Thom discovered Cubed3 a few years back when attempting to decide whether or not he should buy Epic Mickey 2. A long time gamer, first introduced to gaming by the (you'll never see this coming!) world of Super Mario Bros., he still fondly remembers his 11th birthday when he received Final Fantasy VII, and the obsessive nature by which he unwrapped Ocarina of Time one fateful Christmas.
A believer in the unique and strange, if you asked Thom the best game he's played in the last year, Katamari would come up more than a few times. Also a cinephile and musician, Compton lives in Columbus, Ohio and spends his nights as an IT specialist.
