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!
