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.
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.
But I cannot for the life of me find any information about the game collection tab and the wishlist/trade tab that are blacked out above everyone's c-blog. I've only been a part of the community for a few months, but it seems like these tabs, which I'd say would greatly enhance one's blog in terms of personality and authenticity, have been in a void long before I ever arrived. Will they be implemented at some point? My ADD wants to know because listing games in the right-sided column isn't as much fun as people make it seem. Actually, it's no fun at all.
C'mon, Dtoid. Give us something to play with. It's the holidays!
