About
Name: Gregory Hall
Age: 18
Gender: Male
Nationality: English
Picture: (Coming Soon)

A proper British lad, I'm that annoying guy who always manages to jam his way out death in games without quite deserving it. I'm a moderate player who has started to choose harder game difficulties from the outset. I proudly boast that I've managed to get to the fifth level of Contra 3 (hard difficulty) and am currently challenging the rockness of Ghosts & Goblins. There isn't any particular genre of games that I stick to but I prefer original, artsy and involving games. I love comedy but despite my sense of humour I suck at trying to be funny. Music is my lifeblood, I can always be found with my Ipod playing the loudest heaviest music I can find. I consider myself an okay writer but that comes purely from the fact that I avoid both 1337 5P33K and Txt Spkk. Although to be honest, thatís probably just because I'm not hardcore enough to understand it. Out of all of the gaming stereotypes I guess I'm a cross between a Japanophile and a Collector. I love Japanese culture and hope to go there soon. I own 200 plus titles across multiple systems and love all of them. My favourite console is the original PS1, my favourite game changes with my mood but its usually either an Onimusha or a Final Fantasy. (More Soon)

Hey RedNEXUS, welcome to our Community Blogs!

Unlike a regular blog, where you're out alone in the web wilderness, destructoid will publish your story instantly to a directory shared by our readers. Great blogs are voted up, and you'll soon earn followers. "Failblogs", the opposite of awesomeness, we can do without. As such, we want to help you make the best first impression:

Checklist for Not Sucking:

1) Upload an avatar CHECK!

2) Write a brief bio

CHECK!

3) Publish your first blog (SCARY!)

It's not so scary. However, be mindful of a few things. A good blog is intended to be a complete article, have entertainment value of some kind, and formatted nicely. If you toss a blog up that looks like a quickly thrown-together email with no photos or care you'll never earn readers, and unlikely ever get your blog promoted to our home page.

Here's an example of a FAILBLOG:
Oh hey I'm new here wuz up I've been reading the site for 99 years and this is my first blog! I like tacos! Nice to meet everyone!!! -Niero
Silly rabbit, blogs are not forums! While enthusiasm is greatly appreciated, that's hardly a valid blog post or even a complete paragraph. Even if your intentions are in the right place, this is what we call a "fail blog". Don't be that guy.

If that's all you want to say, it's better suited for fast-paced conversation in our home page comments or even our forums. Blogs are complete thoughts. They should be able to stand alone. When you're ready to talk about an interesting topic, in 1-2 paragraphs and ask readers to respond to your thoughts then you're ready to blog. Got it?

Don't spam the blogs.

One last thing -- be mindful that this is a 'shared' space, so don't push a bunch of blogs together one after the other. After you publish, try commenting and following other bloggers before you blog again to allow people to check your story out, and post new stories as well.

If you are copying and pasting from another blog, please take some time to personalize it for this community. Nobody likes copy-pasta, it's spammy.

Here's a few more blogging tips from the boss of us. Ready to go?
