Hi there! I'm MeanderBot. I enjoy video games. My video game playing history begins like many others: someone across the street got an NES, then I stumbled across a used stack of Nintendo Power at a swap meet, and soon enough I was spending more time with a controller in my hand then lying in my bed.
As mentioned above, I'm a bit of a Nintendo fanboy. Though I'd like to think I'm open minded enough to not get needlessly insulted whenever someone slights Ninty, while being able to acknowledge its shortcomings. But if it's got a big red N on it, chances are it will fall within my sphere of desire. I have every other current gen system, and thanks to the rediscovery of a local swapmart, I've pulled my SNES and NES out of storage so I can agonize over trying to get the damned things to work. I also try to do some gaming on my crappy PC, which usually ends up being either six+ old games, or indie games. Which is pretty much all I could ask for.
Outside of zeroes and ones, I'm also interested in skateboarding, drawing, photography and drinking a metric asston of soda. But that stuff's boring.
We tend to take advantage of the kindness of others. Especially when it comes to characters in video games. Take Yoshi, for example. Without asking for a thing in return, he selflessly carries you on his back for countless miles, aiding you in your epic journey and how do we repay him? Make him eat obviously hazardous materials, like cacti, spiny turtles and freaking FIREBALLS? And anyone who says they had never damned their reptilian friend to a bottomless pit to save their own hide is a dirty liar. So with that said, I'll leave you with this: What goes around, comes around.
(I was hoping there would be more to this, but I waited until the last minute, caught a cold and now I can't look at a computer monitor for longer than five minutes without my head feeling like it has a bouncy castle inside of it full of chaotic children. So this is going to have to be it for this month. Waaaa
