    I'm done.

    Not gonna be posting on the forums anymore. The community has become a husk of what it once was, and the newest revelations about Phil (which I won't mention here) was the icing on the cake for me. Been a part of the community for 5+ years, but there's nothing left for me here anymore. Shout-out to Static, MoA, Beechey, Hazz3r, Lemon, Michael, Raiden, Slyspy, Cless, Cooper, Icured, StealthBlade, Revan, Drilbit and others for once being part of a great community. I apologize if I forgot anyone. See you around.
  2. There's a big difference between the people who actually want to help Phil improve his channel to regain some sort of growth, and the people who just want to see it all come crashing down. I find it baffling that some of his most adamant fans - you included - are so quick to shoot down any form of feedback that go against the status quo. The status quo doesn't work anymore, even Phil himself has admitted it at this point. The fact is that Phil's views have been consistently declining for years now. Fans of his are not "crying" about the lack of edited content or the lack of variety, they're gi
  3. Plenty of people on Youtube do animated series by themselves. Egoraptor built his fanbase on making animated videos. Main difference between DSP and most other very popular Youtubers. DSP is all about quantity, most others are about quality. DSP "complains" (read: mentions it on Twitter) when he edits for a couple of hours; many Youtubers put 10+ hours into one video.
  4. Jeff Gerstmann hasn't admitted to anything like that, the fuck are you on about? He left Gamespot because the management didn't know what the fuck they were doing; in other words, his dismissal was an abnormality, not the norm. Everyone else has reiterated this for years now. Also, Zoey Quinn didn't sleep with anyone reviewing her game. She slept with someone who mentioned her game once in a random article. It's shit like this that keeps this weird assumption that reviewers are paid off going. Baseless speculation based off hearsay.
  5. Really? I thought it was laughably bad. Like I couldn't believe this is what Gearbox had been working on for so long.
  6. The two games aren't even similar. Battleborn is basically a MOBA, whereas Overwatch is similar to TF2.
  7. Yep. The PC version will always look better, if you got a rig powerful enough. This is nothing like Watch Dogs, which looked inferior on every platform compared to the E3 footage. The consoles are just very underpowered. Usually new consoles were really pushing PCs to their limits (games such as MGS2 and Gears of War required insane PCs to run properly), but these new consoles are performing worse than $650 PCs, which is absurd when you consider the lower cost of gaming on a PC when it comes to games etc. Case in point, I just pre-ordered Fallout 4 for $40. I haven't paid $60 for a game i
  8. To add to this, just to make it clear. It was me, and only me who did some dumb shit after we stepped down. I tried to ban Phil's account, thinking surely that wouldn't be possible, yet it was. Problem is, this was done after everyone else had been stripped of power, and since I never had the power to unban people (being a mod, not an admin), I couldn't rectify the mistake and there was no one else to do it. All the porn and hentai shit wasn't posted by me; but I didn't remove it either, and found it quite funny. I apologized for this later on, and I know it was retarded. Ironically, most of i
  9. Personally, I'm really not a fan of the "Views are decreasing and no one can give me a reason why" attitude. Why is it our responsibility to analyze your business' performance? Wut? Asking for more donations when general interest in your content is decreasing is a short-term solution. That's fine if you want to squeeze the last drop out of the viewerbase before retiring from doing full-time Youtube, but that's obviously not what you want to do. You say tons have changed. What exactly? It might look like it on your end, but look at it from the viewer PoV: Patreon was a means for you to play the
  10. I don't understand why he plays games that he has absolutely zero interest in. It's been evident for years that he doesn't like the Halo franchise. His hatred towards Halo: ODST - one of the most well-liked Halo games among Halo fans - is well known. Why even bother? "Exposing" the game by running past enemies is ridiculous. You can do that in almost every single game out there.
  11. A company contracted to produce weapons, vehicles and the likes for the army.
  12. http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2015/oct/16/drone-documents-whistleblower-edward-snowden-daniel-ellsberg https://theintercept.com/drone-papers It corresponds with the reporting done in Yemen by independent journalists. They've been reporting these numbers for years, albeit anecdotally, but they now have the numbers to prove what the civilian population has been saying.
  13. Well.. http://www.nytimes.com/2015/06/25/us/tally-of-attacks-in-us-challenges-perceptions-of-top-terror-threat.html?_r=0 http://www.npr.org/2015/06/24/417192057/right-wing-extremists-more-dangerous-than-islamic-terrorists-in-u-s You just don't hear about it, mainly because there's nothing to be gained monetarily from people hearing it. Fear mongering about foreign threats = more wars = more money in the pockets of defense contractors and the weapon industry. Also, Bill Maher is a moron. His whole schtick is sounding smart and well-informed to morons through well-crafted one-liners and argumen
  14. Tragic news. Haven't always agreed with him but his pro-consumer stance has been admirable in a media that is so focused on clicks/views/buys. He's also by far the best PC focused critic out there. Hopefully his relative young age means he can keep going for much longer than the average. I've heard of people living 10+ years with that type of cancer.
