I spent the whole time editing this podcast on a yoga ball. So Gabe, I get you.
Hi, I’m Erika, but since my friend group has like three Erika’s most people just call me Eri. I’m honestly not much of a games player or a writer, so you probably won’t be seeing many articles from me. I mainly came on to edit videos and podcasts and do behind the scenes production work.
I’m a shy girl who’s scared to go out in public alone from the libertarian chaos zone that is New Hampshire, so thankfully I at least have big forests to hide in. Most of my time these days is spent messing around with HAM radio, film photography, general tinkering, going Marie Kondo on my room, working through my book collection, and generally learning about anything and everything that catches my interest.
I got my start in gaming when I was 3 years old when I accidentally glitched out my cousin’s copy of Donkey Kong Country, and have been playing ever since. I have never had current home consoles, so I’m familiar with older systems like SNES and GameCube, and handhelds like GBA and DS, and of course PC gaming.
As far as what I like now, I absolutely love the Hitman reboot, puzzle games, RTS games like Age of Empires II and Starcraft, and digging through libraries of old handheld consoles like the Game Boy and Wonderswan to find what’s good. The way that Hitman blends puzzle aspects with offing rich monsters appeals to me on a very strong level such that I obsess over completing every challenge. RTS games are appealing as a way to tax my brain and my hands’ ability to juggle multiple tasks and make on the fly decisions.
That’s about all there is to know about me! You may not be hearing a lot from me personally, but I’m excited to be here and I hope I can help bring the others’ voices to you!
