Declan – The Editor
After a short lived career in the world of television, I decided it was time to do something I loved and combining my two biggest passions; writing and gaming, I emotionally blackmailed Rebekah into being my partner and together we built the Arcade.
I’ve been playing video games since I could hold a controller and mash on a keyboard and long since my days as a toddler gamer, I’ve grown into a full fledged gamer with a passion for beat’em ups, roleplaying and anything that allows me to rub my uber skills into a noob’s face!
When I’m not pretending to be busy playing video games and writing stuff for the Arcade, I can be found trying to fit in with all the cool kids, face planted against a television weeping at the latest episode of one of my many favourite television programmes or begging my cat to like me!
Currently Playing: Guild Wars, Skyrim, Borderlands 2
Favourite Game: Final Fantasy IX
Gaming Idol: Chun Li
Worst Habit: I throw stuff when I lose!
Rebekah – The Webmaster
In a nutshell, I’m a freelance website designer who’s crazy about gaming, sports, and anything that allows my vicious competitive streak to take over in a vageuly acceptable context. When Declan approached me with the idea of creating the Arcade I jumped at the chance to be involved in such a cool project. The incriminating photographs he has of me also played a minor part in my decision.
FPS and strategy games are my drugs of choice, not half because they play up to my God complex. When I’m not gaming, coding or shouting at the people on TV, I’m usually either playing some kind of sport or helping out at an animal shelter.
