Jenni is one of those special, stubborn sorts of people who steadfastly plays any sort of import game, without letting a little thing like 100% fluency get in her way. She’s also been writing about video games since 2007, with her work appearing on Cheat Code Central, Siliconera, GeekParty, PC Gamer and Technology Tell, the latter of which was the home of her long-running Important Importables column.
