About
I love gaming, and I know it sounds generic, but gaming has become a way of life for me.
Well I should start by saying how I got into it, and I remember it as if it were just yesterday.....

I used to live in Mexico for a couple of years, and as a result I totally missed American popular culture, from the tv shows to dem games, and yugioh! I wasn't completely oblivious to some games though, I remember the Gameboy Color, and the release of the GBA, everyone wanted one haha. So the year was '99 when I played my first game, it was tax season so my parents came back to do them, and we stayed with our cousins.Oone day they visited some relatives of theirs, and naturally I was bored being in a stranger's house, up until the point they showed me this game, it was Super Smash Bros. for the N64 =) (of course I didn't realize what this game was until MUCH later, hell I didn't know what a "console" was) the first character I chose was Kirby because he could fly, but I got KO'd a lot, so I started using someone that I'd seen before on playing cards,Ppikachu I choose you! fond memories of playing at the Pokemon stadium. Anyways, we finally moved back to the states in late 2001 or early 2002, can't remember, soon after we got a Compaq pc, and it came with a bunch of games as a promo. That's when I got introduced to pc gaming. The games that it came with weren't that great, except for Need For Speed Porsche Unleashed, and Sim City 3000. I guess I got lucky because I developed my taste in games from the early exposure, and the games my older bro got from his friends, they were Expendable Millennium Soldier, and Freespace 2. They just don't make good games like that anymore. Well I'll continue this some other time, I could go on for years after all =p

Hey MigueTK, 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 Put a face on your blog. Your profile pic can be a mug shot of you, or something that represents your hobbies. Make it stand out from the crowd.

Upload an avatar and (optional) change your username

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?
