Joel S - @WorldofJoel
Owner / Editor in Chief

Although my tastes have changed, and my priorities have shifted, writing and talking about video games is still one of the greatest joys of my life and I'm honored to work with this great group each and every day. 

Jonathan M - @SpectralHunt
Host of the DarkCast & DCI

Jonathan is the host of the DarkCast, DarkCast Interviews, and Gamers Read. He loves books, video games, and superheroes. If he had to pick favorites, they would be Welcome to the Monkey House, Mass Effect, and Superman respectively.

Allen K - @LibrarianGMR
Sr. Managing Editor

Librarian by day, Darkstation review editor by night. I've been playing video games since the days of the Commodore 64 and I have no interest in stopping now that I've made it this far. 

Brian T - @LarcenousLaugh
Sr. Editor / Podcast Host

A failed comic that found his way into a vat of chemicals after the end of a long night, Bri- no, wait, that was the Joker. Rather then a life of crime, Brian has chosen to review video games instead. Yes, he questions his choice nightly. 

Hiram M - @R0mination
Sr. Editor

In several billion years, the universe will run out of energy. All life will be dead, all stars burned out, the universe expanded to its maximum point. An empty, uncaring, unlit nothingness which no one will be around to mourn. Until then, why don’t we have fun and play some games!

Jukka P
Sr. Editor

I'm a Finnish video game enthusiast who was introduced to gaming in the early 80's. What I appreciate the most in games is depth, whether in their gameplay or atmosphere. While not playing, I'm usually drawing at my art board.

Alex M - @MrPanda2002
Sr. Editor

I am a lifelong gamer, having grown up with Nintendo since I was young. My favorite genres are platformers, RPGs, and adventure games. My passion for gaming led to one of the greatest moments of my life, my video game themed wedding!

Jonathan P - @jparis09_

Writer for Darkstation since 2014. I've been playing games my whole life and starting writing about them in 2010. Outside of gaming I also enjoy anime and watching my Philadelphia Eagles let me down every NFL season. 

James Graham

James is a classical composer and an avid student of history and philosophy. His favorite films include The Room and basically anything with Nicolas Cage, which means he should never be put in charge of movie night.

Michael Hoover

Video game nut and general media aficionado. I enjoy many different game genres, but my favorite is the 3D platformer. I listen to punk rock and metal when driving. 


Grant Gardiner

I'm a piano/guitar instructor, I have a black belt in Taekwondo. I'm missing half of my pancreas, I have a soft spot for JRPG's, I'm a recovering Destiny addict, and I'm still waiting on a Xenosaga HD Collection.  

Brandyn Boyd

Studied history. Enjoys playing guitar and video games to ward off ever-persistent existential dread. Really likes RPGs.
