Intro - LizzieJay

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm LizzieJay, Lizzie or Liz is fine with me. I currently live in British Columbia, Canada. I started playing computer games when I was a kid, which got me into sci-fi and fantasy, which got me into books & going to university for English lit, and now it's circled back around to video games. Mostly because I'm looking for interesting stories to follow and figure out.

I think I'm what I'd consider a casual gamer, mostly solo adventure and puzzle games like Stardew Valley or Transistor or mobile games with previous stops in games like Hearthstone, Gwent, and Overwatch. These days I pretty much just play Destiny 2, which is different but I'm enjoying it. I mostly just do PvE stuff with some very very occasional PvP. I came across MadCast when looking for a new clan because I was hitting the 'I really need people to help me with some of these quests because I can't do them solo' wall HARD. (Big thanks to Doublestufforeo for the invite & all the help/carrying doing Shattered Throne this past weekend.) I'm generally on most evenings starting around 7pm Pacific time, if anyone else wants to do something. Flashpoint stuff, Blind Well, Gambit, Reckoning, leveling up alt characters, triumph completions, just shoot me a message. Just not Crucible, I'm really just the worst at PvP.

I just kind of want to test the waters here. I've done so much of my previous online gaming solo, I'm a massive lurker when it comes to social media, I'm the kind of person who loves listening to other people tell stories and talk about their interests, but I kind of want to see what it's like playing with other people. So if that's okay, then cool. We'll see how it goes and how I feel in a few months. :)

Hi Lizzie! :) Welcome to MadCast!

I also am a big solo game player lately (Stardew Valley, Rimworld, Oxygen Not Included, Slime Rancher, etc), but I also play Heroes of the Storm, League, and even some Destiny 2 with friends. I am terrrrrrible at PvP, but I would join you for PvE stuff. I'm not super focused on efficient grinding, but I like running around shooting stuff and "helping".

If you are interested in company while playing a single player game, a lot of people post up in the Other Games section in a Chill channel or something similar. :)

Hey Lizzie! Welcome!

I am more of a MOBA player around here, but I try to find some time for single player stuff too. 

Slay the Spire, Rimworld, Total War, all that jazz. 

Good to see some more Canadian representation! BC is a beautiful province, I'll be taking some time away in Whistler this year to re-appreciate some of the area.  

 

I hope you enjoy your time here.

Nice to meet you Lizzie! I am also usually averse to PvP, even though I play a lot of LoL and such. If you're feeling shy but want to observe the community, I would highly recommend sitting in during a casual event like Pictionary, Karaoke, or Social Games Sunday. Everyone is goofing around and having a great time, and there isn't any kind of competitive pressure to ruin the fun atmosphere. Looking forward to meeting you in Discord~

Hi there Lizzie, I'm one of those too that when i'm not playing something like League of Legends I'll usually be found playing a Final Fantasy game, Path of Exile, or whatever else might pique my interest in Steam.  Love some old school Baldur's Gate too for quiet solo time.  Feel free to do your thing and if you decide you wanna come lurk on an event, then be our guest!
