|About myself:||Computer technician for a major food producer in Minneapolis by day, amateur artist and writer living in St. Paul by night, it's amazing I have any time to play games. It's in my blood, though...I've been playing computer games since my old TRS-80. |
Although you'll often find my playing CRPGs and strategy games, I'm a fan of nearly all types and used to amass a large collection of games. Unfortunately, life has forced me to consolidate my collection and many of my boxes and such are lost.
Outside of the game world, I am a student of ancient civilizations and Japanese culture, a fan of Sci-fi/fantasy, aviation and military history, a train and plane buff, and a kendo player.
Used to Have
- Commodore 128 -- When arguments arose between play time, our mom spoiled us by getting me a C128 so the C64 became my brother's.
- Tandy TRS-80 Color Computer (CoCo) -- The CoCo2 was my first personal computer. Fav games include: MegaBug, Stellar Lifeline, Peanut Butter Panic
- Commodore 64 -- The upgrade from my TRS-80. Learned BASIC on it, but mainly used the C64 for games.
- Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) -- My first console I owned. Had the original with R.O.B.
- Nintendo SNES
- Sega Genesis -- One of my favorite consoles.
- Nintendo Game Boy
- Commodore Amiga -- The Amiga has a special place in my heart. Recently bought a A500 for pure nostalgia.
- IBM PC / Compatible -- First owned IBM compatible was a 386.
- Microsoft Xbox 360
- Sony PlayStation -- Played it while house-sitting for a friend. Bought my own a few days later.
- Nintendo DS Lite -- An impulse buy before a trip in 2007.
- Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) -- Not very innovative, but even unmodded the best multifunction handheld game system out there.
- Nintendo Game Boy Advance SP -- A Christmas Gift. Advance Wars, Fire Emblem, and Harvest Moon ate much time.
