Gaming & Commentary History
I’ll start with gaming history…for me, it started when I was 4 or 5 years old, getting my first fat chunky Gameboy (it was red and awesome), with the game 5 in 1 (flags, manhole, juggle and 2 others…Following this game, I stuck to my portable collection, collecting Pokemon games, slowly growing addicted to them. Even now, I’m still a huge Nintendo gamer (playing my DS) which is awesome, because Pokemon is still good. Not long after getting my gameboy, I found the Sega Master System in a cupboard.
The hours spent playing Sonic the Hedgehog or Alex the Kidd just flew by, many memories though…Especially flying that chopper or battling those scissors/paper/rock people. The next console I had was a super Nintendo. This was the best. Bomberman and Super Mario World all day, every day. Later, the Nintendo 64 came around, thanks to my uncle, I was given one for Christmas. The game…Kobe Bryants NBA. It was garbage, but I managed to get games like Pokemon Stadium, Banjo Kazooie/Tooie and the Legend of Zelda. The amount of time playing through that goddam water temple is ridiculous.
Nintendo 64 was great, allowed me to play pokemon on the Nintendo WITH my gameboy pokemon. I remember having the N64 for a while, along with my multiple gameboys, grabbing a GameBoy Advanced and Gameboy Advanced SP. This was a time of lots of Pokemon, the developments of Leaf Green and Ruby meant (and to date) over 500 hours of Pokemon. Playstation 2 was my next system, and god was that sweet. Especially being introduced to the Ratchet and Clank series, Sonic Heroes and God of War. Some of the best games, not to mention Crash TagTeam Racing.
Not much has happened since the ps2, still got it, just playing Guitar Hero. Now I’m mainly a PC gamer, playing Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2 and Counterstrike:Source primarily, although I did just get Heroes of Newerth, which is epic.
As for commentating history, my first match was M3G4HURTZ versus v!x. A great game, which was lead by Dave, with Zombie and myself on the side. We saw some good strats, had a good time casting and made some people happy. This also lead to the development of SuperLouis. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to cast as much as I would like because this is the infamous HSC year, but there will definitely be plenty more casting coming from me in the future.
