My name is Catherine (or just simply Cat) and I am from near Chicago, Illinois. I've been playing video games since I was old enough to covet my neighbor's NES (people were much more interesting once they got one for Christmas, weren't they?). I am the Program Coordinator/QIDP of a nonprofit organization that provides homes for developmentally disabled adults. In my spare time I love to write about my passions, including video games, soccer (Arsenal or bust), and BBC dramas. My husband is an artist; you may have met us before if you've ever been to the Artist Alley at Anime Central!
Final Fantasy IV, VI, VII, IX, X, any Legend of Zelda game, Metroid Prime Series, Assassins' Creed Black Flag, Assassins' Creed Rouge, Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, Super Paper Mario, Super Mario 3, the Uncharted Series, Donkey Kong 64, FIFA, Animal Crossing New Leaf, and probably about a thousand more! I am terrible at first person shooters, but I try. I really, really try. You do not want me on your clan. I got a ghillie suit in COD: Ghosts because I am a coward.
Muse is my favorite non-video game music. I was lucky enough to meet the great Nobou Uematsu and have his signature tattooed on my arm.

Stick figure parkour.
One of my favorite things about being a gamer is that most games expect me to assume an identity outside of myself; someone or something that is capable of amazing and impossible feats, powers or talents that are beyond anything I will ever grasp in my actual life. N++, the platformer sequel to the popular N and N+ games, bestows a unique new persona upon us: you are a ninja with an accelerated metabolism. You are able to use momentum to run, jump, climb, collect and pass through a series of five levels like a boss. What’s the catch? Your lifespan is only 90 seconds.
