One 1/4 Heart Piece Away From Death: My quickly diminishing loyalty for Nintendo

The state of Nintendo: Part 1   by Ed “Alpha” Reyes   $17, 500. That’s approximately how much I’ve spent during my life time on Nintendo products ranging from hardware and software to clothing and toys, or the equivalent of a new 2013 Honda Civic.

Miyamoto Coliseum: Chuck Norris vs. Steven Seagal

written by Ed “Alpha” Reyes Two of Hollywood’s most respected actors step in to the Coliseum to engage in mortal combat. Academy award winners Chuck Norris, and Steven Seagal. Okay, okay, so maybe these two are about as relevant to film as the McRib is to cuisine (no offense to the delicious McRib), and their acting skills leave much to be desired, but they are icons none the less. Stupid Chuck Norris jokes aside, we’ll make this a battle to see who’s the better Hollywood action star.   Gentlemen, shake Read more…
