About

Gaming History:

I grew up on NES, SNES, and N64. Then took a break from gaming for a few years to party and be in a band in high school and college. Then once I was out of college I picked up a PS2 and started playing again. A few years later I picked up a XBOX 360, then a Wii, and finally a PS3 then an old modded XBOX that plays NES, SNES, Genesis & N64 games. I have since sold the Wii because I never played it. I don't play PC games. I buy all multi-platform games on the 360.


Let's get personal...
I was an atheist for the first 21 years of my life, then God showed me He was real in an extremely powerful way that I just couldn't deny no matter how much I wanted to ignore it. I then spent a few years doing youth ministry and traveling North America sharing the Gospel. After that I was a Spanish teacher in private and public schools. I then became a sales/product trainer for Best Buy. then a sales/product trainer for Toshiba's Laptop division. I know train for PayPal. I am single and have 3 fantastic sons, one of which has Autism which has it's challenges but he is such a great little dude. I am a musician; I have played drums for a little over 14 years. And dabble in a little classical guitar.



I am a very passionate person. I love my sports teams; RedSox, AZ Cardinals, and PHX SUNS. I enjoy a great beer preferably a Pale Ale or IPA. MOAR HOPS! I'm always down for an intelligent discussion; The more profound the better. In my opinion Gamers get a bad rep, because of a large percentage of gamers are immature tools, who lack couth. I'm in no way a violent, blood-lust filled person, like those you hear on Xbox Live or PSN spouting of racial slurs or obscenities. I just grew up on games and they've stuck with me.

I was very inspired this week by the Half Life 2 Fan Film that was posted last week on DTOID, which caused me to look around for some fan films of my favorite game of all time FALLOUT. I found quite a few some better than others, but wanted to put them together in one spot for others to enjoy. So without further adieu... here they are I hope you enjoy. I've also included some pics of me in costume at the bottom.

WHO WON? = IMO, nobody won, maybe Microsoft had a slight edge over SONY because of new things being announced/shown/media content Youtube/IFC.

WHO LOST? = IMO, there was no outright loser, but SONY everyone seemed super nervous and things didn't go too smooth on stage, but I think NINTENDO didn't outright lose now, but I think the coming months will be cloudy for NINTENDO, and the WiiU launch will not go well. Nintendo showed us some random CGI video, and gameplay from XBOX/PS3 games.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I think Nintendo was the lowest of the 3, I got a boatload of PROMISES, which lately NINTENDO has NOT come through on well. I think the NINTENDO piece about WiiU was basically thrown together in the last few weeks, and really didn't have much to it. I fully expect the Nintendo WiiU Launch to SUCK, and have no games to play JUST LIKE THE 3DS. I think Nintendo is getting too big for it\'s britches, and can\'t keep up with their ideas.

I would say Microsoft was slightly ahead of SONY, because SONY didn\'t really give us much of a surprise on anything.

Microsoft gave me actual things that are happening and dates around them.

NINTENDO DIDN\'T GIVE US A PRICE FOR THE CONSOLE OR THE CONTROLLER, again I really think they just tossed this thing together with no real idea of when, how much, or exact details of anything at this point. I'm extremely worried about how much the ipad wanna be controller is actually gonna cost, and how much the console is going to cost.

It makes me wonder CAUSE WE NEVER SAW THE ACTUAL CONSOLE, if it has even been finalized SPECS wise. I\'m starting to really doubt what the plan is, which leads me to believe that again NINTENDO will have a terrible launch as far as games go, I also see a alot of DELAYS/PUSHBACKS happening with the WiiU. I want to see hardwarde stats/specs, cause the image in the background of the console next to the TV was EXTREMELY VAUGE for a reason, there is a reason we never saw an actualy picture of the console and that worries me. Yes i understand the focus is on the controllers, but I need to see the console and the specs before I start believing or stop worrying. I've been let down way too much since the N64 and until I see otherwise that is what I will expect from Reggie's stupid face.

