Oh, hello. Do you remember me? It's been awhile since I've posted anything, you know, and I really hope you didn't forget me. I mean I did buy you that pony you wanted for Christmas and everything, I was hoping you'd keep ...
I'm not afraid to say it. I like taking it off, and sticking it in. I've been doing it for years, and I'll openly admit that it gives me pleasure in doing so. Some may consider it inappropriate or old fashioned, but I've a...
So by now everyone knows, Microsoft has officially ditched their DRM policies and allowed you the ability to share your games the same way you've done it for...well, ever. On the surface this seems like a great decision, a s...
It's been awhile since I tapped my inner soul to write a blog. A long time since I've let my emotions surface in a way expressed through anything but intense cynicism and social isolation. But I noticed something after the ...
A lot of random, angry adjectives have been thrown at Microsoft lately regarding the Xbox One and it's unusual desire to regulate everything you do on it. Look, I get the anger, but what we should really be focusing on is th...
Today I did something I've never done before. I participated in an industry based focus group. I thought it'd be a great chance to see if mainstream America really was full of backwards hat wearing, beer guzzling, violent, ...
If you're like me, you're just sick and tired of reading all these professional reviews about boring, relevant games that come out practically every day. You ask yourself, where are the reviews I care about? Well don't worr...
So it's Valentines day, that special day when you cuddle up with that special someone and do special things. Maybe you're going out to a nice meal? Seeing a movie? Or perhaps doing something so disgustingly inappropriate t...
If I know you, you're just sick and tired of reading all these professional reviews of boring, relevant games that come out practically every day. You ask yourself, where are the reviews I care about? Well rest easy friends, ...

That's right. What if the companies that make or publish our games decided to make carbonated beverages? What if all the things we love or hate about our industry were now applied to delicious soda pops and juice drinks? M...
What I am am is just your average guy. Living out my life in relative peace, trying to make a living in this rough and tumble world. An aspiring game designer, you might call me, I wast...erm...spend 2.5 years of my life going to school for said aspiration as well. What will come of this dream? Hell if I know.
But beyond that, I'm your typical gamer. I play a bit of everything, here and there. Anything from shooters to obscure Japanese fare is in my history, I've also been found scrolling through lines of Japanese dialogue, pretending like I can read it. Pretty fun, right?
I'm a 360 guy mainly, it serves as my main platform. I also have a PS3 and a Wii of course, along with several other consoles which I will list below because, well, I feel like it. Listing things passes the time, makes the world go round.
As I said, shooters and action games grab my attention mostly, I do dabble in RPGS (but never seem to finish them) as well as adventure games and the like. I'll play and enjoy just about anything, so long as it isn't an MMO. I have stories about that, but I'll tell you later.
Some of my favorite games of all time?
Jet Set Radio
Phantasy Star Online
Taiko No Tatsujin
Metal Gear Solid
Katamari Damacy (+ Sequels)
Time Crisis (+ Sequels)
Ninja Gaiden 1, 2 and 3
Starfox (+ 64)
There are several more, but too many to list here. I own several systems, most of which I don't find the time to play.
Xbox 360 (Modern Warfare 2)
Xbox 360 (Resident Evil 5)
Xbox 360 HD-DVD Drive
PSP (Carnival Bright Yellow)
GBC (Translucent Purple)
GBA SP (Nintendo Classic)
Nintendo 64 (Black, Gold)
Nintendo 64 (Pikachu Edition)
Neo Geo Pocket (Camo)
Neo Geo Pocket Color (Silver)
Colecovision (+ Atari 2600 adapter)
I have a modest collection of games for most of them, I buy more every now and then when money allows, and I'm always looking for more. It's a bit of a hobby, I guess. An expensive one at that. Favorite system would have to be the Dreamcast. Why? I'll write a blog about it someday. Next to that would be my 64.
I own a Power Glove as mandated by Nerd Law.
So if you can't tell by now I'm somewhat of an addict. I usually go out of my way to own or secure unusual or rare looking video game stuff, and sometimes wind up buying things just for the sake of owning them. Why do I have a Japanese Guncon 2? I'm not sure yet.
So there you have it, that's me. I'm a pretty friendly guy, I suppose. I like tacos, anime and long walks on the beach. Just your average person, right?
