About
Ok So, I'm scared shitless about doing this, since I always feel more comfortable simply lurking the intertubes.
Anyways that aside let me introduce myself. My name Is Augusto I'm 28 yo and I usually go by the handle AlphaRedux what's does AlphaRedux mean?? I don't even know lol, but I like the way it sounds plus there are a few things in there that makes me relate to that name such as my initials, that are the first three letters in the word alpha and redux well it just sounds cool to me, actually after some little google it says: Redux adj.Brought back; returned. Used postpositively. So there's that...Alpha is back postpositively! hehe
I found a soul asylum in Destructoid after the Gertsmanngate how naive I was at that time...dear god thankfully D-Toid opened my eyes and showed me the way!! After about a couple of years I found out that Jeff Gerstmann was working for another indie blog (Giant bomb)but it was too late, I was already hooked to destructoid for good. :-)
Ok, so my video game story, well that's pretty long so I'll just say I've been gaming since the NES era so I've come a long way, Unfortunately I don't collect consoles I Rather stay current, if nostalgia kicks back then it's time to fire up an emulator and problem solved.
My current gaming console is the ps3, I used to have a 360 since day launch but It RRoD'd for the last time on me and my warranty expired, just around the time Uncharted for ps3 came out along the first price cut and the 40gb model...what can I say...I jumped on the ps3 bandwagon in a heartbeat! lol and it has been a good ride so far.
Pc gaming..did that, just not my thing anymore plus I'm a Macwhore now so there's that as well,lol
And the Wii simply doesn't cut it for me I do love the DSi though
Anyhow that was just whatever I could come up with for my intro, mind you this is my first time I decide to show up like this on the internet aside from FB which I rarely use since most my family and friends are in there and they get really invasive sometimes... but I have to put up with it otherwise they start complaining why I'm blocking them or silly stuff like that, privacy...thou shall not have!!
Enough of that I say, I'm here Because I love video games and also, I love this community }:-)
ps: Feel free to add me on PSN: AlphaRedux /subject Destructoid
Thanks for Reading }:-)

Hey AlphaRedux, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
