Nintendo Wifi Connection: A Eulogy

Suikoden Tierkreis (DS) Impressions!

Retro Game Challenge (DS) Impressions

Sketchbook: 2/2/09- Link and Contra Drawings

Best 21st Birthday Ever! Here is What I Got.

About jackal27one of us since 1:28 AM on 06.16.2008

I'm mostly a retro gamer. I don't hate everything after the 90's, but I tend to prefer retro game design. I enjoy alot of indie and portable games, not to mention a blockbuster title every now and then. However, like I said, the majority of my gaming takes place on older consoles.
