About the Webmaster

I'm a writer and coder proficient in the English language, html, xhtml, and css. I also know a little bit of php, javascript, Java, C++, C#, XNA, and SDL. I can do a few things in Photoshop, too. On top of all that, I have some minor video editing experience with Sony Vegas. I use some of these skills and my incredible tenacity to keep this website going. Someday, I hope to take over the world.

My favorite video game genre is the platformer, which probably explains why I've reviewed so many platform games. As far as consoles go, my favorite console of all time is the Super Nintendo, but the Sega Genesis is a close second. When it comes to portable systems, my favorites will always be the original Game Boy and Game Gear. This website was a result of my passion for the games released in the 16-bit era, although I've expanded the scope of the site to include a couple of other eras, as well. Don't be afraid to send me an e-mail.
