About
Who is the DJ? I'm not really a DJ at all to be honest. If you really want to know just ask me...its a long story. I'm a Canadian gamer who reads and writes about video games. I am just as hyped on the industry as I am on playing the games.

What games do I like? I'll try everything and anything twice.

Music is another awesome thing in my life, I've been a part of a lot of fun projects. I'm just learning guitar casually on my own time, but I played drums for about 8 years or so.

Also I work as an compositor (visual effects) in the television and film industry.

Now I know it's been about a million years since I've posted here, but I thought I'd share this with you all. One of my friends and fellow Dtoider, ProfessorPew is doing a research project for his degree on hardcore gaming trends, specifically what consoles people had owned. I decided, hey why no see what my own gaming timeline has been like over my lifetime! I've listed my consoles in order from youngest to oldest, with my age and which games I played the most for that generation.

1989: Gameboy (5 years old)
-Super Mario Land
-Megaman 5
-Fall of the Foot Clan

1991: 386 PC (7 years old)
-Wolfenstein 3D
-Commander Keen
-Duke Nukem

1994: SNES (10 years old)
-Pilotwings
-Super Mario World
-Super Mario Kart

1996: 133 Mhz Pentium (12 years old)
-X-Wing vs TIE Fighter

1998: N64 (14 years old)
-Goldeneye
-Perfect Dark
-Diddy Kong Racing

1999: 500 Mhz Pentium 2 (15 years old)
-X-Wing vs TIE Fighter
-Day of Defeat
-Curse of Monkey Island

2002: Xbox1 (17 years old)
-Halo 1 & 2

2004: 2.0 Ghz Pentium 4 (19 years old)
-Half Life 2
-Day of Defeat: Source

2005: Xbox 360 (20 years old)

-Castle Crashers

2006: Wii (21 years old)

-Zelda Twilight Princess

2008: PS3 (24 years old)
-LBP

Looking back, it's interesting to see how my console gaming was almost perfectly offset from my PC gaming. It's not like I even planned that exactly, my parents were usually the ones buying the computers. As I get older, the gaps in time between consoles got shorter, since I started having my own jobs and income to buy my own stuff. The N64 was the first console I paid for myself and it was such a worthy purchase indeed. I've also noticed that my PC gaming has really decreased in the last generation and is really solely for Half Life games and mods. This could be because of less interest in genres long past like Space combat sims and adventure games.

What about your own gaming timeline? I'd love to see if people had a similar upbringing or if they varied quite a bit from mine. I'll be interested to hear your story, thanks!
