All About NeoJedi
Once I got that text blogging thing down, I was wondering if I should do video blogs. I had seen The Wesker and EightBitWarrior's videos and had thoroughly enjoyed them, but I was afraid to do one myself. Let's just say that I'm not much of a looker, which made me weary about putting my mug in front of a camera for the world to see.
Finally, I mustered up my courage and decided to give it a shot. So, on May 27, 2006, I posted my very first video blog on GameSpot. The result? A nervous little man talking about the Surrounding Force union (remember unions?), thoughts about Guitar Hero (the first one), Tournament TV (remember that?), my clan in Unreal Tournament 2004 (best online multiplayer shooter of all time) and the WWE. It still boggles my mind that the video got 587 views, especially with such bad video quality.
Nonetheless, here it is in all it's glory (or lack thereof).
Join me tomorrow for part 3, where I take a look at the videos that got the most views here on GameSpot.
This Friday, August 17, 2012, will mark my tenth year as a member of the GameSpot community. Wow. Ten years. It's been a long time and one hell of a wild ride, huh?
You guys are probably wondering how I came to join this wonderful website. Well, ladies and gentlemen, it's quite easy. I was looking for information on a video game (I don't remember which one) on the interwebs and came across a little website called GameSpot. After I had found the information I was looking for, I continued browsing on the site and discovered a plethora of awesome stuff, including videos, news, reviews, and much, much more. That's when I decided to make GameSpot my one (and, for a long time, only) stop for video game information.
Things sure have changed around here since 2002. Of course, the website looks nothing like it did 10 years ago. Without sounding as if I'm sucking up here (too late, I know), but this is one of the nicest looking video game websites on the web today. The staff has changed, again, obviously. Although I don't hang around here as often as I used to, I still enjoy the reviews from folks like Kevin Van Ord, Chris Watters and Carolyn Petit. I've always had a great rapport with the marvelous Justin Calvert and enjoy the always hilarious Escape From Mount Stupid episodes by the one and only Danny O'Dwyer.
Yeah, I don't write a blog a day like I used to, mainly because of lack of time and, I'll admit, interest, but I am always lurking in the shadows, reading your blogs, checking out staff reviews and videos, and so on. With this 10 year anniversary, I thought I'd look back at some moments that marked my time here at GameSpot and share them with all you wonderful people out there.
Let's start from the beginning, shall we? How about the very first blog I ever wrote. This was on September 5, 2004 and would mark the beginning of a very long streak. It's certainly not the longest nor the most interesting, but it was a start. I would go on to write 1071 blogs, touching on various subject matters such as video games, wrestling, movies, music and, even sometimes, death. I truly enjoyed writing them each day and, of course, reading your comments along the way (although, for some reason, I can't see them anymore).
Tomorrow, I'll look back on my very first video blog which would lead to the birth of a little something I would go on to call DBoy's Den.
Don't believe that? You should follow me on Twitter and you'd believe me then. @DBoyDen is my username. Come join the fun!
And yeah, I haven't blogged as much as I said I would. Busy life, busy times. Will try to remedy that in the upcoming weeks, but as I said, I already talk a whole hell of a lot on Twitter and the United Gamedom podcast, that I don't have much to say when I come on here.
Diablo III? Hell yeah. Max Payne 3? Yes please!
Once again, follow me on Twitter @DBoyDen and also the United Gamedom podcast that I'm a part of @UnitedGamedom. Hope to see you guys soon!

Yep... it's coming back.
I was drunk for my 38th birthday. Here's the result.
Seems like it was about time for one of these babies. Quite long, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.
