Thank you for coming to Casual Aggro. My name is Mike but please call me Ocho. Ocholivis was the name of my first World of Warcraft character that I now use across all games. By the way, I do NOT write for a living. Gaming is my primary hobby and I’ve been playing games of all types for as long as I can remember all the way back to the Atari 2600. I still consider Mission: Impossible for the Atari one of the hardest games I’ve ever played. I’m a fan of all styles of games, but generally tend to gravitate toward MMORPGs, RPGs, First Person Shooters, Strategy, Adventure, and Real Time Strategy. My Steam library is kinda ridiculous. My first real PC game was Ultima VI, and to this day, although I’ve never been a fan of Ultima Online, I’m a huge fan of the Ultima series. My first MMO was, like a lot of people, World of Warcraft. I started playing the game in December of 2004 soon after it released and played it for much longer than I care to admit. Now, I play many games of many styles and will jump from game to game, genre to genre, but I love MMOs more than any other type.
MMOs I currently play: Guild Wars, Lord of the Rings Online, Guild Wars 2, Dungeons and Dragons Online, and Star Trek Online.
Random facts about me: I have an overweight cat named Mabe. I LOVE pop rock from the 90’s and can never pass up cranking Gin Blossoms. Other favorite bands include Barenaked Ladies and Moxy Fruvous. I’m a fan of baseball (Go Phillies!), playing Ultimate Frisbee, theater and musicals, wine festivals, following gaming and tech blogs, reading, physics, the universe, and fixing and building PCs.
If you have any suggestions or complaints or would like to get in touch with me, please do.
