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've been lurking a bit lately, guys: just the usual job stuff has been throwing me a curve so I've been working on managing my time around that. And yes, it takes a lot of time management for things to go smoothly for me. Heck, I'm probably running late to something as we speak ...
But none the less, I've remembered to post yet another edition of What'd You Get?, where the community comes together to show off all the cool shit they've bought since last time.
As you might have guessed by the title, I got one big thing these past two weeks: an invite to a beta for which I'm not allowed to talk about it. It's a pretty fun game, if a bit flawed and pretty laggy so far in just the closed beta ... which makes me fearful of how bad it'll get when open beta hits. >.> Oh, and I've been trying to get those new hats and weapons in TF2. So far, not much success. And I almost bought Battlefield: Bad Company 2, until I realized it wasn't through Steam so I'd have to deal with SecuROM and I didn't want any part of that. Yuck.
That's all for me this time around: what'd all of you get?
