Hi there from the sunshine state! =]
This is mainly a blog about screenshots ive taken of games like Bioshock (my all time favorite), Portal, Dead Space and Skyrim as well as a few others. Plus a little bit of stuff i like, and even some me. Anything not tagged jlbiggs isnt mine, if you would like me to credit you, just send me a quick message and i would be more than happy to.
I feel that sometimes games aren't given enough credit. To me, they can be like works of art. They contain engaging stories like books and beautiful visuals like movies. The music can give you chills just like your favorite band. But my favorite thing about them is the atmosphere they pull you in with and before you know it, you've stayed up till 4 in the morning, eyes all blurry with a controller in your hand.
There's nothing special about me or the screenshots i take. I just like to explore game worlds and snap some screenshots along the way. :) Whether you're taking a picture of a game on a black and white TV with your Indestructible Nokia, or you're taking a screenshot on a beast of a computer, they are both equally as amazing. When taking shots (as well as playing), i love finding all the little details the game designers put in a level. They did all the hard work, im just along for the ride. :)
Bioshock is very very special to me. It came out at a great time in my life, and in my opinion, was an almost perfect game. The atmosphere, the music, the setting, the look, the gameplay. It all came together to form a masterpiece. For christmas one of my best friends got me the pc version and the second i noclipped through the lighthouse and flew through the city down below, i saw Rapture (and every other game afterwards) in a whole new light. I was able to see how they put it together, how they added the tiniest details in to make it a believable world. I could almost feel the time, love and effort they put in to it. I started taking screenshots and posting them on the Bioshock forums and a few years later, they wound up on tumblr. Since that christmas in 2007, ive played through Bioshock more times than i can even count. I know every inch of every level. And i still cant get enough. There are games where i put the controller down after 5 minutes. That Rapture is still this interesting after all this time, is a testament to what the developers created.
Some of my favorite things that may or may not wind up on my tumblr-
Cookies, calvin and hobbes, owls, exploring (everything but mainly woods), piano, computers, drums, dogs, chocolate covered pretzels, nighttime, penguins, cold days, books, adventures, cookies, guitar, Disney, sweaters, riding bikes, retro futuristic things, aquariums, cookies, snow (ive never seen it), space.
One of the most wonderful human beings ive ever met, Audrey, is the reason i have this tumblr. She pointed out to me one day that my pictures were on FYeahBioshock and that led me to make my own page. Thank you Audrey!!
And thank you for taking the time to check out my page!
is that a projector?
It is. :) Its a Panasonic ae7000u. The screen is 92”. Hopefully one day ill rebuild what i used to have and then ill invite all of my tumblr friends over for marathons of movies and gaming. :D

Got any pictures of your gaming setup?
Everything’s ready for Bioshock Infinite! :]
The computer has a new video card and 2 new hard drives since this pic was taken.

600 is definitely a good amount, especially for one game! Since ive started taking screenshots (around 2007) im close to 12,700. lol
When Caffrey was three, the handsome grey Persian was run over by a car and lost his left hind leg. He happily carried on with three, thanks to a £3,500 series of operations that stitched up the damage and made the best of his front left paw, which was also injured in the crash.For the next ten years or so, he coped so well it was easy to forget his disability. But four months ago he developed a malignant growth on the repaired front leg and subsequently had it removed. Although he was expected to spend weeks recovering at home, he has already managed to figure out balancing on two legs — both on the same side.
