Tonight, the table has been turned and we sit down with Seibertron's own double agent and look into his past. We'll see how far we can push his mind to the knife edge.

I've known the man for a good few years, and he still manages to surprise me.

Quite the enjoyable read, I must say. An excellent insight into one of our favorite "villains" :3

Your 'Why I Love Transformers' articles are among the best forum posts I'd seen this year anywhere online. Inspired me to go for completing AEC at some point in the future.

BTW, I see the Photobucket collection belongs to 'Daidoji Kage'. L5Red much?

I am OLD school L5R.

I fought to rescue Hoturi. I had a full play set of Crimson and Jade. I was there for the battle of the Second Day of Thunder.

I have a Kachiko promo card from the debut GenCon signed by Matt Wilson...

Alas, when we were burglarized last year, my L5R card collection was massacred. They stole the box with my complete character card set and my action card box. :|

Oh man, exactly the same as me L5R-wise AND a 2d fighter fanatic? Seriously, almost all I did during 2001-2002 was play CvS2. It took me a year and a half to get shoshosho and paint perfect. :sad:

I meant, L5R should have died a decade ago. They're not just beating a dead horse anymore, that thing is downright skeletal already. I was WAY into it 1996-1998. I loved the supercrazy broken stuff like Lion killing 2 provinces before you could take your turn, that OVERPOWERED (understatement) ho-bag Osugi, the fact that Crab were super popular but basically godawful, allowing for many tourney wins. :grin: I spent all my allowance and lots of holiday money on that game up until ToV.

I've always been an A3 person and for a time I was formidable at 3S. I've backed off those two a lot and settled down with ST. ST is all about fundamentals and I don't have time to practice genai jinn or VCs anymore...

I and a few others around me are some of the best KOF MIRA players in the country. :oops: We promote the hell out of that game.

Interestingly enough on the L5R thing...the one tournement I won I had planned to play an LSD deck. Last minute I shifted to Crab Oni and went undefeated.

The Crane is my clan though. I could just not ever play the style that would let them win at tournements. As the results counted to story, I just didn't want to whore them out to the honor arches. I wanted more Iron Crane stuff...(so I lost :) )

Osugi rules. Making her Unique was a bitch move. :grin:

Ah KoF. I miss it. I was pretty damn good at 95, 98, 01 and 03. Those are all we basically got here. I have no idea where the franchise went after 04.

98 was my specialty though. I liked start-Terry, start-Yashiro and the most imba character of all time (seriously, don't bring him back ever if you can't really fix him) Goro. Goro was hands down just... defies description. I've killed more entire teams with just Goro than I spent tokens total on 98.

Downforward C - obscene.
D, downforward C, superthrow - disgusting
Downforward C, roll, downforward C, roll, Earth shake - yuck
Just standing there and poking with B and D - horrible

Awesome interview. Cool to hear about the man himself! You always have such rational and well thought out points of view, Counterpunch. I admire that. And the crazy devotion to minicons. To me they're just an afterthought, an accessory to a larger figure, but you really appreciate them. That's so cool.

Unfortunately I can't view said Collection Of Legend, whatever hosting site they're on seems to be blocked at my workplace. I shall see it later!
