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.)
That image pretty much sums up what E3 was all about this year, doesn't it? Well, that, and this video:
So, now that we've gotten all of that E3 business out of the way, it's time for me to once again ask the community blogs about what you guys got this week or so in video game things. I'm sure some of you hit up the Steam sale EA was throwing this week (I did not) and some of you probably have gone out to put down preorders for games (I will be doing that once my move is complete for Gran Turismo 5's Collectors Edition, even though I do not currently have a PS3. Think of it as an incentive).
Or, if you're me, you decided to hop back onto Champions Online for a month to check out the updates you haven't touched since you put the game down six months ago when you capped out and got immediately bored of it. And now you're starting to get bored of it again because you're halfway through the new stuff.
Or maybe you're like me and finally bought Castle Crashers because you were waiting to see if it'd go on sale. It did, and the sale is ongoing for today, so if you don't have it, GO BUY IT ALREADY.
Unfortunately, that's it for me this time around in gaming stuff. Nothing quite coming over the horizon just yet, and if the Engineer update for Team Fortress 2 comes along, then ... well, I'll be busy for a bit.
So that's all I got this week, guys and gals. What'd all of you get?
