Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.
For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.
I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...
Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.
Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.

(Yes, thatís one of Dtoidís own, Hollie (a.k.a. phoenix-blood). I met her at PAX and she is awesome.)
To say I've been busy last week would only be partially right, because I've also been feeling not so well. Thankfully, I'm better today and I'm able to actually post What'd You Get? for this week. Rejoice!
As per usual, to join in the fun, tell us what you got this week. Gaming-related preferred, but heck, if you got something real nice, go ahead and brag about it here, too :) I won't mind, but some of the other Dtoiders might. :p
This week, I bought two shiny new controllers for my Xbox 360. Well, one's wired and I'll be using it for PC games as needed, too, so that was part of the reason behind it. The other one, of course, being that I've only had one controller for the last, what, 2, 3 years I've owned my 360, so outside of Rock Band, I haven't been able to play any multiplayer games on my own 360 without people bringing controllers.
So the new controllers are all for me this week, as I skipped on games to save up a little bit for other things and pay some bills. What did all of you get?
