Branmuffin17's Bio

I'm an old man that's officially too old to play SMITE (just turned 40, lol). I have a wife and 2 kids (7 and 4.5 years) and I spend their waking hours with them, rather than on the computer (though I'm turning them into gamers!). 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).

*note* My standard gametime usually starts around 9 PM Pacific (-7:00 / 8:00 GMT), mostly on PC. SMITE PC IGN is MuffinMan17, SMITE PS4 IGN is Branmuffin17 (though I don't really play PS4). Look for me in-game, and add me as a friend if you'd like to play sometime. I'm chill.

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 on PC and other systems.

Current play list includes the Switch's Bayonetta/Bayonetta 2 and Mario vs. Rabbids, PS4's Persona 5 and Horizon: Zero Dawn, abd I have an unending backlist of games that I need to play / finish (e.g. PC's Nier: Automata, Rise of the Tomb Raider, Shadow of Mordor, Child of Light, The Witcher 3).

Recent games I've played through include Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch), Mario Odyssey (Switch), To the Moon (PC), Rakuen (PC), and Cuphead (PC).

Regarding SMITE, I almost exclusively play on PC (though I also have PS4), and probably queue most modes somewhat equally. I generally only 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, Streets of Rage 2, OG Sonic, Toe Jam & Earl, Golden Axe
  • N64: Super Mario 64, Zelda/The Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 64, Super Smash Bros
  • Arcade: Dig Dug, Rampage, Mr. Do!, Kangaroo, Congo Bongo, Knights of the Round, TMNT,
    Gauntlet, any gun game like Time Crisis

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.
