Hello? Does this thing work? It's smaller than my BT Cellnet phone from 1999 anyway...Believe it or not, my first gaming experience was on the ZX Spectrum 128k (+2 don't you know) so that makes me at least 78 (ish).  My claim to fame is that I'm actually in the Sims....yes I know everyone who has ever had the Sims, was technically in the Sims, but I really actually sang a song in Simlish - EA sent me the translation and everything! I was also in Saint's Row The Third but I'm still to get around to playing it...

My new gaming obsession is of course, the Switch. I love Mario Kart, Paladins, Rocket League, Zelda, and a bunch of indies that I'll go into another time.

I play any console that is known, or rumoured, to have a Sonic game! And with Sonic Mania on Switch how can I resist? I am an avid retro video game collector, scooping up anything with a controller that outputs a pixel to a TV, from pong console to a modern gaming PC and everything in between. Despite Growing up on SEGA, the Switch has definitely become my little home away from home - quite literally. It's my new platforming haven, plop me on a desert island, place some Power Moons and I’m happy.

I've been a gamer since the days of the BBC micro and I've been terrible ever since. Totally useless at almost all games but I do enjoy having my backside handed to me on a regular basis by friends. Still refuse to do this whole online gaming thingy with those pesky kids - with the exception of Paladins. Paladins is good.

Emily Zelda Frood

I am what you would call the palate cleanser of the podcast – every now and again I turn up to turn tables and give a fresh perspective on the Switch. Although sometimes that backfires – I’ll think that I know a fair amount about games and then listen to Anton talk about the most obscure retro console from 1982 that you could attach to a defibrillator to give game over a whole new meaning. (That definitely doesn’t exist btw. I checked.) My favourite games would have to come from TLOZ series. Majora’s Mask? Perhaps one of the most amazing in the franchise. It could only ever come second Breath of the Wild – which I’m pretty sure I’ve put at least 200 hours into. I love the series so much Zelda is actually my middle name!

Catch me playing Smash Ultimate, Cuphead, or a great indie in my downtime.

I've loved games ever since I unwrapped a Nintendo 64 and a copy of Banjo-Kazooie (which is still one of my all-time favourites). I impulse-bought my Switch the day Mario Odyssey was released and haven't looked back since.

Breath of the Wild is probably my favourite title on the console, but I've sunk a lot of time into Donkey Kong, Mario + Rabbids and indie titles like Into the Beach and Crypt of the Necrodancer.
