The first game he remembers playing is Shining Force II on the Genesis. It gets no better from there, folks. Fighting game lover and RPG freak, most of his reviews will be from those genres. He also posts opinion pieces.

Executive Director at Rising Shark
"You've gotta ask one question... Do you know gaming?"

No, but really, games have been his life for longer than he remembers. First game was the original Warcraft on PC, and the list goes on... and on... and on. He prefers Action-oriented RPGs with story and loves Strategy games of almost all types. If you ever spent a full day of pure gaming, then you might have something in common with this nutball.

Don't mind me, I haven't set up my profile. Oh whoa was me, I haven't done anything on the site.

This guy is new, give him a bit to actually do anything and set a profile. -- Bobby King, Founder of Rising Shark
