CommanderVideo (aka Alex Neuse) is a self-proclaimed "vidiot" who wears the title proudly. With a collection of over 1500 good games and only a handful of stinkers, The Good Commander uses his 30+ video game consoles to play them on (usually beating the pants off of Cannon Fodder in the process). As an industry professional, heading up Gaijin Games, he believes that to make good games, developers need to play more games, whether AAA, A, or P for Poopy--there is always something to be learned. CommanderVideo firmly stands by his notion that sometimes a really good video game is just awesome.
Cannon Fodder is a man of one interest. If it isn't virtually represented, Cannon Fodder doesn't care. This, naturally, renders him socially inept. Having played video games since the early days, Fodder has found certain truths to be self-evident: games are nothing without good controls, the best video games have yet to be made, and Commander Video's gamerscore will always pale in comparison to Cannon Fodder's (see below). Fodder tends to focus his time on console games, because computers are expensive and problematic. Lastly, he likes to argue the merits of all kinds of games. Which is why he takes valuable time out from his video gaming to submit content here.
As a child, The Anguaji quickly graduated from reading words to reading BASIC programs out of Commodore Format magazine. Showing up to college with a pentium tucked expectantly under one arm, she quickly became disheartened when she realised games programming probably involved numbers. Since then, she has chosen to amass Nintendo handhelds obsessively and live vicariously through the lads at BVG. In real life, Anguaji is a musician who gigs occasionally for very little money.
