  1. I think the idea of starting an hour early is smart for Phil but I don't know if losing the hour of gameplay helps since Phil logs in (roughly given the breaks) 5 hours a day besides the weekends. The 10PM-12PM EST window is brutal for a good chunk of international viewers(Which seem like a lot of Phil's backbone along with high school students) and east coast viewers so more often than not, I am just tired to stay up for 2 hours. It all depends on what Phil can and cannot handle, if the extra hour to keep it at 5 hours is too overwhelming than layback and stick with the 4 hours. Me personally, I won't have anyway of catching a stream if you implement this new schedule but I also know I'm just one person and also know I am not apart of the core audience you tend to get (High School students/International viewers). I like the raw gameplay but I also know it's impossible for people who work like myself to digest Phil's content, it has nothing to do with being a common youtuber or not being a core fan. We just don't have the time to watch hours and hours of gameplay, people have maybe 3 or so hours of free time outside of work, transportation and sleep on weekdays. My only fear with Phil's highlight videos is if Phil can take any scenes in his gameplay that poke at DSP I.E. DSP's losses in Street Figher V where he gets mad at the button input or character(s). Would hate to see that stuff get reduced since those type of matches show you the type of youtuber DSP is.

    To basically sum what they said, Phil would send texts 5AM(2AM his time) to Rambo and Rambo would be asleep and to wake up thinking Phil's drunk or that something was up for Phil to do that. Phil would check up on what is happening with them, is everything alright but then would say everyone's been asking about a potential Smark Guys reunion or to do some co-op. Phil would start the conversation by asking how they are but then take it right back into trying to get some co-op done on Phil's channel.

    It's a method used to close threads, sucks the mods haven't caught up to it. When someone makes any thread about being critical against Phil, the usual 4-5 blights of the forum bring up stuff to derail the thread and leave the mods no other choice but to lock the thread. The only way to combat that is to ban/suspend these posters for derailing threads that have some promise of giving useful conversation but that of course won't happen. And this isn't meant to be a knock against the mods, I like quite a few of them and I have had nice conversations with Silentwarrior over Persona 4 or Static Veins about the cheesy Eurovision. Just it's one of the major awful problems with this forum that made me want to not contribute. The only way to combat against these forum ruiners is to ban them or to at least suspend them in the effort to try and have them learn their lesson.

    Phil's the one who has cared more about doing co-ops than discussing anything else in their personal lives, Phil views the 2 as a method to help gain money and to relive the co-op fun since Phil doesn't have anyone else to do it with besides Panda.......and those 2 want Phil to be less about views and more about genuine friendship and fun. I think they are frustrated that all of their hard work has led to Phil gaining more money and feel sort of used in that regard.

