About
Hi, I'm Simon. I'm a 15 years old and I live in NZ. I have been gaming since I was very young with SNES and N64. I used to be only a Nintendo fan, but I eventually learned all the systems were awesome (I still love Nintendo the most though, Metroid is my favourite series ever)). I've also recently got more into retro games, partly inspired by RetroForceGo (best podcast ever!). As of now, I own a DS, a Wii, an SNES, an N64, a Gamecube, an Xbox, numerous Gameboys, and an adequate gaming PC. I plan on getting a backwards compatible PS3 eventually to catch up on all the games I missed and for upcoming releases. I'd like a 360 as well but I don't think I could really justify it. I can play my friends though anytime, system link ftw!















My Favourite Games:

NES: Metroid
SNES: Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, Super Metroid, Zelda ALttP, Super Mario World
N64: Zelda OoT, Zelda Majora's Mask, Banjo Kazooie, Banjo Tooie, Goldeneye
GC: Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, Zelda WW, Beyond Good and Evil, Super Smash Bros Melee
Wii: Super Mario Galaxy, Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, Zelda TP, Super Smash Bros Brawl
GB/GBA: Zelda LA, Metroid Zero Mission, Metroid Fusion, Zelda OoA, Zelda OoS, Advance Wars
DS: Phoenix Wright, Advance Wars: DS, Elite Beat Agents
PC: Age of Empires 2, Diablo 2, Cave Story, The Orange Box
Xbox: Halo, Far Cry Instincts
Xbox 360: Gears of War

Of course, I could list tons more amazing games, but those are my absolute favourites!

Resident Evil 5 (PS3)
Beyond Good and Evil 2 (PS3 probably)

Hey Sim00, 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?
