Been gaming since 1988, 20 years of console wars, Italian plumbers, blast processing, and internet memes. I possess an almost encyclopedic knowledge of the console gaming era of the early 90's and hope to someday put it to good use. I'm a firm believer in the idea that you can love a game company, but can still be critical when said company attempts to get everyone on board a stupid idea. Every game console has it's pros and cons, but in the end it's all about the games themselves and what we the individual get out of the experience. What is looked upon as a waste of time by others, is a benign escape to the rest of us.

I usually play online in FPS, Fighting games, Music Rhythm games, online board and card games and racing games. I'm up for any game genre, but I'm terrible at RTS, I don't know what that says about me, bad micromanaging skills perhaps?
