Imagine! Blogging

Hi everyone!

I wasn�t really planning to do an introduction blog, but upon browsing through the community it seems like a thing people do.

I�ve been a casual reader of Destructoid since whenever I first started seeing Destructoid get linked to and talked about. Maybe like 2008 or 2009? I don�t know. I started visiting with more regularity in about 2011 and comment on posts a lot. I�m one of those dudes that show up as my real name because I just use my Facebook account. Sometimes I even use my Twitter account instead!

Occasionally, I�ll blab on about a game or some sort of gaming-related topic on a forum or Facebook or Twitter, and a few people have suggested I try writing a blog. I�m not sure if they�re just trying to get rid of me or if they�re genuinely encouraging me, but here I am!

A bit about me:
- I somehow suckered my parents into buying me a Genesis for my birthday after buying my sister and I a Super NES for Christmas just 18 months or so before. I have been a fairly avid console buyer ever since. I love getting my hands on new hardware and seeing what it�s all about. At least once the games and price point are where I want them to be.

- I have almost spent $1337 on Steam and I�m trying to find purchases I can make that will round the number out nicely. I believe I�m $6.64 away. Any suggestions?

- I�m a regular listener of Podtoid and The Dismal Jesters. I also watch Sup Holmes when I can. Just can�t get enough Holmes. What a lovely boy he is.�

- I attended college for �Game Art and Design�. As you might imagine, it�s hardly a direct path to a career. As demonstrated by the fact that�

- I work in QA. Major publisher, I can probably say who but I won�t right now. I worked for a smaller mobile company for a bit and it actually managed to make the big soulless corporation seem more appealing. I think it�s something to do with the games not being designed like slot machines?

- I also dabble in game development and have made some crappy games, most of them not readily available for sharing. I have one I've been working on for a while that I hope is good one day.

Anyway, I have a few actual posts planned that I�ll put the effort into creating at some point. Please be excited!

You can find me on Twitter at @adammcdonald and I also have a Word Press blog/portfolio/whatever at http://adammcd.com.

About Adam McDonaldone of us since 3:24 AM on 11.13.2011

I live on the west coast of Canada and like video games.

I got an SNES for Christmas in 1992 and haven't looked back (though I don't know many 4-year-olds that regress back to being babies).

I have some game-making abilities and am always trying to learn more.
