Kyle Vaughn is a Las Vegas native who has been gaming since before gaming was cool. Both of his parents claim that at two years old, he was able to beat the first level of Super Mario Bros. faster than any of his older siblings. Unfortunately, his skills and reflexes have only slowed down since then (don't peak too early, kids), but he still tries to get as much gaming in as he can when time allows. When he isn't gaming or streaming, Kyle is spending time with his wife and three young sons (who already love games), pickling and fermenting strange foods, or trying to run a small startup charity fund. He can occasionally be found on the Max Level Podcast and is also a Reviewer from time to time. Check the sidebar for more info on Streamworks Alliance and try to catch his nonprofit gaming stream at twitch.tv/bruce_dedeuce.

World of Warcraft Classic Review

Mable and the Wood Review

Mable and the Wood, a new side-scrolling action adventure metroidvania from developer Triplevision Games, seemed to have checked all of the boxes for a retro-game-loving freak such as myself. Adoringly pixelated backgrounds and sets, puzzle platforming, and interesting abilities and…

Dr. Mario World Review

Starting in 2016, Nintendo began experimenting with its most popular properties (that is, those not named Pokemon) and how their playstyles translate to a casual mobile gaming market. Super Mario Run was an interesting take on the runner genre starring…

Super Mario Maker 2 Review
