Chrissomerry 's blog
Some dude from that country that's in the south of Asia and has those hopping animals that have eyes and stuff. Been a life long gamer really, was just old enough to be able to appreciate the original gameboy when it came out, got the gameboy pocket, gameboy advance and then SP before it was promptly stolen, then the DS, PSP and DSi, the former of the three being broken by a sibling, and consoles, well, Sega Master System, Super Nintendo, PSone, PS2, Wii, and a couple of old PC's before getting my freakishly capable-of-running-crysis mac mini.

Although what I do regret about all that is that out of all those consoles, I only really ever got a good amount of games for the PS1, PS2, PSP and DS (computer doesn't count). But now, while the games have finally gotten cheap, the game consoles seem to be skyrocketing in price!
Fukou da!

RE most played games, probably the DS Pokémons through some blackmagic that makes no sense to me (160hrs? Not sure how I managed that when if felt so fast), Valkyria Chronicles 2, Phantasy Star Portable 2, things like Call of Duty 4 and Age of Empires 2/3, Ys7, Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker (now that felt like it went on forever (in a positive way)). Actually, if you haven't played any of them I'd probably recommend all of them (PSP2 is a bit nichish though), although things like Crysis, Halo, any Pokémon (preferably the latest), Valkyria Chronicles, and Dead Space (PS3/iPhone/Whatever), I'd have to say are some of the best gaming experiences I've had over my life.

Hey Chrissomerry, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar Put a face on your blog. Your profile pic can be a mug shot of you, or something that represents your hobbies. Make it stand out from the crowd.

Upload an avatar and (optional) change your username

2) Write a brief bio


3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
