About
Take a gander, I've gotta lotta good things on sale, stranger...
Well... I'm nothing short of a man mountain with hair and an attitude that sways me towards the whole 'try not to be vein whilst writing in these about threads, but still try to be cool and informative' type of attitude. I'll be cool and say I'm an athiest, although, if there is anything... I'd love to know. In September I'll be rolling in a Games Development course at Barnsley College, with my main interest being in story development and conceptual art. I think the stuff i'll be making would be pretty break through shit [Smile]

I love sci-fi and fantasy: from miniatures to books to games and music.
I like serial killers, philosophers, electronics, biology, metal, indie, prog and making things.
Basically, I'm a walking nerdy cliché that fits the mould of your typical girlfriendless, un-sociable loser... actually, I am pretty sociable if the dood I'm talking to is rad.
I don't like to argue about stuff and I'm not as bad as I sound in this about section... hm, there's loads more, but i can't be bothered typing.
Well, i enjoy punctuation when i REEEEALLLY need it, but sometimes, it just looked cooler with lower case stuff.
I don't like making sense, and if i think of anything crazier and intelligent to put here... i will!

I got into gaming as a kid, man. Always loved it.
My favourite games right now are Bioshock, Gears, Enslaved, World of Warcraft and... to throw in the cooler old school aspect... Dungeons and Dragons.

Right now I'm playing World of Warcraft... dood, you just can't stop playing that. But in terms of completion... a cool game called Blades of Time, and also Where the Wild Things Are, which is an amazing counterpart to both the book and the film.

Hey Danouro, 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 CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

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?
