I watched some of the JonTron era videos, and they seemed pretty fun. I prefer the Super Best Friends, though. They're more laid back, comfy, have better chemistry together and most of the humor comes more naturally, compared to GG, which is basically "hey now it's time to be funny, guys". From what I've seen, today GG is comparable to trash like Funhaus, only more podcasty. I guess the only reason to watch them now is if you're a fan of them as people or whatever, and not their commentary quality.
>>1208536 But Funhaus is the embodiment of trash. Clickbait titles, short, "fun packed" videos for ADHD kids who can't watch a proper LP, tired and overused gimmicks, and to top it all, they actually look at fucking porn, censure it, film it, and put it up on their video game channel about video games.
They're not even trying anymore. It's 90% about the webcam and their forced sex jokes, and 10% about the actual games they play, which by the way, is always the same. Even if they play a good game, they still shit on it just for material for the channel, so they don't have to spend another 30 minutes recording because they're lazy fucks who don't give a shit about fans and quality.
Also their podcast is utterly terrible and pointless, and it's only popular because they are.
I used to watch them until about 8-9 months ago when they started playing bad flash games unironically and looking at actual porn. I generally don't care about youtubers making easy money out of doing shit, but Funhaus is ridiculous about it. It's so obvious they don't give a fuck and it's just a job for them, that it hurts.
Sure, you're allowed to like them if you just want to see trashy content, you like their humor style and you just don't care about actual quality, but don't deny they're not vile. They're up there with Markiplier, Pewdiepie, jacksepticeye and all those. GameGrumps is gold compared to them, and I don't even like GG.
I liked table flip until the past maybe 6 episodes. They have sucked.
If you stop and think about the money they are making for the shit they are doing, it can get infuriating. Probably half of trash was just fucking around on /b/ when all the big youtube channels first started; it should have been us.
Arin and Ross constantly have to battle for who gets the most attention because "muh ADHD". If Danny and Brian left, the show would devolve into poop jokes for the kiddies even further than it already has.
>>1200699 After JonTron left it became a cash grab, the only reason why Arin kept on doing it was because it was easy, lazy money.The fact they replaced JonTron means that GameGrumps has become a brand, when Arin decides to leave he will be replaced and the program will continue. The show itself has no innovation, nothing has changed or improved (maybe the production value) and the humour seems to have digressed into something "safe" to appease the audience. A good minute of some game grumps episodes are arin making screeching noises into the mic wjile danny pretends to laugh.
That's a weirdly inspirational poster. You can hang that on your wall, and it'd be just as good at inspiring an artist as a Samurai Pizza Cats cell. It reminds me to get a haircut and not buy feminine anime t-shirts.
>>1210827 i personally like superbestfriendsplay more than GG but i like them both so i was happy with it, but its understandable if you don't like them they have a style of humor that isn't for everybody.
>>1288344 No he's not you dumb faglord. He hasn't released an animation in how many years? Pure LP now.
>>1288303 Yeah, /lgbt/ has had a three thread run on it gathering on the evidence. I am absolutely convinced. That dude needs to come out publicly so he can become she, it's painfully clear that the whole staff knows.
I think that's why Jontron jumped ship, too. They split over an "argument" about something that "couldn't be changed" and Jon's on record getting grossed out hard by trannies.
>>1288303 https://a.pomf.cat/rprhza.webm (thinks he's gonna look great in makeup, looks in the mirror and realises he doesn't, clearly has a breakdown they cut away from so he can regain composure, I can relate so fucking hard to his reaction as a degenerate tranny myself) https://a.pomf.cat/bgxrws.webm https://a.pomf.cat/cmuama.webm https://twitter.com/egoraptor/status/691850218715922434 (website open on the screen is a popular womens' footwear site, justfab.com) https://youtu.be/DYmavvXvfhA (8:58 onwards) https://youtu.be/hRtLDQVHIEc (4:05 onwards)
It's so fucking obvious, why the fuck didn't he come out when he still looked like pic related instead of the huge repression-bearded man he his now?!
>>1289586 >can relate so fucking hard to his reaction as a degenerate tranny myself you know, I'm a closeted trans but I perused lifting weights instead of becoming a degenerate, I dunno if I'm happier but at least people wont look at me like a freak
>>1289800 It looks true from all the evidence and just knowing arin from online. It's cool if he's trans but really sad because there's so much repression there even when people ask him point blank. Like my trans friends mostly knew since they were little kids and fuck, if you start the hormones at Arin's age, you don't always have a chance.
>>1289130 he makes his entire living off of youtube game videos. he's a shit tier voice actor but would do that miles before animating again. whatever's easiest.
he's in what, max 2 youtubes a day? 10 min x 2 x 7 days. 2 hours 20 minutes of work a week and constantly complains how fucking busy and exhausted they are. boo hoo.
there are rumors that they don't even play their own games anymore and just record a podcast/ exaggerated reactions over the footage. That's why the reactions and commentary have gotten so bad since danny joined, beside the fact that danny doesn't like games in general.
