Do Reviews Matter Anymore?

Medal of Honor: Warfighter and Resident Evil 6 received a very poor reception from reviews. Yet, despite this, they are selling quite well. RE6 sold over 3 million units, making it hardly a flop. In the other hand, a game like Okami is re...

 
 
 

The Essence of Fear

What do you fear? I started to play Dead Space for the first time this weekend. And that the game isn't 'scary'. I haven't jumped of my seat because of the traditional scary tactics like monsters jumping from windows/vents or attacking ...

The ManWithNoName Series 2

Review: Sony Wireless Stereo Headset for PS3

Sound is probably the second most important element of any game, after gameplay. Sound is what put us in the mood and a game with bad sound design and music can became unbearable to play. So, having a good sound system can help you to im...

About ManWithNoNameone of us since 10:30 AM on 03.24.2011

Ok, let's see... Well, I am Brazilian, speak both portuguese and english(none of them properly ;) ), have 32 (Yes I am old, shut up) and work at a cable manufacturer. My first videogame system was an Atari 2600 when I was 8yo, then the Sega Master System at 11, a PC, then all the Playstation Family(PS1, 2 and 3 and the PSP).

Nowadays my primary gaming platform is the PS3 and my favorite game is Battlefield Bad Company 2, so if will wanna play or get some help with a trophie, my PSN ID is Man_w_no_name. Feel free to ask me to add you as a friend. My favorite game of all time is Final Fantasy VII and the worst I have ever saw is Danger Girl for PS1.

Aside gaming I love movies, books, anime and manga, Doctor Who and weirdness. So that is it. Hope to find good friends here at Destructoid.

Thanks to falsenipple for the header image! It is awesome as the creator.
