Independent Retailers Are Getting Shafted

Super Nintendo Vs. Genesis

Oh, we're going there, together. As a 25 year old who had access to most consoles out there during his youth, and grew up to be working at a retro video game store for 5+ years and counting, this is a very passionate subject for me. There...

 
 
 

"Gamer"s Do Not Exist Anymore

I remember a time when being a gamer just labeled you as such, a "Gamer". Then came along the divider for girls, "Girl Gamer". Don't forget the casual crowd, forcing the term "Gamer" to be divided into "Casual" and "Core". Well it appear...

 
 
 

Speaking of Grapes, I mean Rape.

There needs to be a mainstream AAA video game that has tons of rape. Rape doesn't have to be the focus, but it needs to consistent throughout the game. I'm being serious when I say this. When religion and Hell was unheard of in mainstrea...

 
 
 

My Piece On The Current Bullcrap.

So DESTRUCTOID fires Ryan Perez because he voiced his opinion on Felicia Day on Twitter. Yet every chance they get, they make fun of Bobby Kotick and Michael Patcher. I'm not even going to single out Jim Sterling doing this, because we all ...

 
 
 

Nobi The Nord: Welcome Home!

I have decided to do a specific playthrough of Skyrim. Expert difficulty, no increasing health or magicka, no compass, no map, no quest tracker. Oh, and perma-death! This is the story of Nobi the Nord as he moves to Skyrim to be with his fe...

 
 
 

Ozzblog Backlog: January 1-7

With New Years just passing, one of my resolutions was to put the biggest dent into my backlog. I'm hoping to beat last years record of 66 completed games, except this time in just unbeaten games rather than ones I've perfected over the yea...

So to prep myself for Rage on October 4th, I've decided to do a playthrough of every single id Software game, developed or published. It's about 32 games in 30 days, and with each game estimated at 8 hours, will take 256 hours to complete....

 
 
 

Downloadables: Epic Breath of Despair

One entry from last week tickled my fancy in a way I did not expect. It talks about digital distribution being the death of retro gaming. While it's an excellent read, I outright disagree with the saying "the death of retro gaming", but in ...

 
 
 

Digital Distribution: Save Your Money

I'll be the first to say I used to be 100% against digital distribution, but as it's grown in size and value, it's crept into and became a permanent part of my life. Now how can something I hate with a passion become not only part of my lif...

 
 
 

Freedom: What Killed JRPGs

The Legend of Ozz

---So I want to start blogging, but can't decide how to start, so I figured I'd just go off about the magical path we all took to become gamers. While everyone has a different story for how they became the gamer they are today, it shows tha...

 
 

About Shinobi13one of us since 7:55 PM on 03.05.2010

Name's Ozz, I'm 25 and hail from Southern Ontario, Canada. Tetris broke my gaming cherry back in '89, thanks to Game Boy, and I've been obsessed with gaming since '98.
My favourite console would be the Nintendo 64, and favourite game is Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Aside from Zeldas, my favourite genre is First Person Shooters (Specifically old-school, DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D).
