Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

            well, I think it is "suspended" in most places right now. It's like 250 or 280 GB per month, then you pay $10 for each 50GB you go over.

          Yeah, it's very convenient having quick clips together like this to judge which titles are worth a closer look

      Nice round up.

      Except that I can't stop eye twitching....

      Buh-ehn? Wri-ehn?

      The words are BUTTON and WRITTEN. There are Ts there, please use them.

      The glottal stop instead of hard "T" thing just drives me crazy and the whole fiasco seems to be getting worse and worse.

      I'll be picking up Mega Man V on 3DS. Apparently it was the only Game Boy Mega Man to have completely original levels and bosses. It's stupid expensive on ebay now.

      Killer Is Dead is one of Suda's best, for all you PC gamers who love the outer limits of weirdness.
