For the most part, I'm an action gamer - I usually need some sort of explosion to keep me interested in. Puzzle games are also fun though.

Since it's school time, game playing has been much less than usual.

Yeah, so I've always spent many many hours going through Destructoid stories and the clogs, but I never have blogged myself. So here I go... so where should I start? Eh, I'll just talk about games I've been playing recently and whatnot.

I have a feeling this is something I'm gonna get addicted to.

I've just joined Goozex. So far, I'm a little skeptical of the value of me joining this trading community is. So far, I've given A LOT of games, but have kind of put myself in a position where there's nothing I really want in return. For now, Final Fantasy XII is on it's way - I've never played a Final Fantasy game and I thought it would be a fine place to start. I've also purchased Final Fantasy IV - I'll see if I get into the series or not.

Last night, I rearranged the way that a bunch of my consoles (from Snes to PS3) are hooked up to my living room set and kept it all organized. By the way, if you're a gamer with a family that can't understand switching television inputs and they go nuts when you leave the TV on the "not cable" station, I recommend you purchase a remote with macros. I use the Harmony 880 and it does the job very well.

This summer, starting from mid June (right as high school was ending for me), I've played through Metal Gear Solid 4 and Uncharted. I've also been playing a lot of Skate (I have no idea why I am so addicted to this game) and some Singstar with my little sister (possibly I'm a narcissist, but the best part of the that game is basically anything that involves using the eye. I find watching myself in replay utterly hilarious). I've also been slowly going through Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes and Ninja Gaiden Sigma (I refuse to go to Ninja Dog difficulty!). Right now though, my focus is on a recently purchased Bioshock. It was on Steam for 15 bucks, so I HAD to buy it.

This summer, I'm basically going through all the games I've ever wanted to finish (AH! Just thought of one - I NEED to complete Grim Fandango, I started it in December and just kind of stopped after a family vacation) before I go to college. I've decided to postpone my gaming for my first semester so that I A: Don't fail out and B: Because I'm rather shy, I know that with the option of gaming I would end up like a hermit in my dorm instead of making friends.

I kind of like this blog thing. Here's what I'll do. I guess I can jump start this thing by talking about my impressions/progress in the games I'm playing this summer. It will probably be better though if I separate the games by post - this one is getting too long (that's what she said).
