Groovygamer.net is a member of the enthusiast video game press and aims to deliver video game news, reviews and comical opinions about games and the video game industry as a whole. Our podcast is meant to inform and entertain other gamers, with honest non corporate opinions and general nonsense.

Ron DiBona (also known to many gamers as evildeadron) is the Editor in Chief and Podcast host, and is a lifelong passionate gamer going all the way back to the Odyssey 2. He has written freelance game reviews, and is the former host and creator of the Gamerdork US podcast.

He has eclectic tastes when it comes to gaming, and takes pride in the fact that he actually liked the game Deadliest Catch: Alaskan Storm. In addition to games, he enjoys watching sports and horror movies.

Michelle Ealey is the newest writer for Groovy Gamer. Michelle fell in love with video games the first time she stepped inside an arcade. She would return many times even though she was the only girl there; she and the boys had an unspoken agreement—they got the fighting games in the back, and she got the front corner and spent hours playing Donkey Kong, Centipede, Pole Position, Q*bert, Frogger (that poor frog never got home), and Ms. Pac-Man, her favorite. She finally got a Nintendo and played many games, especially The Legend of Zelda.

She strongly believes video games should be fun (if they’re not, then what’s the point?), strive to be better, and appeal to a broader audience. In her spare time, she enjoys sci-fi/fantasy books, TV, and movies. If you ever meet her, ask her how she ended up making Ione Skye a sandwich.

Jared Ley Redding was born in Anchorage, Alaska and now lives in Pampa, Texas. He fell in love with games playing Super Mario World on the SNES and continues to enjoy platformers, shooters, driving games, and the occasional RPG. He may have also built a zombie killing spear with a pool cue and a cheap knife, but if the cops ask he totally didn’t.

Jared is also a good cook, great listener, and a really nice guy. In his spare time he enjoys watching films, reading, listening and playing music, and is a dog person. You can follow him on Twitter @fiveoutafive or if you wanna play some games add Jericles to your Xbox Live or PSN friends list.
