Suda51, Midnight City and game review reform with Tim Rogers

Get to know the people who make great videogames

[Sup Holmes is a weekly talk show for people that make great videogames. It airs live every Sunday at 4pm EST on Youtube, and can be found in Podcast form on Libsyn and iTunes.]

Last week on Sup Holmes we welcomed Tim Rogers of Action Button Entertainment back to the program. We talked about a lot of things, even by Tim Rogers standards. We heard all about Tim’s experiences fitting into Suda51’s pants while working on Shadows of the Damned, how his relationship with Kenta Cho (Tumiki Fighters, Blast Works) influenced the creation of the deconstructed sports title Videoball, hints about what the heck is happening with Midnight City, how to make game reviews less stupid, and a lot more. 

I was particularly touched by Tim’s emotional display of annoyance and love towards the end of the episode. This is Tim’s second time on the show, and it was clear that he took the Dtoid comments he received on his first episode very seriously. If you’re the kind of person that judges a man by the shape of his glasses, Tim has a word or two for you. The general idea is, reverse-reverse nerd persecution is no better than regular nerd persecution. Like a group of wise rappers once said, we’re all in the same gang. We’d all do well to remember that.

Thanks again to Tim for appearing on the show, and be sure to tune in today at 4pm EST when we welcome Justin from Vagabond Dog (Always Sometimes Monsters) to the program.
