About




Scary Womanizing Pig Mask was a good friend. Wherever you've gone, I hope you're in a better place.

Beyamor's avatar fathered mine's love child at PAX East. It's ok though, 'cuz he gave me a picture of a Kirby as child support. Cheap bastard...



I inspired a song. (Thanks, Alphadeus!)


I am an element of Destructoid. (Thanks, Corduroy Turtle!)

10 things that may help you to understand me better.

I used to be the Cblog Recapper for Mondays. It was a good run.



May want to stay out of the old stuff. I didn't know what I was doing when I started here.
Like most other D-toiders I am male, 15 to 30 something, introverted to the point of social ineptitude, and grew up obsessing over whatever videogames I came across-- somewhat to the chagrin of my parents. I have about 9-10 gigs (yes, GIGS) of hard drive space devoted to game music, original soundtracks and remixes alike (Much love for OCRemix ). I've logged many, many hours into World of Warcraft, though I cancelled my account and have been "clean" for a couple of years now. I am a moderately slavering Nintendo fan because-- let's be fair... they were easily the biggest influence in my formative years. Because of this, it is my belief that Smash Bros. Brawl was created specifically for me. The fact that the rest of you may enjoy it is merely coincidence.

I am something of a stickler for both grammar and punctuation, and the use of "LOL" and its truncated ilk sometimes causes me to cringe. Fairly warned be ye, says I.



I work and go to college part time, which is a strain on both my finances and my free time. As such, my gaming collection isn't as up-to-date as I'd like. Somehow, I have managed to obtain a Wii, PS3, and a 360. My favorite console, however, is still the original NES My brother and I bought ourselves 20-odd years ago. I'm almost never more than 50 feet from my DS. I just replaced my computer's innards, and have found that I have more PC games to catch up on than time to do it in. I manage to stay current on most games by visiting friends with other systems, and the ancient art of borrowing. And that's a nice thing about games... if you miss `em you can go back to them years later and they're just the same as they ever were.

I tend to be more of a lurker than a contributor, but if I see something I think is particularly humorous or worthy, I do enjoy sharing.

I love to see new Miis. If you add my Wii code, let me know! 5015-7633-5088-2932

I had Pokemon codes here once, but I don't think anybody cared.

Yeah, I used it before. I made it. I like it. I'm using it again.


Hey guys and gals.

I'm heading out of town this weekend but I wanted to let everyone know that signups are still open for the Pokemon tournament I'd like to run over the coming weeks. Why do I say "I'd like to run" rather than " I am running"? Well, that's where you come in.

As of right now I have less than 8 people who have signed up to participate. I'm not a math whiz but even I know that in a community with over 30,000 members, this is just barely on the shady side of 0.0%. Since a tournament is a large group of combatants systematically being reduced in number until only one remains, it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to hold one when the number of participants is as close to zero as it is.

I've seen a lot of posts mentioning a desire to enter, but I haven't gotten information from those people. Please, PLEASE send it in, I've tried to make it as easy as possible, and there are three ways to do so. You can E-mail it to me (Qalamari {at} Gmail {dot} com), or hit up my previous Cblog or the forum thread devoted to the subject.



I'll sweeten the deal a bit. If you sign up, I'll send you a set of the special Johto starters I bred up to give away at PAX last year. Signups will be closed at the end of this coming weekend (Feb 22). If at that time there are still less than 8 people signed up, I'll have to call it off. If you have any interest at all, please sign up... I'd hate to have to cancel the tournament for lack of interest.
