I'm getting my obsessive chip speculation from Moores Law is Dead now. He talks like a normal person which is rare for some reason.

Steve ripping into Stadia is so thoroughly enjoyable, the man has a level of integrity that makes him stand out so well.

That and his glorious mane.

Scrapyard wars is fun to skim thru but it is pretty dull watching dudes scroll classifieds. At least Kyle isnít on this one. Actually, speaking of LTT staff Iím pretty impressed with Colton. Heís leading the charge on getting their setups, has a sick house in the woods and can cut down trees and is apparently the best gamer. I thought he was just an odd small weird guy to make Linus look tall and normal. Colton is kinda cool.

Teams are definitely stacked the other side tho. Alex / Jake / Luke are all powerhouses.

I'm definitely getting more disappointed with GN & Steve now. I opened up the "show notes" article here: https://www.gamersnexus.net/news-pc...s-linux-laptops and then clicked play. It's basically 99% of the entire show script minus the few seconds of him actually talking from the top of his head and own knowledge.

I really hope he starts shifting to, you know, talking through his own knowledge rather than the incredibly dry reading of written articles almost word-for-word.

The best parts of GN is when Steve goes off script or at least doesnít do a dry reading and you see his inherent knowledge and sense of humour come through. I want more of that.

GN videos for me are a podcast to be put on in the background. I just don't think they have enough bandwidth in terms of creative people (writing, editing, etc) to put out unscripted content and still do all the other things they do.

GN is pretty good when he collaborates with other channels. I think his videos can be more entertaining if they were more conversational. He could talk to the camera guy maybe?

Yeah. I feel like it wasn't always this bad, but now, if I want semi-boring PC videos that might teach me something, I just watch Paul. Sure, he looks like Colin Meloy's little brother and his speaking style is pretty ramble-y, but I never get the urge to say "just show me that paper you're reading off and I'll be good, thanks." I appreciate Steve's asides (the ones in the Stadia video were the best part), but generally not enough to soldier through the rest of the monotone stuff.

I can't fathom the brain that would choose Paul's Hardware over the education afforded by Clint over at LGR.

I mean, admittedly it's useless information from 20 years ago, but hot drat if he doesn't have the most soothing voice.

It's true, I would not describe Paul's voice as soothing. The information is just slightly more relevant.

Unbox Therapy continuing to dig holes for themselves:

TLDW: Pitaka sends UT a phone case for review, UT launches his own "original" phone case (at like $45 a pop), and then tries to hide the fact he tried to contact Pitaka to collaborate, but Pitaka CEO says "lol no you didn't".

This guy also held a giveaway where he said he was giving away a truck full of iPhones, he only did like 12 and then never spoke about it again. He also received a Stadia from Google and promised to have an actual review on its performance but it's been weeks and he hasn't said anything about it, and likely never will.

This guy is just bad.

Jesus christ everything about that video is uncomfortable, from the hairless guy justifying this equipment without saying anything worthwhile to Linus' usual bombardment of advertising in video and video description, I'd be happier if I saw this at 4am between katana and cut price jewelry, not a childrens video website.

Only worthwhile thing is going to be people dubbing songs over the video where Linus cries.

Speaking of listening on headphones, something I wonder on their videos, especially ones with Linus, why does the audio sound all weird and choppy? I presume it's hard to notice or they would have done something about it. Is it an audio compressor they are using? Or are they auto-tuning Linus's voice?
