      Very good video a lot of great information I would recommend you to use more hand gestures but other than that great.

    • Concerned indie game fan

      Just FYI, IndieCade is a showcase of indie games; they’re not a developer. Judging from that game’s website, it looks like there’s 3 developers on it.

    • All that PETA game did was make me want to play Double Dragon again lol! 🙂

      PETA is a seriously disgusting organization. One of their goals is to ban all medical science (drugs, treatments, procedures) that came from animal testing. Oh, except for leaders of PETA. They can benefit from the research so they can continue to “save” the animals, many of which they euthanize because “it’s better than living in captivity.”

    • I think a lot of people who support PETA really care about animal abuse and want to do something about it. I usually support the ASPCA and WWF, organizations that rely less on flashy media attention and focus on specific issues.

    • Ha! That’s what I thought. The arcade version, of course.

    • Oh thanks, I’ll amend the article. Gotta check my facts! Indie games get little media attention as it is, now I’m getting stuff wrong. Arg!

    • Ha, thanks for the compliment on the show. I find that everybody has an opinion on how I should look and act on my show. Someone else will think I gesture too much. Best if I just try to act as natural and comfortable as I can with a camera staring into my soul. I’ve been making plans for some time to incorporate a “set” so stay tuned to see Nerdy News continue to evolve.

      peta may once have been a animal rights organization.. now they are just a bunch of hypocritical attention wh**es who long ago lost track of what they where about.
      I’m not sure how much truth it is but a friend of mine said that they (PETA) wanted to ban pokémon because it was animal abuse in it. I was like. WHAT? it’s not even real animals?
