Jabber / Google Talk: Scott Robertson


Scott Robertson has been an avid gamer for well over a decade now, despite not being two decades old himself. Receiving an N64 when he was six led him down the road he walks today, as his infatuation with Mario Kart 64 soon turned into a deep passion for all video games. After discovering the perfect blend of game-playing and having a social life in high school, and leaving his WoW phase behind him, he spent his first year away from his Midwestern home going to college on the East Coast. Upon returning home, he began writing about games back in July of 2012, discovering he had a knack for them. His all-time favorites include Knights of the Old Republic, the Battlefront series, NBA 2K11, Fallout 3, the Backyard Sports series, and The Simpsons: Hit & Run. You can find Scott on Steam as Reverend Jones, on Xbox Live as Scotsman716, and on Twitter @srobertron.
