SUPER POST!

Updated 2/26/14

Hello once again. The new interview for The Interviewer is up. An interview with deathink, the guy who made Pico Radio and Asslevania: SOTB. Go and check that out now.

Also if you're a fan of Mass Effect I am chronocling my journey through the whole trilogy. You can read my journal on Tumblr. If you don't have a Tumblr account, but wish to comment on my journey then I have a thread set up here on Newgrounds. Chapter 4 of my journal is the latest release. If you want updates on my Mass Effect Journal then stick to the thread I made or you can follow me on Facebook. That's about all. The writing schedule is down below. Looking to make a permanent news post with this information so I can just link it.


Mass Effect Journal

SUNDAY-TUESDAY - Captain's Log

The Captain's Log is filed in-between story missions that are done throughout the Adventure Log. It is where I talk to my crew members about the mission and learn more about the universe through my in-game Journal and Codex. It will be posted between the days of Sunday through Tuesday.

WEDNESDAY - Adventure Log

These are the story missions plus sidequests done within the Citadel. This is where I'll be talking about the gameplay mostly with the story that is part of each mission.


The Interviewer

WEDNESDAY - Brand New Interview

The usual Wednesday update back in force until we reach Interview No. 200.


Somber Pensive

FRIDAY - New Episode

A new interview will be posted each Friday. This is where I normally interview regular users, for the most part. These are different from The Interviewer in a lot of ways. I am open to suggestions for these, but for the most part I work on them myself.

FRIDAY - New Conversation

A new conversation could also appear. This is not an interview, but just myself and another user engaging in a conversation. Whether it is through chat, PM system, or E-Mail. If there isn't a new episode of Somber Pensive then there will be a new conversation.


 


NEW NEW NEW!

Hello once again my Newgrounds bretheren. Well there are some new things heading your way. First off we have a brand new interview up on The Interviewer. A second interview with scriptwelder to discuss his latest releases and his future projects. Also on the other side I have a new interview up on Somber Pensive with Earfetish so check both of those out. Also if you're not following my Dohn page then please do.

Noting The Interviewer coming to an end, it won't be coming to a complete end at Interview 200. I just won't be updating it on a weekly basis. Any new interviews that appear on The Interviewer will be specials. It may come back at full force one day, but I am looking to move onto other projects, especially on my Dohn page and through Club Stoic. Which if you're a fan of video game music then please join us there.

If you have a Tumblr account then please follow me there. The Underground is where I will be posting my video game content, one being my Mass Effect Journal where I am chronicling my journeys through the Mass Effect Trilogy. If you like reading what I write, I thank you very much. Here's my writing schedule.

So there you have it. There is my schedule. I thank you all again for reading my works and reading The Interviewer for the past five years. It truly means a lot to me and the other interviewers as well.



Hello party people. Well with this new blog system I have been crossed on whether or not to update the past interviews with this new system or just leave them be. I have decided to leave them be and let the newer interviews use the new blog system. The Interview Codex will still use the old system though.

There have been two interviews in the wings ready to be posted. Since the long delay I feel you all have a right to know. The first being an Interview with Dean written by interviewer J-Rex who changed his username to Atlas. The second interview is an Interview with scriptwelder #2. The Interviewer - Index Page has been re-done to fit with the new blog system and the new interview ill be up this Wednesday.

Some sad news though. I am planning on stopping The Interviewer at the 200th Interview. I have felt that I and the others who write for The Interviewer have taken this project as far as it can go. I also would like to move onto other writing projects on my different accounts here as well as on my Tumblr. Speaking of which...

My brother and my friends all got together and got me the Mass Effect Trilogy for Christmas, since they've all played the games and I have never played them before. I have decided to chronicle my adventures in the Mass Effect series through a journal. I thought the best way to have everybody read it would be through Tumblr. So I have a Tumblr account and you can read my Mass Effect Journal there as well. I intend on posting other video game related articles on there as well.

That's all in all of what I've been up to. How have you been?


Tom's New Toy!

12/4/13 by The-Great-One
Updated 12/4/13

Tom Fulp decided to give us all a brand new toy! An actual blog system! You can get the full details in this thread or on his news post. So there is quite a bit excitment about it, especially for myself. So this is just me playing around with this new system.


Holy crap did you see that? I made a horizontal line! Do you know how amazing this is going to be for The Interviewer? No more having to make spacer with  stupid little "=" marks! Oh and if I am quoting someone like this...

Dude, you have a fucking giraffe neck

- TheSouthernTower

I can do that nifty little quote thing as well! That's awesome! It's a bit weird to work with though. It is do-able though. Also it does get confusing for when I want to go to another paragraph how it does an automatic spacing for me. That I'm not to keen of, but I can manage, since other blog sites and word processors work the same way. I guess I just like a bit more control. Can we still do bold font ourselves? <b>Like this?</b> We shall see. However one thing that will become very beneficial is the use of mutliple pictures.

Aren't they Amazing?


Why yes. Yes they are. One question I have though is for the readers of The Interviewer. With these new tools in hand, should I go back and re-do all the interviews and clean them up a bit. Or should we move on from the past and simply progress?

1725585_138621234461_TheInterviewer.jpg

Also there seems to be no more text limit, which I find awesome. I'm gonna ask Tom a bit more about this. So far so good though.

TL;DR - To the bottom with you.

