My mood is being able to say "I'm very tired" in as many languages as possible. I play a lot of tabletop RPGs and sometimes I will play a video game. Talk with me about survival horror.

Amanda Bower

Staff Writer

I'm so awkward when I have to talk about myself. I'm an avid video game player (obviously). When I'm not avoiding reality in imaginative worlds, you can find me trying to master a kamehahmeha while simultaneously devouring buffalo chicken wings.

Ron Welch

I love dissecting game design, seeing what works and what could be improved. While RPGs, shooters, and strategy games are my favorites, I'll tackle just about anything. I also do voice overs, make an award winning wing sauce, and (formerly) write about post-apocalyptic goodness.

Marcus Hansson

Staff Writer

Marcus wants three things: to make fat coin writing cool stuff, to play games, and to find a piece of cardboard that fits neatly under the short leg of his desk. He's been making stuff up since 2006, which happens to be the year David Bowie thanked Marcus for writing all his songs.

Trevor Whalen

I am a lifelong, enthusiastic gamer, freelance writer and editor, blogger, and Thief FM aficionado. I think that exploration-heavy, open-ended first-person games are the best vehicle for story-telling, with the finest Thief missions leading the pack.

Tyler Brass

Staff Writer

Austin Suther

I love to write, and I love to game. So, I've combined those two hobbies into one! Some of my favorite games include Fire Emblem, Halo, The Elder Scrolls, and World of Warcraft. Sometimes I like to read the occasional fantasy novel, too!

Mark Jansen

Staff Writer

When I'm not writing on TechRaptor, you can normally find me on YouTube pulling stupid faces under a silly pseudonym.

Dom O'Leary

Staff Writer

I'm a dyed in the wool gamer of the now irrelevant (I'm told) generation-X. If I'm not gaming, you'll find me writing about games, writing my wonderful fiction (opinions may differ), playing guitar, or eating... sleep is a distant memory.

Samantha Ooi

Staff Writer

Ex-game-studio grunt, now freelance writing and floating around. Just don't ask me about what I have seen~

Dark Souls changed my life, and I'm here to spread the good news. I like pretty much all sorts of games, but I judge everything by its proximity to our Lord and saviour, Dark Souls.

Robert Scarpinito

Staff Writer

When I'm not talking about how good the Persona series is, I'm probably playing video games. When I'm not playing games, I'm probably saying "Yikes" or "Oof." Catch me on Tadaima: A Terrace House Podcast some insights on the best reality TV show on Netflix.
