Ben Runnings

When not criticizing some obscure aspect of a game, Ben enjoys relaxing by playing in the infinite pool of Super Mario Maker. He was a Genesis kid growing up but Ocarina of Time made him realize how awesome gaming truly is. Hobbies include: continuing to learn Japanese, videogames (duh), reading (in Japanese and English), writing (also duh), and rock climbing. He is also a secret member of the PC gaming master race.
