Go check out Destructoid's collectible toy culture blog, which I proudly run:
Here is a list of things you should know about me:
I'm a female game/toy blogger living in New Orleans.
The NES is my favorite system of all time, closely followed by the PS2.
My DS is more or less glued to my person.
I can't resist playing Contra. Ever.
I think toys are the best solution to not wanting to grow up, and I have an always-growing collection of them, which is why I started Tomopop.
I require sushi for living.
I'm hopelessly addicted to Japanese dramas and skinny Japanese boys with awful hair.
I love wandering around used bookstores for hours.
I think about throwing rocks at people a lot.
I replay The Legend of Zelda about 5 times a year.
I read a lot.
I can't live without music.
This Pedro guy is pretty good.

And these RetroforceGo! people aren't so bad.
Actually, the people I work with are pretty freaking awesome in general.
Sometimes I put on costumes, too.
Come find me on:
Wii: My friend code is too long to remember
I have a really cool life. Case in point: last night, I recorded RetroforceGo!, which was comprised of Topher, Stella and myself talking about Japanese rhythm games for two hours. Niero heard the majority of my end of the conversation and was inspired (as was I when I was done -- I wanted to play every game we had talked about!) When I signed off, there were stacks of rhythm games on the coffeetable. Unfortunately, we didn't get past the first one we played (to be continued tonight!), but it was worth it, because I discovered a totally awesome PS2 game I had never played before.
That game is Technictix, which you can see in action here. It's very simply: you move your character around on a board, stand in the middle of a ring, and push a button when the inner ring meets the outer ring in time with the music. PURE ADDICTION. We played until 4 am. I'm wiped today but it was totally worth it. It was in Japanese and English, with the menus mainly in the latter so it is very easy to navigate. Each time you complete a level successfully, you unlock a new character to play.
Track it down if you like rhythm games, it was totally fun. I'm going back to sleep now =p
