    Greetings! Or not.

    GREETINGS.

    I have been reading articles about games and game design and naturally, this brought me to this website. After a scan, I saw the forums and decided to learn more through actual gamers themselves.

    -Introducing me, Calvin the wannabe designer.
    -I am 21 years old, from Mountain View, CA.
    -I am of Asian descent. I suck at math.
    -I dropped out of college to start a mobile game company. That is what I currently do.

    When I'm not sweating balls trying to figure out how to make ends meet, I like to play games. Some of my favorites are:

    Dance Dance Revolution
    Starcraft 2
    Counter Strike
    XCOM
    Dota, Dota 2
    HoN
    LoL
    FTL
    Binding of Isaac
    Super Mario, Legend of the Fallen Star
    Chrono Trigger
    The Pokemon series up til Diamond
    Street Fighter series from super turbo to 4
    Drummania

    From this list, you can see I wasn't lying about the Asian part.

    So yeah, thats me. An avid gamer that decided to turn it into a career. Or attempt to.

    Cheers to all,

    Calvin

    Nice intro, Calvin. I suck at math too, but I'm white so it's more socially acceptable.

    White people who can't math are the worst kind of white.

    Am I the only one who laughed at "I'm of Asian descent" and the first two games on his list were DDR and Starcraft? I can't be the only one...

    Stereotypes aside, it's a decent intro. Welcome to the forums.

    Oh no. I laughed, on the inside. Because that's where racism belongs. Buried deep, deep down in your soul.

    Psh, racism, what a joke. I laugh at it all, as is intended. If the universe didn't have a sense of humor, irony wouldn't exist to the rampant degree with which it does.

    I laughed at you laughing. It's a loop now.

    We're trying to make a combination of mass effect, world of warcraft, and clash of clans

    Its a secret mix and I hope I can get a lot of feedback from this forum, as this is a game by gamers for gamers.

    Reading this thread title, I started out excited, but then all of a sudden I wasn't. Way to toy with my emotions.

    Mountain View! I know where that is!

    I'm not of Asian descent and I'm (was) good at math.

    Welcome!

    I'm curious, is there a badge for having too many badges? If so, I would like to formally nominate Ol' Jon for just such an honor.

    Are you he who is without sin? No, I didn't think so!

    Welcome Calvin!

    You could certainly discuss your game/company in places like The Arcade thread. I'm hesitant to say "Make a thread!", until your presence is a little more familiar, but the Arcade is a great place to start. Someone can correct me. I can be terrible sometimes.

    It's ok, I've thrown stones at her before.
