Question.

Now that CuriousCat is imploding because it is run by psychopaths-- what is the actual benefit of that site? I know it lets people ask a question and someone to give a public answer buuuut-- how is that different from, say, a forum, or Quote-Tweeting a question and giving an answer?

What actual tools and benefits does CC give to both the people asking the question, and those answering them?

To me it seems like its main use was answering questions with a bigger character limit than Twitter, but without having to make a whole blog post.

It let people anonymously ask stuff that could be publicly answered without a character limit, yeah.

It functions as an AMA that never ends, letting people curate questions and respond intelligently (in theory) and letting users engage with the people they’re fans of without having to shout into the void of Twitch chat or be a Patron.

It’s really unfortunate that these people who ran it suck.

Is Rampage not actually good? I have no intention of going to see it so.

Also I’m really fuckin’ tired of 30+ year old video game nerds acting like everything made before the PS1 was the best thing ever and making best games of all time lists that are mostly old Mario, Zelda, and Pokémon titles. Bob is pretty much squarely in that camp and it’s super obnoxious.

Also the opening to that review and many of his others was needlessly long, he needs to cut down on the cold open poo poo.

The movie is apparently fine, but he felt the need to take the entire review fake laughing at anyone under 25 because of his superior taste. He might not want to admit it, since he didn't like Ready Player One, but he is exactly the kind of self obsessed rear end in a top hat that Ernest Cline was writing for.

Listen, the PS1 is when all the dudebro jocks started liking video games and they became bad! Before they were creative and fun but with the PS1 is when they became trash and pandered to idiots (more like sub-humans who should be prevented from breeding if you ask me) that tried to imitate the greatness of the older stuff. Here, in my new 8 part series of four hour videos I will explain to you all of this.

Do people under 25 not know what Rampage is? I remember playing the N64 game a lot as a kid.

I mean as tiring as it gets, Mario and Zelda did a lot of interesting things and influenced their genres a crazy amount and continue to do so, it'd be kind of dishonest to not have them in some top spots, even if it means most lists keep on ending up with SMB3, OoT/Majora's Mask and Half-Life 2 at the top.

It kind of is but also no they did not, it's another "LET'S MAKE A MOVIE OUT OF BATTLESHIP!" situation.

quote:

ACCUSATION – A few content partners alleged a misogynistic work atmosphere by Channel Awesome.

FACT – Channel Awesome’s current and former female staff, including Tamara Chambers, Rachel Tietz, Aiyanna Wade, and Heather Reusz, have had vastly different experiences than the ones described. We are always trying to improve ourselves both personally and professionally and moving forward we will implement mandatory sensitivity training for all staff to ensure we maintain a culture of respect for all employees.

"You just smeared poo poo on my desk."

"Nu-uh, ask those girls I didn't put poo poo on their desks."

Edit:

quote:

ACCUSATION – Allison Pregler states “not a single person wasn’t miserable.”

FACT – In this video, you’ll find that Allison says that it “was a great production to be a part of. It was a lot of fun to be a part of this and Suburban Knights.”

Did Mike and the others think this was going to be like some sort of smoking gun they found to put the dissent to rest? Like "But you said everything was fine here in this video from years ago. NO TAKE-BACKSIES."

ACCUSATION - Sgt. Edwards claims he was kept in solitary for four years and subjected to crippling torture, resulting in the loss of his right leg.

FACT - Sgt. Edwards clearly says in this video, taking while he was in captivity, that he and his fellow men are treated great, and that his imprisonment is the fault of the Imperialists.

Raging Boll II is in the process of coming about, actually. Boll's gonna beat Alex Jones senseless if he ever gets his hands on his plump, sweaty, red rear end. Also MovieBob loves giant monster movies, of loving course he'd love Rampage.

Like, this is the exact opposite of damage control, but I guess Mike doesn't comprehend empathy or decency.

I guess one silver-lining is that the comments section of that statement is putting them on blast for this.
