Founder of GameLuster. I really enjoy the video game medium and just wanted to 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.

When I'm not talking about my love of Persona, I'm probably playing or writing about games. I'm waiting for the day I can be proud of the DC cinematic universe. Catch me on Tadaima: A Terrace House Podcast for some insights on the best reality TV show on Netflix.

A lifelong devotion to gaming colors every part of me. Id's Doom and Quake, Looking Glass' Thief and System Shock, and Bethesda's The Elder Scrolls influence me the most and are my greatest gaming passions. Thief fan missions are a major inspiration.

23 year old college student at Kutztown University. PS4 is my system of choice, but you can always find my Switch glued to my face. Assassin's Creed is my favorite video game series. I write short fiction stories that are inspired by video games. You can find me reading up on all the latest game releases and listening to Korean pop music (KPop).

I'm a twenty one year old who enjoys video games, writing, and of course, anime. My system of choice is the 3DS but you can find me on the PC, Ps Vita, and PS4! An avid lover of JRPGs, Visual Novels and Indie games, you will always find me with knee deep in a title of some sort.

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.

I have been gaming for as long as I can remember. I have been writing about video games for a few years now, and love it. I am usually playing some kind of JRPG, though I enjoy any game with a great story. My platform of choice is the PS4, though I have come to love the Switch.

I'm a 22 year old UNC Chapel Hill grad who knows more about Pokemon than I do myself. I've been interested in video games from a young age, and they have influenced me my entire life, leading me to study Japanese in college, with a dream of someday being able to translate the games I love so much! I've been a lifelong writer dabbling in both fiction and essay writing and I hope to use it to share my love of video games with the world. In my free time I draw, watch anime, watch other people play video games, or play video games myself, with my favorites including any Pokemon game, Fire Emblem, Persona, Tales of, Okami, Xenoblade Chronicles, Bravely Default, and Final Fantasy 15.

When Collin isn't talking about working at a brewery in Seattle or worrying about grad school, he's throwing more games on to his backlog and looking at headphone equipment that's too expensive. Catch him on Tadaima: A Terrace House Podcast, talking about one of the most binge-worthy shows on Netflix.

From Derby, UK. Huge fan of Life is Strange, Night in the Woods and the Witcher series. If I'm not playing one of those games on a loop, I'm usually watching The Simpsons, at the pub, or trying to coax my dogs into playing Overwatch with me.
