What’s in a frame?

So I did something I thought that I would not do. I went out tonight and went to Best Buy and checked out some the price drops on games in the heat of the holiday mad rush. Personally I don’t really care too much about deals as I...

Ten Random Sega Genesis Games

Well its no lie that I lack proper ways of storing games. In high school my grand father gave me two brief cases and as I was in high school I really had no reason to use a brief case. (Half of it was that I had sleep apnea and any hop...

Man I really like Pokken

As one of the Wii U only exclusive mainstream fighting games I have to say it has been a delight. Sure the combat system could be simplified into an elaborate game of paper rock scissors, but only fools would actually their input choic...

About Retrofractionone of us since 5:01 PM on 08.24.2009

I play really old video games and enjoy them.

My parents bought an NES and MM6 and Metroid and that is how I got into gaming.

You could say I am a Nintendo fan boy, but I am starting to get off of that train as of recent.

Anyway hope you enjoy my blogs and feel free to leave a comment.
