avatar 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
avatar 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.


avatar Martine Barthelemy 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.


avatar Paul Popiel Paul is a writer, photographer and gamer who lives outside of Philadelphia. When not running around Azeroth or laughing in evil glee as his players beg for mercy in one of his Call of Cthulhu tabletop sessions, he can be found at conventions or haunting coffee shops working on a novel or short story.


avatar Sarah Blackburn Whether she's taming an army of killer Dodo's in Ark, arguing how Resident Evil 4 is NOT the best in the series or hunting dragons, it's probably fair to say that Sarah spends a lot of time on games. That's can't be a bad thing though! When she's not writing, editing or playing one of her insane game collection, Sarah enjoys freaking people out with her ghoulish SFX creations, curling up with a good book (currently the Game of Thrones series) and organising her card collections. Feel free to say hi sometime!



Writers
avatar Andy Bain Andy's first gaming moments included exploring the weird and exotic terrain in Morrowind. Since then he has immersed himself in numerous fantasy and Scifi RPGs and typically spends his days slaving away at his computer ShadowLord.


avatar Andrew Preble I've been playing games for as long as I can remember. Some of my best memories are from watching my siblings play through Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I'm very open to games and will play just about any genre of game at least once. My favorite game is Dota 2 and I highly enjoying playing MOBAs.


avatar 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.


avatar Callum Agnew 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,.

avatar Devin Pitts-Rogers 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!

avatar Michael Edwards 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.

I've been writing about video games for about four years now, having started at the user blog section over at Gameinformer. I've been a gamer my whole life. My favorite genres are Strategy, Sports, Racing, and Platforming. I speak English, Spanish, and a little bit of Arabic and Japanese, and I love to meet new people and discuss ideas.

avatar Sonny Go My three passions in life are writing, video games, and martial arts. I also have deep appreciation for film and other media. As a writer, I do my best to put most of my thoughts about them up here in Leviathyn, my website, and my Tumblr blog. I also upload videos on my YouTube channel for kicks. I'm primarily a PC gamer, but I also own consoles, a 3DS, and an Android device. Turn-based tactical RPG is my favorite genre and Arcanum is my favorite game of all time.


avatar Stephen LaGioia Steve is a die hard retro, Nintendo, Xbox 360, and PC gamer, and devout metal-head. When he's not rocking some Metallica, burning countless hours on Xbox Live, or getting lost in some Super Smash Brothers, he is usually writing, drumming, or watching his beloved Chicago Bulls or Cubs.


avatar Steve Mortimer A day without laughter is a day wasted


avatar Tyson Jones Video games, comic books, and Asian food are my passions. But I happen to also be a fan of Alternative Music (favorite Band, The Fold,) LEGO themed stuff, and pretty women. Workout whenever possible, and hoping to turn my passions into careers one day. (Ain't that everyone whoever picked up a pen...?)


avatar Victoria Hoyle I am a writer from North Carolina, who recently graduated from NCSU and moved to California. My goal is always to make people smile, and I enjoy the close-knit communities that gaming builds.
