Hello, I'm Nichole and I'm a 26 year old transgender woman. I've been gaming since I was 8 years old and currently have every major platform. You can find me on Xbox One, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. I love co-op, souls style, roguelikes, action, western and eastern rpg games. I play a large variety of games though and I'm playing something different every week, it'd be easier to list the genres I don't like. Despite my experience and work I consider myself more of a casual gamer because I feel the definition of hardcore gamer has changed over the past couple of years. You can find my writing here on New Normative as well as my blog. If you want to watch me play stuff live you can find me on Twitch as QueenHellcat.
