About Dave Flodineone of us since 4:56 AM on 07.19.2011

Hey there.

The name's Dave. I often go by Dave_the_Turnip or Atomicvege while gaming.

Video games have been a huge part of my life. I remember playing Atari at my friend's house in the mid 80s and then entering the gaming sphere myself with a 386 PC and a Nintendo Entertainment System.

Since that time i've kept up with PC gaming while owning a Game boy, SNES, N64, GBA, PS1, Gamecube, PS2, DS, Wii, iphone, and PS3.

I graduated in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts (majoring in Videogame Studies) from Bond University. I helped create and run www.appspy.com for many years before heading back to uni to write my masters on videogame criticism (still happening!)

Oh yeah, while not game related, i draw a comic and have always wanted to be a cartoonist. That can be found at https://www.yetanothercomic.com
