Site Update: Community Blogs patches *incoming*   |   Report a bug
All American from New York City.. I got into gaming initially with my very first Nintendo way back in 1989.. Been Hooked since..

The systems i game most on are my PS3 slim 120GB, And my Super Elite 250GB MW2 Xbox360 i had owned a Wii but it collected dust so i sold it..

Right now you can find me occupied with: PS3's MAG, Demon Souls, And White Knight Chronicles.. On Xbox360 its: FIFA 10, Mass Effect 1 and 2, Forza 3, Dead Space, Gears Of War 2, Borderlands, And many more..

Needless to say my backlog of games that need to be finished is extensive to the point where the wife is infuriated by my continued reserve and purchase of games monthly..

Coming up for me on both systems with in the next few weeks is: PS3 Heavy Rain, PS3 MLB 10, PS3 Finaly Fantasy 13.. XBOX360 Battlefield Bad Company 2..

So to round this out nicely.. I look forward to getting involved with the community and making new friends.. DESTRUCTOID IS THE SH*T!!

Hey Statik-Selekta, 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


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?