Look the Wii sold a bunch of consoles (prizes at work/moms/old people) that's cute and all and we get that, but the console on the whole just collected dust and was a failure in the opinion of many when it comes to games. In order for CAFE to work/be accepted it HAS TO RETURN TO THE NES/SNES/N64 glory days. It has to have many of the games that made those years great, but in new HD stellar ways, but with awesome game play. It also is going to have to have a online system that is better than the PS3.

I'm really worried about this whole "touch screen" controller, yes I get that it's supposed to knock off the iphone app sales, but I'm still worried about the gimmicky possibility its going to be. I can see it being a stand alone hand held that can stream games from the console without the TV having to be on, so mom and dad can watch CSI, and the kid can still play via the screen on the controller. Because when I think of the word CAFE I think of people in a cafe sharing WiFi, so I'm sure that will be part of the functionality of the console; all controllers having one game being played at the same time each person seeing something different.



Here are the things I'm sure off...

100% - Not necissarily at E3, but they will happen
Zelda Skyward Sword (Duh)

CONTRA

70% -

Something 007 to get people into the online play
Kid Icarus

Would be really cool but totally a pipe dream -

Strider
Ghosts N Goblins
Maniac Mansion
Karnov
Earthworm Jim
Mario Paint
SUPDER DODGEBALL ... PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!!

WHAT GAMES/FEATURES ARE YOU FORSEEING FOR CAFE?

'Twas the night before Black Friday and all through the land,
gamers were worrying, longs lists in hand,
For their stockings were soon to be hung up with care
and they knew without shopping, those socks would be bare

With turkey in their tummies and pumpkin ale flowing,
they turned in for the night, quite fully knowing
that noobs were nestled all snug in their beds
with gaming sale visions dancing in their heads.


When out like a light, a pixelated dream came into focus.
They never suspected any hocus-pocus.
Scratching their bums, they leapt out of bed
stumbling and sleepy, and rubbing their heads


They ran to the PC to check their bank account stash,
they looked in their wallets, and realized they were short on cash.
Then on the internet, what should appear,
But a list of all the gaming deals, so have no fear.


With too many games to be had,
they had to choose which games aren't a fad.
More rapid than broadband, Mr. Dtoid's reindeer came,
as he whistled and shouted and called them by name:


"Now KINECT! Now MOVE!
Now, Dance Central get on your grove!
On, Xbox! On Sony!
On, Nintendo Wii!
To the top of the porch!
To the chimney wall!
Now game away! Game away!
Game away all!


As stressed-out shoppers that before the sale do fly,
when they meet with an obstacle and poke out an eye.
So up to the house-top the reindeer they flew
with a sleigh full of consoles and peripherals too.


And then, in a twinkling, was heard on the roof
the prancing of each little pixilated hoof.
As they watched from the top of the stairs, mouths agape,
St. Dtoid appeared on the hearth with nary a scrape.


He was dressed all in glory, from his shoes to his head
and his eyes were glowing, as though infrared.
A gaggle of games dropped into sight,
including the latest Call of Duty, with zombies to fight.


His eyes how they sparkled! They looked just like cherries!
His grin was enough to make anyone merry!
His discs were plentiful and easy to switch,
and his online play ran with nary a glitch.

His controller batteries were lithium and long-lasting to boot,
and his trigger fingers were ready to shoot.
His consoles streamed NETFLIX in the highest resolution,
And his Facebook integration was the perfect solution.


He spoke only two words, as he filled up the socks,
he snickered and smiled as he said, "also c*cks"
And laying his finger on a nearby present for a goof
he turned of the console and was gone in a poof.


He uploaded to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle,
and they all took off like a Black Ops Valkyrie missile.
A rhyme left behind put it all in perspective.
Go Black Friday shopping, this is your final directive.




And now some wonderful memories of Black Friday's past...

Becareful out there DTOID community! With the economy even worse this year, the frenzy will be even greater, we don't want you hurting your precious thumbs or any other appendages for that matter.
