Save Point was created by Lisa Foiles in Feb 2009 in order to provide herself with an outlet for expressing her amazingly awesome and never wrong opinions about video games and nerd culture. Hopefully the writing here at Save Point, involving sarcasm and the occasional real or made-up profanity, doesn't offend you. However, if it does offend you, Lisa might not completely care, and this lack of caring may be offensive to you.
Lisa is a recovering Nickelodeon child star and a convicted jaywalker. She has an unhealthy obsession with video games, Star Wars trivia, and Queen cover bands. Also, she is a columnist for Kotaku and has her own show on The Escapist called Top 5 with Lisa Foiles, as well as host for The Game Station's REMAG. It's pretty sweet, I guess.
Occasionally Lisa's stupid friends will post on here, but be aware that their posts will be far inferior to Lisa's posts.
About Lisa's Stupid Friends
Currently, Stuart is shrouded in mystery. Actually, Stuart's almost always shrouded in mystery. He's a mystery wrapped in an E. Nygma. I wonder how many will get that... Really, Stuart's mostly three parts Jack Skellington, two parts Guybrush Threepwood and a dash of Chandler Bing and Burt from Mary Poppins for flavor.
The question Stuart gets most often is "How did you meet Lisa?" Frankly, he "met" her through the very beginnings of the Lisa Foiles Club on Yahoo Groups, which instantly dates this entire story, after reading a story about the new All That cast and deciding she was cool. Nick may say his decision was wrong there, but he disagrees. It was cool to just talk with her, until one fateful private e-mail where I made a Monkey Island reference and the excited 90% caps lock e-mail he received in return and the rest is history. And present too. BTW: Remember that Monkey Island pitch article on Kotaku? Guess who helped on a lot of the research? This guy. He also helped found Save Point back in 2009 with Lisa and still very few people know who he is and that's as it should be.
Stuart's a long time gamer, growing up on LucasArts adventure games and Kings Quest on his family's IBM 386 to a most unprofessional fighting game button masher, and general nerd of all trades. He tries to know as much as he can on a wide range of topics, one of those who can pull a random fact out of his head that makes everyone around go "Why would you know that?" There's a specialization on theme parks and amusement parks, especially when it comes to Disney Parks, where it just gets to insane amounts of mostly useless knowledge and stories bouncing around in there. Yet he can't do math in his head.
Also, you can add him on Steam (and go ahead and join the Save Point Steam Group while you're at it) for gaming stuffs. You can also follow him on Twitter, if you'd like, though it might not be pretty. Speaking of, that's also his mostly defunct YouTube account too.
Nick has always lived on the wild side. Being pulled over by the cops for running a red light on his bicycle, at about the age of 13, he took the route of a rebel and never looked back. Thus throwing his dirty clothes on the ground with complete disregard for anyone.
Many years ago, his life took a downward spiral, the day he joined the official Lisa Foiles Club Yahoo Group. Over the course of time, he began to develop a close "friendship" with Lisa, which eventually lead to depression, extreme fits of sarcasm, and violent outbursts. This group was also where he met Stuart as well. In 2011 he was forced, by Lisa, to become an author for Save Point, and write lame and stupid articles like a caged monkey. Needless to say there was kicking, screaming, hair-pulling, face-punching, and name-calling. And that was just on Lisa's end.
When he's not unscrewing salt shaker lids and shooting lemon seeds at people through his straw, he's probably playing video games. Like Stuart, he also grew up playing Kings Quest, as well as Oregon Trail, and those weirdly colored math games that they only had on school computers. His first console was the Atari 2600, to which he still owns. Then, one fine Christmas day he finds an NES under the tree (you gotta love great grandmothers), and Nintendo become a way of life. With all of his video game accomplishments, to this day, he still has not been able to beat the original Super Mario Bros. because of that stupid jump in world 8-1. His favorite types of games are RPGs such as Fallout 3, Red Dead Redemption, and Borderlands. Other favorite games include the Broken Sword series, Chrono Cross, Half Life 2, Darksiders II, LEGO Batman 2, the Prince of Persia series, Metal Gear Solid series, Mass Effect series, Transformers: Fall of Cybertron and War for Cybertron, Dishonored, and so many more. He absolutely sucks at FPS's, especially in multiplayer, so don't even ask him to play. You're little sister could beat him.
