Welcome to my blog my humble reader.
If there’s anything you find interesting or funny why not taking some time to comment?
Still under development, well… actually I’m still thinking on what to do here, maybe I’ll just go random in here and tell you a bit about myself.
My name is Alexandre also known as XtremeFlash, SynysterStrife, BakemonoSamurai and some even call me Alex or Xandre but let’s keep it as XtremeFlash, thank you. I’m Portuguese, from Portugal. Right next to Spain on the European continent. I’m currently 18 years old, born on the 21st September.
I’m done with school, finished 12th grade and I’m hoping to attend university this year. Engineering and Development of Digital Games I hope. It’s a new course here and I always thought this was created purposely for me since I’ve always wanted to learn programming and to get into the video games industry. If I could, I’d work at Square Enix, or maybe, Lionhead!
I’ve been into gaming since the Master System II ages. I still have it and it just bring me good memories of the old times. Sonic the Hedgehog, Jurassic Park, Alex the Kidd, and a lot o other platform games. Just thinking about me gives me the chills. Then I bought my first Playstation and my first game was Hercules. It was ok and fun. Hercules and all the roman mythology amuse me a lot! But, my second game was Final Fantasy VII and GOD I love that game. Its my favorite game ever and I’ve played it countless times. I recently bought a Xbox 360, (well… I’ve got it for two years now) and you can find me there most of the time playing Call of Duty 4 or Halo 3.
I also like to play Guitar Hero, to bad my 360 controller is broken and I can’t play it anymore, but I can say that I’m good at it. Been into a couple national tournaments, and I got 1st placed a couple times. This were the Guitar Hero III times, now I think Harmonix and Redoctane just keep doing these games for their sake otherwise they’ll go bankrupt.
Guitar Hero 5 seems interesting and the track list is suberb, and I always pick the games for their soundtrack!
I also like to play World of Warcraft. Currently I play on private server (sorry Blizzard) as I still don’t have any methods to get money and pay for the monthly subscription.
I’m into Anime and Manga as well. I’ve watched Dragon Ball and Rurouni Kenshin when I was little and that turned meinto an otaku later when I re-watched Neon Genesis Evangelion, influenced by some of my friends and it turned into a rolling snow ball. I began to watch more and more anime shows, from Naruto, Full Metal Alchemist, Elfen Lied, Bleach and the list goes on.
From all that I’ve seen, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is my favorite show and I just can’t think of any better than that. I’m also a Bleach fan, and other of my favorite shows are Hajime no Ippo, One Outs and Darker than BLACK.
You can also find my MyAnimeList account on the right sidebar, for more info click the link.
I’m also addicted to music. There ain’t a single day I don’t listen less than 5 or 6 hours to music. I’ve got a Turtle Beach X1 for my daily gaming, and when I’m on my computer I set it up and listen to Metal, Rock, Drum ‘N’ Bass, Soundtracks, a little bit of everything.
My favorite band is Avenged Sevenfold but I also love Muse, Bullet for My Valentine, TOOL, Nine Inch Nails, Andy Hunter and I could fill the list with more and more but I’ll just spare you from reading them. Just visit my last.FM account on the right sidebar for more info.
I also play guitar from time to time. Its a Fender replica, I bought just for fun and to pratice a couple songs. If I could, i’d buy an Ibanez RG5EX1Electric Guitar but I wouldn’t mind an semi-acoustic guitar with steeled strings.
I also like art, though my inspiration comes all from digital design. I’ve been using Photoshop for more than 2 years already, probably 3, and I keep using it everyday and learning new things to do. From userbars to web layouts, I try a lot of things and I like what I do and I hope to improve and apply it to programming and even work as a freelancer.
And that’s all for now, with time you’ll learn more about me, and I’ll also teach you more about other things.
To those who are reading this, I sincerely shake your hand for wasting your time with me.
