About Wes Hampton

Wes has been a console gamer for as long as he can remember. Starting with the NES he's made his way through every console generation since including a brief stint with a friend's 3DO (it was a strange but magical time). Nowadays he spends his limited gaming time with his PS3, but embraces all facets of gaming old and new. Most importantly he just wants to play some great games, whatever the hardware.
