    Hello Destructoid

    My name is Brandon. I'm a longtime reader of Destructoid, and I felt like now was as good a time as ever to join the community. I'm 26 years old, and I work a pretty mundane job. When I'm not doing that, I write, usually about video games.

    My primary platforms of choice these days are my PC and 3DS. I have access to all of the major systems, though outside of those two, my SNES still gets the most love. I never really got into a lot of Western-developed games, and my heart still lies with Japan. I still love shmups and JRPGs. Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, and Super Metroid are still my favorite video games of all time.

    Outside of gaming, I'm a huge music nerd. I got into punk rock in high school, and since then ended up on this long journey of musical discovery. I play guitar, mostly just for myself. I don't exactly have the free time to start a band, otherwise something like My Bloody Valentine or Explosions in the Sky would be right up my alley.

    It's rare that I really dig into forums, but the Destructoid community always felt so close knit compared to a lot of the others, so I'm hoping I can find a comfy place to hang out here.

    Based on an album title it seems.

    Welcome Brandon! What sort of things have you written about?

    I don't know about "comfy", but it's definitely a place to hang out.

    Welcome!

    Did you ever like Super Mario RPG? That was my number one favorite SNES game of all time.

    Oh god, I leave this thread alone and comments show up!

    As for some of the stuff I've written about, I have a tendency to write about weird, existential crises I have while playing certain games. I have a blog that I maintain far too infrequently at http://minusworlds.wordpress.com

    I wrote a couple thousand words about my experience with Dark Souls thus far a couple days ago. I'm going to crosspost some of the better entries to the community blogs here to give them a little better exposure.

    Super Mario RPG is one of my favorites. I haven't played it in a long time, but it is a game I have fond memories of. I just started Radiant Historia last night, so I'm pretty excited to dig into that a bit further. I've gotta make as much headway in that as I can before Persona 4 Golden comes out next week.

    That image is horrifying, btw. Now I feel right at home.

    Awesome man.

    Yea I can't wait for Persona 4 Golden to come out too. I spent way way too much time playing the PS2 Version and I can't wait to do it all over again.
