About
Hey, I'm Stoo, I live in Fife, Scotland.

Online I enjoyed podcasting, I run Podcast On Fire - "It's Asian Cinema, in a Podcast". Been running it since October 07, total of 25 shows so far as well as at least 30-50 Deleted Conversations/Outtakes etc. So it's pretty much obvious that I'm huge fan of Asian Cinema, been collecting movies for 5 years now and I have probably 200 imports, everything from the old old VCDs to the latest Dragon Dynasty release.

For Gaming, I started out with a Commador 64, playing games like; The Last Ninja 2, this thing with a duck and terminator two, it's all pretty vague. Then I got the usual consoles growing up; Game Boy (Loved playing Legends of Zelda Links Awakening), Sega Mega Drive (I think I only really played Sonic and Theme Park on it), then there was a gap until I got a Playstation w/Final Fantasy VII and once I managed to get into the style of Final Fantasy 7, it became my life, I collected 6, 8 and 9 after that, but only completed 8. I then moved onto the Playstation 2 where I bought and played Final Fantasy 10 (I managed to complete that) and several of the Dynasty Warrior games (with my love of Asian Cinema, this game was so much fun). With the X-Box 360 and Playstation 3 coming out I couldn't decide which title to go with, then one day with far too much money on my hands I ended up buying a X-Box 360, I've had it for nearly two years now and I love it! (even thought I've had to send it back and forth for repairs twice, bloody red light!). This year I also bought a Nintendo Wii and this afternoon I bought a Nintendo DS Lite (15/08/08)!

For Destructoid, I love the community, I wish I was more of a part of it, but I don't know too much about games and their developers, although I'm hooked on all of the sites podcasts, I started off just listening to Podtoid, then tried my luck with Retroforce and thought the show was great! With Podcastle starting up I thought it was another fine edition to my iPod.

I've also tried really hard to get into the Euro FNF, but I've managed to have a game of Call of Duty 4, a free-for-all on Shipment where I ended up coming in second :D I must clear my friday nights for more gaming sessions

So Games I'm currently playing now;

Orange Box (HL2: E2 & TF2)
Puzzle Quest
Braid Trial Demo
Call of Duty 4
Final Fantasy III

oh and here's a picture of me and a big pint!

Hey, a local couple in my area got married and the wife suprised her husband with a Retro Wedding Cake on thier favorite game! Made up of 411 little colored fairy cakes! The couple also walked up the aisle to the Star Wars theme and are now honeymooning in Japan.

So if you had to have a Retro Wedding Cake, what would you have?

[color=darkblue]Hey People, I picked up a Nintendo DS last month and I've bought loads of games to keep me busy. Currently playing Professor Layton and I'm loving it! The puzzles are wrecking my mind, but to solve it comes great joy!

I also got Final Fantasy III, it too looks fun, but I could only focus on one game at a time when it comes the DS.

What games do you suggest I look out in the future?

Other games I've bought/ordered;

Castlevania - Dawn of Sorrow & Portrait of Ruin
Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney & Justice For All
Hotel Dusk Room 215
Pokemon Diamond
Phantom Hour Glass
Mario & Sonic at Olypmics
Final Fantasy CC: Ring of Fates
Final Fantasy T A2: Grimoire of the Rift
Final Fantasy IV
The World Ends with You[/color]

Hey, I don't post much here, but I'm never off the site, so I thought I'd actually fill in the side bar with information about myself :-)

So people feel free to check it out and shoot out some comments.

Best Regards

Stoo :-)

edit...of yeah;









Eastern Condors finally gets a commentary track



The guys over at Podcast on Fire have just released their very first Audio Commentary. Hopefully the first amongst many, the team of Stewart Sutherland (that's me!), Kenneth Brorsson and Mike Banner chose the Sammo Hung Vietnam War flick Eastern Condors as their first victim. The track was recorded using Hong Kong Legends R2 DVD as their template. So if you’ve been itching for a Commentary, you can download it for free over are Podcast on Fire.com. post link... or you could download it via our iTunes.

We've just finished recording our 21st Show, I don't want to spam our weekly shows, but this is special this is our first Audio Commentary!

Bought my Wii yesterday, got Wii Sports.

One of the main reasons I bought it was to get into the Virtual Console, being a fan of RetroForce they have some great suggestions each week etc.

But what games do you think are most worth their money, i bought Mario 64 and I forgot how much I hated the camera angles in it!

So is Breath of Fire 2 any good? I love RPG's any of the old Zeldas worth getting?

Suggestions would be awesome.

I still have 4000 Wii Points to spend lol
