As a child Jason was behind the curve when it came to video game skills. He couldn't make a line in Tetris or finish the first level of Super Mario Bros., but one day while searching through his tub of Nintendo cartridges he came across and unmarked one. The game seemed to pull him to it, beckoning him to place it into his system. As he placed the cartridge into his system a violent and powerful surge of electricity shook his whole body, transforming him into a beast slaying, pit jumping, combo slinging gamer searching for any and all opponents in the video game arena. One day he came across a man that he would soon learn he couldn't defeat so easily...Chops!

Jazze - COO/ Co-Host on the GameZilla podcast
It was like any other day on the rift. "Thresh you're a garbage support." My AD Carry dies for the third time because they won't click the damn lantern. Fuck it! i'll click it. The second my finger releases the mouse button my screen goes blank. A sudden flash of light and I am teleported into the middle of the most epic video game battle ever! There is an intense glow of everything being super-powered... Creatures evolving into unfathomable things... Everyone's levels are maxed out... Health bars are low... Time is running out! I reach down at my feet and pick up my controller... It is in this moment that I realize my true destiny. SUPPORT JAY IN DEFEATING CHOPS!

Chris - Director of Video Content / Video Producer for GameZilla Podcast
From the moment my Mom bought me my first NES, I wanted to make video games my career. With the 8bit crew I'm finally able to do that and I'm enjoying every minute of it. I also wanted to join the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles but my Mom banned me from going into sewers after my first attempt.

Chops - Content Adviser (Branding) / Co-Host on The Legend of Retro Podcast
At a young age, Chops was exposed to a unknown game system that emitted a green light. Once he pushed the power button he was blasted with the green energy from the game system, empowering him with fantastic video game skills! As he grew he knew that he outmatched any and all that played video games with him and was saddened by the thought that he would never find a gamer that could match his level...until he met Jay!

Xander - Producer & Co-Host on The Legend of Retro podcast
Since birth Xander has been bigger than those who came before him, but that wasn't enough. He was determined to be better too! He worked tirelessly to get better and better at every game who could get his hands on until people literally had to team up to defeat him. At that point, he became a little more relaxed. However, he still possesses an innate skill to be better than JazzE at everything except sucking and crying. It's even rumored that the classic song "Everything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" was written in honor of nearly every JazzE challenge Xander completed. He also likes pizza.

LPJ (Last Place Jason) - Vlogger
Though very annoying, he is one of the most crucial characters on Motor City Gaming. Without his presence, the entire universe would have been destroyed. His influence over the people of Earth gave Chops the amount of energy he needed to complete the Cell Games and kill Majin Buu.
