ABOUT THE PODCAST
Long ago in a dining room somewhat far away during a dark and dangerous time, Game Goblin looked up from his GM screen and raised an eyebrow. His motley crew of gamers once again digressed from the adventure for a rage fueled rant on their concerns in the fantastical land of gaming at the time... And with that, he leaned back and simply said, "We really should be recording this stuff". So, in midsummer of 2015 the Blunt Force Gamers were formed to do what they do best, play a lot of games and gather together to give their honest thoughts and opinions. The B.F.G. crew stands by a simple formula, tell the truth candidly, Unscripted, Unprepared, and Uncensored. (Terms and conditions may apply.) Our show ranges from GMing advice, MMOs, Console & PC gaming, a splash of card gaming, current events, and more. Join along... If you dare. The Blunt Force Gamers update weekly on Itunes and YouTube every Sunday, Our main host is at Podbean.com for Android users.
WHO WE ARE
Now that you know a bit about the content of our wretchedly politically incorrect little corner of sound, this is the perfect place to introduce ourselves.
THE GAME GOBLIN
The Elder Horror
First introduced to the world of gaming with a casual glance of the original printing of Deities and Demigods back in the 80's and lured in by the view of half naked ladies. This humble (HAH HAH humble) goblin in his grubling phase was reading Xanth books and watching sword and sorcery movies long before his 10th year of age. (That is in human years, closer to 15 in gobbely years.) It wasn't much longer later until he had his first true mechanical gaming rig... a HP 286. Gone were the days of monochome screens and alas he was chugging away in dark dungeons in 8-bit / 16 color glory! He fully dove into pen and paper RPG's shortly after the 2nd edition VTM books hit the shelves, and as much as he hates to admit it, this led him to join a group known as the Camarilla and do a bit of LARPing.
Since his humble beginning delving into as much gaming as he could muster, playing virtually anything that caught his attention, he has had quite the journey... or a quest... He's dabbled in modding and has been credited in a few works as a creative writer and consultant, Failed at photobombing Steve Jackson (who is an awesome human too!), Hung out with some of the crew of Zombie Orpheus Entertainment, Had breakfast with the president of WOtC, And has been in and out of the gaming industry on many levels for a number of years in various roles such as surviving "Hell week" during the launch of the N64 and being one of the guys running the shop at a local game/hobby store.
