About The Stupid Blog
The msupdate Blog was opened on August 28, 2009 as a place to publish MapleStory update content and date predictions. Since then, update predictions have taken a back seat as The msupdate Blog has transformed into the one-stop source for information on MapleStory, other Nexon games, Nexon as a company, the free-to-play game industry and gaming in general. Driven by a vast knowledge of all the topics covered on the blog and a passion to educate the public on these topics, The msupdate Blog continues to perform exceptionally well with rather consistent triple digit viewer growth when compared to the same month the year before, except the epically failed June 2011.
Well my name is Zach and I’ve been playing MapleStory actively since November 2005, and inactively since beta. My birthday is May 21, 1987 :). Yes, I’m old. I really, really love to draw. I’m qualified as a game artist and a software programmer and, hence, work as a game designer at a popular game developer. Hmm… I’ve lived in Los Angeles for the past 6 years but I was born and spent the first 18 years of my life in Jamaica. Yup, I’m black and play MS :). My girlfriend’s name is Sammi and we have a son named Brad who was born on January 8, 2011. Sammi’s birthday is May 6. She doesn’t like me giving out the year -F3- -whispers “1989”-. I expect our happy birthdays -F3 again-.
Yeah so things I like doing: drawing, gaming, drawing, playing basketball and soccer, drawing, going to the gym, drawing, blogging, drawing, swimming, drawing, eating, drawing, listening to music, drawing, paintball, drawing, airsoft, drawing, going to parties, drawing and most of all… DRAWING :).
PC Games I play actively right now (I play a lot more games but have decided not to play them for a little while): MapleStory, Combat Arms, Vindictus, League of Legends, World of Warcraft, Cross Fire, Aion, CoD Black Ops, GTA 4, Sudden Attack (Korea), Dragon Nest (China), Kart Rider (China), Everplanet (Japan). That’s about it right now, You see I game in shifts. In the next six months you’ll probably see me playing a totally different set of games actively.
