About
Hi, I'm Kepler, I'm 20 and I'm from the UK.

I think I probably fall into the category of "casual" gamer by the standards of many of you, but thats only due to time restraints - I love games as much as the next person on here.

My favourite kind of game is most definately the RPG, particularly the Final Fantasy series (I'll probably get called a fanboy, although I'm not) and also Lost Odyssey and Mass Effect, which I believe are two outstanding titles for the 360. I've also got a slightly unhealthy obsession with the Elder Scrolls series.

Closely followed is probably the strategy and sim game genre. I absolutely love C&C, particularly Red Alert 2, as well as the Age of Empires series. I've loved Sim City games since I was quite young, and more recently some of the 'Tycoon' titles. I also enjoyed old Bullfrog games such as Theme Hospital and Dungeon Keeper (sadly I don't seem to be able to get them to work on my current PC).

I'm also a fan of FPSs, and am currently sinking endless hours into COD4, and trying to complete Rainbow Six Vegas before I move onto the second one.

I love the Grand Theft Auto franchise, with San Andreas and GTA4 being two of my favourite games ever.

All in all, I'm probably a pretty main-stream gamer, but I hope that this community can help me widen my horizons in regards to the games I play, and point me to new avenues that I haven't particularly explored before.

Hey kepler, 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?
