Dr ashen - reviews crap retro and rip-off games on youtube!

Post by Muzer » Fri Jun 20, 2008 7:11 pm

I have known of this guy for a while now, but I only just thought to let you guys know about him. Basically, he does rather humerous reviews of rubbish retro games, and rip offs of modern things as well. He does a few other things but his reviews are best IMHO. He is also British (yay!) He has a fair few reviews, but I would recommend to watch them all, oldest to newest.

Ive seen his stuff befor actually, I think it's entertaining but AVGN is alot better - perhaps you cant compare them, the styles are totally different. This guy is good at what he does.

i've never really liked AVGN to be honest, but i've followed Ashen's videos loosely ever since i saw one of them in the B3ta newsletter i think it was..

Seen a couple of his videos, again from the b3ta newsletters. His deadpan delivery suits me better than AVGN. Though I like both him and Zero Punctuation. :)

Funny you should link those two, he has been accused of sounding like a slowed down Zero Punc... :)

I backed it, excellent toilet read as the reviews are only a few pages but are very well written with good humour, as you would expect from Ashens.
