Dolphin Wetness Podcast, Ronathon Proper Statistics and the All Star Podcast

4:00 PM on 10.07.2010 // Alex Barbatsis

Ronathon Proper took place October 3 2010 from 10AM till 10PM PST. It was one of the most fun days of my life. During the day we played Samba De Amigo, Super Ghouls and Ghosts, Power Stone 2, Killer Instinct, Sonic 2, Typing of the Dead, Demon’s Crest, Spawn, Sim City, Doom, Eyeshield 21, Professor Layton, Tech Romancer, Skitchin’, and the list goes on and on. Before we get to the stats, here is the Dolphin Wetness Podcast hosted by Chad Concelmo. There is some technical difficulties, but its full of heart.

Also for those who missed it before, the Ronathon All Star Podcast with Chad, Colette Bennett, Brad Nicholson, Stella Wong, and myself. It may be my favorite podcast I’ve ever done, so please check it out. You can also hear the birth of Fingerbangcast, term coined by a handsome Grecian man.

Both were put on the LAPD itunes feed here.

Thank you to everyone who watched, donated, and spread the word about Ronathon Proper. I want to especially thank all those DtoidLA members who could make it out to help and game. I’m sorry the chicken I made wasn’t very good.

Nihil: It was awesome meeting your and your beard. I’m glad you liked the Banksy book (thought you would) and made Ronathon your first Narp. I predict many more in the future.

Andrew Morales aka Kabuto Drew: Thanks for taking the mic whenever I had to do something and enabling us to play four player Samba De Amigo by leaving your maracas when you went to work.

Kyle Gamgee: I can’t believe you played Super Ghouls and Ghost for five hours straight. The SNES was a highlight and your intense win over the level three boss made everyone’s night!

Chad Concelmo: I’m glad the Dolphin Wetness Podcast was a fairly successful experiment. Also glad I could keep your disapproval of my video game skills streak alive. You can bask in the sun anytime you want!

Jonathan Ross: Totally saved my ass during the Dolphin Wetness Podcast by being a rock of stability and having very nice handwriting. And I’m glad you enjoyed the Mezcal.

LK404: You came in through clutch when I forced you to help me figure out how to stream video. Not only that, you provided us with the awesome Samba De Amigo and didn’t mind be branded the villain for changing out SG&G for Doom and playing as a PX in the TvC Tourney! To paraphrase you, it was “Up, Over, and Gone!!!”

Tyler Miller: Your TV was the star of the show. I wish you could have left it over a little longer; it looked so nice on my cabinet! We’ll have to grab some intelligentsia coffee soon!

Travis Roop: What am I gonna do with that big ass TV? Thanks for the delicious bacon and peanut butter cookies, for not letting me broadcast Jim Sterling’s video via mirror, and for the great play by play video game commentary.

Scott: Your color commentary for TvC was much better than mine, hopefully for future fight tourney’s we’ll have you at our commentator’s table with LK404.

Andy Mogren: The guy who came up with the video game movie adaptation game that no one liked. Looking forward to our movie podcast launching on Flixist.com Oct 11th (PLUG PLUG PLUG)

Kyle Buchanan: Glad I got to Mini-interview you briefly before I got caught up in technical issues. You were rocking at Demon’s Crest!

Marie Colette: You cooking assistance was much appreciated and your radical sonic line was hilarious!

Rochelle Martin: My roommate. Thanks for putting up with us, being forced into a Tatsunoko vs. Capcom tournament, and for letting me rearrange the entire apartment.

Ron: I am so thankful that you’ll be ok. I hope you had a great time at Ronathon. I wish that this event could have been inspired by better events. So glad to say I’ll see you around LA. We all love you Ron!

If you care to still donate, you can do so here. We’re only 60 dollars away from $1000! Please help if you can.


I guess from here on I’ll have to find another project. Short films are in the future, a movie podcast at Flixist, and possibly another streamed videogame day? Time will tell.

Thanks for everything Destructoid! I can’t wait for the future together! (sexy future)

Rick and Morty is like reverse Archer. Instead of everyone being insanely quick-witted, everyone stutters, pauses and repeats themselves a lot.

No spoilers or anything, but the MGS V troll is amazing. I went from concerned to laughter in a matter of minutes.

Not saying that the "augment your pre-order" announcement caused me to fall ill, but the timing seems like too much of a coincidence.

Could you stop calling Metal Gear Solid V Kojima's "swan song?" He's not retired, for crying out loud.

Seems rather excessive for a 3ds game. (3ds xl for scale) [img]http://i.imgur.com/DwOtP0s.jpg?1[/img]

Tried the stealth approach for awhile, time to switch things up. *plants C4 everywhere* I'll probably toss one on the poor schmuck that delivers my copy of MGS V. For taking so long.

So the 3DS Dragon Quest VII remake is coming to mobile in Japan, so there's a chance that version will get ported over here. Not ideal but if we get it at all I'll be happy!

Put down the deposit for my new car, will probably be able to pick it up on the weekend. Insurance is pretty good too, sub £1000 which is excellent. Kinda. My mum tried to reverse in 5th gear. She drives an automatic. What a noob. :P
