    Name - Amanda

    Located - In Japan, not in Tokyo and prefer it that way (although do visit for some shopping trips every now and then).

    For a living I - try to teach some kids English but the Japanese English teaching system can be such a mess so I just do my best to get them to learn some English phrases that can be used in real life. After I move on, the dream of dreams would be to eventually become a localizer for Japanese games but I'd honestly be ok with becoming a tour guide/travel agent to help out Japanese tourist who visit America.

    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - pottery, reading, watching MLB, art history nerd, traveling, stalking around museums, and studying languages (Japanese for now but already have some Korean books to start learning that language soon).

    Gaming Historical facts - I got into gaming when i was three years old because my mom used to work days and my dad would work nights which left him alone with me during the sunlight hours. He bought a NES so that he could entertain the both of us (him playing and me watching). He first used to give me an unplugged controller while he played so I would think that I was the one beating up Bowser on the TV. Apparently one day I figured out what he was doing so I cried until he let me actually play on my own and I've been gaming ever since.

    Firm believer that - Leaks suck so much what's wrong with finding things out about games after they come out/annouced? Knowing everything before even playing a game/seeing a brand new trailer is the wooooooorst.

    Champion of - sarcasm

  • Name - Zack
    Located - Canada
    For a living I - am a graduate student
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - I read a lot, write some, draw a bit, enjoy most other forms of gaming too (board games, tabletop rpgs, miniature wargames).
    Gaming Historical facts - My parents actually got me into gaming, they were gamers first. My mother played Shining in the Darkness for her entire pregnancy with me. We were a Sega family until my older brother and I found an NES at a garage sale and then my dad bought us a SNES and later an N64. I have owned every console from a major publisher at some point. I mostly play RPGs but I don't restrict myself by genre.

  • Name - Jon
    Located - Farmington, Michigan
    For a living I - I am a stay at home dad for my 14 month old daughter.
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Reading, writing and board games.
    Gaming Historical facts - There is more than enough to fill a book, as I have been gaming for over 30 years, with the Atari 2600 being my first console and an Apple IIGS as my first computer. Favorite systems include the Sega Saturn, of which I have a collection that includes, Panzer Dragoon Saga, Dragon Force, Saturn Bomberman, Burning Rangers, Magic Knight Rayearth and soooooo much more. I also love the Sega Dreamcast and Sega CD, as well as everything Nintendo. I am a retro collector, but that does not keep me from loving modern games of the current generation.
    Firm believer that - There is no need for negativity on the internet. We find entertainment in being judgemental and harsh towards everyone around us. We should be able to enjoy games with impunity and encourage others to enjoy games. It is alright to not like something, but it is wrong to tell someone they are wrong for liking it. Games are meant to be fun, so treat them as such.
    Champion of - Retro game collecting and showing the good in almost every game, even the cheesy FMV games of the 1990's.
