With Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 having the biggest launch across all forms of entertainment and your mom hogging the computer to play Farmville all day, there are more and more gamers emerging each and everyday. So I’ve created this piece to highlight the new and veteran gamers alike here at Rowan University.

Hello and welcome to my blog, Gaming Decoded. My name is Matt Perez and I’m a Freshman at Rowan University. I am a Journalism major and I hope to one day become a writer, specifically a game journalist. I’ve been living in the quaint college town of Glassboro, New Jersey my entire life and since I can remember, I’ve been playing video games.

So, what is Gaming Decoded? This blog will revolve around the ever-evolving world of video games. My main focus will be exploring the current and future state of gaming, whether that be reviewing new and upcoming games, talking to local gamers, going to gaming events occurring around the South Jersey area, or investigating the impact that games have on not only avid gamers, but society in general. I’m hoping to cover a lot of topics this semester, some more daunting than others.

Either this week or next week, I’ll have an extensive review on the highly anticipated Mass Effect 2 and following that, a review of the sequel to one of the most critically acclaimed titles of 2007, Bioshock 2 as well as some interviews with gamers at Rowan and my first big article.

Thanks for reading and keep posted!
