So yesterday was the launch day for the PlayStation5. I, of course, picked one up. I have had a PlayStation console on launch for every release since the PS2. My brother Casey rode a BMX bike in some light rain to GameStop for me on Th...


I'm waiting for the game to finish downloading. With default stats and only free skate, I knocked out a million point trick for a big trophy.

About darrenhupkeone of us since 6:03 PM on 02.18.2011

Videogame book maker. Comic writer and seller. Podcast host. Audio & sound designer. Dad.

I've created sound effects for indie games and I am always looking to join others to help create games.

I've also written a number of comics. I have self-published my own books and been published in a few comic anthologies.

I'll occasionally post blogs titled PAPERBOY, and this is my attempt to marry my two favorite hobbies. I compare a game to a comics series and my goal is to turn on non-comic readers and gamers to stories they'll most likely love if they are into said games. Look for more of these coming soon!

Favorite Games:
1. Final Fantasy VII (I know...)
2. Castlevania Symphony of the Night
3. Super Mario 64
4. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
