Hello, Dtoid, it's been awhile, haha.
I've been spending the past month or so upgrading and re-outfitting my Airsoft armory, so I haven't had a lot of time or money to spend on video games. Today's economy seriously doesn't...
Ever since my first visit to an arcade, I've been a pretty big fan of light gun rail shooters, including Confidential Mission, the Jurassic Park games at places like Frankie's Fun Park, and most of the House of the Dead title...
The majority of my gaming time is spent with console games, but since I don't actually want to pay sixty bucks for the news games I want to try, and especially with some of the RPG-style games that are in the works and have b...
All right, well, I think I'll stick to safer topics from now on, haha. I apologize for sucking, Dtoid--I was attempting to test the waters and got eaten by the sharks.
One of the most memorable shooters I had the fortune ...
In preparation for the release of Crackdown 2 early next month, I've been playing the original for the past couple of days. It's an interesting game--I certainly like the upgradeable character, the superhero theme, and the...
Well, folks, I returned Operation: Flashpoint, got my money back (thank you, GameStop, for your 7-day policy for used games), and then spent it on a game which I should have bought as soon as it came out..
Seriously, why h...
Well, I went out and bought Operation: Flashpoint, Dragon Rising the other day, and so far, I haven't quite made it past the halfway point in the second campaign mission. I was impressed by the realism that the game convey...
What can I say? I'm not a great artist, but this was something I felt inspired to draw, especially after playing through the CoD:MW2 campaign. Now, I don't know how late I am to the party, but here goes:
I'll admit, I ha...
Well, I'm new to Destructoid, so I figure I'll go ahead and introduce myself in my first blog post. I generally go by Bennett, though you're welcome to call me Red Beret, RB, Arbee (which, incidentally, was my first choice f...
About Red Beret One of us since 3:39 AM on 06.15.2010
Q: What do you call yourself? A: Bennett, mostly. I do go by the alias Red Beret, though, and any variation thereof.
Q: What are your qualifications? A: I don't have any.
Q: Does that stop you? A: Of course not.
Q: So, why "Hit or Miss?" A: Because the general response to a blog post could go either way, and I'm okay with that. I feel that it reflects the fact that this is a place for people to share their opinions... good or bad.
Q: I see. Tell us more about yourself. A: Well, I consider myself a casual gamer. I mostly play through games for the story rather than the challenge, and I very rarely play games online, as I don't have great Internet service. I play on a wide enough genre spectrum to stay in the loop with most things, but generally I pass on anything I don't take an interest in... no point in diversifying my portfolio if I'm not gonna have fun with it, eh?
Currently, I'm in possession of a Nintendo Wii and an Xbox 360. The Wii has not been turned on in the past month, and I'm pretty sure it only exists as a paperweight or a conversation piece--I'm not sure which. Maybe both. Actually, it's kind of useless as a paperweight, because Nintendo decided to devise this little... stand thing, so you can't really pick it up in that convenient way most paperweights can be picked up. So I guess it's a conversation piece. People can ask me, "Oh, you have a Wii?" and I can say "Oh, right, that's what that is."
I suppose I can count my computer, too, but I don't, since I can't really play games on it (its loss).
When I'm not gaming, I do "normal" things like eat and sleep, and when I'm not doing any of those, I rock the AirSoft scene (6mm Mercenary FTW) and post my opinions in the public domain, where unfortunates such as yourselves may read them, haha!
