About Me

I'm a musician and occasional multi-media artist. I'm interested in art in general - particularly comics, games, movies, and animation. I am biased towards sci-fi, art films, and psychedelia, and I like the X-Men more than is reasonable.

I'm a n00b to Armored Core and in over my head a bit. I currently have AC3: Silent Line and AC5: Verdict Day and am struggling with both, though the Begginer's Guide to ACVD has helped me a lot and I plan to revisit Silent Line again soon.

I haven't done as much gaming as a lot of players. There was a stretch of about 20 years when the newest console I owned was a SNES and my computers were always breaking (I'm a musician, there's not much money in it, and the equipment is expensive to purchase and maintain, so gaming wasn't prioritized). However I currently have a ColecoVision (w/ Atari 2600 adapter), NES, SNES, Wii (GameCube compatible), Dreamcast, PS2 (PS1 compatible), PS3, and iPhone 6 at my disposal, as well as a PC I'm slowly trying to get up to snuff, so I'm making up for lost time.

I don't have the most nimble thumbs (old school Castlevanias still torment me, and I won't be entering any fighting game tournaments in this lifetime) and I usually gravitate towards slower paced games anyway (RPGs, adventure games, IF, Metroidvanias) but something about mech games has always fascinated me so I'm giving it my best. In addition to Silent Line and ACVD, I recently acquired Virtual On: Oratorio Tangram (no twinsticks yet though) as well as both the PC and PS1 versions of Mech Warrior 2 (neither of which have I played yet, AC is getting the most attention of the mech games right now followed distantly by VOOT).

Favorite games include Zelda (original and A Link To The Past), Super Metroid, Castlevania (any 2D entry I can lay hands on), Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Final Fantaay (especially SNES and PS1 era), Ico, Shadow Of The Colossus, Elder Scrolls (Oblivion & Skyrim), Shadowrun (SNES version, Shadowrun Returns, Dragonfall), as well as old adventure games (Quest For Glory, Sam & Max, Grim Fandango, I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream) and interactive fiction (Anchorhead, The King of Shreds & Patches).
