I am Ocho, why Ocho? Because I forgot how to say "Eight" in Spanish class during a test and wrote "Hatchi" instead. I swore to myself I would never be that stupid again. I've been playing games since I got a Game Boy Colour for my 5th birthday (Yes, I'm way too young.) along with Link's Awakening DX and Pokemon: Blue. In 2000 I was given a modchipped PlayStation (not that I really knew what that meant at the time) along with way too many pirated games (again, no idea what that meant at the time). I've been hopelessly addicted to gaming ever since.

I don't actually own that many systems, but I do have the advantage of having rich friends who own everything. What I do actually own is:
-PS1 (not the modchipped one, that was sold along with all of the pirated games to my cousin)
-"Strawberry" (read: Pink) Game Boy Colour
-Indigo Game Boy Advance (left arrow on D-Pad stuck down from too many platformers)
-DS (Original, top screen broken beyond repair)
-Silver Gamecube
-White DS Lite
-Xbox 360

I also have some sort of masochistic need to find out about gaming from before I was able to comprehend video games, and love playing older games. Specifically, SNES and Dreamcast games are amazing to me, and I wish I could play the on the native systems more often.

Fun Facts:
-I'm Canadian, so I use a lot of 'u's to words that do not necessarily need them.
-I'm Israeli as well, so I have a weird accent.
-I'm teaching myself Japanese, and no one seems to believe that I actually know some.
-I consider myself to be a terrible person.
-I have twitter, because I'm a self absorbed tool. Follow me if you wish to aide me in my self absorbed-ness.
-I draw a lot, not much of it is very good, but sometimes I draw something I like, then it goes here. again, mainly because I'm a self absorbed tool.
-I really need to get a PS2
-I like anime.
-I would consider myself a pervert.
-I acknowledge that these facts aren't all that "Fun".

Hey Ocho, 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


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?
