As many of you on the forums already know, Kreyg has started a thread answering the age-old question of “When ya castin’?” While it isn’t an exact time frame, he has decided that because of how often he continues to be badgered back to the world of video game broadcasting,… Read More »

Earlier this week, we brought you an interview with Interceptor Entertainment’s Dave Oshry and Aaron Alexander where my most well-received question seemed to be one where we decided who we would put into Rise of the Triad from Hollywood.
