Been pretty busy, and really Chris hasn't done much in the way of the videos.
But thanks to info from Marley Hughes, it seems Chris has been pretty active on Facebook. Marley has provided all the screenshots shown in this post.
Back on the 20th, Chris announced retirement... again. I didn't believe him as last time, it was just fishing for complaints. Same with his claim of "semi-retirement" as he was still posting videos (mostly shilling crap but still).
Then on the 22nd, he posted this:
I can understand time, I mean all that wasted effort on green screen effects and sprites and awful bits where you play every character, that has to be a time consuming project. But where does the money come in? You have the games (and you often just emulate them), you have all the equipment, you have all the editing software, you don't hire actors or title card artists or anyone else to help, so where exactly would the money go? Hell, you made a video talking about how you cheap out on green screen, claiming you buy cheap table cloths at Walmart. So clearly the money isn't going to that.
If you're seriously considering crowdfunding, then you better disown the Ebegging Spoof, or else you'll look like a massive hypocrite (go download the video just in case).
But then, I got this, which was apparently posted last night (the 29th):
Okay Chris, if you're going to go this route, you better be fucking explicit in where all the money is going. You have to tell us bit by bit why you need the money to do this. You can't pull a Brianna Wu and just take the money & run. Also, again, disown the the Ebegging Spoof.
Still, it goes to show that once again he was phishing for fan praise. "No don't go Chris, I'll give you money I'll give you games I'll give you my first born". It's an endless cycle. Maybe that's why he won't make a video announcing his retirement? Because he's just going to come back anyway.
But if he really needs money so bad to fund his show (and I still don't get how), why not try Patreon? Well, Marley Hughes was kind enough to ask (as well as ask about GotGame).
Speaking of explaining, if you're not making videos for GotGame, what are you doing? You don't write articles for them, and I'm not sure what else you could do for them. You haven't updated your site in over a month (last post was June 22nd), your amiibo Informer site is dead, what do you contribute?
Well then, it's going to be quite interesting to see the crowdfunding page if it gets off the ground. Just know Chris, you could show up on here.
Don't be a Brianna Wu.
