Portland is a Fantastic City.

I'm here in Portland for the first time ever, visiting my sister. I only live about seven hours away (In Sacramento, CA), So I dont know why I've never come here before. It's a beautiful city for the most part, the food is great, and it has the biggest fucking book store I have ever seen in my life.

But the best part? I found out this evening Portland Oregan is one of the few cities in America playing The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters. I'm going to go see it tomorrow and then I'll finally know why it' such a highly rated movie. I can't wait!

Has anyone else seen it?

I think the only bad thing about this city is the computer that they provide at the Holiday Inn. Its keyoard is busted, so I have to go back and constanly edit everthing I type. here's an example: I typed this last paragraph and pasted it below before editing. Terrible!

About BenHaskettone of us since 12:32 AM on 03.02.2007

My name is Ben. This is my blog.

I enjoy working in Adobe Flash when I have the time and I've churned out a few websites as a result. I call myself a gamer, although I'm admittedly a bit of a fanboy; you could print "Nintendo" on a roll of toilet paper and I'd bid for that shit on eBay.

Seriously though, I play a lot of games and my platform of choice right now is the DS. There are a ton of sidescrollers and traditional RPGs that I remember playing a lot when I was younger. Better yet, I missed a lot of games on the Super Nintendo back in the day (they were like $70 or something) and a big trend on the DS right now is remaking and re-releasing them for this generation of gamers. I eat that shit up. Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Shiren the Wanderer FTW.

My Top Seven Favorite Game Franchises:

1. Dragon Quest
2. Half-Life
3. Mario (excluding some)
4. Castlevania
5. Metroid
6. Ace Attorney
7. Resident Evil

Some of my favorite games (In no particular order):

Paper Mario, Xenogears, Okami, the entire Resident Evil Series, Super metroid, Metroid Prime, Metroid Prime 2, Secret of Mana, Illusion of Gaia, The World Ends With You, Mario Kart DS, Kirby Canvas Curse, Super Mario Galaxy, Fire Emblem: Path of radience, No More Heroes, Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros' Treasure, Tactics Ogre: Knight of Lodis, Dr. Mario, Devil's Crush, Ninja gaiden (NES), Kingdom Hearts, Dragon Quest Heros: Rocket Slime, the Phoenix Wright series, Hotel Dusk, The Longest Journey, Breath of Fire III, Half-Life 2, Lock's Quest, Henry Hatsworth, Rhythm Heaven, and many others that I just can't think of right now...
