About

Hi, I'm still Rab.
I like videogames. I like them alot.
Ever since I could remember, I've always wanted to have a career that somehow allowed me continue to be involved with them. For that reason and pretty much that reason alone, I'm going to college and learning about the different components and things that go into the videogame industry. I like to analyze videogames and see what makes them tick. If a game sucks, I want to understand exactly what makes it suck so hard. To this day I'm still not sure exactly how I want things to pan out, and I don't exactly know what it is I want to do within the game industry, but I know it's going to kick ass.

I like the consider myself a pretty well rounded person when it comes to taste in videogames. As long as the game has well thought out mechanics and fun gameplay, I'll atleast give it a shot.

Games I Currently Play Alot:
CAPCOM vs SNK 2
Super Smash Bros. Brawl
Eternal Sonata
Street Fighter Anniversary Collection
(mostly for Street Fighter III 3rd Strike)
The Orange Box
Mass Effect
Castlevania on XBLA


I spend absurd chunks of time in the arcade at my college playing Capcom vs SNK 2. This game has changed my entire perspective on fighting games as a whole. I used to be one to just take fighting games as just another gaming genre but this game has got me completely hooked on 2 dimensions. At night I dream about landing sick Shoryukens and catching noobs in my Shun Goku Satsu.
I'm also quite partial to a well placed Tatsumaki Senpuukyaku now and then.

Consoles I Hab:
Xbox 360
Xbox
Playstation 2
GameCube
Super Nintendo
Nintendo DS
Sega Dreamcast
Gameboy Advance SP
Gameboy Color

Consoles of days past
(dont hab no more):
Nintendo 64
Playstation
Sega Genesis
NES

Over-rated game of the year:
Assassin's Creed

Like I said, moar boobs:

Hey Mecha Rabb, 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?
