Yes, I know that FROM were inspired by Berserk for a lot of things. Giving Berserk credit for one of the most generic and simple concepts imaginable is giving it a bit too much undue praise.

New Night Mind video that's a little bit more different. It's not a review or explanation thing; instead, it's Nick reflecting on the old Marble Hornets stuff he did among some other stuff. It's a pretty neat idea that lets you see behind the curtain somewhat.

Odd coincidence. I just finished a rewatch of most of that last week. Still haven't watched Ultima 9 stuff because it gets... uncomfortably awkward and bad, but that's all. At least the series does make me want to give some of the pre-IV Ultimas a go sometime.

I started following TSV after Reignbot covered it

I remembered her being mentioned in Nick's Daisy Brown video, so I went to give it a look at for a comparison and I sorta get why but I didn't really like that she just read out the tweets in chronological order and.... that's it, really (discounting the mini-Q&A afterwards). It's a good way to get people interested and caught up without skimming slower parts or needing to sit down afterwards to read it yourself, at least.

So, I watched a few more and I think they were way better than the TSV one in both the way the content is displayed and, like, actual analysis and thought.

Now, now, let's be fair. It was 14 kids.

Since the other 3 were adults that makes someone being mad at video game framerates totally equivalent.

I didn't recognise the name of the film at all, but 5 seconds in as soon as I heard the name "Alvin Flang" I immediately remembered this thing from one of Ralph's videos. I think it came up in an older version of this thread, even.

Every day on the way to, and from, work I pass by a small game store that runs weekly tabletop stuff. A couple of times the idiot part of my brain has told me to at least go check it out, how bad could it be? The sensible part of my brain then smacks it and reminds me that it's a small store that is basically in an alley. Probably definitely don't wanna do that.

It was in one of her older videos (the Hercules one, which I finally just watched earlier today) but Lindsey raised a few examples when talking about Chosen One narratives. Hunger Games and Lord of the Rings were two of the examples she used, even.

Do people really buy another copy of the game just to get a single legendary? That's loving insanity.

At least one guy on Youtube does and has a series of videos about it for each gen (though only up to Diamond/Pearl/Plat right now) that highlights how dumb the system is and accidentally shows just how blatant a money tactic it is.

It is more focused on how to do it on your own with minimal trading, just to really drive in how bad a system it is.

Youtube kept popping this up in my recommendations for some reason and I don't think it's been posted in this thread yet. It's a long watch (2 hours), and the video title intentionally copies what Hbomb names some of his long-form critiques but:

Steven Universe Is Garbage And Here's Why

Personally, I've never really watched Steven Universe since even the people who like it make it sound really scattershot and boring, so this was genuinely interesting and fascinating to see just how much of a mess it really is. On like every single level possible, really.

I'm not watching this video yet because I want to watch the show first, but I did see "The Legend of Korra Is Garbage and Here's Why" by the same creator. On one hand, they touched on a lot of what made Korra a frustrating watch, but on the other, they go into it with a lot of baffling base assumptions, the greatest of which being that animation is for kids and anyone who tries to make adult animation is doing so because they're insecure.

That... that is a really weird take. Like, there's an offhand mention of something similar in the SU video nearish the end, but I took it to be more "cartoons can be made just for kids and that's not a bad thing" and not "all cartoons are for kids only stop pretending otherwise."

And, I did notice that video but didn't watch it myself. Korra's something I absolutely still need to get around to watching at some point... but I also need to finish TLA first, though.

Not even a minute in yet and I'm super glad this exists. More channels need to celebrate Hallobreen.
