About
Who am I?

That's such a crazy thing to ask. I'm just me.

The name is Anthony. I'm 23 years old. I play games. A lot of them. I listen to a lot of music too. I've got Last.FM, Xfire, Skype, AIM, MSN, Yahoo. I'm a junkie for silly programs. And for silly social-networking sites.

I'm just gonna take a page from this things info box, and gonna answer the questions it has for me.

How'd I get into gaming? I was 4, and watched my sister play Link to the Past. Then it started. NES and SNES were my drugs of choice. I didn't have a Genesis for the longest time. Which was sad, because Sonic was cool as hell.

What are my favorites? Oh god.. Rhythm gaming. Started with Dance Dance Revolution US Mix at Cedar Point when it was JUST being introduced. I love Rhythm Games. It mixes gaming, and music. Why not fall in love with it?

Right now, what am I playing? For the Wii: Monster Hunter TRI, Xbox 360: Record of Agarest War, Rock Band 2, Super Street Fighter 4, Warriors Orochi 2. PS3: Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2, M.A.G, Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom (only 3 games I own <.< )

Fancy stuff can come later.

I promise this won't be like my LJ. I won't get emo in here. I'll keep it nerdy ;)

So, just turned on Rock Band 2 for the first time in a while and decided to pick up the guiiiiii-tar. Proceeded to beat my score on Mordecai. Only by 2k; but Mordecai is hard and if you don't believe me, youtube it. That opening is the only reason I can't FC it. Screwy prog-timing.

Rob (vApathyv to you cool kids here on Dtoid) is my Bandmate... yes, I have a Fake Plastic Instrument/Simulation Band. We're called A Severe Fatality (Look us up on Facebook/Twitter!) We have a pretty Rad Bromance. His term, not mine. So I'm sure he'll attest that improving 2k on Mordecai is an accomplishment.

Speaking of silly hard songs on Strings, 'According to You' by Orianthi is insane! That girl can shred.. If you don't believe me, once again I'll direct you to Youtube or your nearest top 40 radio station. You should hear it... between Gaga and Mini-gaga (Ke$ha). What do you guys think? Was the Solo overcharted or did Harmonix do it right? I've never once said or even thought Harmonix overcharted anything, but without knowing how to play the song on a real guitar, I can't even fathom the process of charting that solo. It sounds accurate, just by audio..

But yeah, So if you are reading this, thanks! I'm pretty sure my blog stuff is going to mostly pertain to music gaming; but there may be a time or two where I rant about whatever i'm playing otherwise (Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2 here's looking at you...).

I'm pretty friendly and I love to chat so if you've got something you wanna hit me up about, or whatever; go for it!

(My next post; i'll get fancy and put photos and videos, I promise ;) )
