I’m a writer, yes, but I’m also an avid gamer (mostly PS4 and PS3) and as such I like to support the gaming community when I can. So, here’s a promotional blog for General Andrews Gaming…
Hi there! I’m known as General Andrews Gaming. I’m a 30 year old gamer with over 26 years gaming experience under my belt. I guess you could say I started very early! I started on the Atari and any arcade machine I could throw my nickels and quarters at (yes, there really was a time when there used to be nickel arcades!). I quickly moved on to NES, Gameboy, SNES, Sega, Sega Genesis, N64, Sega Dreamcast, Playstation 1, 2, 3, 4, Wii, Xbox, Xbox360, and now my much coveted CPU. There isn’t much I haven’t played on over the years.
My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger – an RPG released by Square (now Square Enix) on the SNES way back in 1995. This is closely followed by Final Fantasy 3 (US version, also known as FF6). I am a lover of role-playing games but right now I find myself addicted to MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arenas) and Chess – especially variants like Atomic Chess and Anti Chess.
I love live streaming on Twitch and gaming for hours and hours on end, but don’t make the mistake of thinking that’s all I do! Far from it – I have been a personal trainer for over 6 years, and even ran a gym for over a year as well. As a health and fitness professional I do the proper proactive and reactive measures to supplement my love for gaming. I like to encourage others to experience a healthy lifestyle as well, and as such I will constantly address health questions and concerns both on my blog and during my streams.
As a thank you to all my new followers (and loyal followers too!) on my Twitch channel, I like to do a 24 hour live stream whenever I reach a follower level-up target (details on my Twitch channel info). I have recently reached another milestone, and as a result I will be starting a 24 hour live stream at 11:55pm PST on Sunday 21st June. The stream will last, surprisingly enough, for a full 24 hours! During my 24 hour streams I do regular give-aways, the only stipulations being that you follow my channel, and are willing to accept the prize if won. You don’t have to watch for the full 24 hours to be eligible to enter, so why not drop by, say hi, and have a good time? I’d love to see you there.
Thank you, and I hope to see you soon!
