I have been gaming for as long as I can remember. I started with the timeless classic Mario Bros. and have been working my way up since. I started gaming originally due to a lack of good hand coordination but while improving my skills, I also found my hobby. I believe that the gaming industry is the biggest entertainment industry right now. I plan on watching it grow into something great and will be a part of it till the day I die. Favorite Games: The Darkness (Series), Jak and Daxter (Series), Metal Gear Solid (Series), Halo (Series), Gears of War (Series), Shadow of the Colossus, inFAMOUS 2, Shadows of the Damned, Resident Evil 4, Rock Band 3, Mario Kart and Alan Wake.

[News] Gotham City Impostors Attacked with 105 Micro Transactions

This morning started out like any other morning for me. I booted up my Xbox 360 and started to browse the new content that was released today.

I shrugged it off and continued to scroll only to find that most of the space was taken up by this DLC. I investigated it further and realized that all this DLC [...]

[Review] NFL Blitz

I remember the arcades in the nineties. The loud Dance Dance Revolution machines, the House of the Dead light gun games and then… there were the Blitz cabinets. Blitz was the king of the arcade extreme sports games in the late nineties to the early two-thousand. However, the Blitz franchise has been in a slump sadly in the past few installments.
