Our First Post: Skullf***ed by Pleasure

Badass First Post, Badass First Episode

L. Writes:
I would like to say hello and thank you to all who have taken the time to click their way into this blog. My name is Aidan ODwyer, known as L. on Steam and Left 4 Dead 2 and as jebussaves88 on my previous account here. In my previous incarnation, I wrote posts relating to a backlog I was working my way through, which were viewed by few probably due to the somewhat uninteresting nature of a blog written by some guy about some games hes played with little insight into the person himself. But not to worry, I have taken jebussaves88 round the back of the shed and shot him. He wont be bothering you anymore.

I write to you from this new account, a new start for not just myself, but four others. Yes, we are legion, for we are many. First off is myself; Im a 24 year old Registration Officer (someone who facilitates civil marriages) from the south of England. I enjoy competitive online FPSs, racing games and co-op games, but generally have a soft spot for all games other than real time strategy.
I am joined by StrYdA (real name Mark). A 23 year old Surrey based student of medicine, his main enthuse is for real time strategy, but like me, he is highly partial to a spot of first person shooting and co-operative gameplay, as well as fantasy games in general.
Third amongst us is an old school friend of Marks and another student of medicine, Chris (AKA Killerkris) whose tastes largely are similar to Marks although he at times finds himself happier with a single player experience.
Our resident girl is Rhyn (AKA Lara) a care assistant from Suffolk, whom myself and StrYdA met online through Left 4 Dead 2s online multiplayer. We have no idea what she looks like, but we do know she has a scooter named Trevor, loves Doctor Who (for the most part) and is also an avid fiction writer.
Finally, Apache (real name Andrew), an admin for some sort of green hippy company whose name I should probably ask. We havent been in contact with Andrew too much lately, as we have all drifted away from Left 4 Dead 2. This is something Im hoping this blog will fix.

The first episode can be found above. Much of the content is centred around myself, Rhyn and later StrYdA playing Borderlands 2. I have also included a short section in the middle which is myself quickly reviewing some video games whilst drinking wine. I hope to be joined by the others for this section, which hopefully will extend to more than just product reviews.

Finally, I would like to extend my invitation to you, the Destructoid community, to help make this video series better. What could we do more of? What could we do better? What should we completely abandon? How much gaffer tape should we put over StrYdAs mouth to stop us from killing him? All questions I hope you will answer for us.
Additionally, if you would like to take part, then I throw open the doors to anyone amongst you to join our Steam group (The Astonishingly Badass) and get in touch with us. Heck, maybe we could make a video together!
Finally, I would like to draw your attention to a shameless ploy I concocted to get some more attention. I am giving away RAGE on PC. All you have to do is leave a comment below, either giving us some feedback, or perhaps suggesting your own idea for an advertisement campaign modified with heavy swearing. UK entrants will receive the full packaged game as shown in the video, whereas viewers from abroad will simply receive a message from this account with the Steam code from within. Best suggestion/ fucking advertisement wins!

Thank you watching/reading, and good mental health!
