It's going to be a bit slow around here for a while. Why? Chris' computer crashed... again. Expect another long wait people. I'll fall back onto Redux Recaps during this.
Until I get to one, here's some bits of info.
It's been a year since the AVGN uploaded his 100th episode to Gametrailers, meaning it's now free to go on YouTube. With this, the whole "He stole from IG" bullshit has started up again. I'd like to remind you that James took inspiration from an episode of FarfromSubtle's series "Awesome Video Games", a parody of shows from the "Xtreme 90s!" Not to be confused with their current series "Video Games Awesome" where they just play games on a couch. Come on Fraser, I'll forgive your homophobic comments about Ike from Fire Emblem if you start filming Awesome Video Games again.
Though where James likely got permission from FarfromSubtle (they're friends), Bores decided "I should just steal from them, nobody would notice". Oh, but I did. The dancing R.O.B., R.O.B. "accidentally" squishing the professor, the secret evil intentions, the battle at the end. Just because they were less popular than you doesn't mean nobody would notice. Ask LazyWorkCreations and his "fists of fury"
The original Gyromite video was uploaded in five parts between September and November 2007. You can view the whole thing in one part here: http://blip.tv/videogamesawesome/gyromite-3103492
Meanwhile, IG's subscriber count keeps dropping fast. According to Socialblade, Bores has been consistently losing subscribers everyday for the past 10 days. With no signs of stopping. Where did this massive drop come from? I can understand pissed fans leaving after the latest History of Video Games but for it to keep going down after that? Something else is at work here. Likely his mother LadyBuggin777.
I've been told reports that people are getting banned from his channel for the smallest things (corrections, tiny bits of criticism, saying they watch other people, and so on). Either way, if this drop in subscribers keeps going this could have harsh consequences on his channel. Even loss of partnership, the only thing that's protecting him.
If you were banned for leaving a comment that wasn't insulting but merely giving advice or suggestions, please tell me. That is extremely unfair. But make sure to show the comment word-for-word so I know for sure.
Which leads me into the difference between "Good comments and bad comments". A good comment is one that offers suggestions and criticism in a concise manner. A bad comment does that but then adds insults to it. People don't like to be insulted, and if your comment gets deleted it's your own fault. It's not "censorship" if a comment that says "Fuck you faggot I hope you die" gets deleted. It IS censorship if a comment saying "It was too short, it could have used more jokes" or "It's pronounced Portal not Port Hole" gets deleted. And from I'm hearing, people are getting blocked from IG's channel for the latter.
That's it for now.
