    Heh, I feel like now that I'm past 25 there's no more years to be excited about. Because 25 is when your car insurance goes down...and it was not as glorious as it sounded.

    Yea, I was generalizing. I was born in 95 lol and my parents were helicopter parents always reminding me to never put private information online...little did they know what was coming with the launch of Myspace and AIM LOL.

    I grew up being told that you shouldn't post anything on the internet you wouldn't be comfortable with your employer seeing. It seems along the way that bit of advice has been lost. Lol.

    It's a complicated business. Can't really go into details on it or anything obviously and it's not entirely up to me since those rights are owned by Enthusiast Gaming. But yes, I was an independent content creator for almost a decade until taking over The Escapist as my full-time gig, so I know...

    Yes, I made sure all the rights to his content were returned to him earlier this year before any of this went down. He's free to continue ALL of his series back on his own channels uninterrupted.

    Well, you should change that then lol. We're legitimately making a lot of fun and interesting content, it'd be great to see more of you interacting with it outside the forums.

    Well, if you want some new movie and TV coverage, we recently made Darren's In The Frame column as a video series. Love his stuff, I'd recommend checking it out.

    It got to a point where if I didn't come out against it, people would use it as ammo later to paint everyone here as "right wing" again and all that garbage. I've spent a lot of time communicating with the YouTube community and keeping it moderated where I can and people have really noticed and...

    Can't really comment on it. But on YouTube it was a lot of Yahtzee's older fans celebrating Bob leaving and posting some really hateful shit, and then Bob's fans turning around and pointing how awful "we" are because of those comments, and then telling us how the writing is on the wall for The...

    Oh hey, MovieBob got fired (Or let go)

    Yea, I understand. It's been exhausting dealing with the people that are proclaiming they are coming back, and then immediately posting extremely hateful things on the channel and I feel like I have to keep going back and forth to indicate we don't endorse it. Then you've got people on Twitter...

    Just to clear some of this up since there seems to be a lot of speculation and I've held my tongue from commenting on it. The site is fine, the decision did not come from us, but from our parent company and Bob as indicated by the original post. Over the past year we've brought in a lot of new...

    Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time.

    Finished it over the weekend. The very last part of the last level is insanely difficult.
