    Ok, I have finally decided what I will write about. It has been a bit difficult for me to decide.
    Beyond gaming where I am a babe in the woods compared to most. My main interests aren't very mainstream. And I certainly don't wish to bore people. silly

    However, I will write an article about "Is Reality an Illusion" based on Quantum Theory with a little neural science thrown in.  I will attempt to do so with a light touch and humor.

    Then I will do "A Project In The Life of a Silversmith, where I will do a "this is how it is done" article with chronological pics depicting the creation, construction, and finishing stages of a Pro Rodeo style buckle dedicated to FextraLife.

    Since this will be a FextraLife Pro Rodeo Belt Buckle I am now open for design suggestions for the buckle "face" artwork. Please pm all suggestions to me via our FextraLife sister site.

    Thanks big grin

    I could see me contributing to this a bit with my Curious project.

    I've been working on launching a small little character named Curious whom will go on adventures i draw in a comic-like style on Tumblr, and also is used as the face behind lets plays of games, and other small projects I'd like to undertake just for fun and curiosity.

    Oh that sounds like fun big grin - Let me know when you've signed up there and I'll give you contributor status and you can add stuff as you feel happy

    Nobody has done drawings yet so you'd be doing a new style big grin

    It may be a bit, because I need to get a tablet before I could add drawings to a lets play. Otherwise i'd just have the video's of the lets play. My art is currently just a tumblr thing, with a few lets play's I'm trying to get a format for.

    All I could offer is my knowledge of History, Final Fantasy and RTS games if there ever was any demand for such things. silly

    But right now I'm tied down with university assignments, maybe in the future I could contribute to the site when my schedule isn't as hectic.

    All those things are definitely in demand. Final Fantasy is always in the news in some shape or form. There is a place for history in General Interest and RTS games always draw a crowd. Whenever you get a moment, we'd be glad to feature anything that interests you.

    Would a more casual approach to history be preferred? I could do 'myth busting' or something along those lines. I specialise in ancient Roman and Greek as well as Western European and Middle Eastern Medieval history.

    As for Final Fantasy I know way too much about A Realm Reborn than is healthy. silly

    Hey Fex my uni mag is currently wanting retro game reviews, so I was wondering if I could do a little series of short, retro reviews of like PS1, PS2 games on fextralife. Was thinking of calling it Serious' simple Sony reviews lol!

    Btw the first one is written already, if that makes a difference at all silly

    The answer is yes, we have a few retro reviews already. I think they are a great feature.

    I'll copy the first one over now then.

    Ok every time I try to upload a picture it keeps telling me there's a http error.. However when i do it on wordpress for my uni mag one (same program, wordpress), the exact same picture was fine. I have no idea how to rectify this.

    Anyways, the picture I wanted to use for the featured image is this:

    http://lparchive.org/Crash-Bandicoot-1-3/Images/1-box.jpg

    The rest is all done though.

    A few AAA titles are out and we would love to get your reviews for them. Batman Arkham Origins, Battlefield 4 and Assassin's Creed IV are among the highlights. If you are picking up any of these games and want to write a review we will get you all set up!
