Writer for indie games and business / financial news for the gaming industry. Programmer and Co-Founder of Dropstr Inc and the leviathyn network. Ronald Hoffecker
Hello fellow gamers! I am one of the owners of Leviathyn and can also be classified as a Mega Man fanboy. I enjoy discussing, debating, and sharing my opinion on all things gaming as well as tech, pro wrestling, and comic books. Just to list some of my favorite things in those categories: Diablo 2, Final Fantasy VII, Mega Man X4, Phantasy Star Online, Eddie Guerrero, Triple H, Iron Man, Green Lantern, Moon Knight, Windows Phone, and The Guyver. Never forget The Guyver.Editors Blake Anglin
A frequent Top 10 list writer and uber SNES fan, Blake can still to this day be found playing Final Fantasy VI on occasion, even though it is probably bad for his health at this point (we’re not sure he knows there are actually other games out there). When not writing, editing or gaming, Blake enjoys bothering people with his guitar, drinking more than is healthy and talking about this totally crazy weather. Blake is also very involved in the Game Informer community, and has a sick Minecraft world he would love to show you. Christian Belland
Hey everyone! I'm a film grad who loves writing, video games, violent movies, and climbing mountains. You can find me here at Leviathyn and also as a contributor for New Gamer Nation.
I've been gaming and writing my entire life. Some of my favorites are Final Fantasy X, Kingdom Hearts, Resident Evil 4, Dead Space, The Last Of Us, and the Mass Effect trilogy. Stephen Pollard
Stephen is a lifelong gamer and devoted follower of Sephiroth. He spends his days fantasizing about protecting the realm from evil and being the most legendary 5'4" swordsman in all the land. Aside from gaming, he loves playing music, especially drums, since it gives him an excuse to hit stuff as hard as he can. Tiff MacDonald
A girl from the frozen tundra of the north that they call Canada. She has a number of clashing interests including, cats, fantasy literature, rap music, sports and video games whilst she spends the days studying commerce at Memorial University of Newfoundland. Sarah Blackburn
Feel free to call me Sarah or Zippy, I don’t mind! Having now finished a Masters in Games Design, I have too much time to spend on games. But that's not a bad thing, right?! Whether it's running from Dragons, battling with a Lancer or even pretending I can actually play guitar, I love games and I probably always will, and writing about them makes it even better!
When not writing (or working) I watch movies and enjoy the occasional bout of sunlight (if I'm lucky enough for sun in England!)Writers Andy Bain
I enjoy writing, reading, gaming, writing stuff about games, cosplaying, bushwalking, oh and sleeping. Basically I spend my days slaving away at my computer ShadowLord. Adam Barge
Growing up in the forests of England, hunting my own food with nothing but rocks and determination left me with a lot of spare time to play video games. Thankfully I left the woods for the city, and now I have enough time to write about the video games I play. I split my time between acting and writing ever since I graduated from university last year and both pursuits are a hell of a lot of fun. Will take on any and all challengers in Pokemon, your shorts aren't as comfy as mine! Adam Birch
My name is Aaron I'm 19 and for as long as i can remember i have been playing video games. My other passions include TV, movies and anime. Adam Clark

I've been playing video games since before I could walk and while the games I play may have changed I still love gaming. I started off playing Wold of Warcraft at a young age but after my allowance stopped covering subscription fees I moved onto RTSs and RPGs. Now I write for several companies and developers. Alexander Guittarr
In a hazy cloud of incense and steam, with tables patterned in paisley, a tall ginger relaxes in her natural habitat. Both a master in tea brewing and fighting games, she will, not uncommonly, lure guests in with the comfort of hojicha steeped in porcelain only to shatter their egos after a game of Power Stone. Amber Hunt
Video game journalist. Has vegan superpowers. Coffee enthusiasts. But then again, who isn't? Aaron Jackson
My name is Austin Marquette. I am a college student in Portland Oregon. I love playing and talking about all types of video games. I am very excited to have the opportunity to write about what I love! Aaron Randolph
Aaron Randolph (Aaron Randolph
) has been posting videos to Leviathyn for a year now, and he's pretty sure they've simply forgotten to fire him. Pantsless Shorts is his gaming entertainment video production group consisting of himself and the people he's blackmailed into helping him. When he's not making videos, he likes to occasionally write articles that so far have not gotten him blacklisted by any major company or group, but damn it, he'll keep trying.
Five favorite games in no particular order:
Chrono Trigger, The Pandora Directive, Super Metroid, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Resident Evil 2 Austin Small
Lover of all games retro and brimming with narrative, especially when they come with dancing plant-life and memorably vexing fairy companions. Adam Sykes

I love to indulge in games and nerdy collectibles!
*butterfly flies out of wallet*
I really enjoy TV series such as The Walking Dead, Adventure Time, Game of Thrones and Family Guy. I also love anime and cosplaying it's super time consuming but worth it. Brandon Blum

