Ah, that was not what I thought it would be. I thought you were doing your David Cage voice (slightly off due to yelling) and the joke was that actual gameplay in videogames just confuses the hell out of him. The "like and subscribe" line does make a lot more sense now.Jimothy Sterling said:

Honestly, it burning to the ground might be the pinnacle of beauty. I get the tenets of "don't be a dick," but the fact that constructive criticism or negative feedback is immediately considered caustic is a really big problem. Possisbly a bug in humanity, but I wouldn't want to be accused of playing it wrong.canadamus_prime said:
The title (The Dark Syde) is a pretty blatant giveaway. That being said, it took me a while to make the connection, but that's only because I've tried so hard to forget that DSP even exists. And now I have to crack open the emergency whiskey and start forgetting all over again....ugh.Arslan Aladeen said:I kinda thought Jim was talking about most reviewers in general, but I'm not surprised to hear it's specifically about DSP.
It's kind of astonishing to me how widespread it's gotten.Palademon said:
OK, thanks Jim, I'm now more informed on what this was about. I need to do more research into DSP to know whether he is genuinely really bad at a games, or just a really good troll. Either way, it seems to make money for him :/Jimothy Sterling said:
So he sounds like Onision and Lifeinatent?StormShaun said:Oh Ben, you make it sound like a fairly dark story as always.
The ending only made it more enjoyable.
And Jim ... holy crap you almost made me spit out my soda, for it almost made me fall on the floor laughing, in a good way obviously. The accent was the best part of all, it sounded like a certain Youtuber, but I won't spoil it until we can all merrily chat about it in the comments ... and probably shit on him some more.
Another good week, and I shall enjoy the next one as well.

I can't imagine who that would be. ¬___¬Darth_Payn said:
Man, if he's faking it, then he deserves a lot of applause for being the most dedicated actor on the planet.Lunar Templar said:o.o ...Jimothy Sterling said:
I know not who this person is, but I have clear been missing nothing worthy of note if his 'act' (I assume its an act cause if its not I wonder how he's still alive) is rocking a style of humor that has pretty much killed my interest in big Hollywood comedy's.
IE: being as stupid as you can be to the point on not functioning.
Yahtzee's was dark. Jim's... I have no clue. Who was that supposed to be? Some Youtube personality that I haven't heard of?NerAnima said:I enjoyed Yahtzee's bit, it certainly wouldn't be that great to have no criticism, then we wouldn't have the chance to listen to these two nuts.
And Jim......I liked the poem, I really did, the accent was good, but I have no idea what that was...
Oh I see.Jimothy Sterling said:
I did not explain the joke. There was context some people did not have, because that is how parody works.TheMadDoctorsCat said:
I wasn't in on it. And it's like discovering the El Dorado of trainwrecks.Zachary Amaranth said:
Oh wow, I haven't seen the Dark Souls bit yet. Now I must go watch. Immediately.grimner said:I wasn't in on it. And it's like discovering the El Dorado of trainwrecks.
I am currently watching him play Dark Souls and... wow.
Well if you have to show them a PICTURE of the damn aardvark...Jimothy Sterling said:I did not explain the joke. There was context some people did not have, because that is how parody works.TheMadDoctorsCat said:
If you're gonna sling proverbs around, make sure you understand 'em first.
Zachary Amaranth said:
It takes some serious fucking stamina to keep that kind of posture for the duration of entire breakthroughs, and what Jim showed was a 2 hour "highlight reel", so... I am guessing he IS serious, just not meant to be taken seriouslyTheMadDoctorsCat said:Or to put it another way, the guy in the youtube video is clearly taking the p-ss, surely?
It's like trying to parody the "I speak Jive" scene from "Airplane". It's already supposed to be dumb!
EDIT - or am I giving the guy (not Jim, the guy in the youtube video) way too much credit here? People here apparently think he's serious... I dunno, it seems like a "Nostalgia Critic"-esque performance to me.
Jesus...I watched all of it, and god dammit that was painful. I think the highlight was how proud he was when he essentially cheated the sorrow. I was actually wondering all the way up to that point why he was using tranq, didn't really fit. Thank you so much for showing this to us Jim. Was a great laugh for me.Jimothy Sterling said:
