Jake Bellissimo loves gaming, and has always taken a liking to the Nintendo company. Favorite game? Definitely Kirby and The Amazing Mirror, which ties into his favorite genre: platformers. Yes, as n00bish as that sounds, completing them to 100% isn’t. Jake has an interest in anything concerning Walter Elias Disney, the roaring 20′s, and music. When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Gal he’s either having no life, or writing for his music news and reviews site soundsofthecar.com.
