Starcraft 2 Beta

Sadly, I don't have the Beta for Starcraft 2, but I've heard some great things about the game from those that have been playing. In fact, a friend of mine sent me this article that lists some of the "broken" aspects, characters, and strategies of the game...most of which probably won't make it into the actual game. I haven't had a chance to watch the videos yet, but they all seem pretty interesting :-)

I'm dying for my copy of Modern Warfare 2 to arrive in the mail. This game was sent out on Feb. 18...and it's still not here. I contacted the seller, and the next day the package tracking system listed my game at a sorting facility in Virginia. So, it's close by, but it's still not here. Maybe today it'll arrive...maybe. I just want to test my skills in this FPS so I can see what my chances are in joining a PMS clan. There are even mandatory practice hours...which is both daunting and exciting. Even if I don't make it into the Frag Doll Cadettes this round, I know that I want to persue a path into competitve gaming.

Ah, it feels good to have goals :-)


I received Modern Warfare 2 today - FINALLY! Although, I also received a "bonus" gift in the same package...

WHAAAA??? Weird freebie, but at least I got my game!


  1. I saw your blog and wanted to let you know that you do not have to be as good as the Fragdolls to join the PMS Clan. You could even be as good or better than them and still join the PMS clan. It's really just a supportive environment for gaming. Especially for female gamers. :) I joined PMS 2 years ago to play COD4. Actually going to the practices improved my FPS skills.

    Feel free to add me and play some MW2 with me. PMS RedZulu is my xbox tag. Just let me know who you are with a message. ;)

  2. Thanks for the comment Zulu! I sent you a friend request on Xbox Live - my Gamertag is Selisona. I hope to play MW2 with you sometime soon! And I'm seriously considering submitting an application to PMS. It seems like a great group of women!

  3. Sun parakeet! Lovely bird. Also, the reason to have the melee button on the thumbstick is so that you've always got a thumb on it. You tend to melee "reactionary", that is, all of a sudden someone rounds a corner in front of you and you want to shank 'em. It becomes second nature pretty quickly.
