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 yeah, I was going to write up this long blog post about what I liked and disliked about the year, but yeah... I just realized that all I really wanted to say was that 2009 was fucking amazing and meeting you guys definitely helped make it awesome. You guys are amazing and I hope that you all have a great New Year.
