Sorry, but I haven't yet shared the information about myself that would typically display here. Check back later to see if that changes, or if I instead choose to remain an enigma.
Once upon a time, hardcore gamers reigned supreme. Then the casual gamer appeared. To accomidate this inferior being, gaming nowadays has become more mainstreamed that with the exception of the occasional challenge (e.g. Ninja Gaiden Black on Ninja Master mode) or import, one can literally breeze through todays movie-fests, all to sate the fragile ego of the casual gamer. You know when you're speaking to a casual gamer when:
-He's never heard of any other RPG series besides Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior.
-He buys the same sports title every year.
-He associates shooters with Halo rather than Thunderforce III, Darius Gaiden or Contra: Hard Corps.
-He thinks Tekken is a good fighting game.
-And that Metal Gear Solid is a good stealth game.
Ikaruga: Brilliant shooter. You've probably already heard of it. Great premise in that there are two types of enemy bullet, white and black, and you can choose which one you want to dodge. Naturally the game compensates by taking the number of bullets you'd expect to see and doubling it. Production values abound, and this is truly one of the best titles for Dreamcast or Gamecube.
