A sad, sad place... may I have hugs? <3
I think in recent years especially, even the most squeaky clean person can have some dark secret exposed and have their career ended in a single moment. In general, never idolise people too hard I'd say.
Yeah, that's why I've never particularly "idolised" anyone.

okay well maybe a couple fictional characters, but that doesn't count! that's a whole different problem in and of itself

I think in a Q&A, this topic was brought up. I dont remember the response, but it was from Ryan himself so...
Yeah.

Imagine, you see deadpool, walking down to the phone booth, about to change, and, after he changes, he come out and you see a certain yellow pokemon.

And then the real Deadpool comes and uses him as a weapon.

Deadpool: Pikachu! Use Thunderbolt!

*Pikachu then electrocutes Deadpool*

Deadpool: ...Owwww....

So soon after Projared? Look. I know we need to believe people when they say they were abused and false claims don’t happen nearly as often as people like to believe. But I remember the Tobuscus scandal, and I feel we need to actually investigate and get a guilty verdict before canceling people like this.
At the very least though, I think the news team should stop promoting his content for the time being. If he's found to be innocent, then they can start promoting him again. If not, he gets his promotion cancelled.

Honestly I'm curious to see how SourceGaming and DukeofDorks respond.

That’s fair. I guess.

Surprisingly, when I google him, this doesn’t come up. Like, at all. I just get his Twitter and Patreon.

Again, I'm impressed that James Rolfe managed to stay out such controversies despite starting the whole wacky video game reviews trend.

Like, the worst he got into was the Ghostbusters controversy, and everyone was on his side.

Judging by what I see of SourceGaming they just sweep it under the rug silently like with 2 of their staff members, one being a literal neonazi and the other being a huge homophobe and ****

I think the biggest reason for that is something everyone forgot. The Nerd is a made-up persona, a character nothing like James Rolfe himself. Hell, Rolfe has said multiple times that AVGN shouldn't be considered as an actual review channel or anything because it's all played up fake baby rage whereas others that took inspiration forget that and make their exaggerated rage the way to convey actual criticism. It's like the Sonic movie, it's not too terrible but the overreactions were already there because overreacting is how people get noticed about nerd stuff
Speaking of Know Your Moves, who remembers CrappyCaptureDevice?


I wonder where he went...
I miss that dude. Learned a lot about Fire Emblem with their Marth video

How is he qualified for all these professions again?
He's one of the richest members of society, the one in control of the Panama Papers (Remember that? Nobody with the power to stop it does apparently) and bribes universities to give him the degrees

Huh. Now his name is related to forging in more ways than one.

I actually didn't know he was on the staff.

Well he isn't anymore, I know Nantenjax really didn't like his bull**** and I think it was done after he was put in charge. Also the dude also kept screaming "I ****ed your mom lol" to a user here a while ago on twitter, I think it was praline who experienced that

Oh I definitely know his history lol. I'm just surprised they hired him in the first place.

It's honestly sad. I remember they did some articles on I believe Midna and Jill Valentine and they got a different user here, I think he was called Kenith the Gatherer. Not only was the artwork Kenith made on those articles significantly nicer to look at as it wasn't blurred pixels, but it also wasn't obviously traced (seriously Trace McBadPerson did Venom on a MVCI article and just by searching 'Venom' on google I found the exact ****ing image used in about 15 seconds)

I am convinced that Dr. Mario is actually a completely different person and that he's like, a cousin to Mario and Luigi, or something.

I found a Kirby abilities tier list:


The low placement of Water and Poison disturbs me.
