Oh the wonders of modern medicine

I've been working too damn long. Now, after my appointment with a hand specialist, I get to have Carpal Tunnel Release on the 25th of April. OH JOY!! Well...at least I'll be able to use my hand without it constantly going numb...bad thin...

 
 
 

Smash Bros. and the Hype from Hell

First off, I'm not going to turn this into a rant against Smash Bros. Far from it. I think the game is good. But, forgive me, I don't see it as being THAT good. Yet every gaming blog, Joystiq, Kotaku, and, yes, even our beloved Destruct...

 
 
 

New Band Worth Getting

Just a small blurb, but after being a huge fan of Stabbing Westward, I figured I'd post this. The lead singer from that band, Chris Hall, started a new band called The Dreaming after SW disbanded in 2002. Well, after too damn long, they...

 
 
 

So Long HD-DVD...I hardly knew you...

Well, it appears that after a long, hard-fought battle, Toshiba stands at the edge of the HD-DVD abyss and about the pull the format off life support. While I have both formats, I'm quite disappointed that Blu-Ray won. My biggest reason f...

 
 
 

Home Theater Update...we have AIR!

Sorry for the long delay in posts...been insanely busy with school, work, etc. My electrician has come and moved our electrical panel and given us a larger breaker, so we can handle more electricity in the house...this is a good thing, sin...

 
 
 

Mass Effect made me its bitch and I like it.

So I got Mass Effect for Christmas, and after getting completely hooked on COD4, I put the game on the back-burner until I finished the single player campaign on COD. Well, I finished that about 2 wks ago and I started Mass Effect. Holy. ...

 
 
 

As Promised...Pictures!

After days of procrastinating and grad school, here are the pictures of the basement/home-theater in progress. This is the back wall of the home theater room. The other end of the home theater. Best part: No windows. I can have t...

 
 
 

Pics Coming...I swear!

The other day I gave you guys (and girls) a hint of my coming home theater and I promised pictures. Well, for some reason or another, my time was eaten up by homework and grocery shopping (we have to eat??) I'll be taking the pictures ton...

 
 
 

Home Theater Construction Blog-a-thon

Well, it has begun. Full construction of what I hope will become the ultimate home theater for people on a really tight budget. No, I don't have pics yet. Those will be taken tonight and the uploading shall begin. My wife and I boug...

 
 
 

Thoughts on Conservatives and Games

I won't hide it. I'm a red-blooded conservative guy. I'm for God, Guns, and more ammunition. One thing, though, that other conservatives havn't learned yet, is that games are more than just toys. Case in point. Mass Effect. Earlier ...

 
 
 

HD-DVD Dead...Long live HD-DVD?!

Earlier today, Gizmodo and Engadget announced that Paramount was set to move from HD-DVD to Blu-Ray, effectively killing the format. Well, Paramount has stated thats not the case and they're sticking w/ HD-DVD. For now, at least, it doe...

 
 
 

Post-Christmas Bloat...of Gaming!!

See, this is what happens when you take 2 wks off from work...you forget to blog ANYTHING for that entire period! OMGWTFBBQ! Anyway...Christmas and Santa were VERY nice this year. Ended up getting Super Mario Galaxy (OMG!), Mass Effect (...

 
 
 

VG Cats...best. Video. EVAR

As I'm sure many of you are aware of, VG Cats is probably the best webcomic out there. If nothing else, the humor is top notch/low brow and extremely clever. Well, Mr. Ramsoomair has created probably the best fan video for Portal. Not ...

 
 
 

Post-Thanksgiving Bloat

So Thanksgiving is now behind us and the wonderland of consumerism is now upon us. Oh Happy Day! So I go to Best Buy on Friday morning like a retard to pick up a couple of Christmas gifts (and a present for myself in the form of GRAW2 f...

