My real name is Mario
(Merry Ho kinda sounds like Mario)
Anyway, I enjoy almost everything gaming so i might as well just tell the things I don't like.
-I'm not a fan of sports games, unless they are retro

-I'm not a fan of tactical shooters

Other then that I will play whatever.
But what I LOVE:
Using not-emulators with my not-roms to play retro games, even if it is to make fun of how bad most of them are, and to cherish the few wonderful games there are.

Any rhythm based game

From the day I first heard about Rock Band having 4 playable instruments this is a picture that I knew would be cool to make. I guess you could call me a Photoshop Hero.

To start off, I am a PS3 user, and as you all know the people who bought Rock Band for PS3 were pissed to find out about the Guitar incompatibility issue, the only way to get a second guitar was to buy another boxed set, but sadly I didn't have another $170 to spare. Previous to finding out that the guitars were not going to work together I bought Guitar Hero 3 under the impression that their would be compatibility between the 2 games. So for months getting together with my friends and jamming out we lacked a bass player. "Official" guitars were released for Rock Band and Guitar Hero 3, but I wasn't about to buy 2 more guitars. Then finally NYKO released the FrontMan Wireless Guitar(Wireless Guitar Controller for use with Rock Band™ and Guitar Hero III™ on the PlayStation 3)

At first I was a little skeptical I thought it might be a really faulty, cheaply designed toy guitar. I was pleasantly surprised. The guitar is most like a Guitar Hero guitar, familiar clicking strum bar, which actually helps a lot with accuracy, the buttons most remind me of the X-box Gibson Explorer guitar, no bump in between each button which makes for easier sliding. All said and done, I use this as my main guitar for both Rock Band and Guitar Hero. And now it feels complete when my friends come over to rock.
