My name is Alex. I'm 15 and I hide in my dark corner of the internet writing a so-called "blog" here on Destructoid. I think far too critically of myself which has reflected on my personality, as I'm cyncical and highly critical of...well a lot of stuff.
Anyway, games. It was all about the GameBoy Advance when I was young, and have grown up on an unhealthly diet of portable gaming (GBA,DS,PSP), a recent introduction of console gaming , lots of fictional media, and yummy food.
I'm lazy and very day-dreamy, non-committal and kind of temperamental. Plus I get distracted easily...I'm really painting a rosy picture here aren't I? Still, if you stick around, (I'm hoping) you may find something of quality here, and who knows, I don't think I'm THAT bad, right...right?
So yeah, vidjo games.

Also, I have twitter now, even though I now feel like a complete sell out. Follow me and see how uninteresting I can be.
LOOK AT ME I WENT TO COMIC CON BLOO BLOO BLOO FUCK OFF. But anyway, I took Phil to London MCM (Comic Con for you non-UK folks basically)and so we went on our first adventure together, and here it is! Just a fore warning though, it could have been a lot better, I just couldn't be fucked at some points, because I was too busy enjoying myself. Sorreh Phil :(
We got to the station so early that it was still locked up. Walking around my town center with a character from Harvey Birdman at 4:30AM with no one around was pretty serene. It was pretty bizarre in context now I think about it.
LOOK AT ME AND PHIL RIDING A TRAIN. LOOK AT HOW LONDON WE ARE
6:00AM and I'm finally here. What happened next was three hours of waiting sitting next to characters such as:
-The dullest 'Last Of Us' Promoter I've ever heard. Scratch that, one of the dullest people I've ever heard.
-A cross-player who I was unsure of what gender they were until they spoke, who was sullen and sad, despite being at MCM.
-A girl dressed as Rukia from Bleach, who was lovely.
-A group of 14 year old boys who were so nerdy it hurt. But they seemed nice enough.
LOOK PHIL NEMESIS HAS GRABBED YOU. SEE YOU LATER, YOU CAN FUCK RIGHT OFF IF YOU THINK I'M RESCUING YOU FROM NEMESIS.
Okay, I rescued you from Nemesis.
Look at this yellow...thing. Look Phil, I got you a picture with a thing...I think it was called Dave.
Here is Phil pictured with white people fighting, dressed as more famous white people. But one has a robe, and the other has orange trousers so its all good.
Here is Phil with ponies, because I read once that Phil enjoyed fucking ponies. Take that as you will I guess.
We even got to meet Mark Meer! MARK FRIGGIN MEER! I CAN'T EXPLAIN HOW AWESOME HE WAS AND HE'S JUST FUCKING AMAZING ARRRGGGGHHHHH-
One more note, Mark also wins the badge for being the only guy there who knew what Phil's avatar was! Anyone want to explain what the hell Harvey Birdman is, because it sounds fantastic :D
And there you go! Phil and I went to our first expo together! We played some great games, most notably Tekken Card Tournament, Rayman Legends, Deadpool, Remember Me, Project X Zone and the re-make of the classic arcade game Space Harrier 3D. Also, Dynasty Warriors 8 was like every Dynasty warrior ever. Tales of Xillia was nice, and so was Grid 2. Some of the games though were pretty average. Deadpool wasn't particularly fantastic, and I wasn't too fond of Remember Me, but it still looked pretty early so it deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Four best games there:
-Lost Planet 3 - Had an amazing "The Thing" vibe to it
-Space Harrier 3D - Eshop 3DS game coming out, fantastic fun
-Tekken Card Tournament - Sweet free app that's highly addictive, has a soon to come real life card element to it
-Rayman Legends - If you liked Origins or Jungle Run, or love Rayman in general, you're going to love this
And that's it guys! I bought some fantastic comics, played some great games, and met a lot of fantastic people. Till next time guys!
