A secretly eccentric college student who writes occasionally for Gamehubs and mostly plays shooters on PC. His gaming interests also extend to sneaking around in sizeable environments, slashing at things and commanding glorious armies. He prefers his turn-based strategy games to involve miniatures and dice however, and hopes to experience the whole of NieR: Automata soon.
