Who the heck am I? Besides starting with an "original" intro paragraph (as you'll read or not), I consider myself a pretty awesome individual. Ouch, that sounds full of egotism if I've ever seen it. I'll start with my screen name: MKSKILLZ16. The "MK" segment of the name suggests immense lust over the infamously violent fighting series, sadly, those are just my initials. "SKILLZ"? Well, my uncanny abilities to rage quit many an online fps game lobby, mixed with my talents in the realm of utter dissappointment and loss, speak for themsleves. And "16" is not my age, rather I have an affintiy for this number for multiple reasons. By being the proud owner of a laptop computing system, and a relatively cheap internet service, I am able to place my thoughts on these intangible pages displayed on one of my favourite gaming sites. I appreciate any any and all feedback on blog posts, and promise to not waste anyone's time (that's Kurt Vonnegut's rule for a successful writer).
Question: What does MKSKILLZ16 like?
Answer: Videogames, movies, books, etc.
Here be ye olde liste of proverbial "likes":
Videogames: Dr. Mario (the unabashed Tetris rip-off), God of War series, Dead Space, Batman Arkham Asylum, GTA IV, Jet Moto, Mario Kart 64, Sly Cooper series (I'm not a furry, just a fan of SuckerPunch), Galaga, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare (the first one for anyone who may think I missed the foul sequel digit). These are just a few that come surging to memory at the moment of writing, however, there are many more just as entitled yet unmentioned.
Movies: The Dark Knight (I'm a semi-hardcore comic book fan), Watchmen (see!), Spiderman 2 (Lordy!), Kill Bill 1 and 2, The Big Lebowski, A Serious Man, A Clockwork Orange, Office Space, and Cold Souls.
Books: The Fountainhead, Atlas Shrugged, 1984, Sirens of Titan, Cat's Cradle, All the Pretty Horses, The Gum Thief, JPOD, Microserfs, All Families are Psychotic, Generation X and A, Girlfriend in a Coma, and any novels with my main mang Peter Parker in them.
Authors: In no particular order: Douglas Coupland, Kurt Vonnegut, and Ayn Rand.
Thus concludes the likes portion of this introduction post, which technically isn't my virgin post on Destructoid, that honour goes to my wall of text regarding establishment of preconcieved notions regarding game quality. I hope this suffices as a pretty good get to know me, there will be more in coming weeks.
P.S. I'm new to the format of this site and how it will display future works, please be patient, I'm actively rectifying the issue. Again I promise not to waste too much of your time, time which I value as the most important thing we have on this planet, so if a post sucks similar to the latest Sex in the City movie, tell me all about it. I'm not the type of person who will get butt hurt over criticism.
One Last Thing: My language at times may be crude, simple, verbose, flagrant; however, it will always attempt to provoke thought in the reader (besides this post which will probably only provoke mild amusement or boredom at the long-winded nature of my writing). read
