How Voice Actor Rob Paulsen’s Characters Have Changed Lives

Growing up with so many of Rob Paulsen’s projects made me all the more excited to hear that he had recently released a book, Voice Lessons: How a Couple of Ninja Turtles, Pinky, and an Animaniac Saved My Life.

Is the “Madden Curse” Real?

Dr. Mario World: Just What the Doctor Ordered

While Super Mario Run wasn’t an entirely smooth ride, a relaxed puzzle game like Dr. Mario fits ideally in the palm of your hand, which gives me plenty of hope for Nintendo games on non-Nintendo consoles in the future.
