Video game analyst Michael Pachter criticizes Nintendo’s upcoming console and claims that Nintendo made the Wii U Pro Controller because Activision wouldn’t release Call of Duty on the Wii U unless it had a standard controller.

I love video games, and while my obsession with them probably isn't great for my social life, it at least helps me write about the things happening in the gaming world!
Aside from Gamerai, I currently write for a video game blog called BeefJack where I'm a senior writer. I've also written for another gaming blog called Twisted Junk, and some of my articles have appeared on N4G (here and here). I was also a school newspaper reporter for Penn State, and I had a short non-fiction story published in one of Penn State's anthologies.
Some of my favorite games include Super Mario 64, Final Fantasy VII, Grand Theft Auto III, and Super Smash Bros. Melee.
I also love anime such as Naruto and Bleach, and I'm a big fan of podcasts like Giant Bomb and The Totally Rad Show. Social life? Who needs it.
