Hi! As I'm new and trying not to suck,here is my semi-manditory intro blog,yay! ...So,my IRL name is Doug and I'm a 35 yr old man-child from Springfield,MO (I live 2 blocks from The Simpsons,no lie :p ) I've been into gaming...
About Blasto One of us since 2:31 PM on 05.02.2009
So... who am I?
Well, I am the guy who headshots you across the map while you're trying to n00b tube my spawn in Call of Duty..
I am the Hunter who pounces on you just as you're in sight of the safehouse in L4D...
I AM THE TERROR THAT FLAPS IN THE NIGHT!!! :0
...sorry, got carried away there :) Seriously, my name is Doug and I am a 35 year old, bi-pedal Earthbased land mammal.
The consoles I have are (in no order of preference):
PS3 ->PSN ID: BlastAssassin<-
And a good old Sega Genesis.
I've been on a PS2 kick lately, catching up on all the awesome games I've missed due to getting too caught up in all the big current gen games hype. I mean,I played Blue frickin' Dragon before Persona 3 !? That's a travesty; and one that I'm currently rectifying. Genres I enjoy (but am not limited to) are RPG's both action and turn-based (preferably WITHOUT random battles,SO annoying), puzzley-type action/adventure games, stealth action games, FPS's and Peggle, or "Crack" as I call it lol.
NVGR, I think Finland has something in the water that makes their Metal bands approximately 183% more awesome than bands from other countries, because there are SO many bands I like from there (Wintersun <3 ,Ensiferum etc.). I do like many styles of music besides Black/ Death/ Folk metal, but alot of people are familiar with the less extreme artists I like so I feel like I gotta pimp Finnish metal lol (*Jari Mäenpäa is THE man*) .
I played drums for around 15 yrs, but haven't played in the last 11 (although I beast the SHIT out of Rockband and World Tour to keep my "hit shit with sticks" skill leveled up. Challenge me sometime... IF YEW GOT DAH BAWLS!) due to not having an appropriate (i.e. soundproof lol) place to setup in addition to work/life responsibilities (FYI: don't get into Health Information Management unless you LIKE something comparable to the sensation of smashing your cock/clit with a sledgehammer daily. And no,I don't think that's an exaggeration lol). But, I still have my sweet ass Tama Starclassic kit awaiting the beautiful day I can return to the love of my life ( don't tell my long-time girlfriend Athena lol ). It WILL happen dammit :) !
So anywho, I think Destructoid is by far the best site for gamers with a great community,a place where intelligence and immaturity can come together in a glorious and beautiful synergy, and I am proud to finally be here after a couple years of lurking.
