Ive been gaming since Mario jumped on his first turtle, I’ve saved countless digital worlds and even destroyed a few. On your team I’m your best friend and if Im not. Well I’m the guy you love to to kill. My motto is get the mission done no matter the odds.

My dream job is to be a crime fighter….but I’ll settle for video game journalist any day.

What my heroes look like

I have a very love/hate relationship with games that let me make my own character. I think it's awesome to be able to make whatever hero or villain you want. I love games that give many choices, but lately I've started to question why I always pick a male human. A white one at that. I swear I can't tell you how many times my characters came out looking like Ben Affleck or Russell Crowe. So am I secretly racist to playing other races or genders in games?

Mayhem+Murder+Cars=Good Times

  Twisted Metal it has been too long! I've missed driving my car through crazy destructive environments, while I'm unloading missiles, freeze rays and bombs into my opponents cars. Everything you expect in a Twisted Metal game makes a return here and so do a couple of new additions and tweaks.

My Definition of a Classic

 One day before I die I would like to leave behind my top 10 all time greatest games I had the pleasure of playing and replaying. Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty is defiantly on this list, I just recently picked up the Metal Gear Solid HD Collection for PS3. I played through MGS2 again for probably the tenth time in my life, to me this game is the definition of a classic. The graphics hold up surprisingly well for a PS2 game, the story is probably one of the deepest craziest things since The Matrix. The mechanics are simple but leave you with enough room to play the way you see fit, as much as I hate being caught by guards I love the little skirmishes I get into with them.

The Price of Online Warfare

  Online multi-player has changed alot for video games, it has become quite the investment to play online and I’m not talking about time. The latest trend I have noticed for online multi player games, is “Season Passes”. When you purchase one of these passes it entitles you to the majority of DLC coming down the pipe line for your game.
