Hello! Iīve been reading Dtoid for a while, but just recently I decided to join this amazing group!
A bit about myself... My name is Eduardo, Iīm 28, Brazilian and living in Rio de Janeiro right now. I have a degree in Medicine and Iīm taking Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging as my specialty.
I joined the gaming world when my dad gave me an Atari 2600 plus Pac-Man, River Raid and Pitfall. Well, after 20 years and 7 consoles later (Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Mega Drive, N64, PSone and PS2) Iīm still playing those "children toys" ;)
This Christmas Santa is bringing me a Wii plus a bunch of games, even Gamecube ones!
And no, I donīt think the PC is a gaming machine at all (you can flame me as much as you want, Crysis fanboys!)

I must thanks Gametrailers for making me reach this wonderful blog (that interview with the guys from Kotaku, Destructoid and Joystiq) and recently the RetroforceGO! podcast, without a doubt the best feature here! Dyson, Chad, Topher and Colette are awesome!
Iīve already made a few posts, but never got the time to make a proper intro. Well, most of the stuff I was going to say is already written on my profile, so feel free to take a peek!
