About Me

Hey all, real name's Tom, but I usually travel under the handle Sarin (as in the chemical). I'm a 19 yo Uni student studying science at Sydney Uni. As some of you may have figured out I live in Australia but I still try to get on the destructoid TF2 sever despite my 200+ pings.

Trivia Time
Some of my favourite games are:
Grim Fandango
Secret of Monkey Island I&II
Psychonauts
Day of the Tentacle
(Add any Tim Schaefer Game Here)
Fallout 1&2
Max Payne 1&2
TF2
Vampire: Bloodlines
Arcanum
Planescape: Torment
Hitman: Blood Money
This is already too long so I'll stop

Currently playing:
TF2
BrB;u Mod Nights
Hitman: Blood Money
Persona 3

Random:
-I get irrationally distressed when game characters have names like Sarin. Saren(Mass Effect), Sareth(Dark Messiah), Saris(Horizons), Sarun(Viralhunter's story), there are others
-GTA was damn good but has little replay value after the second play through :(
-If you play PC games come to BrB;u. It rocks!
-Having no friends is laym

It is quite possible that I am the one of the only people in the world who really wants GTA IV, has no restrictions on buying a copy, has a console for it, has plenty of disposable income for it, time to play it, but still doesn't have a copy. And it's all playasia's fault.

It's important to realise that I'm in Australia. You've probably heard about the censorship and like a sane person, not really cared. I, however, am clearly not a sane person because I thought it would be a good idea to cancel my pre-order and import a copy from playasia. It seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean, it would be cheaper, it would be uncensored and it would arrive maybe a day later, after all, their website said that they'd be getting their copy in April, why wouldn't I do it?

Because Playasia are cunts that's why!





So what's happening now is my copy of GTA IV will arrive this tuesday afternoon. More than a week after its initial release, and it will barely be any different to a launch copy.

I have bought from playasia before and had no problems but this has severely damaged their reputation for me. I realise that they couldn't help it, but they should not have advertised that they were getting copies in April if they weren't getting them until May 2. It's only a few days but it turns into a week because they won't transport it on a weekend.

Well, anyway I had a reasonably free weekend this week cause I don't have much Uni work this week so it sucks I didn't get to play, but I'm not that pissed because I got to finish my game of Shadow of the Colossus, and I would like to add that I am very happy that I did, because it was a really fun game and had one of the best videogame endings I've seen.



Best Colossus


Also, Wander and Agro make Kratos look like a little bitch.


Yeah I know that was a pointless blog, but God's been on my ass for a while to do one. At least there's a picture.
