Bio: One of the plucky original members of TGSN who started way back in 2003 (all credit to Jon and Mike who actually founded the thing), games are my passion. I freelance for Gamesradar and PSM3, and other non-gaming publications, and have work experience writing for Xbox World 360, SFX, and Radio Times. I get paid rarely, but it’s my ultimate goal to play EVERY GAME EVER.

Bio: Having joined TGSN in 2007 it is great to be back now after the short hiatus.

Favorite Game[s] of all time: The Call of Duty franchise, Forza 4, Singularity, Roller Coaster Tycoon

Bio: I joined TGSN in late 2011 but I've been writing my own reviews since 2007 when I picked up a copy of Xbox Magazine and thought to myself "I can write about video games just as well as these guys, I'll give it a shot." I then wrote my first review, I believe it was Left 4 Dead...looking back on it, it was terrible! My writing has significantly improved since then. When I'm not playing video games I'm usually either playing guitar or fulfilling my need for speed on a winding country road on the outskirts of San Francisco. 


Name: Scott Pell

Position: Freelance Writer

Favorite Game[s] of all time: Jet Grind Radio, F-Zero GX, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Shadow of the Colossus, Mass Effect 2

Bio: I'm from Traverse City Michigan, which is where I still live. I currently work at a Target department store as a electronic sales representative, go figure. I've been a fan of video games my whole life, I don't remember what the first game I ever played was, but I do remember it was the coolest thing ever. I got started writing about video games in a journalistic format when I saw one of my professors while walking down the hallway, he also happened to be the faculty adviser for the college paper. Having already taken his class before, he recognized my writing ability and demanded that I be apart of the paper. I've been ranting and raving about video games ever since.
