About




I am the Everyday Legend, and I am a male, 31-year old Florida native and videogame fan of the most epicurean order. I'm also the father of a very precocious (almost) three-year-old daughter, and a newborn daughter as well!

My natural state: very, very tired.

I got into gaming when I was 5, and my Aunt and Uncle had an NES that they had bought because they thought it was the coolest thing ever. As a matter of fact, they weren't too far off of the mark. I was introduced to Super Mario Bros. and Duck Hunt (naturally), and soon followed up with the very first Zelda. I remember the very first game I beat by myself - Megaman 2, in 1989. I was six at the time.

Shortly after that, I played Street Fighter II for the first time in a local skating rink and was hooked. Bad. Like, smack-habit bad.

I remember playing against the college kids that would come in there to hang out and chill - there was a lounge connected to the place that you had to be 18 to get in - and a lot of these guys used to come in and spend a ton of time and money on playing SFII. I learned how to play from these guys, and within a year, I had become just as good as they were. I was hanging out with people almost twice my age, and conversing with them on their level about a mutual passion - and that's where I've been ever since.

Videogames don't make up my entire life: I cook, I write, I sing, I have a full-time career in IT and am still attending college for a degree in Computer Science, then moving into a Masters in Information Systems Management. Gotta have goals.

Nothing beats a good trip to a good bar where they serve good beer and have a good selection of good tunes. Also, chilled Junmai Ginjo (unfiltered) sake is the nectar of the gods, in case you weren't aware. Of course, those trips are very rare these days, because there is always another diaper to change, and leaving your kid at home in the crib is never an option if you want to be able to look at yourself in the mirror.

Oh, and I really, really love sushi. I can put away amounts of that stuff that some may label as borderline genocidal. I put species of fish on the endangered list singlehandedly. I'm not ashamed. It's their own fault for being born so damn delicious.

Being based out of Daytona Beach, Florida, we don't expect any game-changing amount of turnout for our tournament offerings. We're not exactly known for high-level, high-attendance videogame events.

But we went a long way in changing that last Saturday.

You see, we're big fans of the "conservative estimate." Let's say, ten for BlazBlue, twenty for Smash. Thirty competitors overall. That's considered a success around these parts, when on the topic of a young-gun company set up just to hold tournaments so people can play games and win prizes for doing so with a higher degree of skill than the other guy(s)/girl(s).

So, imagine our shock at seeing twenty people show up for BlazBlue and sixty-three showing up for Smash. It was a great day, by all accounts, and a lot of fun was had by all.

I'll be posting video and full tournament results on our site @ bkin-ubf.com, feel free to stop by if you're interested, and that goes double if you live inside the Central Florida area (i.e., Jacksonville to Miami, Orlando, Tampa, and everywhere else in between). Speaking of locals, if you are in the area, show up to our next jam...which will be very soon indeed, and be featuring two of the hottest titles of all time - one from the old school, one from the new. Just know this...it's war.

Big thanks to everyone who came out and played!
