Much to my family's disappointment after I got my Psych degree I moved into journalism. At the moment I do games and anime reviews for a free magazine in Sydney which no one reads. I also work casually as a research assistant but that isn't interesting.
I've been gaming since I was a wee lad and as I recall the first console I had was the Atari 2600. Pitfall 2 on the C64 amazed me and at the time I thought it was the deepest games would ever get.
I'm a big SRPG/RPG fan but I also have an itchy trigger finger so FPSes are on the cards to.
I have a weak spot for survival horror but I suck at them. The newer survival horror action games (RE4) are right up my alley.
Also big fan of Clover studios and Capcom in general.
Right now I've got a 360, Ps2, Saturn, cube(for imports) and Wii set up and I've also got a PSP & DS.
This week on FSA we are joined by Gamespot Reviewer Laura Parker and Darryn King from The Vine & 3dworld.
This week Larua talks about movie tie-ins with Indiana Jones Staff of Kings and Harry Potter XXXIV, Darryn covers the still not released in Europe Donkey Kong Jungle Beat, Matt talks about the pains of Title Defence Mode in Punchout (SEVEN HOURS ON SODA POPINSKI!) and Fight Night Round 3 to get hyped for FNR 4 (Does anyone in NA even know who Mundene is?). Finally Geoff plays through FFXI and XII at the same time... and then plays Haze...
Indie game covered is Choke on my Groundhog YOU BASTARD ROBOTS!!
Puzzle Quest is the Ridiculous game of the week.
Finally, since Laura has previously interviewed Michael Atkinson we discuss Australia's bizaroo rating system
