Bleep Bloop - Your Best Game
I’m a few weeks late posting this, partially because I’ve been busy, partially because it was hard for me to find the right words. The video above is the final episode of Bleep Bloop.
This series means a lot to me, both as a nerd and professionally. Yes I worked on about 80 episodes of the show so I’m close to it. But even from the very start I thought of Bleep Bloop as important. Yes, the directive from Jeff was always “funny first” (after all the show aired on a comedy site), but I always felt like we were doing the community a kind of service. Even though were poking fun and prodding the industry and calling out bad games, we were also informing and speaking to a certain part of video game culture, and hopefully we expanded their horizons with our comedy video. You can see it in 8-bit Rock Band, Artsy Fartsy Games, Night Vision Goggles, Dante’s Infreno, Wii vs Kinect vs Move, iPad Games, and Uwe Boll.
As someone who follows tech and games journalism pretty closely there was really nothing else like it when I started working on the show at Episode 12 in January 2009.
Professionally, Bleep Bloop is what propelled me into a full time job at CollegeHumor. I early in my days freelancing for CollegeHumor I was brought in to shoot and edit this show. Shortly thereafter they hired me full time and I can thank CollegeHumor for seeing a producer in me and allowing me the opportunity to produce some of their highest profile content. Presently I’m a commercial / music video producer, but you can draw a straight line from freelance shooting and editing a few episodes of Bleep Bloop to where I am right now.
So please watch the final episode of a series I have a lot of love for. Oh, and you can spot me in the last one at 10:40 choosing my favorite game of all time Zombies Ate My Neighbors.
Nintendo just announced a 2D version of the 3DS… a 2DS. My roommate and I discuss (I’m on the right).
Just to clarify, I’m I pretty strong Nintendo defender. I bought a DS Lite, DSi and a 3DS all on launch day. I continue to love my 3Ds and I always bring it when I travel.
But like, this thing. This thing is weird.
I’ve been playing Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon for a few days. I really love it. If you have a 3DS it’s worth playing. The controls are solid, and it’s fun to play.
Also, Luigi uses a DS to communicate with Professor E. Gadd, and he just named it the Dual Scream. If that alone isn’t a reason to pick up this game, I don’t know what is.
Get Your Nintendo 3DS On March 27th!
That’s right the 3DS is launching in America March 27th and will run you $250. It will come in two colors: Aqua Blue (pictured) and Cosmo Black. Unfortunately, no launch titles were announced.
Really $250 isn’t that much to ask to live in the future right? The 3DS is the device that’s bringing glasses free 3D to the masses (already in Japan, soon globally) and that’s really exciting. I expect this technology to explode in the next few years.
So, I have to ask. Are you going to get a 3DS at launch? I’m considering it, but what about you?
