Hello there GIO!
Let's see, some obligatory personal details are in order I suppose. I'm 35 and have been gaming for as long as I can remember. Previous systems include but aren't limited to the TI 94, Atari, NES, Genesis, SNES, Turbographix16, Saturn, Playstations 1, 2, and 3, several 360s, I forgot the Dreamcast, the N64, the Gamecube, and all sorts of portables up to and including the PSVITA. I prefer action/adventure titles or rpgs in the vein of the Uncharted series, Elder Scrolls series, Fallout series, Grand Theft Auto series, Final Fantasy series, and any number of similar titles. My gaming primarily takes place on my Sony systems these days as I'm a sucker for their exclusives.

I'm a very active member of the blogging community here and would like to give a few shout-outs
The bloggers and readers here are some of the most courteous and thoughtful people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. A few that deserve special recognition are: Saint, for all that he does to hold the community together, Levon, for his new role as a mod and some really great blogs, Jolt the Cynic, because he's crazy enough to laugh at what I write, Ace13, for bringing a female perspective to the joint and not ridiculing the rest of us for being typical men, MojoMonkey12, also for his new mod role as well as for that undefinable trait of bringing us all together a bit more just by being there, Noobtubin8ter, for sharing my love for The Walking Dead and XCOM, and Stranger because he writes some great blogs and shares my love for The Wheel of Time. Adding to the list: Darthcarbonite for being a stand-up dude, quasiconundrum for being such an active member of the blogging group through great contributions and a huge amount of comments and feedback, and thegodofwine7 for being so able to gather things I like into enjoyable to read groups!

Screenshots of upcoming games I really want to play!
I'm hoping Ni No Kuni turns out to be the story-heavy, high-def 'Dragon Quest' I've been waiting for. It looks to be phenomenal and I really dig both Ghibli and Level-5.
What's another month when we've already been waiting for Bioshock Infinite for as long as we have. It looks amazing and I can't wait to visit Columbia.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for uber-violence, button-mashing, and ranking skills so Gof of War: Ascensionjust keeps looking better!
They had me at Quantic Dream. Previous works of theirs such as Indigo Prophecy and Heavy Rain are among my favorites so Beyond: Two Souls has me very intrigued.
And last but certainly not least is the Uncharted, Resident Evil 4 mash-up The Last of Us.
