About
My name's Rafael Arbulu, and I'm MSN Games editor (the brazilian version, that is).

Don't like to talk about Rafael Arbulu that much, and pretty much everytime I do talk about Rafael Arbulu, I end up having a hard time.
I'm...errr....22 years old, live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, love RPG games, some sports games, a lot of action games...I just don't like soccer, basketball, football, and other "ball" games...to me, they're all the same thing. Give me races, or anything similar, and we're gonna have some good gaming time.

Besides gaming, I (try to) watch a lot of anime, (try to) read a lot of manga...
I do love...collector's edition games, mangas, animes, action figures (related to anime and gaming, of course).

I'm kind of married...and...that's pretty much it. Any questions, just hit me up. When I get a chance to, I'll answer for sure.

Well, well, it`s been a while since my last post...wish I had happy news or funny stuff to talk about today, though...

Just got an e-mail - press release, actually - from NC Games, one of two major videogame distributors acting in Brazil. There, the company tells me "they're gonna brin King of Fighters XII EXCLUSIVELY to brazilian gaming market"...for R$ 299.00.

Wait, what? R$ 299.00? That's a staggering US$150.00 pricetag, using a quick, non-accurate conversion! Are you kidding me? I mean...people call me crazy for expending big chunks of money on my gaming addiction, but seriously...am I that much of a nutjob?

Also, another funny fact: Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5 are both titles that were "EXCLUSIVELY bought" to Brazil by NC Games, even though the first copies of both hit the shelves with a Synergex Brasil logo - their only rival, and a brazilian branch of David Aielo`s Synergex Corp. Strange, huh?

And I thought I was having it hard only on the journalism field...
