About
Hello everyone that is taking the time to read this! I am Kreyg, I run my own gaming blog, Hot Blooded Gaming. I have been a gamer since I was 4 years old. Ever since the original NES Iíve held controllers in my hands. I feel as I grew up, the games grew with me, which has been an awesome experience. Gaming has been a big part of my life. Video game characters like Solid Snake have inspired me to try and always go the distance and never give up. While people say video games are bad, they have inspired me in good ways and taught me to never quit.

If you ever want to talk about games, feel free to contact me, I love a good discussion or even a good debate(no fanboys, you're impossible to talk to)

Some favorite games:
Metal Gear Solid 1 & 4, Halo: CE, GTA Vice City, Fallout 3, Super Mario Brothers 1 & 3, Mafia 2 because of obvious reasons..cough 50 Playboy Pictures cough...

Some favorite genres:
First Person Shooters, Sandbox, Side Scrollers

Some favorite music:
Michael Angelo Batio, Metallica, Jimi Hendrix, Iron Maiden

Some favorite sites:
Hot Blooded Gaming, Destructoid, Kotaku, Justin.tv

Hey Kreyg D, 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?
