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 : firstname.lastname@example.org : 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.
And remember kids… PLAY HARD OR DON’T PLAY AT ALL!
MANAGING & SENIOR EDITORSManaging Editor Travis Bruno Check out all articles written by Travis Gamertag : Wolvespack88
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 Jamie Laike Tsui – Check out all articles written by Jamie Gamertag : LaikeSF Steam Tag : Laike
Geek. Gamer. University of Toronto Student. Foodie. Sushi and Bubble Tea Addict. Fountain Pen and Notebook Lover.
Some people call me Jamie, some people know me better as Laike. 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. I thought I could escape writing about video games and technology, but I just couldn’t do it. So here I am, back for more.
EDITORSEditor Dustin Spencer – Check out all articles written by Dustin Gamertag : Discordman
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.
I’m Nathan. I’ve been a fan of gaming ever since I got a SNES and Donkey Kong Country for my 6th birthday. From then I really stuck with the console experience and have owned pretty much every Nintendo and Playstation console. My favourite games include the Crash Bandicoot series, the Donkey Kong Country Series, Mario Tennis on N64, Pokemon, anything Dragonball Z and probably one of my favourite games of all time Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Did I mention I love Dragonball Z, I’ve probably watched the whole series at least 5 times. I studied video game design at Monash University and have been attempting to make my own apps in my spare time.
My dream is to be the lead creator on my very own large scale adventure game on the leading consoles at the time. When I’m not staring at screens, I enjoy playing tennis, table tennis and hanging out with friends down at the bar or club. I love travelling and have been to America and Japan so far. Loved every second of it.
Hopefully you guys enjoy what I have to offer here 🙂
Editor Kyle Roberts – Check out all articles written by Kyle PSN Tag : AwesomeK7 Steam Tag : theawesomekyle
Hey everyone, my name is Kyle and I’m currently a university student studying to become a high school teacher. Teaching may not have much to do with video games and anime, but I’ve been a gamer ever since the original release of Pokemon Ruby, and I’ve been watching anime since the heavily edited adaptation of Pokemon first aired (and OF COURSE Sailor Moon). Five years ago I began watching more anime, and now I’m a huge fan of anime. I’m against the sexism in the video game industry and the anime world and I’d like to use this opportunity to be a writer for Capsule Computers to draw attention to the inequalities portrayed in video games and anime and try and make a difference. As much difference as one otaku can make, anyway.
Oh, and any rumours floating around that I’m a member of Team Magma are false. COMPLETELY FALSE.

“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…”

I was discovered in Wellington in 1991, how I came to this planet I actually can’t remember. My Console experience is pretty low. well two to be exact, but I have a laptop loaded with stem and every chance I get for a new game I take.
Well my gaming is low but I am a true enthusiast for Japanese animation. Yes I watch anime and damn proud of it, my fave anime is Elfen Lied (if you haven’t watched it DO IT NOW!!!). I will watch anything and as long as the story is good and all elements fit in with the anime I will enjoy it. The old stuff is great but I love waiting for what is next in the C.A. season.

Born and raised on the isolated rocky prison continent floating on a sea of magma colloquially known as ‘Australia’, I’ve been a gamer and geek since I could hold a mouse. Primarily a PC gamer, I was originally motivated by a love of puzzles that has mutated into a hearty appreciation for all kinds of games of tabletop and screen. Strategy games, RPGs, and rogue-likes; where electronic worlds failed to fulfill me I turned to live-action games. Some might say I spread myself too thin, but as the resident rules lawyer, I’m sure it’s written somewhere that they’re probably wrong.
I heartily dived headlong into geek culture while studying at university, a passion I keep fed with movies, TV, war-games and whatever else strikes my fancy. My favorite movie is Aliens, and as for my favorite game, just by counting hours it would be Sid Meier’s: Civilization V. But I can quit any time. Just after one more turn…
