Hello, hello, hello!
My name is Joey Davidson, and I’m from the latest round of writers joining the TechnoBuffalo staff. I’m also possibly the most obnoxious. Consider that my badge of honor and let’s move right along.
I’ll be covering the gaming beat here on this tech culture playground, and I plan to do so with opinionated flare. I hold no allegiances, however, and consider myself a fan of all platforms. If it plays games, chances are I either own it now or owned it once before. Except for the N-Gage; even I have my limits.
I’m currently writing and podcasting for a few different networks. You can find my words and voice on CraveOnline.com, PressTheButtons.com (as a guest podcaster) and 148Apps.com. Remember to bookmark each site and check them half as often as you check this one.
I’m a convention veteran, and I consider myself extremely lucky to have met an interviewed some of the industry’s greatest names (including folks like Warren Spector of Epic Mickey and Mac Walters of Mass Effect). Given the time and space, I’d happily regale you with tales of E3s spent hungover and exhausted…
Instead, how about a smattering of some of my favorite games of all time? My taste is all over the place, and this list has been done in no order whatsoever and without the intention of including even a fraction of everything.
- Super Monkey Ball 2
- Halo: Reach (I consider it the pinnacle of Halo.)
- Super Mario Galaxy 2
- Left 4 Dead 2
- Half-Life (this one changed the FPS genre forever)
- The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (who else can still remember Epona’s Song?)
- Pokémon Red and Blue
- Uncharted 2: Among Thieves
- Red Dead Redemption (I’m a lover of Westerns and incredible moments in gaming… like the sunsets in RDR.)
- Super Number Munchers (Represent.)
If you ever want to shoot at me, consider doing it over LIVE or PSN instead of in-person. Just make sure to tell me you’re hooking up with me through TechnoBuffalo. My name on each? It’s a military fart joke. Believe it.
