About Raz Raufone of us since 1:41 PM on 12.03.2010

Raz Rauf hails from London, England. He's been into video games ever since tampering with his brother's Commodore 64. He broke the cassette deck, effectively destroying his brother's passion for gaming, and never looked back.

Though a player of all genres, Raz is sadly a master of none. He loves a good long story, but due to increasing time constraints, he barely ever gets to finish them, and typically ends up playing fighting games instead.

Amongst many other things, he has a soft spot for Sega, SNK, and anything retro. Oh and sometimes he'll translate a thing or two.