>>1290509 no what I mean is of course SOMEONE at grumps plays the games. they have an INTERN for cripes sake, along with other unneeded staff.
ever notice how aaron can suddenly be competent and blow through a tough game like Ninja Gaiden? Or suck at a game he says he plays all the time at home like bloodborne? (r1 spam esp. how do you not know how to use other better attacks?)
>>1289586 Huh. He doesn't even look bad with makeup on. Maybe he's just really self conscious or had some emotional overload or something, since he had to face all of it suddenly and in front of a camera. Plus, why would he have different expectations? He most likely put makeup on a bunch of times before so he would know what he looks like.
But yeah, it's pretty sad when you think about it, especially since now he's fucking married.
>>1213566 But that's wrong, faggot. Swap Ross and Arin. Arin's fucking horrible. His entire sense of humor is just shouting the thing his partner just said except louder. He's also psuedo-intellectual as fuck. Ross has his moments and is pretty damn intelligent.
Jon was also really bad on Game Grumps at times. Way more obnoxious and unfunny than Ross, and he was also the reason why they never finished games. Dan > Jon overall.
eh, it's overrated. they can't keep games interesting at all these days, and starting off they played a lot of obscure cartridge games that would have gotten boring way faster.
I agree on Ross. I think the people that hate on him don't get what he's going for. A lot of his humor is based on shitting on the situation around him. He fucked with "timid virgin Danny" when Steamtrain started just because he could see the guy was uncomfortable and hadn't opened up yet (another example is how Danny reacted to Arin's gay jokes early on, was not receptive at all).
So if Arin and Suzy broke up, and Arin only had his own personal happiness to concern himself with, he'd probably become one of those over-compensatory transsexuals who go full-on moe~, thus bringing the quality of Game Grumps down to post-shit levels?
I rather like them. But I do not see what the hype is about Jon. He's just not very engaging for me and I like Dan's calmer tone juxtaposing Arin's fury screeches far more than two hairy men screaming at each other over video games. Arin's thing with being women is a little weird. But eh, everyone's got their thing. Oh and where's more fucking pokémon art academy?
>>1293636 Yeah, but Jon definitely had his moments. Mary Kate & Ashley, Sonic '06, World Rally Championship (the one where he smashes a GameBoy box), and a few others that escape me right now.
That said, Danny is a lot more enjoyable as a Grump, not just because he's funny, but also shares a lot of his stories (the lesbians in Super Mario Sunshine, his battle with depression in Wind Waker HD, his time at the Harley Davidson place, anytime he brings up his pot-smoking days, etc.) and usually just goes with whatever Arin's doing.
Jon acted like Arin's annoying yet best friend, but Danny acts more like a cooler older brother.
>>1294176 It's definitely Ross. Arin doesn't animate anymore and doesn't really know that much about it. Not saying he wasn't good when he used to do it.
>>1294127 >>1294128 Here's the thing. The way Dan and Arin are, what you see on the show is like seeing every part of an average friendship. Some parts are funny, gross, dumb, chill, deep, personal, most are boring.
Jon and Arin good friends, and the window the show gave us was just of two friends getting together to play games.
>>1293905 Yeah I'm pretty sure Suzy is at least unknowingly behind him not coming out, if not consciously holding him back... look at the way she broaches the subject in the third webm as if to make him feel uncomfortable. Plus there's that hard cut in the first webm that seems like she probably told him to man the fuck up inbetween.
I usually think speculation like this over real people is retarded but it just seems so obvious in this case.
>>1295687 Seriously, I was skeptical as anyone at first but the sheer weight of evidence is against you. I'm praying to fuck that I'm wrong because if he has repressed this hard and is trans then the chance of him transitioning now and looking okay is slim.
>>1302948 It's funny and bad move on their part: the weeks worth of episodes where he's a prick and announces that he has a PhD were all recorded in the same day/ session. In newer eps he says he's fucking sick of that joke. He's a little pompous still which is just him warming up to his new "friends" but they should have hung out and done practice sessions first to get that out of the way.
Danny is the worst thing to happen to GG. Not because he's a bad person but because Erin put him in a position that Dan can't handle - being cohost of a show where they need to play and talk about the games to keep it interesting. He does neither of those because he's not into games.
>>1303460 Danny is annoyingly...subpar at times. But Brian, like, they even talk about what a twat he is, and yet he gets hired on. I don't know how they can stand the guy. Danny probably only keeps him around because he's too nice to do otherwise.
