I like to think of myself as an avid competitive Yu-gi-oh player, and next week is Yugioh Championship Series Philadelphia, so I'm currently getting ready for that.

Now you may think I'm a nobody, but i have some big shoes to fill.

this was the deck I used to top this tournament, however since September, several cards have become banned, so I made a new deck to try my hand in: I'll finish uploading that one tomorrow.  

Any of you guys follow any card games competitively? It can be a lot of fun :) Travel the country/meet new people/ play a common interest game! :D

Nintendo 3DS

This epic gaming device is going to turn heads.  Everyone in the know will buy one when it comes out circa next March.  However, people are disparaging over the current assumption on prices.  If you do some research, you can see that Yen to dollar prices for Nintendo Products fluctuates.  The Price tag is currently set for 25,000 Yen.  However, Nintendo always markets products as if its 1.100th regardless of economic stability.  So don't worry humble fanboys, we should be getting ready to pay $250, not the speculated $300.

On to games, the two I'm looking forward to most are:

Star Fox 64 3DS

    This is going to be an epic game.  Who doesn't remember the fun they had opening this game up when it first came out eons ago for the Nintendo 64?  The first real game that combined strategy, good graphics, sound, and an awesome storyline.  Sadly there has yet to be a real sequel to this adventure, but no one minds a re-make!  The graphics are being redone to look HDish, fighting style will be the same with a revamped control system.  Fans old and new will be sure to enjoy.

The Legend of Zelda OoT 3DS

          While this game has been out for a while, it is still to this day my favorite game.  I remember as a kid being physically scared to continue playing this game at times, and I think thats what makes the gameplay more realistic.  Mind you, I never expect anyone to ever run into giant monsters, but if you can feel attached to a storyline or gameplay in any manner, then the creators of the game did there part to ensure the legacy of there game lives on throughout the years.  Through the various demos of this game, gameplay looks so good.  Through the use of just a handheld can warrant such graphics is unfathomable.  I guarantee this will be one of the most sought after launch titles for the Nintendo 3DS.


Playing on Pokerstars currently name "Th3 Caveman" trying to win some money i'm stuck playing in "Double or Nothing" Tournaments.  Currently playing the 10.60$ level, very interesting.

Tournament starts with 10 people, all 1,500$ in chips, 10 min blind increases.  Top 5 of the tournament Double there money.  Gonna have fun with this a little.

So far have been dogged several times, such as my pocket J's run into Aces, back to back in one tournament.  Like how is that even possible? lol

First Entry

I will upload more tonight, just want to say hello! My name is Mike and this blog may be a little bit random at times, but i'll post what ever may be relevant to my interests or that i want to convey.  Please follow, and always check back for more. Thanks!
