New Site Madness: Almost there! Code updates hourly   |   Report a bug
Frickincarl 's blog
Well hi there!
My name is Dustin but I go by quite the slew of nicknames.
I'm known on WoW as Frickincarl of Bronzebeard (armory me!)
But most of the time my Gamer Tag is Megalamoniacal.
Now some of you are saying "Hey! You spelled it wrong!"
Well! You wouldn't believe the amount of people who tell me that in-game and fail in their attempts once they try to say it.
It became pretty damn funny to me so the name has stuck.
I'm new so this will be heavily edited later.
Until then here are games I am currently playing:

World of Warcraft (Bronzebeard US)
Half Life 2: Episode 2 (Just finished it tonight and HOLY SHIT I WANT EP 3 NOW!!)
World of Goo (never got around to this game so I picked it up on steam earlier. Enjoying)
Braid (Still has me puzzled for days)
Warcraft 3 (Coming back for the story. It saddens me that soon I will be defeating the Lich King)
Team Fortress 2
Counter-Strike: Source
Thief Deadly Shadows (Great game. I was recommended it a while ago and finally picked it up.)
Starcraft (A constant classic among my friends. We play occasionally)

That's about it for now. As you can see I juggle quite a few games. I keep a lot of games around to give me frequent breaks from WoW. I raid 2-3 days a week. We are casual so I pass the time outside of WoW with games I can just pick up and play.
I do own a 360 but I just became an owner. It took a while for me because I've owned consoles in the past and I've always been more of a fan of my PC games. Not that I'm an Elitist, but, well I guess I sort of am.

Hey Frickincarl, 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


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?
