About
Um, I play video games. I also wear clothing, and on occasion eat and/or drink. I currently have a bed to sleep in, though couches have proved perfectly satisfactory for that need in the past. I'm sure there are facets of my personality that I'm missing here, but I'm not really sure what needs to be advertised about me, and I'm not so vain as to declare myself the awesome-poop at the vidja games, given that I kinda suck at them in any situation I have to play against other people and don't have ready access to a "restart level" button until I figure out how the area works. I play games primarily on the PS3, which is a statement of fact and not an undying allegiance, since the whole system wars thing is just an obnoxious waste of time. If I had the cash I'd own every system. Okay, that's a lie, cus I've already preordered the collector's edition of Skyrim, Arkham City, and AssCreedRev which would equal a 3DS if that system weren't due for a redesign by the time I get done with all the games coming out this winter/spring, and kickass statuettes are way better than equipment that I'd kick myself for owning early. So, yeah, games, huh? Cool stuff.

Hey Sonintega, 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?
