About
SEGA, Capcom, Square Enix, Nintendo. That is basically all I need to survive.

I enjoy a wide variety of games, I'll play almost any genre, and if I find the game enjoyable I will continue to play it. I try not to limit myself to one particular genre but I always have a weak spot for JRPG's and Platformers. I don't "game to win" or anything like that but I consider myself a "core" gamer. Trophies, Achievements and the like are, however, not something I strive for.

Aside from games I read books, mainly Sci-fi/Fantasy and Spy/Crime fiction but I'm not against others so long as they're good.

I also frequently read comics, in which I usually stick to DC releases and Archie's Sonic The Hedgehog, as well as manga which varies dramatically depending on my mood at the time.

As far as movies and tv goes it is again basically Sci-fi/Fantasy/Crime/Spy fiction etc. I really enjoy the Matrix trilogy and the Stargate TV series.

Music is metal but I can also get into a lot of electronic stuff.

Hey Earthworm Tim, 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?
