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.

  • One week on, one week off

    A few weeks ago I talked about taking a break from gaming. Not a forced break but a natural one where my time was taken up with events, family and friends. During this break, I didn’t have that gaming itch. This was a positive I’d not experienced before. The...
