About
Formerly know as PhilKenSebben. He is now 33 and old. He probably hates you as well (He's lying about that). He used to run The Low(er) Tier, he podcasted (and is now on Fapcast, led by StriderHoang) and got into development. He says he enjoys nothing, but his known interests (besides games) are: reading, hiking, playing with his kids, yelling at old(er) people, collecting various virus samples, stalking Smurfee, thinking about working out, itching his bare butthole and seeing how long he can go, without smelling my finger and Batman. He loves old school cars (Chevy), football (Packers & Niners) and of course: Vidya Gamze!

His favorite games as a wee lass were: SMB3, Gunstar Heroes, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, Doom/Quake, Excitebike, Anything from Sierra/Lucasarts and MK. Now days He is a filthy game slut. Keen on TBS and Roguelikes though. The replayability makes his dick hard. He's always down to game with anyone, so feel free to hit him up on whatever you see I'm on. He's been on Dtoid quite awhile now (almost 7 years) and have been involved in numerous off the radar things like contests, recaps, Community Playdate Managing and spreading his AIDS. You can find him lurking mainly in the forums now days, but he checks for spam and spreads his love here and there in cblogs and the fp. He loves you sick bastards. In a sexy non-sexual way.



He is also on that thar Tweetarr @MikeMcPhil. Feel free to hit him up, He is always down to chat or lend an ear to someone in need.

Since I received so few (usable) responses to the first time I posted this (don't worry folks, I have those few saved), I thought with all the new fish we have now, I'd post it again. I would really like to do this Community Chat, as it's a matter close to my heart. I may look like a white boi, but I'm actually (mostly) Mexican and Iranian. I've dealt with a lot of bullshit due to that in my life and so have a lot of my non-white friends. A lot of us feel let down by the lack (or stereotyping) of representation in the video game world. It's almost as if the industry only caters to suburban white kids and Japanese folks. So here we go again. I'll leave the original post below this (because I'm lazy), follow it's instructions and let's knock this one out of the park and get it front-paged.



Hello folks. Times for another Community Chat. This time the subject is: Look at the damn title, lazy ass. So what topics would you like to see discussed? What's your take on how different races are handled in gaming? How would you like to see them handled differently? Drop a comment below or a PM to me. I will compile all feedback and put together a discussion blog soon. If you want to remain anonymous PM me with your idea and a message stating that. These issues are important to a lot of us and I'd like to see them discussed and I hope I'm not alone.
