Resolutions: There Can Be Only One

It is very rare I make any New Year Resolutions of any kind. I said to a friend once two weeks before the New Year that my resultion was to stop eating sweets, in reply she said "Start now, the majority of New Year resolutio...

 


Review: Saints Row the Third

I can honestly say I have seen very little game intros with such epic awesomeness. I can honestly say that one of those games is Saints Row the Third. Some game intros are short and sweet right to the point while others, li...

 


Can't Stand the Ending(s)

My whole life Iíve always been excited to pick up the controller and enter a new world, start a new game. The positive feelings that come with the simple action, like joy and excitement, are just a couple of the pay offs. H...

 






Red Dead Redemption Review

Finally. Red Dead Redemption has to be one of the most badass games I have ever played. It wowed me with it's "oh my god" moments time and time again. From when I got my newly beautifull horse stolen, to when I got mauled by...

 


Violence in Video Games

Yes, I have a thing or two to say about violence in video games. But it might not be what you think. I'm not against pointless violence, for it can be fun. Nor am I against an unrealistic (or realistic at that) amount of viol...

 


E3 continued: 3DS

I remember first hearing about this squeaky bastard not to long ago. I was on that gaming new site N4G, sifting through all the comments of people opinions. Simply put, everyone sounded either angry, or annoyed. There was a l...

About RetroSoldierone of us since 4:05 PM on 12.21.2009

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
