Join Pokétown on Facebook!


Programmer by day, Gamer by night. I love to tinker with things and probably break them in the process.

I'm also Admin Rod on Pokétown - a Facebook group for Pokémon everything! Battles, Trades, Breeding, Discussions, RMTs, Shiny/5 IV Giveaways, etc! Join now! (Be sure to read the rules!)

Find me on Youtube & Steam!


I'm a PC Gamer mainly, but I also dabble with my PS3 and 3DS. I prefer to play games to relax, so you won't hear me spouting scores and rankings and all that stuff. I'm Currently playing Pokemon X, and loving it.

My Favourite Games (in no particular order) are:

  • Starcraft (1 and 2)
  • Crash Team Racing
  • Pokemon X
  • Minecraft
  • Borderlands
  • Ratchet & Clank Series
  • Team Fortress 2
  • Portal (1 & 2)
  • Fallout 3
  • Worms Armageddon
  • Left 4 Dead (1 & 2)
  • GTA San Andreas
  • Dawn of War 1 (Dark Crusade expansion mainly)
  • Pokemon, all generations

I'm right into emulation of old games & consoles (I still own the originals, but emulation is easier in this day and age)

Consoles/Devices I own:

  • Gameboy Colour
  • Sega Mega Drive (original one and a recent remake they brought out)
  • Playstation 1, 2, & 3
  • XBox
  • PC
  • Laptop (a.k.a the Emulation machine)
  • Nintendo DS
  • Nintendo 3DS XL

comment What is the origin of the WASD key scheme?
@Frank that meta you linked is 3 years old, the one I linked is 7 months. Based on that it would seem the trend from 'deadlocked' to '70-80% approval rating' would mean the community's stance is shifting in the positive. If you feel like it, would you like to open the discussion on meta to gauge a more current consensus? If not that's cool, I'll get to it after work

comment Who wrote the game 'The Pits', and where is it now?
@Frank the reasoning I get from the answers/discussion is that knowing our (gaming) history, our culture, helps us be better gamers overall. That's basically the same point I made at that time (albeit a bit rudely, and I apologise for that, I'm trying to be less hostile). Do you still think that disregarding history/origin of gaming stuff entirely is best for this site?

comment How do I get the good ending?
Whilst the link and video may answer the question, it'd be better if you could summarize the steps here, to prevent your answer becoming useless should the video/article be removed

@frank - Definitely agree that our stance is inconsistent, that's why I said 'kinda' - The community liked the Origin of Achievements one, but closed the Origin of WASD Controls, despite being effectively the same question. It's not explicitly stated in the on/off topic reasons either. I'd be putting that closure down to the 'slippery slope' of closures here, except most of the voters are big names that I would think be more objective

@NoOneinParticular - As above, you've really got 3 questions here. If you remove the part about Source code (which is more of a recommendation-question and off topic here) - I believe the rest could potentially stay

comment Who wrote the game 'The Pits', and where is it now?
@Frank - the first part could fall under gaming history, which we kinda allow. the third part, about ported versions, is definitely on topic. The second part, looking for source code is definitely off-topic.

comment Where can I EV train with Hordes in ORAS?
@ShadowZ. - I used to as well, and theres nothing wrong with that way either, its just slow. In 5 battles I can have put 250EVs into a stat on 5 different Pokemon (the sixth being the 'trainer' with Sweet Scent and Spread moves) - compared with 21 Super Training battles to reach 252 for one Pokemon . And thats 21 assuming only doing the Level 3, 12 point battle, which is harder to complete when you have less EVs because you do less damage.
