Jaz is so old, he watched the sun rise at the very dawn of Gaming History. His dubious past includes running many magazines through the 80’s and 90’s, being the lead editorial founder of IGN.com, having an epic mullet, achieving world record highscores, and writing some of the harshest (and most enthusiastic) reviews ever published.
Jeremy Parish wanted to be an artist but got sidetracked into writing about video games. Having written for 1UP, EGM, OPM, GMR, CGW, XBN, IGN, and even some publications whose names aren't three letters long, his most valuable takeaway has been how easy it is to trick other game journalists into thinking you're respectable (just wear a tie).
M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
Bob Mackey spent close to a decade in college, escaped with an MA in English, and now writes about video games for a living -- the best possible outcome from so much wasted life. Though he lived in Ohio for most of his days and occasionally calls soda "pop," he has since acclimated to the ways of the Californians and their refreshingly un-Midwestern values. If you want to summon Bob Mackey, stare into a mirror at night and say "EarthBound" three times. You'll be glad you did.

Publishes Gamer Network sites in the United States. Welcomes all challengers, but please don't pick Luigi. He's mine. Here I am looking at a cloud.
