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.)
Sorry I fell off the face of the Earth for like a month. Comic Con does that to you. Even if you don't go. But rest assured, I am still alive, and I have bought a few new things to talk about for What'd You Get?
But what did I get? I bought Gratuitous Space Battle, first off, which was last weekend's Steam sale. I haven't had the chance to try it out yet, but at $6 for the whole thing including all DLC, that's not a terrible loss if it sucks.
I also bought all of the Forza 3 DLC on sale that I didn't have (everything except the Hot Holiday Cars pack), so I'll be riding around in my shiny new Kia Forte for a bit. YEEEEEEEEEEEEAH.
I also have a preorder down for Gran Turismo 5's collectors edition. Which might seem odd, as I don't own a PS3. But this is a big incentive for me to get off my ass and actually buy one. Or beg and plead come Christmastime.
That's all for me now. What'd all of you guys get?
