About Me!

By RickoT

Hey All, thanks for stopping by. My name is Rick

I am originally from Long Island, NY, but I currently reside near Seattle, WA with my wife Nicole.

It all started about 25 years ago with my grandfather. He was a PC Enthusiast of the 80’s, and being that I spent most of my time with my grandparents those days, he was a major influence in my interests. I started out simple on my Commodore 64 and my T1000, then moved on to higher ground. I still carry around memories of pulling memory chips of 8088 motherboards so we can get a whopping 256k of RAM, and hanging out with him while we tried to wrestle with space pirates in Space Quest 3. This is where my interests in computers began. At 8, I was writing simple basic programs.

I am an avid gamer. My interest in gaming evolved from RPG’s like Space Quest, into other games sported by my Atarii 2600 and my NES. Over time of course I picked up such obsessions as Legend of Zelda and every Mario anything I could get my hands on. As time progressed NES turned to SNES, turned to Playstation, PS2, Xbox, Xbox 360, Wii and PS3/PS4. I now have an extensive library of games ranging from the Lego games collection (Indiana Jones, Star Wars, Batman, and Harry Potter) to the God of War Collection and Assassins Creed.

Of course, I cannot leave out my LOVE for gadgets. I LOVE GADGETS! I cannot live without my smartphone, my tab, and my camera. I will throw up a review every time I buy something cool and share it with you all. Maybe I can even get my hands on some new things as the site grows and do some reviews.

I will be regularly streaming games like Minecraft, League of Legands, Diablo 3 ROS, Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone, and whatever else strikes my fancy. Want to see me play something! Just let me know!

Favorite Classics: Metroid, Legend of Zelda : A Link to the Past, Super Mario 3, RC Pro AM, Sonic the Hedgehog (the original), Mega Man X, Sim City 2000,  Duke Nukem 3D, Half Life (All Episodes), Doom 3,and Prince of Persia
