Greetings. I am Stupid Name Guy, or Brandon, if you wish. Brandon is not a particularly stupid name, but what is my name referring to? That is a mystery. . . not a particularly interesting one. XD
I am just a chubby young man who likes video games and Destructoid, particularly it's community, which does not seem to be comprised by mostly trolls or sociopaths, which is a wonderful thing. I am currently playing through Digital Devil Saga, Skyrim.
Also, the "Fresh Meat" image reminds me of Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden. I don't know why, it just does.
My favorites games. . . I dunno. It's really hard to think about. Usually when that topic comes to mind it is LoZ: Majora's Mask. It's definitely one of Nintendo's strongest creative efforts, at least to me. Baten Kaitos: Eternal Wings and the Lost Ocean might be a good contender as well; it's such a beautiful game, so much so the voice acting doesn't really bother me. To be honest, I kinda like it. The voices are at their worst in the opening cutscene, after that, you are pretty much in the clear. Importing the official soundtrack was worth it to me, especially as someone who wants to start collecting CD's.
I haven't been watching TV as much as I used to, at least not as consistently. These days I am either watching Cartoon Network, The Daily Show or The Colbert Report, or Jeopardy. Well, the Food Network too, my avatar should be a giveaway.
Speaking of Jon Stewart, I am reading America: The Book currently, and it is absolutely glorious. Humor books are always the way to go for me.
My music tastes are very mixed; video game music, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, quite a bit of rap music as well. As I type this I am listening to the Cowboy Bebop soundtrack. Fantaaaastic. XD
Well, to be fair most places in other countries are unoriginally named, it's just they were unoriginally named like a thousand years ago, and we obviously use different languages or the same language differently now so it doesn't show as much. I think if you look at a lot of Anglo-Saxon place names, for example, it's basically just all 'on river', or 'something-hill'.
