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!

playstation_prime_01Gaming fans probably took notice of of the SEGA Mega Drive Megatron Transformer that Takara Tomy is releasing in October. Autobot fanboys were probably up in arms about the lack of gaming representation on their end… However just not too long ago, Takara Tomy announced and released concept art for their forthcoming Sony PlayStation Optimus Prime (which REALLY got me excited)…

If you’ve been following the site or my social media, you’ll know I am a big fan of the PlayStation brand. Everything from the games and hardware, to lifestyle things such as PlayStation sneakers, etc. I just love the brand that I grew up with. So when I woke up early this morning…

Today, courtesy of Radio Kaikan we have our first actual photos of the work in progress Autobot leader, donning the classic PlayStation styling.

The Transformers X PlayStation Optimus Prime is slated for release in early 2015.

fave_manga_anime_girlsMy friend VampyBitMe challenged me to list/write about my favorite female manga & anime characters the other day. I thought long and hard about it and was surprised at how difficult it was for me to come up with a top ten. I couldn’t settle on just ten, actually I easily had 20-30 characters in mind, but I thought it was important to list the ones that really stuck out for me. In no specific order, check out my picks for best anime & manga gals! Click below for the full list…

DSC00447I don’t know what it is lately… I used to dread time passing by. The feeling of getting older and life going on. Recently though I’ve been feeling extremely happy and content with life as it happens. It is with great pleasure and thanks to my friends & those around me, that I am feeling as good as I am now.

There’s no real point to this post other than a small update showing that life is good and there is always something to look forward to. Keep happy an avoid situations and people that just suck your life dry. Take care everyone!

comic-con_panelI had a blast at this year’s Comic-Con International. I took the entire work week off from my Mad Catz duties and decided to focus on having a good con. It was a good move on my end as usually my July month is filled with stress and planning for a number of events and shows. We just got back from EVO 2014 a few weeks ago so going into Comic-Con I was a bit excited just to see some friends that I only usually see/hang out with once a year.

This year I hosted another panel for Bandai Namco Games. Working closely with the TEKKEN Project Team and big boss Katsuhiro Harada is always an honor… This year was focused entirely on their upcoming free-to-play PC title, Rise of Incarnates and the forthcoming TEKKEN 7. Here is a link to the panel, just in case you missed it!

Other than the above responsibilities… My Comic-Con is just pure enjoyment now. I don’t care about the panels, the exclusives or any of that as much as I care about pleasing my team, loved ones and those I care about more. Thanks for letting happy flow, Comic-Con!

Don’t let this post make you think I’ve lost my geeky touch though. I can get shit done at Comic-Con like no other! Until next year! 😀
