    That's just a nervous mannerism he has picked up.

    Funny seeing Cleese in a typical Graham Chapman role instead of his usual authority figure.

    I've been in fairly close contact with Matt for several years now, so my OPINION (stressing speculation) here is a likely decent guess but not facts direct from his mouth:

    There are A LOT more YouTubers now, even on niche subjects. So you can do the same thing but get less views without your stuff starting to suck

    He's been redonculously busy the past year or so, not just with a new book but his teaching duties. So scheduling and conducting interviews is a bit harder at the moment

    I think some of the recent retrospectives and gameplay videos are simply because he wants to get back to his roots as a CRPG gamer and scratch that itch. I know of a couple of interview possibilities that have come his way so it's not that he just can't get them :)

    However as has been pointed out his Patreon is doing well, so there's not a general lack of interest in his videos.

    Amazing. I had the first version as an ebook, but I will definitely get this as a proper book once it's released. A bummer that there isn't a hard cover version though.

    What's the deal with Matt, no time to split his interview into episodes?

    Infinitron I can have CRC Press send review copies of Dungeons & Desktops 2nd Edition to press / influencers. Do you want one for yourself or someone else at the Codex to review?

    Still in pre-order, supposed to release May 12.

    Probably due to patreon supporters complaining. He would get more views when splitting it for sure.

    He put up a poll this week about this. So he is looking into it I guess.

    It won't be just an hour long advertisement for the book :D these are our topics:

    • Our personal top 3 CRPGs of all time
    • Most anticipated CRPG
    • CRPG that was the biggest disappointment

    Here's a show Matt Barton and I recently did to both help promote the Dungeons & Desktops book and just have some fun talking CRPGs.

    We discuss our top 3 favorite CRPGs, our biggest CRPG disappointments, and our most anticipated upcoming CRPGs :)

    First 20 minutes or so discuss the new book, then there is some Game of Thrones chat with my board op, then we dive into our Top 3 favorite CRPGS around the 28 minute mark. Rest of the show from that point is all CRPG discussion.

    Podcast via my website:

    Audio via Libsyn:
