YO WHATS UP!?!?

Hey people of Destructoid and ever where else. Name's draycott but everyone calls me Jack. As ya can tell I game. Not much. But enough to satisfy the title of gamer.

Do I know more then the average triple A title buyer? Yes. Do I know more then some of the members of the Dtoid community? Probably not.

I tend to hang out on Steam a lot when I'm gaming. TF2 tends to be the game I always attract to, so if ya need a sentry down I'll sap it for ya.

My favourite game? By far is Grandia 1 for the Playstation 1. God damn that game was awesome. Heaven and Earth CUT! HOLY CRAP that game was awesome.

Where can you find me most of the time when on Dtoid? I tend to comment randomly on front page posts made by the editors. I OCCASIONALLY attend the SNS, FNF360, FNFSteam and the forums.

My primary goal is to get more involved into the community. So hit me up if you want me to speak up about something or frag some noobs.

I suppose that's it for the gaming side. Personal side?

Well, I'm in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Yes. North. Cold. Moose. Maple Syrup. Hockey. Beer. Health Care.

Yes.

I'm in college right now studying Power Motive Technologies which is a fancy way of saying, I am studying how to fix cars. I also have a Diploma in Police Foundations. My aspiration is to join the police force of Toronto. I want to join Interpol but, that's HUGE and I'm pocket size by comparison to that dream.

Writing is my passion and gaming is my hobby. So this community of Destructoid and it's "video game journalist" is a perfect mix for me to hang out.

Also, I'm brown. Yeah, brown. More specifically, Tamil. Yep, brown. Obviously being in Toronto, I'm apart of the diaspora. I don't want to fill this about section about my people so I'll end it there. There's enough reading in those 2 Wiki posts alone.

What music I listen to? EVERYTHING except slow country. And even slow country I got a soft heart for.

LIST!
Eurobeat/J-pop
MC Frontalot
Techno
Club Music
Drum and Bass
Classical (From Braid for example)
Hip Hop
Dance hall/Reggae Surprise.
Jazz Awesome chill albums.
Trance
Experimental, Instrumental, Classical I can't even give a proper description.
Electro Pop
Newer Metal
Older Metal

I suppose I've written enough for now.

God speed...

Hey draycott, 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?
