A Call for More Seasonal Games!


Months ago, when I first heard of Double Fine Productions’ Costume Quest, I kind of overlooked it. I don’t know why; it’s something I tend to do from time to hear about an amazing game but completely blow it off, only to randomly get hyped up months later. A few weeks ago, I saw an ad for it on the Xbox 360 dashboard and decided to look into it fo' realsies this time.

About mgspadaone of us since 9:50 PM on 12.20.2006

I am MG Spada, but go right on ahead and call me Mike. I love video games and have since an early age. I currently hold a Bachelor's of Science in Game Art & Design from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh's Online Division. Don't worry, it was totally not a "tighten up the graphics on level 3" kind of school.

Ultimately I would like to write in relation to games somehow. Be it writing the stories of games, writing reviews and editorials, or updating my Facebook status about video games professionally, I just want to write.

My Top 10 Games of All Time

1. Metal Gear Solid 4: Sons of Liberty
2. Portal 2
3. Super Mario Galaxy 2
4. Banjo-Kazooie
5. The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
6. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty
7. Super Mario World
8. We <3 Katamari
9. ToeJam and Earl 2: Panic on Funkatron
10. Sonic the Hedgehog 2

I'm also a rapper, sketch comedy actor/writer/producer, and I host a wrestling podcast. None of these things are successful.
