About

I'm the Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I guess I'm more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my 360/Wii/DS/3DS and so on, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

You may not know this but I also help run the Xbox 360 FNF side of business on Dtoid. You can always host or find games to play here: Friday Night Fights Forum Thread

As of this update (1.09.2012) I currently have:

33 Consoles
47 Handhelds
1562 physical copies of various games
155 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

I'm also a huge comic book nerd, here are some of my all-time favorites, in no particular order:


Cerberus the Aardvark


Groo the Wanderer


Howard the Duck


Usagi Yojimbo


BatMan

I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:


The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:


Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.


I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

ChillyBilly's Hidden Gems - Nano Assault

Tales from the Battlefield - Operation Rolling Hell

My Time so far with Battlefield 3

Take a gander at some of my previous haul blogs

Team Fortress 2sdays: End of the line

Happy Tuesday! I want to take a moment to apologize for not getting the post up last week. I hate when I miss a post, it drives me absolutely bonkers. Shadow is back with us this week to talk about a new update that, well, may not have been as awesome as many were hoping. It's probably best to let Shadow tell you all about it, since he definitely knows this game better than I do.

Act Fast! Lucario amiibo available for pre-order again on Toys "R" Us website

Jeez, these amiibo things sure are popular, huh? Grab your wallets and get to shopping, because the Lucario amiibo (Toys "R" Us exclusive) is back in stock at the Toys "R" Us website. Just yesterday, these figures were completely sold out on there, so you should probably act pretty fast if you want to snag one for yourself.

Team Fortress 2sdays: We landed on a comet

Happy Tuesday! I guess I wasn't the only one excited about the whole, landing a rover on a moving comet thing, seems as though our very own TF2 guru, Shadow, was impressed as well, and he has a few words on it, as well as Kerbal Space Program! Take it away, Shadow!
