What a PC Snob thinks of a Console Gamer...

There seems to be so much animosity or paranoia form console gamers as seen in this Jim Sterling special: http://www.destructoid.com/battlefield-3-won-t-look-as-good-on-ps3-dice-says-duh--203987.phtml?s=100#comments So I decided to clea...

Steve Jobs Hates Pr0n!

http://gawker.com/5539717/ I would never have guessed that the Jobmeister wasn't a fan of the "dirty sanchez", "DP", Bukkake, "Guzzling", "salad tossing", or a "Man + Man Threesome." It is clear that he wants the IPhone and IPad apps to b...

aaarrrggg... PC hacks available, IW anti-hack Impotent

http://www.fudzilla.com/content/view/16389/1/ This has not yet been independently verified, but it is something that PC gamers knew would come. Hacks are all but impossible to stop. Punkbuster seems to do a decent job (not great), but ot...

Modding on the Console and why it won't Happen

There was an Article posted recently where a Valve developer talks about how come modding won't come to consoles. It seems that this made many console gamers mad. Why I'm not sure. Modding has always been around for the PC and most conso...

 
 
 

MW2 Delayed for PC and Maybe for this Reason

http://www.bit-tech.net/news/gaming/2009/10/05/modern-warfare-2-pc-delayed/1 I was surprised not to see this in the Destructoid PC section. Since we know that Destructoid PC team is hard at work. Maybe the delay is based on this reason: ...

 
 
 

PC and Piracy. Setting the Record Straight.

After reading another Jim Sterling Post on the Infinity Ward MW2 debacle, I really wanted to pipe up and bash it. But I couldn't. It definitely had an anti-PC tone to it, but the information (albeit limited and short) was pretty much accu...

PC vs. Console Gaming; What Do We Really Care About?

What do we really care about as PC gamers? When you see a post that has comments from PC players, they might seem different from posts by console players. So what is it we defend or get upset about? After some basic edumication I offer s...

Guide to PC Building (Why would we do this?)

COD: MW2 Multiplayer Limitations are Neat

About Lockeone of us since 11:35 PM on 10.20.2009

I am a PC gamer. I have a water cool completely custom case that I hand crafted from raw materials and PC DIY parts. The case is one of the smallest 3 120mm radiator cases that exists. I have a modest computer inside. The non-water cooling parts cost about $650 dollars and I upgrade the system about every 3 years and the video card about every 2 years.

I have been gaming all my life. I started with simple LCD portable games and we eventually got an Atari which I played the dickens out of. NES was too played until my fingers had blisters. I bought a PC in 1988 and have not looked back since (well except to play karaoke with my ex-wife). Games like Civilization, Battle of Britain, Ultima IV, Leisure Suit Larry, and Wing Commander took my heart.

Sytems I have owned:
Atari 2600
Atari 7200
Nintendo NES
X-Box
PC
Wii

I am also an avid technical scuba diver and have logged dives at 170' deep. I play paintball, softball, football, and all sorts of table tops games that include DnD and Axis and Allies. I am also in the process of writing my own table top RPG and have spent three years working on it. I have a woodworking shop and can make furniture, picture frames and the like.

I have a degree in Industrial Design. This makes me a designer of products, architectural way finding, POP displays, and user interfaces. I have also taught design at the college level.
