Madness spreads to Playstation Network, Military style

One of the not so well known retro secrets is that the TurboGrafix-16 was once home to some of the best console strategy games of its time.  Well, at least that's how I remember it. Regardless, it's no secret that Military Madness is o...

Most gamers can remember the so-called console wars of the 16-bit generation. At the time, each of the console competitors used every advantage they could to show how their system was the right system to own. Along with graph...   read

E3 09: Tekken 6 will have single player Scenario Campaign

When Hamza and I went to the Konami event a ways back, I did a very brief preview of Tekken 6. The reason it was so brief is because at that time there was very little to report on. While that's not a knock on the title in any way, there ju...

While Namco Bandai was regaling the gaming press with their line up of titles yesterday, the announcer said, "What kind of Japanese gaming developer would we be if we didn't have an RPG in development?" As an avid fan of JRPGS fro...

Preview: Food Network: Cooked or Be Cooked

In a perfect world, either Dale North or Johnathan Ross would have been on hand to preview this game. Not because I didn't think it was cool, but because all they ever talk about when we're all together is food. And the Food Network. And sh...

About Dysonone of us since 3:20 AM on 10.30.2006



When not protecting the world from the injustices on all things non-awesome, I have some time to play some games. Not much time, but I do what I can. There's a lot of non-awesome in the world, so myself and the rest of the members of Team Awesome stay quite busy.

Also, I live in San Francisco, so if you're in the area or see me around say hi. I promise I won't bite. I work full-time for two different video game related companies. At one I test the vidja games. At the other I do PR for video games. Eventually I will only be doing the PR gig, so I'll finally have some free time in which I can return to hosting RetroforceGO!

I'd tell you the names of the companies, but I think the one I test for would probably have a hissy fit if their legal department knew there was a Destructoid Associate Editor in their testing department ;)


Random bullshit:

I like pizza rolls
Diet Pepsi is win
I have a yellow Cuban pimp suit



I'm Scorpio
SNES was prolly my most favorite system
I have a cape and wear it often
I do not like banana flavored candy of any kind
I drink beer from brown paper bags
Weezer's El Scorcho pretty much describes me
You can always crash on my couch
I flip a coin like Two-face to make decisions
