About
Hey, I'm Stoo, I live in Fife, Scotland.

Online I enjoyed podcasting, I run Podcast On Fire - "It's Asian Cinema, in a Podcast". Been running it since October 07, total of 25 shows so far as well as at least 30-50 Deleted Conversations/Outtakes etc. So it's pretty much obvious that I'm huge fan of Asian Cinema, been collecting movies for 5 years now and I have probably 200 imports, everything from the old old VCDs to the latest Dragon Dynasty release.

For Gaming, I started out with a Commador 64, playing games like; The Last Ninja 2, this thing with a duck and terminator two, it's all pretty vague. Then I got the usual consoles growing up; Game Boy (Loved playing Legends of Zelda Links Awakening), Sega Mega Drive (I think I only really played Sonic and Theme Park on it), then there was a gap until I got a Playstation w/Final Fantasy VII and once I managed to get into the style of Final Fantasy 7, it became my life, I collected 6, 8 and 9 after that, but only completed 8. I then moved onto the Playstation 2 where I bought and played Final Fantasy 10 (I managed to complete that) and several of the Dynasty Warrior games (with my love of Asian Cinema, this game was so much fun). With the X-Box 360 and Playstation 3 coming out I couldn't decide which title to go with, then one day with far too much money on my hands I ended up buying a X-Box 360, I've had it for nearly two years now and I love it! (even thought I've had to send it back and forth for repairs twice, bloody red light!). This year I also bought a Nintendo Wii and this afternoon I bought a Nintendo DS Lite (15/08/08)!

For Destructoid, I love the community, I wish I was more of a part of it, but I don't know too much about games and their developers, although I'm hooked on all of the sites podcasts, I started off just listening to Podtoid, then tried my luck with Retroforce and thought the show was great! With Podcastle starting up I thought it was another fine edition to my iPod.

I've also tried really hard to get into the Euro FNF, but I've managed to have a game of Call of Duty 4, a free-for-all on Shipment where I ended up coming in second :D I must clear my friday nights for more gaming sessions

So Games I'm currently playing now;

Orange Box (HL2: E2 & TF2)
Puzzle Quest
Braid Trial Demo
Call of Duty 4
Final Fantasy III

oh and here's a picture of me and a big pint!

My biggest weakness with my X-Box 360 is buying the arcade games. I foolishly bought Bomberman LIVE. Then playing I notice - I'm terrible at the game! I'm bloody horrible, I can't play it, I've never won. Not online or on Single Player. I can't believe I spent credit on buying. I should have really downloaded the trail and pissed about with that, but no I'm a idiot.

I just remember the good old days of playing Bomberman on the original Game Boy, being a awfully faint memory, surely I was better at it then.

Since that I completely ignored the game until a evening where I catched with my mate on XBL, he complained that the Drive to his X-Box was fucked. So He could only play the games stored on his Hard Drive.

We give Bomberman one more try, going online we done a match together with a third bloke, that third bloke hammered us with considerable easy. I continually rant "Why did I waste money on this fucking game!!". Even with the Destrucoid Bomberman guy coming out, I was like - Oh I need to get it. But No!! I can't.

It's not as bad with other games; Sonic was fun, still to complete it. Same goes for Streets of Rage 2.

I think I need some restraint. *inhale* *exhale*.

Yeah that's my rant over with.

Do any of you guys have similar problems where you buy games on live and think "aww fuck I wish tried the trail"
