Founder of GameLuster. I really enjoy the video game medium and just wanted an outlet to share my thoughts back in 2012. I usually play a bit more Nintendo, basically Smash Bros all the time. Graduated from UTSA and I am now a Solutions Developer for a small tech firm , now with my limited time I mostly do all the boring back end stuff to have the site running. You can reach me at moises@gameluster.com

Operating from a hidden rebel base somewhere in the scorching wilderness of Arizona, Axel has been playing video games longer than he'd care to admit. When he's not wandering through "Skyrim" for the umpteenth time, he can be found writing his latest novel or hunched over a tabletop and cursing as his d20 comes up a nat 1 yet again. axel@gameluster.com

Hi, I am Simon Smith, I am an avid video game fan and love to talk about and discuss games, which is what brought me here. I have been writing about games since 2012, mostly I enjoy spending my time writing about the Nintendo Switch but I also enjoy the 3DS as well as the Playstation 4. These days I cover most things from news, to reviews (I always have something in the works) to random pointless opinion pieces.

Hey, I’m Nima. I started my adventure with Tiny Toons on a Sega console when I was 5, and since then, I have been passionate about video games. I got my first taste of writing during my college, in our student run zine, NAAM. I was studying architecture, and NAAM was about art and architecture. That was when I realized that I can actually put my two favorite things, games and writing, together. Games are a form of art after all. Now I have the chance to write about the games I play and share my thoughts on them in this platform. I hope you enjoy, and let me know what you think!

Tim Jewett is a 38 year old who's been gaming ever since he can remember. No, seriously, one of his earliest memories involves Donkey Kong Jr. When he's not busy playing a game or building and rebuilding PCs, he's probably trying to figure out the cause of some strange bug or another.
