Short Story is that I'm a 15-year old ninja from Brooklyn, and I love video games.
Favorite Games, in no order
Shadow of the Colossus
Sly Cooper and the Thevius Raccoonus
Call of Duty 4
Guitar Hero 2
Uncharted: Drakes Fortune
God of War (still need to buy the sequel)
I'm a comment whore, so if you see me posting multiple comments in your blog, it's probably because you're very handsome.
In conclusion buy a PS3 and play some games with me and the other awesome people here.
!0. I love these things. I could eat a whole box in under 3 minutes. Have you ever had one? They're fucking delicious.
9.Like Jimbo, I play video games every day, or at least I try to. I get a little sad if I don't, cause playing games is a part of my life, that is very very important to me. Were my house to ever be on fire, my PS3 and a handful of games would be the furst things I try to save. And then my unnamed bird, cause I love him.
8. We have an unnamed bird, and I love him. I don't have a picture of him right now and this is written in a rush (superbowl party), but he's a green parrot, and he's fucking awesome.
7. Next to the usual Shadow of the Colossus and Half-Life 2, my favoritest game is Ace Combat 5. I don't think I've ever met another person who feels about it like I do. The story is fantastic, as well as the music and gameplay, and it's also the first game that made me cry at the death of a character.
6. I love to swim. I'm not very good at it, but for as long as I can rememer I've been on swim teams, gone to swim camps, and raced frineds in the ocean, and had a lot of fun doing it. Some FNFs had to be sasrificed in order for me to attend meets.
5. I really want to work in Psychology when I'm older. I'm absolutely fascinated by the subject, and I plan on that being my major in college.
4. I really want to live in San Francisco when I'm older. I've been to that city twice now, and I have to say it's one of the most incredible places I've been to.
3. I'm going to be attending the New York Comic-Con for free this year. Me, two friends and my girlfriend will be working with a T-shirt company, then we get to walk around do wahtever we want.
2. Two summers ago, (around the time I found Dtoid) I had to attend summer school for the first time ever. It's obviously not something I'm proud of, and only my close friends and family know about it. It was for english, but it all leveled out because that summer was undoubtedly the greatest ever for me. I'm doing better now.
1. You all already know this, but I love you guys. This site is absolutely-fucking-incredible, and I am damn PROUD to be a part of it. So everyone, keep on being amazing.
Happy Birthday sir! I hope it's awesome. It's always exciting to know there's a famous celebrity on the site, it really shows our development as a blog and a community. Anyway, I was gonna try to send you a present, but the UPS guy said he wouldn't ship ero hentai, and that I was totally wearing a fake moustache. Hope you can find something else to masturbate to.
It's that time of the year again, and here are my hopes and dreams for this time around. As you all know, I own only a PS3, thus this post is a bit Sony-oriented.
New Mirror's Edge trailer/info on the game
As I write this post, this wish has already come true. I'm excited for this game because of it's 'true' first person perspective, and it's artisitic theme of bright, vibrant colors, with no hints of any gray or dark tones anywhere, and it's promise of a parkour style of gameplay. In addition, the daughter of a favorite writer of mine, Terry Pratchett, is the writer of the story. I hope his explosive imagination carries on a generation.
Info on Home
This one is a shoe-in. Sony is really riding on this to be succesful, even though most, including myself, know it won't be a system-seller. Nontheless, I'm pretty excited for it, and the last load of info we got on it, with the game-rooms and what not, reminded me it might not suck.
Uncharted 2 trailer/info
Clearly fake, but wouldn't this be cool? Bigger version included
The first Uncharted was a fantatsic game, with a great story, great actors, and top-notch graphics, and played out just like a movie. I want the second one to improve on all of these. Original, creative story, more characters, and higher resolution support. It also needs to be longer. There is a possibility this will happen.
New Jak and Daxter game announced. From Naughty Dog. That doesn't suck.
The Jak and Daxter franchise is one of my favorite franchises of all time. On the extremely slight chance this happens, I hope ND decides to return to the original platforming gameplay, and extend on the story from the first three (four, if you count Daxter). I hated Jak X, simply because of it's deviation from the story and gameplay of the last.
New Infamous trailer, release date, hands-on demo
This will most likely happen, considering the last time we heard about this game was from E3 '07. I'm very excited for this, and I can't wait to see where Sucker Punch goes with this.
