PS20TH

Dear PlayStation,

It was a cold winter’s day in December of 1994 when you came into the world. I remember those times well. December 3rd. The world was busy with everything else going on at the time… but I was patiently waiting for the revolution that you led.

Street Fighter the movie with Jean Claude Van Damme as Guile (haha) was just released in theaters. It was cool to me at the time, but what did I know then? TLC was at the top of the US Billboard charts with their single “Creep” and just like you, they were creepin’ on the down low. I was but a 12 year old boy and even though you wouldn’t release until September 9th the following year. Your marketing team was right. URNOTE.

I never fathomed the idea that 20 years — 20 MEMORABLE years of GAMING and ENJOYMENT — would be because multiple failed attempts to work with other companies in creating this new medium of gaming, the PSX. Michael Jordan was quoted saying that “I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” Well, Michael Jordan is also considered the greatest of all time. Like Mike (heh), I consider you guys to be the greatest gaming company of all time.

It is because of the PlayStation that I seriously pursued a career in journalism and learning more about the gaming industry. It is because of the PlayStation that I have found success in the gaming industry and I credit all that to your little revolutionary console. Thanks for everything. Mr. Kutaragi, if you ever read this or even if Mr. Yoshida reads this. Thanks for keeping the brand going throughout the years.

I’ll be tweeting all about it today, I just know it.

Your PlayStation fan,

MarkMan

P.S. – I’m definitely going to try and import the 20th anniversary PS4. Wow that’s so cool!

While on a short hiatus, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure – Part III: Stardust Crusaders has been *ahem* STAND-ing tall with an amazing translation from the source material. The series will continue with the climactic final part of the story starting January 2015. Check out the new teaser above!

If you’re not up to date on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, you can check out the entire series up to date OR even watch a re-edited cliffs notes version at crunchyroll NOW!

20141124-air-jordan-11-columbia-1061It’s no secret that the Air Jordan XI “Columbias” are my favorite sneaker of all time. You can imagine just HOW excited I am for the Dec. 20th release of the Air Jordan XI “Legend Blue” ! The originals were released in Feb. of 1996 and they were later retro’d in 2001. The 2001 retro did not have the original blue tint to the sole, however the 2014 version will have the iced out blue sole (which is the single thing that has me going crazy) !

P.S. – Much love if you know that old Capcom game “Legendary Wings” lol.

TE2I work with arcade sticks. Something I really like. One of the projects I worked on awhile ago was the design of the award winning Mad Catz Arcade FightStick Tournament Edition 2, the successor of the original Tournament Edition FightStick that I worked on back in 2008. The TE2 was first introduced with Killer Instinct on Xbox One but now we (at Mad Catz) are releasing it for other consoles & tying it into other games. Click below for a mini-gallery of all our TE2 FightSticks that are just about to release!
