I started visiting Dtoid when RetroForce Go! started. I signed up in July 2007 and found a new place for blogging about one of my favorite hobbies: gaming. Since then, Dtoid has been at the center of my gaming life, whether it was listening to RF Go!, competing in Haxan's SFII HD Remix contest or running my own King of Fighters XII contest. My interests shifted from niche SRPGs and action games back to the genres which really got me into gaming: fighters and shmups. My tastes eventually shifted from Capcom fighters, my bread and butter back in the day, to SNK titles which were games I played casually. These events all happened in the last 3 years and were documented in my cblog.
I launched Dream Cancel
in July of this year and it is the new center of my gaming life. The SNK community has really embraced the concept and vision of the site. Now, when I'm online, I'm usually looking for SNK news or working on either the Dream Cancel wikis
and when I'm gaming I'm playing SNK fighters. I've recently bought an Xbox 360 just for the downloadable SNK games.
When I consider this and the future of Dtoid, I realize that Dream Cancel is more important to me. I'm more interested in contributing to the gaming community as a whole rather than Dtoid specifically. I'll still check the front page from time-to-time and maybe even check in on the forums but my presence here will be greatly diminished.
Thanks, Dtoid, and good luck.
