>game grumps are playing mario 3d world
> they're reading miiverse comments in between levels
Holy shit guys get on miiverse and start posting drawings of jontron NOW
>implying they won't intensely ignore it or just rerecord the episode if one of them actually mentions it
it's like you haven't seen it for the last year.
They should be on world 6 by now
> mfw they get jon faces all over their miiverse feed
Oh christ i can already hear Arin with his stupid fucking voice.
>BLA BLA GAME TOO HARD
>BLA BLA BAD DESIGN
>BLA BLA NOSTALGIA
>BLA BLA HAHA THAT'S FUNNY
>BLA BLA OH THIS REMINDS ME OF
>BLA BLA THIS SUCKS!
>BLA BLA OH THAT'S NICE
Ughh his stupid fucking voice and his stupid fucking bitching and he's such a petty fucking person and nitpicks like fuck and never enjoys anything aside the shit he grew up with fucking piece of shit goddamn.
I hate him because he's literally /v/ in human form, but with an alien GF and even less taste.
>see people praising his Zelda sequelitis
>it's just THINGS ARE DIFFERENT THEREFORE THEY'RE BAD: the video
>also pretty much confirms how he plays games on gamegrumps isn't an act
There's some buzz going around both on reddit and some obscure sites with anonymous intel saying that Barry was caught ogling suzy (or whatever arin's wife's name is) Arin knows barry does so and now he is looking for a replacement. The anonymous user says that arin asked him if he'd like to work for them, but he refused for a disclosed reason.
I remember checking them out a long time ago and didn't find them particularly engaging.
JonGrumps has been the best co-op LP show for a long time.
TheRunawayGuys would be the best right now if Emile would just shut the fuck up sometimes.
>Arin shitted on Sunshine
>now shitting on 3D World
does he even like video games?
Mario Sunshine was an inferior sequel to 64 and nobody likes Fludd, Petey Pirahna, Bowser Jr, the fact that you need to do EVERY mission to beat the game, the linearity, the ridiculous star requirements sometimes, the voice acting, the reversed controls when you were climbing, the samey levels, the blue coin hunting, the controls, or the art style
The only praise Sunshine ever gets is "Man, I liked those levels where you DIDN'T have the jetpack"
If they are uploading it now it means they played it like, a week or two ago, maybe even more. If they even finish the game in more than one session you would have to be posting for a while to make sure they even see any of them.
They are still playing it as pictures people are posting talking to them are popping up on the show. Your guys best best is to go to the final world and post on those levels as much as possible(The later the better). Show your love for jon!
they played nwmb wii or wii u, i forgot which one, and was just constantly saying "its just mario its the same stuff boring"
all he does is complain, and his complaints are awful
give them another go. im going to suck their dick a bit but WRTP is like the best channel on youtube
-they dont act it up and overreact to shit like most lets players.
-they dont turn into their personal blog like game grumps.
-they are actually pretty skilled at games and play them seriously (ok maybe spence is bad but hes still better than most lpers)
-theyre actual friends unlike gg, runaway, etc
runawayguys is like pewdiepie and game grumps. screaming, blogging, overracting, being shit at games
wrtp is fun not because youre necessarily laughing all the time, but because its the only channel you feel like youre playing with your friends. they play the games seriously and talk about them and beat them (often time 100% them). not to mention good editing and presentation. its calm. like actually playing the games
He's just as autistic as Arin but in different ways.
He shits on any flaw in a game ridiculously hard.
He's also a huge sonic fag and rated bullshit like shadow the edgehog and lost world over stuff like prime 2
>watching a DA-tier Sonic fan
I'm sure he can be fine, but Jesus that avatar of his doesn't make me want to stick around for more of his shit Sonic opinions..
I'll give them a year, tops, before they fall into the shit pile of Youtube celebrity.
>thread has something to do with video games
>"NOT VIDYA, FAGGETS! HEY! STOP POSTING IN THIS THREAD! IT'S NOT ABOUT VIDYA! HEY! WHY ISN'T ANYONE LISTENING?"
Yeah, nah. You're retarded.
Competitive market, bids for relevancy, any sort of personal drama/trauma driving them apart, ennui, getting a 9-to-5 job, people not wanting friendship simulators moving on to the "next big thing". Pick your poison.
Jesus fuck that was my favorite thing
>Nobody liked Fludd
I will murder your family.
I think that he thought it was funny to fake being arrogant in his competitive nature, but then it actually became how he really is. Egoraptor becomes a fitting name more and more every day.
"All posts should pertain to video games, their consoles, and video game culture. Threads should remain on topic and stay in theme with the board. Don't post off-topic garbage."
