Hello, welcome to my page! My name is Ethan, but... I guess my nickname is Trench...? Whatever you prefer, I suppose. First and foremost: I am a Christian. I'll stand for my beliefs, and thus I ask you this: Please no swearing, rude comments, or overall immature behavior, thank you. I believe I joined Game Informer online about a year and a half ago, though I have been a magazine subscriber for about three or four years. I think the site is great, and there are a ton of great people to talk to.
I have been playing video games for as long as I can remember. I can't quite tell you the first game I've ever played, but the oldest game that I can remember playing was Xmen: Mutant Academy. I currently own an Xbox 360, Playstation 3, PS Vita, Xbox, Gameboy, and a Mac. I play all sorts of games, too. Mainly shooters, - thanks Microsoft -, but I also enjoy some action, strategy, puzzle, and racing games.
My Top 10 Games Of All Time
1: Bioshock: Infinite
2: Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy
3: Halo 2
4: Spiderman 2
5: Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves
6: Jak II
7: Borderlands 2
8: Burnout Paradise
9: Halo 3
10: Portal 2
Runner Up: Halo 4
Runner Up: Battlefield 3
Runner Up: Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
Mass Effect 2
Runner Up: Uncharted 2
Runner Up: Fallout 3
Runner Up: Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare
Also something to note: is that I far, far, far, far, far, far, far prefer Splinter Cell to it's competitor, Metal Gear Solid. Now I know some of you may hate that, but it's my opinion, and you have your own, so why don't we just let it go? It's video games after all, not political parties or war factions. ;)
I also write a blog series called User Spotlight, and while I haven't written one in a while, you can check the previous iterations here:
User Spotlight: Episode 1
User Spotlight: Episode 2
User Spotlight: Episode 3
User Spotlight: Episode 4
User Spotlight: Episode 5
There are tons and tons and TONS of awesome people on GameInformer Online, so many in fact, if I tried to write them all down... well... it'd be a lot.
(Bios coming soon)
nightcrawlerash13 - Ash is one of the nicest people I know. I don't think I've seen... well... read any negative emotion, really, and that's a feat I certainly can't-nor try- to accomplish. She also puts!!!!! Alot!!!!! of!!!! ! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'s.
zbad805 - You know that really funny and awesome guy at your school? I don't, I'm homeschooled. But if there were such a guy: Zack would be him. He's awesome in every sense of the word.
ZERO - Max is another cool guy. He loves Halo-almost-as much as I do, which is reason enough to be on this list, but he's also a huge Borderlands fan (as am I, the personality resemblance is uncanny! ;D), which is also quite awesome. Oh, and he likes Macs.
GL4DOS - Matt and I have our differences (mostly over which certain stealth series is better than the other certain stealth series *cough* *cough* Splinter Cell ftw *cough *cough*) ... Yeah, the cough is getting worse... man. I should get that checked out. Wh-while I go to the doctor you all just sit there and reflect on how awesome Matthew is and I'll be right back.
Amarok - Amarok is a mid-sized pick up truck built by VWCV. The Amarok range consists of single and double cabs, combined with rear wheel drive or 4Motion four-wheel drive, and is powered by gasoline or Turbo Charged Direct Injection diesle engines. VWCV considers the Toyota Hilux, Nissan Navara, Mitsubishi Triton to be Amarok's competitors.
Vaas - Colton is another cool guy. He loves the new Tomb Raider games, and shares a lot of the same interests as I. He's fun to play a wealth of different games with, and is just plain awesome.
Schonerdesaster - Skyla makes really awesome graphics and banners. You can check them out on her page. She's incredibly talented, and just as awesome as everyone else here.
Gabe - <-- This
Abner Doon - Abby pls. You don't need a bio. You're too awesome for it!
Nik - Another GIOer I often... share my opinions with, Nikolay has like... the coolest name out of every South African gamer I know. And I know two SA gamers, oddly.
The Bro - <-- This guy, is related to ^ that guy Zack. 'Nuff said. Oh, he also loves cars, Top Gear, and Forza. So I guess it wasn't quite... 'Nuff.
Volt Devilray - Volt is also awesome. He's the only guy I know that is 95 percent PC and not console (Aside from his as of now broken Wii). But that doesn't make him any less awesome than anyone else. :)
Carson - Likes Spaghetti and Giraffes. His review score system is confusing, but it makes sense once he explains it to you. He loves Breakdown, I really don't know why, but to each his/her own I guess.
PON - *Unavailable*
Cpu XI - Is Cpu XI. And Deadpool. And Luigi-Kirby.
Edward Roivas - Ed writes tons of reviews; more than anyone I know. He plays mainly older games, and Wii games, but I guess that is considered old now isn't it? ;D
Shooterboy23 - Snakey Snake words that Snake would probably say sums up Shoob.
Paradigmthefallen - Para loves Dead Space and hates Uncharted. He gets attacked for that, which still today confuses me. O_O
CMONEY - He's from the south. That's all you need to know. ;)
Companion Cube - Listen to this
And many, many more! If you call now- ugh... sorry. I was on a roll and... you understand.
Games I Look Forward To In 2013:

"Great! Your ability to walk short distances without dying will be Handsome Jack's demise!" -Clap Trap, Borderlands 2
