I'm from Germany, since 2005 I live in Japan, where I do research in genomics. I am doing some Quake mapping, but my free time is very limited so progress on my level moves at a glacial pace. I really hope I can finish a level and present it to you.
Video games are my main hobby, I love classic gaming from the most ancient 8-bit consoles all the way to the Dreamcast and PS2. I also have a PS3 but barely use it for anything. In Japan, the arcade culture is still alive and sometimes I go to HEY in Akihabara or Monacco in Shibuya where I mainly play bullet storm games by CAVE.
