Gourmet Gamer Future

As you might have noticed, we at Gourmet Gamer have been a bit quite of late. Besides the newly ramped up Twitch presence, not much has come out in the way of new content. And I would like to address that. Simply put we have had some shake ups that we have been slow to recover from. First, our dear friend Floyd passed in December. No one is sure why or even where he is buried. Frankly, I think he faked his death to get out of child support. Johnny decided to take a sabbatical, something about finding himself in the mountains of Peru. Who knows. I suspect he will back soon. Trent is in rehab. He really took to the Ayahuasca. I have Joe Rogan to thank for that. Its not all doom and gloom though. Both Suzy and Stu have teamed up and are performing on Musical.ly ( search for suzyrocket ) and I wish them all the success in the world.

Now, you may be asking, where does that leave Gourmet Gamer. Well, with the downsizing of the team, we are going to focus on three things.

  • Gourmet Gamer Gaming – This will be filled with game reviews and our weekly twitch streams.
  • Gourmet Gamer Podcast – Zane and Evan will continue their successful weekly bitch sessions on everything from movies and video games to potato chips. We will return with a new episode March 27th.
  • Gourmet Gamer Props & FX – This is not entirely new but has mostly been in the shadows. As some of you are aware, I like to dabble in prop making and special FX. I have decided to really focus on this and hopefully provide you some awesome creations from your favorite movies and video games. I am currently working on a Destiny gun, Skyrim helmet and an original mask. Evan is already producing a lot of cool shit over at evanparrafx.com.

I know this is a departure from where we started but its for the best and will allow Gourmet Gamer to continue. I will making updates to the site over the next couple weeks so keep and eye out. I want to thank every one that has supported us thus far and hopefully will continue supporting us going forward.

Extra Life 2014 Success

1216

Our first year doing Extra Life is in the bag. I’m not going to lie, it was rough. I LOVE video games but 24 hours is super hard, especially considering we chose to play the 10 hardest (Ghost N Goblins, Battletoads, Ninja Gaiden, Contra, Ikaruga, Castlevania, Mike Tyson’s Punch Out, Silver Surfer, Echo the Dolphin, and Marble Madness ) games ever made. But who are we to complain, the kids we do this for are in much worse shape.

We unfortunately did not meet our goal though ( There is still time. You have until Nov 3oth. 2014, so get those donations in ) but we did raise $475. And in the process were able to award some nifty prizes. I want to congratulate and say thank you for donating to the following individuals :

Cindy Fielding – Joki T-Shirt

Tasha Olds – Marty McPrime T-shirt

Tom Hodges – Street Fighter Print

Luz Chamarro – Deadpool Funpack

Tom Meny – Sticker Funpack

Will Kouf – How to Survive a Sharknado

Even if you did not win, thank you for your support. I already have bigger plans for next year.. some real next level shit.
