About
Salutations, Destructoid! Ace of knaves, at your service. I've been a member of this place since around June of 2008, and I never cease loving all the Dtoid community has to offer.

If you'd like to know the mildly interesting tale of my gaming history, well, when I was a young boy I wasn't that focused on video games. I dabbled in PC games and handhelds, like most kids do, but I was too intimidated to plunge all the way in. As far as I could tell I didn't have much of a knack for gaming, and I was perfectly content to watch others play while remaining strictly an observer. Besides, I was perfectly happy with books, TV, and movies, so I figured really, what was I missing? I found out one magical day when I went over to the house of an older neighbor. He wanted to play Super Smash Brothers, and while I preferred to just watch him from the couch he insisted that I join in. Over the next few hours I discovered an amazing truth: video games are really fun. From that day forward gaming became a much bigger part of my life, and over the years I absorbed the culture and the history while trying to play as much as I could.

As for my tastes, Sports games are pretty much the only genre I'll write off completely, but besides that I'm not too fond of racing games that adhere to realism and there are very few RPGs I like that don't have Mario in them. Otherwise I'm pretty much willing to give anything a chance, as long as it's good and, unless it's a fighting game, I prefer more of a focus on single player. In this generation I own a DS, a Wii, and a PS3, and I love them very much.

When it comes to this place, well, after being linked to Destructoid a few times I realized how great this site was, then after a few months of lurking realized how great I could be by joining the community, so here I am. I'm mostly found commenting on the front page and the cblogs, and I'll do a blog of my own here and there, but probably not as often as I should. From February to August of '09 I was involuntary absent from the site, and I hope nothing like that happens again. This is one of the best communities out there, gaming or otherwise, and if you're reading this you're already awesome.

Is this happening? Am I here? Yes, I am! Oh the glory! Sorry for the confusion Destructoid, but oh God I've missed you so very much. Way back in February of this year my home internet inexplicably prevented me from accessing this glorious website, leaving me unable to interact with one of the greatest communities the internet has ever known, relegating my Dtoid exposure to podcasts and cached images of articles. It's been a sad six months.

But now I'm back! Just as inexplicably, I can now access this site normally and resume...yeah, okay, snide comments and relatively minimal community involvement. But that's all I want, and damn it feels good to look at links on this site and know I'm free to access them at my leisure. Yeah, sad six months.

And I knew this place looked different, but damn, so sleek. This will take a bit of acclimating. So, if you by any chance remember me from days of old, great to see you again, and if you've joined up since February, it's my pleasure to meet you. Now if you'll excuse me, I have an absurd amount of catching up to do.



Also, if you'd like to direct me towards anything spectacularly amazing I've missed, such as anything rivaling a site event as phenomenal as the fallout of the above image, it would be greatly appreciated.
