About
I'll play most games and enjoy them but I love fighting games the most. It seems over the last couple of years I've grown to love SNK's King of Fighters series.

I have no sense of direction whatsoever so FPS games are lost to me. Which is a shame because I'd love to get in on the headshotting, curb stomping goodness.

I am absurdly attached to my Nintendo DS (named Pinky, guess what color it is?) and I play it more than all my consoles combined.

I do play MMOs but not WOW. My heart lives in the City of Heroes/Villains as you can see by my banner. I love anything with a superhero vibe.

Favorite games? (just because they're my favorites, but it doesn't mean I'm absurdly wonderful at them)

Fighters:
Marvel vs Capcom 2
KoF '06
KoF XI
Rival Schools
Project Justice
World Heroes (yes I went there)

non - fighters
Mario Kart Wii
Tetris (any)

There are more, but I'm flaking out at the moment... ~_~

Magikarp is a reddish-orange, medium-sized fish. Its notable characteristics include large, heavy scales. Its fins are primarily white, but it has two stiff, three-peaked fins on its back and stomach which are both yellow. It also has long barbels.



Although this Pokémon is capable of surviving in even the most polluted ponds, it is usually overlooked by trainers because it is pathetically weak: even in the heat of battle it will do nothing but flop around. It is not a strong swimmer, and currents in the water will sweep it downstream. They are normally seen using Splash, which is unusual, as it makes them easy targets to predators. Before the species multiplied, it is believed that the ancestors of Magikarp were actually much stronger than the Magikarp seen today, and this belief has led scientists to research this species.



Long-lived Magikarp are able to utilize their immense splashing power to leap high enough to jump mountains. Eventually, they will evolve into Gyrados and KILL YOU ALL.
