Destructoids (3rd?) annual Holiday Community Gift Exchange


[Bump] - firstly I'd like to say hello to all you sexy beasts out there. I'm bumping the article to raise awarness of the the gift exchange before the cut off time. That way anyone who would like to participate or planned to has a chance to do so. Everyone is welcome to participate and I wish you all the best this Holiday Season 

In my experience for the past 2 years there has been a Secret Santa here at Destructoid. The first one I joined was held by OpiumHerz if I’m not mistaken and the second held by Luna sy (much love to them both and all the other People gone by).  That said I would like to continue this trend of community gift exchanging and effectively host the Secret Santa for this year. It is somewhat late in the game (as well as sudden but) I feel but with November being such a busy month for me I hadn’t been able to give this much thought until now. That said I think most people will still receive their object before or on Christmas, and if it’s a little after I’m sure most people here wouldn’t mind.


Like last year this will run through Elfster:  https://www.elfster.com/exchange/view/22290219/5907e3/

Elfster from my understanding handles the pairing process so it will truly be random. If you don’t have an account just sign up (it’s free) and make your wish list. The sign up ends December 17th at which point you’ll be given your names for the exchange (by Elfster). The limit is $20 but if you happen to be feeling especially generous this time of year you can exceed that, just remember that your generosity won’t necessarily be reciprocate (read: if you spend more than 20 do it out of the kindness of your heart expecting nothing in return for your generosity).


Last year my d-toider was Ooktar and I gifted him a copy of space dandy (season 1 I believe). Solor Pony Django was my gifter and gave me a copy of The Last Door Collector’s edition.  It was fun and I do hope you guys will participate this year as well. 


And remember when you get your gift show some love to your fellow d-toider with a QP or should you be especially moved a blog.

About Agent9one of us since 12:45 PM on 04.13.2010

Who is Agent9? The not so secret agent of the destructoid community.

A Few things about me

- I'm almost finished with my degree in computer science and I plan on going into independent development and freelancing once I'm done.

- I can be very cynical, but I do try to be positive or curb my negativity. In spite of this I'm actually very jovial in person and I don't get mad often. I would dare say I'm quite happy, even when things seem bleak. I simply don't like industry Bullshit and I'm not one to stand for it, even if it's a game I like.

- I host a series annually called 31 Days where I post 1 horror related or themed video game song a day for the month of october. During this time I also provide keys for games (free of course) to any reader observant enough to find them.

- I've been a member of destructoid since 2010, and a lurker long before then. As such I've seen many people both come and go. Such is the natural order of things.

- I enjoy Art and draw in my spare time

- I also enjoy theatre and films. I especially like Horror movies (both good and bad ones).

- I go camping once or twice a year. I would go out more but my allergies tend to get in the way.

- I don't drink, which may be a surprise to some. I might make a joke or two about it but I stay away from alcohol for my own personal reasons, though you can feel free to drink a pint on my behalf any time you'd like.

This is a commission I had done for me by Inquisitive Ravenclaw. You should check out his site if you like the following piece

I also got a musical piece made for me by the incredible Alphadeus. A little history behind this:

My musical piece came as part of the Songs for Gamers album DLC pack 02. Alphadeus has been making songs for the members of the destructoid community for years already. This past year he opened submissions and I applied. For my meagre efforts I received this lovely piece:

You can find him on youtube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFs2UhJYPVITYWCiqMk-z3w

He also has other venues listed on his profile here, take a look if you are so inclined:

The community is full of people with all kinds of talent and I'm very pleased to be a part of it along with all of you (yes, you too fair reader).
