The Crew

Zach Jackson

Co-Founder // Managing Editor

Despite a childhood playing survival horrors, point and clicks and beat ’em ups, these days Zach tries to convince people that Homefront: The Revolution is a good game while pining for a sequel to The Order: 1886 and a live-action Treasure Planet film.
Carlton, Burnley FC & SJ Sharks fan.

Kieran Stockton

Co-Founder // Lead Editor

Kieran is a consummate troll and outspoken detractor of the Uncharted series. He once fought a bear in the Alaskan wilderness while on a spirit quest and has a PhD in synthetic organic chemistry.

Kieron Verbrugge

Assistant Editor

Kieron’s been gaming ever since he could first speak the words “Blast Processing” and hasn’t lost his love for platformers and JRPGs since. A connoisseur of avant-garde indie experiences and underground cult classics, Kieron is a devout worshipper at the churches of Double Fine and Annapurna Interactive, to drop just a couple of names.

Adam Ryan

News Editor

A PlayStation fanboy through and through, Adam has an undying love for all things that come from Sony, the only thing he asks for in return is the ability to fix the spelling mistake he has in his PSN name.

Jordan Garcia

Contributor

Jordan lives and breathes Dark Souls, even though his favourite game is Bloodborne. He takes pride in bashing his face on walls and praising the sun. Hailing from the land of tacos, he is the token minority for WellPlayed.

Arana Judith

Contributor

Arana blames her stunted social skills and her general uselessness on a lifetime of video games. Between her ears is a comprehensive Team Fortress 2 encyclopedia. Her brain remains at large.

Nathan Hennessy

Contributor

Endearingly tepid takes and eclectic tastes, Nathan is always eager to find something to celebrate in games. Keep watch for gushing praise of refined ideas and innovation, and a bit of a whinge about how frustrating JRPGs are and yet ol’ mate cannot get enough. Turn-based tactics titles are his love.

Ash Wayling

Contributor

Known throughout the interwebs simply as M0D3Rn, Ash is bad at video games. An old guard gamer who suffers from being generally opinionated, it comes as no surprise that he is both brutally loyal and yet, fiercely whimsical about all things electronic. On occasion will make a YouTube video that actually gets views.

Eleanore Blereau

Contributor

When Eleanore isn’t trying to figure out how the Earth works she’s trying to pay off her loan in Animal Crossing, complete her Pokedex or finishing one more RPG or platformer. She is a lover of great characters, cute or creative art styles and awesome game soundtracks.

Zac Reardon

Contributor

With his first home console being the PlayStation, Zac grew up on a hearty filling of Gran Turismo, Crash Bandicoot and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2. When he isn’t being sucked in by the newest Yakuza series remaster, he is watching the sportsball as a Green Bay Packers and Sydney Swans supporter.

Holly Buckley

Contributor

When Holly isn’t talking about video games, she is most likely talking about LEGO or Star Wars or Marvel Comics or DC comics. If she’s not talking about these things, she’s most likely taking a nap.

Harrison Tabulo

Contributor

Because Harrison spent his entire education years procrastinating he’s had no choice but to attempt to make a career out of it. His most shameful displays of sweaty power include beating Fable: The Lost Chapters three times in one day and reaching level 99 Fishing in OSRS; both uttering pointless endeavours.

Joshua Rizk

Contributor

Mr Multiplatform just wants everyone to get along. Occasionally he gets called a Sony fanboy but then he spams haters with photos of his Halo, Gears of War, Super Mario and Zelda statues. When he is not gaming he is in legal courts thinking about video games or recording music thinking about games

James Wood

Contributor

From Majora’s Mask to Bloodborne, if your game has an eldritch horror vibe and a pretentious script, James will be there to avidly vouch for it. When he’s not riling up Star Wars Twitter you can find him muttering to himself in the corner about the narrative implications of game mechanics and why themes matter. 

Mark Isaacson

Contributor

Known for his love of Tetris and his continued belief that Kirby is the strongest of anyone and anything, Mark has been around the video game industry for what feels like forever and hopefully for some time yet. If only his skills in Mario Kart were a paid gig, he’d probably have his own island by now. You’ll never walk alone.

Harry Fritsch

Contributor

Harry’s friends got sick of him talking about video games all the time, so he decided to express his passion for them online. When Harry isn’t cosied up with a good fantasy novel, chances are he’ll be grinding his way through a JRPG or obsessively completing a Metroidvania.

Chantelle McColl

Contributor

Chantelle McColl is a writer based in Melbourne, Narrm, who specialises in video games and analysing how they convey memorable narratives and experiences. Dabbling in indie genres like platformers, Metroidvanias and all games story-rich, Chantelle is always on the lookout for the next experimental game. You can find her work on Checkpoint Gaming, Byteside, ScreenHub Australia and on Twitter.

Alex Beaty

Contributor

Alex (they/them) started reviewing games so as to prove to their friends they don’t just play Fortnite. They’re a passionate game dev with a love of games driven by complex narratives and relatable characters.
