Who are all of these people?

Owen Faraday

I’m Owen Faraday, a pseudonymous writer based in wonderful London, England and the person most at fault for the existence of Pocket Tactics. I’ve done (and do) quite a number of things but writing and games are what I love. Besides this site, you can find my writing at Kill Screen, Wired.co.uk, Eurogamer, and a few other places.

Thanks for reading Pocket Tactics. I really appreciate it.

Dave Neumann

Deputy editor Dave Neumann really needs to write a bio.

Sean Clancy

Sean Clancy is a Boston guy, freelancer guy, games guy, guy guy. But not any sort of weird, trying-way-too-hard-to-be-masculine-guy kind of guy. Likes games with just a few numbers, maybe some sort of “playing” with “roles.” Has also scribed for the likes of Paste Magazine,GamesRadar.com, and DigBoston. Direct your tweet-thoughts to@SClancy.

Kelsey Rinella

Kelsey Rinella is a stay-at-home dad of children born in 2008 and 2009 with a history of higher education in Philosophy and Cognitive Science. In games, he prefers a deliberate pace and is attentive to interface choices and the fit between mechanics and theme. Kelsey currently plays on an iPhone 4 and an iPad 2 (on which the sound is spotty), an XBox 360, and various tables. He fondly remembers -tal, Sid Meier’s Civilization series, King’s Bounty, Counter-Strike, Magic: the Gathering, the Zelda series, Warhammer: Chaos in the Old World, Ascension: Chronicle of the Godslayer, and Por-.

Phil Scuderi

Phil Scuderi started gaming on the Intellivision and despite his better judgment has never stopped. Originally from New Orleans, he now lives in Tampa and thus has spent most his life uncomfortably warm. He enjoys FPS’s, RPG’s, adventure and strategy games. Phil has written forGamers With Jobs, The Escapist, and a smattering of unwary academic outlets. His life’s priority is to eat, drink and be merry. Phil currently runs the show over at our PC gaming sister site Red Door Blue Key.
