Where were you when Yogscast faggots got BTFO?
>"As you may have heard, Winterkewl Games have stopped work on Yogventures – but this is actually a good thing, The project was proving too ambitious and difficult for them to complete with their six-man team."
I was busy working during the week. I haven't seen any threads about it. I checked the catalog, there was nothing currently up with the words "yogs".

>two small SSDs.
They could have put a 780 ti in there, but no. Gotta have a blu-ray burner and an I7.
Who the fuck uses optical media in this day and age?
I just realized it has 32 gigs of RAM for some fucked up reason.
>it's a good thing that people who believed in us are being let down
>find guy on Jew Tube who makes a decent Fallout guide for weapon locations
>vids are produced well, gets the info across without any bullshit
>makes a few other vids I like, but also some crappy pseudo-Let's Plays
>joins Yogscast and suddenly makes nothing but crappy full-fledged Let's Plays
Why do people like that group again?
The thing is supposed to be not only a gaming machine but something to edit videos with, an i7 can be nice for that, and having physical backups is always a good idea. (but if you're making youtube shit who really gives a fuck I suppose)
It's a dumb build but I can at least understand the idea behind MOST of it.
Minus the 32 gigs of ram.
And the superfluous SSD.
"Nobody imagined that would happen with Yogventures, the Yogscast game.Those YouTubers have become a a beloved media empire – so this is inconceivable!"
>Gullible retards give their money to unaccountable faggots who promise bullshit
>Act surprised when yet again the faggots in question take the money and run
As much as it makes me happy seeing people lose their money for nothing, I'm upset these faggots don't suffer consequences for what they do. Everyone should be miserable.
Oh god you're gonna love the story of demo reel...
But first, to keep it /v/

>"Although we’re under no obligation to do anything, instead we’re going to do our best to make this right, and make you really glad you backed the project!"
>"Although we’re under no obligation to do anything,"
>Those who have backed are getting close to nothing back; all they’re getting for funding the now cancelled project is a Steam key for another game. Five backers put in over $10 000 of their own money – and now they’re getting a Steam key in reciprocation. Brilliant.
>Doug said, "Action!" and Phelous said, "Look, he's like a real director."
Technically they're not, Winterkewl ran the Kickstarter and are going bankrupt, and the straightforward legal obligation dies with the company. Now, a court might be prepared to call this out as Hollywood accounting fuckery and pin the obligations on the Yogscast fuckwits, but I wouldn't hold my breath.
But yeah, burn the fuckers to the ground.
>Retsuprae actually later apologized to Doug Walker after seeing Pewdiepie
That's because Pewdiepie is the worst shit ever to come out of the new wave LPers, and he acts retarded on purpose to rake in the money.
So does this mean people will finally stop being idiots about kickstarters? Between this, anita, and all the other kickstaters I'm not aware of that I'm sure failed to deliver the promised product, I'd hope people would finally realize they shouldn't give money on nothing but good faith to people they don't even fucking know.
Who am I kidding, I bet if yogscast set up a new kickstarter today it'd get just as much funding. People are morons
What I've never understood is... why in hell back Kickstarters when the fucking Stockmarket exists?
What is the point of investing money into Kickstarter, when you could be buying ownership of their fucking company and getting money back for doing it?
Yogscast said that winterkewl where long time veterans and a skilled team of devs
Yogscast made the home site for the game their own website and gave it their full backing.
When shit hit thefan Yogscast distanced themselves from winterkewl and now +$500,000 dollars are gone.
I'm sad. This kickstarter looked great, and now it's cancelled. I'm glad Yogscast decided to give people another game even though they weren't obligated to. It shows how awesome these guys are despite the situation they're in.
The red flag should've been the fact that the yogscast were ever raising money in the first place. How big is their company? They're filthy stinking rich and I seriously doubt they couldn't have funded it themselves.
But, you know, if they were to do that they couldn't just make a quick buck off suckers.
>where is the rage?
I'm not sure what you mean by "rage" but were having hourly threads about this and there aren't exactly supporters.
you faggots need to stop confusing "rage" with "being a contrarian"
>What I've never understood is... why in hell back Kickstarters when the fucking Stockmarket exists?
The actual question is why do kickstarters exist when VCs exist?
Basically, decentralized funding source = decentralized oversight/authority
>WHERE IS WHAT I PAID FOR
Everything you said was wrong. They already have the means to produce the game yet chose to make a kickstarter anyway then canceled it and gave people codes on steam instead.
How the fuck is giving someone who donated $100 to them when they didn't need it a gift that isn't worth more than $60 at best?
People gave more than a $100 too
>It shows how awesome these guys are despite the situation they're in.
Being literal millionaires and still asking for the capital to produce something they can for a fraction of the price then not even delivering that? You do realize they just gave their backers something off steam for free and that's about it?
What exactly is the appeal of yogscast? I looked up a popular video of theirs and it was literally just 2 shithead britbongs stating the obvious, as if that were funny.

