Before this thread gets started I think we should all take a moment of reflection and look at the last threads wall of shame.



I wonder how much of that is just me demanding Tie Fighter when Jontron was doing Starcade. Good lord how am I on top of the pile.

Several former content producers drafted a Google document called Not So Awesome which detailed various issues they had during their tenure on the site. There is some pretty awful stuff in there particularly regarding Mike Michaud and Rob Walker. Doug is complicit in a lot of it but he's kind of a broke brained dumbass so most of the issues with him are about how incompetent he is as a filmmaker.

They also issued a non apology that said "sorry you feel that way" about all the contributors grievances.

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.

Remember when Doug had a tantrum about Tommy wiseau flagging his The Roomvideo so he made a response video where he Put on a bad wig and yelled in a bad polish accent for twenty minutes? I'm betting their video response will be like that except with Doug playing everyone else.

So they cover up his sexual misconduct, monetize his death and hide the truth from everyone until this all breaks.

Should there be a separate thread for this? This seems big enough to have its own place to live, considering that there are people here who have some connection to these events who will want to be able to talk about things other than this in the coming weeks.

Speculation is probably the worst and most destructive outcome for something like that. His story is his to tell or not. Until then let’s let it be. I feel for him too—he was so young when he started. That seems like a theme with CA poo poo.

Yeah, I worded that poorly. Leave it to the people involved and don't force questions on them (lord knows enough people will be doing just that). If they want to speak up then they will.

I will say gently caress that Buff Midge prick on twitter and whichever goon he is for trying to throw Dan under the bus with that screengrab.

You realize it's not like Doug himself is going to stop making his terrible videos, right? Just because their lovely web 2.0 website has imploded is not going to stop their Youtube channel anytime soon.

I will laugh/cry if this goes to a court case, because Michaud's responses will tank any sort of legal high ground CA think they have. They've got the money to afford lawyers but their utter incompetence handling this issue will bite them in the rear end come a hearing.

Their Episode III video was funny, but once they moved into the OT they really start to drag.
I actually like their OT stuff better just because of how the recontextualize Anakin and Duke's relationship. Plus the music in Last Laser Master is so good.

Oh this CA stuff is not over. Not at all.
The website is dead. We're not done yet but were hitting the denouement. If CA is smart they'll just end but knowing them they'll try to do some drag out Digital Homicide style double down.

Or maybe I just don't want to go through such a miserable reading experience again so I'd like to change the subject for a while. You guys can keep talking about this meltdown but I think I need some time just discussing other content.

Well I was more hoping the discussion would be about Auralnauts in particular but I guess Last Jedi is a good distraction detail as well. Also I'm phone posting but there is a video of Rich Evans predicting Luke's entire motivation in TLJ that came out in November 2015 and he's pretty much dead on the money.

Moviebob also put up a video the other day about how pointless the Roseanne reboot is when shows like Bob's Burgers or King of the Hill already exist to show what life is like for average Americans who might have voted for Trump, since apparently Roseanne's reboot is specifically about her voting for Trump and her family trying to deal with it.

Should have done it Expanse style where their need to outrun the enemy is dictated by how fast they can accelerate before running out of fuel, so the chase starts going faster and faster and faster until it's like the scene in Star Trek Into Darkness where they're trading shots while flying at Warp speed. Only good part of that movie IMO.

I am slowly learning that the people in this thread are generally more empathetic to the people being discussed in this thread that the subforums I am used to (i.e. wrestling and football). I get that I have to learn how to better mesh into the culture here if I want to continue posting, but a mod and top 10 poster attacking a newcomer for not understanding the unstated "decorum" of a thread is a excessive and frankly a little alienating

Lots of content creators post in this thread and we like to have them around and value their input. Reveling in their misery and being a jerk is a good way to piss them off and make them leave. So don't do that. They get enough poo poo on twitter they don't need it coming from us.
