It began with a hand-me-down Sega Genesis from his cousin and since then, he's been fascinated with video games. He enjoys the blissful platforming of the 16-bit era and the rich adventures of the 64-bit era. Favorite games include Metroid Prime, Banjo-Tooie, and practically every 16-bit Sonic the Hedgehog title.

  • "Alan Wake was definitely a contender for my GOTY in 2010, but I can't help but be skeptical for a "standalone" installment. After playing through the main game and both downloadable episodes, I can wholeheartedly say that there are many more questions than answers in Alan Wake's mythology, and I'd prefer some form of resolution before pioneering this new project. Still, I'm excited."
  • "Though I was a little underwhelmed by Sonic Colors for Wii, I can't help but get excited for Sonic Generations. It seems to have a solid balance of speed and precision, just what Sonic's about. Can't wait to play it."
  • "Eternal Darkness is probably one of the most underrated games of its generation. I was lucky enough to find a copy at a local record store and it was worth it. I don't know if we'll ever see a continuation of this game, considering the current circumstances of Silicon Knights, but it doesn't stop Eternal Darkness from being an incredible game. Thank you for covering this gem. Awesome work."
  • "I have a 250 GB hard drive and haven't even filled up half of it right now. I guess I can see it for those who have a large amount of disc-based games to install. Still..."
  • "I own both this game on Virtual Console and Gunstar Super Heroes on my GBA. Both are fantastic. Great work on covering this underrated, but intense series."
