LONG BLOG

I promise that I do know about games.

   0
So, for those who don't know, my name is Neal and I've been a member of the site for several years now. I usually just comment on front page stories and am rather active in the forums. I've never really written a blog before. However, when I read the topic of the next "Blogger's Wanted", I decided to give it a shot. The topic is East vs West, and we have to choose one side or the other. Having once written a paper in college about RPGs and the difference between Eastern and Western versions, I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity to test out the blogging waters.

Unfortunately, I keep coming upon the same problems that I had whenever I tried writing anything back in school (including said RPG paper): I'm just too damned easily distracted. So, instead of writing that blog, I think I'll write this one. It seems to be going much better since, as I write this, I've been distracted far fewer times. Perhaps the problem is that I'm treating the other more academically. There I am, trying to make a good first impression while simultaneously attempting to not only contribute to the Destructoid community, but to also prove that I know what I'm talking about. And I do know what I'm talking about. The problem is that whenever I attempt to put my opinions and/or knowledge of video games on to paper (virtual or literal), I end up reading like some gaming fanboy trying too hard to show off his e-peen by trying (unsuccessfully) to sound more intelligent than the next guy. At least, that's how I read it. But like I said, I do know what I'm talking about. I promise.


So I'll write this blog instead, introducing myself to the blogging space and maybe the other will happen more naturally. Or maybe it won't. Who knows?

My name is Neal. I live in Austin, TX and am 27. I am a graduate of the University of Texas (Hook 'em Horns). As my handle says, I am a dj, but it's pretty much just a hobby. I've been gaming since my parents gave me my two older sisters Atari 2600 with Frogger, Pong, and Days of Thunder. I've been hooked since. The only current generation system I lack ownership of is an Xbox 360 (hopefully that will change before the end of the year). It is my career goal to eventually have a real job in the gaming industry (read: not retail or quality assurance).

Oh yeah, I also recently got engaged to my girlfriend of the last three and a half years.


So that's me in a nutshell. I'm really hoping that this will free up my mind to writing in general. It's so much easier when I can just write about whatever comes to my head and not try to pigeonhole it to just one topic. Maybe the East vs. West blog won't happen. I hope it will, but I won't be upset if it doesn't. Perhaps it was just too soon to try something like that. I think I'll stick to some more like these for the time being. But I promise I'll try to keep them gaming related. Thanks for understanding.

About djnealbone of us since 12:51 PM on 08.19.2009

Nerd. Dork. Geek. Singer. Gamer. DJ. Husband. I'm lots of things.

I've lived 100% of my life in Texas. That year and a half in Oklahoma don't count because, well, it was Oklahoma.

When I'm not working or spending time with the wife, then I'm gaming. I love all types of games except sports games. I especially love RPGs and action games. I've even recently gotten into Dungeons and Dragons, so now my nerditude is complete!
