Hey everyone! New Ally here and this seemed like the perfect place to make my first post.
Name - Chris Griffin
Located - Texas
For a living I - Music Marketer for bands and products and a writer for various web-series/podcasts.
Non-gaming Hobby(ies) - Movies, I'm almost always watching movies. If I'm not watching movies, I'm listening to music. Music is life.
Gaming Historical facts - I've been gaming ever since I was able to hold a controller. I just wish I had more time for it now than I used to. The Dreamcast is the console that made me a hardcore gamer though, specifically Shenmue, which led me to being an Xbox fan for Shenmue 2. I suppose I should add that I've had "Shenmue" on my google alerts for as long as google alerts have been around.
Champion of - shenanigans.

Name - Brandon
Located - Florida
For a living I - am a college student. I hope to become a computer programmer one day.
Non-gaming Hobbies - I watch a lot of tv and read a lot of books. I also love playing card and board games with my friends and family.
Gaming Historical Facts - When I got a Gamecube for my birthday, my parents couldn't afford any games to go with it. I didn't care, though, I just spent several hours turning it on and off to watch the opening logo animation. There was a big, stupid grin on my face the entire time. I think that's a pretty good representation of the kind of person I am.
Firm Believer That - The first three Thief games are masterpieces and they have the best fanmade content of any game series ever. I also hate the reboot for making me add that "first three" bit. I hate the reboot for a lot of things.
Champion of - I'm gonna go ahead and plug the Vita here. It's actually a pretty neat little handheld, especially if you like niche Japanese games.

@GoshGollyGee Yay, more Florida. I thought I was the only one.
Located -Houston, Tx
For a living - I work for my familyscleaning buisness we clean houses, schools, and offices. They also run a mini restaurant inside a gas station so I pitch in with busy work when we don't have a job in the cleaning buisness
Non-gaming Hobbys - Watching wrestling love it and not just WWE stuff been watching it since I was a kid. Music I listen to all sorts of genres but Hip Hop is my favorite. Watching sports occassionally I'll get wrapped up watching various sporting events from boxing, ufc, soccer, football etc but I'm not super into them.
Gaming Historical facts - The earliest gaming memorys I have are when I was very young and lived in Mexico. My grandmother owned a convience story which was ran out of the house we lived in. She would have some arcade cabinets outside the store and I would play as much as I could. I think some of the games were Donkey Kong, Galaga, Centipede etc the classics. One of my first consoles I ever played was a Atari but not sure which one. Since all I can remember is a particular cartidge that was bootleg filled with lots of games. That was pretty much the only way to get new games the old fashion bootleg way. From there when I moved to the USA it was history my first consoles was a NES, followed by SNES, Genesis. I would write more but it would take up to much space haha.
Firm believer that - Video Games are meant to be fun not to hurt others by verbally bashing someone or threats. Be kind to one another and if someone isn't then just ignore them.
Champion of - nothing

You may call me "Dark Hazel Coconut" I'm a rogue warrior and I always work alone. I grew up in the streets of Erpot, this is where I learned all my fighting techniques and stances. I am trained in 900+ forms of martial arts, and I wear my trusty "Katana-axe" (Katana means sword in Japanese).
I play video games to hone my fighting skills in the real life battlefield, my favourite game is Half-life 2 because it improved my real life jumping by 60%
My Twitter combat updates can be found Here
I am a firm believer that Half-Life 3 is hidden in a jungle somewhere, waiting to be found.
Sorry for joking around so much, Half-life 2 is the best though.
Love you guys!

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
