My job on this site involves managing all our weekly content, and ensuring that they have a timely release date, but I also contribute with the daily news grind and the occasional editorial. I've grown up with video games, but have only recently taken an active interest in writing and discussing them at a deeper level. My history with games has been very Nintendo-focused, but my tastes have changed a bit over time and I now mostly do my gaming on my PC.
