Tasteful, Understated Nerdrage
is a series of what can best be described as a series of video essays detailing tropics relating to the video game industry with an educational intent and a twist of humor. Admitting upfront to draw a lot of inspiration from Red Letter Media
's Plinkett Reviews
, the videos are made by Bob "MrBtongue" Case and hosted on his YouTube channel
Discussing tropics ranging the from current state of gaming journalism and MMORPGs
, over the use of classic storytelling techniques in video games, to selected video games, the videos combines academic discussion with copious amounts of sardonical humor and Self-Deprecation
to achieve TUN's mission-statement: "To change the world for the better through strategic complaining."
Sometimes, MrBtongue also likes to do what he calls "reverse complaining", for that he uses the Spin-Off
series Creepy, Obsessive Nerdlove
wherein he takes a more positive look at certain titles, both films and video games.
