The Noob Shelter was accidentally created in 2010 during a broadcast of The Everything Sux Show. During that broadcast, the hosts were trying to come up with a new name to brand the show. Originally The Everything Sux Show was to become The Noob Shelter but after much debate, it was decided by Fourside Media owner Matthew Kaczmar to remove the video game aspect from Everything Sux and integrate it into The Noob Shelter and market it as an independent brand.
Between 2010 and early 2014, The Noob Shelter was built from the ground up and originally started as a Facebook page. When interest started to grow, it was decided to slowly start the rollout of a live webcast.
The Noob Shelter focuses on all things gaming from Video Games to Tabletop Games, we strive to bring you the news and updates you need to get your game on. We also talk about up and coming technology as well. Our webcast focuses on roundtable discussion and debate of the latest news within the gaming industries themselves.
The show is currently hosted by Matt Fugitive, Kennori, John PortaPotty, and Rythone. We broadcast on Tuesdays at 9pm Pacific time. The show is transmitted out of Puyallup, Washington and streamed live via hitbox.tv on the Noob Shelters channel. Porta and Kennori remote in via Skype from Spokane, Washington, and Freih remotes in via Skype from somewhere (we’re thinking some sort of bunker).
The Noob Shelter is produced by Fourside Media in Puyallup, Washington.
Name: Matt Fugitive
38 OLD AS DIRT
Location: Somewhere near Tacoma, WA
Bio: Considered the old cranky one and vintage of the group, Matt first started gaming on the Atari 2600 and continued the climb from there. He’s known for owning almost every game console since the launch of the NES. Matt is also a big PC Gamer with many hours logged in Team Fortress 2, Minecraft, and other games. He hates DLC, Zombie games, and brushes off most modern games as being to Michael Bay’ish, flashy and overly complex (again, he’s an old cranky gamer). He prefers simplicity over style and is a huge fan and supporter of the indie video game movement.
Age: Unknown (younger than Matt though)
Location: The Federalis Way, WA
Bio: He’s the smart one. Currently serving time at a local cable company, Rythone runs his own modded Minecraft server and is also the host of his own YouTube show called Horizons. He also acts as our lead Chat Room enforcer and will smite those that mock the Shelter. Like Matt Fugitive, his steam library is enormous and by the time he plays through everything he should be about 123 years old.
