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:

I'm surprised that one of these hasn't popped up yet, what with PAX being right around the corner and all. So here it is, I want someone to adopt my avatar so that I can vicariously live all of the drunken debauchery and good times that is PAX (also because I'm super jealous of everyone going, all of you suck).

Take a look, for a moment, in to the eye's of my sad avatar:



Look at those eye's, sad, lonely....longing for the touch of someone attending PAX. Don't you want to see those eye's full of life again? Don't you want to know that you can sleep a little better at night because you helped a zombie with 80's metal clothing and an Afro fulfill one of his life long dreams?

Here are some compelling reasons why you YES YOU should adopt ChillyBilly's avatar for PAX:

1. My avatar is a zombie. In case you hadn't heard, zombies are the "it" thing right now. Whether you like it or not they aren't going away any time soon.

2. My avatar has both Afro and 80's metal clothing. Because of the clothing and Afro my avatar transcends cultures, it is and has become, it's own culture. Wouldn't you want to carry around something so culturetastic?

3. I'm insanely jealous of everyone going to PAX. While carrying around my avatar you could mock it and remind it of how awesome you are and how lame his owner is, thus making you feel superior the entire time you are at PAX.

Eleventeen: My avatar is no good with numbers and counting, as seen by this list of reasons. (seriously, "eleventeen"? That's not even a number)

6. Because this is the first time that I have officially asked for my avatar to be taken to PAX. Think about it, you would have the honor of breaking my avatar at PAX cherry. Imagine all the tail you'll get after telling people about that one!

And last but not least number 7. Here is a picture of my daughter:



Look at her. She loves video games and she LOVES Mario. Can you imagine the smile on her face when she hears that someone is taking her dad's avatar to PAX?!?!? Can you imagine the excitement that she will be filled with knowing that her dad's avatar may pass by someone who is cosplaying as Mario or Luigi?

Imagine.........

Thank you for taking the time to read my plea, hopefully there is a kind soul amongst you, kind enough to take my avatar to PAX, kind enough to make this poster happy and kind enough not to let a little 6 year old girl who loves video games down.
