I hope you guys are cool now and stop talking about loving star wars all the time.

The Solo movie will be out soon, so pretty sure that's when the star wars chat will pop back up.

In an attempt to not hurt my soul further, do you guys have any recommendation for old Computer styled youtubers like Kim and LGR? I watched the ZX Specturm homebrew video from Kim and have gone down a wonky little rabbit hole into PAL computers and I have a desperate need to watch more things like the two of them.

The 8-bit Guy is pretty good. He reviews and restores a lot of old systems, and has done several small documentaries.

I guess my current favourite is the 8-bit guy, followed by LGR. I love learning about old computer stuff, seeing as I spent most of the 80's & 90's on mac hardware. I follow a lot of the other reviewers listed above, but I only watch their video's as background noise while doing other things, as I don't really grasp what they talk about most of the time.

It's not Jon Bois, and it's sportsball-focused, but SB Nation made a pretty great documentary series about the NCAA "amateur" sports system: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Qm-P2foSE4

I'll check that out, I've just finished watching SB Nation's rewind series, which was fascinating because I know nothing about US sports and the lore surrounding them.

Speaking of critics that fill a niche, is there a youtube critic that is similar to MovieBob that isn't a CHUD/Eugenics loving idiot? I'm just looking for quick & lite 10 minute reviews, not 30-40 minutes of rambling at a camera that most critics seem to engage in or super in depth analysis (got that covered)

Aww poo poo it was a Nazi thing? Dang I always thought it was just a 'shut up about anime' or 'put away your Amiibos' thing.

Unless you can find some black or Mexican dudes, then everyone can mark out about Dragon Ball Z.

Much like everything else, it was a weeb/nerd thing that the Nazi's stole for their use, thus tainting it forever.

If it hurts their bottom line, they will drop that poo poo idea fast, it wouldnít surprise me if they drop it this week. On bf1, get it, it still has a pretty big player base and you can find the complete edition pretty easy and cheap.

That's probably why they gave themselves the deadline of Dec 17 before smashing the purge button. Leaves enough room to do some impressive backflips.

Vic is totally a normal person, weird that he's from Greensburg of all places which isn't that far from me

"Risembool Ranger", god that's a term I haven't heard in a long time. I used to be involved in an anime con and only the massive distance between us and Vic spared us from his creepy rear end. Didn't stop the local branch of this fan club from trying however.

Seriously it's such a good idea and once you iron out all the links it seems really easily scaleable, it's p much printing money with how needed it turned out to be.

They can add extra services as well, there are a heap of artists on patreon, if you added functionality to handle commissions, it'd be even better for them.

I don't know why they call it a participation trophy. It was always a ribbon.

I actually got a literal participation trophy once when I was a kid. I wasn't athletic enough to earn any of the trophies for being good at anything sport related, but after attending this after school activity group for two years straight the organizers gave me a pity "Thanks for turning up i guess?" trophy because I was the only kid who didn't get anything. Nothing more self esteem destroying than a "You get this because you exist and that's it" trophy.

Valve was never shamed into offering refunds, they got taken to court (in Australia, I think?) over it because other countries have actual consumer protections to speak of.

Why was that old gently caress famous in the first place? He seems like a morrissey situation where heís been grandfathered in to popular culture despite being a oval office, but I donít know who he is.

He created some British comedy shows back in the day, such as Father Ted and the IT Crowd. And he was lovely to trans people in the IT Crowd so all this is no surprise at all.

Another fanfic has since come along and knocked it off its perch by a factor of about ~400,000 words.

While I love reading terrible fanfic, 4.5 million words spread over 443 chapters is way to much. Bless that author however.

So as you imagine, housing is rare and super expensive. They donít just make more plots due to a fear of pissing off players already invested...or some grandfathered things from 1.0. I forget exactly. They did add cheaper apartments, but itís not the same.

Nah, they don't release more plots because the servers might explode from the increased data transfer. Heck, the are releasing more plots in the next patch because they probably verified the new plots won't cause the data center to vanish into a singularity.

Out of curiosity has anyone else had their recommendations tab on youtube bombarded by Kid toy reviews, Peppa Pig videos and Cocomelon preschool television shows? My recommendations tab grabbed them all at random and I think it's part of a marketing push by whatever stakeholders own all these properties, since they all have millions of views and showed up out of nowhere.

Yeah, I've seen this happen on a couple of videos at random, reloading the tab will restore my usual recommendations.

Looks like Doctor Disrespect has started his PR campaign, as a bunch of gaming sites are running stories about how he has no idea whatsoever why Twitch banned him and he hasn't done anything wrong.

It's extremely disappointing to see a bunch of sites just reporting his PR bullshit without any thought.

Has it been reported what he actually has done to earn the ban? So far it's silence from everyone except his "No idea why" PR campaign, so I can see it having a good chance of success.
