In a stupid Russian accent: "On Destructoid Dot Com, Internet looks at YOU!" So, yeah, stop staring at me. I'm just a gamer guy with a bit of typing diarrhea, which caused my short comments on news items to get out of hand.. so I decided I should start a blog to give them the space they needed. But anyway, this is my Dtoid profile, let's get started.
I obtained an original NES when I was five years old and still have it, along with all the Nintendo consoles since, all of which can be hooked up and played within a moment's notice. Oh, and I still have the old Zapper. Whoopee.
I am not a Nintendo fanboy (not completely, anyway) since I did own a Playstation for a while, and now have an Xbox 360 after having the original Xbox for the last year of it's run, and find myself all over it's achievements like a madman. I'm up to 33000 or so as of this writing in July '07. Check my Gamercard if you're from the future to see where I am now!
Favourite games include, but are not limited to: Zelda, Metroid and Mario anything (BEE SUIT). Resident Evil since I got hooked on the GC remake, Halo (don't kill me!), Grim Fandango, pretty much all the N64 Rare made games including Conker's Bad Fur Day, the C&C series, Monkey Island series, YDKJ series (don't know what that is, do you?), Eternal Darkness, Killer7, GTA series, the Myst series, the Worms games before they went to 3D and even though I can't hit the orange note half the time.. Guitar Hero.
Those games were listed in the order I thought of them, I'm not going to re-arrange them in my preferance order. Who knows which I like the most?!
Oh, and for crap I own.. I'm big into soundtracks, so whenever I can, I get the soundtrack to a game. And I mean, the actualy disc, not just downloading it. That's pretty hard where I live, so.. yeah. Hardcore, I guess. Woo.
I'm sure many others probably already know, or at least figured that Nintendo was waiting to release Super Metroid around the same time as Metroid Prime 3 on the Wii, and that's now been confirmed by the news on the Wii Shop channel of all places.
The detail their 'Month of Metroid' as follows: The Metroid Prime 3 preview channel download for WiiWare last week, the original Metroid download for the Virtual Console this week (Aug 13th) and the über-hotness that was, is and will be Super Metroid for download on the Virtual Console next week (Monday August 20th)!
Oh, and Prime 3 the week after that, of course. But come on, we'll all still be playing good old Metroid 3 then, right?
On a personal note, I had just returned from my local EBGames after purchasing a new Wii Points card, because I suspected that this was going to happen, when I found this tidbit of newsgasm. Vindication never felt so good.