>paying $8000 to permanently mutilate your crotch
Keep in mind this is after this massive scandal that cost them hordes of subscribers
just leave this fucking thread if you so shameless do not know anything.
They started out as a wowpodcast then focused on minecraft and some LPs on the side. Lot of collaborations with TB and then became a part of Polaris (big fucking group a lot of the major LPers are a part of )
They definitely had their own fanbase to make their own game which is why this news is so outrageous
I'm actually okay with this.
I mean if people want to throw money at it, and it makes them happy, fuck. Crowdfund your sex change. No problem for me.
The yogscast game thing, on the other hand, is objectionable since they have enough money to make it themselves, demanded it off their fans anyway, then jewed them by not delivering a product.
The only real "good thing" about this is that eventually stuff like this will end up drawing some serous government scrutiny towards Kickstarter and similar websites and finally snowball into some real consumer rights protections and legislation on these con job operations.
it started as a WoW clan from Something Awful, yogs standing for ye olde goon squad. Yogscast was made by some of these people and started making videos on youtube. Now it's pretty big with kids and autists into minecraft.
Woah, uh, not that I'm not grateful and all, but can you give me the tl;dr?
In exchange, have this nice webm.
Yeah, I agree. I know plenty of britbongs but none of them are as irritating as these guys. I'm not sure if its their voices or if the fact that they're british is a coincidence or what.
Also, is that what people mean by british humor? Just stating the obvious like that?
This is what I don't get. Why didn't they try making a second kickstarter?
I'm sure they could get retards to fund it. Positive. Minecraft autists are the most autist autists to autist autistically.
I think i should start watching Brad Jones's stuff, everyone says that he's the only person who makes good stuff on TGWTG, but i've never cared too much about it, so, is he as good as everyone says he is?
>ejection port on left side at start of video

>necked cartridge in semi-auto pistol (probably .357 sig, since centerfire?)
it's shit. And goddamn it /k/ has seeped into my brain.
i really hope someone called them out on their licensing bullshit especially when THEY were trying to make a game.
the actual development costs of that 500k actually shrunk to like 125~150k after their jewing.
He is, but he's dragging himself down by associating with the rest of those retards. I would love to see him work with Redlettermedia. He'd make for a fun Best of the Worst guest.
>I mean if people want to throw money at it, and it makes them happy, fuck. Crowdfund your sex change. No problem for me.
The problem was that he/she made it seem like a crowd fund for a surgery to save his/her life. There was no life in danger. This person just wanted a sex change and didn't want to pay for it.
I bet /v/ bought into this shit.
I remember when /v/ was on Notch's nutsack 24/7. I also remember when they paid for some alpha minecraft clone that ceased development shortly afterwards.
This place is shit.
>It was all the developer's fault but we're gonna make sure you get some dumb shit you didn't pay for to make up for it!
They don't apologise once or even mention the word "sorry". While you're a gigantic retard if you gave them money, I still hope they get reamed.
PRobably because it wouldn't be fair to the first people and would likely cause bigger problems for them in the long run. I mean strictly speaking, lets say they did make another kickstarter with a different dev team. Even if they got it funded, they're probably under obligation to still give the first kickstarter people a game as well. Which would mean that they're almost garenteed to not get much of a profit in the long run.
Its just easier to cut your losses.
All of the people who actually play video games moved /vg/, /vr/, and /vp/.
The only people who remain are losers who either need to validate their purchases or cry about muh tumblr sjws.
Kickstarter is great if you actually do research as a consumer and treat it like an investment rather than a then-and-there purchase. Typically, I don't back something unless I've actually had hands on experience with it (Shovel Knight, some of the tabletop games I've kicked) or a situation where I either trust the established dev or the failure to deliver what was promised would drive the company into the ground (Shantae and Wayforward, MN9 and Comcept, Cosmic Space Heroine and Zeboyd).
Fuck, a tabletop game I backed like three months is actually shipping four months AHEAD of schedule, I've never heard of that happening before.
Most of the people peaced out a couple months into development, nearly all of the responsibility was piled onto the lap of the lead dev

