About
I love all genres but 2D platformers will always be my favorite. A lot of great new games have come out in the recent times, but I honestly don't believe anything will ever top the SNES years. I grew up a loyal Nintendo fanboy, but (like many) realized the error of my ways too late with the passing of the Dreamcast. I miss the days when gaming was for geeks only, and anxiusly await (with both hope and dread) for the next generation of gaming...

I don't normally post too many blogs because I'm way to busy but this needs to be shared. While video games are my biggest hobby, motorcycling is a close second, and as such I frequent a number of biker communities in addition to Destructoid. Well today the biker world has been set ablaze by perhaps the biggest tool of all time.

Found in a Suzuki forum, a seemingly normal help thread starts off innocently enough. Some idiot dumped two bottles of NOS fuel additive into his bike without reading the instructions and it died. Yes, its a groan worthy mistake (you would normally only add a few ounces as its almost pure kerosene) but here is the real kicker. After about 2 pages of discussion the OP realizes that he didn't add two bottles of NOS fuel additive, he added two bottles of NOS energy drink. The fact that it had nutrition facts and the giant words "energy drink" on the bottles didn't stop him. My god. Next time he should use red bull and fly himself home...

I didn't see this posted anywhere here yet, but in case you missed the news this morning, Circuit City just announced it will be closing all 567 remaining stores and liquidating their assets. Personally, I never really cared for the store, primarily because I thought their customer service sucked really bad. However it is sad news that one of the largest video game retailers will be gone for good. You can read more about it here. Will any of you miss ol' big red? Also, deals!

How much I love being hugged by you
Sometimes when I've fallen
Scraped my knee and bruised my pride
In the distance you'll be calling
And running' by my side
















Great news this weekend, the awesome folks at Starmen.net have finally finished all the hacking for their fan translation of Mother 3. All that is left is some vigorous testing, and hopefully we'll actually get to play the thing in all it's English glory in the next month or two. You can head over to their blog for the latest details, as well as sign up to be notified when the patch is actually released. I don't know about you guys, but I am soooooooooooooooo excited to play this game!










I don't know about you, but Left4Dead is number one game on my most anticipated list for the rest of this year. So why not save a couple bucks on what could be the best game of 2008? Right now Amazon is taking preorders for the Windows version for only $39.99 (10 bucks off). Personally, I'll be preloading this baby on steam but if you can stand to wait an extra day or two then this is a pretty solid deal.
