Ever since the first Playstation system came out, I have always been a loyal player. In fact, I remember when the Playstation 2 came out, I was camping out in the Wal-Mart layaway area waiting to be the first person to get one at midnight. The first three games I bought were Madden, SSX and Ready to Rumble 2. My boss wasn’t too happy when I called in sick the next day.

When the Playstation 3 and 4 were released, I waited, because I wanted to see which games were going to be released. Eventually, I did purchase both systems, but the PS4 was by far the best purchase I had made in a long time. I never took the money and invested in any of the other systems. I wanted to stay true to one brand and thought nothing could be better.

After the launch of the Nintendo Wii U, there was a lot of talk of people saying that they almost got the system right. But for some reason, the Wii U did not last long at all. It seemed more of a fad than anything else. And with several releases of the DS in different forms, there was time for a change. Enter the Switch.

I’m going to be perfectly honest, when I first saw this thing, I laughed. In fact, I laughed just like I laughed when the Wii was released, thinking it was just another gimmick. When I actually got to hold a system in my hands, I was thinking that the buttons were incredibly too small and there is no way that I would enjoy the controls.

Brad has been a die hard arcade fan ever since he can remember. From the first time he played Space Invaders, to the first time he played Pacman, Brad has always had a love for video games. Hanging out at either the Great American Fun Factory in the mall, or spending the night in front of the glowing games at the local roller rink, he was always thinking about when he can spend the next quarter. He also worked at Babbages, which is now GameStop, for over six years. Mostly because they had a really sweet checkout policy on new products and great discounts. But since he had the Atari 2600, he has never looked back and owned some of the greatest home machines, NES, SNES, GENESIS, Turbo Graphix 16, GameBoy, Game Gear, Lynx, Playsation 1,2,3,4 and Vita, XBOX, Gamecube, and N64...just to name a few. Brad is also a reviewer for Mobile Beat Magazine as well as a freelance videographer, part time disc jockey, performing artist and photographer. But has a true love is for video games and Star Wars, as he is a member of the 501st Central Garrison. His ultimate dream is to own a fully working pinball machine and arcade machine. Difficult to say which one, but a Star Wars one would be nice start.
