Michael "Sniper" Ponicki
: A hardcore gamer since his dad purchased him an Atari 7800 in 1987, Sniper has been ardently following the industry and all of its happenings since. During the early 90's, he spent most of his time in front of a Sega Genesis and 3DO. Later on, he extensively played various other consoles, such as the Playstation, Dreamcast, and Xbox. His knowledge of the gaming industry is expansive, and the games he has played number well into the hundreds.
: Sniper is always looking for a fresh approach to game concepts and design, and has an extremely strong bias
towards games that attempt to come up with new formulas and methods of playing. He always endeavors to take a unique perspective and angle when evaluating a game, and mostly disregards the opinions of others so that he can formulate an unbiased opinion of his own.
: 2d fighters, platformers, and RPGs
: Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Street Fighter II Turbo, Star Control II (Complete list

: Angel's experience with gaming has been diverse, as she has played many different genres across many different platforms. During her youth, most of her time was spent playing SNES and many of Shigeru Miyamoto's classics, such as the Mario and Zelda franchises.

: Simulation, strategy, and platformers
: Skies of Arcadia, The Sims, Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
