Howdy, users! I'm MattBodega, Whiskey Media's newest intern, part-ish time writer, and profession idiot. I'm hanging around the Whiskey Media offices for the summer, doing whatever spare chore they can conjure up for me. But when I'm not alphabetizing comic books
or uploading video game trailers
, I'll be on the board of Anime Vice and occasionally posting on the front page.
If my first news story
is any indication, I'm a video game player, and a devoted one(It was my work on sister site GiantBomb that allowed me to get this internship at Whiskey!) My exposure and enjoyment of Anime comes from the influence the style has had in modern video games. I'm a huge fan of games like Eternal Sonata, Tales of Vespiria, the Final Fantasy franchise, and Persona 4
. I I'm also a huge fan of the Studio Ghibli
films and more serious Anime such as Grave of the Fireflies
. If you want to talk about films that scream the majesty of the medium from the mountaintops, it's hard to go wrong with the works of Miyazaki or Grave of the Fireflies.
I'll be around the site, so if you have any questions, or you just want to berate me for writing the same news story twice
, shoot me a PM! See you all around!
