About
Hi, my name is Skid Row Trash. I have been gaming and creating add-ons and mods for games since I was 11. I'm 30 now, and I still love gaming. My first gaming system was a NES, followed by a Sega Genesis. After that, I got the Sega CD. I think I am one of the few that actually enjoyed the hell out of that system. I had to replace my Sega Genesis once because of problems, and had to replace my Sega CD 3 times, and repair it once. My first computer ever was a 386 with a huge 40mb hard drive, dos, and eventually windows. Started out playing games like wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Commander Keen, Blake Stone, and the list really is endless.. Civ 1..

After this I got a SNES. What a fun system. This was soon after followed by a Nintendo 64, and eventually a PS1 and Gamecube. I had to exchange my PS1 once because it broke. After that I had a PS2, and an Xbox. I loved both those systems so much. I had to replace my PS2 3 times, and my Xbox 3 times due to hardware problems.

These days, I am gaming on Xbox 360, and PC. I don't bother with PS anymore because I have large hands and their analog sticks are way too close. I find both thumbs fighting each when trying to play anything on a playstation these days and much prefer the improved analog stick setup that Xbox 360 has.

I am currently on my 6th Xbox 360, and have Kinect as well.

My first one died from disc tray problems.
My second one I had Nyko Intercooler which actually melted into my xbox 360 and the 2 seperate things became 1 single entity.
My 3rd Xbox was a red ring of death
my 4th Xbox eventually wouldn't even turn on.
my 5th xbox still sorta works, but the disk tray takes like 40 tries to open and takes more and more time each attempt. Also when the door is closed it things the door is open, and thus I can't launch any games.
my 6th Xbox 360 was to replace my last one, but at the same time I wanted to have the most recent so I got a kinect package. Also, this is the first time I have had the ability to use HDMI with my Xbox 360, because all 5 xboxes I had before they kept sending me old units with only Component video.

anyways, I am a real big time gamer and like to try all games (except for sports because well.. sports are weak).

Hey, I just saw an amazing movie last night and I just wanted to let everyone know. It's called Stakeland, and it is a vampire post apocalyptic style movie that totally reminded me of Fallout.

(Extremely minor spoilers ahead)



Imagine fallout's apocalypse was not caused by nuclear weapons, but by a vampire plague. That is this movie. The whole setting is very much like what you experience in your adventures through the Fallout Wasteland. Roving gangs of marauders and insane cults with safe zones etc, and of course they are on their way to a famed safe haven name "New Eden".

The music very much reminded me of Fallout, and the background ambiance will surely bring back visions of trying to cross a wasteland full of destruction. Throughout the movie you will hear random radio stations etc while they are in a car or something and it is so much like fallout. Random pirate radio stations, some sort of government spin offs etc, even cults and stuff. By the way, there is a group in the movie called the Brotherhood (Fallout had Brotherhood of Steel). Not the same at all, but every little thing reminds me of Fallout in this movie.

A must see for sure if you are a fan of Fallout's style, and or you like unique vampire movies.
I saw it on Netflix last night, it blew my mind. I am so hyped for Fallout 4!
