MUD2MMO : Baudville or Is Online Entertainment Legitimate?

Snappy patter and jokes, he knows what pleases the folks.

I was talking with a friend of mine early in the week about the “news of the week”.  If you’re not a youtube contributor you may not be aware of the “ALL OF THE THINGS” moments that sometimes happens.  But in the span of a week or so, Nintendo made a grab for monetization, Microsoft insulted the gaming community, blip made a move against ad blockers and content creators defended it with “we need the money”.  The latter is still rolling, and not going all too well.

But I said one thing that was enough to get my friend to badger me into making a show about it.  I likened the online video community to “Vaudeville”.  And, well, this video is the result.  Feedback is, as always, welcomed and encouraged.

I'm a gamer. I'm a reality junkie. I'm a cynic. I'm a dinosaur. I'm a writer. I'm so much more than a paragraph can say. You want more? Ok. I started a video game show on the internet some time ago. See, I've played video games since Intellivision and Atari 2600 and PONG back in the day. Retro-gaming doesn't really fire me up as much as seeing how the community ticks. And after seeing way too many "I'm too young to have played this game when it first came out but it MAKES ME SO ANGRY" reviewers who would happily eviscerate my childhood for lulz... yeah I tossed my hat into the ring. the quickly scooped it back up, I'm told I have a bald spot that needs covering. Outside of gaming... yes I go outside shut up... I like to play paintball when I can. I snowboard a lot, when I can. I go mountain biking, when I can... seeing a trend yet? I prefer reality to video games, but at 4 AM it's hard to find a paintball game going on. Lately I livestream a lot, playing video games for an audience.
