Oh hey, apparently my new Tablet came in on friday but just found it.

I prefer smaller tablets, my old one was 8" so this one's a big bigger. The SD card slot is also a pain to remove.

I'll get used to it, basically going to turn everything off and uninstall everything. Get that maximum battery life.

So i just watched Phil's Final Fantasy 15 video. Does Phil hate Final Fantasy or does he just not do much research when he makes these types of videos? "There's been a lot of drop off in quality

The sad part about this post is that people like you actually believe it. You've deluded yourself into thinking that's how my mind works. Maybe when I first started on YouTube and didn't "get it," but

​First troll account, not even mad.

Big spoils for Sekiro on the net, so beware if you're getting it next weekend. I'm sure I'll be marathoning it for a few nights.

Some of the bosses are pretty rad, definitely just Bloodborne/Soulslike.

There's a mechanic being introduced called Dragonrot that basically just sounds like they are bringing back World Tendency from Demon souls.

I don't see whats the big hype about this game. Its Dark Souls again. Outside of that shit VR game they haven't stopped making Dark Souls games in 6 years. Dark Souls, Dark Souls 2, Bloodbourne, Dark Souls 3, now this. The market is starting to get saturated. 

This game doesn't look that great, and with Ghost of Tsushima around the corner, as for samurai games, this can easily be passed.

I looked at gameplay. Phil is planning on this to be the most important release of his career with his financial problems and with Dark Souls-esque games attracting his biggest audiences. Though im positive he isnt going to like this game. Ive heard people who played say the fights will always be unfair so you have to strategize and not gun-ho it, which is not Phil's playstyle. I've heard stealth is necessary, which Phil isn't really good at. And the game is less linear and more open world based, which means Phil can't simply just run past enemies. We'll see.

Looks like kitty is planning to game on that thing.:biggrin:

Same here. I prefer smaller tablets too. And the one I'm using right now, is a samsung, which is about 7 inches. But one thing I like about tablets, is that emulators, always seem to run better on them. And I like the screen size too. 

Yeah. That SD card slot thing.:tongue:

So you're going to uninstall those included apps? I don't blame ya dude. Even though, they kinda come in handy, on my tablet.

How to Turn the Wii U GamePad Screen Off

  • From the Wii U Menu, press the HOME Button.
  • Tap "Controller Settings" on the left.
  • Underneath the Wii U GamePad Settings tap "Display Off."
  • Tap "Display Off" again to confirm.
  • Press any button on the Wii U GamePad to turn the display back on.

So the guy telling him to press the power button was obviously trolling.

It appears you were too hasty when you made that allegation.

Well it says it only works when using Wii menu or software but when playing WiiU games it will turn off the console.

It's a common joke. The comment said "hold down power button and choose to turn off gamepad screen". Maybe he just mixed up power and home button.

Here, have a shitty meme edit

 Just watched Phil's recent video. How come everytime he does these fundraisers, there is always something else counter intuitive to him getting out of debt is happening? Last year when he was on the verge of losing his house due to taxes he got the money and immediately moved his girlfriend in and brought her all this stuff to get settled. This year its a trip to Connecticut which each passing day seems like its less about visiting his parents and more about taking Kat to all the places he took his ex- girlfriend.

Then he say's if he moves into apartment, the internet will be shared so the quality of his streams will suffer. What? Never heard of paying for an internet service and it gets shared with all the other neighbors. Last time I checked, I can have Xfinity and my neighbor can have AT&T. Theres nothing shared about it unless you deliberately make your wifi unpassworded. Plenty of streamers bigger than Phil have no problems and live in an apartment.

He goes into saying he wont have an office to set up his stuff up like the soundproofing. First of all, that soundproofing configuration he has does nothing. I cant count how many times Ive heard ambient noises around the room or Phil's toilet being flushed. Plus its kind of pointless to have quality sound when you're burping and crushing water bottles into the mic. Second, Phil is in a spare bedroom and calling it an office. You could do the same thing in an apartment. 

Lastly, he say's if he sells the house and moves it will be time consuming and take away from his streams. He literally moved across the country and had no problems back then, though he wasn't streaming, there are plenty of ways to work out getting content to his fans. Just have to be creative. Now its too difficult to move across town?

All the reasons he brought up seem futile. I understand selling his house would be a huge blow to his ego, but he's not the first person to downsize his lifestyle because a change in finances. Plus, the main reason his taxes are much higher because he made more money. Whats going to happen this time next year? Not to mention there has been no hard evidence, paperwork, or even a solid number of any of his tax problems. Just using last years fundraiser's "success" as an example, the only thing I know is he got the money in January, moved Kat in Febuary, asked for more money in March and April, then sometime last fall he said he still used $10,000 in credit to pay his taxes. Real shaky.

I'll support by just watching but there's too many plot holes to invest my hard earned money to this.

Or course when they are already there he wants to make use of the time and show her places. It's understandable they want to make a little vacation out of it. No need to make a big deal out of it.

People say all the time how shitty American Internet is. And when he moves into a rented apartment he has to use their lines and provider.

The foam is against echo from the wall not about soundproofing.

Since he works from home he could be able to write off a bunch of living expenses from taxes.

It's shared in the sense that most/all people living in the complex have shared bandwidth. If there isn't enough bandwidth and/or too many people are eating up too much at any particular moment, it will slow down for everyone for a time. 

That said, you can have good internet in an apartment. I used to stream/upload from an apartment and it was fine. I'd imagine it can vary greatly from complex to complex.

You can still do sound treatment (cutting out echoes, etc) in an apartment with the panels he's using now. Sound proofing would be a good bit more difficult I'd imagine and should only be necessary if he was somewhere there was a lot of outside noise which is very possible in an apartment. Unless his neighbors are very noisy all the time, the overall sound quality change would be unnoticeable by the vast majority of his audience.

I dont have a problem with him visiting other places. I have a problem with the trips whole narrative changing. Go back and look at the Christmas video where he is talking about his parents. He said his dad has a heart condition and can barely move while his mother is going through some things too. Then come to find out they are working. Unless they are from Krypton, I don't see how work is possible under those conditions. So somewhere there is some misinformation.

Im in America, many of the worlds top streamers are in America. As long as you have a reputable ISP, the internet is fine. Apartments usually have options when it comes to ISPs, and Phil is in Seattle, one of the most tech forward cities outside of Silicon Valley. Trust me, internet is not that big of problem as Phil is making it out to be.

Making it pointless right? There are soundproofing options for Apartments. As I said it really doesn't matter when you're crushing waterbottles into the mic.

And he still can't pay them. Sell the house, lower your price of living. He'll be alright.

Even if this is true, what does it matter to DSP? He got big on Youtube in an apartment. He was streaming fine back then. Nobody comes to DSP for the quality, they come for the entertainment. As long as he's entertaining and the game is watchable, it doesnt matter.

All utterly pointless if you regularly crush waterbottles into the mic anyways.

@TrashCanJuice lol just turn off your brain :biggrin:

I know alot of fans do exactly this. They just watch the content and enjoy Phil's stream while avoiding his talks about money and problems. But its gotten to the point where every single stream is about money and its unavoidable. 

I wish I could turn off my brain, but what you're asking is for me to be purposely stupid. That I cannot.
