UK anti-porn filters are cocking up League of Legends

The "for the children" UK internet restriction filters are going full bore this month. You remembered to opt out, right? If you didn't, not only are you going to be prevented from seeing my erotic Sonic fanfiction (which is u...

A game, not a sport: Real Sports talks eSports again

No, I don't think competitive gaming needs approval from something like Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. But that doesn't mean common ground shouldn't be reached. The show's recent look into League of Legends was actually dec...

Impressions: League of Legends: Yasuo

Samurais -- am I right? In the world of gaming, the "ronin/wandering samurai" trope is one of the most overused character designs I can think of, especially in the early 2000s, with the host of samurai-centric games on the or...

Which Console watches more Porn, BF4 Fixes & FFVIII Hair
by Max Scoville

Hey hey! This video was supposed to go up yesterday afternoon, but a series of unfortunate events resulted in it going up very late last night, and then internet witchcraft prevented me from putting up a post. So, if you don't mind a little reheated day-old news, here ya go. CUT ME SOME SLACK I'M DOING THIS ALL ON MY OWN.

We got an amazing exclusive scoop thanks to Pornhub, EA has told DICE to fix Battlefield 4 before making any new DLC, cops busted up a dude's World of Warcraft livestream after a phony tip, Riot Games' contracts with eSports iJocks apparently prevent them from streaming Fat Princess and Final Fantasy VIII is now on Steam.

Dead or Alive, Cubone and panty sniffing w/ Cristina Vee photo
Dead or Alive, Cubone and panty sniffing w/ Cristina Vee
by Jonathan Holmes

Last Sunday on Sup Holmes (now on iTunes) we were treated to company of Cristina Vee, voice actress for League of Legends, BlazBlue, Tekken: Blood Vengence, Skullgirls, Pokemon Origins and many other games and animated films. She is utterly charming, almost to the point of inducing speechlessness.

On one hand you have her compelling underdog story -- learning to overcome shyness through discovering anime and its surrounding fan community,  getting discovered online for singing anime theme songs, getting her first job in the industry as a teenager, and finally making it to the success she's found today. On the other hand, you have her personality -- a mix of wit, shyness, and slightly unhinged creativity. Over the course of the show she became Pokemon Cubone, sang about Rainicorns, and auditioned with me for the role of Marie Rose, the new Dead or Alive fighter. I made up lines for her to read on the spot about bunk beds and Burger King for her to read in-character. Her performance was flawless. Tecmo Koei would do well to sign her for the roll ASAP. 

We also talked about what it's like to be typecast, the growing attention that games are getting from Hollywood actors, what its like to to do voice acting for perverts and sex secenes, and so much more. Thanks again to Cristina for appearing on the show, and please tune in tomorrow at 1pm PST/4pm EST when we kick off Adult Swimbemer with Soundodger+'s Michael Molinari.
