Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over four years with no way of escaping. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.
Michael fell into the OnlySP team toward the end of 2017. You’ll mostly catch his work over in the news area, but that doesn’t mean he won’t dip into the features section every now and then. For him, gaming doesn’t get much better than Metal Gear Solid and Super Mario Sunshine. Though he is a die-hard Nintendo fan, he grew up on PlayStation.
Pharmaceutical magazine editorial and production assistant by day, OnlySP subeditor by night, Amy McKavanagh loves words, grammar, and punctuation regardless of the publication. She was born and raised in North Queensland, Australia, where she attended primary school, high school, and university.

Early 2017, she packed all of her belongings into a suitcase and moved with her partner, Damien Lawardorn, to the land of tea and crumpets… and apparently lots of rain, but that doesn’t actually happen in England. She hopes to one day publish works of her own, yet, for the meantime, editing the work of others will suffice.

Some of his favourite games include Conker’s Bad Fur Day, The Witcher 3, Catherine, and Bloodborne.
