If you’re reading this, I’m sorry. You got the dud pick.

You, right now.

I’m Hatman. I am a notorious curmudgeon who’s tastes run the gamut of the bizarre both in gaming and outside.

I’m a Fighting Game aficionado - If it involves punchy punchy fun times I’ve probably played it or want to play it. Better if its old because the old jank has better flavor aged than the new flavorless kind. Of those, things like Fighter’s History Dynamite and World Heroes Perfect are favorites.

I also enjoy Beat ‘Em Ups - However, it’s mostly stuff like Knuckle Bash, Shadow Force, and other weird thing. No Final Fight for this man.

I also, surprisingly enough for those of you who’ve seen me rant, love me some Japanese Role-Playing Games. Of those, my favorites are Cyber Knight 1 and 2, Rudra no Hihou, Persona 2 (IS which I haven’t played and EP which I have) and Tecmo Cup Soccer Game. It’s an RPG, shut up. I do like the classics (Dragon Quest, any FF before 7, etc.) but they often do not rank in my favorites.

Other than that, I enjoy me some Mobile Games and MMOs. Stuff like Dragalia Lost and SINoALICE (which is coming out west in 2019!) and for MMOs, it’s mostly Final Fantasy XIV but hey, if one of the 3 kickstarter attempts at recreating City of Heroes comes out I might be interested. I like the concept of superheroes more than what the big two actually do with them.

Another love of mine is pro wrestling, but please no WWE nor ROH for political reasons, thank you.

Books are absolutely fine and loved. I might not get to it in a thousand years (I bought À la recherche du temps perdu in the original French, all 7 books this year. I’m gonna have reading for a while.) but I love ‘em anyway. IDEALLY anything part of a canon of an underrepresented culture worldwide, and ideally in a language I can read (which would be English and French).

WARNING: IF YOU DECIDE TO GET ME AN OLDER GAME, PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE SURE IT’S NOT A PORT MADE BY FUCKING DOTEMU. HERE IS WHY.

Shirt Size: XL or XXL if it looks small, but don’t get me a shirt since I’m gonna splurge on the ADGQ Yetee shirts two weeks after the secret santa so I’m gonna have, wait for it, TOO MANY SHIRTS.

Systems I own that are functional: PS2, PS3, PS4, XB360, XB1, Switch, 3DS, a PC.

Again, I apologize. You really drew the short end of the stick.
