About Me

I'm a former IT guy, who then became a former retail video game salesperson, who then moved on to be a former college student studying game art & design, then formally transitioned into a former tech writer for a robotic toy company, who is now simultaneously looking to be a former factory worker and former retail drone. You won't find me on Xbox Live Gold very much, because I don't have the time to memorize every little map on Halo 20X6 (or whatever they're selling during the time you read this) just so that I can be called obscene names by 10 year-olds and other people who should be systematically beaten with electrified axes. I frequently shop the XBL arcade and Indie games without any real genre restrictions, other than the fact that I generally like my platformers with items to acquire (Castlevania, Bionic Commando), my action RPGs with co-op (Deathspank and not a lot else), and my fighting games sprite-based (Marvel vs. Capcom 2, Castle Crashers). I can forgive independent games for their flaws if they move me in some way (Miner: Dig Deep), or if I like what they tried to do (too many to mention), but I cannot readily forgive uninspired or overly derivative games (no more Robotron clones or tower defense games, please).

(That's what you get for calling me an idiot!)...

Get ready to crash and burn!

WHUP WHUP WHUP! In the vast universal dimension of nerdy hobbies, the cream of the nerdy crop is radio control helicopter flying. There are few entirely pointless activities one can participate in that are as expensive, potentially dangerous, and still extremely boring. In recent years, the field has been watered down to toys that are easy to fly, cheap, and, well, safe. Rotor brings all the fun of pointless helicopter flight to your Xbox for...
