Backstory: Born in Indiana, I grew up in the 90’s playing games on my NES (and later consoles) as well as my old Mac. I spent a good deal of high school forsaking most video games for Magic: The Gathering. After spending years pursuing a career in IT, I decided to take my life in a different direction.

Back story: I wasn’t a big gamer until 99 when I got my first console (an Xbox) along with Halo: combat evolved after moving to Indiana from DC. Didn’t have too many friends after
moving so I turned to video games. It’s been 12 years and my gaming knowledge has been growing stronger every day.
Non-gaming hobbies: Laser tag, Cosplay prop building, my three pugs, and engineering legends.

Backstory: I grew up in the shadow of Indiana University, and I absolutely loved it. A Sega Genesis
was given to me as a young kid, and I was hooked for life on video games and technology in general. I
became the “tech support” for my family, which only made my love of computers even stronger, as I
learned more about how they work and how I can upgrade/update them. In 2011 I earned my degree in
Informatics from IU.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: Playing in IU’s alumni bands, memorizing Conan the Barbarian line for line

Preferred Platform: PC
Current Obsession: League of Legends
Backstory: I grew up with music and board games, slowly but surely PC games filtered into my life. Then the blessed Super Nintendo appeared at my grandparents with Mario, Donkey Kong, Batman, etc. Spent my teen years with PC, GBA, PS1, and PS2. My knowledge of the gaming world is far less expansive, but it doesn’t mean I don’t love it just the same.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: Boffer Fighting, studying, drawing, painting, being OCD (Does that count?)

Preferred Platform: PC all the way but I own a PS3.
Current Obsession: D3 and BF3
Backstory: I’ve been a gamer literally all of my life. My brother, who is my elder by 6 years, was a huge gamer and got me into Sega and Super Nintendo at a young age. Some of the other games that he got me playing constantly was CS 1.6 and Diablo 2 along with WoW. (He actually paid me to do MF runs for him on D2 and to level him on WoW). I’ve stuck to gaming and I’m pretty sure I will for the rest of my life. Gamerfront is a way for me to contribute back to the community that I love so much.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: Drawing, building computers, FOOTBALL

Superhero Alter Ego: Sage of the Forest
Favorite Games: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and any other Zelda for that matter, WoW, Metal Gear Solid 1-4, Digimon World Dusk, Halo series, Mario games, tetris.
Preferred Platform: I’m a whore for any platform ;)
Current Obsession: Minecraft/Dragon Age (current) and pie (constant)
Backstory: I was fully submerged into video games the day I realized I could ride a pony in Ocarina of Time. It was a definite “gateway drug” for me, because before I knew it I was spending a majority of my time playing on myN64 and collecting as many games as I could get my hands on. As I grew up I expanded into more systems and more types of gaming from PC gaming, card games like Magic: the Gathering, and table tops like Dungeons and Dragons. My soul was completely sold away the day I began playing World of Warcraft. If you see my soul on ebay, please buy it back and give it to me… I miss it.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: I spend a majority of my free time and money on Cosplaying. Im a fiend for it. Other hobbies include: sewing, writing, reading, theatre, social networking, modeling, studying, and EATING. OM NOM NOM.
Name: Raine (BringTheRaine) Hutchens
Location: Bloomington, Indiana
Role: Senior Editor, Chairman of Epicocity
Superhero Alter Ego: HULK SMASH, with a bit of Iron Man flair.
Favorite Games: Star Wars: The Old Republic, The Diablo series, Starcraft series, Dead Space series, Killzone series, Minecraft, WoW, Resident Evil series, Metal Gear series, Halo series, Super Metroid, Final Fantasy VII and VIII, Call of Duty: Black Ops, Tales of Destiny and many more.
Preferred Platform: I’m leaning toward playing more PC games, though I do enjoy my Xbox 360, better known as the Herpbox Three-Derpty. However, I’ll always be down for some tabletop.
Current Obsession: Dungeons & Dragons, Pathfinder, Blacklight: Retribution, DDO, Lord of the Rings
Bio: I started playing games way back in the day with the Atari 2600. I can remember trying to beat Pitfall with my family, but I couldn’t escape those damn gators. Then I moved through the NES, SNES, and forward, playing Super Mario Brothers, Super Metroid and so forth. I’ve stuck with video games, and I enjoy keeping up with the current industry news. Video games have always seemed to be my forte, so I stuck with them. I’ve also had my fill with tabletop games and TCGs, and I started with those before I picked up a controller. I’m a D&D nerd, play the WoW TCG, the Resident Evil Deck Building Game, and much more. Right now I’m learning to pick up War Machines, and making the move to Hordes as well. I love video games, though I don’t think I’ll ever give up my love for good old tabletop. I went to college for a short while to actively produce video games, but I found that writing and blogging about them is what I do best. I got the opportunity to work with GamerFront and ran with it, turning it into my daily nine-to-five. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: Painting, writing fanfiction, spending time with my family, writing for my blog, making videos, playing bass, going on road trips, heading out to cons, watching anime, and being a complete turbo nerd.
Name: Suton (Kickapoo) Edens
Role: Video Editor, Maker of Dreams
Superhero Alter Ego: The Grapist
Favorite Games: Halo (any of them), Zelda (any of them), Legends of Dragoon, Guild Wars, Black Ops, Donkey Kong, Battle Toads and for the FATALITY Mortal Kombat.
Preferred Platform: Even though it has been doing nothing but farting lullabies lately I still enjoy my 360 but not afraid to go back to the classics.
Current Obsession: Dragon Age
Backstory: Well growing up in Iowa I can’t say there was a vast amount of options to do other than cow tipping, doing something in a corn field ;) or playing some sort of game. It all originated from the good ol’ board games and branched of into card games such as Magic the Gathering and eventually molded itself into the multiple game consoles that there are. So, now I’m hop scotching my way through just about anything I can get my hands on.
Non-Gaming Hobbies: Drawing, Looking Cool, Eating, Sleeping…I don’t think there is anything else beyond that that doesn’t involve a game besides graping people.
