My Dad and Step Mum visited today, with us living in different parts of the country, they try and visit 3 or 4 times a year, although this years its been more often, probably something to do with my Dad turning 60 next year a...


Proud to be a gamer!

With gaming now become much more mainstream, its suprising that as dedicated gamers, we're still seen as geeks, nerds or generally uncool. Why is this? Personally I have no idea, but I do know one thing. We're never going to ...

New "skate" compilation

Heres my second "Skate" video, this time just featuring myself. Music is "Tangerine" by Brit-Rock group Feeder taken from their "Polythene" album. For some reason I'm most proud of the bail where I smack my head on the handrail!

ARGH Nintendo Wi-fi takes the piss!

I've had enough of this now! I've spent the entire evening trying to get my DS to connect to my Wireless router so I can play Worms: Open Warfare 2 online! I'm very close to saying fuck it and returning the game back to the...

About RivaOnione of us since 8:37 AM on 05.14.2007

So who am I? Well, some call me RivaOni, some call me Duane, depends how you know me. I'm a early 23 year old male from the United Kingdom, currently residing in boring Bedford. I own numerous systems, and a filing cabinet full of games for them. I also run a website called "bitparade" to which you can find a link to below.

I'm the father of a 3 year old little girl, so have to balance my gaming around her, i.e. no violent games until she goes to bed unless shes out for the day.
