Mathieu Evong

My name's Mathieu. I like Oscar Wilde, Charles Schulz and Kool G Rap. I also like video games. My favourite is Half-Life, which I played religiously for half my life. Some of my other favourites are Bioshock, (and System Shock 2) Street Fighter II, Mega Man 2, (because I like sequels, apparently) Max Payne and No More Heroes. I hope to be a professional writer, (and possibly activist) but I'm forever doomed to just play Doom instead.
