In an attempt to combine carptoid and Cursedmas I googled Christmas Carp and discovered that's an actual thing. Link to an article explaining it, but tl;dr in certain European countries they eat Carp for Xmas and keep the fish in their bathtubs for days.


Got to hang out with my two best buds last night and play Smash. It's crazy how it feels like an entirely new game. Smash 4 felt like just Brawl continued. Ultimate made us feel like kids again.


The trailer for the next Avengers dropped. I'm leaving it in the comments so anyone who's avoiding it can do so more easily.


Can we all agree that The Game Awards hate boner for vaping was some real #Cursedmas shit?


I'm hoping one of Smash's DLC characters is Wolf Link (and possibly Midna). Smash doesn't have enough Links yet. #OneMoreLink


#Cursedmas Also write something for December's Band of Bloggers. This month's theme is Naughty or Nice.


The most emotional game collection ever.


Monster Hunter, but Zelda. Thoughts?

Former Head of Destructoid's Unofficial Book Club, Former Head of the Unofficial Book of the Month Club, and Self-Appointed Supreme High Priest of #TeamSandwich.

Super Mario Bros. 3 was the very first game (I remember) playing. Since then I have been a big fan of the medium.

I'm an avid gamer, aspiring writer, and a big fan of dark, offbeat humor. RPGs and platformers are my bread and butter, but I'm also a fair action/adventure guy too. Really there are no genres I outright dislike, just individual games. Every game genre offers something different, and I've come to love the variety. I feel the same way with comics, movies, manga, etc. Not really hung up on "genres", I just like what I like, and I don't care what genre it is.

Recently I've been trying to "break out of my shell" by getting out of my comfort zone and trying things I normally would not. Because of this I have discovered lots of new games, books, manga, shows, and movies that I now love. I do my part now to try to help others expand their horizons and get out of their own familiar space and try new things.

Destructoid has been a big help in getting me to broaden my horizons, and interact with more people outside my familiar circle of friends and acquaintances. I've come to love this site, and look forward to sharing more with you knuckleheads.
