Benn – theflamey

Father of two, rotund, bearded, wannabe gamer. My first gaming experience was when my dad brought home a ZX Spectrum and from that moment I was hooked. I keep thinking to myself I should really grow up but who am I kidding, it’s part of who I am. Game collector and interested by retro emulation, my latest addiction is to insert coin clothing thanks, in part, to my friend and co-founder Lopez.

Asa – Lopez

I’m in my 30s now but still have no intention of growing up. I like films, computer games, books and comics, with some drinking and football thrown in there for good measure. I also have a small addiction to geeky t-shirts which I’m trying to overcome but failing at due to the sheer number of awesome ones out there tempting me (Sans beard).

Alan – theJohn

A 40 something, silver haired fox, with a love of gaming, technology, films, children (my own) and women (my wife). I have experienced a good 30 years of the gaming world, worked within the gaming sector and played with myself and others for many hours. My opinion doesn’t count, but it’s mine none the less.

Stephen – Colonelkatafi
Chief Editor

Hi, I’m Steve and I love anything to do with the 80’s! Music, movies, games, you name it. I haven’t been writing long but I think I’ve found my new passion. I enjoy writing about games and connecting to the gaming community, be it creators, developers or fellow writers. I have a young family who are, and always will be, my greatest and proudest achievement!

Ben – Ben.tendo

A thirty year old “adult” with a Zelda wallet, Pokémon text alert, and still games like he’s a six year old (anyone for a game of Plok? No?). Started off on a Commodore 64 and now feels that cassettes took less time to load than most online games do. Mostly into Nintendo and Retro, but still dabbles on his Xbox One and PS4 when anything different comes out. His guilty gaming pleasure is soundtracks, so you will probably see them mentioned in most reviews/blogs as he feels they’re a forgotten aspect of the overall experience. Oh; and don’t challenge him to a game of Mario Kart, because he will thrash you (or so he likes to think anyway)…

Harriet – DaggersMcTimbers

Super intense, mega nerdy, easily excited 27 year old hardware nerd with a heart of gold and a mean streak. I love video games, live action role-play, red wine, equal rights, board games, D&D, people and dogs. I mostly just hate onions and bad people. Eyeliner is usually sharp enough to cause a paper cut. Favourite games include (but are not limited to) the Elder Scrolls series from Arena onwards, Sea of Thieves, the Fallout series from Fallout 3 onwards, Destiny and Ark: Survival Evolved. I’ll try anything once!

Patrick – Pat_mandu
Lead Contributor

What’s Up Everybody, I’m Patrick and it may seem weird to say but I love Stories! Games, Books, Film, all of it. If it’s got a good story or an over-the-top ridiculous romp, I’m in. I love writing about my experiences with stories and even do a bit of fiction myself. Also certified coffee and Irish whiskey expert.

Trevor – Surrealrager

SUP! My name is Trevor I’m 28 and from Ohio. I grew up playing Mario on NES and SNES then Crash Bandicoot on PlayStation just to name some favorites. I love spicy food and trying new things. Nintendo Switch is my current favorite console. I’ve always wanted to write reviews so I’m happy to be on board with Two Beard Gaming!

James Baldwin

Since I was a young lad I’ve grown up playing Nintendo. But now, instead of just messing around with them and having a laugh (It’s okay, I still do), I also write and review about them; a true passion of mine.

VR specialist

Father of two (cats), skinny fat at best, patchy bearded, slightly dubious gamer. I’ve owned pretty much every console since the NES and that includes a NEOGEO Pocket! These days, if i’m not still seeking out Korok seeds, i’m in (slightly fuzzy) PSVR heaven. Looking forward to sharing my thoughts with anyone who might care.
