    Favorite SNES/Genesis games?

    We had a SuperNES but it was already being overshadowed by the immortal Playstation when we bought ours. The games that we played on the thing were Mortal Kombat 3 and Final Fantasy VI (Final Fantasy III in the US). It was all fun but, whenever we played the MK3, it was black and white because...

    My first experience in video gaming came in the form of the Atari game system. It was such a cool machine during those times. we owned a couple consoles when I was a little boy. I remember I favorite games were Yar's Revenge, Pac-man, Haunted House, River Raid, Battleship and my all time fave...

    Favourite old school controller?

    My favorite controller will always be the Atari Joystick. It just gave you the freedom to move around quicker. It was more than a toggle stick, it made you more mobile in whatever game you were playing. Of course, the option to fire at an enemy or jump was somewhat limited as it only had one...

    Have you ever hacked/cheated in a game?

    Every gamer has, I mean, during the golden days of NES, the Konami Code (the immortal up-up-down-down-left-left right code) was already there. Paving the way for gamers everywhere to tweak the capabilities of their characters in order to get passed the game or a stage. It was because of...

    What do you watch on Youtube?

    By default, without the influence of other people (and the very reason that got me to know what Youtube is), is to watch music videos, most commonly old, rock videos. From 60s (sometimes 50s) music clips to mid 90s. As a rock n roll fan, that is my haven, my sanctuary. I love it!

    Old School Gameboy Games

    The only game boy game I've played was the gameboy version of Yuu Yuu Hakusho. That's it! I thought it was a lot of fun actually. The graphics are pretty much as you'd expect with the technology available in those days. The game itself was straightforward enough and easy.

    What movie or show would you like to see turned into a game?

    I'd go for TBBT (The Big Bang Theory) in videogame mode would be fun. To play a group of nerds doing an adventure kind of mission will be interesting. I do hope the game would combine the adventure spirit of run and tumble games with the puzzle-solving-geeky stuff of science-inspired shows. I...

    Stranded on a Deserted Island with Only 1 Game

    If I were stuck in an island with only one videogame, I'd stick with the original Megaman. I've always loved this game. Hopefully, the rescue team will arrive just in time before I waste Doctor Wiley. Truth be told, I have never gotten past Fireman in that game, but if I was stuck in a tiny...

    Best Party Video Games

    I'd go for the Just Dance series of games. Now, that's a party game! The music, the dancing, the euphoria of gaining points for doing them, that's where videogames and partying come together. One of the most successful dance-o-rama games ever.

    Legend Of Zelda Vs. Super Mario

    Both of these games are classic! Perhaps, even that is an understatement. Considering their success and the millions of games that were spawned because of them. In the beginning of Nintendo's life, these two games were its flag bearers. Even now, if you asked anybody which character they...

    Why are Wiis going so cheap now?

    Actually, one of the reasons why I bought the Wii was because of my wife, but this console sort of grew on me. The videogames for the console were great, especially the physical ones that involved movement or dancing. It was a fun console and I would consider it groundbreaking too. Even people...

    Sims Games

    Simcity 3000 was my favorite Sims game ever. I love building and maintaining cities in the comforts of my own home. You select the plot of land to make your city, sign treaties, lay the utilities such as waterworks, powerplants and whatnot and have people live and thrive in it. Love it whenever...

    How big of a problem do you think gaming addiction is?

    Addiction to videogames is part of this culture and generation. It is something that we have to live with. My advise for those who wants to get their addictions sorted out should at least look for other avenues of fun, recreation and fulfillment. Why not try another hobby/ies aside from the...

    gaming on a budget...

    As long as there are kids, videogames will always be a source of fun, entertainment and action. I don't think we are going to see any slump as far as sales of games and gaming consoles are concerned. Yes, the prices might seem stellar right now, but it never stopped kids before in buying them...

    Do You Like/Love To Read?

    I love books like everybody else. It exercises your imagination and relaxes your body. After a hectic and problematic day, it is really refreshing to just sit back, relax and read a boo, let your imagination guide you and just get lost to what you are reading. Reads from Bourdain and Caleb Carr...
