Happy birthday to a special someone ...


We all know that it's someone's birthday today along with Destructoid's. Someone special, who without his presence here, none of this would truly be possible. He brings joy to each and every one of our hearts and is a big part of the reason we all love this site so much.

Yes, I could go on about how much I love Destructoid. I truly do, and I've said that in so many past birthday and anniversary posts that it goes without saying. So I want to take this time to recognize someone important. Without him, Destructoid would not be complete. He was once just once of us, but now, he is something far more. And with that, I have only one thing to say:

Happy birthday, Samit Sarkar. We love you, Sports.

About Brian Szabelskione of us since 12:13 PM on 02.11.2007

Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...

Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.
