In this episode of Behind the Pixel, I figure out who the heck Alex O’Neill really is. Ever since he replaced me on Millennial Gaming Speak the weekend I got engaged, I’ve heard rumblings of a fly guy that podcasts for hours on end, knows Greg Miller, and has some thought-provoking things to say about video games. Listen in as I chat with Alex and learn about his living portfolio—Irrational Passions—and the future of the industry.
Dope Facts about Alex
- He is a mad lover of Chipotle
- He thinks Kingdom Hearts 2 is the best Kingdom Hearts game
- When Googling his name, the American-born, India-based actor Alexx O’Nell comes up first
