Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Joe, I heart you so much right now. And it serves you right for getting sick after eating that crab. He was trying to entertain you while you were stranded on that island! You were so rude! He could have been your lifelong friend. Tsk tsk.

      Out of interest, what direction are you planning on taking this series? Will you do videos with a pair of shackstaff, one playing, one watching along side?

        Yup most likely. I did this one as the pilot, but I think two people bouncing ideas off of each other will be more entertaining
