My name is Ricky and I’m a Moderator over on the UESP Forums. I just thought I’d bring a touch of the forum life over here to the blog. I’m not even sure what that means, but it sounded good in my head when I signed up for this.
Oh, an introduction? Is that what you want?
Le’see, I’m called Cactus on about 90% of the internet and surprisingly by several people in the real world, too. I’ve been a member of both the wiki and the forums since September 2007. I’ll admit I’m not much of an editor on the wiki, more of a reader, but I’ve fixed my share of typos. I’ve been a Mod since late 2008.
My interests, aside from video games, lie in writing and music. I’ve been writing since I was about 14 and I’ve finally gotten good enough I don’t hate everything I write. I’m still too lazy though. I’ve been playing drums since 2004 or 2005. Until recently I was in a band called Optical Delusion. We released a single album in 2007.
I’m recently (and voluntarily) unemployed in preparation for a rather significant change in my life–I’m moving to Germany to continue my education and hopefully end up as an architect.
I love jumping on bandwagons and looking cool by mimicking others, so I’ll share the games I’ve been playing recently since everyone else did. 😉
This is a rather recent addition to my “current” games. I was obsessed with it for over a year and it finally got old. A new Argonian assassin has rekindled my love for this beautiful game.
This is an obsession that won’t die. I’ve played through it so many times and just as the fire was going out, the DLC came out and I’ve been loving it all over again.
This is a really great game, I think. It really supports creativity. If you don’t have it, get it. The expansions add quite a bit to the game, as well.
I could practically write a post on this game and the series in general. I’ve been absolutely obsessed with Sims games since I played SimCity 2000 on my first computer back in 1998. Since then I’ve played SimCity 3000, SimTower, SimCopter, Streets of SimCity, SimSafari, Sims (and all expansions), Sims 2 (and all expansions) and probably some others I’ve forgotten. It’s like they’ve somehow taken drug addition and packaged it as a computer game. Truth be told I’m probably a bit more passionate, though less obsessed, with this series than Elder Scrolls.

In preparation for my move I’ve been playing this in German. It’s.. not easy.
