My name is James, and I’m Tony’s brother-in-law. He seems to be ok with that. = )
It seems like it’s a good idea to start off by letting everyone know my gaming history too. The first video game exposure that I had growing up was an Apple 2, I can remember my favorite game was Ali Baba (That was the best). Then came the PC (286,386,etc.) and with that came Maniac Mansion, Castle Wolfenstein, and so on, beginning my connection to PC gaming and PC’s in general. Eventually I would play various PC titles such as: Starcraft, Diablo 1&2, Warcraft 1,2, & 3, Everquest, Battlefield (most of the series), Guild Wars, Dawn of War and many others.
The first console I had was a NES shared by my brother and I, followed by the SNES and Gameboy’s. I had a Sega Genesis for a while until the PlayStation came out and I traded up all the old systems for the new kid on the block. The original PlayStation converted me to Sony as the gaming system of choice and the PS2 locked me in. You name it and I’ve probably played it on the PS2 or have seen it in action.
When the 360 and the PS3 were coming out I was all for the PS3 it had the better system specs after all. Yet, my brother and Tony getting 360’s helped me to see the good in Microsoft, at least in the game selection and exclusive titles. (As a side note, I am still interested in the PS3 and even the PSP but having limited funds can deter curiosity) My collection of games varies from titles like Dark Sector, Viking:Battle for Asgard, and Halo 3 to Marvel Ultimate Alliance, DOA4, and Burnout: Revenge.
I am in to comics and try to follow what is going on in the Marvel and DC universe’s. So any games that have to do with superheroes will usually peak my interest. I also tend to download most of the mainstream demo’s of new games that are available on Xbox Live.
Enough about games for now I think.
Oh yea! Why Ehergeiz as a handle right? Well there is an old PS1 game called Ehrgeiz from Square that I thought the name looked cool so I figure I’d change the name a little and use it. Not too much to it but that’s where I got it from. = )
I’m looking forward to posting a bunch of different things on buttonmashing.com for everybody.
