(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...

There's nothing I can say.

You had one of the first social/interactive/chill streaming channels that jumped from Justin.tv to Twitch.tv at its formation, and was a cornerstone to Twitch's early development aside from esports content. You had one of ...

Why I love videogame magazines

As some of you may know, Dtoid Reviews editor Chris Carter, former Dtoid powerhouse Tony Ponce, and myself have been working with a conclave of nerds and videogame experts on making a print magazine called Nintendo Force. We ...

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...

Pikmin 3 audio review, Teen PKMN merch, essay and free underwear

Hello! First, here is a audio review of Pikmin 3. It was going to be used for a video review of the game, but in the end, it wasn't. Some people like it.  Is this a thing you'd like to hear more of? Also, feel free to make ...

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.

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.

NF Magazine (formerly Nintendo Force) now up for subscription

Tony Ponce, a bunch of other great people, and myself are all working on a sequel magazine to Nintendo Power. The first issue cost like $18 or something wild like that. All the profits went to charity, but still...yikes. Th...

Byte-Sized Boo-galoo: more indie horror for even less money

Some of you may recall my foray from last month into the realm of free, horror-themed downloadable games. If not, you can read it here. I've been working my way through some more, and here's what I think of the latest batch I...

What the heck is a Streamtoid, anyway?

You've seen the daily posts for Mash Tactics. You've seen the weekend schedule each week for the heaps of shows we have on Dtoid.tv over the weekend. You've caught Jonathan Holmes' 'Sup Holmes Interviews, or explored the Dafo...

A Humble Bundundrum: are indie bundles losing their way?

Back when it debuted in May of 2010, the first Humble Bundle presented something new and interesting, especially to those gamers out there on a budget. Serving up a fistful of indie games that were already receiving varying...

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...

I still maintain I was named for a Styx's "Christopher, Mr. Christopher."

Decided to hop in on this name game thing, and punching my moniker into Urban Dictionary yielded some, um, interesting results. By "interesting," I mean something along the lines of "probably written by foreveralone cryhard...

A beginner's guide to Z-grade Dtoid fame

A section of the latest Communitoid that touched upon people asking how to gain a higher profile in the community resonated pretty solidly with me. A lot of good points were raised, and, having been floating around here for a...

Taking "idiot nerd girl" back.

As one who's not that fond of image memes, being old enough to remember that photos used to be funny without stupid captions added to them, and given my attitudes toward the treatment of women on the nerdier side, you can ima...

Byte-Sized Boos: indie horror quick hits

I've discussed Slender and Slender Man's Shadow in the past, but in their wake has come a veritable onslaught of independent, free games flying a banner of "horror" and trying to get a piece of the YouTube scaredy-cat pie. In...

Hold the sausage: will videogames ever be more than playing with the boys?

(EDIT 11/29/2012 - edited the title and a couple of other uses of the term "misogyny" out of things; a friend pointed out I was using the term far too lightly, and it didn't fit the message I intended. Just a terminology ho...

Red and Blue, resolving into purple.

This almost qualifies as NVGR, but given Red Vs Blue's basis on Halo, I figure it counts. Kinda personal, tl;dr ahead, so if you're not into that, you can find the Back button easily enough. Of all the things that have ever ...

Something to be thankful for: the end of Ctrl-Alt-Del

After just over ten years of publishing, gamer-centric webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del would appear to be calling it quits. Having somehow survived the post-Penny-Arcade boom that spawned a slew of similar, "gamer buddy" strips in th...

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...

Halo 4: Trying to reinvent the ring.

(Yeah, another Halo 4 blog. At least this one isn't nearly as spoilery as my prior one, so enjoy without worry.) It goes without saying that I'm kind of a Halo fanboy. With several blogs on the series over the years, one in ...

La Blue Girl and the Demon

First things first, title aside, this is safe for work, and has nothing to do with any sort of anime. And, while I usually open with a relevant introduction and then slip in the spoiler warning, the subject material discuss...

The Scoville Dewritos Challenge claims another victim.

Can't untaste. All-nighter delirium kind of made the flavor even more indescribably awful, on top of making me rambly and not entirely there. If you're wondering about the logo and the background Halo-age, I did this as a (po...

Teenage Pokemon Pre-alpha build

Hey everybody. I'm working on a show about teenagers and Pokemon called Teenage Pokemon. All the art is by Linzb0t. She is great. Here's a rough look at some of the art and a smaaaaaaaall, out of context audio clip of so...

Burnt flowers fallen: the tragic bitchotry of Lilly Caul

Telltale Games has been killing it, more and more so, with their point-and-click adventures over the years. Their takes on the Sam & Max and Monkey Island franchises have managed to stay true to the source material laid down ...

Thank you, for bringing me here, for showing me Home.

Benjamin Rivers' Home is a game that didn't see the most timely release. Rolling out, originally, at the beginning of June, Home's 2-D, low-res, sprite-based horror risked some overshadowing by the long-awaited Lone Survivo...
