Imposters: With my identity being Anonymous there are a lot of people pretending to be "Steparu" I work alone and it's very stressful with the amount of work I do, sometimes I won't update my sites due to it or take long breaks. If you end up running into a fake version, you can always ask me on my Facebook Page if it's really me or not. Other than that, please becareful of scams!
There are a lot of players that pretend to be Steparu so don't get conned by them, you can always check or ask if I am playing a North American game on http://www.facebook.com/Steparus. I rarely play NA games since I am always busy with upcoming games in South Korea or Japan.

About Me (Steparu)
I have been playing video games since I was a little kid. My first console was Famicon. Then I moved on to other consoles like Genesis, SNES, Gameboy Series, GameGear, N64, GameCube, PS1, PS2, PSP, PS3, and Xbox360. I didn't really get into PS3 and Xbox360 due to the crazy boom in the PC Market. During the time when PS2 was first released I was already starting to hardcore play PC games and getting into online gaming. Ever since then I have played online games casually and competitively on numerous online game handles. After playing so much games, I decided I needed a unique nickname that no else would come up with. Thus I came up with Steparu, who is now the websites mascot. Gaming is my life, without it, I have nothing. "No Game No Life!" NGNL.
Foreign Gaming Specialist
I have been playing Foreign games for over a decade now. Being a hardcore gamer, playing American games wasn't enough anymore. Thus I started playing a lot of import Japanese games on my PS2 and PSP. From there, I went into Online Japanese games. Eventually, I advanced into the Korean Online gaming market. Every game publisher as of today knows that Korea is where the gold mine is. A lot of publishers around the world check out the Korean Online game market. I am pretty sure that these next upcoming few years, a lot of the games from Korea will be on the top charts globally.
