Triforce Documentary: Full Movie (And I’m in it!)

So this week Great Big Story/CNN released the full version of their movie “TriForce: The Path to Gaming Glory”, which focuses on my friend Triforce from Empire Arcadia (the team I’m a part of), showing his struggles managing team full of world champion video game players.

And the best part: I make an appearance in this film!

But seriously, I am glad to see Great Big Story cover my friend’s life story. I hope for nothing but the best for this guy.

The Wii U Launch

As some may already know, I was at the Wii U midnight launch at Nintendo World. It was by far my favorite Nintendo launch. There were dancing Mii characters, A dancing Mario Luigi, a cosplay contest (wish Zadra was in it), and hot apple cider and grilled cheese. Great times.

There was a great deal of press coverage. CNN, was there. CNET was there. I got interviewed by a Japanese press team. I even heard that iJustine was nearby. But I missed her. Sad face.

The first purchase was bananas. It took Nintendo World quite a while to ring Triforce up. And after the purchase they kept him in the store so more press could talk to him. It was madness overall.

Triforce invited me to play back at his place. I took a crack at New Super Mario Bros. U. The game is pure insanity in 2-4 players, but still fun.

There is a small documentary from Polygon.com that covers Triforce’s quest to buy the Wii U. I know the guy with the Adidas cap is cute, ladies but please ignore him for the time being. This is about Triforce.

It was a great time witnessing the launch for myself. Expect to see some videos from the launch soon!

Tetris Marathon for the AIDS Walk

I was in Brooklyn to help out the with the Empire Arcadia/SOS Gamers Tetris marathon for the AIDS Walk, both of which happened this weekend. Triforce went at it all day to score over 100 million points and four thousand-ish Tetrises. What’s even better was that we raised money for AIDS awareness.

The Gamers in Guinness Gamer’s 2012

I appear in a video on Empire Arcadia’s channel where Triforce GameMaster and I go through some of the gamers whose name appears in Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition. I hope everyone enjoys watching the video as much as I did recording it.
