Jakysan.. thats what my friends call me, its like, a funny way of saying "Jaxon" I guess. Or its like, calling me Jackie Chan, but not exactly. Nonetheless, I'm a gamer. I'm married. I have to fight for time amongst my wifes time, my Xboxs time, my Wiis time...
I've been gaming since the days of my Intellivision. Now The Empire Strikes Back on THAT system was tough! It made Super Empire Strikes Back seem like a cake in the park! I'm not that old. I'm not that young. I look younger than I am. People never believe me when I say I'm only 27ish. I get carded for my boozes all the time.
I like beer. I like nachos. I like Family Guy. I like teh Nintendo classics. I like teh Xbox 360. Eff the PS3.
If you have not yet heard nerdcore rapper, MC Lars, yet... do so. Here is the video to a song on his new album which released toda. The songs "Guitar Hero Hero (Beating Guitar Hero Does Not Make You Slash).
Game related? Maybe.. I mean, if you play games, you will get more references of his than say, your retarded little sister who rocks out to that Cyrus girl..
I'm going to be honest, NEVER PLAYED THIS GAME. But I tell you what, its only because I can't afford to buy too many games at the moment. This economy is lame right now! Works slow! I can't get new games like I used to!
Alas, I would love to play this game. I did get to check out Etrian Odyssey a little on my buddies copy, but he didn't let me play it. It looked good though. I do want it. GAME GET!
Sorry, just had to post a pic of him. Its about all I can think of doing since my wife is watching a show on the hdtv.. I just want to play some GTA before I go to school tonight! GOD I WANNAPLAYITRIGHTNOW!
My wife. I love her dearly. But tonight, I went to drop a deuce, came out to the living room, and shes on my Xbox 360 playing Test Drive Unlimited. GAAAAH! NO! My turn to play! I should never had told her that in that game she can be a girl racer, buy mansions, and also, heres the clincher, buy shoes for her girl racer in the game. She literally is trying to progress in the game... to buy shoes.
I can't just kick her off! Since we've been dating shes said she would let me play the games I wanted and she would have no interest in the 360. Well, since we've been married, shes fell in love with the Xbox Live Arcade games I have. She kicks my tail at Soltrio Solitaire.. but don't let me play her at anything else. She hates losing. So, we play alot of Guitar Hero and Solitaire. She likes the idea of Co-Op games. I'm going to try my damndenest to get her into Halo 3, but it will take work. I got her to try Halo 2 Co-Op. She liked it, once she got used to the controls. But she hated the fact that I shot "EVERYTHING ON THE STUPID SCREEN!".
We're still newly weds. Only been married for two months come this next week. Everythings awesome. But trying to figure her out and figuring out which games she likes or doesn't like to play, is driving me insane.
I've tried startin blogs before. Livejournals.. whatever. If your a geek, then your a geek, and if your a geek, it helps to be with those that are geeks. There wasn't enough geeks amongst the other blog sites I was at. Why am I at Destructoid?
When I'm working, I get to often listen to my ipOd. I quite enjoy keeping my mind busy by listening to podcasts. I use iTunes to download them and a few weeks ago I checked out Podtoid and Retroforce Go! I liked em. A no bullshit, balls to wall, nerds vs geeks vs guys who love games but claim they aren't geeks show. I loved it. If I want to get more into it, I better get more involved than just browsing the site. I've checked out various front page posts here over the past few months and I like what I see. I'm HERE NOW BITCHES!
If anyone, or no one reads this, fine. I'm still going to rant here.
