Jay Petrequin

Jay Petrequin started writing at HeyPoorPlayer in the summer of 2012, but first got his start writing for It's Super Effective, a Pokemon podcast that happened to be a reflection of two of his biggest interests: pocket monsters, and making people listen to him say things. Jay is still making people listen to him say things to this day, as an editorial and review writer, regular co-host on the Hey Poor Podcast, and occasional Fun Video Dude. He's also Hey Poor Player's managing editor, meaning he has a captive audience whenever he wants it. He promises to use this power only for good. Favorite games: Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, Xenoblade Chronicles, The World Ends With You, Bastion, Pokemon Emerald
