Perri is Back, new format.


Good excuse for me to use this image again.

Hey everybody,

Thought I'd give the return/new format it's own post, just to get back into the swing of things.

I've redone my banner, sidebar information has been updated [read it!] and I've got a few announcements.

I've got a couple of things in the works including some on-going series' I want to do:

1. "Almost Videogame related" [or AVGR]

This series would document things I notice in the real world that reminded me or flat out reference videogames. I've got a couple things for the first few, hopefully the world will provide me with the rest.

2. "What if?"

With this series I'll be examining hypothetical videogame mash-ups. For example, What if Chrono Trigger was done in the Windwaker art style. Most of these will probably be art related, with drawings!

uh...Thought I had more, that'll do though! So, look forward to these...Or don't? That's what I'll be doing! along with typical blog stuff. Oh- don't expect these to be happening on a regular basis, I'm anything but consistent.

Something else I thought I'd share. I'm Graduating - as my side bar will also reveal. I'm pretty excited to get out of school and into the 'real world'. By the way the 'real world' is the same as university, with less distraction(read: assignments) I'm still going to keep learning, it'd be hard not too. More importantly I can finally catch up on a ton of games I bought but haven't been able to play. I'll give a brief update:

1. Bought Deadly Creatures on release; just beat it: Surprisingly satisfying gameplay, intriguing storytelling, ended before it got too repetitive.

2. Bought MadWorld I've only played it for about two hours, combat feels soo so good. Funny, haven't gotten anywhere.

3. WarioLand: Shake It. Pretty good, needs to be harder- half way through.

4. WiiWare: Bit.Trip.Beat, Incredible game, only on level 2. Bought Mega Man 9 when it came out, nowhere near beating that yet.

5. Virtual Console: Super Mario RPG, Secret of Mana, Mystical Ninja, Mega Man, Kirby's Dream Course, Link to the Past, and...some more. I haven't beaten any VC games yet, ugh.

6. Got Bootcamp up and running on my iMac, Tons of stuff there: A couple hours into Bioshock, got Orange Box when it was on sale and beat Portal, no time to describe how amazing that game is. Still have to get to Half-Life 2 +episodes and Braid!

7. PS2/GC gems I missed and got on the cheap. I love this generation because it makes all the last generation games so much cheaper! I picked up Shadow of the Colosseus, 11th battle. Castle of Shikigami 2, Silpheed, Killer 7, Eternal Darkness, Silent Hill 2.

9. Some retro games I bought but haven't beaten: Mega Man X, X2, Super Ghouls n' Ghosts (ya right.), Adventure Island (ya right again), Aladdin, Lion King, Kirby 64, a few NES games that are too broken to beat.

10. DS Games: Moon, Castlevania PoR, Pokemon Diamond,

Bored yet? Also- this is not me, Thanks Google!

So that is my epic backlog, most of which has accumulated during the last school year. Making a list actually horrifies/excites me a lot more than just thinking about it. There are also a number games I still want to buy! Like Kirby Super Star Ultra, Professor Layton, Punch Out!! (I can wait on that one though), I dunno, enough lists...

If anybody wants to suggest an order I should play these in, that'd be pretty cool.

So- I'm back, again. This is the second, return post I've done- not a good sign.

welcome to Perritoid,
art, games, awesome.

Hey Dtoid. Welcome to perritoid!

I'm a 23 year old artist/teacher. While in University I experimented mostly with Animation, Video, and Games.

The lovely [dearly departed] Anthony Burch* featured the fruits of my experimentation here on Destructoid as part of the Indie Nation Series Which probably is one of the coolest things that has ever happened to me! One of many reasons why I love Destructoid.

*The [formerly] Resident Person Named Anthony Who Isn't Anthony Perri.

My first console was the SNES. It remains my favourite, and I've been playing games ever since without pause. Recently I've been a little burned out on the modern sensibilities of a suddenly overwhelmingly Western market. Most of the HD games don't appeal to me.

I currently live in Korea where I teach english and avoid Starcraft [and the north].
