Eric has been a gamer since the days of the original Game Boy and early on developed a particular fondness for platformers. After a hiatus from gaming due to college and a broken PS3, he is back to his favorite hobby with renewed interest and a new perspective. Part of that is a better appreciation of experimental gaming mechanics, but he still wishes more developers would copy Monster Hunter.
Vedran discovered the joys of video games with a used Intellivision, fake wood paneling and all, in 1997. Thankfully, his brother nurtured the unhealthy obsession with a purchase of the first PlayStation. Since then, gaming has been a key pastime and passion for him.
