Sup Holmes talks TV and violence with Matthew Walden

A very special Sup Holmes

[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. Subscribe to the podcast feed and find more episodes here.]

This week on Sup Holmes we’re taking a break from talking to game creators by getting in touch with a fellow member of the gaming press. Matthew “Tristero” Walden is a former Destructoid editor who has gone on to write for Geoff Keighley and create The Science of Games segments, both for Gametrailers TV. Since then, he’s moved on to working on shows such as LA Ink and Swamp People, though that doesn’t mean he’s done with gaming. 

We’ll be talking to Matt about his experiences in the industry, how suffering from Post Traumatic Stress and playing violent videogames have affected him, and whatever else he wants to talk about. Join us at 1pm PST/4pm EST for the full experience. It’s going to be packed!

"Where do dreams end and reality begin? Videogames, I suppose."- Gainax, FLCL Vol. 1 "The beach, the trees, even the clouds in the sky... everything is build from little tiny pieces of stuff. 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