>>1293636 the pseudo-intellectual thing is part of the joke dumbass at least bash arin for the right reasons jeez
the only guys i actually like from gaemgremps are dan arin and jon arin's wife can suck a big load of dicks for all i care >and i bet she does >would watch and fap to tho barry and brian are ok fuck ross
>>1303646 Probably because the popularity of GG made NSP "successful" so to be closer together, Brian agreed to move across the country. So Dan feels obligated to keep him partially employed. NSP is the bigger risk of the two, so it made sense for Dan to stay put in LA with that safe paycheck.
>>1303857 >part of the joke the guy has no education. he spouts rebbit headlines as something he learned and even discovered on his own, and he's frequently wrong even though he tries to sound intelligent with 100% conviction.
Have you seen his Zelda Sequalities? Pompous as fuck, and after it got shit all over, even he said all his points were biased as fuck and didn't make any sense.
it's already begun! they showed another youtube clip of the bloodborne ending, and they've done it again with dead rising! They add NOTHING to a game, so they may as well start using other people's entire playthroughs. IT'S TOO HARD TO PLAY VIDEOGAMES FOR A LIVING!
They keep hiring new people but they do fuck all >Kevin is mediocre at editing and fucks up stuff like synching audio >Irish intern is in charge of camera work for their crappy live action skits >They just hired some guy from Hot Pepper Gaming for "Creative Development" BS >Added Brian as a personality despite him knowing fuck all about vidya and being kind of dry Its kind of a dumb move when small businesses keep adding friends to the payroll
Dead Rising part 45. Dan is getting really fucking pissed off at Arin. This level of visible frustration for him is unheard of. Arin is playing like a huge piece of shit and acting like one too.
There are signs that Arin is headed for a gigantic John Campbell (PFSC) style breakdown with the way he's talking about fan criticism of things he's actually doing shittily right there in the episode. If he keeps acting like a spoiled little brat in his own little world, it's going to be a messy end to say the least.
The worst part is that Dan is completely impotent. Remember when Jon would yank the controller away from Arin to try beating whatever part? Yeah, Dan couldn't do that if he wanted to. He doesn't understand the games, 3D, or even controllers newer than PS1.
>>1304707 a small business making over 100k a month with zero overhead
This isnt like a family pizza shop that makes maybe 1k on a good day, that also has to buy ingredients, equipment, miscellaneous things like boxes, pay for licensing, and have an actual fucking store. Then on top of that actually have to work for a living
>>1319769 Nobody said GG didn't mention it. He shits all over the guy's gameplay too. Thing is that they couldn't be bothered to play the game to show that part. Them playing the game vs anyone else playing the game doesn't matter anymore. GG doesn't add anything to the games other than their podcast over it.
>>1328843 As someone with an actual job, the only shit that really fucking pisses me off is when they start bitching and moaning like during the little warcraft series they did
Just thinking about how much fucking whining they did over playing a few hours of warcraft it pisses me off so much. The fucking money they make and they cant even handle a couple of hours of """"work"""""
its the sort shit that makes me hope for the terrorists to win and forced labor camps
>>1329040 the tl;dr is they have like 5 days to gain 10 WoW levels, they bitch and moan the whole time, danny fucking drops the fuck out because he's so exhausted (he had other things going on but seriously come on).
btw erin gave ross a budget like $700, why, who the fuck knows? so ross pissed it away on sparkling mounts to make arin look like an idiot
>>1331753 prevailing theory is there was some kind of disagreement about how arin wanted to run the show, combined with Jon wanting to continue Jontron Show & stay with his girlfriend who was going to school in NYC.
remember that steam train was planned way before jon nope'd out. I think Jon realized that arin's a talentless hack who wanted to make a living on this shit instead of it still being a fun sideproject.
>>1331753 I personally believe it went down like Chasing Amy.
>Jon is in love with Arin, not any kind of LGBT normally, but he's only gay for the Egoraptor (I mean, why else would he make so many gay jokes about him?). >Arin tells Jon the story of the D Club, after hearing a rumor from Suzy >Jon is distraught that he wasn't Arin's first gay experience. >He comes to Arin's house and screeches; "ARRRRIIIIIN, IIII LOOOOOVVVVVEEE YOOOOOUUUU!!!!!!! >Arin chuckles, saying "no, Jon! Hahaha!" >Jon is heartbroken, runs out of the house crying and screams an earth-shattering [spoiler]EEEECCCCCHHHHHH[/spoiler] into the cold, rainy night. >He flies his magic carpet all the way to NYC with Jacques. >Enter Leigh Daniel Avidan.
>>1321217 >Nobody said GG didn't mention it. Yes, they did. The post that started this said there was a "rumor" that they don't play their games anymore, i.e. in secret.
And I don't get what you think they would add to the game other than their talking over it. It's an LP channel.
