In the nouveau media culture, a YouTuber can have a million devotees (read: channel subscribes) and still be completely unknown to the gaming community at large — much less the YouTube viewing community.  So it was with little surprise that I came across Sl1pg8r, another burgeoning star I’d never heard of who’s about to surpass one million subscribers.

Stalking LeVar: A Gloriously Goofy Series

Stalking Levar, YouTube, Levar Burton, Heidi Cox, Stephanie Pressman, YouTuber Review

Most shows on YouTube feel a bit…stale. The jokes are old, the characters unlikable and the plot overdone. Sometimes it feels like you’re watching an actor’s reel, or a writer pitching their show to a network. Most of the time, you watch the pilot and don’t even bother watching another episode. Stalking LeVar is none of those things. This original ...

Game Grumps Live

It’s Thursday night and I’m cruising down Melrose.

Stardew Valley: A Harrowing Tale of Addiction

When most people think of video games they think of a blandly handsome white guy gunning down endless hordes of aliens/nazis/brown folk. However video games can be about more than violence. Sometimes they are about matching rows of colored blocks together, deciphering puzzles, or farming parsnips. As a kid, one of my favorite games was Harvest Moon, a classic series ...
