Itís kind of hard to pin down why I become such a Squaesoft fanboy back in the day. True Secret of Mana still remains to this day as my all time favorite gaming experience, but apart from that the only other Square game I ...
During the SNES era like many of you out there I discovered just how awesome RPGs, after playing Secret of Mana and Illusion of Time (Gaia for you lot in the USA), I decided I liked RPGs and I need more of them and then alon...
The Super Game Boy came out in 1994 and finally the world of Game Boy was opened up from its black and white monochrome prison, into a world of colour, well kinda. With the Super Game Boy, you were still limited to only 4...
There is no hiding the fact that I'm a Nintendo fanboy. The first ever Non Nintendo video game console I ever owned was an Atari 2600 and I only got that about 5 years ago. Up until getting my 360 earlier this year I neve...
For the most part Iíve always enjoyed Star Wars games, Iíd be hard pushed to find one that I have played that I didnít enjoy (well maybe the Rebel Assault games), hell I even loved Shadows of the Empire on N64 which seems t...
You know how there are those games you love a hell of a lot but are just baffled when you see people hating on them or are surprised that a game is just not getting the love it deserves. And no Iím not talking about the Oka...
Iím not a huge fan of the GTA games, up until the amazing GTA Chinatown Wars on DS the only other one I had really played was the first one on PC which I thought that was a fantastic little game, so much fun just mucking ...
In my early years as a gamer I was not into SHMUPs at all, its not that I did not like them, its just they did not interest me. The only ones I can remember playing was Xenon II on Game Boy (more on that later), Apadyia o...

Hey Hey, abit more about myself I guess, I've been playing games since as long as I can recall, my first love was my C64 and have many fond memories of it such as Jumpman, Archon, Aliens, Mario bros & some weird game involving Camels. After that int he early 90's I got my first real taste of Nintendo with the Game Boy and have been hooked ever since. I'm a loyal Nintendo fanboy through and through and while I may hate them sometimes I'll always return because damit because thats just how a fanboy is meant to be. I would consider myself more of a handheld gamer then anything. I enjoy consoles and all but I just find it easier to lay back and get out my DSi or one of my various Game Boys for some awesome Handheld gaming fun.
Top 5 games of all time.
5. Kirbys Canvas Curse (DS)
4. The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening (GB)
3. The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask (N64)
2. Tetrisphere (N64)
