Sup, Holmes? Talking about videogames with Nicalis


[Destructoid’s Director of Communications Hamza Aziz asked Jonathan Holmes to make a show called ‘Sup, Holmes?’ so that Destructoid could later sell a t-shirt that says ‘Sup, Holmes?’ on it. This is that show. Missed the live recording? The full episode is above. Download the audio-only podcast version of this episode or subscribe to the podcast feed. Find more episodes here.]

Here is is! The debut episode of Sup Holmes?, a combination video live stream, talk show, and audio podcast created for Destructoid, by Destructoid. I asked you to submit audio, video, and text questions to [email protected], and you did. I can’t wait for the rest of you to see them! 

Our guest this week is Tyrone Rodriguez, CEO of Nicalis (Cave Story 3D, VVVVVV, Night Sky) and former writer for Tips & Tricks magazine. Join us in the chat as we talk about to good, the bad, and the ugly of modern videogame journalism, something we’ve experienced from both the inside and outside of the field.

Yeah man, do this thing!

Just like in a Gameboy game... a nice tight little world... and all its inhabitants... made out of little building blocks... Why can't these little pixels be the building blocks for love..? For loss... for understanding"- James Kochalka, Reinventing Everything part 1 "I wonder if James Kolchalka has played Mother 3 yet?" Jonathan Holmes
