Well, to cut a long story short... a gamer since the days of the Atari 2600, Gabriel Silverwolf has been through hell and back. In the console wars, he started in the Nintendo camp during the 8-bit era, only to shift allegiance and join the Sega forces during the 16-bit era. After these two grueling console wars, he sought the quiet haven of the PC for years, only abandoning it during the final years of the 32-bit era to embrace the Playstation way, then briefly flirting with the doomed Dreamcast. From then, he hung on to Sony's banner during the glorious PS2 days and the not-so glorious early PS3 days. Today, he is older and wiser. He loves his games; his Dreamcast, PS2, PS3, PSP and DS Lite sit in his room; the survivors of the long and arduous journey of gaming. The PC is still a friend, and he uses it occasionally to get a taste of forbidden fruit like Gears of War, though he has so far resisted the lure of MMORPGs. He was also captivated by the Witcher, and Stracraft II and Diablo 3 will probably reignite a spark he long suspected was gone.
When not annoying the living crap out of people by knifing and dual-shotgunning them in CoD:MW2, rearranging the face of Greek mythology, or partaking in another game-related activity, Gabriel enjoys the company of books and comics. King and Gaiman rule the bookshelf alongside a myriad of classical masterpiece from Tolstoy to Salinger. His comics are mostly from the Marvel stable, with emphasis on books that have an "X" in the title, though an undying love for the Caped Crusader and John Constantine keep the DC logo around.
Television isn't his best friend, though he does like some CSI, Bleach and South Park. His DVD collection is an odd one; the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, the Big Lebowski, Silence of the Lambs, the original Star Wars Trilogy, Buffy, Cowboy Bebop, Hellboy, the Descent, Ghost in the Shell (movies and series), the complete Alien and Predator collection (minus AVP2), Firefly and Serenity... the list is long and, quite frankly, confusing.
So... nerd status confirmed. Where do we go from here? The net is vast and limitless. See ya around, Space Cowboy.
Hmmmm... been a while since I've tried to participate in this "blogging" that kids these days seem to find so interesting. Maybe it has to do with my short attention span (cat DNA, God knows what some of my ancestors were doing with their pet cars) and my inability to commit to anything that doesn't produce profit and/or enjoyment.
So... why the hell am I doing this? Why am I typing this drivel? Well, I just signed up here (to comment on a Jim Sterling post, big surprise) and I saw there was a blog. Given my hatred of seeing an empty space, I just went ahead and wasted several minutes of my internet porn time to hastily patch together a banner (representing my console history), writing a rambling and somewhat crazy bio, and, yes, typing inane things here for this, my inaugural Destructoid blog. Dun dun dun!
So, yes, this has no point. Occasionally, when the hibernating brain cells in my skulls are jolted, something mildly interesting might pour out of my mind. When and if that happens, this is where said interesting thing will end up. Until then... I dunno. I guess you can go look at porn or something.