So I'm going to ask you, even though I know you're a dumbass troll, why isn't this thread video game related?
When they uploaded the PT playthrough they mentioned that they were just playing this before starting up PT.
Assuming they weren't just putting up an illusion, they're still recording.
Recorded ahead of time. I mean, for god's sake, they play videogames all day and only give us 30 minutes of video on average every day. Odds are they already gave up and went WHAT DO I DO? THIS IS BULLSHIT! GAMEFEEL! by this point.
>watching other people play video games
>Sorry it's from an analogy Dan told me today
Jesus fuck, did she not graduate high school either? Did two high school drop outs get fucking married and now make mad youtube money?
Fuck this shitty country.
You know what makes it even worse? It's that that normalfag Danny agrees with every single fucking thing he says because he's such a fucking beta bitch. At least with Jon there was different opinions, and you know, less jokes about stuff like sex or dicks or whatever the fuck
>that PT video
>they bitched out before it was even over
Really? I didn't even go to art school and I know how to draw better than that... kind of makes me feel better about myself.
Then again, going to art school is a huge fucking waste of time when you can learn to draw on your own by practicing and taking critique (as long as it is not on DA).
>nobody likes Fludd, Petey Pirahna, etc...
Danny doesn't know shit about video games. Like, I'm not shit talking, he said he played morrowind for like 3 years in high school and not much else besides some NES games when he was a kid.
Why do you keep going? You've already lost your argument. All you can do now is throw a tantrum and further make yourself look like a retard. I'm just going to stop replying now. You should probably just do the same, lest you continue to make a fool of yourself.
Who the fuck do you think you are, faggotron? Why don't you fucking make me? Oh, I know why: it's because it would require you to leave your mother's basement and stop eating cheetos out of your fedora. Unlike you, I'm a college student with a future that doesn't include autism bucks. Stay mad and tip your fedora elsewhere.
I don't necessarily have the game or anything to play it on.
I didn't lose a single argument, this isn't video games, there's no point you can make to win.
actually i'm a senior in college, get more mad please :)
>"Who is Hideo Kojima?"
>"WHO THOUGHT OF THIS?" (The brilliant directors of the game, cockmongler)
>"I'M DONE, I'M 2SPOOKED"
Dan is the better half, but fuck if he isn't semi-retarded
I respect Danny because he honestly admits he did not play video games and even blatantly said when he started that he doesn't have strong opinions because of this.
Funnily enough, it made him more credible than Arin. Fucking Arin with a controller is like a young kid with ADHD playing a game. I wouldn't be surprised of some of his more highly held games a mobile games, which are instant gratification type games
But Jon was a beta too.
He was just as much of a faggot as Arin is.
And soon, the Game Grumps mysteriously stopped playing Mario 3D World.
Stopped reading there, it's a shithole of circle jerking
I'm sorry men on the Internet are the only way you get validation for your opinions on children's games. I'm referring to >>258596762
and I haven't watched basically any of TCMJ and assumed he had the same opinions as Clement
Recently I've been realizing that Dan is a really cool guy, even though he knows shit about video games. You can really tell that Arin kinda forced him into Game Grumps, though, and forces him to do a lot of things to do a joke.
Dan and Jon Game Grumps would have been godly.
>Someone making money off of my work WITHOUT ASKING MY PERMISSION FIRST is my business
But they literally monotize recording video games that were made by other companies and are doing so without asking permission.
Suzy is literally the only one of them that I abhorrently dislike. She's such a fucking cunt, man. I'm fine with the rest of them and still watch. Just nothing with her in it.
mad that you can't have an eceleb hugbox here? this shit isn't welcome on /v/
>mfw Arin during that entire DKC series
Arin loves 3D World and I'm pretty sure he enjoyed the Sunshine playthrough when he wasn't raging for sucking at it.
Also good on him for shitting on the New Super Mario games, those are literal rehashes
If you're gonna complain about Arin, make decent points. There's plenty of better shit to say, like how he can't be bothered to fucking animate anything by himself.
>Fucking Arin with a controller is like a young kid with ADHD playing a game
seriously, does this motherfucker have somewhere to be all the time? he seems like he can't fucking wait for anything that takes longer than 5 seconds.
Looks to me like the thread is still going on and everyone is still discussing the topic even though "it isn't welcome on /v/". If it really bothered you, why not just report it? Unless you already did. In which case, it's clearly still here and you're clearly wrong.
>mfw Jon during the DKC runs
What the fuck I thought nostalgia games were his niche.
How much of a failure do you have to be to fuck up that hard at DKC 1+2
If the TvTropes page is right, he lost his V-card at 23.
