My Challenge: An abundance of Gaming

Its that time of the year again. The universities are all but becoming devoid of life as the students return to their ‘real’ homes, the workers are looking forward to a few weeks of time away from their mind-crushing nine-to-five schedules...


An Introduction: because I can. And suppose I should

Let me tell you a little story about my life... It goes back to when I was ten years old; an intense time for any small child, as its that period where the top of your mind is filled with worrying about how to be popular within the harsh s...


About Reisenone of us since 1:38 PM on 12.13.2008

I'll sort out an avatar once imageshack starts playing nice.

About me:
I like videogames.

I'm from Britain: that's that scraggy island a bit to the right of America where everyone drinks tea and calls eachother a cunt.

I'm also a student: that's British for leech on society stealing money from the government in order to accomodate three free years of easy living! Bonus points for being a student of Creative Writing!!!

I'm not actually as cynical as I made myself out to be in the last two points. I actually like some aspects of this grand country I live in. Regardless that this really just accounts to familiarity, some of the people being quite pleasant, channel 4 and the when I import something from a foreign country and feeling like the lower cost means i've beaten the system.

I own all three videogame consoles, but have no idea when it comes to PC's.

I've been gaming since I was about five years old; I could either play with Super Mario Bros. on the NES or a shiny new Lego Castle. I feel I made the right choice.

I also (to whom applicable) had a geeky best friend throughout high school who got popular and ditched me.

I cried at both the end of Metal Gear Solid 3 and 4.

I listen to and love all three podcasts!

When compulsively cleaning the house, I listen to the Final Fantasy VI Piano Collections.

The Lens of Truth can see through Snake's Stealth camouflage, no matter what anyone may tell you.

I sold my 360 to my brother to buy a PS3, because I didn't want to play games where the only thing on my mind was the next achivement. Ironically now the main reason i'm going back to Fallout 3 is because of the trophy patch. I sometimes wonder, then start to loathe what i've become.

I've been checking Destructoid for a while now, before finally getting off my arse and deciding to blog on here. Hopefully i'tll be a regular thing.

My girlfriend also just joined to start blogging on here. She's a nice person, regardless that her opinions on Assassins Creed are just wrong.

We both brought a 360 at the same time, and they both red ringed at the same time. I guess that means we're synchronised.

And finally, I look forward to getting involved in the community here blogging my snarky English arse off!
