Rob Man


Although probably best known as the MegaMan obsessed co-host of Happy Console Gamer, Rob is a true old school, hard core gamer.


His first gaming experience was at the tender age of five when his father brought home a Commodore Vic 20. Cutting his teeth on classics like Gorf, Cosmic Cruncher, Pharoh’s Curse, Shamus, Tank vs. UFO and Hawkmen of Dindrin the taste for gaming rooted itself early.


It would not be until 1987 and an introduction to the NES that the true gamer would be born. From the Christmas of 1988 (when Rob Man finally got a NES of his own) gaming was in his blood. While MegaMan is his favourite series, Rob is also a big fan of many other games and series’ like Castlevania, Zelda, Dragon Quest, Mario Kart, Street Fighter…. The list goes on. With each new console and generation of gaming the passion has grown. This passion for gaming is what founded and cemented the friendship Rob shares with Johnny Millennium, The Happy Console Gamer.


With his first appearance on Happy Console Gamer (helping Johnny with the MegaMan series) the natural chemistry of the pair showed through the screen and a regular place on the show just made sense. Rob has since been fortunate enough to meet and guest with the All Gen Gamers crew on numerous occasions as well as having guest appearances on Operation Kill Screen, The MegaMan Cave and HeadRobo’s Power Players.
