I’m not sure what I just saw, but I loved every moment of it.
Everything about this is awful
I’m too sleep deprived for this Robspawn. If I come back tomorrow and find out that this is real I’m going to be very cross indeed.
Well, apparently it’s real, and apparently watching this in a quiet library is a stupid thing to do because I’m giggling like a moron.
I want to get off Mr. Catsman’s wild gameshow.
Is this one off Rob’s weird fantasy?
This better be a weekly thing from now on Cats, this shit is cray cray.
That was the best fucking thing ever. There better be more than one episode.
What is this and how can I get involved?
Don’t worry Catsman, Xbox Live Indie games still lets you buy YDAB.
I still don’t know what this or how it got published.
This is fucking fantastic, please continue making those.
I’ll be honest. I love this shit. It made me laugh so hard, I lost my voice for a day. But is this really the kind of content that Gather Your Party really wants to be posting? I understand that the site has had a partnership with Gentlemen’s Lunchtime Association since launch, but this still caught me off guard a little.
You guys have had some fun stuff before like the E3 videos (the drinking game and Microsoft presentation review ones), but those were closely crafted to be comedic from the beginning. This? This just feels stupid. Funny stupid, but none the less, not something I expect to see on a site that dedicates itself to giving detailed analysis of video games.
Let me be clear. I don’t want this to stop. Like I said; I love this shit. I just think it sends the wrong message when it’s posted on GYP.
Well, the E3 video was some rather sharp satire whereas this is just adult swim type stupid.
GYP2 is actually going to have a ‘humour’ category built into it from day 1. The truth of the matter is, a lot of our contributors are just dying to write funny things. Why do you think that there were more posts on April 1 than on any other day of the year?
I don’t think that humours content is going to detract (or has detracted, I should say) from the serious content at all. If I hadn’t been doing this I’d have just been sitting here twiddling my thumbs. In fact, I think I put up a serious journalistic Machine for Pigs review just last week!
Or maybe I’m just destroying the integrity of the site with stupid videos. Whatever. If I go down I’m taking you all with me!
Well, I mean, this is a site run by volunteers. Take it in whatever direction you guys want it to go in. I don’t think it’s right to let the viewership dictate what you can and can not post. I was just surprised to see something that felt like a personal blog post on here, so I thought that I’d give my 2 cents.
I guess I shouldn’t be that surprised though. GYP feels like it’s changed some in the past few months. I just don’t get that vibe that I used to that made it feel professional. Maybe that’s because of the slow posting, or maybe it’s because of some other thing that I can’t quite put my finger on. Oh well. I don’t really think that I’m part of the intended audience anymore, so you guys can probably just disregard my thoughts.
I don’t really think that’s a fair comment at all. We have a lot of high-brow gaming content posted quite frequently and that isn’t going to change any time soon. We’ve also had satire and humour from the beginning and that’s also not going anywhere.
I agree that posting has been slow in the last week. No idea why, maybe something to do with the start of the academic year?
I never said that the site was going to stop posting analytical content. I just don’t think that stuff like this is posted enough to make it feel like a regular thing here. That’s why it would feel like a new thing if you posted satire/humor more regularly.
Also, this kind of humor is, to me at least, incredibly different from the humor that’s been posted before. I’m sorry, but this really does feel like a personal blog post. If you disagree, that’s you. I’m not trying to antagonize here.
If I could I would pay you actual dollars to make this a weekly series.
