Buddy was a journalism major at the University of Alabama. He now spends
his days writing novels that will probably never get published and wishing
he were an extra in an Anthony Hopkins film. He’s been gaming since he can
remember and has owned every console from the NES to the TurboGrafx-16 to,
yes, even the Phillips CD-i. He loves all games, but his favorite genres
are shooters and RPGs. His favorite game is The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of

James was introduced to the world in a city known for its ultra-violence and “Ozzy Osbourne accents”. Rather than facing the perils of the outside world, James quickly took to Video Games and Alcohol (not necessarily in that order). Nowadays you can find him at the Staffordshire University Student’s Union Bar, drinking whiskey and muttering about how he studies Computer Science.

Chris is ridiculous. True story: instead of paying rent one month he bought a Nintendo 3DS. Being a fan of all gaming platforms is tough on his wallet, but he’s a gamer on a budget. He plays his PS Vita or 3DS while on the train to/from work and his Xbox 360 or Wii U when at home. He won his university’s Video Game Olympics competition back in April of 2012 and mentions it whenever he can in conversation. His other interests include comedy, surviving Chicago, and hangin’ out with his pup, Theta.

You’ve just stumbled upon a huge gamer. Anything having to do with the latest games on all systems – Justin loves to play and talk about. From the big guns to the smaller indie titles, he loves’em all. Watch, comment, subscribe, but most of all, enjoy!
Reuben is a student, a nerd and an all round SpaceBadass. When he’s not playing games in his free time he reads anything he can get his hands on, is an aspiring stand-up comedian and makes gaming videos on Youtube. He decied to try writing because it was neater than leaving all of the words in his head, where they were liable to clutter the place up. He’s owned every iteration of the Pokemon franchise (he usually chooses the Grass starter, except Chikorita, because why would you?), completed Borderlands 2 more times than can possibly be good for his mental health and owns a worryingly large collection of gaming reference t-shirts. He usually plays both PS3 and Xbox 360 games, but is probably going to jump to PC for the next generation. He hopes to contribute as much to SpawnFirst as he can, and he feels really stange about writing in third person. He may also have over written his bio.

John is a third year journalism major and a fifth year policy debater, but gaming is his passion. He firmly believes that the PS2 is the finest console ever made and will defend to the death that playing Pokemon is not and never was lame. He owns every current gen console and is excited for the advent of the PS4 and Xbox One. He enjoys action-adventure and survival horror, but can hold his own in a discussion about nearly any genre. He listens to a surprising amount of alternative music and can fix a mean bowl of Frosted Flakes.

Geron studies Graphic and Game Design at GMU, giving him a hands-on look inside game development. His love for games goes back to his preschool days, when he’d sneak away to fight koopas during naptime. He’s got his eyes on Nintendo, but flirts with the work of many others in the industry. When he’s not looking for the last piece of heart, he’s creating artwork for various purposes. Ironically, his first published artwork was in issue #144 of Nintendo Power, when he was 10 years old!

Colton Steury is a musician, writer, and fervent gamer who enjoys most any games, but is especially fond of RPGs, platformers, third-person shooters, and indie games.

Karl loves to go for long walks on the beach and feel the wind in his hair, but when he isn’t imitating online dating profiles he loves to write about games. Having been an avid gamer since the days of the original PlayStation it’s a passion that took a hold of him and one that has never let go. Metal Gear Solid is quite possibly his favourite gaming series having only purchased a PlayStation 3 to be able to play Metal Gear Solid 4.
