Hello! The idea here is to introduce myself and my gameroom.
I've been lurking on destructoid for a good year now and I read the site every morning over breakfast, sometimes over tea. I also listen to the podcasts, I've probably heard every RFGO retroactively.
I'm a confused gamer. There's just so many damn games! It can be overwhelming but you have to love them and the variety. I enjoy listening to RFGO talk about old games, they open my eyes to games I might have otherwise missed. But I also like the new stuff! I guess my point is I like to try new things regardless when the game was made.
Music is an aboslute integral part of videogames, My all time best music in a game is Homeworld and Metroid Prime. I love chiptunes and the sound of analog/soft synths. Also, remixes of outrun on http://www.slayradio.org
This here website is mine: http://brn.ath.cx
And here it is, my gaming room with custommade TVstand. Already expanded this a couple of times with the shelf and another layer under the TV but I wish I had even more space .. and somewhere to put my A500 :)
Normally I hate daylight ;)
Left of TV: PS2
Below TV top: PS3, Silverstone case (VIA EPIA EX 15000, used as mediacenter PC and Linux server)
Below TV bottom: HT-DDWG800 receiver, i love this thing because it features loads of component/HDMI connections, it provides decent sound too. And to the right of that, honorary spot for a Sega Saturn, shmup and spritemonster of my heart.
Top shelf: Speakers,SFC,Wii
On Table: DC,GC
On to the games!
I guess pictures of collections can give other people a hint of who you are and what you are interested in?
I know!, a meager collection of SNES games.. needs more Super Metroid. That down there in the left corner is my entire collection of movies..
PSP and DS:
The Last Guy
1942: Joint Strike
Bionic Commando Rearmed
Super Stardust HD
Wolf of the battlefield Commando 3
Noby Noby Boy
Super Streetfighter 2 Turbo HD Remix
These are actually imported NTSC versions, yeah.. I went a little bit crazy for a while there..
Ahh.. "50 great games", I actually played through most of them at the time.
Now wait a minute..
That Triclops game made me feel sick... wait.. this was later made into a BBC television series, The Tripods?
A few years ago I watched the Tripods, that was good stuff :)
That's all for now. Thanks for reading! read
