I started with BASIC (on the Commodore PET), then Visual Basic, then Delphi, and eventually stuck with my preferred language, C++.Other Interests: PCs, Home Theatre, Movies, Music (Alternative Rock, Industrial, Synth-Pop, etc. Long-time Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails fan), Swimming, GolfConsoles: Playstation, PS2, XBOX 360My alias Wolffe actually came from "Lord Ironwolffe", the name of my first Dungeons & Dragons character I made (a Thief) probably back when I was about 11. On the local BBS systems (remember those?), using my faithful TRS-80 Model IV, I used to just sign my messages as 'wolffe. Eventually I just chopped off the whole first part and just stuck with Wolffe. Here I am 20 some odd years later still using the same name but in a completely different online world.I'm really into home theatre, particularly my custom Media Center PCs. I love movies and music. I always have my iPod with me. I have my entire home networked (just finished upgrading everything to gigabit) and I store all of my media (music, movies, photos) on a monster file server that makes everything accessible from any PC around the house. My PS2 and XBOX 360 are also networked and online, but I don't play online very often. I just don't have the time to get my skills up to the level where I can be remotely competitive online any more.I think the game that really started my video-game addiction was probably Zork: The Underground Empire which was one of the best games my TRS-80 had to offer... considering most games were made with big blocky graphics equivalent to today's ASCII characters. I think I played and finished most of the early Infocom titles on my TRS-80.West of HouseYou are standing in an open field west of a white house, with a boarded front door.There is a small mailbox here.>?

Name: NosferaTx (Nos), Josh…
Hometown: San Antonio, Tx., but I am from Germany…
Interests: Enjoying life with my Daughter and wife, graphic design, drawing (technical, graphite, pen and ink, textures, surrealism), networking, street racing, video game collecting, and video game story designing…
Favorite Music Genres: Most music I listen to is old school hip-hop, heavy metal, classic metal, video game music, classical, and some 80’s music…
Favorite Game Genre: When I first started playing video games it was rpg’s, but it branched off to survival horror…
Favorite RPG: Final Fantasy VII (Ps1)…
I have noticed the primary population here is split when it comes to how people started playing video games... I start like most of the old gamers have Pac-Man... When I first played a video game of any type was a Pac-Man arcade version at a Pizza Inn... I am talking about the arcade machines where you could sit down while playing them... Ever since then I would say that game sealed my fate concerning video games being integrated into my life...
As for my user name on here I have gotten alot of people asking why that name... This name is actually the one I used the most online, or offline when naming a character or user name... I used to go by NosferaT, but the X was added on after the Ps2 went online... I first started using this name when I was on Xband... Some people do not know what Xband is, but it was in my eyes the pioneer in online gaming... It first came out in late 1994 early 1995 for some people and I was on that network from the time it was created until the time it fell in April 1997... You could play people on either a Snes or Genesis via the Xband on a 14,400-baud modem... The game selection was small, but at the time it was more than enough... After the fall of Xband I still used the name NosferaT, but once the Ps2 went online it brought back all those memories of Xband and it seemed more fitting to use an "X" at the end of my user name... This symbolized kind of a second generation of online gaming via a video game platform to me...
Other than that I still play video games avidly but usually around work, school, and family life... In my spare time I ended up collecting video games like a person collects comic books... I actually treat them almost the same as comic books, but I have actually played every single game in my collection and other times more than once... Outside here and my normal life others and myself here in San Antonio set up LAN parties including road trips to video game collecting conventions... Yeah they actually have those for people that did not know they exist... That is basically all there is to me except my home here is usually in the Underground forum...
