This Intro Is Terrible.....ly Good

If you haven't read my about me section already, then this is all new to you. Read it if you want to fill in any holes in my logic. Done? Wait, you're not going to read it? All right, your loss.

I don't have a particularly interesting writing style, but I think I should still try to entertain whilst I finally introduce myself to the c-bloggers. You may have read my hilarious/insightful comments around the sight, and thought to yourself, "Who's this cool guy, coming here and writing such funny things for unworthy me?"

Well, don't be so humble, I see you all as my equal (for the time being), so feel free to read on with ease. Well, I'm rambling now, let's get down to business.

I found Destructoid a couple of years ago (I believe it was in the middle of 2007) when a program by the name of Attack of the Show was highlighting game blogs. Destructoid was one of a few, so I gave it a whirl. At first I merely read the news once in a while, not interested in the community section of the site because I was a loyal member of MyNintendo and their forums(I was at Octorawk status). Then Nintendo relinquished the forums in their major site overhaul, and I was left without a home.

I began lurking Destructoid, reading and laughing at the comments at the end of the news stories. I began looking in the forums, having been a fairly avid goblin of forums. I was amazed at how cordial everybody was. Nintendo's forums ran rampant with trolls and flaming wars, but this place had somehow managed to abolish these banes of forum existence. I soon created an account using my same name- LuigiBeast- from Nintendo and wrote my intro thread.

It was a fail post, but everyone gave me polite criticism instead of the kind that made me cry back in Nintendo. Nonetheless, I got distracted for the next 3 years and stopped visiting the forums. My computer sat, saddened by the fact that I no longer went on forums, giving people the business. But this summer, I've gone through a rennaissance, and found that I should embrace my urges, and my urges were telling me to find friends to share in my love of video games.

I remembered Destructoid had a vast community that expanded beyond the forums and decided to begin looking into the site as a whole. I discovered a multi-verse of awesomeness stitched into every aspect of the site. A world where NARPS and FNF existed and people were writing awesome things daily in the C-blogs. I created an account to start writing comments on people's stories and slowly begin assimilating into Dtoid culture. I haven't managed to offend anyone yet, so I'm good so far, and hopefully this intro doesn't ruin it.

In the month where I left comments, I managed to reach an achievment I thought was out of reach: A writer for Destructoid acknowledged my existence. TWICE!

I achieved a "Thanks! Banned" from Hamza CTZ Aziz for reporting foul play in the comments. You say that doesn't count? Well how about this one

Jonathan "Darkman" Holmes weighed in on my trollish statement! If you're not impressed by that, then all reasoning is lost on you....

Well, that's how I met Destructoid. As for the usual stuff, I've been a Nintendo fanboy my whole life I guess. If you read my about me you'd understand the reasoning behind it. I do plan on getting a 360 by the end of the month, but I feel silly carrying so many bills in my pocket to the game store. Therefore, I plan on getting a bank account now that they seem to be safe from the Depression, and paying by ATM.

My top 5 favortie games would be:
1. Super Mario World
2. Super Mario Bros. 3
3. LoZ:Oot
4. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy Kong's Quest
5. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (GC)

Uhhh, what else....? I own an SNES, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Gameboy Color, DSiXL, PS2, and an iPod touch which happens to be what I use to go on Destructoid most of the time due to the convenience.

I hope you enjoyed reading this, cuz I enjoyed writing it for you ;)

About HandsomeBeastone of us since 6:44 PM on 07.14.2010

I can't resist an oppurtunity to write about myself. I'm a fungi and I don't like to party. I prefer a cool damp place to chill in cuz I'm cool and damp. You can find me just vegetating in my house which is actually my parents' house. Having no income other than government reparation checks, I figured crashing with my old man and old lady will help alleviate the pressures of their life as they near twilight. I never get out and I don't plan on doing so in the near future. I thought this place could use some good looking me grace the c-blogs, having spent the last decade or so modeling for big corporations pro bono. I actually discovered Destructoid through reccomendations from one of my many fans.

If you can see my recently posted header, I'm a 69 years old Polynesian man living vicariously through the internet. After retiring from the drug game, I decided to lay low and assume a more humble lifestyle as to avoid cops. As a result, I came across this cave where nuclear scientists created an electronic tennis game from an oscilloscope. I've secretly followed the world of video games ever since then.

I didn't actually play any vidja games with my hands until 1997, having been imprisoned since the '40s by the U.S. government for stumbling onto their nuclear science project all those years ago. It was a Super Nintendo, and I played Super Mario World until the cartridge would bleed. To cut it some slack, I also played Super Mario All-Stars, Pinocchio, Super Street Fighter II, Extra Innings, and Donkey Kong Country 2.

I progressively continued playing Nintendo stuff because the world of war and corrupt state prison had made me a peaceful man, and I did not favor the more mature, violent alternative systems. Fast-forward to 2007 when I discovered Destructoid after the Nintendo forums were shut down. I've been watching you closely and have come to care for your community of intelligents and rogue thugs, so I decided to share my story with all of you- something I've never shared with a member of the animal kingdom with the ability to talk.

Hope I see you around, and you comment on my stuff, cuz it's like crack to me when I read somebody's input on my ramblings ;(
