Stomping Robot action time go!!!

I am sure if you asked Nic Rowen if I was obsessed  with Mechs he would say yes, but probably not as much as him. I am not entirely sure what got me into Mechs, was it the fact that they were huge? Pushed 3D graphics in the 90s?...

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.
