Has Armageddon Come Early?

Thankfully, no. It's just Diablo 3. Wait, what am I saying? It's Diablo 3! That's right, for any out there who have been following the mystery surrounding Blizzard's splash screen teaser on their site, this comes as no sur...


Will Wright is a God [Part One]

But that isn't what this post is about, not entirely at least. Last night I had the distinct pleasure to sit in on an hour and a half long lecture that Will Wright made at the Emily Carr school of design in Vancouver, BC. ...


Age of Conan: My First Impressions

So Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures has just been released and the public servers are now up and running. But with so many MMOs out and about nowadays, why should you spend your hard-earned dough on this one? Well, I don't...


What Happened to the EA I Used to Know?

Well, it has been quite some time since I last made a post here, but dealing with your final school quarter and being perpetually lazy will do that. In any case, this is but a continuation of the saga of the once mighty Enter...


Can't We All Just Get Along?

Obviously the hot-button topic at the moment is the depiction of racism in the Resident Evil 5 trailers, and frankly, I'm glad that it is. We should be angry about this. But not about the supposed racism in Resident Evil 5, w...


An Insult on Two Fronts

We should all be well aware of how moronic, ill-informed, and just plain awkward the political spectra are when it comes to games, America and England in particular. They can hardly be blamed for this, however; after all, sim...


Not My Turning Point gaming Greetings

Hello everyone! As this is my first post here I toyed with the idea of conjuring up some attempt at expressing to the community at large how much I have enjoyed lurking in your midst for the past year or so, wiling away preci...


About Elandarexone of us since 2:41 PM on 03.14.2008

Hello Destructoid, my name is Elandarex (which happens to be an anagram for my real, exceptionally common name) and I am a Gamer, which I have been led to believe is an immoral, socially bankrupt wretch of a creature. Of course, this sits just fine with me given the alternative!

I came to gaming relatively late compared to most gamers I know and despite the occasional brush with Nintendo systems my main gaming past time was playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons with my friends. Eventually I was introduced to Nights Into Dreams and it soon came to be that my first gaming console, a Saturn, was in my possession.

Still, it wasn't until Final Fantasy VII that I became totally embroiled in gaming, and ultimately, my life was signed over to gaming after spending countless hundreds of hours adventuring in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. After entering into the Church of Bioware I knew I should give up my long standing aspirations of becoming a Paleontologist and enter into an unholy pact with video gaming.

Since then, I have worked towards getting a job in the industry and am currently finishing up with an education in Game Programming over the next few months. Reading Destructoid for the past year has helped me maintain some semblance of sanity in the midst of many of the more psychotic gaming types at school and I felt that it was long past due that I quit my lurking and joined in with this unparalleled gaming community!

Note: I'm not too fond of this profile at the moment but am also far too lazy to make any changes to it at the moment, a common trend in my various dealings.
