Darphman 's blog
I am a sniper, a warrior, a rogue, an assassin, a gun runner and adventurer, the only online clone of a Human counter part gamer from the UK.....

Since the dawn of gaming I’ve been addicted. Starting in 1986 when I got my hands on the wooden electronic cartridged Atari 2600. From there it evolved into a Sinclair ZX Spectrum +3 and a SEGA Master System… Over the years the power grew within and the evolution of addiction grew through the NES, SNES, Mega Drive (aka Genesis) and Saturn. Then the PSone and N64 and GameCube. The explosion of having GameCube, PS2 and Xbox killed the collection of consoles to just the Xbox 360… Even though I sneak a go on the Wii at my parents.

What other consoles do/have you owned?

I own:

Xbox 360 (Reach Ltd Edition) and an iMac.

Previously Owned

SEGA: Master System (x3), Mega Drive/Genesis (x1), Game Gear (x1)
Nintendo: NES, SNES (x2), GameBoy (x1), Nintendo DS (x1), N64 (x3), Gamecube (x2)
Microsoft: Xbox (x3), Premium Xbox 360 (x1), Arcade Xbox 360 (x1), Elite Xbox 360 (x1)
Sony: PSone (x4), PS2 (x3)
Others: ZX Spectrum, Amiga, Atari 2600 (look that up) erm There is a few more I think.

Favourite games:

Some of my favourite games Include the obvious Zelda Ocarina of Time and Final Fantasy VII (There hasn't been a decent one since IX in my opinion). To some classics like Mario, Sonic and Earthworm Jim. Of more Modern Times I've enjoyed Burnout Paradise as well as Batman Arkham and both Darksiders games.

Hey Darphman, 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


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?
