My name’s Tahani Nelson and I’m incredibly excited to be part of things here at Geek Embassy. For what it’s worth, I’m more of a Jack-of-All-Trades-Master-of-None sort of Geek—I’ve dabbled in almost everything to some degree, though there’s no particular thing that I know about more than anyone else. I actually prefer it this way, because there’s always something more to learn. My favorite geeky pursuitsRead More →

Hello!  My name is Dante and if you didn’t have to Google the reference in my article title, then I want to be your friend. I’ve been interested in geeky stuff my whole life, and love talking about it to practically anyone who has ears.  I grew up playing Super Mario Bros and Sonic the Hedgehog because everyone was playing them, but the real turning point in my life came from a fateful trip to the local Pizza Hut; this marks the only time you’ll ever hear me say that I am glad that I ate at Pizza Hut.  They were sponsoring X-Men: The Animated Series atRead More →

Hi there! I’m Mark. I want to introduce myself and give you my credentials. In short, what makes me qualified to be an ambassador on the Geek Embassy. Like most people, my interests are varied and I have several hobbies that I can talk about. Let me walk you through what sort of things you’ll most likely be seeing from me in the future. My first love growing up was music. The first LP that I ever received was “Destroyer” by Kiss at the tender age of 5. It was in my Easter basket of all things! I still haven’t figured out if this was an incrediblyRead More →

Hi! My name is Isabela and I’m the intern here at Game on Girl. I help out with some of the behind the scenes stuff on the site and with the podcast. My introduction to gaming was when I was eight, when my parents bought a Nintendo 64 for my brother. My younger brother and I obsessively played the three games we had: Donkey Kong 64, Mario Kart 64, and Star Wars Episode I: Racer. I may be terrible at them, but I still get nostalgic playing racing games. I still have the ol’ gal and she still works great. The same can’t be saidRead More →

Regina has graciously invited me to share some of my thoughts on gaming as a Mom – and in general (I hope) – so I thought I should start by explaining briefly how I got here. My introduction to game culture and serious gaming began in 2011.  I had 3 kids – a 9 month old, a 3 year old, and a 5 year old – and was doing a bit of editing on the side.   I played some Wii games with my husband, but our daughter had taken over the DS and my online/computer gaming was basically limited to Facebook games.  My husband toldRead More →

Hello.  My name is Mark Schjoll.  Yes, that Mark – Regina’s friend Mark.  But, enough about my name. Here’s a bit about my gaming “cred”.  I started playing games as a kid, as most kids do.  However, early on, one of my uncles and a grandfather taught me how to play poker.  I think that’s what started it all.  Then, around the time of my adolescence, there was D&D.  After high school I got into playing Battle Tech, Magic: The Gathering and Vampire: The Masquerade. To this day I still play all sorts of games. This does not tell the whole story though. I alsoRead More →

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I’m a Gamer.  It started so innocently… I guess you could say that TCGs were my Gateway drug, and they weren’t even my cards (they were my son’s).  After the Pokemon cards and the Magic cards came the Lord of the Rings cards, which led us to looking for other games based on JRR Tolkien’s Middle-earth.  And lo and behold, there was a game in development that fit the bill:  Middle-Earth Online. That’s when I really went under.  For three years, I was community manager for MeoSource, a fansite supporting the development of Turbine’s Middle-Earth Online, later to becomeRead More →
