I've been a gamer for years of various types starting with the Sega Genesis and Shining Force when I was young. If I'm not playing video games, I'm often roleplaying, reading, writing, or pondering things brought up by speculative fiction.
Founder of TechRaptor with a love of video games (B.S. in Game and Simulation Programming) and technology. Started TechRaptor to create a place where people could come for unbiased and high quality news, reviews, and editorials.
Alex is a lifelong gamer who cut his teeth mastering World 1-1 on the NES. Nowadays, he's an enthusiast who enjoys shooters, roguelikes, pro wrestling, digital hat collections, and arcade machines. He also happens to be TechRaptor's Reviews Editor. Go ahead and follow him on Twitter if that doesn't sound crazy.
I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk, and I never really stopped playing them. When I'm not fulfilling my duties as assistant news editor, I'm either working on music, producing one of two podcasts or doing freelance work.
I've been a lover of video games, writing, and technology for as long as I remember. I have a B.A. in English from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and am a writer and copy editor for TechRaptor.
I've been an avid gamer since the young age of 6, and have taken a journey to start writing and producing video content to share my love of video games with the world. I have a degree in computer science from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, and had worked in the transit industry working on Ticket Vending Machines, and fareboxes in mass transit. When it became clear that the kind of work that I wanted to do was eluding me despite always being considered an "up and coming star", I left my job and decided to start creating video content.
I started a youtube channel, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLXbNv80pHXWgqlf9i3oikQ, to start sharing my thoughts on new games, as well as producing content in a variety of ways.
I believe that every game has something that we can take out of it, even games that are negative experiences overall, and I want to highlight getting the most value out of games. I want to highlight deals to bring games that deserve the spotlight to light, and help gamers save as much money as possible, mostly to spend that money on more games =P.
I love discussing video games, and will always be open to talking about them (granted, if I am working on something at the time, it may be a timely response.)
A tsundere lolita writing about games for the last three years. Somehow got involved in covering mobile games. Loves JRPG's and all genre's of gaming except for platform games. Platforming can go die in a fire.
You ever wonder why we're here? It's one of life's greatest mysteries, isn't it? Good thing games exist so that we don't have to think about it. Or at least I don't have to think about it. Instead, I'll just play Halo or something.
I'm an avid video game player and I love to write. After graduating from York University with a degree in philosophy the only logical choice was to get out of academia and write about video games. When not playing a game or writing I can be found at my local comic book store, binge watching something on Netflix, or watching wrestling of some kind.
I'm a College Student studying Computer Science planning for a future in technology. I have been playing video games of all kinds since before i could talk and now mostly end up on the Xbox but i've been known to be on steam and PSN. I'm always down for a game so if you're online then game on! Feel free to follow me on Twitter @AndrewStretch
Avid shooter and platformer fan. Coffee is the only power up I need. In the spare time I have I will listen to more podcasts than has scientifically been deemed healthy.
Hit me up on Twitter if you ever want to chat with me about games, tech, or whatever.
A long time gamer, techie, and music aficionado with a thing for anime, JRPGs, FPS games, figurines, and most of all, motorsports. Exposed to a wide variety of cultures at an early age and loves to learn more about them every day. Loves to write, design custom levels, and aspires to finally start producing some good music soon.
I've been playing both boardgames and videogames my entire life. I grew up in a boardgaming family, and started competing in boardgame tournaments when I was 9. I prefer games with direct competition and and player interaction. For videogames, I spent most of my childhood playing the SSI Gold Box series of RPGs, as well as a plethora of NES and Genesis games. These days I prefer roguelites, platformers, shmups, and classic style First Person Shooters.
I'm a writer for TechRaptor, and an aspiring indie dev; technology and games in particular have been my passion my whole life, and to contribute to the industry has been my dream. If I'm not writing or working on other work, you can almost always find me playing some sort of game!
My name is Jesse and I do video content for TechRaptor, so if you want some spicy reviews and more, then make sure to check out our YouTube channel and my own (TheFriendlyBroski).
Few of my favorite games are Soul Edge, Habbo Hotel, Metal Gear Solid: 3 and MySpace.
Old enough to know better, dumb enough to do it anyway. Playing video games since before they were invented, and writing about them since 1996. Alumni of gamepen.com, gamesdomain.co.uk, Computer Game Strategy Plus magazine, and several other places I've contributed to the downfall of. Taylor Swift wrote a song about me, I'm pretty sure.
My name is Jack, I've been playing games my whole life, mostly Nintendo and Playstation games.
My all time favorite game series are Pokemon, Infamous, and Persona
Recently, my favorite games have been Monster Hunter 4 U, Digimon Cyber Sleuth, and Fallout 4.
Defender of waifus. Fighting game aficionado. Nearly 100% anime nonsense at this point. IT Specialist for the US Government by day but by night? JRPG/MMORPG addicted, constantly grinding in the lab to get better at Street Fighter and spending his time thinking critically about the medium he adores so.
Jake Richards loves the current roguelite indie bubble we're experiencing, and is bracing himself for its inevitable burst. Favorite games include Dark Souls, Red Dead Redemption, Binding of Isaac, and the Civilization series.
I've been playing video games ever since I was able, the first game that really got me hooked was Pokemon Red (I picked Charmander of course) and ever since then I've played as many different types of games as I could. Some of my favorites are Pokemon (duh), The Elder Scrolls Series, Fallout 3, Portal, Fire Emblem, Mass Effect, Smite, and Super Smash Bros. I love the video game and tech industries and hope to keep you all as informed and entertained as I can.
A Writer in Mind and a Gamer at Heart, I seek to play and finish as many games as I can muster, then try to convey my impression of them in a way that's actually useful to you. I've got a heart for moddable games and addicting mechanics, so you'll usually spot me playing those in my spare time.
I'm a long time gamer since the days of the Sega Genesis. I love everything there is about gaming from retro platformers to the fast paced fps games. My aim is to entertain you for a few hours on stream.
I'm one of the tabletop writers here at TechRaptor as well as an IT security analyst and full-time geek. If I'm not actively playing, I'm either painting something, enjoying burying my nose in a book or arguing on the Internet.
As English as fish & chips and twice as greasy, Mark has wielded a keyboard from the age of five and has a green belt in Taekwondo, proving his power level is more or less equal to that of a seven year old.
I used to be that band guy with super cool hair who lived and breathed breakdowns, now I work on TV shows as an colorist/editor. You can find me on twitter talking about my ever expanding collection of NES games and my love hate relationship with Tinder.
Aspiring author. Part time horrible procrastinator. FPS connesuir. Tactical games journalist. Professional hater of fun. No matter what role Perry's currently playing, it's a safe bet to assume that he's doing it fairly poorly - but still managing to turn it into some sort of article.
I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!

I've been writing about video games for the past few years, and have a goal to get a degree in journalism. Some of my favorite games include Final Fantasy 9, Perfect Dark, Ace Combat 5: The Unsung War, and Metro 2033. Also a big reader, and has been considering writing that book forever now. One day.
For as long as I can remember I've always had a controller in my hands and, as a child, I once played video games until my thumbs hurt. When my thumbs aren't hurting you can find me writing, podcasting, or at the closest dive bar.
Old enough to have watched the first moon landing live on TV, I've been gaming since the days of ApVenture and the Zork series. My last console was an Atari 2600, and my first PC was an Apple IIc (in glorious monochrome!). If you want to understand the kind of person I am, it might help a bit to play Ultima IV.
