I’m Phil : but most people call me MasterAbbott. I’ve been a huge fan of gaming since the age of 3, when my dad bought me my first ever gaming console: The CBS Colecovision, the rival to the Atari 2600 at the time. The first game ever played on the CBS was similar to Pac Man called Mouse Trap, many hours were lost playing that great game I can tell you. With my growing hunger for gaming, I dont ever think I will ever tier of this amazing and enjoyable and hugely popular industry.
I believe I’ll always be a gamer till the day I die. I’m now in my mid 30’s (Yes Yes no old people jokes, I can still hold my own) and over the years of gaming I’ve come in contact with nearly every gaming console that was released in Australia, US and Japan .. I’ve collected and still have a fairly large assortment of old school games, consoles and arcade machines lying around the house. Oh and I’ve got at least two of the latest next gen consoles (yes I know I have major issues).
In 2009 I decided to express my passion to the world and create a Video Game / Entertainment site that covered everything that is video games/anime/technology and entertainment. Sharing the latest news, reviews and interviews from leading gaming developers on all platforms. Plus a whole lot of other weird and wonderful things.
Here at Capsule Computers, we cover everything that is gaming and entertainment from the Xbox 360 all the way back to the mighty CBS ColecoVision!.
If you find the stuff we do here enjoyable and entertaining subscribe to our official Twitter and also FACEBOOK pages. We also have a very popular YouTube channel as well as a very informative and enjoyable Podcast show.
All feedback is also greatly appreciated, email me at : email@example.com : I always reply to everyone. (even if it’s hate mail)
Thank you and welcome to Capsule Computers – Your #1 stop for Video Game & Entertainment News.

Hey people, name’s Travis and I’m the Managing Editor here at Capsule Computers. I’m quite an avid gamer who has been playing games on practically every console starting with the Super Nintendo, though I’ve since moved to more standard consoles and handhelds. Also within the last few years I’ve become engrossed with anime and manga, especially when it comes to anime with plenty of fan service or harem type shows.
I’m a regular on both our gaming and anime podcasts here on Capsule so check those out if you want to hear me complain about retro titles, pessimism over various industry news and rejoice over the amount of fan service and breasts in any given anime or game.Senior Editor

I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember. I still have fond memories of my cousin putting me in front of a computer and teaching me how to play Quake but not quite old enough to understand that the red water really was lava. After a not so short hiatus from the industry, I am back for more.

Well, The name is Dustin and I am 22 years old and have been gaming for about 17 years. As a kid, I always ended up with hand me downs for systems, so I worked my way up from Atari from the get go in gaming. When it comes to games, I play it all. I look for unique, obscure games that nobody gives a chance because to me, finding a gem of a game is worth sifting through the bad or poorly designed. I don’t do system wars, as I think every system has it’s own pros and cons. I do remember banking in hours and hours playing Pokemon Red & Silver on my game boy, and hopping online for Socom and Smackdown vs Raw with my PS2 when online was new and exciting.
Even now with Halo 3 and many other new titles. I never play online games to win though, just to kill time and meet some of the cool and insane people online. As the gaming industry evolves, excitement dies as fast as it grows, because of the next big thing is always right around the corner. Which is why I am with Capsule Computers, to be a part of the madness that is the industry and share some opinions of my own with all of you.
Now by chance if you wanted to know anything else, catch me on twitter.com/discordman, my twitter is by no means pure excitement, but I will be keeping up to date with what I am playing, doing, twitter stuff, ect, ect ect.
“Born in Eastern Europe somewhere, raised in the heart of darkness, now serving out his life sentence in the convict colony continent (‘Straya!). Obsessed with all things geek culture. I started gaming young with things like the original ‘Age of Empires’. Started even earlier with films thanks to the work of Charlie Chaplin (‘Modern Times’ and the ‘The Kid’ are my favourite). Movies and gaming are what kept me company throughout my younger years as my family moved from continent to continent (Cue sad violin).
I got heavily into geek culture when I entered uni and joined a society which dealt with such interests. I ended up overdosing on geek and in no time at all, I staged a coup within said society to become its beloved El Presidente. In that time I became acutely aware of my own interest and talent for pen and paper roleplaying games, with a preference for the 40k roleplaying series. I lost power when a pretender staged their own coup, but my love of geek culture has continued to the present day.
I write for/make movies/games/plays/trouble and aim to entertain/inform/provoke thought.
My favourite genre of games is strategy, with lots of love being given to the old XCOM series as well as its new reboot (CURSE YOU SECTOPODS!). I also like RPGs, cooperative online games, and, every once in a while (when the stars are right), a first-person shooter.
I don’t have a favourite genre of film, but my favourite film of all time is ‘Lord of War’ as I couldn’t help but be hooked by its amazing opening sequence (Seriously, go check it out) alongside the style of Andrew Niccol in that particular piece.
I don’t know what else to add here, so I’ll just apologise for my gratuitous use of asides and hope that you enjoy my work…”Editor

“Hi everyone, the name is Admir and I’ve been an avid gamer ever since I got my hands on Game Boy and kept spending a small fortune on AA batteries for it. I was saved from potential bankrupcy by switching later to PsOne and eventually PS2. Somewhere along that road I discovered the amazing appeal of Steam sales and hoarding games in my library that I’ll likely never find time to play so PC gaming seems to be my primary focus for now.
My gaming taste is somewhat eclectic. I can never find myself being stuck in a specific genre although I tend to gravitate more towards RPGs and open world games. Actually, pretty much any game where you can harass and pester harmless NPCs without serious repercussion is a plus in my book.
Aside from video games, other interests include cooking, knitting and polishing my extensive knife collection (ok that last bit is a blatant lie but hopefully it makes me a bit manlier compared to the hobbies I listed before)
Once I witnessed a DVD logo perfectly hitting the corner of a screen which to this day I consider to be one of my proudest accomplishments.”

Hey, my names Jack! I’ve been playing video games ever since my uncle gifted me a Playstation 1 in the wild west days of 2003. Since that day my love of games has led me to spend way too much on the latest consoles and PC tech, all in the name of fun.
Games of all mediums (tabletop, video, graphing calculator) have been a big part of my life. I’d have to say that my favourite to this day is still Destroy All Humans! for the PS2.
You can usually find me playing random games on steam and PSN, or just replaying a modded version of Skyrim for the bajillionth time.
Hit me up on twitter @theJDx3 for ramblings and updates.