>arin forces them through everything
>jon is stuck trying to get them out of their ruts
>all the progression episodes are the episodes where jon was playing
>Arin breaks down as soon as he starts losing
How many of you even still watch grumps? I gave up on them around E3/SGDQ, because after going without them for a week I realized that they were utterly terrible and not worth watching. I think the last thing I saw of them was Sequelitis: Anything I Don't
Gamefeel Nostalgic For Is Shit Edition, which just cemented my belief they should just not be watched any further.
Not sticking up for Arin or anything, but it was a pretty cunty thing to do to not just tell Arin how to get on the mat.
I might be biased though, I had a friend like that as a kid where he would invite me over to play starfox 64 and then crush me at it because I didnt know how to play.
Jon is younger than Arin and based his "career" off of critiquing video games. Danny is older than Arin and based his career off of an early 80's parody rock band. Video games were just a thing he kind of did like most people. I personally think it's funny to watch him die in various ways in their 3D world series, especially because he's always so fucking light-hearted about it. He's the chillest guy in the world.
Dan's genuine excitement and enjoyment he got from playing Shadow of the Colossus was really something for me. It was someone just having a lot of fun with a really good game. It pushed him out of his comfort zone of old school games and showed he's capable of beating games made after 1996.
Arin is kind of an asshole but he's the only reason Dan is playing games so I tolerate it.
I should commission Teckworks to draw the most retarded picture ever with Jontron fucking Blaze while that hand he likes to use fingers her, while his parrot does that AWW YEAH face. The background would consist entirely of ECH repeated infinitely.
When he sends me the colored picture and asks for the second half of payment, I'll just tell him to fuck off and not pay him.
i stopped watching after jon left and i realized just how low my opinion of arin was. he's just too fucking bad at games and at being even remotely entertaining for me to watch.
i don't even understand how people take those sequelitis videos seriously. my friend convinced me to watch it, saying he made some really good points about shit, but then was just "this is different and is therefore bad" for half the video
My point was: don't be irked that the country allows for opportunity to people who make their successes in an unorthodox fashion.
Making money off Youtube videos--or whatever these people do, I'm not some faggot who watches people talk about video games, but /v/ has become People Magazine for e-celebrities, so you learn a bit whether you want to or not--is way left-base unorthodox, but don't lump in all the rebels with the shitty examples.
It was the best worst moment of his online video life
>Actually makes a video where he calls DKC2 one of the greatest video games ever made, and that it's totally relaxing, and makes you just feel so good
>RAGEQUIT on Game Grumps after playing BOTH charcters because FUK DIS GAME
Wikipedia says nothing of Einstein dropping out, your dropout brain must've mixed him up with Bill Gates, who only dropped out because even the highest colleges at the time lacked the materials he needed to research into more advanced computers.
Fucking exactly. When GG started I liked Arin a lot because I enjoyed his cartoons for years and agreed with his Megmana sequelitus, and I found Jontron like half a year before GG came out. Now I fucking hate Arin because he's actually a god damn hack, began to hate Jon for being annoying and immature on GG (like him again since he quit and his videos are pretty top now), and Danny is just a fantastic all around person.
9/10 would high-five even though high-fiving is for fucking losers
I forgot the part where Einstein left school to become an artist and then played video games to entertain autismos for a living
Maybe then Hiroshima wouldn't have happened and we wouldn't have all this weird japanese shit. Maybe if Arin and Einstein switched places, there would be no let's players.
WE HAVE TO GO BACK PIC RELATED
Ross plays the dumbass card too much and it pisses me off. Danny just sucks st games, and he doesn't play jokes off well . Arin and Jon actually rebounded each other's jokes and it worked well, but Arin is insufferable.
Even still you can clearly tell Ross is much more responsible not only as a content creator (he practices and improves much more at animation than Arin) but as a person in general (his recent video on why YT and google are shitty showed he can be plenty articulate when he needs to be). He is smarter than Arin AND has a hotter wife.
Danny plays off jokes well, he just does it differently than Jon. Jon goes the full 9 retard yards while Danny does it much more subtle or well thought out. He's way better at improv than Jon was (Jon admitted he wasn't strong at improv, which is why he thought his premeditated work was funnier) because Danny actually had improv training and Second City.
She's no 10/10 but she beats the pants off of the hellish skinwalker Arin hooked up with
The last time I watched Game Grumps was back during the Goof Troop game. So, their fourth LP I guess.
Did they ever actually get good? Are any playthroughs worth watching?
I respect your opinions, but I disagree. A good example of what I'm talking about is the Castlevania episode where they talk about Bill Nye. Danny says something along the lines of "looks like you're the science guy now" and it was really funny, then he follows it up with "YOU HAVE BEEN AWARDED THE TITLE OF SCIENCE GUY" in an old English accent, and it kills the joke.
