Why I Love Myself

Oh right, this about Dtoid. In that case I'll just copypasta my year one blog.

Oh right, this about Dtoid. In that case I'll just copypasta my year one blog.

It was December 31st 2007 when I first visited Destructoid and decided to sign up. Too be honest I don't really remember alot of the occasion; I mean it wasn't exactly something I thought would change my life as drastically as it has. I guess I just thought I'd try a different community for a while. So I signed up, had a look around and stayed, eventually becoming the only community I would be at on the internet.

Destructoid's writers have always felt like they're writing as one of us. They're not some just "professional games journalists" who writs like they have the emotions of a Terminator but are opinionated people with a good sense of humour and knowledge. Not much else I can think of but if I enjoy them, then I know Destructoid's writers must be doing something right.

Podcast (or more importantly, Podcastle)
To be honest, IMO the podcasts on Destructoid are alright. Just alright. Podtoid is decent but just feels like any
other gaming podcast and I just don't like RFGO, it isn't my thing. (I'll start running once I've posted this)
However, ironically the one that most people don't like is the one I love. Ever since I listened to Podcastle for the first time (the Wilbo Sean Connery episode I believe) I've been downloading every new episode for my biweekly dose of Jim, Lauren and Wardrox. It might be the Britishness of it all, or the humour, or even that it doesn't just stick purely to gaming discussion. It just melds all together into 1-2 hours of audiosex. Plus, live Podcastles where we all take the piss out of Wardrox? Just awesome. The Podcastle might be over now but I can't wait for what Jim, Lauren and Wardrox bring us next.

Probably the most important reason. From some of the funny comments in the blogosphere, to shits and giggles during Friday Night Fights, to looking down on the AAA Squad in the forums or just chatting with everyone in IRC (and let's be honest, that's a lot). I've just fallen in love with the Destructoid community (Except thebez, but fuck that guy). It's the first community I've truly felt a part of, and I look forward to spending many more years with the community.

I look forward to hopefully many more years of fun and laughs. Or something.

P.S Cblogging still doesn't work with Chrome? Lame.
