Meet the Gamers
The moment he was born, Terry Randolph knew he would play video games. Okay….not the exact moment he was born, but definitely at an early age. His affinity for video games was probably cemented in the multiple tantrums he threw while being dragged away from Sonic the Hedgehod on Sega Saturn at his daycare when his parents came to pick him up. Since that day, Terry still continues to enjoy all of the experiences gaming provides. He also loves to write short stories and ambitious novel projects. Last Token Gaming was born from combining both his love of writing and video games.
Currently playing: Kingdom Heart 1.5 HD Mix (PS3), Halo: Master Chief Collection (Xbox One), Dragon Age: Inquisition (Xbox One), and Fantasy Life (3DS)

Since Jake Rushing was able to walk, he was able to play his way through Super Mario World. Well…not at the same time. His love for video games is not meant to die out as he tried kicking his habit of playing video games out of his life only to come back to them at some point like is was destiny. He loves video games so much, he studied Bachelors of Science in Computer Science: Computer Game Design at UC Santa Cruz. When Jake is not working on Android Apps for his company or anything related to Last Token Gaming, he likes to go out to meetup events to socialize with people, ride his bike, and checking out what San Jose has to offer. He loves a lot of video games, but given his background in independent game development and his liking to retro things, he enjoys Independent Games such as FTL, Rogue Legacy, and Castle Crashers as well as enjoying retro games like Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Donkey Kong Country 2, and Yoshi’s Island. He does his work in hopes that one day that he’ll be able to make games again. Will it ever happen? Only time can tell.
Currently playing: Professor Layton vs. Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Kart 8
