I felt like the Memes took up a little too much Bio space. So, just check out this website for some good humor.
Third Person: Fox loves platformers, RPG's, and puzzle games. His favorite game of all time is Donkey Kong 64. Outside of gaming, he enjoys writing reviews for games, reading, writing stories, going to concerts, and surfing. He plays volleyball and plays for the club KVC. His favorite Console is the N64 in green (not red, not blue...). He is...the Most Interesting Fox in the World.
First Person: I'm a High School Sophomore in the lovely So Cal, and I hope this doesn't come off the wrong way, but I take it totally for granted. I mean, this is how my conversations with my parents go before I drive to school. "Michael (my name), its pretty cold outside...take a jacket!" - Le Mom
"Your right mom! Its a frosty 67 degrees!" -Me
Also, the fact that Disneyland is right down the freeway makes me feel bad when I see families in T-Shirts that say "The Carter Family Reunion!"
However, this is a gaming website, so here goes my gaming bio.
"You gotta to see this game", My cousin cried the first time I went over to his house. I got started at a young age, about 5 years old. However, I never got to own a console that I could play on my own until my 6th birthday. I would watch my cousin play gems such as Donkey Kong Country, Super Metroid, and F-Zero on his State-of-the-Art SNES. ***hole never let me play, but I wanted one, and I wanted one BAD. Little did I know that Nintendo was about to unveil its new console, the N64, to the world. On February 23, 2001 (I was late to the party, I know), I unwrapped a brand spanking new Nintendo 64. My face was completely perplexed. I looked up at my Mom and Dad and said "This isn't what Johnny had. He had a grey and purple one, this is Green!"
Just as I was about to throw a huge fit, my Dad met my frustration with a smile and replied, "Michael, this is way better than Johnny's!" He ushered me upstairs to our Game Room and hooked it up to our fairly large 40" Boob Tube. He showed me a hidden present (!), a copy of Donkey Kong 64. The yellow cartridge sparked my interest, but i still needed to see it to believe it. We threw it in the console, flipped the power switch, and nothing happened (mind you, this is forever embedded into my mind). I was frustrated with him, until suddenly, the screen flickered and up popped a spinning Nintendo logo...in 3D!!! I looked down at my new Green N64...it was electrifying to look at. It wasn't boring and drab like a grey console, no, this green had personality, like it kicked down my door and told me it was going to change my life; It sure did. My mind was *** blown.
Lost in the world of DK Island, I was busy having the time of my life. The ability to switch between 5 awesome apes was utterly fantastic and the huge set of moves was amazing. I only lost interest in my N64 when my cousin, Johnny again, brought over his new GameCube console. Unfortunately, my interest suddenly peaked in it, which I didn't realize would be nearly as amazing as the N64. Also, N64 games were becoming obsolete, making me only able to own about 4 games: Donkey Kong 64, Rocket Robot on Wheels, Super Mario 64, and Mario Party. The GameCube was brand new, with titles such as Super Mario Sunshine, Mario Party 5 (hey, my family liked it), and Luigi's Mansion. I had a decision to make: Sell the N64 to get some extra money or wait until the pricy $200 dollar tag dropped. I chose the first, and on the day before my Birthday, I sold my N64 along with all of my games and controllers for a total of $100, a treasure trove for an 8 year old. My parents didn't really care about my gaming habits, so they were happy to see my decision. Little did they know that I had a master scheme of using Birthday money to buy the awesome GameCube.
The day drew near. On my 9th Birthday, I had all my friends over and pulled about $75 dollars from them which I placed in a neat jar for all of my gamecube money. I was about $20 short of buying it along with a launch title. Then, after all of my friends left, the next morning, the family came over to celebrate. After much singing and cake, I had received $50...far exceeding my expectations. Then, out of nowhere, my Uncle comes around the corner with a Box, wrapped in graphic blue Christmas paper. My heart froze, as I realized that this was the exact dimensions of the GameCube. I ripped it open and sure enough, it was a purple GameCube with a copy of Super Mario Sunshine included. I was ecstatic, jumping around and around and quickly went upstairs to unplug my N64 to put this in. Oh wait...it was at this time when it dawned on me that it was gone. My 3 years of Pure enjoyment are shattered as I discovered that my electrifying Green N64 is gone. So what did I do? Only the most rational option that a 9 year old would do: cry my eyes out. I'll never forget my Uncle's face as he witnessed my sudden change in emotion.
"Game over" I thought. I feared nothing could ever come close to the N64 and its memory making Games. After a while, I realized that the GameCube wasn't all that bad, but it was no N64 at all. I would get a Wii for Christmas, but that turned into a dust collector pretty quickly. Then, after a long 3 years of Gaming Hiatus, I saw that the PS3 had dropped to a mere $300, with the Xbox 360 at $400. I asked around, and all of my friends had PS3's instead of the pricier Xbox, which also required $50 a year for LIVE. They would talk endlessly about the graphics, games, and features of the machine, ultimately driving me to buy one for Graduation from 8th grade. I picked up Uncharted 2 for my purchase, and my world would never be the same. This game reminded me how awesome a game truly is, sparking a sudden interest in gaming all over again. I went back and played old GBC classics such as Pokemon Yellow. I researched games. I studied games marketing. All your base may belong to us, but no game would ever show me the wonder of Donkey Kong 64. So if your out there Nintendo, please remake this title on the 3DS or put it on the VC.
