The Obsolete Gamer Show #7: Tre Cardwell, Hollyanne Setola, The Sacramento Kings

The LAN party is alive and well! We talk with Tre Cardwell of LVG Lan about getting gamers together in the age of online gaming and what it takes to put together a successful LAN party. We also reminisced about video game related trolling done in our youth and not so distant past.

We also premiered out new Gamer Stories segment where we hear stories of achievements, humor, romance and pure ownage during gaming sessions and we were happy to start with Hollyanne Setola’s gamer story.

Finally, Obsolete Gamer has been doing Gamer Profiles for years and we continue to reach out to gamers from all over the world to discover their favorite game. We have had a lot of great profiles from celebrities to professional gamers and even a professional baseball player and now we can add the Sacramento Kings to that list as we premier their Gamer Profile.

We are in the age of gaming for all the good and the bad. The good, a smart, talented woman who began her love of gaming at age 5 and by age 12 was getting into competitive gaming where she has achieved much success. The bad, dealing with trolls, haters and mean spiritedness that are far too often associated with gaming.

Alt F4 was honored to feature Hollyanne Setola in our latest episode where we talked about her history of gaming from being introduced to gaming by her grandmother who worked at NASA, to her Counter Strike days with her teammates. We also talked about the current landscape of gaming and todays gamers and the difference between now and only a few years ago. Our discussion about bullying and internet trolls sheds some light on what many, but specifically women deal with in gaming today.

Overall an excellent talk with a very interesting gamer. We hope you will watch and let us know what you think.
