All About tiggerboy
Hi. You can call me whatever you want, as long as its either Sean or tiggerboy. I love videogames, my wife, and my dog Chloe. In that order. I also like dumb jokes, anything funny, and collecting anything that has to do with videogames. If you are not into those things then GET THE HELL OUT OF MY BLOG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well guys, the time has come. I have been pretty much absent from blogging here on Gamespot for a few months now, and the last blog rendered 0 comments.
I have a lot of history with Gamespot. I chose to become a member in 2003 for one main reason which was the game tourneys. I was a big fan of them then and loved competing. I did not know at the time that this site was so full of awesome people, from the other guests and members, to the staff themselves.
But one day the tournaments stopped happening, and so I decided to start blogging on here. Mostly just about video games, and when everyone started getting involved in the conversation it became clear that I belonged in the game community. There were so many people that shared the same passion for gaming that I did!
I made many friends here on Gamespot. Rather than point all of you out, you all know who I am talking about. We had community game nights with the XBL Gamers Union which was always fun!
But, times began changing for me. In fact, here are some highlights that happened in my life while I was a member:
- Bought my first home
- Got my first new car ever
- Married my dream girl
- bought my second home
- started, and finished college
- and now, have began the process of adopting our first child
That's quite a list of things! Gamespot and its awesome community was there the whole way. So thanks for being my online support guys!
Do not get this confused as a goodbye letter, you can always send me a message on Xbox Live or facebook (http://www.facebook.com/sean.taylor.1612) anytime! This is just a letter to let everyone who happens to stumble upon my account to know whats going on.
So here we are today.
I am a graduate now! W00T! It was a long and arduous journey, with plenty of twist and turns, but now my friends, I am a college grad! I now have a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree in Game Design! What a relief!
It is a relief because as many of you (at least those who know me thru my blogs) know that my wife has CF and is sick quite a bit. Well, she is in a poor place right now. Her liver is failing. She is on the transplant list for a liver, pancreas, and possibly a kidney. Yeah, 3 organs. Quite a bit to have on your plate when you are attending college.
But we have faith, and are confident that the Doctors will have another successful transplant patient to add to their already impressive lists of successes.
So, this is it. I do not imagine that I will be back, but stranger things have happened. As of now, this will be my very last blog on Gamespot. It has been an awesome ride, and I couldn't have enjoyed it with a better group of friends. Thanks for being so supportive through the thick and thin, and most of all, thanks for listening and commenting. You guys always brought a smile to my face, and I am very appreciative.
Good luck in all that you do. Take it from me, if you really want to do something, and you put your heart and soul into it, you will achieve it. No matter what it is. With enough hard work comes great returns!
Who knows, maybe you guys will see me talking about my newest game one of these days.
P.S. You guys can check out my makeshift portfolio (I am still working on it) at http://www.seanhill.me
On page 45, in the Timeline section, on June 16th! SRGE is the show that me and two other friends started last year! This is awesome!!!!!!!!
Hey guys! long time no talk! My life has changes dramatically since I talked to all of you. So here's the scoop.
The wife was sick pretty much all year last year. The doctors say that she needs a new liver, Pancreas, and possibly a Kidney. All thanks to Cystic Fibrosis. So we go to the Hospital for tests, check ups, and other things about 3-5 times a week. Two weeks ago her liver began to fail due to a lack of a certain medication, and she went into a coma for about 4 days. We thought there was brain swelling, but luckily we were wrong. She is feeling better and such now, and she is finally on the liver transplant list, which is awesome. So, no more adoption talk, all about transplants now.
Me. Well, I walk (graduate) on June 7th. I am taking follow up cources at the Seattle Art Institute. Maybe even a two year course, but I did make a friend that is BIG in the game industry (he is a lead concept artist for a really, REALLY big game franchise) so I may have an opportunity to work on something that you will all be playing in the near future. I cannot give more details than that (name dropping in the industry is only taken well if you are established) but I can say that I am really excited for the possible chance to have a career job right here in the Seattle area.
I will be able to frequest this site more now, though I have to admit that I dont know which of all my friends are still here..... Its been so long since I really talked to anyone on here. I have been doing a lot of handheld gaming, and to my surprise I had a small stint where I played and beat Uncharted 1, and 2, and assassins Creed 2 and brotherhood, and now I am half way thru Uncharted 3 and AC: Revelations. That was in a 3 week window. I was booking it through these games! I counted them up, and my 360 collection sits at 161 games. That is just counting my disc games too. I have a lot now. Just for those who dont know, I am a HUGE cllector. I have several thousand games at this point. I will be growing my collection this weekend at a retro gaming charity for kids.
Also, if anyone is going to be in the Seattle (Bellevue), WA area on Fathers Day weekend, be sure and hit me up so that you can come to our Second Annual Seattle Retro Gaming Expo! Two other friends and myself put this thing on for the first time last year, and it was a HUGE success! We had about 1,000 attendees and 17 vendors. It was awesome! This year, we have a bigger and better venue, and we will have even more vendors to shop from! Last year we worked with Nothwest Harvest and raised $4,000 for their charity! They feed the homeless. This year we are working with a different charity and will have a raffle for some really cool, and pretty damn rare, items for people to try and win.

Well guys, I am starving so I am going to eat! It was awesome having a chance to whip this up to share with you guys! I may be in different places now, but here is where my heart stays. Post a comment, let me know what you guys have been up to! I would love to catch up with all 924 of you!
Talk to you all soon!