>>1328595 But...they do play the games. There were two instances where, at the end of a very long series, they showed clips of what they otherwise wouldn't be able to show (in Dead Rising's case, apparently because it would have taken a dozen more episodes of grinding -- who wants to see that?)
>>1335562 I actually like their Sonic stuff because it's fun to hear Arin absolutely shit on the Sonic franchise and its autistic fans. It makes Dan look like a shill, though, because he has to act overly positive.
>>1333804 >a boneheaded thing to do I don't know why he thought they would be impressed or even care. shows how useful the budget was to begin with. dunno why arin thought it needed one other than to look more like a business.
>>1346115 you could type fucking something, if you really want the thread around Like how about table flip being on sling? How about markiplier being hacked and the six hundred thousand dollars he makes a month? Is arin a tranny or is that wishful thinking by other trannies?
>>1365187 The only cancer related thing Markiplier has that time he started saving his head and dying his hair pastel pink to raise cancer awareness. Although I suppose trying to look like your average Tumblrina is a form of cancer in itself.
I didn't see it either but oh man did I ever see somebody playing Dead Rising poorly. How weird. It's his job AND it's fun enough to do for free yet he can't be bothered. Bland commentary, inept play... what's left for a person to enjoy? Nothing, but this garbage gets huge view counts anyway. Bizarre.
Still, even though John went full jew I still think he's as funny as he's always been. It's not high brow humor. For me, a lot of the laughs just come from the non-sequitors he says. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igg5EQhUOIY
>>1289699 Was he the guy who was doing Flowey's voice in the Undertale playthrough? >It's not my fault, it's just sometimes the text is hard to read. Seriously though, his Flowey voice was beyond awful. Same goes for his Chara voice.
In fact, I don't think he did a single voice right in that game. Papyrus's was just kind of, inoffensive.
Fuck he was also wrong about like, half of the shit in the game. I understand you don't get everything right away, but it was painful when the other guy was just naturally getting it right, and Ross just kept going "No, I think you do it this way".
I remember when they were playing New Super Mario Bros. (or one from that series) and they were both talking about how annoyed they were that Nintendo stopped innovating, and how they were just constantly "playing it safe".
Ironically, that's what the Game Grumps channel does now.
>>1390136 >he's just feels tainted now Yeah no I don't get that. Feels like you're letting /v/ set your opinions too much.
>It's always been stupid memes and shit. Stupid? Absolutely. Memes? Eh, I haven't really picked up on any. Some of his really, really old videos have rage faces in them, but regarding his "recent" videos, I haven't seen anything I'd consider a maymay.
I watch him because I like his commentary, and all the stuff that catches me off guard. Like "grommet" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=igg5EQhUOIY Or hockey coach man. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x_pgWH1XP0Q
Good ol' Don Cherry.
Like I said, I know it's dumb humor, but if I wanted something "refined" I'd read P.G. Wodehouse or something.
>>1393328 Hopefully never. Arin's shit at game design and analysis and he finally admitted it after Zelda Sequalities. He did that one just to push his own opinions and for the sake of another episode (he's said as much on GG) without having much to back it up.
Someone else can do a show like that much better.
Compared to playing games for a living, animation is so hard that it's not worth making something just for the sake of putting out animation. He can pay more dedicated animators for that now.
>>1393210 >>1346147 I dunno about Arin being trans. Have you seen trans people? They're so thirsty for attention and ever since Bruce Jenner came out all the trannies have been coming out in full force. So wouldn't Arin have made a huge deal about it were he trans?
>>1396525 sounds like you've never experiences repression well done, I wouldn't wish it on anyone
to any mtf it's so obvious he's repressing, he seriously ticks ALL the boxes >used to be more fem when he was younger >facial hair but not full beard >long hair but not too long >keeps putting on weight and muscle >constantly jokes about wanting to be a woman but then taking it back >constantly crossdressing >sees his manly self in makeup and his reaction, instead of finding it hilarious, is to almost have a complete breakdown on camera
>>1402646 >>sees his manly self in makeup and his reaction, instead of finding it hilarious, is to almost have a complete breakdown on camera
As an mtf, let me project a lot. I don't agree that he's having a real near-breakdown. However I do agree that his [over]reaction is another sign. This is how I always reacted deliberately and played up how emotional/ uncomfortable that stuff made me.
Either way, his reaction just might be discomfort in doing that stuff for the first time, not necessarily because he expected to look beautiful or is disgusted seeing himself. I remember the first time my gf painted my nails. She had to take me by the hand and drag me to the bathroom to do it. I wasn't eager like some prissy femboy who always asked his parents to wear princess costumes in public.
What does it even mean to be '"Tran"? He's married and he obviously fucks his wife regularly Arin has a queer mindset because of his obsession in anime, he literally owns a cave of video games and anime toys How does that make him Trans?
