Sit straight, son.

I am by no means a back expert. This is just my personal experience with this issue. I'm sure your mom used to see you in front of the tv and kept telling you to sit straight. The truth is, getting comfortable while playing video games i...

 
 
 

A minute with Nic - #1

[Reading a recent musing made me want to write this update. Since I never have enough substance to make a whole blog, why not slap a couple of subjects together?] Oh hai there. Hi, fellow dtoiders, have a seat while we spend some persona...

My setup : let me show you them.

I've seen so many great setups, I thought I'd share mine. I finally moved in a place that's not basically a room and a bathroom. Moving up feels good, man. I can also set up a good gaming haven. Let me show you my living room. Looks cozy...

 
 
 

The Great Escape: Outside

Boredom. Being somewhat of a loner, I get plenty of it. My usual entertainment consists of playing games. Pretty simple right? I escape my boredom, be it single player or with friends. It has always worked before and surely will continue li...

 
 
 

A "Tales of" fan retrospective

Ahh, the Tales series. I remember the journeys, the excitements, the various platforms it made me buy. A tales games on a console I don't have is not conceivable. I will buy the console for this game alone. It all goes back to my Gamecub...

 
 
 

A holiday experiment

Hi, fellow readers. Happy new year to you all. I came back from a two weeks vacation away from the interwebz. I went to spend the holidays with my family in the middle of nowhere, no computers, no internet. I gotta tell you, it certainly re...

 
 
 

Take care of your controllers.

Something that always bothered me throughout the years, is how some of my friends destroyed their controllers overtime. I would go to a friend's house, we'd sat down to play some games, take the second controller : "Wait, the joystick is ...

About Nic128one of us since 8:54 AM on 02.27.2009

Hi all, introductry post. (Side blog edition)

I'm Nic128, 25 years old, gamer since 1991. Started with a SNES and worked my way through the generations. I got a NES after my SNES though, well, whatever.

I discovered this community a few years ago. I then realized, damn, there are civilized people that love and talk about video games. Awesome.

Here's what I currently own (Systems : History of purchases) :
- Gamecube
- PS2
- DS Lite
- PSP 2000
- Wii
- PS3
- Snes
- N64
- 3DS

Yes, I bought a Snes and N64 after my PS3. You know, nostalgia.

Games I love/loved the most :
1. Zelda : Ocarina of Time
2. Zelda : Twilight Princess
3. Tales of Symphonia
4. Golden Sun (1 and 2)
5. Zelda : Wind Waker
6. God of war
7. Tales of Vesperia
8. Resident Evil 3
9. Zelda : Majora's Mask
10. Banjo-Kazooie

I suck at anything FPS, RTS, MMO. Unless I'm playing with friends, I don't play competitive games. I get angry when I lose against better players.

Besides games, I love Fullmetal Alchemist, Table tennis...

And that's it.
