About Elandarexone of us since 2:41 PM on 03.14.2008
Hello Destructoid, my name is Elandarex (which happens to be an anagram for my real, exceptionally common name) and I am a Gamer, which I have been led to believe is an immoral, socially bankrupt wretch of a creature. Of course, this sits just fine with me given the alternative!
I came to gaming relatively late compared to most gamers I know and despite the occasional brush with Nintendo systems my main gaming past time was playing Advanced Dungeons & Dragons with my friends. Eventually I was introduced to Nights Into Dreams and it soon came to be that my first gaming console, a Saturn, was in my possession.
Still, it wasn't until Final Fantasy VII that I became totally embroiled in gaming, and ultimately, my life was signed over to gaming after spending countless hundreds of hours adventuring in Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn. After entering into the Church of Bioware I knew I should give up my long standing aspirations of becoming a Paleontologist and enter into an unholy pact with video gaming.
Since then, I have worked towards getting a job in the industry and am currently finishing up with an education in Game Programming over the next few months. Reading Destructoid for the past year has helped me maintain some semblance of sanity in the midst of many of the more psychotic gaming types at school and I felt that it was long past due that I quit my lurking and joined in with this unparalleled gaming community!
Note: I'm not too fond of this profile at the moment but am also far too lazy to make any changes to it at the moment, a common trend in my various dealings.
