I'm 24 years old and from MN.
I'm currently trying to finish up college at Winona State.
Currently playing: MvC3, SSFIV and deblob 2.
I own: 360, Dreamcast, Wii, DS, N64, Gameboy(broken) and a slew of virtual console games.
My first system was the Nintendo Gameboy with Super Mario Land and Kirby's Dream Land. I grew up playing Sonic 2, Aladdin, NBA Jam and Donkey Kong Country at my neighbor's house. My favorite genres include platforming, action and rhythm games.
When I was 5, I had to get 10 stitches in my head because I cracked my head open on a stepping stone which hurt. I did get a root beer popsicle after words though :)
9. Didn't all Gameboys come with Tetris?
My original Gameboy didn't come with Tetris. For serious. But I had Kirby's Dreamland so it was all good.
8. I am generally fairly quiet.
I am usually kind of quiet but if you can get me to come out of my shell so to speak, I can be fairly talkative. It really depends on the subject.
7. I have never been to a gaming convention
I really want to go to PAX someday, but as long as it is in August this conflicts with the beginning of my college semester which makes me a sad panda.
6. I tend to buy a lot of games but only complete a few of them.
I tend to start games, get fairly far and not finish them. I am trying to change this by not buying as many games.
5. As much as I enjoy the Zelda series, I have never competed a Zelda game.
The farthest I have gotten in a Zelda game is probably Link's Awakening. I got to the Eagle's tower but the teleportation in that temple started to annoy me so I stopped playing it.
4. I have never been drunk in my life I have gone out drinking before, but never been drunk. Not really sure why, but I guess I just like to remember shit.
3. I went to Germany a few years ago. It was rad
I went to Germany with my high school German class. We went to Berlin, Rottenberg and Munich to name a few places. I wish I could import some Spezi from there. Its a orange cola and its delicious.
2. The first console I owned was the Nintendo 64.
My first handheld was the Gameboy, but I never got a console until the Christmas that the N64 came out. I think the first games I had for it were Mario Kart 64 and Super Mario 64. I played used to play SNES games at my neighbors house, but I never had one of my own.
1. I am a sucker for deals.
If a game is $10 or under and I am semi-interested in it I will usually buy it. Examples include Stranglehold, Elebits and Metroid Prime Pinball.
