Why Jan. 26 is NOT Mass Effect 2 day

It seems that some misguided souls think Jan. 26 is not about the incredible combination of Tatsunoko vs Capcom and No More Heroes: Desperate Struggle. Something about that touched me and made me want to show these misguided souls the err...

 
 
 

1/26 - THE day for gaming in 2010?

From a gaming standpoint, 2009 was a bit of a letdown for me. The year started out very strong with SFIV, BlazBlue and a few other titles. Post-Evo, there were only a handful of games that interested me. During the holidays, I managed to fi...

Getting prepped for TvC

Tatsunoko vs Capcom will arrive in January. I already have my pre-order in. This game looks better than SFIV and I find the controls to be a bit tighter. It's not as fast as MvC2 but that's a good thing. Along with 4 new characters, onlin...

 
 
 

My gaming world is upside down

About nilcamone of us since 9:53 AM on 01.31.2007

Old-school gamer. I started gaming with the Atari 2600. I became an addict with the arcade release of Street Fighter II at my college. The SNES release pushed me into buying that system and a lame arcade stick. I haven't looked back since then. I still consider the 16-bit to be the Golden Age of gaming. The current generation is keeping me pretty happy, especially with the fighting game renaissance that's happening lately. And, yes, I'm old.

Proud owner of: Kiwi Gameboy Color, Purple GBA, GBA SP, GBA Micro, PSP 3000, Clear NeoGeo Pocket, purple SwanCrystal, SNES, Genesis, N64, purple Gamecube, PS3, white New 3DS, black Japanese New 3DS, seafoam 2DS, and Wii U.

Favorite Games: Last Blade, Street Fighter Alpha 2, A Link to the Past, Minish Cap, King of Fighters, Ikaruga, Macross: Do You Remember Love, A Link Between Worlds, Ocarina of Time 3DS, Valkyria Chronicles, Professor Layton, Killer7, Pokken Tournament

Games on my mind:
Pokken Tournament
Zelda Picross
Hyrule Warriors Legends
