Webmaster at Geeky & Genki
Raised by wolves in the wilds of Detroit, Ed’s geeky fate was sealed in 2nd grade, when a friend showed him the inserts from Expedition to the Barrier Peaks during recess. Since then, he’s wasted a lot of time roleplaying, reading comic books (and a lot of really bad fantasy novels), watching Hong Kong films and Anime, and, well, being a geek. In spite of being (arguably) Geeky & Genki’s most curmudgeonly member, Ed harbors a secret love for sappy anime like Kimagure Orange Road and everything Takahashi Rumiko has ever done.

    Interesting game concept, but Kyle sounds like he’s 15! And Clyde is silent? Hmmmm…
