Site Update: Community Blogs patches *incoming*   |   Report a bug
Been gaming since I was around the age of 3, no seriously, 3. My older cousin got bored of his NES/SNES (something I refer to be treason) and passed them down to me. That was the building block of my collection of video games, and I plan to keep it growing for years to come =)

I'm a massive nintendo fan (although I don't really have any merchandise aside from games and consoles), and growing to be a bit more of a PC gamer. I've never owned Sega, Sony, or Microsoft products, but I'm a gamer, I love all mind-numbing electronic products =D. I'm up for any genre: FPS, Adventure, Arcade, Beat-em-up, Platformer, etc. I'm not a big fan of JRPG's all that much, because I find the emotions are a bit... overly dramatic, but I'm still up for the gameplay experience.

My favourite series without a doubt is Metroid. When the Nintendo forums were for discussing video games and not helping families figure out how to add a mole to their Mii, I always stuck around the Metroid forum, talking about anything Metroid. I loved the "Create-a" threads, where I applied my odd childhood fascination with lemons (hence my username =P) and came up with a bunch of Citrus-Metroid ideas. I have no idea why, but I also had a childhood fascination with Luigi, and I would always (and still do most of the time) pick him as my character for whatever game he's in.

I have a Steam account under a similar name to my Dtoid account (Steam ID: luigilemonfa), so feel free to add me if you want to play a match of Team Fortress or Left 4 Dead =)

Hey LuigiLemonFan, 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


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?
