About
Related To Gaming

How did I start gaming?:
I've been gaming since before I can remember. I played the Atari at a friend's house, the N64 at my cousin's house and then the PS and old PC games at my house. Since then I've played many different games and will continue to do so.

What game systems do you play?:
I mainly play on my PC. Of course my PC is junk and can't play much of anything; it even stutters on Halo if I have more than just Halo open. Because of that I also play on the XBox 360 frequently. I don't have live; I can't afford it (curse the lack of freedom to spend money every which way). When I'm in the car or just bored I may even pull out the Gameboy SP and stick in Fire Emblem or the Final Fantasies.

What games do I play?:
All sorts. My favourite genres are RPG and Strategy. I do like a good FPS every once in awhile though. I still play Halo: Combat Evolved on the PC. When I get nostalgic of my Final Fantasy I go back and play Final Fantasy Tactics or of Diablo I grab my copy of Diablo II and grind it out. As of now I don't play too many games. I'm waiting for this year's (2011) new releases, such as Bulletstorm or Skyrim.

Interests & Hobbies

Gaming
Duh? My interest in gaming is deep-seeded within me. It may wither a little time to time but it always come back revitalized, stronger than ever, afterwards.

Learning
Yes, that's right. I love learning. I'm crazy. I know. I do a lot of independent learning; a lot of it is random knowledge that I may never need (but it is still good to know, right?). I yearn for information related to mathematics and science, yet, my main interest lies in history. I absolutely love learning about the past.

Reading & Writing
I read whenever I can, whether it's an actual, tangible book or not. I have dozens of eBooks ready for me to read at any given time as well as a list of books to get from the library. I write little things here and there when I think of them and often times will start writing poetry on the spur of the moment.

Music
Music is life. I listen to all types of musics from Japanese traditional to Afro-Celt to American rock or country to British pop to classical. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have music; I have it on almost constantly if I'm not talking or listening to someone.

"A person's hobbies and interests define them. They're the pages of a book."

If you really want to learn about someone then talk to them. No matter how much you read up on them, you will learn more from ten minutes of conversation.

Hey Alzeryon, 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?
