More Than Just Noise: It Simply is My Jam.

I have a big flaw, I am very easy to please or amuse. I can give my attention to many things easily, or more precisely, get distracted with them. If you want to show me something or tell me a joke, most cases will be that I will enjoy it....

Revisiting Donkey Kong 64

I have been raving about Donkey Kong lately, and doing so has invited me to go back to one of my favorite games as a child. The very extensive Donkey Kong 64. It has been a while since I played this game. It has been collecting some dust ...

 
 
 

It's for EVERYONE.

Excuse me, come again? I was leveling up my Tauros. Oh, what? Why am I playing a game for kids? I am sorry, no, this is a game for me too. Yeah I am sure of that, it says that on the rating. E for Everyone. That means kids, adults, babi...

 
 
 

There is something odd about Donkey Kong...

The Donkey Kong franchise stands as one of my favorites for the longevity and evolution it got through the years. The way a group of still then underdog british guys expanded the gameplay and family tree is to be appreciated. With the inc...

 
 
 

PLAYPOWER is something you guys should know about.

Just today on Twitter, I stumbled upon this magnificent volunteer based project to make very cheap educational game systems using 8-bit graphics to help on developing countries like India or Pakistan. The price of these systems? Around 1...

 
 
 
 
 

Hey remember when I said that I draw? [NVGR at all]

Because, well, I can. I just haven't done much in the past year. So I thought it was a good idea to whore out some of my old and current stuff. Life in college has made me discover something, I don't only procrastinate homework and projec...

 
 
 
 
 
 

Drill Dozer Mini-Comic Scans! [Contribution]

Oh hello. Well you see, I am a huge fan of Game Freak's works, especially their original action games like Pulseman, and their underdog: Drill Dozer. So the purpose of this entry is simply because the other day I was looking for scans of ...

 
 
 
 

The Future Needs to be Awesome Again

Ok, straight to the point. You know what really grinds my gears? Our now tiring perspective of how the future looks like. Seriously, remember when we were anticipating the year 2000 for having flying cars, holographic communication, and...

http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?p=20146899 Fuck. Fucking fuck. Shit fuck fuck dammit. This is so sad. I became a huge fan of Cing the moment I played Trace Memory and Hotel Dusk Room 215 for the first time. They brought back...

 
 
 
 
 

My Expertise: Amateur Commander and Strategist

There are times that the battlefield will look like a disgrace. Our defenses are low, our snipers just want to back off, and the enemy got us surrounded. There are times when victory is nothing but a sissy dream or an illusion caused by t...

 
 
 

I Love it Because it's Stupid

I have a confession to make: I have a very, very sensitive funny bone. I can laugh at almost everything that intends to be funny. I will admit that I like to watch Family Guy as tiring the jokes can get, I feel like I just have to enjoy t...

The Memory Card: The Citadel and Dr. Wallace Breen

About Monodione of us since 10:46 PM on 10.15.2008



About time I updated this freaking thing!

For those who already know me, I am Monodi. Those who doesn't, well, I am Monodi.

I got such a growing passion of gaming through the years and now I am currently in college starting my courses of Game Design as well!

I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy from all my life, but I have been much more in contact with titles for PC recently. Not that I am abandoning one, but I think it pretty much could cover the best the industry has to offer.

I am up for the philosophy that gameplay is more important than graphics, but I think graphics and technology are also a crucial part of the industry and experience even.
