you went to hs with him? or just generally?

also, i guess related (ppl who went to school with tim) did anyone ever listen to the insert credit podcast way back when he talked about going to college with j*red f*gle? because holy fuck. i think it was a couple years before dude got caught being a creep and tim just talks for 15 minutes about how much of a creep dude was

no i didn't actually go to school with TR, I just mean to say i and most of my friends were luminous cave newts in glasses who would expostulate nonstop with one another in eltingville-style logorrhea-offs about video games and seeing him free verse about kojima gives me the fear that there's a pop quiz in spanish

Happy to listen to him talk though! can just pass on including his face in the story. no offense!

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 6 August 2019 20:47 (one year ago) link

i totally get that. there's nothing that throws me into a rage faster than someone who acts like me at some previous stage in my life. it's like FUCK OFF MAN

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 6 August 2019 21:01 (one year ago) link

yep. i have no greater scorn for anything than what i used to be. Looking forward to hating current me in the future.

That was really enjoyable. "In other words, like all video games, Death Stranding is *exactly* like Dark Souls. It should be called 'Tark Souls.'" Extra amusing to me because I've never played any Metal Gear games and only know them from one or two iterations of Smash Brothers, where the guy always reminds me of Snake Eyes from GI Joe, and what few clips I've seen of this one seem the farthest from a sneaky ninja assassin game, so it's hard for me to make a connection between that concept and whatever the hell this game seems to be. So I guess I'm ... excited? Curious? Certainly entertained by the simmering hype.

More people should review games months before they play them.

Tim goes deep on his 2010s:

(this is a super-depressing interview, btw)

icy bike chain rain (zchyrs), Thursday, 12 December 2019 20:33 (nine months ago) link

less depressing (likely)

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 16 December 2019 21:22 (nine months ago) link

actually still quite depressing!

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 16 December 2019 22:10 (nine months ago) link

i stand corrected. i kinda wanna take that guy out for ice cream.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 17 December 2019 03:19 (nine months ago) link

tim rogers, if you ego surf your way here by google, i live in brooklyn and will happily take you out for ice cream at ice and vice if you want. we can talk about not video games. Or Dark Souls!

tim has reviewed animal crossing new horizons, FF7 remake, and cyberpunk 2077:

ciderpress, Saturday, 1 February 2020 05:11 (seven months ago) link

All good, tho the Animal Crossing one is less tight and more depressed than most of his stuff. Dude is the most too-smart-for-his-own-good person I know of.

Swilling Ambergris, Esq. (silby), Saturday, 1 February 2020 06:01 (seven months ago) link

announcement: as many of you have decoded from my recent videos, i have decided to step away from full-time work at @Kotaku effective today, in order to focus on @ActionButton's #TRUCKHECK, other Exciting Endeavors, and my health.

Kind of a bummer, but he did seem pretty unhappy in that job. I'll look forward to whatever dude does next.

He seems cheerfully unburdened in that one

i enjoyed learning about the lore of the pink sonic shirt with japanese text that you can buy at target

ciderpress, Monday, 17 February 2020 16:06 (seven months ago) link

Guess that's me unsubbing from Kotaku's youtube channel then. No loss really as their non-Rogers content is pretty much worthless.

Tim is on the mend from the ‘vid and the patreon is live

HELLO! i have a patreon: one huge, monthly, hour-long, meticulous, unconventional video review of a game i love. i have 37 videos in the planning stages already.

sure why not

Daddy needs medicine!

silby, Wednesday, 8 April 2020 20:03 (five months ago) link

i googled tim rogers patreon to grab the link, and saw this tweet, which confused me because i forgot we're in 2020 and jsut saw "current month, current year"

(hang on a second: no, i am NOT making a patreon. i get paid a salary, everybody. and no, i am not going to stream "on the weekend." weekends are for walking around manhattan, watching the @criterionchannl, eating pizza, and reading books)

omg and the patreon link is in the tweet you posted. i am just crushing it on the internet today. absolutely smashing it

He’s got nerve surgery to pay for! Also he’ll be steaming FF7R all day Friday.

I'm of course on board. Joined at the mysterious $5 tier.

may the force leave us alone (zchyrs), Thursday, 9 April 2020 15:04 (five months ago) link

he's up to $6000 a month, he deserves it all and more!

silby, Thursday, 9 April 2020 15:06 (five months ago) link

whoa, really? i'm not sure i've seen a patreon go that high, wow! he does deserve it. he was the last good thing remaining at kotaku, which he almost singlehandedly kept afloat the last year or so

let me be your friend on the other end! (Karl Malone), Thursday, 9 April 2020 15:08 (five months ago) link


I found myself suddenly surrounded by numerous offers and opportunities to get paid more by doing less work to produce better content, while also reaching a wider audience. Ain't that the dream? Also, I want to be able to focus on our (Action Button Entertainment's) game TRUCK HECK more.

Also, the CEO was an idiot.

premiering at 4PM Pacific / 7PM Eastern / 23:00 UTC, the first Action Button review, of Final Fantasy VII Remake, over 3 hours

silby, Monday, 25 May 2020 19:50 (three months ago) link

dope but i think i will wait until after i've played the game to watch 3 hours of tim rogers about it

ciderpress, Monday, 25 May 2020 20:00 (three months ago) link

gonna do the opposite

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Monday, 25 May 2020 20:58 (three months ago) link

i don't think i'll ever play the real games. so i'm looking forward to experiencing the remake series through tim rogers

Karl Malone, Monday, 25 May 2020 23:06 (three months ago) link

whew, that first hour is fun but exhausting

Karl Malone, Tuesday, 26 May 2020 07:11 (three months ago) link

as someone who has never played ffvii and has no intention of playing ffvii or the remake this was amazing. only trouble is that i couldn't help reading everything in tim's voice for the rest of the day
