Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Let Me Tell You About My $250 T-Shirts

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.

Yo, everyone. So this weekend during Pax East, I'll be helping out with some of the podcasting going on from the show for the community. In the meantime, you can listen to my own personal podcast.

Download here!

Or be a dear and subscribe on iTunes here!

This week's episode, our topic discussion time is used to talk about something that all gamers have memories of: staying up all night, in caffeine-induced hazes, and gaming. Here's just a few of the topics:



My personal anecdotes about staying up just trying out new fatalities I copies out of old GamePro magazines, hand-written on notebook paper, of course.



Luke ruminates on when he stayed awake for 24 consecutive hours playing FFVII before losing it all because he didn't have a memory card.



Chris at one point in time won 3rd place in the world at Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2, but it came at the price of his health...and sanity.



We also discuss just how we stayed awake during those late night...

I hope you guys enjoy.
