LONG BLOG

Ummm... Hello? My Introductory Blog

   0


Well hey there, this is my introductory blog that Iíve noticed is a must around these parts. Iíve been lurking around Destructoid now for about a year and Iíve finally mustered up all my courage and felt the need to jump the gun and dive head first into this community. Iím not sure why, it could be because over this large period of time, Iíve noticed how closely knit this community is and I wanted to be a part of it or maybe itís just the can of beer I had for lunch, we will never know. Itís the community thing, I promise.


When I typed "can of beer" into google images, google finished my sentence for me to "can of beer in chicken" and this popped up.. Made my day.

Anyway, so who am I? Well... I go by the name Zwoooosh and I live in Melbourne, Australia. Iím still a student in high school heading into Year 11 next year so you know, watch the rape jokes... Their watching... Iím starting this blog I guess as a way to vent my thoughts on things that continually nibble on my brain, and feeding the need to write and just be creative. Generally though, this blog will be about those good olí video games. So look for some random thoughts jotted down and some somewhat half decent thought provoking thingys. Any who, Iíve been a Sony boy my whole life, starting with the PS1 and moving onto the PS2 and PS3. I enjoy most genres of games but right now Iíve really been sucked into Assassinís Creed Brotherhood and Gran Turismo 5 at the moment. One of my favourite games of all time is Uncharted 2, meaning I am super amped about the upcoming sequel next year, Drake's Deception.



Iím a massive music fan, I like most genres but I have my favourites, generally very soulful and hip-hop/rap types of music. I am a sucker for deep and meaningful music or music with a story. Oh and if itís delivered in a clever or complex way... Well you had me at the words sucker and deep. I wonít recommend any of my music yet but if youíd like to know more, just question me in the comments. I also was an avid basketball player, it was my life really but I tore my ACL a few months ago and required a full knee reconstruction which has left me at home for long periods of time. Now I am not looking for sympathy or anything like that. Life is full of crap like that and thereís not much you can do about it, just always make the best of the situation. In one way, it really reconnected me to the world of gaming and look at it in a deeper light. It has kept me entertained and in fairly good spirits when I easily could have been depressed or high on pain killers. A man can only watch a certain amount of day time television before he loses his mind you know. Diving into a character or story that can truly take you out of the real world and immerse you in another is a special thing that really only games can deliver. So in my first blog, I pose the question to you fellow readers. When facing adversity or a tough period in your life, what types of games do you like to play? Why do you play those games? Do you not play at all? Feel free to share in the comments.

I hope Iíve made a good enough first impression and that I fit into this amazing community. If you have any tips for me to improve and be more tolerable, please don't hold back and let me have it.

About Zwooooshone of us since 1:41 AM on 02.08.2010

Well hey there, the name is Zwoooosh but of the internet, I'm generally called Nathan. It sounds a bit more normal I suppose. Anyway, I'm a 17 year old kid/manchild from Melbourne, Australia and I'm a gamer. I got into gaming as a young kid when my parents bought me a PS1 for Christmas all those years ago. God I remember playing the shit out of that. Any who I then moved on to the PS2 in 2002 and then onto my now current console, the PS3.

I'm into music and movies and am currently being self taught in visual effects as my friends and myself are heavily into film making ourselves. But you know when you have a dream and that dream then goes and bangs every idea you've ever had and then your just left with a bunch of idiotic thoughts and a lousy hangover? Yeah me either, but essentially we have so many projects under way, I don't know if we'll ever finish one of them. But enough about that, back to the games yeah?

A few of my favorite games:
The Uncharted series
Assassin's Creed series
Red Dead Redemption
Fallout 3/NV
Dead Space 2
Mass Effect 2
Portal
InFamous 2

Oh hey! I write for Gamingbus now and guess what? We're hiring. If you are at interested, I implore you to take a gander right over here. I promise it won't hurt and you'll grow to love that probe like feeling. Journalism!