In case anyone doesn't know, here's what Suzy looks like.
>Using the non-subtle version of the image
Where in the board rules does it say that? Also as far as I'm concerned.
>discussion of things pertaining to video games is still video game related
You have to be this autistic to not realize that
Yeah, I'll agree that he can have some trouble keeping one joke up for a long time, but even then he can do it pretty well sometimes too. Like the Mr. Wilson thing, they both played off each other pretty well for that. I'll admit going back and watching some early Danny stuff was kind of obnoxious because he did that British accent a lot with a lot more reddit tier shit, but since about the Sunshine series, he def cooled down on that.
Here's another example of them playing off each other well (go to 2:12). Danny has really good comedic timing. Also apparent on the christmas shirt promo where they're around the tree and he keeps hitting the presents around
Really? Because I'd like to see you prove how waiting to open a treasure chest, or waiting for every enemy in the game to drop their shield, or waiting for tones to play so the door is unlocked, or waiting for a song to finish even after you already played it yourself, or waiting to turn back into a kid, or waiting for people to tell you that you need a letter to explore this mountain instead of just exploring it is a good thing.
>people still don't know what gamefeel means without having Arin explicitly define it for them
it's when you pick up the game and the controls are intuitive without showing you a screen of what every button does
it's when you play a game for the first time and the player's goal is clear without being hamfisted
it's when you can see clearly how to increase your own skill at the game without it becoming grindy
this is good gamefeel, jesus christ
Totally. There's one episode (I think it's one of the first eps of Megaman 3) where Dan calls him out on it too. Something like "Wow, how convenient that the song has the EXACT same beat as the beatbox you always do"
More like the first mario bros game. Run right, you can jump, and run fast. Only thing you can do is jump, so try jumping on enemies. It's just built upon that the whole game.
He also says things like "I knew that beatbox was coming" and stuff like that
Suck my dick. Choke on it. You have literally no reason to think that waiting is a good game mechanic. There's a good reason people prefer SF2 Turbo. There's a good reason people turn off move animations in Pokemon, and turn up the text scroll speed of every game that allows it.
Well, I would say Pokemon does that extremely well, too. By the second time you fight Blue, you've been exposed to type effectiveness without it being a 5 minute monologue you have to read.
I guess so, though that's more cerebral than what most people think of as gamefeel. Since pokemon's an rpg, it's more just like "understanding the basics of the rules of the game". I always think of gamefeel in more of an action/platformer way because of how those games just drop you in like "HERE YA GO FAGGOT FIGURE IT OUT DON'T DIE SO MUCH WHAT DID I JUST SAY WHY DIDN'T YOU FIGURE IT OUT DO IT BETTER THIS TIME"
With that in mind I would say Demon's Souls has terrible gamefeel. But I definitely see your point, turn based games don't have the same feeling of necessity to learn that action based games do.
"Okay I took my time to explore the menus to learn more about this game. Ah, the stats screen, this should be revealing--WHAT THE FUCK AM I EVEN LOOKING AT"
I remember some podcast with Ash and her brother talking about the game and talking about how the coins are so out dated, and later talking about how the coins should be used as money to the suits.
All these people who i used to like when i was younger turned out to be real pieces of shit.
I'd still let ash sit on my face while she teases my dick with her feet.
Yeah, I'd agree with that. Though the Souls games are fun, so I guess people might be putting too much stock into gamefeel as an indicator for how good a game is. I think it's really just one of those things where if it has it good, that's cool. If it's not there, it's not the worst thing since it's really just about teaching the player which will EVENTUALLY happen. I'd say that it's only a negative if it's REALLY poor to the point where it severely disrupts the flow of gameplay.
Like in Earthbound, it's not exactly intuitive of what to do unless you talk to EVERYONE. But if you don't play a lot of rpg's, you probably won't do that and will get stuck and think the game blows.
Ah, that's fair. Sure, I guess I've played plenty of games with bad gamefeel that turned out to be fucking great games. Like Star Wars Battlefront, or several puzzle games.
Have you played PT? I watched GG play. Now THAT is some good gamefeel.
"Okay, I guess I'm just supposed to go through this house...well, there's this radio thing that says something about hearing numbers. Oh shit, now I'm hearing numbers. Wonder what that means."
There's no stats to worry about, and you have no idea what your ultimate goal actually is, but you still know very clearly how to achieve it. I'm not trying to suck Kojima's dick here or anything, but god damn that teaser is really well thought out.
You what? She's already in the process of gathering up some papers when he enters the room, either she's straightened up and is standing slightly off camera or she moved away to put the papers elsewhere. She doesn't even look at Jon or notice him filming.