How? did they imply they'd kill themselves if they didn't get it, or what? My impression is just that "Tumblr SJWs" (and centre-y non SJWs sympathetic to transgenders, but tumblr would "give mass" to the thing) found the page and gave them money.
I mean if they were just dramatic as all without saying they'd literally die, there's no real issue with that to me. Maybe it just was a serious issue for them. I'll check if the page is still up and amend this post after watching the video.
>This person just wanted a sex change and didn't want to pay for it.
I'm presuming they couldn't afford it. (Which while for many things would be "tough, can't afford, can't have", but with a sex-change I'd put it a bit above wanting-but-being-unable-to-afford a car, but I don't want to de-rail this into a discussion about sex-changes.)
Mainly though, I've no issue with using crowdfunding as a begging system - it's purely optional for people to throw money at it. Crowdfund a Coffee for all I care.
>not get much of a profit
they get plenty profit from their youtube videos, why the fuck don't they take the small profit and do a nice thing for their fans?
I mean it's redundant since if they did that, they wouldn't kickstart it, they'd just put their own cash on the line.
>there are people on /v/ right now who actually donated towards this
>HE DESTROYED HIS ENTIRE LIFE FOR STRANGERS ON THE INTERNET
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH
no they used two different guns or cgi. The ejection port is on the left side, then magically on the right.
definitely not 9mm. Look again. As I said necked cartridge. Never seen a 9mm? it doesn't have that dip near the front, the cartridge walls are straight and flat. See pic.
The press releasse is scummy as fuck. They try to lay all the blame on Winterkewl Games when those 2 manchildren are to blame for not doing a proper background check.
Its like buying an authentic Rolex from a nigger for 100 bucks. Who's to blame in this situation, the nigger or the retard falling for the obvious scam?
They were idiots for thinking they could pull it off and investing their lives into it, but mostly it just exemplifies how the yogscast guys are scummy fucks for taking advantage of their naivety and allowing it to happen in the first place.
It seems I was thinking of another person, but this one certainly did try to scam others.
Unless you're swimming in money to the point that you never need to work again, dumping crap tons of money into something and not get anything back is moronic.
Making a game isn't cheap and they're not so stupidly rich when you consider that they can't keep all of the money they make since a lot of it goes to expenses too.
Oh. That's bad. That's obviously wrong.
Why wasn't she just honest? There are a reasonable number of people who would probably gladly donate. (as the other crowdfunded thing shows)
>paid to not make a game.
>destroys his own life for free.
After looking at it more, I'm pretty sure it's a 9mm necked down to a .22.
I think the first shot of the gun is inverted, the pointer finger is still below the ejection port.
it's god damn amazing how you fags manage to turn every damn discussion into lgbt/feminism whining
seriously, go start a fucking blog already. everyone will be better off, including you
Kinda, you just can't get pregnant, the lubrication doesn't work the same way as in a female, there's no blood every month, more cleaning issues, also, there's a 70% chance or so that you'll never be able to reach orgasm again.
>ejection port on left side at start of video
>on the right in every other shot
Well lots of movies flip shots horizontally because the director or editor thinks they look or flow better. There are so many shots in the Lord of the Rings movies that are mirrored keep some kind of left/right continuity but you can see it's almost half the time the elvish brooches on the hobbit cloaks are flipped.

Cuntstarter, ladies and gentlemen.
well yeah, communities like
/pol/and stormfrontshare a lot of similarities with other sociopolitical communities like tumblr.and some subreddits and generally reddit
They have a lot more in common than they'd like to let on.
If they're not protecting investors putting millions of dollars into projects why are they going to protect your $10 investment into a Yogscast video game.
Investors take risks, that's all there is to it, you're an investor that gets no equity.
>mfw I've never watched a single thing yogscast produced
>mfw I didn't even know they had a kikestarter
>mfw when people still don't learn and get swindled by kikestarter
>mfw people trust 'youtubers' to know how to make a vidya.
If you lost money on this, you don't deserve to have money.
They're not even investors, just donators really.
I've got no legal knowledge of how this stuff works but I'm curious as to what would happen if a bunch of donators took them to court over this...
I love how brief and dry that final update is. It just reeks with shame and embarrassment.
Hope this nutjob kills itself.
You clearly haven't been spending enough time on /k/ if you can't tell they're 9mm blanks.
They called Doug's video "the 9/11 of lets-plays" and stopped just short of comparing it to the holocaust.
What's funny about the apology is that in Dougs video, they spend a lot of time apologizing to people they did before since they're nowhere near as atrocious as Doug.
Correct, but the image was directed at people who would go into every thread about upcoming games and just spam about how the game will be shit and fail regardless if there was actually any writing on the wall or not.
This is why you dont use kickstarter.
I funded the first dvd set and I just funded season 2. On top of that James used indiegogo for AVGN:movie and its done. Say what you will about it, but he did it.
I don't get this mentality. It bugs me that OP's article starts and ends with "I don't like Kickstarter", as if it's Kickstarter's fault that the yogshitters jewed other people out of their money. The fact that the yog shitters are a bunch of lazy, deceitful cunts has nothing to do with the thousands of other individuals trying to get their own projects funded.
Be smart about it and don't give your money to people whose "job" is to make shitty Youtube videos. If you gave money to a project that went belly up, you've only got yourself to blame.
They aren't pay his unemployment and no one will hire him. His letter of recommendation is garbage because he outed himself after his boss threw a fit about it.
I think he's pretty good, one of the few people from TGWTG I find tolerable. Sometimes I watch MikeJTV, Suede, that one guy with the curly hair that reviews manga, and occasionally Phelous. I'm debating whether I should start watching Lindsay again, loved her work when she was no longer obligated to act like a female version of NC.
How shitty are my tastes?
What about potato salad? have you seen all the shitty kickstarters that popped up after idiots funded that? I entirely blame kicstarter because they don't filter anything out of the thousands of kickstarters that were funded how man have had success?
I'm not saying indiegogo is the best thing ever, but you dont see many scams stories from them.
