The staff of Save Game are a diverse bunch. Here’s a little bit of information about each of them.
Tash is a self-diagnosed gaming fanatic.
She owns a PS3, which is her primary gaming console, as well as an Xbox360 slim, a gaming laptop and a PSP that sadly hardly ever gets played.
A lover of all things RPG and adventure, she dallies with FPSers and enjoys racing games as long as they don’t have a focus on drifting. She has more gamer related action figures and memorabilia than any 20 something year old professional has a right to own, and has spent more time than she’d like to admit to daydreaming about exactly what she would do should the Zombie Apocalypse actually happen.
Jen is a long time gamer. She’s been lucky enough to see the entire evolution of gaming from Atari to the current consoles. Stop doing the math. She’s old.
Jen is happy to have been a part of Gamer Reaction, writing features and the occasional host segment. She also dabbles in writing and performing sketch comedy with the NYC based group SPURN. Jen likes tacos and her guilty pleasure is writing fan fiction (shhhh).
She’s also pretty bad at writing about herself in the third person, so she’ll stop now and let someone else have a turn.
Kim – Editor
Kim’s early gaming years consisted primarily of lurking in the study, watching her brother play Tank Platoon over his shoulder. Not long after she began her own gaming career playing such classic games as Mother Goose’s Mixed Up Fairytales and Leisure Suite Larry.
Soon, she was playing Wolfenstein for as long as she could until the inevitable motion sickness set in. Happier days came with the release of the first two Monkey Island games, and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade both cemented her love of gaming and archaelogy.
Nowadays, Kim divides her time between her cat, her career, and playing the Mass Effect series over and over again. She welcomes any Baldur’s Gate 2 mod recommendations.
Griffon – Writer
Griffon is a die hard gaming addict that needs serious professional help. Currently, his gaming fix is met with the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. His favoured console is the PS3 though he admits to enjoying plenty of franchises on the 360. He plays any game type with a heavy bias towards story oriented games which tends to mean a lot of RPGs, Japanese or not. He also has a healthy obsession with platformers and puzzle games.
He is quite proud of his extensive gaming soundtrack collection as well as the recent explosion in artwork hanging on his walls – he is still cursing Bioware for assaulting his poor wallet in such a heinous manner.
Joe was born in a time of war. A console war. Two electronic titans were locked in a heated battle for the living rooms of America. Which titans, you ask? Well, the Fairchild Channel F and the Atari 2600 of course. You see, Joe is old. So many of his favorite games tend to be on the older side as well. But that hasn’t stopped him from developing unhealthy obsessions with such modern franchises as Halo and Mass Effect. Just don’t tell him how long it’s been since the original metroid was released. His ageing heart can’t take the shock.
