Hang-Veng Ly – Founder / Editor-In-Chief (Australia)

Jess “Ninja” Watson – Senior News Editor / Reviewer (Australia)

Chris Morell – Reviewer (United Kingdom)
Having worked on other online video game sites, Chris brings with him a broad range of gaming knowledge stretching right back to the original NES and Sega Master System. When he’s not losing hours of his life to any one of the big-name adventure games, he can probably be found nerding it up to the latest comic book movie. A self-confessed magpie, he’s quick to go chasing anything remotely shiny, but have no fear… he’d still take fun gameplay over high-end graphics any day.
Favourite Games: Assassin’s Creed 2, The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Devil May Cry, Starfox 64.
Favourite Series: Assassin’s Creed, Mass Effect, Tomb Raider, Devil May Cry, The Elder Scrolls, Soul Calibur.

Martin Muk – Contributor (Australia)
Martin enjoys video games and has decided to try his hand in reviewing them so he can sit on his high horse for a fixed period of time each week. Martin has been playing games since his parents bought him his first console back in 1993, a Super Nintendo.
His room has slowly been growing smaller with all the gigantic collector’s edition boxes he’s recently purchased. Worst habit at the moment is collecting trophies which he hope to achieve level 14 on PSN sometime in 2012!
Other than gaming he also enjoy watching movies, television, reading, listening to music and occasionally going outside to get some sunshine.
Favourite Games: Diablo 2, Uncharted 2, Super Mario 3, Mario Kart 64, GTA: San Andreas, Lylat Wars (Starfox 64)
Favourite Series: Battlefield, Uncharted, Grand Theft Auto, Half-Life/CS
Consoles Owned: Nintendo 64, SNES, PlayStation 3
