I’m a huge fan of gaming, having lived and breathed games since I was a child. Over the years I’ve amassed a wide taste in games and experienced some real works of art, and complete trainwrecks. I own a PS3, Xbox 360 and a Wii, as well as the latest major handhelds – I always try to be up to date with the latest consoles.
I like to review games that are both new and old – I dont like to see old games going forgotten when they’re still good! I’m a big fan of Final Fantasy, Metal Gear Solid and Castlevania. Generally my favourite genre’s are third-person action titles, fighting games and RPG’s - I grew up with platformers like Sonic, but they don’t make ‘em like they used to!
I must admit I have a soft spot for Capcom as a developer – releasing a myriad of amazing AAA titles including Devil May Cry, Resident Evil, Lost Planet, Street Fighter, God Hand and Okami. While I judge all games on both their good and bad points (such as Capcom’s recent tendancy to release a lot of DLC that could arguably have been included in the initial product), I find that I can always expect a solid gaming experience from them. Square-Enix have also spoiled me with the likes of Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts – although I have found that I tend to judge RPGs harshly in comparison to the high quality of the FF series, especially VII – X.
While I’m primarily a solo gamer (I feel stories are told better that way), one of my favourite gaming passtimes is duking it out with Garv in Street Fighter. You can be sure that every time we meet – we’ll be pitting Ryu against Bison, or Dante against Deadpool. And it never gets old.
It’s good to be here, I hope you enjoy reading my articles as much as I enjoy writing them. If I’m not writing you can bet I’ll be gaming – occasionally I get so hooked to playing I forget to write about it! But I do my best…
