Ep. 50 - Retro Game Customization and Craftsmanship - Ryan Spence

Nostalgia for retro gaming is more prevalent than ever today.  This week’s guest Ryan Spence, founder of Ultimate Customs, sits down with me to talk just that!  What does he do? Ryan takes old-school gaming consoles, mainly the NES and turns them in to amazing works of art, customized with lights sounds, colors and designs!  Ever wondered how your old Nintendo would look if it were decked out like your favorite movie, band, tv show, wrestler or super hero?  Join us as we discuss the amazing process behind creating these masterpieces, retro gaming, the 90’s, the hip-hop community, adult nostalgia, the Patriots (eeew), and more!  Does Ryan have what it takes to design a strategy to defeat Rodrigo Borgia from Assassins Creed II in the BOSS BATTLE?

Episode 34 - High On Video Games

VIDEO GAMES ARE LIKE DRUUUUUGS…..yeah we said it….ok not really, we don’t want to start another early nineties “video games and violence” movement but there’s no question they’re addicting!  Our guests this week are Daniel Doan (CEO) and Raquel Hayner (Director of Marketing Systems) from Black Shell Media, a marketing company dedicated to helping indie developers get their games out to you!  We’ve roped them into a hard hitting episode where we tackle two serious issues: Racism on the internet and gaming community in the aftermath of the Dreamhack Hearthstone Tournament livestream as well as Apple’s censorship in games because they don’t like the content!  We talk about other stuff too of course like:  How to make a game addicting, live action video game movies, giant pancakes, astrophysics, Tencent’s new game console, how to market your game and much more!  Can our team apply enough SPF to defeat our boss of the week the Angry Sun from Mario Bros 3?
