I guess I was a hardcore gamer before I knew what hardcore gaming was. I'm a 35 year old lifelong gamer who lives in Campbell, CA with his wife and son. I currently work at an MMO/online gaming company in the Bay Area. I used to post on Destructoid a lot more often than I do now, but I have a lot less free time now that I have a family.
I took over Dtoid Community Discusses from Tactix for a short bit until I started working in the industry full time. If you are interested in checking them out, I have them linked below.
I will also be doing a podcast with Hubert from Flixist in the near future. We are just ironing out some kinks in regards to production and finding time where our schedules sync, but I'm sure I'll be posting about that later.
==Games I'm playing now.==
Tomb Raider (PC)
Thomas Was Alone (PC)
Hotline Miami (Vita)
So a few months back, one of my friends over at Cryptic asked me if I wanted to be put in Champions Online as an NPC character. Of course this made me really excited and I agreed. I didn’t really think much about it until this message popped into my Facebook page yesterday….
I was impressed to see that you showed up as Timothy "7 Fingers" Erbil in Champions Online. How did you pull that one off?”
So yeah, I haven’t gotten around to playing the game yet… my video card is dead and I’m currently using onboard video, but apparently I’m one of the leaders in a prison riot. It’s an open world mission, so people will be beating me up constantly.
So yeah, I’ll end this post with a quote from my brother when I told him the news.
It’s pretty cool though. Being put in a video game is one of the better geek honors.... maybe just short of being made into a webcomic character or being a Star Wars extra.”
