Sam Kash

Sam Kash was born with an NES controller in hand. Before he could read, he was firing up Final Fantasy OG and roaming for baddies to hunt. Some things never change, like that drive to hunt down baddies. Only now, he focuses his hunts on unsuspecting players in whatever game he can. He's heading up Massively Overpowered's new PvP focused column. So drop in and tell him your thoughts.
