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)

Off to the new job shortly. Dunno if it's something I want long term, but I can't complain about the money. New laptop, phone, and consoles could be weeks away :D

Is it too late to write about the waifu wars? I don't really have one but there is a female character I have in mind that I want to talk about.

Bayo has high execution barrier and largely unsafe moveset but Witch Time is a huge saving grace. I bet people are double bitter with Corrin being in the game and being pretty reliable in terms of skillset. Definitely a safer and stronger choice than Bayo

I was playing Third Strike on PS3 with my PS4 controller and I tried using the dpad for the first and noticed that it doesnt take corner directional inputs. Is this normal for ps4 controllers on ps3?

God damn, Bernie Sanders is just killing it with this speech. Hitting basically every point. He even used the word "oligarchy." Probably the first time I've ever heard that word uttered on CNN. I think a lot of people in power are shitting their pants

In my haste to finally factory reset my tablet, I erased a blog I had worked on. Thankfully, it's fresh in my mind. It's another MGS blog, but it goes the opposite way of my last MGS blog. Pray this guy is not your husbando, for he is shit.

Just ate a disgusting amount of sugary wonders in a Fat Tuesday blowout. Chocolate (birthday) cake, Oreos, brownies, cookie dough, and some creme brule thing. Satiation by way of eat-'til-you-puke is what Shenanigans says!
