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?

      I was hoping we'd get something like this. Pizza dough is easy to make, and it's nice to have a video showing that it really is that easy. And delicious!

      This makes me hungry for pizza and it makes me want to play TMNT on the NES.

        TMNT The Manhattan Project is still my favorite turtles brawler.
