About
Myself:

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.

Hey guys!

I'd thought I'd share with you all this photoblog of Xzyliac's PAX adventures on Sunday!



It started in the morning at the swanky Hyatt at Olive 8. Xzyliac was a tad hungover from the previous night but made sure to wake up in time to check out the show floor!



He decided to call up some friends to meet up, and he met Chad Concelmo in his hotel room ready to head out as well!



He had a huge all you can eat breakfast with Chad, Joshhest, and some other people to get enough energy for the day :D



He decided to check out some of the cool stuff on the show floor like Mortal Kombat....



.....this awesome Metroid Other M chalk drawing.....



....and the free play room where he got to play Shank!



He went out to dinner, where Ali D had set up a shrine in his honor,



and then went out to Rock Bottom where he met up with Dtoiders JohnnyViral, Qalamari, Funktastic, and awesome avatars such as GamesAsArt and Ryu89!


All in all, Xzyliac had a great time at PAX and misses you all so much!!
