Miguel “The Animator” Felix
Age : 16
My name is Felix, I was born November the 8th 1996, I am a fairly casual gamer: I started back on the PS2 so I never played really old school stuff like the PS1 or GameCube.
The first game I ever played was Tekken 4 and I was instantly a fan, I have played games all my life really it was only about when I got into movies that I really became more casual.
I decided to become a filmmaker due to the help of James Rolfe over at http://cinemassacre.com/ and later I found my true calling in animation and drawings.
I love to rage against movies and games because I am passionate about good art and I can get pretty pissed off at bad art (of any kind that has no excuse to be bad) and yes I do consider some videogames to be art, it can get pretty hilarious.
What I hate the most about bad art is bad art that is made only to make money , I’m going to be mainly the movie critic and reviewer for this site so expect some movie news and a lot of reviews from me.
Francisco “Frank Rod” Rodrigues
Age : 19
Hey guys, my name is Francisco Rodrigues, but you guys can call me by my nick “Frank Rod”.
I’m currently taking a degree in animation, and I’m also a good guy artist sometimes.
I like to hang out with friends, manage projects, cinema, occasionally drive my car fast and pretend I’m at Nürburgring, play videogames that are actually worth it and provide me with some epic, enjoyable moments.
But let’s get down to the core business, guys!
Whether it’s a movie or a videogame, I demand realism and authenticity!
KEEP CALM and KEEP IT REAL… for Frank.
Double if it is a simulation game (game type which I’m kindly fond of) and second to that there is the story-telling element, which is also rather crucial to me.
So, basically, I’m the reviewer here that takes care of simulation games, the sci-fi genre and everything else that requires my attention.
A big hug to you guys, and see you in the tracks or the skies out there.
João “Shepard” Lucas
Age : 16
Hello fellow cyber-surfers and gamers, I go by the name of João Lucas but people either call me Lucas or Shepard.
I’m currently attending an electronics and telecommunications technician degree (professional high school if you will) and I practice Airsoft.
Besides that I’m also a gamer; I started playing when I was 6 years old and only used the PC for playing and paint. The first game I played was Revolt (a RC car race game) and then Sims/SimCity.
Nowadays I play all sorts of stuff that I find appealing (Shooters, action, simulation, etc.)
I’m in charge of the Community Managing, Public Relations and other stuff. I will also do reviews from time to time about stuff I find interesting.
That’s my intro, hope you guys have a great time here. So… I should go.
