Show X - Episode 164 - Wayne’s adventures through Nan Desu Kan

Ken is running the show today, so that Wayne can report live from Nan Desu Kan 2014. Things go
mostly smooth and Ken still manages to get the video stream working! It also seems that Ken may need some good recipies for cooking up fluffy rats that eat electronics... Wayne pretty much hogs the entire show with his fun times at NDK. Lt Fork and Kur0 are hanging out in the background and make little cameos during the show. Ken leaves the mics cracked during the music break, so you get a little extra candid action from the NDK room along with Wayne munching away and slurping on some snacks... Show X is very professional.

Octale Writing TechRaptor.net

VTW Nation:

From time to time since I stopped actively podcasting, I've applied to become a writer for gaming and technology websites.  I've never done written news and commentary of any form beyond editing copy for news broadcasts on AM radio in the very first job I ever held.  Applying everything I have learned over the years in radio, television and podcasting to the written word is a challenge I've always wanted to take on, but I have never had the opportunity to explore.  Earlier this week, I applied for a Games Writer position with TechRaptor.net using the reviews and opinion pieces I've written for VTW Productions.  My application was accepted, and my first article is currently in review for posting.

That said, THIS IS NOT GOODBYE!  TechRaptor's Ethics Policy allows me to stay active and connected with gaming communities. I asked specifically about VTW Productions to make sure I could continue to be a part of the awesome community that we built.  I will be around for the foreseeable future, but my blog posts will appear on TechRaptor.net instead.

As I embark on this new challenge, I want to thank everyone who has come along for the ride over the last 8 years.  There have been good times and bad times, but the one constant through it all is none of this would have ever been possible without your support.

See you soon,

Let’s Talk #GamerGate #NotYourShield and George Orwell

I was asked what #Gamergate was over twitter this weekend, since I’ve been rather active in it based on an article posted on August 28th on Gamasutra.  So I’ll start this post off with the conclusion which is this: #Gamergate is a fundamental rejection of an orthodoxy presented by a set of totalitarian fake journalists corrupt to the core.  #NotYourShield is a simultaneous double fundamental rejection of that orthodoxy by the very people the fake journalists said didn’t exist as “gamers” in the fake journalists’ orthodoxy.  If you’ll pardon the dystopian science fiction pun what was attempted in the days leading up to and over Labor Day weekend was nothing short of Orwell 101.

Cloud Sorced #013 & 014 - Chilin with Death

Sorry for the Delay, but Holiday and all.   So Death has missed out on some pretty Epic movies.  Poor guy.
