It's always funny when someone on twitter is whining that Danny era grumps sucks and they want Jon back and then you go to their profile and 10 times out of 10 they're some dumbass chud.

JT era sucked. Jon's idea of """"humor"""" was just screaming, saying slurs, and screaming slurs. Even when we all thought it was """just a joke""" it wasn't funny. But now that we know those are Jon's sincere beliefs...

The worst thing Jon would do while on Game Grumps was sandbag episodes when he wasn't enjoying them. They uploaded dozens of episodes where Jon starts to slump two minutes into the video because he's not enjoying it, forcing Arin to do all of the heavy lifting. Jon-era Grumps had a number of good moments, but for every high there were ten times as many lows.

e: Well, except for shouting the n-word over and over again, of course.

like his solo channel is relative fantastic(I especially enjoyed his FF7R playthrough) his banter with his basically-wife Paige is adorable, his cat is a screaming trainwreck of a being, and I just wish things hadn't gone so awry with the group as a whole.

Pat may invite it on himself, but I did like he enjoyed FFVIIR and a bunch of his fans were like 'but why it sucks you have permission to hate it you were the chosen one' etc.

A big part of their deal is that they seem to take their growth as performers and comedians really seriously and take acting and writing classes together. They are professionals about being a comedy duo, and you can really see their work pay off. I think they said they went to dialect coaching to work on their funny voices. I feel like Jontron would call that gay and yell that nobody should do it.

Maybe I haven't seen any of the new stuff since I only bother with the highlights, that comes off as a surprise. It sure feels like they've only got one female voice for every character.

It's kind of funny, because I don't think he actually straight up hates that much stuff. I think it was during his RE6 playthrough, which is just straight up undeniable dogshit, that usually when he dumps on something people like it's for funsies and to get a reaction out of them, not because he has strong opinions about the game. Which is a dick move in and of itself, but I don't think he's been the guy who actually hates everything for a long time.

Which would explain him changing his online handle from AngriestPat to Pat Stares At.

I will always like that Pat is absolutely willing to point at his fanbase and go NO YOU'RE WRONG on poo poo like that in no uncertain terms. he's extremely straightforward in that way, for good or ill.

Isn't Paige pals with Carl of Swindon?
the only questionable thing I know of her is her going on cumtown or whatever that podcast is. there was definitely a discussion of her being "lovebombed" by alt-right people in the sbf thread iirc, which was a term I did not know existed until that discussion, and is just so drat sinister. far as I've seen, she has never been hateful or anything. I think there was a part where she said she didn't want to just suddenly sever from people she'd known for a while, which, I get it. my mom has been friends with this one lady who has gone full blown fox news ultraracist grandma, etc for a while now and I've been like "you've gotta stop talking to her, she's awful" but mom's just like "I've known her forever, we just don't talk about politics anymore". I don't like that mentality, but I can at least understand it, you were friends before you discovered their ugly side, and you try to ignore that ugly side and continue like nothing is wrong. It's not good, but I get it.

There was also the bit about Pat saying a developer had the right to change stuff based on the region of release (and was about removing something gross from a Japanese game that was released in the States, I think) and just flatly telling 'no' to Woolie who kept asking 'but is censorship?' I think that's the actual maddest I've seen his fanbase.

She's friends with Dick Masterson and his group who are all rooted deep in that early 2000s kind of edgy irony humor that's functionally interchangable with modern sincere alt-right poo poo. She was invited onto the Ralph Retort Killstream through them. I don't remember her being friend with Sargon.

Also yeah Paige sucks and she put me off watching a lot of Pat and her own stuff when she went onto some bigots podcast, then pulled "B-BUT I'M A BI WOMAN (In a longstanding straight relationship) AND THEY WERE NICE TO ME! CONCERN TROLLING!" type nonsense when people said that the podcast/people on it she was hanging around with are pieces of poo poo, then got back pats from the friendly twitter nazis because those mean queers were acting up again.

yea JT, aside from being a lovely guy, was also just really bad at comedy. Like, yea he'd just shut down if not instantly engaged, meaning the episode just became Arin doing all he could while Jon went 'uh huh'. At least now when there's a boring and unfunny game Danny finds something that reminds him of an album he likes or Arin just gives someone a funny voice and makes Danny giggle about it.

Danny is a legitimately charming guy and his banter with arin even over just the most boring poo poo is somehow listenable.

Hey, I'm not trying to start poo poo or anything, and I'm sure you didn't mean anything by this but yeah, the implication of this bit here is a little yikes. Just because a bisexual person is in a straight relationship doesn't mean they're any less bi. I'm not defending her using her bisexuality as a shield. She sucks. But I know alot of bi people who put up with so much biphobia and told they "aren't actually bi/queer" because they're in a straight relationship.

I meant more that chuds are easily willing to mentally paper over a bi lady who's been attached to a guy as long as they've known her as 'straight anyway' or something, it's like yeah those bigots were nice to you Paige, you're a pretty cis white lady in a "normal" relationship, especially for such a helpful stooge bonus when Paige already had a bunch of fans who are in the 'angry vidya boys' camp via Pat and otherwise, who are often super easy to turn onto "the evil essjays and PC people and the media" trash like they were pushing in the podcasts she was going on and trying to make excuses for. I didn't mean for it to be read as "SHE AIN'T EVEN GAY ANYWAY" but more what I've clarified, that chuds likely won't give a poo poo if you're bi if they can easily minimize that and profit.

I phrase things badly because I have bad brains that are getting worse all the time, if I say something poorly, it's likely to never be intentional but because it was working off my own idiot thought process I didn't convey.

The only people dumber than JT are his stans who still defend him to this day, endlessly screaming "NO THEY TOOK HIM OUT OF CONTEXT! THE SJWS ARE TRYING TO SMEAR HIM LIKE THEY DID TO PEWDIEPIE BECAUSE OF CANCEL CULTURE" or some brain worm poo poo like that.

Also that yeah, I liked their story together, adult semi-Wolverine Sherry is neat and Jake is the secret good boy. They're also very cute together.

I also wish we could ever get Sheva in another game too, but that probably won't happen until the RE5make.

But also just yeah sorry thread that I ever come off lovely without meaning to, my ability to talk is often worse than my typing by this point, feel like I'm perpetually scatterbrained a lot of the time and medicine mostly stopped helping.
