Bro Cave: @UDP7

This week’s Brocave comes to us from forum user UDP7. A long time consololol gamer who then got his PC gaming start on a Mac, he’s now fully outfitted to game with the big dogs at KBMOD. Take a peek at his cave below, you’ll like what you see.

Hello, my name is Jurica and I’m a PC gamer!

Let’s dive into my story. I wasn’t always on PC and grew up on a variety of consoles such as Sega Genesis and Nintendo 64. After these consoles, my family received our first computer and it was, sadly, a Macintosh. This was the first time I had ever used a computer. We didn’t have internet, so we couldn’t do much. The only thing we could do on the Mac was play games that were pre-installed. There were a couple of games on there like Tomb Raider and Diablo (can’t remember if it was the first or second one). Then came the beast of a console, the console that made me care about gaming, the X-Box 360. I played Halo 3, all day, erryday. For about half a year, I was using the wireless adapter and stealing one of the worst Wi-Fi connections from one of my neighbours, so pretty much every game of Halo I played was laggy (my K/D and W/L could have been so much better. I’m better than Nick Fenton). I played every FIFA game from ’08-’11 and was a beast online. Then came my really competitive side of video games when Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 came out. That game was so much fun to play. I started to get into the game when I was watching John grizz people (really helped me out, thanks).

Then came October 2011, the month that changed my life, I built my own PC. During most of my summers I was watching that Newegg build guide all the time, sorting out which parts I was going to buy, etc. And mid-October I ordered my parts and came home after school to a bunch of boxes in my room. I built my first computer in about 5 hours (could’ve been 4 if it wasn’t for that gosh darn Hyper 212+). I got about 11 games on Steam (I’m not an IncredibleOrb), and have a decent rig, so I’m happy right now.

    If it’s already a thing I’m going to feel like an idiot. But have y’all considered doing user submitted BroCave articles?

    • You can submit them in the forum, there’s a section for community bro caves and we select the featured ones from there. In the future, it’ll be more streamlined as we open the site up to make user contributions easier. :)
