Travis
Co-Host

Travis grew up in the small city of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. He loves all things 80’s and 90’s, but also embraces the modern day nerd culture. He loves Borderlands, Destiny, The Legend of Zelda, and anything retro. Travis has been married to his beautiful wife, Sarah, for 5 years, and although he does not have children, he has a beautiful black lab mix named Marley aka Chomper aka Marley Chomp Chomp aka Mar Mar. Travis went to Marshall University and is currently works in corporate sales. 

Favorite Movie of All Time: I would have to go with the first Back to the Future.

Favorite Video Game of All Time: My favorite video game of all time would have to be Shadow of the Colossus.

Favorite TV Show of All Time: This one is really hard for me.  It is a toss up between LOST, Chuck, and Stranger Things. Ultimately, I have to go with LOST though because it hits me right in the feels.

Favorite Superhero: Honestly, for me it is between Spiderman and Wolverine. Like Maxwell, the 90’s cartoon shows helped me to fall in love with both characters. 

Favorite Game Console: SNES. It refined most of the original titles from the NES, and is easily the best console in my opinion. SNES created so many great childhood memories with games like Super Mario World, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Super Punch Out. 

 

Justin
Co-Host/Web Developer

Justin is a lover of video games. His love for 80s movies and games isn't as strong as Maxwell's and Travis', but he is more of a new-age nerd. He loves Rainbow Six Siege, SOCOM, Rust, and not seeing movies when they're in theaters (unless its a bad comedy.) Justin is engaged and will be married later this year and has a two year old (soon to be three) son. He is a recent college graduate and is currently going to school for his Master's degree.

Favorite Movie of All Time: That is tough... I'd either have to say Empire Strikes Back or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.

Favorite Video Game of All Time: Another tough one. I'm passionate about SOCOM, but I'd probably have to go with Ocarina of Time.

Favorite TV Show of All Time: LOST... easy. 

Favorite Superhero: Easy. Batman. Although the film version has failed me lately. 

Favorite Game Console: Nintendo 64. It gave me Ocarina of Time, Majoras Mask, Smash Bros, AND Goldeneye. 

Maxwell
Co-Host/Social Media Manager

Maxwell grew up in West Virginia, spent a year studying abroad in Japan, and recently moved to Florida. He is always down for watching a good movie in theaters or playing games online with some friends. Jonathan graduated from Marshall University with a Bachelor's in Graphic Design and Japanese. 

Favorite Movie of All Time: It might be Aliens, but Tron: Legacy is close. That music!

Favorite Video Game of All Time: Super Metroid on the SNES.

Favorite TV Show of All Time: Stranger Things, duh.

Favorite Superhero: Has to be Wolverine. If I wasn't already sold on the character after the 90's cartoon then it was Hugh Jackman bringing him to life.

Favorite Game Console: NES. With games like Legend of Zelda, Mario, and Mike Tyson's Punch Out it's hard not to love this console. It paved the way for some of the best games in history while being a big part of my childhood.

Allie Twitch Streamer Allie is a current college student who will graduate at the end of the year. Her hobbies include video games, reading, and baking. She has a hard time describing herself but she play as D.Va on Overwatch so that should give you an idea.  Favorite Movie of All Time: Spirited Away, or Denzel's portrayal of Malcolm X to fulfill my history nerd needs. Favorite Video Game of All Time: Picking just one is impossible. I'd have to go with the Bioshock series, the Fallout series, Skyrim, or the Last of Us.   Favorite Superhero: Batman Favorite Game Console: I'm going to say Super Nintendo because that's the first console I was introduced to.
