About

I'm the Community Playdate Manager for Destructoid. Looking to play some games with other Dtoiders? Check out the forums and watch the blogs and front page for all of the fun!

I guess I'm more "collector" than gamer these days. Sure I still play my 360/Wii/DS/3DS and so on, and I love them all, but I just don't have the free time to play them like I used to.

I started my gaming life on an old Atari 2600 that my dad bought us for Christmas. I used to frequent the local arcade (early 80's) and I have a passion for anything pinball.

You may not know this but I also help run the Xbox 360 FNF side of business on Dtoid. You can always host or find games to play here: Friday Night Fights Forum Thread

As of this update (1.09.2012) I currently have:

33 Consoles
47 Handhelds
1562 physical copies of various games
155 digital copies of games
Tons of other video game related items

I'm also a huge comic book nerd, here are some of my all-time favorites, in no particular order:


Cerberus the Aardvark


Groo the Wanderer


Howard the Duck


Usagi Yojimbo


BatMan

I also love music, all types really. If I had to pick a favorite album of all time I would have to go with:


The Cure: Disintegration. This album is perfect, from beginning to end.

My daughter is also a gamer of sorts, here she is lavishing in all of her Nintendo plushies:


Oh yea, did I mention that I love Pinball more than any other game ever? Because I totally do.


I also like to doodle when I'm bored, as seen below

I drew that when I was bored.

Sometimes, when I'm not gaming or collecting I'll post blogs, here are a couple recent ones:

Well it appears as though I've been a busy little bee over the past 2 1/2 months. I didn't realize that I had amassed so much stuff!! I've been cruising around town hitting up different Goodwill locations and various thrift stores to find some sweet gaming goodness. Below is what I have bought or haggled for since February 1st, 2009.

On to the show!


First we have the obligatory "boxed" sets or collectors editions of Resident Evil 5 and RockBand's AC/DC Track pack (two reasons why I bought the AC/DC game, 1. I like AC/DC and 2. Wal-Mart had it marked down to 24.99)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Next we have some Xbox 360 games: In order from left to right, top to bottom: SW:TFU, Star Ocean, Spider-Man: Web of Shadows, Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection, Street Fighter IV and Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here we have some more Xbox 360 games, same order as above: Tetris Evolutions, Tales of Vesperia, F.E.A.R 2, Guitar Hero Aerosmith (9.99 at Target), Mercenaries 2 and Sega Superstars Tennis.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Found this at Target marked down to 29.98, X Blades for the Xbox 360 (Haven't opened yet so not sure if I will like it or not)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now the Nintendo stuff! Dewey's Adventure, Luigi's Mansion, MadWorld and Mario Power Tennis Wii
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Chun-Li Street Fighter IV controller because honestly I need all the help I can get at this game.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Miscellaneous swag: Rise of the Argonauts pre-order art book, F.E.A.R 2 pre-order book and my Club Nintendo DS game rack.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My old school NES game finds: Mario/Duck Hunt, SuperSpike V-Ball / World Cup, Baseball, Track and Field, Golf and Bionic Commando.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My Game Boy finds: Centipede / Millipede, 720, Monopoly and Double Dragon II.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Game Boy Color with box (although I'm a bit disappointed that the box is ripped)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Game Boy with box, Tetris for Game Boy and back-up Game Boy just in case

Not pictured is my Game Boy Advance (with original box and packaging AND M&M's Game Boy Advance game in its original box as well) that is currently in the mail on its way to me, I will take a pic when it arrives.

I'm sure the next 2 1/2 months will be just as exciting for me and my collection and when I feel I have enough stuff I'll make another post.

Happy Gaming!
