About

Alex is the name. I'm 21 and a senior Gator at the University of Florida. Growing up in a Cuban culture, one demented hobby of mine as a kid was scaring my fellow Cuban classmates into thinking that Fidel Castro was my grandfather. I'm into a lot of things but some of my favorites are Pokemon, Mass Effect, Persona, football (DAAAAAAAA BEARS), Doctor Who, and Power Rangers. Please send me stupid stuff on Twitter @thecastroregime #15 Brandon Marshall is my babydaddy.

New Enemy Front Screenshots Released, Limited Edition Detailed

Games based in a World War II setting aren’t quite as popular as they used to be. But that doesn’t mean that people are willing to let them die out either. Namco Bandai Games has released a few new screenshots of their upcoming WWII shooter Enemy Front. I don’t think that WWII games will be making a comeback anytime soon, but who knows, maybe Enemy Front will be the game to turn that around. If nothing else, the game definitely [...]

Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut Review: Breathing New Life into an Old Genre

Strike Suit Zero: Director’s Cut is an arcade space shooter by Born Ready Games that improves upon its original release. In purpose, the game seeks to revive and improve the feel of classic space combat games. Deceptively simple in scope, Strike Suit Zero is a fun game to have on-hand for spontaneous play. At first glance, Strike Suit Zero is just a simple arcade, dogfighting space shooter. And while that sort of appraisal would certainly not be wrong, there is [...]
