Kim's been into video games since playing Dizzy on her brother's Commodore 64 as a wee nipper. Video games may be her livelihood, but that doesn't mean she's very good at them. If she's not gaming, she's probably cooing over pictures of baby animals or watching re-runs of Friends for the 137th time. You'll also find Kim's work on Kotaku UK and Gizmodo UK.
An avid gamer since discovering the wonders of the Acorn Electron in the '80s, Rich has nearly played more games than he's had hot dinners. Not one to put all his eggs in one basket, Rich is happy to play games of all genres, but he particularly enjoys racing games and anything that's full of non-stop action, especially if it includes a good dose of humour, horror or crudeness!
Becca knew that she would be addicted to video games for the rest of her life when she saw the first pixelated zombie shambling across her TV screen while playing Resident Evil 3. She particularly enjoys being scared, laughing until she cries, or just plain crying while experiencing games. When she isn't playing games she loves spoiling the stray cats in her neighbourhood and eating any kind of sushi she can find.
For Jack, it all started with the PS1. After years spent playing against AI, video games moved online, so Jack did too. As the industry grew, he followed, treating himself to a diverse array of genres. Now enjoying well-written RPGs the most, he looks for stories he can engross himself in. Unfortunately, they are hard to find in video games. Eventually his love/hate relationship with gaming drew him to write about the industry he is passionate about. When he's not gaming, you'll most likely find Jack watching films.
Joseph Sale is a novelist, creator of dark twines and a gamer. He loves RPGs, open worlds and survival horrors (the latter of which he used to play in an old shed in his back garden - because apparently Resident Evil wasn't atmospheric enough). He looks out for games with a strong narrative; he's a great believer the very best games long outlive their console, and those are the classics he holds on to.
Matt has been an avid gamer since he first ventured to Zebes in Super Metroid. If he's not there, he's probably racking his mind over a puzzler, running through a JRPG, or grinding Dark Souls again. You can find him at your local bookstore, disc golf course, or friendly Smash Bros. tournament otherwise. With a background in Linguistics and Creative Writing, he loves writing about anything from gaming to semiotics.
After spending her childhood playing games with her Dad on the Sega MegaDrive, Holly - AKA 'Titch' - developed a lifelong passion for gaming which kickstarted her dream to write video game narratives, crush the social stigma of women in the gaming industry, and attempt to become the next Hunter S. Thompson. Nowadays you'll most likely find her deeply involved with a fantasy RPG on her PS4, or bothering her pets.
Kyle likes video games and some other things, none of them really worth mentioning. Having written about games for two years, he tries. He enjoys home-made fan games, niche Japanese RPGs, and anything made by Suda51. Would rather be playing his Sega Saturn, honestly.
Robert Gammon is the co-host and producer of GameSpew's official podcast, and he and his fellow hosts make up "The Coconut Threeway". He loves JRPGs and horror games but is open to trying any game. His favourite console is the PS1 and he and the rest of The Coconut Threeway love to play classic 90s games. He loves belly rubs and walks on the beach while listening to Jamie T.
Chris has been gaming since the days of the Acorn Electron, which was allegedly purchased to 'help him with his homework'. You can probably guess how well that went. He’ll tackle most genres – football titles aside – though he has a taste for games that that are post-apocalyptic, horror-oriented or thought provoking in nature.
