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.

Zarmena Khan – News & Features Contributor
-Favorite games: Assassin’s Creed franchise, Heavy Rain, LA Noire, GTA: San Andreas, anything action-adventure
Zarmena’s long-term relationship with video games began when she discovered her father’s collection of video games for the Sinclair ZX Spectrum at a time when gaming was “something only boys did.” Discouraged by a culture of non-acceptance, she went on to complete higher education and ended up with a Master of Science degree from the UK, specializing in international business. 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.

A not-so-rare girl gamer, D’yani has loved playing video games in various forms her whole life. She is our own writer Chandler’s lifetime co-op buddy. She plays all the MMOs and open-world RPGs, so her busy husband can play them vicariously through her while still maintaining a job (or two). As a graphic designer and photographer, she loves all the beautiful, deep, and emotional aspects of video games. She is a lover of The Beatles, animals, and being nice.
