But, I find him a little reckless with his power. He posts way too much flame bait for the sake of traffic, and ignores happy news for the opposite reason. He often posts the same stories multiple times (like... the exact same story), and mistakenly posts old news as new.... news.
Now, all this is done in the name of (supposedly) sharing anything and everything that has to do with Nintendo but I know folks (not me) who have submitted well-written reviews and other content and he's completely ignored it.
Just a little disappointing for someone who could do so much good for the Nintendo community. But still.... he's miles ahead of Neal =P
And most importantly, he's miles behind all those other awesome people on this list!!!
@NinSage I've emailed with Kevin back and forth a few times and I found him to be really nice, but maybe kinda scatter-brained. Once he posted some pics of a giant Wii advertisement I took in Times Square (and they got picked up by Kotaku which was kinda neat).
I stopped listening to the podcast a long time ago though, all those people talking at once with no editing, tons of laughing and inside jokes and most of the time very little actual discussion of gaming, what a mess!
Yup. Very friendly individual. Just not very responsible.
And yea, their approach to the podcast mirrors their approach to the site. They have tons of attention but they just provide .... basically filler.... very little regard for service to the audience. Way too much self-satisfaction.
Well, when you consider it's about $17 for the print copy, I guess not.
I can tell you right now, no way is this mag going to last long with those prices. Their heart is in the right place wanting to do this for free and giving the proceeds to charity and all, but I don't have a problem with them making money doing this. Get some advertisers. Or bye-bye.
@GameDadGrant $5 is reasonable for the digital version, and I'm planning on checking out the first issue. But part of the reason I buy magazines is because they're magazines. If I'm gonna look at a screen on my computer or my iPad or whatever, I might as well just come here, or to any number of other Nintendo websites. I was very interested in getting it in print, but not at $17 a pop.
