-blam!- Was that actually blammed out? Or did I just type it? You'll never know.

Well he's got his own site. That's why Doug Walker switched to blip years ago and the RLM guys use it as well.

Good. He was not even funny.


And he actually sucked at a lot of games and even misrepresented some

I dont see why he was terminated, he never uploaded a full movie or show, he just reviewed. So really the people who arr quick to say "he deserves it" is a hasty moron. There's nothing about lets plays and reviews to be breaking policy(though it almost happened). This was a very bad move on youtubes part.
Now, would that be more or less moronic than blindly defending the guy based on your own admission of having zero knowledge about why he was terminated?

Wouldn't that same logic apply for your earlier assertion in this thread? An assumption despite the lack of knowledge for who he was and why he was terminated?
Yes, but I was just being flippant and sarcastic. Obviously I don't actually believe that because I never heard of him, he is automatically guilty of... whatever.

Also, I do think some folks need to take things more lightly around here. Come on, it was, honestly, a pretty obvious joke. And with that, I'm outta here.


maybe you should as well preacher.

Never heard of him. Clearly a minor C-list internet celebrity who thought he was more important than he actually was, violated YouTube's ToS, and got slapped in the ass for it. Good for YouTube and I will now exit this thread and forget about the entire issue.


You have never heard of him? At all? Wow... and he didn't even do anything to violate anything. SEGA is going nuts with instances of supposed "copyright infringement".

Do everyone a favor, get some intelligence, grow a set, bust a nut, and shut the fu­ck up.

For all questions with answers unknown to you, the proper procedure is to assume the answer is peanut butter.

While that may be true, I'm just going to pretend otherwise.

I never thought a mod could be so ignorant. I'm disappointed, not even joking.

You never saw Daz's thread about those targets, did you?

On topic: I've never heard of him, at least that I can remember. What term(s) did he violate?

Rock bottom is no place to set up camp. Especially in the dark.

ITT: People who don't know what sarcasm is. Foman was just saying that because he knows that's what most people will assume and say.

Anyway, he will be missed. I honestly thought he was clever. Not funny, but clever.

What a shame. Guess he will have to now get a real job.

  • 01.08.2013 1:15 PM PST

My troll sense is tingling.

Must've only been down for a few hours, since I can watch his videos and view the channel. There hasn't even been any official announcements about it on Cinemassacre, so I'm guessing it was a genuine error.

Probably because of some pissed of parent that filed a complaint due to the amount of cuss words in his videos.

That sucks but you can still watch his vids on his website.

Thank god. He was terrible.

**Devil's advocate of the Flood. My posts may or may not represent my personal opinion, I just enjoy disagreeing with people. None of my posts are representative of the official view of the Navy or any government agency.

I've got a fan!

If he put video of games on his channel, then he's violating copyright law. He made profit off of someone else's work. Citing them verbally doesn't mean anything.

I assume everyone here is 14 years old until proven otherwise. -bobcast

He's still up...

I'm going to guess he had too many copyright notices on his videos and so they took him down, since YouTube (and copyright holders alike) don't seem to understand that "Fair Use" is a thing.
I'd wager that AVGN was getting ad money from his videos, which means that it doesn't fall under Fair Use.

Want to use a song in your video? Contact the copyright holder. Artists have a right to be compensated for the work the produce.

Lol?

Section 107 contains a list of the various purposes for which the reproduction of a particular work may be considered fair, such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship, and research.

See that? Criticism and commentary.

HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS ARE A BUNCH OF MORONS! Earlier today SEGAs legal department went nuts and reported EVERYONE on Youtube that even mentioned, showed, played some game of theirs (S something 2, I forget). Sega then realized it was being retarded and withdrew any and all complaints and reports.
