Gaming and Emotion: Dem Feels

When I first started playing video games, it was just a way for me to pass the time, and enjoy myself. As I grew older it became more than that, I started falling in love with characters, being a part of amazing, well written stories, and i...

 
 
 

Collecting: A Passion

Hello Destructoid, It's been quite a while since my last blog. Life took control for the most part, being busy with work and other side projects made it hard to get a chance to blog. This is something I've been wanting to write for a while...

 
 
 

Aaamaazing: Did that just happen?!

This month's monthly musing has really given me a lot of food for thought. There are lot of games I've played over the years that I could say have truly and definitively taken my breath away. OgreBattle 64, for instance, with it's unique ga...

 
 
 

What does being a gamer mean to you?

I don't know why, but this question has been sitting in my head for the last week. All I could do was think and think and think about it. What does being a gamer mean to me? Why? Even as I sit here typing this blog, I ponder it over and o...

New PC... finally!

So, after god knows how many years of my old AM2 chipset and 1.2GHZ processor (don't get me wrong, this thing was pretty reliable and served me well over the years), I finally upgraded my system today.. AMD X4 965, runs at 3.4GHz stock, 4 ...

 
 
 

What's your Inspiration?

Inspiration. Something that one almost always finds inadvertently. You can't go looking for it, it always finds you. Being in this world for 21 years has left me with many sources of inspiration, but as new inspiration comes, you tend to fo...

 
 
 

What's your Gear Score?

World of Warcraft I've played since Day 1, and I've always enjoyed the game. Maybe not all the players who I have to deal with on a weekly basis, but I really enjoy the lore, and some of the raids that have been released throughout the lif...

Starcraft II, and some other stuff!

So the Starcraft II Beta came back up yesterday.. I've got mixed feelings. I love the game, don't get me wrong, the improved graphics, and the balance is a little bit better as well. I'm also very excited for the new map editor, playing w...

 
 
 

E3 Thoughts

With all the buzz about E3 (come on, who isn't excited haha), I went and took a peek at a few things, courtesy of the E3 channel on youtube, which was streaming it live. To be honest, I was kinda disappointed with the Nintendo announcement...

About Grimstarone of us since 5:22 AM on 06.12.2010

Hey everyone, I'm Grimstar, and I'm a huge nerd. I was introduced to the site by my good friend Funktastic, and he has said alot of good things about it, so I wanted to come and see it for myself.

I'm a huge anime, gaming, and DnD fan. The types of games I play are varied, and I like to mix it up, but hands down I'm a huge RPG fan. I love playing games that feel like reading a story, I love to get involved personally in the game, and most RPG's for me are a great experience.

I also like to game on anything I have (not a collector or anything, but I do have quite a few consoles), including my SNES, N64, PS3, PC, etc. The feeling of nostalgia I get from playing something like Super Soccer is just too awesome of a feeling to pass up.

As far as my favorite games/series', there's a lot that comes to mind but I'll just put down a few of my all time favorites: Final Fantasy, Fire Emblem, Legend of Zelda, Golden Sun, Shin Megami Tensei, Persona, Ogrebattle 64, Metal Gear Solid, the Tales series, and Star Ocean. Some of my favorite animes include Code Geass, Familiar of Zero, Full Metal Alchemist, Escaflowne, and Gurann Lagann. Anyway, enough rambling. I look forward to chatting with everyone, and thanks for reading!
