Who am I?

I’ve recently been asked to join Triolith as their community manager. I will assist in building their brand and a personal love-ability that only Anna-attention can provide. Here be the original post :http://www.triolith.com/2012/04/05/community-manager-of-triolith-entertainment-reporting-for-duty/

Actually, that is a rhetorical question, I know exactly who I am!
I am Anna! More known under my online persona Anjo Banjo.

I am the Community Manager of Triolith Entertainment!

I will be using my stellar customer service sense to tend to the growing Triolith community. Especially the one that will emerge once Megatroid is launched. As your community manager, I will do whatever I can to make you all feel as a part of the Triolith family. I also will be spreading awareness about Megatroid, Triolith Entertainment and upcoming games. You want to arrange a gaming tournament? I’ll do my best to make that happen! You want a Megatroid T-shirt? I’ll be the go to gal! We will hopefully soon be launching a forum where all Triolith Entertainment and game enthusiast will be able to come together and discuss games, current game industry events, anything that tickles your fancy really. I will be a face you’ll be seeing for a long time, and my face smells great!

Let’s get this show on the road!

I am an avid gamer, playing anything and everything. I try to keep myself up to date with the more expanding gaming market but let’s face it, it’s hard. I like to believe that I am an artist of sorts. Oil, pixel, vector, sketch, you name it. I usually write about other people, so this is a strange experience for me. What would you like to know?

This is where telepathy would’ve come in handy!
First impressions are so important and I can’t even figure out a good title. As a rule I am very shy, but there are times, like today (oh lucky you!!) where I am feeling absolutely fabulous!

I guess the logical place to start is from the start. As a child, I had an older brother, a very nerdy older brother that finally gave up on ever having a baby brother. Someone had to fill those shoes! Unfortunately I have really small feet, but a big heart and batman glasses that my brother picked out, which got me teased for years. Hanging with my brother and doing what he did made more sense to me then make-up/fashion and boys. He sometimes let me actually touch his Amiga! It’s safe to assume that the best time growing up was when he was playing a game and let me watch, or even better, when we played games together.

His interests became my own. I started to play any game I could get my hands on and spent as much time as I could by a computer. I was content with the life I’ve chosen, not a popular one, but at least, a happy one.
I had friends too who played videogames/PC games, so finding someone to replace the void he left once my brother moved out was simple. The love of gaming ruled my life for a bit, then I discovered the nightlife. That was the least productive year I’ve ever had, ever. Once I stopped partying I took my first step into one of my passions, which was artistry. I pursued that path through education and practice. The market in Sweden, however, was very rough. Since I wasn’t really out partying anymore I decided it was a good opportunity to say hello to an old friend. I picked up an xbox and, with that, a subscription to Xbox-live.
A whole new world opened up. I got to play with people from all over the world! Sure, there was a lot of profanity but to have people I could actually communicate with was just amazing!

One day after getting fired from Burger King, don’t ask, I packed my bags, sold everything I owned and took the first plane to America.
When I landed the cultural difference was striking. I started to work on my artistic portfolio and continued getting to know the online community. The rest is pretty much history, isn’t it? I’ve had the opportunity to create a community of my own, I’ve met some of the best friends I could ever ask for. I’ve had the incredible joy of working for GamertagRadio for a long time, and of course, many others as well. I’ve been to various gaming conventions that I never in my life thought I’d be able to attend! I’ve also worked as a game designer for several girl sites. The biggest moment in my life was being able to see my work on CNN and MSNBC. That was a close second was releasing a PC game I helped design.

So, who am I? I am the girl from Sweden, who vanished and came back richer with experience. That is the experience I will hope to share with Triolith Entertainment.

It’s a pleasure to meet all of you!

If you have any questions you’d like to know, just ask me by commenting on this blog post and I’ll give you an answer as soon as I’ve rid the world of Halo! Actually, I am feeling very generous, so I’ll answer it even without destroying Halo! Congrats, you just cost the world the cure for Halo!

Love

– Anna

Come one, come all! Retrospelsmässan 2012

Image

If you are like me, you probably sit on your wrinkly arse thinking about how much better gaming was when we were mere spring chickens.

The gaming culture has developed so much, so quickly, that we sometimes forget to give homage to the games that opened the doors to the miracles we see today.

I was supposed to attend that certain homage that is taking place in Gothenburg this weekend. Unfortunately, something happened that prevents me to bask in the nostalgia of the old days. If you do not know yet, then let me inform you that the Retro Spelmässan is coming up and coming up quickly, April 28th to be more precise. They will have consoles there from the early 1970’s to 2000.

This would be good experience for you young whippersnappers! Learn a bit about gaming history, so when I tell you boring stories about good old days, you’ll at least know that the era of awesome gaming existed! I am also hoping to attend next year, where the present will be even further in the past. I am getting older by each passing sentence, so by next year, I’ll be even more disappointed at the gaming culture of today and remember the glory of the good ol days!
