Meet the Team: Kyle Orland

In the world of professional game blogging, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important groups: the bloggers who investigate the stories and readers who make silly comments. These are the first group's stories.
  • Name: Kyle Orland
  • Job Position: Contributing Editor; nega-reviewer
  • Past Experience/Education: Bachelors degrees in computer science and journalism from the University of Maryland, College Park (Go Terps!). I've written (and write) about games for a variety of other outlets, as detailed on my personal site
  • Life Outside of the 'Stiq: Fan of good TV (and some bad TV). Budding political junkie. Married. Juggler.
  • Why I'm blogging: As a fun excuse to keep up with gaming news; as an outlet for regular, creative writing; to make a little dough.
  • First Game Experience: A kid on my block got an NES and Super Mario Bros. when I was six. I went to his house practically every day even though I wasn't a big fan of the guy. On my seventh birthday I got an NES of my own and the rest is history.
  • Favorite Games: Super Mario 64, Metal Gear Solid, Super Mario Kart, Dance Dance Revolution, Subspace/Continuum, Yoshi's Island
  • Who's your favorite Planeteer? Wheeler.
There's more to come every Tuesday and Thursday.