 
 
 

XB360 VC TBA

See? That headline was clever. No whole words. GET IT?! After being completely down for the count yesterday, I happened upon that the Fall Update for the 360 is going to go the Virtual Console route and allow for the downloading of fu...

 
 
 

VACATION!

As I write this...I'm gameless!! I'm sitting in my uncle's house in Washington DC and its driving me insane!! I have my Wii here, but can't play it. GRRRR...stupid MLB playoffs. Ok...done complaining. Yes, you can say this is a crap bl...

 
 
 

Fight Finished

Well, in between marathon study sessions of financial statements and taking the dog out for #2...Halo 3 became my b1tch. All I can say is...is that all?! The game itself was a lot of fun. I've always enjoyed the Halo games for their stor...

 
 
 

Bioware absorbed by the Borg!!

So I wake up this morning and the news that Bioware has been eaten alive by EA hit me...hard. I've always enjoyed Bioware games, and now that they're part of the EA monstrosity, I worry about their survival. Anyone remember Origin or We...

 
 
 
 
 

Halo 3 and Packaging F**k Ups

So I go on Monday to pay off my copy of Halo3. There are about 10 people camped out in front of the store and all I can think is "THANK GOD I'm not one of those guys...such men shall never be laid"...then I remember that I did the same thi...

 
 
 

GameGossip R.I.P.

A couple of years ago, I began writing game reviews and news posts for a, then, relatively popular website, GameGossip.com. The site's owner, Kyle Peschel, was also a producer at Sierra and, last I heard, was still producing TimeShift. Ti...

 
 
 

Friday, Payday, Hooker and Blow Day!

Its finally Friday!! Mother F'n YEAH!! Sucks, though, I've had almost no time to play anything this week, as my first major accounting exam is Tuesday, and, lets just say BioShock had taken pecedent over Cost-Volume-Profit Analysis. Not...

 
 
 

Wednesday suckage

Well, I've not gotten to play much more on Bioshock or Metroid, but I have been playing the crap out of Warhawk. As its the only real game I've played on the PS3, I can definitely say this was a worthwhile purchase (though my wife gave me ...

 
 
 

So many games, so little time

Well, now that I'm done working two jobs, maybe I'll find time to actually WRITE a blog. Well, as we all know, the past two weeks have provided a S**T TON of gaming goodness in the forms of Bioshock and Metroid Prime 3: Corruption. Unless...

 
 
 

Microsoft, Nintendo...and Meh

Well, I sat through all three of the conferences from the 3 big ones. My take? This years E3 provided NOTHING NEW in terms of big announcements or anything really shocking. Microsoft was kind enough to show games we'll be playing this ...

 
 
 

Coming Soon...

After reading a few articles on the "crackdown" on game violence, I'm now prompted into action and will be writing a lengthy article on the subject. I hope to have it published by the end of the week. Stay Tuned!!

Its Monday, folks, and yet another day in insurance hell. Having my 2nd Anniversary w/ my wife today and its spent in my cubicle as well as finishing my the basement on my new house. Happy Anniversary sweetheart...I'm workin' my ass off f...

 
 
 

First *working* Post

And here I thought that Niero would destroy the site completely. Lets start this by saying no other site on earth brings all of my favorite things together in a perfect blend. Viva Destructoid! That said...maybe I'm just a fanboy, but ...

 
 

About SgtBilboone of us since 8:25 AM on 12.14.2006

Lets see...I'm not that creative, so I'll just go over the basics:

I'm 33 (yeah, I'm officially old...now get off my lawn!)
I currently work for a big insurance company, but that will change in 2 years after I get my Masters and become a professional bean counter (3x the salary, b1tches!)

As for gaming...my parents bought me an NES in 1986 and they have regretted that purchase to this day. I've been through a game boy, game gear, SNES, N64, Xbox, PS1, PS2, and currently enjoying the 360, Wii, and most recently the PS3 (wife's still pissed about that last one).

I was an editor of a now defunct gaming site, but now a Dtoid Army member.
