Dark Souls day 1: Outrider the frequently dead.

So Iíve finally begun my masochistic journey into the hell hole of dark souls. This really is a harsh, unforgiving game that will fuck you up if you look at it funny. Or at all. Or if you look away. Or if youíre within the same zip code. I...

Hey hey all, I'm GraveRisen from Calgary, AB and I'm a gamer by many definitions.

It all started at an early age with me, starting off in a household already equipped with an intellivision (which I still have to this day), and by the time I was 5, a NES. I had my trusty game gear to play on long car rides (and subsequently commit "AA Genocide"), and when I was 7 I bought my first console with my own cash, the classic Sega Genesis.

I never really grew out of video games like my parents thought I would. I found myself in posession of a SNES shortly after the system was released and oh I spent so many hours gaming with friends, and dumped more time than I care to admit into sweet ass RPG's. The era of the N64 came around my buddies and I pulled weekly all-nighters playing perfect dark and ocarina of time speed runs.

As for non-gaming related shiz, I'm a bit of a metal head (in music taste and personality, not so much dress), though I'll listen to any classic/hard rock, metal, alternative, even some hip-hop. My sort-of "backup" favorite is Classical music. I do loves me some Chopin and Tchaikovsky.

Bitches don't know about my huge collections

Systems currently in my posession:

Intellivison, NES, SNES, N64, Gamecube, WII, Genesis, Dreamcast, GB pocket, GB colour, GBA, DS, DSi, PSP 1000, and a sweet ass gaming PC

And at last count my total games were at 192


Im in ur cabinet, playin ur games

It's so hard for me to pick a genre I play so lets just simplify things... No sports games except for mutant football, blades of steel, etc (the quirky ones). I'm a huge fan of RPG's, any FPS that tries something new (NOT HALO OMFG), RTS's like Red Alert 1 and Total Annihilation, ANY Blizzard game, and fighting games are huge for me.
