If bizarre and oddly specific skateboarding video game mods and wrestling game character downloads are your thing, Sasha is your gal! Of course, if that doesn't tickle your fancy, there's also some fiction writing on the side as well; and hopefully in the near future, some retrospectives on oddball video games (particularly of the 'kusoge' and 'deceased / shutdown / failed games' genre). And she occasionally plays fighting games too! She's practically a Jill of all trades!
