Patrick Rost

PROFILE:

My name is Patrick, and I write about games that are new, and then I typically go back to playing games that are old. I'm a huge fan of the Super Nintendo and PlayStation 2 gaming eras, and tend to focus my love on classic RPGs (J- or otherwise), sports games, and racing titles. Shoot me an e-mail if you have any questions, or if you want to discuss leveling theories for defensive characters in Phantom Brave.
