I realised that I've spoken to John and Alice a fair bit since I started here but I haven't really spoken to anyone else. So I thought I'd introduce myself and get to know people. Anyway here it goes… My name is Sam Morpeth and I'm from Newcastle in the north-east of England. I've recently graduated from university and managed to get myself a degree in English Literature which is very nice indeed. I've also recently returned from a 3 month trip across the USA travelling and voluntary work on farms.
Obviously I'm enchanted with gaming (otherwise I wouldn't be here), but I tend to focus on online gaming at the moment. I'll give you a list of a few of my favourite games and you can judge me accordingly: World of Warcraft, Uncharted 3, Journey, The Warriors, Halo:CE, Crash Bandicoot 3 and many more.
My other hobbies include attempting to learn guitar and not doing very well. I'm also trying to teach myself Spanish and that's going alright.

Good idea, I've been here for a while and I don't really know many of the newer writers all that well. So pending you all being internet PI's with mad doxxing skills I assume you don't know me either…
My name is quite obviously Patrick Birchall, not Steve as I've managed to make people think before… Long story… Just about to go for my third and final year at uni (though it's actually my 4th thanks to some medical issues. and a course change). Hopefully ending up with a degree in ICT and Business so I can do lunch with people called Clive from Marketing and shoot from the hip whilst talking about the big picture and touching base with our consumers. It's quite boring.
I originally hail from the North-West of England, a smoky little pit of despair called Warrington but I spend most of the year at uni in (not so) sunny Wales. When not studying like a fiend for exams I can be found playing games and mocking the afflicted whilst enjoying a fine whiskey. My favourite games are: WoW (even though I don't play any more), Borderlands, Just Cause 2, Saints Row 1/2/3, Infinity Engine games (Baldur's Gate etc) and Bioshock.
When not gaming, I dispel that persistent nerd myth by going outside and *gasp* engaging in physical activities! Most often trying not to look down whilst climbing mountains or poking around old abandoned buildings taking photos. I also play a few musical instruments at varying levels ranging from being pretty decent with a guitar to just learning the piano.

Well it's nice to meet you Patrick! Glad to have another northerner in here with me. Although, being a Geordie we're very protective of who we classify as actual northerners. I'm glad to see you're finally in your last year of university. I'm still yet to have my actual graduation ceremony so I'm still clinging onto my childhood. I'll tell you one thing: as boring as your degree might be you better enjoy it while it lasts. I'd give anything to be back at university and I've only been finished with it for just over 4 months now.
Did you play WoW pre-TBC? And what classes/races did you play? I don't actually play it anymore it just holds a lot of great memories for me. I spent about 4 years playing it and then another year or so playing it on and off. I'm guessing you're incredibly excited for Borderlands 2 then? I really am too but I'm kind of semi-unemployed atm so I can't really justify buying it when I've just bought Guild Wars 2.
Yeah, I've recently been taking walks and I've made plans to climb Scaffel Pike and maybe eventually Ben Nevis too. While I wouldn't say I've got a HUGE love of the outdoors I'm certainly warming up to them. What kind of music do you listen to/play? And how long have you been playing guitar?

I played from Vanilla up to just after Firelands was released in Cata, sporadically not the whole time. In the end I had 3 85's A Draenei Shaman, Death Knight and a Human Hunter. I can't wait for Borderlands 2 but I have to, I can't afford it until my birthday D:
I haven't climbed either of those actually, done Snowdon more than enough times though because I go to uni about 15 mins away. I listen to pretty much everything and anything save for that manufactured tween pop shit. If music comes from within then it's usually good no matter the style/genre, music written to make money always sounds a bit hollow to me. Been playing guitar for coming up to 9 years, mostly play a lot of blues with the odd sprinkling of extreme metal.
