I’m J’s pal Max, also a gamer fanatic, but I don’t think even I am as hardcore as J is these days. I’ve been a Nintendo fanboy most my life and in earlier years worked at several Nintendo-centric fan sites until health issues required me to stop.

I currently have/play a 360, Wii, DS and PS2 (which is my brother’s, but he’s in no hurry to have it back). I’m also lucky enough to be married to a gamer, who kicks my ass in F-Zero, Puzzle Fighter and any other games I try to play against her.
