About Richie Shoemaker

Richie has been playing video games for almost as long as they’ve existed. He started writing about them back in the days of Quake, Super Mario 64 and Command & Conquer, and has barely stopped since.

Gaming Setup

Richie has no idea how his PC works or what’s inside the black box that contains its mysterious innards. He can however confirm that it does have:
  • An electronic brain
  • A board the brain is attached to
  • Some memory
  • A thing that makes pretty pictures appear on a screen – a picture brain?
  • Electricity that enters through a pipe
  • A box with a big button on the top that makes the magic happen
