About Steve Baltimore

Steve started with oprainfall not long after the campaign moved from the IGN forums to Facebook. Ever since, he has been fighting to give all non-mainstream RPGs a fair voice. As the site admin, he will continue to do this and even show there is value in what some would deem "pure ecchi." He loves niche games and anime more than anything... well, except maybe Neptune.




  • Still no word regarding that Pacific Rim Video Game. On various sites, it’s stated that the Pacific Rim game also appears on the PS3, but the XBLA version has been released like a month ago. Strange :/
