Good morning, afternoon, or night, depending upon the time you are sitting down to read this. Or, standing up on a crowded bus, checking blogs on your iPhone or Blackberry or whatever new doohickey you all use these days. Maybe you’re at home, or a local library, or a coffee shop, enjoying the benefit of free wireless access.

See, the thing about the internet and the modern world, is that you never know who is going to be reading your content, as well as the context of their reading, and the individual themself. Really, its a very vulnerable thing, a blog. However, Avery and I are here to expose ourselves. We are going to try to tell our story, share our thoughts, our feelings, and most likely our frustrations as well. By reading this blog, I do not promise to provide insight, or wisdom. I do not promise it will have the usual dose of snark or sharp wit that keeps the masses entertained. Nor will I ever say an unfair criticism of another individual or group. (Which is not to be confused with fair criticism). So let me make it clear; this is a blog about video games, as an industry, as an art, and our progress in trying to make one. We are not video game critics, and while I will often make comments about trends or games individually, its not with the purpose of being cruel; of luring in readings and commenters by breaking down a piece of art that I had no part in making.

I merely want to make my intentions clear. So now that we know all the things I won’t be doing, what precisely will I be doing? I will be providing my opinion on games, trends in gaming, individuals in gaming, as well as general writing/story ideas, thoughts, tips, and reviews on books, movies, and games as they relate to a particular point. I will also probably be singing the praises of my partner, Avery Tingle, from time to time.

Moving on, now, to the actual point of this particular post. To introduce myself to the readers, let you know who I am and what precisely I am up to.

My username is jsnf. That is because my name is Jacob Steven Nicholson-Fitzgerald. I am the President and Co-Founder of Modern Magic Enterprises. I am also one of the creative writers, though that title may or may not be official. In any case, I am one of the forces behind Modern Magic’s current project, Flight 271, and the primary force behind the sequel, Survival Instinct.

I am nineteen years old, with a science fiction novel currently on the backburner while I work two part time jobs and get myself through college, majoring in Multimedia Design. With only one day a week off (which is usually spent with the girlfriend, which really doesn’t count as a day off), the majority of my posts will be written late at night; tonight’s 4 am draft tonight is evidence of that. So if you get lost in the cornucopia of words, don’t blame yourself.

Basic information covered, I think that’ll do for this post. I thank you for your patience and your time, and I hope you enjoy reading along with us as we try to find our way along this winding path.
