I am ‘new’ here, but have been reading Deetoid for about a year. I join to read, comment, *occasionally* post in the forums, and to have fun. I love this website. Contests would be nice to win too.
-Recent graduate from a double honours BA in History of science and technology and History. School again in future, once I have a plan.
-Now working as a bicycle mechanic, because bikes are fun. Repairing and building them was a good idea, but nowhere near as fun as riding cross country or road.
-Planning on heading over to Korea with the g/f in about 2 months to learn how to teach, earn some cash, and gain some XP. Hopefully I will up my language, international adaptation, and my ruthless young Asian conformist zombie slaying SP.
-I like coffee, reading sci fi/fantasy, and frisbees, and flying kites. I wish money wasn't the core feature of my existence, but by virtue of the culture we live in, I have no choice.
I loves me the video games. Not all, but many, and very specific types. Here are some of my all time faves by platform, organized in a non-organized sort of way. many are retros, many are not. the list is long, apparently... Deal with it.
Quest for Glory one, three, and four
King's quest, generally speaking
day of the tentacle
Fallout II, never played I - HYPED about Bethesdas threequel (I said it, threequel, yeah. fna)
System shock 2
Diablo I and II
Everquest (i know)
WoW - unplayable, anymore, to me. Much too good. May as well smoke crack cocaine.
Ragnarok Online betas
All super solvers, like treasure mountain and shady vale, or whatever.
Sim City 2000
Giants Citizen Kabuto
Half life 1 and 2, CS:S, but not Episodes 1 or 2
Incredible Machine, The
Super Mario World
LoZ Link to the past
Ecco the Dolphin
Secret of Mana
Donkey Kong Country
Goldeneye, of course
Ocarina of Time
Diddy Kong Racing - one of the few racing games to capture my attention
Star wars shadows of the Empire
*note* My memory isn’t perfect. If one or two of these games are in the wrong platform category, please crucify me. *end note*
ninja gaiden black
Soul Calibur 2 - best fighter I've yet played
prince of persia
Mass Effect (I bought it with high expectations, and it DELIVERED)
Anyways, I could go on and on. Games are fun. Right now I'm trying to figure out what to play next. My brother just sent me Assassins creed in the mail, and I've yet to receive it. Viva Pinata is almost done for me, because I've almost got the Roario as a resident. COD4 is no longer a reliable option, as fun as it is, because I’ve disconnected from XBLA in preparation for my round-the-world move. I was thinking of ordering up Ninja gaiden black online before my subscription runs out. Also, Bully scholarship edition for the 360 looks BOMB.
