(NVGR) Why I quit The Dismal Jesters

As some of you may know, I was doing a Podcast with former Dtoid writers Conrad Zimmerman and Jim Sterling called The Dismal Jesters. It was more-or-less a continuation of the version of Podtoid that Jim put together in 201...   0

Top Ten things I like Pokemon X/Y

10) New trainer 2D art. It's a little sterile, and doesn't fit with the rest of the game, but as stand alone art its pretty charming. 9) Some of those Mega Evolutions. They look pretty neat. 8) Pokemon Amie. It gets borin...   0

The stubborn, unlikable Xbox One

There are a lot of reasons not to like the Xbox One. Its pretty ugly, representing the boxy design favored in 1980s electronics more than a modern, sleek look like what weve seen popularized in recent years. The name? Yeah,...   0

Adorable people is why I keep trying to make things

A lot of people told me right off the bat that I shouldn't make teenage pokemon, that I was doing it wrong and that i was trying too hard or not trying hard enough or that just watching the show gave them a terminal illness. That made me wonder "Am I making the world a worse place by trying to make my idea?" This video proved to me that it was good that I tried to make my idea.   0

Talk Fast with Anthony Burch (choose your own interview)

We started a new interview series called "Talk Fast" at PAX East this year and it was fun to do. We did one with Anthony Burch of Borderlands 2 and Runner fame, but the sound didn't sound. You can play God by adding your own subtitles and/or talking to is. So do that. Do that now.   0

My Top games of 2012

Hamza told me to make a list of my favorite games of 2012 if I had any down time. I don't have any down time. I really should be recording more Teenage Pokemon audio, but that's really stressful (but really fun once you get p...   0

My 100 (or so) favorite Wii exclusives (a work in progress)

Here is a list I've been working on for a few months (off and on). I was hoping to complete it after playing Kiki Trick and Dragon Quest X (as I feel like they'd end up ranking on here somewhere), but I don't know if and wh...   0

Putting the "No" in November

I'm definitely in the minority when it comes to my complete and utter lack of excitement over what most consider to be a huge month for videogame releases. I'm unswayed by the prospect of jumping into the moonboots of Maste...   0

A Taste of Discipline from XCOM and Dishonored
