Patrick Rost

PROFILE:

My name is Patrick Rost, and I am a young graduate from The University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, the #1 liberal arts university in the state of Oklahoma. I've been playing sports games since the days of Joe Montana Sports Talk Football on the Sega Genesis, and my loyalty to the genre as stretched over as many years. Aside from sports titles, I also find myself magnetically drawn to cheesy RPGs that fulfill my need to grind for levels for hours on end. Please contact me if you'd like to ask a question, or of course, discuss the game Phantom Brave for 30 straight hours.
