Quickblog: Last chance at Fallout swag!

No, not my last Fallout puppet. I'm saving that. It may be hard to play the game next week with it wrapped around my thumbs, but screw it. I'm gonna try. Bethesda is celebrating the end of the Penny Arcade comic run by gi...

 





CONTEST: Win a PAX Fallout puppet!

I'm sure it's clear to even the most jaded Destructoid reader that PAX is widely considered to be pretty much the best thing ever. I've been meaning to write a bit about my experience at the show. Unfortunately for my pla...

 


Reminder: Free Pokémon at PAX!

I'll be busy most of tomorrow packing and doing last minute trip preparations. Before I leave though, I wanted to make sure and remind those people who are planning on attending the Penny Arcade Expo to bring their DS's (...

 


PAX, Pokémon, and you!

It's no secret to regular readers of this blog that I am a big fan of both Pokémon and the PAX show. I was wracking my brain trying to figure out how to combine my two passions and also show the community a little love. ...

 


Thank you, Dyson and Codemasters!

Yesterday I received the copy of Overlord: Raising Hell I won in the contest back in July. It was the lone bright spot in an otherwise completely brutal day. I'd just like to thank both the staff at the site for holding s...

 


PAX for beginners

I was talking on Steam's IM with the inimitable SWPM a couple of days ago about my experience at PAX last year. I really started to get on a roll, and with less than 50 days left until the doors open, I thought others who ha...

 



RFGO! supplemental: Castlevania YTMNDs

In a previous installment I mentioned that I might do this again, so I figure that's fair warning. Here then are several YTMNDs related to tonight's RetroforceGO! topic, the Castlevania series. I'm aware that Dracula's ...

 


About Qalamarione of us since 5:34 AM on 02.16.2007





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.

E-mail: Qalamari {at} gmail {dot} com. Infrequently checked, you're better off sending me a PM on the site.

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