Rev Rant: the most important game of 2008


Jul 09
// Anthony Burch
My entire schedule of free time has been borked up since I started a summer class this week, so I didn't have time to physically stand in front of a camera and record this week's Rev Rant. Instead, I recorded an audio version...

Rev Rant: indie mercy


Jun 18
// Anthony Burch
Everyone seemed to dig last week's rant, which means you're all in for a good round of comparative disappointment today. My rant this week concerns indie games, but it's probably not what you'd expect -- it is not the usual ten to fifteen minutes of Jason Rohrer ball-licking that I so frequently indulge in on Podtoid. In fact, it's kind of the opposite. Hit the jump to watch it.

Rev Rant: Snakes, Plants, and Difficulty


May 21
// Anthony Burch
I'm making progress with these, I think, because every week I make new mistakes. First the chroma keying was bad, then the camera was too close, and this week I've put my torso on the wrong side of the frame so my left side ...

Rev Rant: Fallout 3's ending


May 02
// Anthony Burch
height="3… When RetroForceGO! was in its infancy, I had a segment between act breaks called the "Rev Rant" where I'd basically just whine about something and try to make said whining sound halfway intel...
