All that plus more on this Mashcast.
Jarret is Executive Director as well as one of the founding members of Mash Those Buttons. He plays all types of games, but tends to lean more toward FPS, Stealth, and Combat games.
The only things Rob has been doing longer than gaming are breathing, sleeping, eating, and reading. RPGs were what made him view games as an experience instead of a distraction, but these days he likes and plays every genre gaming has to offer.
Outside of his usual reviews and articles on MTB, you can find Rob on the weekly Mashcast and frequenting Twitter.
Nick has been a gamer since the 8-bit days and a member of the MTB editorial team since January of 2011.

Seriously folks, reading this acknowledges that you relieve MTB of any and all legal liability for his actions.
