Wren: Administrator/Content Creator
It’s just a big, stupid jellyfish.
Wren’s talking in the third-person now. She doesn’t know why that’s happening. Wren grew up in the middle of nowhere, and her first experience with video games was watching her parents play the Sega Genesis religiously. But video gaming first really became her ‘thing’ when she stole her cousin’s Gameboy and played the crap out of Pokemon Blue back when she couldn’t even read. She likes the internet, watching movies, and complaining about all things video games, because what else are people gonna’ do, right? Leave comments and check out the rest of the site, these guys are hip.

Gui: Content Creator
What is a man!?
Well, apparently my first words was some form of “Nintendo” so that’s pretty cool. Besides long walks on a beach I like to do things. Hmm… yeah. My areas of expertise are classic horror movies and games, which means Halloween is the greatest day of the year. ‘Fromage’ is cheese and it’s the meaning of life. Guy, guy, and the boss made this site and everyone else just does things, you know. How are you by the way? Finally, the answer to Dracula’s ultimate question is this manly man of beef.
Favorite game: Link to the Past
Favorite series: Castlevania, Zelda, Donkey Kong Country

Jason: Administrator/Content Creator
Fighting against insurmountable odds with unrestrained ferocity and a nerf bat.
The resident “hypothetical fictional character battle” enthusiast. Punchy spends his free time lurking in the halls of the Naruto Forum’s Outskirts Battledome and ScrewAttack’s Death Battle forums/comment sections. Additionally, there isn’t a form of recreational multimedia that this hyper-nerd doesn’t find some solace in. Video games, comics, philosophy, and movies are his forte. However, he’ll talk about music, television, aliens, religion, fantasy, sci-fi, anime, and nearly everything else under the sun. Seriously? Just get him started.

Courtney: Media Manager/Advertising
DON’T LOSE YOUR WAYYYYY!
Courtney thinks talking about themselves in third person is really weird. They started playing games when they got a Gameboy and Pokemon Blue as a kid, and then Pokemon (and video games) consumed their life forever. When not playing video games, they mostly just sit on the internet, watch anime, and plan too many cosplays.
