Hello, everybody! My in-game name is Soma Ishimura; real-name Christian, and I have expressed my interest in joining a new FC/Guild with Ms. Minori Thanos.
I am a 24-year-old man, California-based and I've had my history with videogames, especially, RPGs, MMORPGs and MOBAs. Although I started maybe as everyone did back in their time, playing Mario, Legend of Zelda or Sonic, RPGs managed to catch a very keen interest on me. My 1st RPG was Earthbound for the SNES and my 1st FF game was FFIV for the 1997 Playstation release. What managed to get me into the series was the role-playing aspect of the series: The grand repertoire of unique classes that the games offered was just mind-blowing to me at that age, and for a SciFi/Fantasy story-lover like myself, the series would perfectly fit in that description. The game that absolutely got my heart was FFX for the PS2. The music and visual aspects were completely stunning (and also the main theme, "To Zanarkand", was the 1st piano piece that I learned on my own). After a while, I got me an XBOX 360 and a Wii, and had a blast playing together with my childhood friends and my brother. Perhaps that was the best gaming era of gaming for me, since I was able to play so many genres and discover some new ones as well.
I was interested in FFXI, and then, FFXIV since 1.0, but was not able to get the game due to other priorities at the time. After getting my own PC and moving to study university, I played my share of mmorpgs and mobas: from WoW, Diablo II and III, SWTOR, MapleStory, to SMITE, LoL, etc. And just before the release of Heavensward and decided to get the game. Had a real good time, joined Geuno, but due to "scandalous" and "overly-dramatic" experiences, me and a couple of comrades decided to leave and form a new FC. Had a blast with them, even formed our raid group, but priorities game into place once more, and i was forced to leave the game due to those constraints.
After a year, and getting myself a good job, I decided to came back about three months ago, and to wait the release of StormBlood (which has not disappointed me ever since), but the FC I was in had already dissipated.
Now, I hope to join a new group of people, with whom I can share the same feeling of camaraderie and as well, share a good laugh every now and then, and although my schedule might be a little tight on weekdays, i always try to at least play a couple of hours, and just catch up on everything on weekends!
TL,DR? The name's Christian a.k.a Soma Ishimura, 24 years old, Male, California. I am your atypical sarcastic IRL Chef/Audio Engineer-musician/Interpreter, with a good sense of humor and schadenfreude enthusiast. I hope I can be of service!
