Welcome to the group - I am also a big Skyrim player, but also spend time every day on Dance Central 2. I figure if I'm going to enjoy the "sitting" games like Skyrim I better do some of the fitness games too!

I have 3 girls (my youngest is 8 now) and I am always amazed at their intuitive use of technology. Sometimes just watching them I'll learn how to do some a different way.

Anyway glad you've joined us!

Hey, Screaming Chickens. ;-) Awesome. I would have spent time at Campbell if I'd stayed in. OH WELL.

Go to Alaska or Vicenza, Italy!

Hi there!!!

Hubby and I are currently 101 AB but looking to leave the Bible Belt in the next few years.

Kinect has changed my life as a gamer and definitely introduced fun ways to be active when the snow and ice is just too darn cold. Skyrim has been very popular in our house but I'm looking forward to the new Blackeyed Peas game after Christmas. I just had surgery so I'm slowly trying to get back into the groove.

Thanks for the welcome. ;-)

It's amazing how adept she is with technology. From using a smartphone to a tablet to our home PC.

I have been hunting down one of those amazing new Leapfrog LeapPads that are sold out EVERYWHERE for Christmas, but looks like that'll be a April birthday purchase. Too in demand this holiday season. ;-)

It's fascinating to me too as a techy/internet entrepreneur type of guy, ideas and motivations for doing things for kids. I've always loved reading and writing and was that person who always says they wanted to do a children's book - I really do, but this is such a similar way to connect with my child, and other children, I just love it.

Next semester I'll be doing some PHP and Flash classes and hoping to do some interactive storybooks, little mini games, etc.

Sorry for the ramble. ;-) Thanks again guys and gals.

Welcome to the team! How fun that your daughter is a little gamer too. My daughter is 8 and she loves to game too. My husband is getting us a few Kinnect games for Christmas and we can't wait.

Well, during the day after Christmas it's going to be Disneyland Adventures.

But at night now and definitely still then, Skyrim.

Yours?

Just thought I'd say hello!

I found this website through the owner/beginner of the group, and so glad I did. So many interesting people and communities based around fitness, it's great, I love it.

Anyway, I'm 32, my daughter Mercedes is 4. I love building websites and internet entrepreneurship, so while I'm going to college for my degree in marketing and computer science, I build websites for fun. Mostly for my daughter, but I feel like I learn a lot with the whole process, with visitors from around the globe to a few of my sites.

I'm over here in Oregon. Did six years with the 82nd Airborne and left as an airborne infantry Sergeant. Love fitness and staying in shape, especially utilizing games to do so, and love that my little girl is turning into quite the little gamer herself. I've been on a mission to find the best games for her I can find, and hopefully as some of my sites are around longer, I'll be able to spotlight more on them. But either way, I love how games have gone mainstream since I was a kid.

I'm big into MMA and boxing, reading and writing, and obstacle course racing like Spartan Race.

Love to connect with anyone who is interested, hope everyone is having a great weekend!
