On Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th Jon and Dom covered Play NYC http://play-nyc.com/ (New York City’s first ever dedicated Video Game Convention), organized by Playcrafting https://www.playcrafting.com/. We interviewed at least dozens of NYC-based Video Game companies, discussed their projects, and even got to go hands-on with gameplay.
Over the next couple of days we will be releasing these videos, so stay tuned!
A couple of weeks ago Jon was honored to interview budding Game Designer Robert Canciello. They discussed a myriad of subjects, such as LGBTQ representation in Video Games, how to find your passion, and the future of the gaming world. This rare interview shows what an up and coming game developer has to endure in New York City. You don’t want to miss this if you’re new to game development and don’t know where to start.
Do you need a formal education to get a job in the Video Game industry?
Game Development vs Game Design, do you need both or can you get educated in one or the other?
What are the standards and principles in the Video Game industry? Are they meant to be broken?
Why are there no Video Game History courses through formal Game Design college education?
All these questions and more are answered in this small series of videos. Hope you guys enjoy!
NYC, Geek Out!
P.S. Special thanks to Dominick Dimola for his incredibly professional video, editing, and production skills! Also thanks to Axel Nunez for helping tag, write descriptions, and title these videos!

Dom plays Resident Evil 7 in Virtual Reality as Jon watches (with amusement) in Actual Reality.
NOTE: There were technical difficulties in making this video. Basically the Game Capture’s video file was corrupted. Long story short we had to screen capture the Video portion off of Jon’s laptop. Then Dom had the arduous task of syncing the screen capped video, the Game Capture audio, and the video of Jon and Dom together. So big thanks to Dom for being all around Awesome!
However, if you notice some strange frame-rate dips, a cursor clicking on some annoying calendar and Facebook alerts, or anything else that might be considered “unusual”…please don’t blame the game, blame the players (Dom and Jon) :p
