  • Name – Allen aka LaserCat
    Located – Soon to be Torrance CA, moving out from family house (currently Redondo Beach, CA)
    For a living I – Currently I work near LAX airport at a cargo warehouse working the front desk. I rather just play video games all day long but ya...gotta make money for rent.
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) – Gaming takes up pretty much all my time, but when I’m not gaming I would prefer to focus on working out and getting is shape (mostly to pull off a decent cosplay) but haven’t buckled down on the fitness yet. Going to go all out after my move.
    Gaming Historical facts – (going to try to keep this short because I could go on for hours about this) I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember (ever since I played my SNES back in 1989), I would definitely classify myself as a “Huber Archetype” kind of Gamer, I get so hyped for new games especially games that tell epic tales of revenge and redemption! For me there is no better way to tell a story than through a video game.
    Firm believer that – Video Games are an Art Form, we are truly living in a magical age right now. Video games are becoming the best they have ever been and can express SO much now. And with VR around the corner am so excited to see what’s next!
    Champion of – Being the Jack of traits when it comes to video games, I have the special skill of being able to adapt to any kind of gaming console. PC, PS1234, DS, PSP, XBOXs, Old school, etc. As long as the game is interesting to me I don’t care what console it’s on…I’ll Play It! Also I’m a Huge Fan of Catgirls ;3

    Username Origin- Back when Halo 3 was coming out my best friend would always go by the Username of “Darksim007” because he was a big Perfect Dark/Bond Fan. I mostly went by a lot of names like Leilong, and Akiba but he didn’t really like calling me those names because he hated anime. But then IGN showed a trailer for the Spartan Laser in Halo 3 and I lost my shit! I must have watched the trailer like 30 times, so much so that my friend decided to call me “LaserCat006” for now on because at the beginning of the trailer there was an image of a cat saying “LaserCat demands More Lasers!” and the 006 was from goldeneye after Bond’s best friend.
    Top Games- There are SOOO many but the ones that come to mind are the God of War series, ICO/Nico, Batman Arkham City, Ace Attorney Series, Metal Gear Solid series, DOOM, 999 and Onimusha 1
    Most Hyped For- New God of War, VR, Last Guardian, New Kojima Game and Horizon Zero Dawn

  • Name - Vin
    Located - Sydney, Australia (currently in Canberra)
    For a living I - am an Armament Engineer
    Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Reading / Audio Books. Every moment I spend not gaming/learning about games and hardware, I'm reading.
    Gaming Historical facts - I've owned most game platforms and handhelds since the PSX (skipped the WII U and Xbox One), and I've always had a decent gaming PC. I love all kinds of games. Achievements? Well, I'm not a completionist, or particularly skilled, but I'm definitely a power gamer. I've beaten almost every RPG I've ever played with the absolute highest gear, magic, etc possible (All final weapons in FF? check, most powerful demons/personas in SMT games? check, All legendary Pokemon? Check. etc :smile:)
    Firm believer that - Gaming is capable of more than any other medium, and noone should put boundaries on what games can be (gaming doesn't have to be all about gameplay, or graphics, or whatever, games can be anything). People who say a "walking simulator" isn't a game, for example, make me both angry and sad.
    Champion of - Justice. (I'm not that great at games TBH, but I find ways to beat most games on the highest difficulty by finding strong builds etc - so I guess you can say I'm a good optimiser?)

  • Name: Antti
    Located: Finland
    Age: 32
    For a living (kinda) I do IT at local recycling centre.
    Non-gaming Hobby: I guess that would be movies, it's a long time passion just like games. Absolute favorite film would be Taxi Driver and ofcourse Scorsese is my all time favorite director. From music I most enjoy tunes by Buckethead (as you can see in my avatar), such an insane amount of music in all shapes and sizes.

    Gaming Historical facts: I feel like I could write a ton on this subject, but i'll try to keep it short. I started gaming at age of 5 with NES. few years after that I got C64, Amiga 500, then came SNES and 386 PC I think. N64, Pentium and PS1 followed until I upgraded my PC.Tried Xbox a bit and got my first handheld ever Nintendo DS, again upgrading PC. Bought used PS3 from my friend and first time ever in my life I have PC that I can play the newest games. Bought everything new just last december. It's not high end but decent. I still have most love for Nintendo and Wii U is the most interesting of current consoles (since I have a PC, would be PS4 otherwise.)

    Firm believer that a little kindness goes a long way.
    Champion of giving orders to my friends in multiplayer games =P
