The name's James and I'm 20. I reside in the beautiful Bay Area in California. I've been gaming for as long as I can remember. Being a 90's kid, I of course grew up playing the Sega Genesis and NES being accompanied by Sonic The Hedgehog and the old school Mario Bros. I had so many games for my NES up until my NES broke and my dad decided to give the games away since I was busy occupying my new SNES. From there I pretty much owned any system that Nintendo made and enjoyed my childhood as a natural born gamer.
I now own all three consoles and try to be open-minded when playing various video games. Expect to see me write about my experiences with video games on this here blog!
I'm under the impression that this is a Super Secret Club created by the almighty DESTRUCTOID himself to rid the world of Evil doers and bring justice to all things video games. I was told that if I was ready for the awesomeness that ensues in this Super Secret Club, then I should fill out an application and post it below along with a detailed description of myself. Well I am ready for the awesomeness this club has to offer. Hope I get in (Fingers Crossed ;P).
Super Secret Club Name: SteezyXL
Age: What ever 5+4-7+10*9-8*2-200+18 equals..
Ethnicity: Black & Brown
Sex: Hell yeah!! .. oh.. you mean.... I'm a guy..
Location: I think somewhere near the DtoidSF, but idk.. I don't go outside
Years gaming: For as long as I can remember.. which isn't saying much considering I don't remember what I ate for breakfast this morning.. hmm..
Stalked Dtoid for: About 4 years now.. I actually filled out an application a while back, but I think I got rejected..
Tell us about yourself:
Well.. I love video games. Always have growing up. I grew up in the 90's playing my Sega Genesis and NES. Sonic the Hedgehog and Mario were my heroes and I wanted to grow up and be just like them. But then I realized that I don't think I'd be very successful at spin dashing and just the fact that I'd look stupid in overalls.
Apparently plumbers look good in overalls.. pfft.. yeah right..
I enjoyed my childhood just like every aspiring gamer did, in front of the television with a controller in my hand not caring about a damn thing except about the video game that laid before me. Nintendo was my favorite growing up, so of course I had to own all of their consoles and games. Everything from the NES to the N64 and all of the iterations of the game boys were all mine! (Mwahaha!) I could go on and on about my favorite child hood memories playing games, but I've got an application to fill out. I'll share them later.
What can you bring to the club?:
Well I was told I am funny.. or did she say funny-looking?.. hmm I don't remember. Well, I like to voice my opinions on video games, so I could write some insightful things about video games such as reviews, commentary, thoughts on events or maybe just random things I come across on the interwebs that I'd love to share. I'm a very friendly person and I love meeting new people, especially people who share the same interests as me and aren't dicks. (We could be Super Secret Club Buddies!)
Oh yeah, if you ever need a place to hold secret meetings mom said I can invite you guys and she'll make some Totino's Pizza Rolls for us. Yum.
Dramatization: Not my actual mother
She also said she'll bake cookies for us. I'll just need a list of people who are allergic to almonds. I had a bad experience with my last club that I do NOT want to repeat. Long story short, I was given a restraining order and the boot, which is why I need a new club to join.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?:
I see myself high in the ranks of this Super Secret Club, considering I'll still be in it (Seriously guys, I'll need that list!). I also see myself fulfilling my dreams of owning my own video game studio/publisher. I've been playing video games for all my life and I want to one day be the person making them. Considering I'll have a Master's in Computer Science, having learned all the necessities of being a video game developer, and have the same type of determination that Ash Ketchum had in being the best Pokemon trainer ever, I think I should be fine (I hope..). It'll be a tough road ahead, but that'll be the fun of it. I'd also give this Super Secret Club first dibs on all of my games because I am so awesome like that.
Anything else you'd like to add?:
Honestly guys, I'm just here for a good time. I've never done a blog before, so it'll be both fun and frightening at the same time. I'm looking to meet some cool people, add their gamertags ((mine is in the sidebar) and hopefully sometime in the future your PSN names and Wii friend codes as well), and have a jolly Ole time. I've been around Destructoid long enough to know that the community is the foundation to this site and I'm just here to do my part and contribute.
All that precious room in the front could be space for me in that picture!
So now that you've gotten to know me, LET ME INTO YOUR CLUB!!