Born in raised in the windiest and coldest city in Canada. Reviewing games keeps me warm at night Ben Harrison
Writer, Journalist and lover of video games, table top games, and games all around. Benjamin Kathwaroon
Gamer. Graphic Designer. Nerd. Professional Netflix-er. Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the reason why I have trust issues. Brian Loyless
I have been a gamer pretty much my whole life. I started with the Super Nintendo and have worked my way up to the current generation. I love to talk about anything game or nerd culture related. Brett Schaffer
Hello there! I'm a video game fanatic who loves the Fable series. When not writing, you can find me either saving Albion or battling the Darkness in Destiny. Ben Watkin
Agnew probably spends too much time gaming, probably. As a result he tends to know what he is talking about when it comes to everything games related, even if the convoluted Kingdom Hearts plot keeps him up at night,. Carson Deshevy
I'm a print journalism student and (aspiring) games journalist with a passion for gaming, and a love for all things "geek." Chris Johnson
Chris is a 28 year old San Diego resident who spends equal parts of his day eating, sleeping and breathing video games, NBA basketball and death metal (in no particular order, of course). Cassidee Moser
A game enthusiast and movie snob, Cassidee’s obsession with geek culture is one that probably calls for an intervention. Christopher Mrkvicka
Chris is a U.S. Army veteran and current business student, with more than 25 years of gaming experience. He credits Halo 2 with helping to keep his sanity through a deployment to Afghanistan and will never turn down a game of R.B.I. Baseball or Tecmo Bowl. When he's not playing games, Chris can often be found combing through the financial statements of different companies to better understand their business practices. Cameron Patel
I am a business student who really loves the video game industry and writing. Some of my favorite games are Kingdom Hearts, Mass Effect, and Zelda. Chris Renner
Chris spends far too much time consuming media (be it movies, TV, books, games, or comics) and then spends a damn sight more time dissecting these in his head, leading to a series of writings that are just fragmented and nonsensical enough to make him a master of the overused comma and the unnecessary parenthesis (a title whose merits can justifiably be debated), as well as a huge fan of run on sentences. Calum Sim
Playing games since he could wrangle a controller off his brother, Calum is an overly cynical Irish Man who holds a secret place in his heart for Alpha Protocol and is still waiting for Jade Empire 2. Chernenka Sinkfield
Chernenka is a hard core gamer since 16 months old. She is part of a doa 5 clan. When she is not ps3 and xbox gaming, she is on her pc playing games all day. When she is not gaming she is watching anime and reading manga. She is a anime and video game writer that hopes to be in the video game industry. When she is home she likes hanging with friends and family is her thing. She also is going to a university for business studies. Chad Willyerd
Born and raised in the state of Colorado. Industry conversations are some of my favorite things to discuss. I like open-world adventures just as much as my rigid narratives, and will often looks for shenanigans to be had in both. Anything else just ask! Daniel Field

What’s up Leviathyn readers,
Name’s Ethan. I like to make things up. It’s my trade, my passion, and my lifeblood. I work as a screenwriter and director, but in my free time, I like playing and discussing the amazing world of video games, and I look forward to getting know more about all of our awesome readers at Leviathyn.
I’m open to talk about any and all topics of discussion, should any of you care to engage me. Everything is fair game. Except the How I Met Your Mother finale. I’ll talk about the Middle East, but I won’t talk about that.
Cheers, fellow gamers. Long live Nintendo. Elliot Selkirk
Most of the time you will find me glued to my Xbox One - sports games are my passion, although I enjoy a bit of everything. I have consumed more hours on Football Manager than I care to admit, and I am obsessed with Telltale Games, specifically The Walking Dead series, of which I own way too much merchandise.

I've been a lifelong gamer and some of my favorite games include The Last of Us, Metal Gear Solid 2, Journey, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Uncharted 2. Some of my other interests include consuming far too much literature and writing high quality fiction (maybe). Justin Klotzbach
Jakejames Lugo is a freelance writer who loves playing video games and exploring the many awesome things in the gaming industry. Jasmine Odenat
If Jasmine isn't writing articles, then you'd better believe she's playing video games . After having spent nearly all of her life with a PlayStation in her household, she knows what games to look out for. She knows which games are innovative, ground-breaking, and most importantly memorable. She also loves to talk about her personal collection of games and wants to share them with you all! And in the rare moments that she's not playing video games, then she's probably... I don't know, looking at some weird Japanese stuff. Jeremy Peeples

Ms. Barthelemy has mastered all there is to know about the space time continuum and frequently spends way to much time debating why the official Zelda timeline is wrong, because it is. She also spends way too much time building houses and awesome kingdoms in the Sims 3 and is dedicating her life to creating Skyrim. When she's not wasting her precious youth she spends time bonding with friends and family watching all the sports and spamming GRR Martin about finishing the Song of Ice and Fire series even though he might kill a Stark. Michelle Driver
Michael is a lover of Film and TV with an interest in the abstract, so Mr Lynch fits the bill perfect. He is new to journalism but is always looking to improve. Expect views on art-house cinema, top five lists, and the latest casting news. Michael offers a perspective from rainy old London, so keeping up with American times is always fun. Michael Elliott

Sometimes I also wear outside people clothes, but not as often.
3rd Year Dramatic Writing BFA in progress. SCAD. Pierre Fouquet
Pierre is passionate about games and has been playing them ever since Age of Empires Gold was pushed in front of him. He then found out about Halo on the Original Xbox. After a nice stint on console, he moved back to where it all started, the PC. This has not stopped his love for Halo or other console exclusives, as consoles still have a special little place in his heart. Outside of games, he is still a massive nerd, always has been and has always been proud of it!
He also podcasts on www.abilityscorecast.com Patrick Lowe

He likes other things too (books, movie, and amateur programming) but they aren't as interesting as games.

Just a tad bit crazy, Stephanie Reyes is dedicated to bringing you the latest news, the freshest games, and the wildest most honest reviews your dumb face has ever seen. She also refers to herself in the third person, but this is just the phase. She will get over it.
