Angel started playing video games a long time ago. He started playing competitively since the Counter-Strike 1.3 era. Apart from that, the desire to own a website has always been there. Now, when the mission is slowly accomplishing, he's striving for success and nothing else. Besides that, he quit his full-time job to work on futuregamereleases.com. Being a father of two beautiful babies puts babysitting, gaming, and making poetry out of it a definite challenge. P.S. I play games the way they are meant to be played.
