All the best to you Nick!! Thank you for all the fun moments and for your insights on gaming, movies, TV shows, etc. And thank you for faithfully bringing us Sid’s Grocery Box.. Maybe he’ll share some of those tea sachets with you! hahaha

    Thanks Colonel! Much appreciated. The heavy burden of Sid’s groceries now falls on Justin and Ryan, but I trust they’re up to the task.

Wow really sad to see you go Nick. Thank you so much for all the great indie games you helped bring to PlayStation. I hope that with you leaving we don’t stop getting those kinds of games. Best of luck in your future sir.

About Metal Slug Anthology PS2 version on PS4.

The PS2 version of this is known for having severe input lag in Metal Slug Anthology. Will this be fixed before releasing this version on PS4? I imagine PS4 emulation will add even more input lag plus with today’s TV input lag vs CRT it would be pretty bad and annoying.

Always loved your stuff, Nick, and always good to have a beard around!

What a touching blogcast.. Nick, it must be a bittersweet time for you — having to leave friends, but moving on to something undoubtedly exciting. I’m eager to hear what is in store! I have little doubt that it will be great!

Sad to see you go Nick! Thanks so much for all the good times on the blogcast and your devotion to bringing us quality indie goodness. Hope to hear about your next endeavor soon. Maybe little baby Soma can be your replacement…

Nick, thanks for your time with the Blogcast, and good luck on future endeavors! I have to imagine that Nick is to thank for many of the cool titles that PlayStation has been able to put on its platforms. Cheers and hope to have you as a guest one day!

Happy Independence Day fellow citizens of the U.S.A.

I’m sad to hear about Nick’s departure, he will be missed.

    Thanks! No conspiracy here though, just a normal instance of someone leaving their job after many years doing it. Time for a change!

    Rpm2878 said:

    Is it just me or did they end the show, go to their meeting and then extend the show, with a farewell to Nick. I think he may have just lost his job. I’m going to assume (you know what they say) further that Nick had been unofficially working third party acquisitions and hoping to make it his full-time job. When Playstation was un-willing/able to accommodate him, he didn’t renew his contact. I’m just guessing, but his official title never seemed to fit his job description.

Wow, sad to see Nick go. Loved hearing him talk about movies, games, music, pretty much everything. And I loved the dynamic between him and Sid; Nick oftentimes dumbfounded by the many curiosities of Mr. Shuman (like his Amazon grocery box or tendencies to leave things unplayed or half-watched), Sid seeming to know exactly how to push Nick’s buttons. Good times. As a listener of the blogcast from the beginning, I can say he will most definitely be missed.

Best of luck in whatever you do Nick!

    Thanks Blue! That dynamic will inevitably continue when Sid and I hang out, maybe I can record some of it and put it on Twitter. :-)

    Joking aside, I really appreciate the kind words, especially from a listener who was there from the start! <3

Farewell Nick! I’m going to miss your in-depth discussions on indie games and films. Be sure to catch The Neon Demon if you haven’t already. I know you weren’t big on Only God Forgives, but Refn’s newest is still worth a watch, imo!

    Kaddyshacks said:

    July 10th, 11:47 am

    Oh, forgot to add: One of my favourite Nick memories is when Sid was talking about poutine, but mispronounced it, and Nick was laughing so hard he had to go off-mic. Kinda sums up the show’s dynamic in a way!