I graduated early from high school in 2007. My parents as an early graduation present gave me a laptop. Before my laptop I used an old Compaq desktop that would freeze if you decided to scroll the page too fast. Well my laptop was wonderful, it had Windows Vista and was fast as a whip. Every single interview up until the latest one with Hikarian was written on that laptop. That laptop had a name and her name was TEX, after the character from Red vs. Blue.

However time is not kind to technology, especially laptops. So TEX now sits in a bag, in my closet. I have saved enough money to purchase a new computer. I got a desktop this time around, named her TEX 2 and so here we are.

So now I am truly back on Newgrounds, full time. The Interviewer will be kicking like you have never seen before. The next interview posted will be with deathink and you can expect new interviews every Wednesday. This will start two weeks after Thanksgiving.

TL;DR - I got a new computer, writing more interview stuff, some day about a turkey, *gobble gobble*


Update #7 - Russian Roulette

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Hello once again. How have you all been? I've been better I can say that much. You wouldn't believe how much not having an up-to-date computer can make you miss Newgrounds. When I destroy my old computer I will gladly show you a video of the destruction. Anyway...

Brand new interview with Hikarian has been posted. She won the Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation this year you know. You can read it through this link or can you go read it in the codex made by deathink. Also yes, deathink will be getting interviewed sometime soon.

Also in a thread I made in the Video Games Forum, I decided to look back at past games and see how they were then and how they would hold up if they were released nowadays on today's consoles. It is called shockingly enough Then & Now. Check it out and give your own opinions on some of your favorite games from the past.

I have been meaning to post this for quite sometime now, but due to computer difficulties I couldn't get around to it. Musician Benjamin Tibbetts here on Newgrounds has interviewed me for his website, you can read the interview here. Also Benjamin Tibbetts and I had a discussion about music and video games on my separate account entitled A Conversation with Benjamin Tibbetts so you can go check that out to. I also talked to Dean and that was pretty cool to.

That's all I got right now.


Update #6 - I'm Back

8/28/13 by The-Great-One
Updated 11/13/13

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Well I'm back here on Newgrounds. Been gone for a few months though, but I'm back and I'm here to stay. I guess I do owe those who wondered where I had gone an explanation though, so here goes nothing.

I recently got a job and that has been eating up most of my schedule. Not to mention on days that I have had off I have been reading and building a library over time. Plus I planned a birthday party and will be attending an upcoming birthday party. Also one of my friends was here for the Summer and he wanted to get as much friend time in as possible. In other words... I have a life outside of Newgrounds and it attacked during the Summer. Now Autumn is approaching though, so I have returned.

A lot has probably happened on Newgrounds that I'm not aware of, so if anybody wants to get me up to speed then please do so.


Update #5 - Writing and Working

5/12/13 by The-Great-One
Updated 8/28/13

[ Previous Update | Next Update]

Well I am currently employed. Which means I'm gonna have to work my work schedule around my writing and Newgrounds schedules. For those whose entries have passed the NATA Open Round, if I haven't left you a review yet, I apologize and will get to you as soon as I can.

In news with the Interviewer, some new interviews have been posted. One being Interview with Jaltoid and ObliviousEmi. If you haven't watched that then check it out.

I intend on posting more articles in the Video Game Forum, as well as doing some interesting things with Club Stoic, a club dedicated to video game music. I don't really have much more to say than that.


Update #4 - Back In Time

3/28/13 by The-Great-One
Updated 5/12/13

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

The Interviewer still moves along its way. If you haven't checked out The Interview Codex yet I suggest you do. Not only is it an archive of all the interviews done by The Interviewer, it is a growing one. All new interviews posted on The Interviewer will also be posted in The Interview Codex.

As it is the Interview with WoodTick and Interview with Sarkazm are both up now. So if you haven't checked them out yet then please do! WoodTick is the mind behind In Solitude and Nyan Cat - Genre Hopping while Sarkazm is behind Smile! and LUCKY DAY FOREVER.

Speaking of Genre Hopping, the Monthly Writing Contest 13: Genre Hopping is over. The winners have been announced and you can check them out here. It was fun to be a judge in this contest and read all these entries.

The Newgrounds Annual Tournament of Animation is gonna be starting up again, one of the prizes is going to be an interview with The Interviewer. Among a 1-Year Membership of Adobe Creative Cloud and cash prizes for passing each round, all donated by Newgrounds members. Two past winners include Dave Bruno and Emrox. Competitors in these contests have also been interviewed despite not winning, they are TmsT and Zeurel. The found of NATA has also been interviewed, his name is Adam Witt. The Interviewer has its connections with this tournament and I am proud that it is. If you're an animator then you can enter this tournament. Just check in for the thread on April 1st, the link to it should be on the front page of Newgrounds, so keep your eye out for it.

Tom and I have been talking about the Literature Portal for a while now. He gave me some info that he's thinking about giving Newgrounds an old-school design. When I can get more information about this then I'll update this post. It would be interesting to see an old design of Newgrounds.

Other than that, in this era of video game related review shows, I would like to share one that Newgrounds had. It's called Strategy Guide. There weren't many episodes in this series. Although with gamers and video games growing in number, I think it's time for this show to make a comeback.

Update #4 - Back In Time


Update #3 - The Interview Codex

[ Previous Update | Next Update ]

Newgrounds member deathink is quite possibly one of The Interviewer's biggest fans. For he has mustered his energy together to bring forth something The Interviewer's readers have been wanting for quite sometime now. That is The Interview Codex. So you can read all the interviews in one flash format.

If you haven't already you should follow deathink for more creative things he has to bring to Newgrounds.
