Alex Co – Editor-in-Chief
-Favorite Games: Battlefield franchise, Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter II, Lunar, Final Fantasy IX and whatever Naughty Dog cooks up.
Alex Co has been infatuated by games ever since he first held his hands on a keyboard and control pad. Not only did it escalate when he grew up playing fighting games in the arcades, but it was enough to convince him that covering games is what he wanted to do for a living until the day he can say “game over.” Nowadays, you can see him playing the latest multiplayer game, and calling everyone “noobs” for no good reason, tackling the latest AAA action-adventure game, watching the latest horror film or educating his two daughters that gaming is one of life’s essentials regardless if people believe him or not.

After living in two continents and having worked for various multinationals and the British government, she decided to take a leap of faith like Ezio Auditore and recently settled for freelancing in the games industry. She’s proud to be a part of PSLS.
