Web Video: Tasteful Understated Nerdrage
"My name is Bobby the Tongue, and without exaggerating at all; I'm basically the Pelé of complaining about video games. Meaning, not only am I staggeringly productive, when I'm not taking an unannounced break, I execute with such skill and elegancy that it will take your breath away."
MrBtongue, "Introducing Me"

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.
