Justin Sharp
Founder / PNM Editor-in-Chief

Pure Nintendo founder and all around Nintendo geek. Nintendo systems have always been home to my most favorite gaming memories but I also enjoy video games on any platform. The first system I purchased was a Nintendo GameCube but I grew up playing the NES, SNES, and all of the various Game Boy models.

My love of video games started with the Nintendo GameCube. My favorite franchises are The Legend of Zelda and the Professor Layton series. I'm currently in the process of conquering every Zelda game in the series but my true, geeky loves are Star Trek and DC Comics. NNID: purely_katie

Even though I was first introduced to video games with the Atari 2600 (I feel old) it was Nintendo that turned me into a lifelong fan. From the magical NES era when Nintendo was the face of gaming, through today with the 3DS, Switch (and everything in between) Nintendo’s always entertained me with their innovative, and just plain fun games! Writing for Pure Nintendo has allowed me to combine a fondness for journalism with my love of gaming. I’ve especially enjoyed building working relationships with smaller and independent developers and studios.

Hello! My name is Kaelyn, and I LOVE Nintendo! I can't remember a time when I didn't play video games. Growing up with 3 older brothers it was hard to avoid them. Nintendo was always something that put me in a good mood, or taken me away when I needed a break from reality. My favorite series is the Legend of Zelda! I've always been into drawing Nintendo characters and seeing other people's video game themed art. I have a dream of one day meeting the great Shigeru Miyamoto, and one day working for Nintendo (Don't we all).

I love all things Nintendo! It's my Dad's fault really, since he bought my sister and I the NES many Christmases ago. It was the beginning of a love affair, but who could blame me? There was no better introduction to video games than Mario and Zelda! I'm a proud owner of a 3DS (Fire Emblem-branded, thank you), a Wii U (which, incidentally, also doubles as my TV remote), and the Switch (day one, naturally). I'm a writer and a web developer, so I love writing reviews and take design elements very seriously. My all-time favorite game is Super Mario World for the SNES, though I'm also partial to any of the Mario Kart entries.

Editor / Assistant Review Coordinator

Raised on Intellivision and Star Frontiers, I've been a gamer since I was old enough to say, "There's nothing on TV." There's still nothing on TV so I'm still playing games, and I likely will be until I'm able to retire to Wuhu Island.

Jes Taylor

Thanks to the Super Nintendo and SEGA Genesis, video games became my life and passion. Nintendo has always taken a first place in my heart of gaming and I'm always looking for an excuse to talk about Nintendo. Thankfully I've managed to find a way to combine my love of Nintendo with jobs that let me write all about it. I've also spent time as a Q&A Tester in gaming but, let's face it, writing about the games is way more fun.

Roger Reichardt

Gaming has always been a part of my life ever since my family got a Pong machine when I was five years old. But it wasn't until the NES that I realized the potential of gaming and the worlds they conjure. Despite the NES being the early home to my favorite series Castlevania, RPGs are my preferred genre. I enjoy creating media around my love of games, whether it's podcasts, videos, articles, or reviews. On any given day, you'll most likely find me nestled in a corner, playing my Switch.

My background in gaming started with PC games and the good old Sega Genesis. However, when it came to Nintendo, I was introduced to the GameCube and it became one of my favorite consoles. The DS Lite also holds a special place for me. I was introduced to Pure Nintendo by my good friend Trevor Gould. I look forward to putting my hobby of writing to use and playing new games.

Long time gamer since the Atari 2600 days! Also an avid anime figurine collector, and musician.

David Temple

I started covering games for iOS in 2013, and made the Switch to Nintendo (you see what I did there) in 2019. I enjoy tabletop, mobile, and console gaming—just about anything which can provide a little diversion, a brain teaser, or an adventure. A little play every day can be good for you. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

Cody Emerson

I've been playing Nintendo since I was 5 years old. Anything Mario, Pokemon, Donkey Kong or Zelda I'm all about. I won a contest for the original Pokemon Snap when I was 11 for the highest-scored picture in the game. I have a 1-year-old daughter named Sabrina who wasn't named after the Gym Leader in Saffron City but we might tell her that she was when she first discovers the Kanto region.

Ted Hazell

Pokémon Yellow was my first introduction to gaming. Couple this with my love for writing and contributing for PN with video game reviews just seems like a no-brainer! The Game Boy will forever by my favourite system ever. Nothing quite compares... although the Switch is making one hell of a case!
