About Alex Boutone of us since 1:53 PM on 07.22.2011

Hi!

I'm Alex, and I'm on the PC and Hardware teams here at Destructoid. While I've been playing games since I was a kid, I admit that I haven't really gotten into the gaming community until very recently (2011).

Anyway, I mostly play Battlefield 3, Guild Wars, FFXI, and Starcraft II at the moment. If you ever need any PC help (including troubleshooting or advice on PC buying) feel free to hit me up at [email protected]
