Eric is also known under his two names, NightOfTheLiving8Bit and ER1C OF WAR and you can find him creeping the dark and dank places of local flea markets in search for lost treasure or kicking back at home enjoying his favorite new or old school games, while always looking into new ways to help innovate the gaming community as a whole.
