Specialities: RPGs, FPSs, RTSs, and the occasional MMORPG.

Enmities: Anything stealthy, no matter how hard I try I always want to jump right in and cut someone up in Assassin's Creed... They aren't too fond of that.

Current Game Systems: Xbox 360, PC, iOS

Still Have: I don't have any of my old systems anymore.... I miss my old GBC.

Dream Game: I love Star Wars games. I would love another KOTOR type game maybe with a bit of first person in it like the old Jedi Knight games but with the upgraded graphics of today and a better story line.

Additional Gaming Cred:

I've had multiple systems from many companies and have always stuck with Microsoft (Xbox). Oh, and for handheld Nintendo rules. Hands down. I don't care how old I get, Pokemon is something that I have played and would probably play again just for nostalgia's sake.
