yeah when both abby and ben quit I was really wondering wtf

those 2 were major losses, they are funny as poo poo and they just quit to do......nothing?

going from the way he talked about it after the fact, Ben quit mainly because of the constant unrelenting hostility from the community, and now he probably won't be doing on-camera content ever again. I wouldn't be surprised if Abby quit for basically the same reason

that's what you have to do if your audience is Gamers

i listened to an interview on the old bernie 2020 campaign (rip) podcast that brianna joy gray did when they actually did an episode about leftwing people in Gamer culture online in the context of a pushback against the prevailing winds of the gamer to gamergate to pepe pipeline and he was frank that he was playing a character with an insanely inflated ego but is also the biggest Game Critic "content creator" who accurately lays the blame for games sucking at the feet of capitalism

they're also (as far as i know) one of the only industry people with a large platform who regularly and vociferously calls out cases of sexual abuse/harassment/bigotry, lovely labor conditions and all the personal failings of the terrible lovely management in game companies, and takes a lot of poo poo because of it. i mean find another known gaming industry entity with a million youtube followers who isn't completely bent over and open for whatever bullshit the industry chucks them, especially if its freebies or linkbacks for clout. best case scenario is usually personalities who "don't want to get involved with all that Politics stuff"

Nice fake spoilers, idiot.


Kim wasn't even real he was just a delusion your brain created to hold all the memories you didn't want. That's why he "dies" at the exact moment you remember your address. Evrart's heart attack is completely unrelated.
