Ed (Sahdow Heart) has been lurking around destructoid for a few years now when his other favorite gaming communities went away (1up for example). Now I am hoping to contribute to this lovely community, where "gamey" games are still appreciated.
I have been gaming since I was a *wii* lad, ahem, and I am now approaching 30 and I have found that as I have gotten older I am appreciating the golden era I grew up in for gaming, that being the early 90's through the very early 2000's.
While I still enjoy some of the stuff that comes out today, I find my backlog is ever expanding, and I am really enjoying rediscovering and newly discovering all the games of yesteryear and how they inform (or don't) inform what we see today.
I tend to be fairly opinionated about my love for gaming and my other passions, anime, and the paranormal! I have built up and run some smaller online communities centered around webcomics, anime, and gaming, and am proud to have done so, But I find myself coming here enough that I feel like contributing here as well :).
I hope you guys can embrace me into your fold, and I look forward to contributing many blog posts. And may the ever-loving robotic deity of destructoid shine his praise upon me in thy mercy.
