About AfroWalrus One of us since 9:29 PM on 07.23.2009
Hello, I am a walrus with an afro. Pleased to meet you.
I'm a cheapo gamer. I won't buy a game unless I'm absolutely sure that I'll get my money's worth, or it's free. My laptop is terrible for gaming, and I'm hoping to one day own a super-gaming computer that will take over the world unless I'm playing video games on it.
Consoles: PS2, Xbox 360, laptop
Games I Enjoy:
Shadow of the Colossus
Metal Gear Solid 1+2+3=6(?)
Rainbow 6 Vegas
World of Gooooo
Final Fantasy 6/3
Team Fortress 2
