About Alaelone of us since 7:23 PM on 11.14.2007

Hello! I´ve been reading Dtoid for a while, but just recently I decided to join this amazing group!

A bit about myself... My name is Eduardo, I´m 28, Brazilian and living in Rio de Janeiro right now. I have a degree in Medicine and I´m taking Radiology and Diagnostic Imaging as my specialty.

I joined the gaming world when my dad gave me an Atari 2600 plus Pac-Man, River Raid and Pitfall. Well, after 20 years and 7 consoles later (Atari 2600, NES, SNES, Mega Drive, N64, PSone and PS2) I´m still playing those "children toys" ;)

This Christmas Santa is bringing me a Wii plus a bunch of games, even Gamecube ones!

And no, I don´t think the PC is a gaming machine at all (you can flame me as much as you want, Crysis fanboys!)
