About
Well, what is there to say about me? I'm kinda like your average gamer: I like to play games, I like to talk about games, and I hope to work in the video game industry one day. I also hope to write a couple of visual novels (I'm writing out the story as a novel at the moment, but I'll probably get down to it one of these days) but I should probably get my life together first.

I do tend to enjoy videogames more than the average gamer would though: videogames have been my life for as long as I remember so it's as much a part of me as my personality. I can't imagine giving this up.

I have a wide variety of taste when it comes to games as I try to keep an open mind about everything that comes out: just because I play mainstream games Halo and Call of Duty doesn't mean I can't enjoy the underrated ones like Anarchy Reigns, Fire Emblem, and the like. I'm willing to give anything a fair shot... provided that I actually get a chance to play it.

If you want to know more about me, you can check out my contribution to the "10 things about ourselves" blog, that Mr. Andy Dixon asked us all to write as well as any other personal blogs here:
"10 Thing about Me!".
"Top 10 Favorite Videogames!
"Most Life-Changing Game"
"Top 10 Fetishes"




I am also writing blogs about videogame themed doujinshi (yes, really). I'm just starting, so there aren't many written yet, but the few that are written can be seen here. If you enjoy these, feel free to message me on any recommendations, suggestions, or if one of the images I've chosen is too naughty. :P

Part 1: Monster Hunter and Kid Icarus: Uprising

Part 3: Blazblue

Hello there, fellow Dtoiders! I just wanted to whip up a quick blog to wish those who celebrate this jolly occasion a Merry Christmas and a happy holidays for the people who don't! I wanna say stay safe, be careful partying, and take this time to, in the words of T.I., "stop lookin' at what you ain't got, start being thankful for what you do got."

Yeah, yeah, not only is that not videogame-related, I just referenced a rapper most of you probably hate; hell, most of you probably hate rap in general (but I feel it would be inappropiate to start quoting songs from Brutal Legend or something). However the context, the words still ring true: appreciate what you have because who knows how long you'll have it? If you love your family, love your friends, and love your life, then take this time to just appreciate it while you're sitting by the fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa (or, in my case, in front of the air conditioner unit with an ice cold Coke in my hands because it's still frickin' hot in sunny frickin' Florida).

Anyway, y'all probably wondering: just who is this guy wishing everyone a merry Christmas? Truth be told, while I've been around Destructoid for a while, having blogs that date back to '09, I never really been here: as Zuckerhund put it, I'm the Gordan Freemans of this site: the silent reader, the guy who goes to Dtoid for the news and watch the comments; it's only recently, like maybe a couple of months ago, that I've been actively commenting on stories, and only a couple of days ago I started trekking the community blogs for blogs other than my own.



Well, whatever: better late than never, right? I got into this site because I love the staff's personality, but really, it's the community that makes it shine. While I plan to "formally" introduce myself (I say "formally" because, let's be honest, you can tell by the way I type that I'm anything but) after New Years, a real quick explanation for why I want to be a part of this community is because I ain't too close with many people; this goes for my family and friends, and I loved you guys (from reading the comments) so much that I just wanted to be a part of all this.

Yeah, you probably see me in the comments section, trying hard to get attention, but I'm thankful that you guys haven't shunned me (yet, at least... though, hopefully never) and I appreciate y'all putting up with me and letting me be a part of this. Who knows, maybe I'll be a person we recognize on a dime like Benny Disco, Occam's Electric Toothrbush, Sephzilla, and the rest of you (can't name you all).

Until then, that's enough about me: Merry Christmas, happy holidays, stay safe, don't dress up like Santa Claus and ask kids to sit on your lap, and definitely don't be a victim of the former.
