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
34 OLD AS DIRT
Location: Puyallup, Washington
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.
Location: Camano Island, Washington
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.
Location: Spokane, Washington
Bio: Brother of the notorious Matt Fugitive and JRPG master, Kennori started gaming on the SNES and blossomed from there. He’s not a fan of Microsoft or the XBOX but still respects them. He’s a big fan of Sony and the Playstation as well as a PC Gamer. You can catch him playing almost every MMO out there on the net. At this time, he’s waxing his garrison on the latest WoW expansion.
Name: John (PortaPotty)
Location: Spokane, Washington
Bio: Joining the Noob Shelter half way through Season 1, Porta is the semi-serious one of the group. He was recruited by Matt Fugitive and Kennori. He plays MMO’s and Lol. He doesn’t do much console gaming but knows his way around the PC pretty damn well. He also LOVES the Pokemon. You never actually see him on the show because he doesn’t have a webcam (as of yet) but he makes up for it with his colorful choice of placeholder images.
