Stupid Rumors (And Red-Hot Hyperbole)

(Note: I'm sorry about the horrible quality of the pictures. I can't figure out how to make them work right, so they're little squares of stuff rather than the horizontal-fill I wanted. BrowneyeWinkin is a very nice fellow. You should al...


The Necessary (R)Evolution Of Megaman

Evolution is necessary. Let's just get that out of the way, first and foremost. Nothing survives in this world without changing, without adapting to the times and the environment that surrounds it. Sometimes all it takes is a simple m...


Turn And Face The Strange...Ch-ch-changes.

I haven't written a Destructoid Community Blog in over two years. Two whole years. In that span of time, I've changed jobs twice. I've moved twice. I've become a father to a beautiful (and demanding) baby girl. And I have found myself ...


The Curious Conundrum Of Online Douchery

I don't know what it is about the internet that makes people show their alpha-base nature. I guess it has to do with the shell of anonymity that encapsulates us all when going online, a shield made of fake names and pictures that represe...


B-KIN Round Two is a WRAP!

Being based out of Daytona Beach, Florida, we don't expect any game-changing amount of turnout for our tournament offerings. We're not exactly known for high-level, high-attendance videogame events. But we went a long way in changing t...

NVGR: Is any amount of disrespect worth it?

Have you ever had someone who cursed you out because you have a vested interest in you own financial well-being? Has this person been someone you work closely with and trust? Has this person been your boss? If so, welcome to my day. Bla...


dTunes: Well then, allow me to retort!

I'm jealous of all of this musical love. It ain't no fun if the Jugg can't have none, know what I'm sayin'? Pardon the lack of YouTube action - posting from work sucks. Will update as I get time at home to do so (balancing 40+ hours at wo...


Nothing Is Sacred: Stereotype

(Lack of header image, again, from slow day at work. Sundays are a total waste of time when in pursuit of paycheck.) This isn't a response blog in any sense at all, but it is directly inspired by a comment that I made on kauza's cblog abo...


About Everyday Legendone of us since 1:32 PM on 08.24.2009

I am the Everyday Legend, and I am a male, 31-year old Florida native and videogame fan of the most epicurean order. I'm also the father of a very precocious (almost) three-year-old daughter, and a newborn daughter as well!

My natural state: very, very tired.

I got into gaming when I was 5, and my Aunt and Uncle had an NES that they had bought because they thought it was the coolest thing ever. As a matter of fact, they weren't too far off of the mark. I was introduced to Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt (naturally), and soon followed up with the very first Zelda. I remember the very first game I beat by myself - Megaman 2, in 1989. I was six at the time.

Shortly after that, I played Street Fighter II for the first time in a local skating rink and was hooked. Bad. Like, smack-habit bad.

I remember playing against the college kids that would come in there to hang out and chill - there was a lounge connected to the place that you had to be 18 to get in - and a lot of these guys used to come in and spend a ton of time and money on playing SFII. I learned how to play from these guys, and within a year, I had become just as good as they were. I was hanging out with people almost twice my age, and conversing with them on their level about a mutual passion - and that's where I've been ever since.

Videogames don't make up my entire life: I cook, I write, I sing, I have a full-time career in IT and am still attending college for a degree in Computer Science, then moving into a Masters in Information Systems Management. Gotta have goals.

Nothing beats a good trip to a good bar where they serve good beer and have a good selection of good tunes. Also, chilled Junmai Ginjo (unfiltered) sake is the nectar of the gods, in case you weren't aware. Of course, those trips are very rare these days, because there is always another diaper to change, and leaving your kid at home in the crib is never an option if you want to be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

Oh, and I really, really love sushi. I can put away amounts of that stuff that some may label as borderline genocidal. I put species of fish on the endangered list singlehandedly. I'm not ashamed. It's their own fault for being born so damn delicious.
