Xavier Martin DemersXavier Martin Demers

French Canadian/Jamaican lover of all things digital. I've been gaming since around the time I could walk, and analyzing gameplay since around the time I could speak. Currently a biochemistry student at the University of Toronto as well as a print model. Looking to complete the triforce by coming out with new gaming articles and insights for community enjoyment. My background and interest currently lies in Overwatch, having been a coach and player since beta. "I hope to be of assistance" -F.L.U.D.D.

Taha ZaidiTaha Zaidi

Pizza. Music. Baseball. Wrestling. Netflix. If it's considered unhealthy, immature, or a waste of time, I'm probably addicted to it. Also, I write about esports sometimes.

Michael CzarMichael Czar

Polish-Canadian game enthusiast. I've been entrenched in gaming as long as I can remember, with my first ever game being Pokemon Yellow and my most played game being Borderlands 2 (3000+ hours). Some other key favourites of mine are Transistor and Night in the Woods, but I spend stupid amounts of time playing Overwatch. I hope to continue to be part of film, gaming, and writing in the future.

Jason RodriguezJason Rodriguez

I'm a contributor for various sites under the Enthusiast Gaming umbrella: Destructoid, Dailyesports.tv, and Flixist. Games. Movies. Travel. History. Warhammer. Dad jokes. All around nerdy stuff. You name it, I'll happily chime in.

I don't have any backed Kickstarter projects to disclose, although I used to be a CM for a local MMO -- this was way back in 2006. I also used to be really good in Counter-Strike, and I mean "bunny hop to avoid AK-47 bursts and shotgun AWP you in the face" good. Then I got old.

A console gamer gone rogue. Collector of retro games, pun and dad joke enthusiast. My spotify playlists are out of control. Rocket League anyone?

Kevin CarignanKevin Carignan

Kevin has been a fan of fighting games since he first walked up to a Marvel vs. Capcom cabinet at the tender age of 8 at the local arcade. (Kids ask your parents what an "arcade" is) He may not be very good, but that doesn't stop him from enjoying them.

Raphael BastekRaphael Bastek

Just another talking head on the internet, occasionally spouting off thoughts about video games. Some recent obsessions include Persona, Overcooked, and, once and forever, Dragon Warrior VII.

To unlock him, you must first beat the game on Very Hard difficulty without losing a life. Then, he will challenge you. You must defeat him in this battle to unlock him for play in Arcade and Versus modes.
