Ty is here to talk Nintendo and chew bubblegum, but he's all out of gum. He is an English major from the Bay Area, and he is always looking for the next big topic. Lately, he has been playing Pokken Tournament, Fire Emblem Fates, and Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival. Add him on Miiverse at Creepshow101 so he can school you at Splatoon and Mario Kart 8. Also, send him an email if you need some writing done, he can always find time!
