Early 20s
I love RPGs, Adventure games, Platformers, RTS- ah screw it, I enjoy pretty much most genres out there, so long as the games themselves are good.

Besides games, I love Tarentino movies, and I try to keep up with the fantasy genre when I read books (Though lately A song of Ice and Fire has pretty much taken over my life).

I play games on every major platform , except the 360 since mine died a couple years back.

Wii, WiiU, 3DS: PM me for info, I can't recall ever playing online with a nintendo console, so I would have to check out what my profile says.

So, as the title indicates (and some of you may have read from comments I posted a couple of weeks back, I recently lost my job. I'll admit, it was a shock at first. At 23, this was the first time I'd ever been laid off. Good news: I found something else. I've been through the interviews and background checks and I have a new job. I found out last Friday, and it's been quite a relief. (I'd also like to take a minute to thank everyone in the Dtoid Community for your words of support, they really helped, not to mention that over the last year or so, this place has really come to be my home away from home. I love you guys (and girls, I'm not sexist ;) ), your passion for games, silly GIFs and easy dick jokes.)

But here's the thing: I only start on the 24th. That's like, almost 2 weeks away. And I'm going to go stir crazy with all of that free time I have now that the job hunt is over. And before someone tells me to step outside and enjoy some fresh air, I'm in Canada, it's winter and I'd prefer not to freeze my nuts off, thank you very much. So here's the plan for the next few weeks: I'm going to play a shitload of games.

#1: Backlog

I have way too many games I've picked up over the years from PS+,  Steam sales and just plain old bargain bins.

And this is just A through  part of D. Of Steam. Not GOG or Origin. And I've finished three of these games. FML.

2 Weeks?!? I need 2 years!

#2: Loadout.

I love you, Harry!

Now, barely a week ago, I had no clue this game even existed. Then one MrAndyDixon mentioned it in the comments for last week's FNF. I have rediscovered gaming bliss. And it's fully free to play! I've already put in about 6 hours since last Friday, and I expect to put in quite few more in the coming weeks. So if you're also playing, give me a shout at renaudb90. We'll have a jolly good old time. Also, I may or may not get the giant floppy dick option once the cash flows in. But your eyes are safe for a while. Being pantless apparently costs $40 now. Thanks Obama!

#3: Bravely Default.

It's like I'm 14 all over again and I'm playing Final Fantasy. The good ones. Like IV, V, VI, VII and IX. But mostly V. Except they now have shitty voice acting, discreet but nonetheless worrying pay-to-win mobile tier bullshit and I haven't actually shut off my 3DS since last Friday because GODDAMMIT SQUARE WOULD IT HAVE KILLED YOU TO LET NORENDE BE REBUILT WHEN THE GAME IS SHUT OFF WHY YOU GOTTA BE SUCH A DICK EVEN WHEN YOU MAKE AN OTHERWISEGOODGAMEIHATEYOUIHATEYOUHATEHATEHATE!!!...

... Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah. Bravely Default. It's alright. Gonna play me some more of that, I guess.

#4: Whatever else I feel like doing, I guess.

Seriously, I have no clue. I'm not used to having so much free time, and once my new job starts, I'll have next to none for a while. I'll be on Destructoid a bit more often. Maybe blog some more. I hear Payday 2 is coming to PS+, so that could be fun. If any can bear the thought of playing with a noob on DOTA2, my Steam ID is Renaudb90, as is my PSN (Not sure what it is on WiiU, not that I have any online games there until Kart comes out). Been playing a lot against bots, but I have yet to dare play a real match with a random group. If any of you have ideas, I'm open to suggestions, so sound off in the comments if you feel like throwing an impromptu  game of whatever or know of a cheap or free game to play.

In the meantime, I'll be shutting up and just playing games.
