My name doesn't matter, what does however is the fact that I love bananas, bongos, bohemian apparel and other assorted things that begin with the letter B. I came to Destructoid to seek fortune writing literature that rivals classics such as the 1851 novel by Herman Melville, Moby Dick. I don't give a damn whether or not you think my work rattles along at classic standards or not, they are all works of art, as much an art as interactive video entertainment games.
I'm not really that new to Destructoid, but I thought it'd be best If I introduced myself here in the Cblogs, although I have on the forums. I'm sorry this is so late. I should have written something like this a long time ago. Procrastination: one alluring seductress .
Well, back around 2007 I lurked good ol' Dtoid every now and then for news. I eventually joined in 2008 as Alpha 87655320875. I eventually dropped the account because of the long ass screen name, and now I'm here as Zulu. I joined because this site has character. Joystiq, Kotaku, and all of those other gaming blogs are all fine and dandy. They all lack one thing though, eyebrows. If I'm going to read something, I want it to be entertaining. Dtoid does this, and with panache. Video game news is often taken a little too seriously. It's good to see a site with some gahonas to take a more down to earth bullshit free approach.
As far as gaming goes, I got into it all with my father's Atari 2600. I believe pong was my first game, though my memories are still a little bit too fuzzy on the subject to recall if I am correct or not. The 2600 was great, but the thing that really got me hooked came around the Christmas of 1988. I received an NES. I played that damn system day and night. I rented games on the weekend, borrowed some from friends, and enjoyed every moment I had with it. I've been vidya gaming since I was a wee tyke. Peein my pants and shootin the core. Those were some hardcore days.
Off the top of my head my favorite games of all time and at the moment are Rock Band 2, Link's Awakening, Barkley: Shut Up 'n Jam Gaiden, Mega Man 2, GTA IV, Ikaruga, Mario bros 1, 2, and 3, and Persona 3.
I like to write about video games I love. I look at most of my write ups as embarrassing past love letters (some with nudes). Each game, character, or mechanic I write about has had an impact on me in some form or another. I write to return the favor, and to share. Video games are a fun. Anything that keeps that spirit is A-OK in my book.
I'm glad to be a part of this site. It has been a great place to reside my browser for the last million months. I hope to continue on, and get to know this place better. Since I've joined, I have had one hell of a time.
