  • Bio: My name is Zach Martinez, more commonly known as "The Crowbar". I have been writing recreationally for most of my life. I am currently 20 years old but I have already established a brand for myself. The Crowbar was something I created about a year ago. A steel crowbar is one of the best tools a human can have. It is durable, strong and has varying uses. You can use it to open crates, doors and chests. To me, a crowbar represents strength, courage and bravery. The idea to have myself become "The Crowbar" was inspired by the one free man, Gordon Freeman. The protagonist of the game Half Life represents rebellion he is the bravest of them all. Gordon Freeman doesn't need assault rifles or rocket launchers. He isn't a genetically enhanced superhuman all he needs is a crowbar. I love the crowbar and to me it has a higher meaning. I have been told stories by people in war or where their life has been in danger where a crowbar was the difference between life and death. To me, that is something that should be honored. I honor the ingenuity and creativity a crowbar represents, I honor it by getting a tattoo of a crowbar on my right arm. My childhood was no picnic. I was hit with many curve-balls that no child should deal with. I took a stand and did above and beyond of what was expected. I took care of my ailing mother when I was as young as seven years old. During the course of my elementary school years I wrote quite a bit. I wrote mostly fiction because it allowed my imagination to wander. I went through that teenage stage where I changed the way I looked to appear as though I was a "rebel". Although I wasn't. I came to a realization one day and my outlook on life completely changed. I was able to see everyone as equals and I become more interested in facts and reality. Upon this realization I become interested in supporting my opinions with facts. I enjoyed debating and arguing with people I didn't agree with. I learned how to write more objectively as well as factually. I became interested in reviews. I liked telling people about games. I love ranting about why some games or consoles are better than others. I like telling people information about something I know. Video games were always my way to relieve stress. They were convenient considering my situation with my mom. I could pause the game, then come back to play. They were always a part of my life. As I grew older I gained more of an opinion on games, I had a more mature outlook on them. As I was browsing Monster.com I noticed an ad for Examiner.com. I submitted a review I was writing for another website called Gamer Road. I was accepted and soon I was writing about video games, this time for a pay. Every gamer dreams to go to the Electronic Entertainment Expo. I am proud to say I attended E3 2010. It was definitely a dream come true. Playing the games, and interacting people within the video game community was something I thought never could have happened. I can safely say E3 inspired me to write about video games. Speaking of dreams come true, I was the honor to interview one of my favorite voice actors, James Arnold Taylor. In the video game community he is known as the voice of Ratchet of the Ratchet and Clank franchise as well as the voice of Tidus in Final Fantasy X. I was starstruck and all I heard was his voice. I am a hardcore gamer, therefore I have standards when it comes to video game entertainment. I have no interest in rehash games like Halo, Call of Duty and Gears of War. Mainly because they are not stimulating enough. I like a challenge something that makes me nerd rage almost instantly. I miss the age when video games were original and different. Not just the same old crap that is just squeezed out of a machine like an ice cream cone from Dairy Queen. I am honest so do not be shocked when I rip apart a new game.
