Chris dropped a bombshell of an announcement yesterday.
On Facebook, he stated that he's considering retiring from YouTube to focus more on his paranormal crap, claiming that "interesting prospects" have been coming his way.
I have trouble believing either of these things, but let's focus more on his possible retirement.
This could mean anything really.
One: He could be serious.
Views are absolute crap, most people believe he's a joke, or don't even know he still makes videos. His "three videos a week" experiment backfired hard, couldn't even keep up with two. I do have a theory that after the "opening up" video, he got a bunch of new "fans" and he thought they would watch everything he put out. Except he released lazy complacent crap and they all left in droves, leaving only us, the critics, and the few remaining fans.
He kept trying so many new things and nothing worked.
For retro reviews, his thought process was "a lot of people do bad games, I'll fill the niche of bashing classic games!" That backfired immensely.
He tried applying a "crazy" style to various videos, like his movie reviews and IG Neo. People hated these, soooo many dislikes. His Splatoon review in particular got mocked by Cringe Blog and Retsupurae.
And then he started doing all these product reviews, shilling for shit nobody would actually use. This was just sad.
Two: He could be fishing for attention.
He could just be saying this so people could go "No don't go, we want you to keep making videos". The last desperate resort of a falling internet star.
Three: He confused "retirement" with "hiatus" again.
Remember last time he said he retired? Only he suddenly came back with the "three videos a week" promise. We've long established that Chris is an idiot and has a tenuous grasp of the English language (especially if his book is anything to go by). He could have confused the two again.
So, what does this mean for the blog? Of course, I operate on whatever videos Chris puts out. If he releases something worth talking about, I'll be here. If not, well then I'll stop too. No reason to keep going with nothing new to talk about.
The only thing we can do is wait and see.
I do wish there was someone close to Chris I could contact. For someone so public online, he has so few connections.
EDIT: Seems the answer was Number Two. He just posted on Facebook something along the lines of "Thanks for all the comments! Looks like I'm going to stick around". Yeah, he was fishing for attention. Blah.
