About
Umm ok. I'm actually not new to destructoid. Have been browsing for about a year. I got into gaming when I saw my uncles girlfriends kid playin Mario kart double dash. It amazed me. And the first thing I asked for on Christmas was a gamecube. Metroid prime was quite confusing to say the least. The wii was my next conquest. But the few good titles include metroid prime 3, brawl, galaxy, and mario kart wii. I then got a ps2. A bad decision. Considering that within about 3 months or so I got my primary system. The playstation 3. My first game, HAWX. Got it about a few months before the ps3 came around. An excellent game.(not a flight sim.) I was very satisfied with the playstation for 3 or 4 years until 3 weeks ago, then the original next gen system made it to my homely home. The XBox 360. Although I wasn't as well prepared as I was with the ps3. Within a few days, my 2nd favorite fps made it to my 360. Halo 3. Starting a late transition to the 360. On the handhelds, my first device was the gameboy advance, don't remember much about it other than spiderman 3 was entertaining. The ds I think was next. With nintendogs being interesting enough. And my preferred handheld. The psp. Was next. Socom an dissidia being almost Xbox 1 like. And finally. The thing Im using to type this damned bio up. An apple iPod touch. Among the most versatile of gizmos. I have had one before this one. The first one busting up when the cheap aftermarket charger broke and loaged it it in the charger, rendering it useless. My current favorite game of all time is fallout 3. Seriously! Lasts months, looks decent enough, plays well and has an excellent atmosphere. I'm still regularly playing the game. Now you know what I was playing since I was 7. I can stop typing since my fingers are getting sore from holding the iPod by the charger. UPDATE: my plans to go to 360 have been halted by the alien feel of the xbox. PS3 will still be my go to console. this part was typed on a shitty pc.

Hey Vernon682, 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?
