About
My name is Spenser, I'm 23, and currently a full time college student. I grew up gaming my entire life from Paper Boy and Jaws on the NES to a DS / PSP / Wii / PC / PS3 now (sorry Xbox). I'm open to most types of games, but I have to say my favorites are Action / Adventure, RPGs, and Fighting. I'm not all that into racing games unless it's something like Mario Kart or ModNation Racers where I can shoot my opponents and goof around with it. I also try to avoid most sports games now because they get me way too competative and give me a sailor's mouth. To be honest, I also lack experience with FPS games, but I'm working on it. I used to only play Goldeneye or Perfect Dark back on N64, but a friend had me buy Borderlands not too long ago and I have slowly been warming up to them again.

All gaming aside, if you have any questions, feel free to ask. I'm pretty laid back and always willing to listen. x]

Hey xyuberx, 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?
