Why do I buy bad games?
This is a question I often find bouncing around my head from time to time. And considering that yesterday, on a whim, I went out to my local Gamestop and bought...wait for it...ready...Musashi: Samura...
Another weekend home visiting my folks is allowing me to continue with this little series of posts which I first started here. My mother had two new games in her collection: Left Brain/Right Brain 2 and Zenses Ocean. Of the t...
First, let's get the standard blah-blah-blahs out of the way: Yes, I suck. Yes, this post needs more cowbell. Yes, I have the Internet searching skills of a dead hamster. Yes, yes, yes. N00bs in the houze and all that.
While home for Thanksgiving weekend, I took the opportunity to peruse my mother's DS collection for something to play. We're pretty much opposites when it comes to our DS purchases; I'm of the Final Fantasy IV, Puzzle Quest, ...
As I mostly play videogames of the RPG ilk, I've come across my fair share of beastiaries. These are, for those not in the know, graphically done tomes, containing a showcase of monsters your hero and his/her team have defeat...
This is the result of choosing wrongly.
So, as I slowly inch my way towards saving up enough couch coins for an Xbox 360 I'm working through a big backlog of PS1 and PS2 games. Most of them are RPGs, and the one currently h...
Well, this is my introduction post. To be honest, I'm quite scared. I feel all this pressure to "not suck!" that I had to double-check a few times that I'm here at Destructoid and not the Something Awful forums or whathaveyou...

Name's Paul. New Jersey is my home, and autumn air is what I prefer to breathe.
I've been playing videogames ever since I unwrapped my very first console one Christmas, a Super Nintento Entertainment System, some many, many years ago. Since then, I've fallen in love with RPGs and JRPGs, platformers that feed my OCD, and watching other people play first-person shooters (I get dizzy if I try to play them myself). I like gaming, but I definitely don't love it as much as I used to. For that, let's blame the economy and/or dayjobs. Still, I do keep up on the new games and hope to eventually get a current-gen system (I'm thinking Xbox 360, mainly for Fable II and Oblivion).
Game Systems of Mine... Playstation 2
Playstation 1 (Tried to sell it at a yard sale for $5, but no one wanted it so I'm sure it's in a box somewhere in my parents' garage.)
Super Nintendo Entertainment System (More yellow than a lemon, but the blasted thing still works. Games I have for it that proves I'm not a complete tool when it comes to selling/trading in classics are Super Metroid, Zelda: A Link to the Past, Killer Instinct [it's just so...black!], Jurassic Park, Madden '97, and Mario Paint [but I can't play it as I don't have the mouse thinger].
Clearing Out the Backlog On... Final Fantasy 9
Top Five Albums I Can Listen to Over and Over... Weezer - The Blue Album
Cursive - The Ugly Organ
Paul Simon - Graceland
Ryan Adams - Heartbreaker
The Beatles - Rubber Soul
Hmm...must think of what else I can put here that would be of interest to people.
