When I was living in Japan, I spent a lot of time shopping for video games in Den Den Town in Osaka (the equivalent of Hakihabara in Tokyo). At that time, I realized that I didn't miss anything special when I was living in ...

About tehlvler One of us since 6:40 PM on 03.09.2008
Hey, I'm teh_lvler. Welcome to my blog!
I've been reading blogs and listening to podcasts on podtoid for a while now, and I thought I might enjoy this website even more if I started my own blog.
I'm a retro-gamer, so I will mostly write about old games. I will also write about stuff unrelated to video games that might interest you.
English is not my native language, but I don't want to use this fact as an excuse for my poor English. Therefore, if I make English mistakes, please let me know and I will be glad to correct it.
Why the name "teh_lvler"?
Well, one of the things that I like the most in video games is to grind for endless hours to see my stats raise and hoping that I will eventually get to lvl 99. For that reason, I wanted to create a nickname that reflects the complete nonsense and the stupidity of my hobby.
What's up with your blog header?
The first RPG that I ever own was Final Fantasy II (IV), so for me, there's a very nostalgic feel to it. I still have the cartridge somewhere in my closet, but the save battery died a long time ago. In my own opinion, because of its bright and colorful manga-ish style, it's one of the most beautiful games of the Final Fantasy series. That's why I decided to incorporate some monsters and characters of that game in my blog header.
Not much because of the gameplay, but mostly because of the awesome music and art style, Castlevania is one of my favorite series. That's why I decided to use the background of the first stage of Dracula X and a picture of Aria of Sorrow.
When I was living in Japan, people couldn't pronounce my French name, so instead of calling me Mathieu, they were calling me Machu. For that reason, I created a name using Chinese characters that sounded like "Machu". The meaning of those two characters is "demonic alcohol" or something like that. Since studying Asian languages is also part of my life, I decided to put it on my front header.
