Who finds Mileena sexy, anyway?

Recent comments made by Howard Stern, an American radio host and prominent ‘shock jock‘, provoked anger in me. I realise how idiotic that sounds -- ’shock jocks’, after all, are apparently dedicated to provoking anger and resentment. Howeve...

 
 
 
 

Escapism

For five days of the week, I go to school. There, I study with quiet dedication, stopping occasionally to participate in some light-hearted banter. After school, I go home. I haunt the internet and I play games. At some point, I realise tha...

 
 
 
 
 

David Cage -- revolutionary?

David Cage is, undoubtedly, a very talented man. A very talented man with a clear vision -- a vision which he pursues with each game he releases. However, David Cage’s visions jar with the ideas of those who kickstarted the gaming industry ...

 
 
 
 
 

The Quiet One

I’ve been revisiting the floating wreck of the space-faring USG Ishimura this week. I discovered my neglected copy of Dead Space lurking around in my bedroom looking up at me with metaphorical puppy-dog eyes and a thick coat of dust on its ...

 
 
 
 

Point Lookout: DLC done well

A few days ago, my arguments for and against the very existence of DLC crept into the Community Blogs. In this post, I dismissed Dead Space 2’s ‘Severed’ DLC -- a bold move for someone who hasn’t yet experienced said additional content. How...

 
 
 
 
 
 

An Apologetic Introduction

One thing I know about Destructoid from careful outside observation is that the Community Blogs are regularly swamped by new users introducing themselves and attempting to integrate with the community. I am such a user, and I‘m here to intr...

 
 

About Lord Death of Murder Mountainone of us since 2:06 PM on 03.18.2011

I’m Oran, a fifteen year-old gamer and Scottish native. I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember and my love for the pastime has grown exponentially (HELL YEAH) since early childhood, back when I was allowed to crap in my pants and I wasn‘t mocked for my love of the Pokémon games. The golden days.

I’m a thoroughly ‘modern’ gamer, and I’m a little ashamed of that. I am most comfortable with games from this generation and the previous, but I’ve played games from past generations, such as Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64 and a few of the Castlevania games.

I discovered Destructoid after purchasing Deadly Premonition, the cover of which boasts a 10/10 rating from Jim Sterling. I visited the website to check out the review, and accidentally stumbled upon the Community Blogs. Previously, I had been experimenting with GameSpot’s blogging feature but I quickly tired of that and, thusly, the Community Blogs presented a perfect alternative.

I’m hoping to break into gaemz jarnalizm. I feel I have a serviceable command of the English language and I realise that I have plenty of time to hone my mad skillz, blud. I follow the gaming industry with avid interest and I have the ability to formulate convincing arguments; arguments which I take care to support with fact. I’m going to stop whoring myself out now, but if you know of anywhere a budding writer can test his skills -- other than Destructoid itself, of course -- then please let me know. I will love you eternally.
