10 things you might not know about Monodi

1. I secretly enjoy the the soundtrack from 3D Sonic games.



Yes, despite the 3D Sonic games to be utter rotten garbage, I like Live and Learn, His World and others. Even if I don't know the lyrics well. Although the SimplePlan-like shit is annoying. Relax I also enjoy the old ones and way much more.


2. I almost lost an eye when I was a little kid.

When I was a toddler, there was an incident where my big sister accidentally smashed me with the edge of a swing and hit me right in the eyelid. I have a scar from it and I can't believe I didn't end half-blind. Would have been awesome to look like a pirate though.


3. I think Audrey Tautou is the most beautiful actress ever.



Just look at her. DAMN!


4. I usually draw stuff

Yeah I draw, but I am just a bit out of touch due to school crap. See my avatar? Yeah I made this, showing just a fragment in case I go apeshit about art theft etc. Might get back to it soon.




5. I lost my beloved GameBoy Color because some fat bastard pretended to be a friend.

I got tricked back in jr. high by some douchebag that slithered in my friend circle, took my GameBoy Color and he gave me his trading cards in exchange as a warranty. However when we were going to trade back our goodies I couldn't find one of the rarest cards in his collection and he got pissed and kept my handheld with Zelda DX in it. Months later after he changed of school I heard he tricked me by hiding the dung card when giving me his deck back then. I will find that asshole one day and claim back what is mine.


6. I have a taste for syrupy soft drinks.

Dr. Pepper, RC Cola, A&W, Barq's, Mr. Pibb, CocaCola Cherry, they are all in my menu. If it has a funky taste like cough syrup, I'll take it.


7. Number seven is my favorite number



And I got a weird attachment with it. I was born in a January 7th, the only time I won a raffle my ticket was number 7, Aran Ryan is my favorite Super/Punch-Out!! character (and has a funny relation with number 7 too), my 7th birthday party was pretty fucking awesome as it was held on a water park, and much more.


8. I used to be a huge weaboo.



Yeah, back when I was around 12 years old I was very obsessed with animé and japanese stuff. Ruroni Kenshin, Cardcaptor Sakura (lol), Mon Colle Knights (oh jesus, so embarassing), Digimon 1, 2 and 3, Shaman King, Beyblade (again, embarassing), InuYasha (aAAA!!!) pretty much anything animé was in my cup. Fortunately I grew out of it although I still love Shaman King, the Dragon Ball series and Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. And I am still cool with Japan, but not that compulsive anymore.


9. I am a Zelda kid.



Yeah, The Legend of Zelda is my most heartly-attached franchise (second to EarthBound, but is not like there are many games of it), so whenever there is a Zelda game on the way, I am most surely going to buy it. I have the two Nintendo64 titles, Phantom Hourglass, used to have Link's Awakening DX and I am looking forward to get Link to the Past for GBA, Wind Waker and Spirit Tracks.


10. I don't like downloadable games.

Don't take me wrong, WiiWare, PlayStation Network and XBOX Live Arcade have a pretty cool library, but I just do not like to not have physical copies of the games I own. I want to have them in a shelf like any literary piece, read and smell the instruction booklet and keep blowing the cartridge. It is just a folklorike preference as it is part of what I like of being a gamer, it gives attitude. I really wish Cave Story, Castle Crashers, Lost Winds and Megaman 9 are available in a cartridge or CD. Emulating, that's just another thing, I take it as having a temporary console, but I really want to have the systems which are available too.
