Branmuffin17's Bio

I'm a relatively old man (38 and feeling it). I have a wife and 2 kids (5 1/2 and 3 years) and I spend their waking hours with them, rather than on the computer. That leaves me a couple of hours a night to rest and relax (split between my wife, Smite and whatever other games currently strike my fancy).

I first got into Smite (my first and only MOBA) at the suggestion of my nephew, a cocky teenage bastard (only to me, he says). Here and there, I also play other games (OverWatch, a lot of indie games on Steam, etc.).

Regarding SMITE, I spend most of my solo-queue time in Assault, with a smattering of other modes. I queue Conquest when I have SF friends with me.

I've been gaming since I can remember...I have vague memories of my dad propping me up on his knee so I could play arcade games at Chuck E. Cheese's...when the "new" games were Dig Dug, Joust, Q-Bert, and others...that puts my starting age around 4 years old. I've retained my old Intellivision, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, and Dreamcast to graduate my kids through the history of gaming. Too bad I don't have my Genesis, and have lost quite a few games over the years (probably mostly letting other people borrow them!).

Favorite games, on the oldest systems, include:
  • NES: Battletoads, RC Pro Am, Cobra Triangle, The Legend of Zelda (of course), Super Mario Bros. 3, Blades of Steel, Double Dribble, Bases Loaded, Castlevania, Ghosts 'n' Goblins, the Mega Man series, Metroid, Mike Tyson's Punch Out!, Pro Wrestling (Star Man!), Startropics
  • SNES: Zelda/A Link to the Past, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy 2/3 (4/6 Japan), Chrono Trigger, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid, Super Castlevania IV, F-Zero, Star Fox, UN Squadron
  • Genesis: Road Rash!!!
  • N64: Super Mario 64, Zelda/The Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros

I'm an avid hockey fan (Go Ducks!), play ice hockey (not that well), am 5 years into my retirement from karate since I was 7 years old, and I'm pretty sure I know a good deal about dietary supplements, as I've been in the industry for ~20 years now. Look for me (Muffinman17 on PC, Branmuffin17 on PS4) in-game, and add me as a friend if you'd like to play sometime. No guarantees on my abilities!