New Sly Cooper game announced
Why does Neyla look like a prostitute in this picture?
Since I already mentioned Sucker Punch, I might as well go onto this. Sly Cooper is another one of my favorite franchises, and the studio has already said a return to the series is very likely. While I doubt this is going to happen, it'd be nice for at least a mention of new game to happen.
It was meant for a GOD, not for YOU! Not for...a blogger!
Yes,I KNOW it's not coming to E3 but I can dream can't I? This is one of my most anticipated titles this year. I didn't love Psychonauts as much as most people do, but Tim Schafer certainly has an original mind, and I'm VERY excited for this. Besides, he might be at PAX, which isn't too far away.
ANYTHING regarding the new game from Team Ico
I am not even going to go into this. If you aren't excited for whatever the hell they are working on, kill yourself now.
I want something new, something fresh. An original IP that's gonna steal the show. This could be anything, and I'm hoping someone can make this happen.
God of War 3 details, trailer
Mmmmmmmmmmmmm, the mythology filled gory badass deliciousness. I expect to see at least SOMETHING on this tomorrow, or I'm gonna be a very sad panda. I haven't even played the second one yet, but I already know this is gonna be mine. No waiting a year for its price to drop this time. God, I can't wait.
Anything that involves LittleBigPlanet
OH GOD YES!!!
I shit myself anytime I watch anything about this game. I'm so incredibly excited for this, I can't stand it. Antyhing, a trailer, a release date, new info, I'll take it.
No, this is not a post about the horrid new beach-color theme Destructoid has decided to wear, Necros has got that handled, and I understand that there are bills to pay, and methods other than the usual grandma-beatings and lap dances must be utilized. Besides, changing 'sweet' to 'sweat' was pretty clever.
This is actually about an inappropriate (in terms of the context of the site) ad that I saw, and it's placement here.
Of course, I never had, and never will, have a problem with any side, or banner ads here, (I seldom look at them anyway) but an ad, smack in the middle of two posts, I'm not sure I like. Clicking it took me to some horrid actor/skank talking about pheromones.
I don't usually complain, but a sexually themed ad right in between posts, isn't really cool. If there's some reason behind this, I'll understand, but otherwise...
P.S. To all those sending me invitations in GTA4, I'm not accepting them because I'm rude, the story just has an iron grip over me. Once I finish that, I'll probably be online more.
No. I already did one of those Turning Point gaming rig blogs, but that one showed my PC, this shows my room, where I play violent video games, to corrupt my feeble young mind, and increase my tolerance for taking a real human life. Virtually. That being said, let's get on to the potential fail.
Heres what I beleive to be my 13" SD televison, that I won a couple years back. It has served me well, but I wouldn't mind having 1080p flat-screen on my wall. Next to it is my lovely 60GB shiny peice of wonder, that I got in August of last year, a month after I joined Destructoid. The USB ports have a keyboard, my old eyetoy camera, and the charger cable for the SIXAXIS in them. All this rests upon my very old dresser, filled with clothes, illegal substances, and the Tenacious D movie. I don't know why it's in there.
My collection of games and movies. As you can see, I don't have many of both, because when I was younger I pretty much broke and lost many of them, also, because I do not have a job, and my parents seldom give me moeny. Even if I worked for that money. Cheap bastards. Missing from here is Burnout Paradise, and San Andreas, both of which lent to friends. In the corner is an empty sprite can.
What? It's a fucking chair. Other than it sits directly across from my TV, what else is there to say? In the picture you can see the box for warhawk (not the plastic, the cardboard one it came in) and I gumball machine that I never use.
To the left of my chair is my GH3 controller, and a dirty sign I found in the street. And an old radiator. And scissors on a windowsill.
Here is my desk, which sits under my loft bed. On it, you can see some broken up lego bits, World War Z (that I read twice), a lava lamp, Hardware Wars, two clocks, a swimming trophy, and some big books. In the bottom lefthand corner you can see God of War sitting on another little chair I have. I also have a pillow under my desk.
Yes, I hung a USB cable from my ceiling fan. Which is missing a lightbulb.
Finally, because my walls are so bare, between the door to my room, and the ladder leading to my bed is the Destructoid Mosaic that I was not a part of.
Well that's pretty much it. I would have shown you my floor but it's littered with random crap, and I would have shown you baby penis If Vexed Alex hadn't already done that. In closing, women should not be allowed to vote.
