About Dillan Combs

I've been playing games since the SNES/Genesis era. Some of my earliest memories are of Donkey Kong Country and Sonic 2. My favorite Nintendo generation is the N64. I played Super Mario 64, Ocarina of Time, Banjo Kazooie, Kirby 64, and Paper Mario all the time growing up. Today I play a lot of JRPGs. My favorite turn-based RPGs are Shin Megami Tensei and Persona games, while my favorite action RPGs are Dark Souls and Kingdom Hearts.
