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.
A gamer since birth who spent my first two years of life mastering World 1-1 on an NES. Nowadays, I'm an enthusiast who enjoys shooters, roguelikes, pro wrestling, digital hat collections, and arcade machines. I also happen to be TechRaptor's Reviews Editor. Go ahead and follow me on Twitter if that doesn't sound crazy.
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.)
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.
I've been playing games since I was just barely able to walk, and I never really stopped playing them. When I'm not gaming, I'm either working on music, producing one of two podcasts or doing freelance work.
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!
Britbong here! Been playing games for a while now, started with the PS1 (yes I am that young), with a few of my favourites being Soul Edge, Resident Evil 3 and Metal Gear Solid. I also do YouTube videos for my own channel and I have a dog called Precious.
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.
I hate video games. Fun is terrible. Longtime fan of Opie, Anthony, and Jim Norton, The Ron & Fez Show, and stand-up comedy. I'm into gunpla, DIY-type stuff, or artsy craftsy things if you want to call it that. I build electric guitars. Play them sometimes, too. Badly. Music is great in general.
Graphic/web designer, connoisseur of PBR, wanna-be digital artist and writer for Techraptor. When I'm not wasting away my life on WoW, you can find me angrily shouting at well developed tower defense games.
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.
Perry has lived his whole life on the search for a single mission. To find the perfect FPS game. While he has yet to accomplish his goal, he has blown through a stupidly large amount of shooters, and picked up a few writing skills on the way.
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!

He has been gaming ever since he picked up his first Atari back in 1990. he actively makes a living writing for various blogs and websites with the occasional guest post. He is also an advocate, encouraging education about video game accessibility on mainstream gaming publications
Seth firmly believes that there isn't a good way to make a bio sound anything less than pretentious without tossing in a self-referential meta joke, so here we are. Also I talk about video game music a lot.
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.

A long time ago on an Intellivision far, far away my gaming journey started with Lock n' Chase, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons The Cloudy Mountain, and Night Stalker. I earned both a BS-Physics and a BS-Mathematics from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Today I spend most of my time on PC. I left a career of 14 years in aerospace in Colorado, so I could immigrate to Norway.
