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.

Favorite games: Okami, Shadow of the Colossus, Xenoblade Chronicles, The World Ends With You, Bastion, Pokemon Emerald
