Papo & Yo: A mirror of my childhood

Struggling against his mass, I gripped onto him as best I could until I was thrown into the metal towel bar. I deflated as it dug into my back...but it was enough for everyone to get away. Many of the most vivid memories f...

 




Gaming as an adult is tough

I spent more than 100 hours playing Borderlands. That's partly because I am obsessed with it. I now find myself returning to the title once again. This time I'm doing so with an old friend who just discovered the unique shoo...

 



Review: FIFA Soccer 11 (Wii)

I haven’t enjoyed a FIFA game this much since the GameCube days. I’ve kept up with the series since then, but have always found it lacking when it came to gameplay. And honestly, FIFA 2011 for Wii plays more ...

 



Gaming on the iPhone has me Hooked.

As someone who grew up with technology and always had the latest gaming systems (Iíve waited in line during system launches in good olí Wisconsin winter weather) one would think Iíd be a little more accepting of it. However,...

Gaming has just always been something I've loved since I was a wee lad. Ever since I picked up that NES controller and played Super Mario Bros...much like any gamer, really!

Video games were actually the impetus for me going to college and earning a journalism degree. If not for EGM, Nintendo Power, OPM, Expert Gamer, GameNow and countless other magazines I don't know what I would have done after high school! I'd like to think professional footballer for Liverpool...well, a man can dream can't he?!?!

Right now I'm replaying Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. I keep up with all the big-time releases, (Marios, Halos, etc.) but I'm also always trying to whither down my pile of shame.

I game on all systems. PC is my least played platform, but five years ago I've finally started to play classics after finally buying a home computer. I've now enjoyed games like Half-Life and others I had only read about before having a mouse and keyboard controlled gaming rig.

Some favorite games of mine: Metal Gear Solid series, almost anything Mario, Halo, Xenogears, Fallout series, Final Fantasy Tactics, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Suikoden 1 and 2...Well, pretty much any good game from any genre except for sports released from the NES era and on. Then it is only Mario sport titles and Winning Eleven and FIFA.

Sad fact about me: I'm desperately (perhaps hopelessly) waiting for a new Shadow Hearts game. :(

Update: It's September in Minnesota (getting chilly), and I'm enjoying Borderlands 2.
