I am a college student, living in the Bronx, NY. I am a Puerto Rican male, 23 years of age, been a gamer since I was 3 in mid 1990 with the NES, and here I am today. I'm into Metal music (favorite bands are Metallica and Slayer), and I'm also into Wrestling (Bret Hart and Steve Austin FTW!).

My favorite game series are Metroid, Super Mario, Mega Man, Castlevania, Star Fox, Sonic (mainly the classics), Street Fighter, Final Fantasy, and many others. I'm into a lot of Genres, but mainly Fighters, Platformers, RPG's, and all sorts of Adventure. Simulated Sports games (like Madden) are my least favorites (I like Fantasy Sports like Punch-Out!!). I currently own a Wii, DS, PSP, and 360 (I am going to get a PS3 in the near future).

I'm really a nice guy, easy to get to know, very down to Earth, and a good listener. Feel free to message me here, or on AIM/Yahoo at Shellshock929. Drop a line, I won't bite ;)

I hope you enjoy reading my profile.

As I've mentioned on other blog comments, I am indeed getting Tatsunoko vs. Capcom: Ultimate All Stars when it comes out on January 26th. I plan to get the game and try out many possible teams until I find the right one that works. I have my eyes set on the following though:

Zero - When I saw him, and found out that it was the Mega Man X Zero, I was amazed.
Frank West - Looks like he can be a potential threat amongst anyone. He did cover wars ya know.
Chun-Li - Queen of the VS Series is back once again, and I'm going to be in control of her like the other vs. Games.
Viewtiful Joe - This dude knows how to rock the house! Henshin a Go Go Baby!
Mega Man Volnutt - Well at least the Legends series gets some love. I know I will definitely use him.
Tekkaman Blade - I am somewhat familiar with the anime "Tenkoman" that was aired on UPN back in the 90's. It's a typical SABAN Dub, but it was cool. He looks like a major menace in this game.
Yatterman-1 - Not familiar with the Yatterman series, but I will give this guy a try.
Yatterman-2 - Same as above, except I will use her more than Yatter-1.
Joe the Condor - Second in Command of Gachaman! I do remember watching G-Force when it was on Cartoon Network. It was a pretty good show, despite the bad voice acting and dialogue, but what do you expect? He looks like he's better than Ken the Eagle.
Polymar - Never seen his anime series, but his play style looks cool.

That's not to say that I will be limiting myself to those 10. I know for a fact that I will complete everything there is to this game, as well as unlocking the minigames (That shooter one looks awesome). I personally think this has more balance than MvC2 because you can use any character on any team and it should work well for you. That's what I like about this game. I have played the Japanese version of this game, but not enough to spend time and practice. My opportunity will be around the corner with this game.

So let's those getting TvC, how is your excitement like? Will you go online right away or will you spend time unlocking characters? Who do you plan to use/main?


Yep, four games released in one day, January 26th. Two are Wii exclusive, one is a PS3 Exclusive, and the other is on XBOX 360/PC. We have multiple choices as to what would you guys choose from. Me personally, I have no interest in Mass Effect 2, and I'd get MAG if I had a PS3, so for now, Tatsunoko vs. Capcom and No More Heroes 2 for me.

I'd like to see what you guys would choose? tt's only 18 days away before all four of those come out.

Well I haven't been here for too long, though only recently I am starting to become a lot more active on this site. Anyways, there are tons of games that will kill my wallet in 2010 (I have no job, but I have other means of making money).

Out of the three consoles, I have to give the nod to the Wii because 2010 looks like it's going to be phenominal in terms of releases. 2009 was a good year, though not as good as many maked it out to be, but it's way better than 2008. Not only the first party releases (Super Mario Galaxy 2, Metroid: Other M, and Sin & Punishment 2 to name a few), I'm also happy to see how much improvement the third party support has become. With games like Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, No More Heroes 2, Monster Hunter Tri, Red Steel 2, and Arc Rise Fantasia (to name a few), they show a lot of promise. I'm sure there are a lot more, but I'll check them out as time progresses.

What comes in second is the console I currently don't own as of this moment (but hopefully during the new year) is the Playstation 3. Now I wont be missing out on all of the exclusives it has to offer me. I am also interested in games like God of War III, White Knight Chronicles, The Last Guardian, and many others. Sony's wand, while it may be a clone of the Wiimote with Motion Plus attached, is intriguing. After watching the demos for it, such as the Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition, I'd be more than willing to pick this up for that, and many other games that support it, even though I do have the Wii. I can't wait to see what else Sony is willing to dish out.

Unfortunately, XBOX 360 is going to be third in terms of the games that I'm interested in, because quite frankly, the only exclusive that appeals to me is Alan Wake. It looks like it's going to be awesome, but I'm not much into Splinter Cell, I'm tired of Halo, and I never got into Mass Effect. The only games I would get on the 360 are Multiplatform games, but even then, not all of them I'd buy on 360 (and I detest the pay for online thing with XBOX Live). The only thing I really like about the 360 nowadays is the XBOX Live Arcade service. It's not that I hate it, but I am disappointed with it. I personally don't think that Project Natal is going to be huge. I just don't see what type of impact it will make, and while it may be too early to tell whether it will flop or prove to be successful, I'll just wait and see what happens.

I'm not sure what to tag this, so this is pretty much a review on what I think about the 2010 line up, when the year has barely even started yet. Let's just hope that 2010 is all for the best. Happy New Years to all of you, and keep gaming!
