Who is MechaKingMinos?

I work. I play. By day I’m a creative professional, husband, and father. By night I play video games and read comic books. Neither of my personalities eats his vegetables.

I grew up playing arcade games on the boardwalks of the Jersey Shore, and always had home consoles: Intellivision, NES, SNES, N64, Playstation 2, Gamecube, GBA…

As an “adult”, I don’t have tons of time to commit to gaming, so I make the most out of the time I get. I love arcade-style games that I can pick up and play. I like retro games, and new games with a retro flare. First-person shooters are cool, but I’m still not as comfortable with a controller as I am with a mouse and keyboard. I’m not big on sports games, yet I have owned several editions of Madden. I dislike driving sims, but love Mario Kart. My current systems:

  • Nintendo WiiU – Primarily for Nintendo first-party games
  • Nintendo 3DS – At least half my gaming time is done on the DS/3DS
  • Playstation 4 – For the serious hardcore games Nintendo doesn’t have. ID: MechaKingMinos

Look for me, MechaKingMinos, when playing online. And go easy on me. I’m not as good as I should be.
