About



Oh, hi there. Didnít see you enter. Anyways, welcome to my humble little blog. For those of you not familiar with who I am, the nameís Brian. Iím 24 years old and hail from Findlay, Ohio. I work at the local newspaper here as a copy editor, putting my four long years of college to actual use. Kind of. I think.

For those of you who might recognize me from elsewhere, I work as Assistant Gaming Editor over at Blogcritics Gaming and as Features Editor over at Tomopop. It's a lot of work, but it's worth it because I get to do a lot of cool shit with a lot of cool people.

I've been gaming since the relatively young age of around 3 and I've played plenty of games, both good and bad. I'm continuously expanding my gaming collection, which has become more of an archive in recent years as I'm focusing on collecting older, less well-known titles. You'd honestly be surprised on what people are missing out on in bargain bins...



Other than gaming, I love anime, manga, sports, movies, TV, and a whole lot more. I also happen to have something of a legendary love for Cammy, to the point that I am the site's unofficial official Cammy fanboy. And yes, I do play as her in Street Fighter and do so quite well, too.

Also, I am Chad Concelmo's B.F.F., my prize for coming in first in The Great Retro Quiz .18 - ActRaiser. Accept no substitutes. Not even Aerox.

Many of you probably know by now that I play Team Fortress 2. Most of my time is spent on 2fort2furious, which I've been a part of for about a year and a half now. There's a lot of custom additions to the server, but one of the most interesting ones happens to be a little something called the goomba stomp:



Originally on our server and later added to some other servers who made a similar code, the goomba stomp is pretty simple: land on an opponent's head from a certain height and it kills them. It's not easy to do because it requires you to hit the opposing player right on top of his head most times and missing a goomba not only hurts you badly, but it puts you right in the way of the guy you just tried to stomp.

Most veteran players on 2f2f have between 50 and 200. I myself have just over 100 to my name.

Then there's inzo. As of today, he's got over 2800 such goomba stomps, more than 5 times the second person on the list.

No, that's not a typo. In fact, he does it enough that he's been able to put together a short video of a week in his life on the server (both on the main and prophunt servers) showing off some of his stomps. And some of them are mindblowing. Check it out and let me know what you guys think:



BONUS: I also happen to be one of his victims. See if you can spot me.
