My name is Joe. I joined these here boards because I don't really know many online communities where the majority of people both embrace and distress over geekdom and all its unfortunate trappings. I'm genuinely impressed that members here possess and actually utilize their critical faculties because I was under the impression the internet doesn't usually come in that flavor.
Anyway, I suffer from the same love-hate affliction so here I am! I am pretty okay, really.
So! In line with my geekiness that I both celebrate and reject, I have a simultaneous throbbing admiration for / crushing disappointment in the games industry and have therefore made a bunch of silly, trollesque videos about recent game crapola. I posted this stuff in the Skullgirls thread but since (quite sensibly) not everyone may go in there, it was suggested I throw the links at more of you in a new thread. A good handful of folks have thus far said they are funny! Really!!! A few people have also compared my stuff to The Best Gamers, which I am totally not against, though I genuinely didn't even find out about the existence of TBG until like last month so this wasn't on purpose. I must've just plucked the style from the collective online unconscious.
Anyway here are links to all the silly junk I've been up to so far:
