When I young I had delusions of being a rock star. One of the bands that I built my foundation on was the Smashing Pumpkins. I was fascinated by their sound, which didn’t sound like anything else out at the time. I connected with the lyrics on a deep emotional level. I was a teenager and it felt like Billy Corgan was talking to me and for me.
Throughout my life I have been a gamer. My first video game system was the Atari 2600, which belonged to my father. I remember playing River Raid for hours. Since then i have ebbed and flowed on the amount of games that I play but in 2011 I was in a ebb period, if you will. On top of being a gamer, I have always loved comic books as well. In 2011 these two passions converged in one game X-Men: Destiny. Sure there has been comic book video games before, many of which i had played and enjoyed. This game felt different. This was to be a role playing game set in the X-Men Universe. I loved role playing games like Final Fantasy and Lost Odyssey and I loved X-Men. This was going to be a big big win for me.
Finally one day what i had been waiting for. The first images were released and this is what it showed:
I decided to create this blog as an act of creativity. I wrote a guest post on my wife’s blog and I enjoyed the process so much that i decided i wanted to try it myself. I intend to share news and reviews of all things that Nevin Rocks! If i enjoy it or i am interested in it, I will post it here.
