    Hey.

    What's up everyone. Known about Destructoid for a while but never really thought to join the forums. Anyway I'm 30 years old from Australia and love me some games. Primarily PC but I recently fell down the Sony hole as well. I'm not sure what I would consider my favourite game genre, but a few of my game loves over the years have been Doom, Metroid, Warcraft, Street Fighter, and Bomberman. I have a man crush Edmund McMillen, and absolutely love The Binding of Isaac (note the av).

    Here's a picture of my Isaac's.

    Sony's got a big hole.

    ...and welcome!

    What sort of books, movies and TV you into?

    I don't read many books nowadays, I like to get all my fiction from games. But I do listen to audio books and a lot of podcasts. Last audio book I listened to was the Stephen Fry autobiography. Most of my reading comes from random curiosity which ends up in massive Wikipedia chains. I work at a supermarket on night shift so it gives me plenty of time to listen to stuff.

    As for tv I'd say South park, Futurama, Trek, anything by Penn & Teller. Waiting for breaking bad to finish so I can marathon watch through the entire series.

    It started with a Vita, which was followed by PSN +, and then a 500gb PS3. I figured since it's unlikely the PS4 is going to be backwards compatible I might as well pick one up and play all the games I wanted to, now that most of them are cheap.

    Can't wait for Mew-Genics but trying not to get too excited and end up overhyping the game. I'm most definitely hanging for Rebirth more.

    You're doing it right! That's the way do to it, I only got a PS3 last year as well.

    Okay, I'll leave

    Just to be clear, my avatar is supposed to be bad.

    Only thing about yours is that it isn't 200x200px. Other than that it's fine.

    Transparency is by no means a necessity; lots of avatars look good with a coloured background. If the image's background is white, though, you might as well set it to transparent. To do otherwise is just PURE LAZINESS. You know who your are.

    Mew-Genics seems really different, but also really awesome. Did you by chance listen to the Sup Holmes with Ed on it? (We're on a first name basis) He talks about it quite a bit as well as Rebirth.

    I love your Issacs btw, they are sooooo niiiiiiice.

    Thanks, I love my Isaac's too. They're expensive but very well made, so I don't mind chipping in the extra for good quality collectibles. Got a Husk on the way too. And I'm hoping there will be some horsemen to add to the collection in the future. Plus I only spent $3 on Isaac and it's my most played game on Steam by a huge margin. And yeah I did hear the podcast. That's actually what reignited my interest in Destructoid and brought me here.

    Oh nice! That would be awesome if they had figures for all of the boss type enemies in that game. TBoI is also my most played game on Steam by far.
