I am a Ph. D. chemist from the University of California, Berkeley. I have been playing videogames since as long as I can remember! My past favorite games include Secret of Mana, TMNT: Turtles in Time, the Resident Evil series (Jill is SUCH as master of unlocking), FFVII, Smash Bros Melee, and many others.
I've definitely gone through phases in my gaming "career". I used to LOVE fighting games in the time of Tekken Tag and Marvel vs Capcom II (my favorite fighting game), but now I find myself drawn to the more story driven games, and very recently, the music games....:)
But....fighting games are making a comeback! SFIV! MvC3! BlazBlue! Beware everyone, Tactix has put a quarter on the screen and is challenging you for battle!
It was mere chance that brought me to Destructoid back in early 2007, and through it all I've stayed because of the great writing staff, a community that cares, and lots of new internet and IRL friends. Destructoid has changed my life. True story.

Today is a special day, cause everyone's favorite wine-drinking, Survivor-loving, Blanka-playing editor is one year older!
So, here's to Jonathan Ross, also known as Aerox! Thanks for all the Fanboy Fridays and for being an amazing person!
I especially want to thank you for being so accommodating and letting me crash at your place anytime I want to visit the most wonderful people of DtoidLA. If it weren't for you, I probably would never have slid down a humongous slide, been tricked on going on Colossus, and had a blast in West Hollywood :D
Here are some pics just for JRo! Everyone enjoy, and wish Jonathan a Happy Birthday!!
