Jason Love - Lead Editor

My earliest memories of gaming involve a Nintendo Entertainment System, a television that still used tubes, a family room, and my brother. Before we even had a game where two people could play together, I remember sitting and watching my brother play Super Mario Bros. Occasionally, he’d let me play a life or two, but that was all I needed to get hooked. Pretty soon, games like Blaster Master and Final Fantasy were finding their way onto my Christmas list alongside the Transformers and GI Joes. I used to play so much that my family nicknamed me “Nintendo Boy”, a moniker that occasionally still gets brought up today. From the Nintendo I moved on to playing PC games, thanks once again to my family. I was too young at the time to really understand them, but my mom used to play the “Zork” series and I’d sit next to her while she played trying to contribute and follow along as best as I could. Nowadays I mostly play Playstation and Nintendo DS games, although I still occasionally sneak in a PC game or two and a large portion of my co-op time comes from playing with friends.

Aside from gaming, I also enjoy watching movies, listening to music (anything but country), re-learning to play bass, and reading authors like Neal Stephenson, Neil Gaiman, China Miéville, and whatever good science fiction/fantasy novel comes my way. It is my hope that one day I might be able to switch jobs from government contractor to full-time games journalist or freelancer. A man can dream, a man can dream…

Paid DLC in the works

Local Co-Op Patch Coming to Alienation Next Week

Housemarque's Alienation may well be my favorite twin-stick shooter released this year. From the world progression to the loot progression, there's always a new challenge and better gear waiting just around the corner. While the game has been an online co-op only affair since its launch, the much requested local co-op option will be getting added in a free update on July 5.

GOD EATER: Resurrection Out Now on Vita and PS4

While many folks are familiar with the Monster Hunter series of games, Bandai Namco's Gods Eater Bust title was largely overlooked in the States. That may, in part, have been due to it being a PSP only game. The remastered version, GOD EATER: Resurrection, was released yesterday on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, so perhaps it will be able to reach a wider audience this time around.
