LONG BLOG

A re-introduction of an old old member.

   0
Come one come all fellow DToiders. Wow, I have not done this in quite a long time.

I suppose this should be a re-introduction of myself. My name is Mike, and I'm from PA. I used to post quite a good amount back in 07/08 (in fact I see a ton of the cblogs that I have now hidden were all written in 08). I forget how, but I found Destructoid one day and was just a fan ever since. I was young and naive and used to get my news from other sources, until this fantastic community came to rise.

Back in the day, you saw all the familiar names, the community was small and (as always) very awesome. I remember seeing the familiar names and cracking up. You had the ever sarcastic BahamutZero, the hilarious and never censored CheeBurga, you had the amazing Cowzilla, harassmentpanda, king3vbo and snaileb always being there to yell at me, call me names, keep the community at check, all while adding to the lulz. Then there will always be the old man, great Uncle Yoj1mbo. Tons more people made this community what it was, I just don't have the memory to actually list them all.

I still use the same photobucket account that I have used from when I started cblogging, and I love seeing some of the old uploads. Some of the shirts that I was trying to design for you guys, I don't even understand half of the things that I see. I'm sure they were all just inside jokes from years ago. I mean just look at this terrible one of Jim:



And it really was only a matter of time before he took over the world. Look at all that crap that man can post in one day now :p

I have received a few prizes from Destructoid as well, I still have every single one of them. The contests were hilarious, often required a lot of silly quotations or photoshops. The day that my GamerSac delivered and I realized just how large of a "beanbag" I had won, and had to carry that huge box home was a day that I won't soon forget.

I am so FLOORED to just see how much this site has grown. I can not believe that this once smaller community has blown up to be the huge success that it is. I really have to commend you Niero for putting together such a fantastic business and gaming community. I have to admit that I don't know a few of the names of writers, and I see that a couple people have left for bigger careers. But it is nice to still remember a good amount of the people who do write.

Anyway, I have a lot of catching up to do, I can see that now. I have missed this community immensely!

Enough tear-jerking. And again congratulations to the success of this site!
