News Editor

Alyse Stanley is a news editor at Tom’s Guide overseeing weekend coverage and writing about the latest in tech, gaming, and entertainment.

Prior to joining Tom’s Guide, Alyse worked as an editor for the Washington Post’s sunsetted video game section, Launcher, where she wrote about indie games you shouldn’t miss, how to tackle an intimidatingly long gaming backlog, and all things Nintendo. She also previously led Gizmodo’s weekend news desk, where she covered breaking tech news — everything from the latest spec rumors and gadget launches to social media policy and cybersecurity threats. She has also written game reviews and features as a freelance reporter for outlets like Polygon, Unwinnable, and Rock, Paper, Shotgun.

A recent Chicago-area transplant born and raised in Virginia, Alyse is a big fan of horror movies, cartoons, and miniature painting. After moving to the midwest, she fell hard into Warhammer 40k and gets a kick out of building ridiculously pink, e-girl-themed armies. She also spends a lot of time playing video games (in case that wasn’t already clear), sinking an embarrassing amount of hours into roguelikes, tactics games, and farming sims. When she does occasionally touch grass, she enjoys exploring nature trails with her dog Pixel and thrifting.
