"Nihil" is the pseudonym I use for writing / gaming on the internet. I came across Destructoid by searching for information on Way of the Samurai 3. Tubatic had the most comprehensive coverage on it I'd seen anywhere.
For that, and for leading me to this community that has changed the course of my life, I thank him.
I started gaming in kindergarten, when the most advanced piece of hardware I could get my hands on was a black plastic handle and an orange button attached to a brick. I used it to blow up little squares on a black and white television screen. A couple years later, I was molested by the girl next door after beating her copy of The Legend of Zelda. I have mixed feelings about the experience.
Unfortunately, over the years, my ability to maintain a passion for games has waned (as in being able to play through them start-to-finish). This is due to various reasons and issues that would be too emo to get into at this juncture. But even though my passion has waned, my interest in them has not, thanks in great deal to the extraordinary friends I've made during my stay here.
For the past couple of months, I've been working two jobs - one during the week and one during the weekend. The one during the weekend is a twelve hour shift that starts in the afternoon, which means I can't fight at night on Fridays, and I usually sleep-in like a warrior Saturdays and Sundays.
So I was an unhappy panda, until I saw that commercial...
By the Gods, I am genius.
If you're one of those people that doesn't GET IT, this is a mid-week meet&play for those of us that aren't available for FNF or Weekend Warriors, but don't want to be like "Hey guys, I'm playing this thing. Please play with me, y'know whenever. I mean, you don't have to, if you don't wa... No? Okay..."
Now you can be all like, "Yo, Dawg, you missed it. We made brain porn, on the real. Shit was cray. Don't worry tho, we do dis erry wed-nes-day. Hashtag cumgitsum."
So for the past couple weeks, I've been playing Monaco on the 360 in the afternoon and at night. I'll be continuing to do that. I'm also up for SF3: 3S because fitans and it was on sale last week.
Same deal as the other meet-ups, you can say what you'll be playing on Wednesday, on what, at what time, with your gamer id, either in THE FORUMS or here in the comments like this:
