Let's party like it's 1999... or you know, 2001.
After nearly a year of making mediocre gaming videos, my friends and I have rebooted the channel! New art, new videos, and an intro! Thanks for checking us out, and we appreciate any attention you guys give us.
Here's my Christmas special to end off the year. My Youtube channel got a fairly good boost with my Spongebob review, and it's just nice to see people who actually like listening to my stuff. Have a good 2015 Newgrounds!
This is a project that took three months to make, not including a very terrible first draft from over a year ago. All the drawings are done by me, editing was done by me, all the footage was taken by me, and I'm very proud to present my review of Spongebob Squarepants: Battle for Bikini Bottom.
I'm going to update this post like a blog cataloging some of the shenanigans that went on during production, just for fun. Anyway, here it is:
My friends and I do some Let's Plays. https://www.youtube.com/user/TheNitrousTurtle
You can check us out if you want.
I made another one. I'm happy with the way this one turned out.
I'm starting university soon. I could've used an extra month of summer. Also Smash Bros is coming out soon, and my sister wants a 3DS, so I won't be lonely! P.S I'll play with you too if you want.
In other news, I've been watching a lot of Attack on Titan, How I met your Mother, and general videogame videos on youtube. I've also discovered that grapes are the best thing ever. Seriously, you should try them before they stop being cool.
Well, my first show really.
I've been wanting to make a show about videogames for a while now, so I made one that involves cartoons and game design. Every show about games has already been done to death, but I really just want to be able to say I did something creative with my life...
...that wasn't just about talking vegetables.
Obviously, I'd appreciate any feedback, as I will be producing future episodes, and I want to improve.
While this has been going on for years, the recent Connecticut Massacre has prompted much concern over our favourite form of interactive media, and even a program that allowed parents to send in violent games for a 25$ gift card for Church related activities.
This program was later cancelled after it was made clear the program runners weren't going to sell the videogames to fund schools or make parks, but destroy the games.
Then the NRA calls the videogame industry an "underhanded shadow industry". We all know that the NRA is not always the best source for informed opinions, considering they made 4 videogames all about using guns.
Now game industry heads are meeting with Joe Biden to discuss all this. I am not all that confident with the medium's ability to win this fight, even if Biden doesn't consider videogames to be the only factor related to violence in children.
I've grown up on videogames. Some of my favourite memories include zooming around in go karts filled with turtles and plumbers, and saving the day talking sponges in square pants.
I am like this at this point in time: A. Not interested in cars beyond getting from point A to B, and B. not into walking around at the bottom of the ocean.
The most violent videogame I played as a child was Lord of the Rings III, for Gamecube. It was rated Teen, and the only reason my parents bought if for me was because I told them I played it a friends house, which I had.
The game was quite violent, atleast by my standards. You battle waves of orcs, and they in vilent manner, sometimes through beaheadings if you pulled off ridiculous combos. But there was no blood. Enemies fell to the ground and slowly faded away. Also, I'M FIGHTING A FICTIONAL RACE OF PILLAGERS AND MURDERERS. This is still one of my favourite licensed games ever, and I did not want to grow up to be a swords man.
My parents were cautious of this game because it was slightly violent. I understand that know. I actually never had any desire to play an violent media of any kind. I was a pretty big wimp when it comes to that. My parents never had to worry about me playing any of those games (I was even scared of the LoTR game at first) so I never had the chance to be exposed to this "underhanded shadow industry".
My parents were not idiots. They did not let me watch movies or games that would be too violent, like the Matrix, which I watched with my dad. Presently I still don't like scary movies, but I like violent games. I love playing shooters with my friends, but I play the shit out of games like Kirby's Epic Yarn because both games are what they are: games.
TD;DR, Parents decide how their kids grow up. I didn't like playing violent games, and my parents supervised me when I did. There are ratings systems, and parents need to follow them.
I should note I live in Canada which has a drastically lower murder rate. Still, the U.S influences us in many ways, and I hope however this debate turns out is not one of them.
Share any opinions you have on this matter.
I really like Videogame music. I like it so much that I listen to it more than any other music. So I decided to creat an archive of my favourite themes from every game I've played.
Edit: So The-Great-One made a thread like mine in the Club/crew section (I should have thought of that) and named it Club Stoic. The youtube links really slow down your computer, so just let it load before viewing.
This is after my attempt at an official thread. It didn't catch on. So I'm taking matters into my own hands.

Recently Edd Gould of eddsworld animation died from a six year battle with cancer.
He was one of the best animators on Newgrounds, and will be missed very much.
He was one of my favourite animators, and Newgrounds (or the rest of the internet) won't be the same.
Please watch some of his movies to pay your respects.
