about me

I've grown up around Nintendo consoles, whether it be the NES my parents got me as a kid in the 1980s or the Wii I purchased on launch day in November of 2006. I've played them all, through the highs (SNES, circa 1994) and lows (GameCube, circa 2006) of Nintendo's storied console history.

As a retired Nintendojo editor (now a contributor), my primary focus lies helping out with site content, including reviews and editorials. My first passion is the RPG genre, but I also have a great deal of respect for epic titles in other genres.

I used to subscribe to EGM and Nintendo Power, but nowadays I mostly give my attention to online "rags" like IGN and GameSpot

nintendo's greatest strength

At this point in history, the answer would seemingly have to be innovation. No hardware developer is pushing the bounds of innovation -- particularly with such great commercial success -- like Nintendo is.

nintendo's greatest weakness

As most fans know, Nintendo has been the weakest of the "big three" console developers in terms of third-party support. It's up to Nintendo to try and change that.

advice to nintendo

Nintendo is one of the most profitable businesses on the planet. It's hard to come up with much advice to give them, especially given the way the DS and Wii have taken over the market.
