"...frustrated or cynical. We never have those feelings when we're playing games, they just don't exist in games"

I don't think she's played EVE :)

She's a gamer, she's intelligent, if she wasn't so intimidating she'd be hot ;)

She sounds very intelligent, but please, please STOP SAYING EPIC. I choke on stomach acid every time I hear that word.

...Then again, I use that word to elicit the same response in others, so maybe it's deserved.

Oh god I hope my "epic win" face isn't like that!

@belamar - Touché!

@Mandrill - I have to disagree!

@J.C. - Epic, Epic, Epic Fail!!

@Shave - Thanks, now following her!

@Eelis - lol, mighty scared of what "I" look like myself!
