Josh Devlin

PROFILE:

Josh blew down the Walls of Jericho. He was a saint from the old testament that fought as a brave warrior for God. A man's man. Built like a brick house; he had the strength of ten men, could run faster than a deer, and hit harder than a battering ram. Excuse me, one second... Um, it seems there has been some sort of a mix up. The man I was just describing is, in fact, not our Josh. Our Josh is a nerd who plays video games. He has never hit anything. His first foray into gaming was with Sesame Street ABC on the NES, but he fell out of gaming for many years because it was not allowed in his house. In 2005, he bought an Xbox 360 just to play Halo 2, and it was all downhill from there. Josh has been writing for Gaming Trend since September 2013 as a news reporter and occasionally a features writer. He lives in South Florida, working as a pool guy, and hopes to turn writing about video games into a career. Josh's biggest hobbies and passions include; watching ungodly amounts of anime, buying too many video games that he doesn't have enough time to play, and playing basketball with little to no skill at all. He also loves marshmallow Peeps and singing 50's Motown hits in the shower.
