SegmentNext is a Video Game News and Review website where tons of new content is posted every single day. The site is filled with up to date gaming news, game guides, previews for upcoming titles and reviews to aid gamers’ buying decisions and it is the writing staff that makes it all happen.
The team of writers here at SegmentNext work tirelessly to bring this breath of gaming content to its readers by hunting down news stories, featuring previews for anticipated games, reviewing brand new games and providing unique perspectives on events related to the gaming industry.
Since most readers don’t get to interact directly with the writing staff, we have shared brief descriptions for each so that the readers can get to know the talent behind the articles they read and enjoy.
So here is a glimpse into our staff.
Zawad is the founder and lead editor of SegmentNext. Apart from running SegmentNext, Zawad is a passionate gamer who loves the PC platform. He regards the Elder Scrolls series among his favorite, and prefers more traditional multiplayer games over MMOs.
Managing Editor (PK)
Being the managing editor, Ali manages a lot of the editorial duties as well as publishing stories for SegmentNext. A long-time gamer, his favorite game series is the Gears of War but when he's not gaming he likes to kick back with a few popular animes like Naruto.
Senior Editor (PK)
Being a senior editor at SegmentNext, Haider is an integral part of the team and you'll see his posts frequently throughout the site. Apart from writing for us, Haider is also a competitive FPS player and enjoys a bit of Diablo on the side.
News Editor/Podcast/Video Producer (UK)
You might know Liam as the host of the XPGrind podcast and video series. Liam is a freelance writer who posts news for SegmentNext as well as records, edits and publishes podcasts and video for us. When he's not doing that he's running around to press events around the UK, always looking for the latest scoop. During the rare time he gets to himself, Liam enjoys playing a variety of JRPGs and RTS games on his PC and consoles.
Omar has been a hardcore gamer since the 80s, so you know he's going to act all superior and snobbish when you meet him. He's a fan of Stealth, Action and Fighting games, which hints at his innate bipolarity. His most valued qualities in games are artistic design and storytelling and is always ready to tackle issues surrounding the medium he loves in his editorials and featured articles.
News Writer (PK)
Saqib is one of our most prolific writers, his posts helping to make up the brunt of our daily news content. He's a PC gamer at heart and his favourite game is Diablo II.
News Writer (US)
Johnny's game system of choice is the Xbox 360. His favourite game is Arkham City, because who wouldn't want to be Batman? When he was 11, he wrote his first email ever using the Sega Saturn and addressed it to Ultra Game Player's Bill Donohue. Bill responded, calling him a twenty-something virgin who still lives with his mother. Now he's 26, not a virgin, and definitely not living with his mother. The day he's called a fat idiot by an 11 year-old is the day he'll know he's come full circle.
Associate Editor (PK)
Yet another one of our many staff and a long-time contributor (We need all the staff, how do you think we keep it so busy around here?), Salman is one of our many news writers. He's a fan of the Thief series of games and PC is his favourite platform for gaming.
Will is our resident review-master and it's he who writes most of the reviews you'll have read on our site. With his ancient knowledge of the secret review-fu arts, he makes sure that all the reviews you see on SegmentNext are thoroughly checked out.
Arsalan is a competitive Tekken and Call of Duty player and crushes pretty much everyone at the office in these games. He loves reading and writing about games and is deathly allergic to half-boiled potatoes.
Sarmad is one of the more refined and cultured among us. His favorite game is Mario, and he once had dreams of going to plumbing school. Now he's 24, a finance major and having the time of his life writing about videogames.
Associate Editor/FAQs (PK)
We've got a lot of guides and FAQs here and you can thank Afnan for providing many of them. It's he who does the research and assembles our FAQs before we can publish them.
