Eli PalesEli Pales

Eli buys virtually every Nintendo title that comes out but has expanded his collection to include amiibo. He hasn't taken them out of their boxes, though, so he might be a bit insane. When not playing video games, Eli likes writing about politics and games. He also runs a decent amount. Outside.

Jason RodriguezJason Rodriguez

I'm a contributor for various sites under the Enthusiast Gaming umbrella: Destructoid,, PlayStation Enthusiast, and Flixist. Games. Movies. Travel. History. Warhammer. Dad jokes. All around nerdy stuff. You name it, I'll happily chime in.

I don't have any backed Kickstarter projects to disclose, although I used to be a CM for a local MMO -- this was way back in 2006. I also used to be really good in Counter-Strike, and I mean "bunny hop to avoid AK-47 bursts and shotgun AWP you in the face" good. Then I got old.

Tyler WiseTyler Wise

Been a fan of video games ever since I opened up a Game Boy with Pokemon Yellow one Christmas far too long ago. I even taught myself to read by playing it! From then on, games and words have always been linked for me. I found that what I really liked about video games (and every other thing I owned) was the stories they held. I'm honored to be here, using my words to talk about the wonderful worlds that games can take us to.

Andrew Farrell has an extreme hearing sensitivity called hyperacusis that keeps him away from all loud noises.  Please do not throw rocks at his window.  That is rude.  He loves action and rpg games, whether they be AAA or indie.  He does not like sports games unless the sport is Baseketball.
