Brad Venable's Blog

 

He was once described as "holding down the XY...both generations...and chromosomes." Brad smiled at the appropriately geeky compliment. 

Brad talks for a living. Incessantly. 

You've probably heard Brad's voice at least twice in your life and never even knew it, because Brad's voice is heard on everything attached to a speaker.

Somewhere in the world, he's probably talking right now, and that's oddly comforting.

He could be talking somewhere, and yet could be sleeping at the same time. *mimes 'mind blown'*

What Will Rogers said about liking the weather in Oklahoma could apply to someone who said they've never heard Brad's voice: "Just wait."

Superheroes that save the day, godlike wizards that mingle with mortals just because he can, storytellers that set the scene for your next adventure, demonic hellbeasts that utter like the crack of doom or the Cleric to send them back there, even the smartass narrator in Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards: Reloaded, and everything else in between...Brad has created characters that run the gamut of video games that kids (and those who still wish they were kids) play. 

Computer tech, comic book collector, pop culture nerd, and avid gamer, Brad covers about every sub-culture cliché known to man, and can still sound like the don't-dare-call-him-coolest hipster to ever wear clothes ironically. Now that's irony for you. 

Brad lives most of his life in a box, yet was not actually the inspiration for the Alice in Chains song. That was a point that needed clarifying.

Brad loves what he does, and does what he loves, with his beautiful wife Katie always by his side. Except when she's at work. Then she's not quite by his side.

Apologies never happen in reporting. When they are, they 're more like, I 'm sorry you feel that way.

I 'm having a lot of fun with this game. I think that it 's valid to say that the campaign and multiplayer games are vastly different, but to say that you 're robbing a player of multiplayer mechanics in the campaign is only as valid as saying that you ...

Wonderful article. I see this ...

Wonderful article. I see this opening the door for a series of classic games that were groundbreaking in its level design. Very well done. One minor correction: Moblins were never in dungeons, those are Goriyas. Thanks again. Great read
