Hey there guys, Cazza here and welcome to my Destructoid page where you'll find my random entries and game reviews. I've always had a strong passion for writing and have been doing game reviews for almost 6 years now. I first started gaming at a young age when we went and got a SNES. First game I ever played was Super Ghouls n Ghosts. Yeah, I started out hardcore. If I had to name a favourite console it would probably be the SEGA Megadrive as it's home to possibly my favourite game of all time, Sonic 3 & Knuckles. Although if I had to choose a non retro game as my favourite, it would go to Dementium: The Ward. A horror FPS for the Nintendo DS created by Jools Watsham and his team over at Renegade Kid. Fantastic game which you should all go out and try.
Outside of gaming, one of my bigger interests are ... yeah you could see this coming from 10 miles away. I have quite a big interest in Anime and Manga. Well Anime more than Manga but its nice to have a shelf filled with books of some sort. Started Anime when I was about 13 with Naruto then I ventured into different series. My favourites would have to be Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Hidamari Sketch, Cromartie High School, Sengoku Basara and Baccano. I'm not that much into manga but I do read a few every now and then. Infact, last time I read manga was when my friend linked me to chapter 1 of Vinland Saga.
Music taste? What's that? Yeah if its me you're looking at, all you're gonna find are Anime openings or Video Game songs. I absolutely love game music, so much. Best soundtrack? In my opinion its most likely the Ace Attorney series. Saying that, I still have a soft spot for 8 and 16 bit music. Dr.Wily Stage 1 anyone?
As a kid I was very much into the Pokémon games. One of my dreams was to go to an event and pick myself up a legendary whilst meeting other fans, trading pokémon and generally having fun. Heck I guess you could say that dream still lingers in the back of my head. Just recently the UK has had an event to get a hold of Arceus, Generation 4's answer to Mew/Celebi ect. Unfortunately, i'm the unlucky son of a bitch who lives in Scotland so obviously we have pretty much no event. Over 20 locations participating in England but only one in Scotland. Now unless I want to spend 4 to 6 hours travelling to Glasgow for a single Pokémon, i'm not getting this Arceus. Even to this day it still upsets me the fact there are never any events here. Hello Nintendo! People live in Scotland who are big Pokémon fans too you know? Faggots. That's what Nintendo are. Only word I can think of this now to sum up my nerd rage.
I guess its not too bad. I could always just say no to Nintendo and Pokesav myself the Arceus. Sure that's cheating but its the only fucking way we'll ever get it. Well at least we're still getting the figure deal for pre-ordering Heart Gold and Soul Silver. Although knowing my past experiences with GAME, it won't go well. Either a case of them not having Lugia figures or not even getting any in stock. Anyway this was just a quick rant blog. Now if you excuse me, i'm off to sit in a corner as I wait the announcement of a Deoxys event before being shot down... again. Pissed off Scottish Pokéfag signing out.
