Hey there my name is David Jenkins, I am currently 17 and live in California. I have been gaming from the start of three or so, I'd say. In my lifetime I have owned a NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, PSP, Sega Genesis, Sega Saturn, Sega Dreamcast, PS1, PS2, Xbox, and Xbox 360. So, as you can see I've done quite a bit of gaming in my time (I sound like an old geezer.) I plan on getting a PS3 in the near-future. (MGS4 and FFXIII, do want.)
Currently I am the managing editor for my newspaper at my school and have my own column dedicated to video games, such as reviews, previews, ect. It's pretty sweet, I hope to one day become a video game journalist and join this crazy industry.
Hmmm..I really don't know what else to say except for the fact that my favorite bands are Weezer and The Beatles, I may have a secret crush on Paul McCartney and Rivers Cuomo, shhhhhh.
Yep, that's it, if you want to know more about me then feel free to PM me. I'll try my best not to suck.
Games Currently playing:
-Gears of War 2
Hey there, I can't say that I am new user here to good ol' dtoid, as I have been a lurker for quite sometime now and only now have decided to show myself and post my first blog. Let's get all the basic information out of the way (which most of it can be found on the right side of my blog). My name is David, I am 16 (soon to be 17 once Monday rolls around) and I currently live in California. (I'm not telling you the city I live in, pervs. yes Mr. Sadistic, I'm looking at you.)
See? I already feel like a stalker since I know so many people here, yet none of you even have the slightest idea of who I am, kind of creepy, but whatever. Let's see here, I have been gaming since, oh say around the age of three or so. My very first system was the NES (It was my dad's) I soon later upgraded to the SNES, yes I grew up with Nintendo and still am faithful to this day (even if they refuse to jump into the 21st century). However, I am far from being a fanboy, trust me. I currently own a Xbox 360 (currently in the shop), Nintendo Wii, PSP, DS, and my own custom-built PC rig. I plan on a getting a PS3 in the near-future (MGS4, fap).
I'd say that my favorite franchises would be Metal Gear Solid, Final Fantasy, Halo, Sonic (By a thin hair, trust me. C'mon Sonic Unleashed, don't suck), Mario, Zelda, Resident Evil, and Super Smash. Yup, as a gamer, I'd classify myself as hardcore, I suppose. I am pretty much open when it comes to game and really do not have a favorite "genre". Some of my favorite games of all time are Resident Evil 4, Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Final Fantasy VIII (I know, not VII ZOMG LOLZ), my secret jp-title only that Koobert recommended to me, On No Kujira Ham Soldier Sanwich and I'm too lazy to think of others.
My favorite movies would be Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, Cloverfield, the Indiana Jones and Star Wars Series, just thought I'd add that in.
I really wanted to join on the day of dtoid's/Niero's b-day since that was a day full of such awesome, so maybe I could have sneaked in with my suckiness. But. I have been without an internet connection the past couple of days (I had to view it all on my iPhone's beautiful edge network). But, better late then never, right?
So, yeah I really cannot think of anything else to write about for my first post, only that I am glad to finally be part of dtoid community and I hope to get to know everybody better. I hope to participate in all of the community evens such as FNF and what not. So, yeah I'll try my best not to suck too badly, but I can't guarantee anything.
If you really want to know more about me, I have a little bit of more info that I plan on updating soon right over there --->
