About Jason Nason

I'm a fan of all video games with a leaning towards Nintendo. I've owned just about every Nintendo console ever released (with notable exceptions being the original GameBoy and Virtual Boy). If it's something to do with Nintendo I want to know about it and if it's noteworthy I'll certainly share it with you! Nintendo 3DS Friend Code: 3496-9927-9448 Nintendo Network ID: jncorp
