About
Hi. I'm JC. Just those two characters, I don't have a meaning behind it since '03, I just made up a way to extend the character count because many sites and games won't accept 2 character alias.

I've been gaming since late 80s or early 90s, I really don't remember. I started on the NES as a kid and had trouble crossing the gap in SMB until I figured out how to run and jump. Problem solving through trial and error in many NES games just led me to figure things out and feel that I have a knack to play many games decently if not above average.

I've owned NES, Sega Genesis, SNES, PS1, N64, DC, PS2, GCN as my console systems and had plenty to play and enjoy over the years. My first venture on PC was an MMO called Ragnarok Online that I beta tested to replace PSO as my new addiction since DC support died shortly after PSO launched.

I never gamed on PC besides a few games here and there, and I was afraid of M+KB controls. I continued on consoles until the death of the PS2. I did own a Wii, but I never did much with it besides Monhan and even that was disappointing overall. It just wasn't a good monhan compared to Portable or frontier to me.

I built my first rig in '08 and it is still kicking strong with just 2 upgrades, and that's currently where I game the most. I don't favor consoles right now, and prefer the handhelds for the RPG genre that I love. I've yet to get a 3DS though... I still love my PSP and DS the most. My Vita gets most of the love out of my handhelds at this time.

I'd love to try blogging, but it isn't something I'm good at keeping time with. I also tried something similar on 1up back in 03 iirc, and people were pretty angry at me for my opinion or for not keeping up with news. That may change but I don't know. I'm not eloquent with my words and can be bad at getting my point across. Nice to meet you though.

Hey JayCee, 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

CHECK!

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?
