I FINALLY got to try the Wii U

The Best Buy near my house has had a Wii U set up for almost a month already, but it rarely works. The glass case it's in apparently causes it to overheat a ton, and it only randomly syncs the right way. Well, it was finally playable the ...

 
 
 

Making a case for the Wii U Basic Set

LOOK AT IT. IT'S FOR POOR PEOPLE. I don't think I need to reiterate how excited I am for the Wii U. With Nintendo actually willing to publish things like Ninja Gaiden 3 and Bayonetta 2 -- something that would NEVER have happened this gene...

 
 
 
 

pedrovay2003 Reviews: Ace Attorney - The Movie

Anyone who has seen the myriad of movies based on video game titles will know that, generally, things don't usually turn out the way they should. Things are drastically changed, storylines become muddled, and, in the case of something lik...

 
 
 

How do you know you're "good" at video games?

Good. F******. Luck. I was chatting with my friend Mark over Skype not too long ago, and he was just about to finish Amnesia: The Dark Descent. Since he's in New Jersey and I'm in Utah, I had been kind of "watching" him play the game thro...

 
 
 

Shortblog: Windows 8 Pro upgrade is only $40

Source I'm a little shocked, to be honest. I'm wondering if adopting early is a good idea, or if we'll get another Vista. I got to play around with the free developer build of Windows 8, and I was surprised. I thought it would be border...

 
 
 

My Big-3 E3 thoughts (this will be short)

Okay, so all three conferences from the big three were boring this year. I don't think anyone can really deny that. So this is how I felt about each one individually: MICROSOFT: They were terrible. I don't really know what else to say abou...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I am so happy in the face right now. (Shortblog)

I'd like to add my personal good news to the plethora of excellent Phoenix Wright stuff that's been coming out this week. Today, I have FINALLY secured the last game in the series, which gives me the complete Ace Attorney series in one plac...

 
 
 

Indie Game: The Movie Review

Yesterday, I was lucky enough to get to go to the Sundance Film Festival and catch a showing of Indie Game: The Movie in Salt Lake City (about 20 minutes from my house). I had been following news about this movie for quite a while -- most...

 
 
 
 

A Piece of My Mind: Calling (Review)

In March 2010, a highly under-the-radar Wii game named Calling was released in the U.S., a few months after its Japanese debut. This horror game was immediately panned by critics, and currently holds an abysmal 49/100 on Metacritic. I'm a...

 
 
 
 

The Little Big Bunch Indie bundle DOES have DRM

A couple weeks ago, Destructoid gave us a preview of a couple Indie bundles that would be coming our way. I was particularly excited about the Little Big Bunch, because it contained the PC version of Explodemon, which I loved on the PS3. ...

 
 
 
 

Peripherals: The Rumble Pak

Nintendo has always been credited (rightfully, in my opinion) with coming up with new and innovative things that change the way we play video games. Most times, these electronic wonders are extremely successful, like the Wii and DS have c...

 
 
 

The scam known as Xbox LIVE

(Hoo boy... Regardless of this just being my opinion, I'm sure I'm going to catch hell anyway. Here we go...) Recently, Destructoid posted an article about how the Xbox 360 will soon have access to Comcast and Verizon pay TV content, in ...

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Motion controls and marketing (Shortblog)

I'm going to get this out of the way right out of the gate: I think Kinect sucks. I've played several games with it, I've followed Microsoft's conference today, and I still think it sucks ass. It's laggy, there are no buttons, and it cost...

 
 
 
 

Happy Holidays: Maybe Santa DOES exist...

I was always taught that Santa, as in the big, red, flying-in-a-sleigh guy, doesn't exist, but the idea for him wasn't just pulled out of a hat, either -- St. Nicholas existed, and he was a good guy. He gave gifts to people simply becaus...

 
 
 

About pedrovay2003one of us since 2:15 PM on 11.14.2006

Name: Peter
Home State: New York
Currently Residing In: Utah
Birthday: October 13th, 1985 (I'll always secretly consider the NES to have been a five-day late birthday present to me from Nintendo.)
Degree: Communication (with a writing emphasis)

I'm a Mass Communication/Journalism graduate from the University of Utah, which I'm starting to question, since it was a tough field to get into even before the economy went down the toilet. I love writing; Not only do I consider it my passion, but I also believe it's an invaluable skill for this socially-connected age in which we live. Writing about video games brings me more joy than I can even describe in words, which is saying a lot, considering.

As far as video games go, I've been a gamer since I was two years old. I try to play whatever interests me, despite what other people think of those games. I suppose I consider myself to be "obsessed" with gaming, but not in the sense that all I want to do is beat games. I'm fascinated with the industry as a whole, and in some way, shape or form, I'd love to be a part of it professionally someday.
