Oh, hello there D-Toid. It's me again, your good buddy Lazerpig, here to write my introductory blog post thing. This is actually my third post, after two explaining why I don't like Metroid games. I'm thinking about making that into a series; explaining why I don't like popular games in a well written, non-inflammatory fashion.
As it says in my bio, my first video game memory was playing Super Mario Brothers with some other kids who had my same baby sitter. It was fun. I ate Mexican food for the first time. I remember being pretty good, but I'm not sure how accurate this memory is, because I was 3, and I also remember thinking I was the red ghost in Pac-Man around the same age.
Right now I'm going to college in Boca Raton, Florida. Lot of botox, fake tans, and wankstas down here. I'm transferring to Champlain College in Vermont in the fall. A lot of people there go on to work in the video game industry, which is something I'd like to do. I'm looking forward to it.
Last time I measured, I was six feet, ten inches tall. I'll have to measure again one of these days, I'd really like to be an even seven feet.
I've been lurking on Destructoid a long time, ever since it was featured on Attack of the Show. Destructoid convinced me to buy Zack and Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, which is quite possibly the best game ever made. Thanks D-Toid!
I named one of my cats Tango. After the cat in Megaman 5. That's probably one of the nerdiest things I've done.
So awesome... Gaming stuff
As of right now, I've beaten somewhere around 151 games. Oddly enough, I regret nothing.
Some of my favorite games are
Fallout 1 and 2
Zack and Wiki
Super Mario Galaxy
Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Legend of Zelda: Oracle of Ages
Final Fantasy VI, Woolsey edition
Ratchet and Clank 2: Going Commando
Earthbound (I like it better than Mother 3, but that's probably just due to nostalgia)
The Boktai series
Both Golden Suns
The best day of my life was easily my tenth birthday, when I got my first game boy color. I had been begging my parents for a game boy for years, and I had actually given up; I didn't even bother asking this year. Imagine my surprise when I opened the box, and I got a lime green gameboy color, and Pokemon yellow edition. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy just typing this... As it also says in my bio, the --> and A buttons have been heavily worn down from Super Mario Brothers Deluxe, and they barely register anymore, but I consider this a badge of honor.
You owe me a new game boy!
I think the GBA was the best system so far. Then maybe the DS, because it can play GBA games.
Not gaming (aka not important) stuff!
I like to draw, but I'm not very good. I don't let that stop me, though. I enjoy anime, dubbed of course. Afro Samurai is awesome, and so is Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I liked Battle Tendency best. I actually have one of the Jojo DVDs, which I'm fairly proud of.
Destructoid, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Also, here's a drawing I did in public speaking. It's an octopus eating a muffin-chip muffin.
Do all posts need to have tags? I don't know what tag to put this under.
