Pernell Vaughan
A fan of all things video game for as long as he can remember, Pernell likes few things as much as quality imaginative video games, quality VGM compositions, and friendly people with which to share those video game experiences with. He has a rather hefty library of retro and modern titles from which to draw his knowledge. In addition to Hey Poor Player, Pernell can also be found as the co-host of the Rhythm and Pixels video game music podcast, co-host of the Youtube show, “Pernell and Matt Play Games", and as a regular reviewer on the SML Podcast.

Shadows: Awakening Review (PS4)

Fancy a Bit of Shadow Play, Stranger?     Ever since my time at E3, I have been looking forward to the release of Shadows: Awakening by Kalypso Entertainment. Now it’s finally out, I’m able to see if it lives up to my expectations as a more story-driven take…

Shadows Awakening Preview

What Lurks Beneath the Shadows…     With the recent announcement of Diablo 3 receiving a port to the Nintendo Switch, I found myself wishing that Blizzard would make a new Diablo game instead of re-rereleasing this one for the umpteenth time. That’s when I managed to recall a…