    his is a thread with someone (understandably) leaving the forums. I know I left for months because I didn't like what the site has become and who knows if I stay around longer because things don't look all that much better. Phil has mentioned Rambo time after time and did so in a negative light by putting full blame on Rambo/Howard and both of those guys are just trying to clear the air since they've probably been bugged countless times about Phil. Honestly what do those 2 have to gain from lying? I don't get that, just from a beneficial standpoint. Their take on DSP doesn't help or hurt their youtube careers(Which they may not be all that serious about).
  6. I lean heavily toward TIHYDP as well but that's because I work every weekday from 9-5 and get up 5:45 and travel 1 1/2 hours to and from and get home around 7PM. I basically miss all of Phil's 1st stream and have to get up early to miss the 2nd and don't have much time to squeeze in the hours of content Phil puts in every day. I appreciate the mindset Phil has and god bless the people who have the time to squeeze all of those hours in but for me, it just isn't doable or feasible.....which is where the TIHYDP's, the brief recaps of Phil's pre streams posted by other youtubers and specific small stuff like Week In Preview is my only alternative. Small exceptions like the Bloodborne DLC and Crash Bandicoot happen here or there but that's because they are shorter playthroughs. Despite my disagreements on Persona 4 and how it was done, I tried my damnest to catch all of that playthrough but time caught up to me and gave in around the 110 video mark or so before having to rely on TIHYDP on Persona 4 to catch the rest. I like Phil having the uncut footage put on his channel, it's just tough for people that aren't in school to digest this content.
  7. They derail these threads that question anything Phil does on purpose, it's actually a clever ploy by these posters knowing they will get the topic so off topic enough to force the mods to close it down. It's actually brilliant, they use it like a weapon anytime any thought is put forth against DSP in a respectful manner.
  8. That's pure assumption on it being a bait thread. Regardless of who started it, just because the thread starter started a thread......doesn't mean the thread doesn't have merit or can't be continued by other posters. Just because someone is a new account does not mean they are spewing venom. This board grows because of newcomers, much like Phil's Youtube channel. "It's organic viewership" or in this case "Following". Scaring people off like that....that haven't broken the rules destroys this board, which is the exact reason why I left this board for a good 4-5 months or so before coming back. The place became unbearable as it was leaning towards a 1 sided board with no encouragement of disagreement. Shame anyway since this thread will get closed for people going too far off topic. There have been some good posts and I have +1 them(And some others I have not) but I see the usual suspects adding nothing but bashing people who are choosing to share their opinion. These are the same people that discouraged me from posting on this forum, these are the same people that (IMO) add nothing to the board to make it worth posting. To me, they are a blight to a forum's existence, sorry. These people spend more time bashing the detractors than they do talking about Phil's content and channel.
  9. Just finished the entire playthrough, it was maddening to not only see Phil miss some visceral attacks but to go swinging blows face to face with this boss. That's suicidal, regardless of if you can replenish your health or not. Seeing Phil just go blow to blow with this boss was nuts, I don't mean this to come off as judgmental of how he played it too....just Phil's played all of the Souls games to know not to do that because 9/10 times it results in you getting flattened within seconds. Phil also never saw what runes he was wearing too, I don't even remember what 3 he had lol. Maybe he could have switched to better his stamina, his physical defense and HP. Runes are such a game changer, same with the blood gems. Who knows what hidden goodies he had with those to better his weapons, the new saw weapon that he powered up.....didn't put any blood gems(Maybe I am wrong?) into it to make it stronger or to add elemental power to the weapon. I think if he had focused on the blood gems AND Runes he had in store, that preparation may have made it much more manageable with the NPC in play. Sucks Phil never thought of seeing what he had equipped but I guess that's what 7 months of rust does to you.
  10. It is becoming a bad trend but I 100 agree with you. The amount of dropped playthroughs is concerning and it's been happening a lot more than ever. He didn't go into much for Mad Max and rushed through that as well, sucks.
  11. I am level 165 on NG++++(Got the platinum) and yes this boss is ridiculous. I spent about 2 hours trying to solo it and the best I can do is get it to a 1/3 of it's life before Ludwig unleashes that massive light blast attack. Had to "cheat" and use the NPC and won on my 3rd try, NPC died relatively early in the 2nd form so I did a majority of the 2nd form so with help, it isn't that bad of a boss battle. It's just when trying to solo it, it is tough. No boss should have 1 hit KO ability....unless you have the ability to do that too. Feel the same way about the giant watch dog in the chalice dungeons and 2nd Amygdala. Especially when the creatures are huge and have ridiculous hit boxes. Do not get the decision at all in giving Ludwig that charge attack that can 1 shot you if its big body catches a good portion of you, I hated it for the Watchdog and hate it for this. It is frustrating to see Phil have a few visceral attack openings(You can hear the noise) and opt for 2-3 slashes and missing out on the visceral attack AND getting an opening to heal or get another (charged) shot at him. That's one of the biggest things I get out of this after watching Phil vs Ludwig, so many missed chances after staggering the boss.
  12. Maybe DSP will consider the Ludwig boss battle as a possible candidate for Fan Appreciation Day. Maybe call 1 helper each attempt and let them each get a crack at this boss until someone finally does it along with Phil. The password method makes sense, provided maybe some viewers are around Phil's level(I think it is level 15 is the limit?). After that, maybe Phil can resume Bloodborne on a later date, ala January when new gaming releases is pretty dead. I would only hope the helpers would be used just for this boss since Phil's tried every effort to try and beat the boss. Would hate to see the helpers do everything else for Phil after the Ludwig boss. I don't imagine the setup will take long if Phil lucks himself into a very good teammate so it won't take much away from fan appreciation day, provided theres enough interest from the viewers. You would just need to be around level 90-130 to help DSP out.
  13. Yeah this was the only playthrough that I could not wait to see after he made the announcement of playing this DLC and now that he's quit on it, I don't have any further interest in seeing a DSP playthrough....besides the Rock Band one and the Patron's choice, since I am a sucker for platformers. These new games I either have no interest in or don't want to be spoiled myself. Sucks man, was willing to fully watch all of the Bloodborne videos this time around and still will but sucks it got closed down. I did love the showing the controller to the camera and the Michael Jprdan poses that are vintage DSP though. http://cdn1.thecomeback.com/crossoverchronicles/wp-content/uploads/sites/18/2015/08/hqdefault1.jpg
  14. I thought about it but has there been any reason why you've never done a Top 10 Most Anticipated Games of the upcoming year sort of countdown? Especially given how jam packed 2016 is from Nintendo(Star Fox, Pokken Tournament, Zelda?, Fire Emblem), Microsoft(Sea of Thieves, Scalebound, Quantum Break), and Sony(Horizon: Last Dawn, Uncharted 4, Gravity Rush 2, Detroit, The Last Guardian, Ratchet and Clank Reimagine) and companies like EA(Mirrors Edge), Atlus(Persona 5), NIS(Danganronpa 3), From Software(Dark Souls 3), Ubisoft(South Park), Square(FF15), Capcom(Street Fighter V) and surely others, this really seems like quite a year with a bunch of big contenders to maybe do a top 10 games I want to play/can't wait for for 2016. I mean you never know what games get delayed and all but I don't think it is a bad idea.
  15. Defeat Father Cascoigne Defeat Vicar Amelia Defeat Shadows of Ynarnam Defeat Rom the Vacious Spider (Presuming) You just need to beat those 4 and run through the levels of each which took me 2 hours. Granted I am level 160(4th playthrough, got the platinum full solo) but it's really not that bad, especially if you go co-op.
