Greetings! My name is Michael Nicolai, and I’m the curator of Gamespite’s woefully underdeveloped community comics page and weekly regurgitator of Virtual Console press releases. I am an aspiring graphic novelist and some of my interests include plumbing, mathematics and skipping cutscenes. Did you know there are many intersections between comic books and video games? Two young mediums designed to separate children from their quarters, both looked down upon in disdain for being violent escape fantasies capable of corrupting young minds. And they both have fans that are almost as bad as their detractors — an exclusively catered niche that perceives any change to the status quo as a personal affront. Both mediums also share an untapped potential, stymied by a deficit of critical thought and plain stubborness.
By coincidence there are also many intersections between the gaming interests (and sometimes the names) of my fellow co-bloggers and my own, but there is one thing that distinguishes myself — I was created by Rita Repulsa to destroy them. But enough talk! I came here to introduce myself and blog about games.
And I’m all out of introducing myself.
