some kind of haven for Al Quaida terrorists (given the wonderful coverage the press has given to one of the more famous terrorist groups that have taken 'refuge' here, the Abu Sayyaf).
Anyway I hope that my insights on the gaming industry and my anecdotes on gaming in my part of the world will bring endless entertainment to other gamers around the world.
See you around!
