(Wondering where the name came from? Look here.)

Welcome to “You Found a Secret Area,” a blog all about the obscure, the odd, the unknown and other miscellanea about the world of video games.

You will not find this at You Found a Secret Area:

  • Sizzling reviews and previews for the hottest new games. (Doesn’t mean this is strictly retro games only, I like all generations of games.)
  • Stupid console war debates.
  • Internet shows with obnoxious hosts.
  • Articles about boots. (That’s silly.)

What you will find is this:

  • Info about game modifications and retail game addons.
  • Talking about obscure budget games you might not have heard of.
  • Talking about times where video games and TV combine into some mish-mash of mediocrity.
  • My travel experiences at gaming conventions such as PAX.
  • Occasionally something non-video game related.
  • Whatever else comes to mind.

I hope you enjoy what the site has to offer. This has been idea that was in my head for a long while and decided to expand upon it in early 2012, as there’s a dire lack of places that cover some of this stuff. I may not be the first to write this stuff, but I hope you find what you see here interesting. Comments and likes are appreciated.

Also on Facebook and YouTube.
