Welcome to the Matt Chat Blog

Hi, guys! I hope you enjoy my new blogging and podcasting site. YouTube is great, but sometimes you need a place to write out your thoughts instead of just making videos. I intend to use this blog to talk about game history and game-related issues, my game development efforts, and all the behind-the-scenes Matt Chat stuff that doesn’t make it onto the air. I’ll also be posting my audio podcasts here, so go ahead and bookmark it if you want to get the full Matt Chat experience.

There are so many exciting things going on this semester! For one thing, I’m the faculty advisor for the SCSU Videogame Design Club. They’re an awesome group, so hopefully I’ll be able to get them involved in Matt Chat and vice versa. I love the idea of the work I’m doing with the show making an impact on young people, who will hopefully leave the school and make games that folks like us will actually enjoy playing!

You know that I am a strong advocate of game history. I don’t see how anyone can seriously call him or herself a “game designer” without a thorough knowledge of the great games and systems of the past. I also think it’s vital for the new generations to know something about the people who made their favorite games.

If you have ideas for topics you’d like to see me cover here, just let me know!

    Hi Matt, I would love to help out in this new endeavor of yours; I’m a web application developer, so there might be something I can do, just send me an email :)

    Thanks a lot for the effort you put on each show!

    Hey Matt. Just a quick suggestion: light grey letters and white background in a window like one i’m currently typing it is a disaster. I’m hardly even see what i’m typing.

    On a side note. Idea is great especially after YouTube started to force you to setup a channel to even post a comment. And i don’t need Google+ (and don’t want) and all that additional garbage they want to throw in my direction with it.
