    The Fate of Creative Series (Suggestions and Discussions)

    Project 7 was a clusterfuck in it's original run, and without John and Howard (which where many peoples favorite parts) it never had a chance to get off the ground anyway. Besides, Phil started funding without a damn clue what it'd be about. Think about it - project 7 is, in and of itself an unfinished name. it's what a film director would call a project that's not finished yet so the public doesn't get wind of it. Nothing about KOGaming turned out to work: Hits of the Week was all around a waste of time. It was just a short version of what had happened that week with minimal context. I get the Phil claims "Not only do you see the epic fails with my videos, but you also get the epic wins" - but his idea of "epic" are... interesting. To me, an epic win in Dead Rising was beating Jo Slade without any weapons. To him, it'd be getting through a crowd of zombies without taking 2 blocks of damage. To me, an epic win in Breath of the Wild was beating a Lynel without taking damage. To Phil, it'd be getting a stealth kill to work. The Hateful Truth is a watered down version of what he did back in 2009 with the series of the same name. The editing doesn't actually add anything - it may as well had been done in movie maker. Back in 2009, most reviewers of games were either corporations (IGN, Gamespot) or entertainers (AVGN and the endless clones of him), so a guy just sitting on a couch and talking about the game he just played was something else. But that's all it is now - almost a decade later with people getting better reviews out before the game itself is out. KOCC went limp, and I saw that coming. Not to be a dick, but since the creator doesn't get anything from Phil for their efforts, it shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. The Channel name itself feels like a placeholder name. "Knock Out/King Of Gaming?" Knock Out and Kingly are not how I'd describe Phil's gaming talents honestly. He's not the worst, but I certainly wouldn't call it special still. Phil's spamming of DSPGaming and general ignorance of the vlogs channel basically damages the reach of them. If he uploaded it to the vlogs channel, not enough people would look at them for it to be worth the effort. And anything special on DSPGaming has to pray that it gets noticed among the eight to sixteen parts he uploads that day - double so if it was a fighting game session. While I don't think it's a good idea to drop any creative projects outright, I also think he's put himself into a corner when it comes to... well, being creative.

    Sonic adventure 1, 2, or Shadow teh hedgehog?

    Honestly, not looking forward to any of these. I don't feel like him pulling an Arin and going "Look at these games people love! Aren't They foocking Awful guys?" with SA1 or 2. As For Shadow, he'll just bitch the entire time. And with Shadow being worse than 06 in a lot of areas, he'll never finish it. He'll only get one story line done and go "fuck this, never again" and it'll join Scarface as a detractor meme. Those are my predictions.

    KOGaming Script Contribution Patreon

    Well, I ran the idea too Phil first. He wasn't against me opening a Patreon for the idea, his only concern is if my scripts are any good. Anyway, I'm not Going to be opening the Patreon anymore. After doing some snooping around, I found a store nearby that's hiring, so I won't be so strapped for cash anymore. I still might send Phil a script every now and then to practice my writing, though.

    KOGaming Script Contribution Patreon

    So, with my KOCC Video taking longer than I wanted to (I have other projects and events in my life limited my time, and frankly the will to edit videos at the moment) I decided that I'd contribute to his channel by writing scripts for videos. As for why I'm opening a Patreon, it's so that way I can get something for this (As Phil himself can a-test to, it takes a lot of time for a short video). As for the Goals, I only have two. My first goal is simple - so long as I receive any donation of any amount, I'll write one script a month. The other goal ($100) will have me write a script for Phil a weekly. As for why I'm asking for the money - I have some projects I want to get off the ground (Particularly a Charity Stream in the upcoming weeks) but I need some game and equipment to do it. Now, as for the kind of videos that I'll be writing, I plan to make them fairly short and digestible videos. The Two series I plan to write for KOGaming is "Game Cliques" (Which will be a series talking about reoccurring themes and ideas in games, and discussing why they exist in the first place) and "Random Bits" (Which won't have any collective theme). As of right now, I have not set up the Patreon. I plan to do that in the next few days.
  5. Just asking. I think it might make his performance better.

    I'm going to be leaving soon.

    Well then, If this is just false news, I'll just keep my eyes and ears peeled to see if it's true. If nothing happens, then I won't bring it up again.

    I'm going to be leaving soon.

    Yep. I'm going to be leaving the forums After the Ocarina of Time Playthrough and most liekly deleting my account. And the Reason why (as well as why I'm putting this into the general topics) is simple: Docxing I heard that apparently, KG and BSV are either in favor of or outright encouraging Docxing people on these forums if they believe them to be detractors. And Considering that I don't live alone, I don't want to risk some maniac finding out where I live. Besides, Posting other people's private info is something I can't support. And as for KG and BSV, I personally recommend that you DON'T Docx people here. It makes the community look awful, and it takes away value from the $5 Patreon Goal knowing you get private access to a forum that takes your personal info. Also... It might be illegal and could in theory get you in legal trouble for terrorism since you're literally using fear and terror to keep people out of here. Just a bit of warning from a Squid who learned about that.

    I am a youtube red subscriber, how does that affect Phil??

    To explain, it depends HOW MUCH of Phil you watch. You see, YouTube takes some of you 10 bucks. The rest is split up between who you watch. So let's say you ONLY watched Phil, he'd get all of the money YouTube doesn't take. However, the more YouTubers you Watch, the more it gets divided. This is ESPECIALLY true for YouTube RED Original Series. Still, you're guaranteed to give Phil some cash for using YouTube RED regardless of View time.

    Thoughts on Donated Games.

    The part in bold I think is a bit too... hyperbolic, if you will. While I don't care for a good deal of Mainstream reviews (because I do think they're too biased), saying that they are biased because they don't know the value of a dollar is (if I'm to pull all my punches) very short minded. For all you know, they can keep perfectly in mind what it was like before their job to pay 60 dollars for a bad game. There's other things I want to say, but I'm too nice right now to say them.

    My thoughts on the state of DSPGaming

    I'm in full agreement. I couldn't tell if he was bragging about being a one man show or being upset by it. I think leaving Twitch was a horrible Idea, and instead should of just lowered his bit rate.

    Will Phil ever Play Sonic Adventure?

    I wouldn't call him execptional... but I am curious how that would work.

    Will DSP ever hit 'Mainstream' again?

    Your first Paragraph brings up some good points As for PSVR, It could put him on the map. However, it's rather or not he tries to go anywhere after the fact is what hurts him more than anything.

    Will DSP ever hit 'Mainstream' again?

    I have my doubts. KOGaming missed it's chance to capitalize on any success with the Homefront video. And the odds of a high profile review has REALLY went down since then - namely since a lot of people already learned the KOGaming and DSP are the same (not that it's hard to figure out), and beyond clickbait he doesn't have much to draw someone to his videos thanks to leaving the character of DSP behind and not being a very insightful gamer. It's not even that his reviews suck or anything quite like that (oddly enough, I've never thought his reviews were anything too bad), but rather he doesn't have any draw to KOGaming right now.

    Will DSP ever hit 'Mainstream' again?

    Can't blame a Squid for trying. But I know that Phil has outright said he only wants advice if it means not having to do anything Drastic, and as I've said in this very thread, a coat of paint isn't going to save him. But that makes DSPGaming stagnate. Barely 3% of his subscribers watch him because they've seen all he has to offer. Phil's humor and commentary (especially as of late) as become interchangeable. In a lot of his newer LPs, you could take his commentary and edit it into another LP with minimum effort I'd better.

    How does that prove he changes? I fail to see what this has to do with Phil changing something involving his YouTube Career.
