My first review, Resident Evil 5

I actually wrote this some time back, about a week after the game came out. That may not have been that long ago, but this review is nothing like my others. Honestly its down right terrible and funny, I think. I have come along way since th...

New Super Mario Bros. Wii Review

I got the idea from a few reviews I read, that New Super Mario Bros. Wii, is not so new. Then I finally got a chance to play through the game. It turned out to be more "new" the I expected. It may be a 2-D platformer like the others, but it...


Love/Hate Innovation

I love innovation when it comes to the gaming industry. Seeing something new and fresh is just a great sensation... at the same time, heavy failure seems to come with innovation. I hate innovative games that are boring. I hate what third pa...


Batman: Arkham Asylum Review

I have strayed away from the Batman games that have come out in recent years, due to thier... Well you know, crapiness. But in the dark night comes something gamers and Batman fans alike have waited for... A really good Batman game. Batman ...


If I only had one

I was thinking one day about all the handheld systems and consoles I have had in the past years. I wondered to myself, if I only had one, what whould it be? This question obviously doesn't apply to fanboys, we know what your awnser is. So i...


Hardcore and Casual

I have heard these two terms so much these days. What people think of games now a days is just messed compaired to what it use to be, or rather still should be. I have been around the internets enough to know what most people think of these...


Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story Review

I can describe the awesomeness of this game in one word, simply epic. I believe its one of the best DS titles to date. I had such a blast playing this game, not at one point was I ever bored of it. Its been awhile since I played such a good...


About RetroSoldierone of us since 4:05 PM on 12.21.2009

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
