Battle Arena Toshinden Reboot for Wii
Looks like the Wii just might become my new Dreamcast…It’ll be the system that I buy all of the obscure yet completely awesome fighting games for.
The powers that be at Tomy/Takara have decided that they want to bring Toshinden back from the dead. The cool thing is that they’re not bringing back the original teams that were responsible for the other BAT games, they’re bringing in the 3D fighting team Dream Factory to do all the heavy lifting.
While I’m a fan of the games that Dream Factory are famous/infamous for creating, their track record isn’t completely spotless. Take for instance the awesomeness that was the Tobal series and Ergheiz, then compare it to the almost universally panned The Bouncer (I happened to really enjoy the game). I guess the only thing that we here at MWN can say is caveat emptor (google it kids).

I sit upon my throne as the owner/shogun of this site, WatchPlayRead. But it wasn't always so. I too have had blogspots, I've done other community blogs, I've even written professionally for other sites out there...yet none of them provided the content I had a real passion for.
It is then that I became tired of being a small cog in a big machine, and of writing about nothing but game news after game news article and the periphery that comes from such schlock, like knowing who Michael Pachter and Bobby Kotick are.
I decided to start MediaWhoreNetwork.com and ran up my post count there for about 2 years, commenting about any and everything that I wanted to. I even started a weekly podcast that I feel has come into its own.
It wasn't until earlier this year that I realized that having the word "whore" in your URL might be a bit limiting to my potential audience. I then made the website and its branding move over to WatchPlayRead.com.
