Whats up Destructoid?
My name is Sean McLoughlin and I've been sent from the futurepast to march with my fellow robots to victory. For Niero!
My favorite games can be numerous (as I'm sure is true of most here at Dtoid), but my all time favorites are Final Fantasy VI, Diablo II, Bioshock, Braid, Demon's Souls and Metal Gear Solid. I never rent games and I rarely trade in or sell the games I buy so I have a pretty massive game collection. For the sake of space I'll just list the consoles and portables that I own: NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Gear, Game Boy Pocket, Game Boy Advance, Playstation, N64, Playstation 2 (one original which is broken and a Slim), Dreamcast, Gamecube, Xbox, Neo Geo Pocket, Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, PSP 2000, Xbox 360 (red-ringed once), a fully backwards compatible Playstation 3 and a Wii.
I'm a video game designer and an RPI graduate with a degree in Games and Simulation Arts and Sciences. When I'm not working with my development group Darkroom Games or gaming you can probably find me reading a science fiction/fantasy novel or something on Cracked.com. My favorite authors are George RR Martin, Terry Brooks, Garth Nix and Terry Goodkind. I'm also a big fan of movies, my favorites right now are The Departed, Smoking Aces and Crank, although my all time favorite movie/director is Reservoir Dogs/Tarantino. I don't watch much TV and if I do its usually Discovery channel or Science Channel. I love Professional Wrestling, Y2J SAVE US! My favorite band is obviously The Grateful Dead although my musical tastes are quite varied. I listen to everything from T.I. to Metallica to Toby Keith. Also, MC Chris FTMFW!
Hey Destructoid, it's been awhile eh? I've been a busy little robot, let me tell you. I just graduated from RPI with a BAS in Video Games and Simulations Arts and Sciences and a BAS in Communications so I'm looking for a job. On top of that, I got together with some friends (fellow RPI students, soon to be graduates) and we're in the process of creating our own company, one we call Darkroom Games. More information on that will be soon to follow, so keep on eye on the Cblogs if you're interested.
Let's get to the real point of this blog. I feel the word "epic" is thrown around a lot these days and has lost its meaning. That being said, I feel it is appropriate to say that this past Christmas, I got the most epic present I've ever received: a life size statue of Master Chief! It was used in stores to promote Halo 2 and only around 600 of them were made, a number of which were merely thrown out after the promotional period. I feel very lucky to call this guy a part of my collection and would like to state publicly to any women that may consider calling themselves Mrs. DaedHead8 in the future: If you ever ask me to choose between you and the Chief, you'll find yourself lacking a husband very quickly. This guy is going to guard over my apartments and houses for the rest of my life and there isn't a single thing anyone can do to stop it.
