Ben Nother

Ben is like a fine wine, he spends far to much time in cellars. He deliberately developed a stutter and a slur and walks with a limp to conceal his raging alcohol problem. Once beat up a fish for looking at him funny. Ben hosts the Tanked up podcast, but we are pretty sure he isn't aware of that.

  • A love for Virtual Photography

    In an industry which seems constantly under pressure I sometimes need to escape my escape. Fan expectations, financial issues and anti consumer actions are brought up in gaming news daily.

  • Filling the Marvel Netflix Vacuum

    The final nail has been struck. The last two remaining Marvel Netflix shows have not been renewed. We’ve still got Jessica Jones season 3 to come. Hopefully it’ll live up to the wonderful first season, but it will not receive a fourth season irrelevant of how well it does....
