Wow I’m not exactly sure how to fully approach this subject.
This is something I wanted to talk about for a while now specifically the fact that Asalieri has gone full-blown anti-feminism. Is it an okay position to take? Sure, especially when you consider the highly vocal “feminists” (I’m gonna put them in quotations) who are rapidly becoming the target of jokes for their cronyist behaviour and inability to engage reality. The part that makes this discussion a problem however is that feminism has done good things… its just that it did those good things several years ago as opposed to right now.
Women have historically not had it good but I mean that’s kinda obvious but in the 1920’s femnist movements started and they resulted in wide-spread social progress. Women could work, women could vote and most importantly these changes lead to larger equality and better living conditions. It is undeniable that without feminism we would not have this blog for you to read but at the same time its undeniable that psychopaths have claimed ownership of feminism and (rather successfully I’m afraid) managed to push out all the other people who believed in it and became its new face. They did this entirely due to having unlawful relations with the media but in exchange now it seems both the media and feminism will go down as douchebags that helped ruin millions if not billions of lives thanks to their ego-centric and misanthropic behaviour. You might say that there’s no way western media and feminist agenda could affect this many people but you’d be wrong, the legislature is already there, there’s statistics that prove that in a divorce of a hetero-normative marriage, the male will be screwed; and its quite clear that even though statistics show that women get the most degrees in post-secondary education, women simply aren’t motivated enough (probably due to being told their effort won’t count or that they’re above working hard) to actually bother taking advantage of that. Third wave feminism has intentionally fallen victim to Jevon’s paradox, a paradox that states that any efficiency gained by improving a system will be lost to external factors such as increased use (though jevon’s paradox applies specifically to technological changes, its quite clear that feminism has managed to hit it without the use of technology). Women now have their right to employment, their right to vote, to make their own decisions and are now being told not to make them, not to work and not to seek employment because victimhood is apparently a better choice. And just to ensure there will be animosity between genders, females are getting severe leniency in courts while men can be accused of sexual assault with no evidence or harassment again with no evidence and get the next 10 years of their life messed up. Oh and if you complain about any of this, they’ll be pricks and claim you are misogynist woman hater because… well you know what I can’t and never will understand their insane ego-centric thought processes.
So it shouldn’t be surprising that I don’t find Asalieri’s choice to crap all over modern third wave feminism a bad idea since its an appropriate target, they do totally deserve every criticism and penalty they can get (sans death) and its also refreshing to see Eric Gaede spend time bashing something that completely deserves every criticism it gets.
Unfortunately Eric continues the tradition of “sticking it to my enemies regardless of how hypocritcal and non-self-aware I look” by not bothering to address his previous behaviours. Reviewers ADD also hits him heavy as he keeps flip-floping from being anti-feminist to playing video games to talking about #WTFU then back to making shitty RARs (which are really just thinly veiled insults towards people he doesn’t like at this point). It’s no surprise that Eric can’t keep an audience unless he’s causing drama but that won’t stop him from claiming that he doesn’t do drama or that everyone else is a just a drama queen. There’s been a large happening in his continued to crusade against Emer prevost but I’ll talk about that later.
Instead let’s view the maturity in which Eric Gaede tackles Third wave feminism.
Oh okay… he makes a character called Femfreq and then gets em killed. Well the goal was to get killed in that manner so I suppose that was okay…
I wonder if he does realize that’s a really depraved and pathetic way to act. You don’t see any of Eric’s detractors creating characters in multiplayer games called Eric Gaede and getting them killed. What made him think this was a good idea? Bonus points for this video coming right after his 1984’d video on how he doesn’t do personal attacks, drama or death wishes/fantasies.
So Eric starts the review with a misleading sequence in attempt at comedy where he acts angry that people keep taking movie classics and mangling them. The joke is that he is actually talking about another scene in a entirely different work called “legends of tomorrow” because it uses a scene that is highly reminiscent of Back to the Future. The problem is that mangling a movie classic would require remaking the movie and legends of tomorrow isn’t a remake nor does the scene in question plagiarize the back to the future scene as opposed to just appear similar. But hey humor isn’t his… well lot of things aren’t his strong set.
1:07 – 1:37
No seriously Eric attempts to pass of a 2013 event in U of T as a 2016 event reacting to James Rolfe’s recent decision to not address the new ghostbusters movie. There’s text and everything. “SJW reactions to a peaceful boycott of a movie online”. Yeah last time I checked it was SJW’s claiming that gamergate had time machines not the other way around Eric.
1:38 – 1:51 Eric shows the clip from AVGN’s video… yo numbnuts, this is the crap that gets you screwed for DMCA and youtube community guidelines. I thought you said don’t use other people’s clips?. Either way, AVGN’s clip contains the part where James says he won’t review ghostbusters because that would playing into the bile fascination. He figures that its going to suck so there’s no reason to contribute to its financial earnings.
1:52 “Quite right james” -Eric Gaede
Wait what? WHAT?
2:10 “tell the world you won’t support a shitty movie. god forbid you should incurr the wrath of dane cook feminist of the year”
You know its really sad when a guy who makes constant unfunny rape jokes is being totally accepted into the “feminist” community. What you were expecting me to criticize the quote? Sorry Dane cook sucks.
Nope no criticim here. Devin Faraci can go and meet the real ISIS and see just how much more respect he really does have for them. Because according to Devin, people who want you to demonstrate decency and respect for journalistic guidelines that you’re suppose to follow in order to earn money are obviously worst than terrorists who kill and behead innocent people.
2:50 “think about how sad it is that extreme third wave feminists are hinging their hopes on fucking ghostbusters”
*sigh* Eric you’re taking this way too far again. Third Wave feminists are unlikely to be using ghostbusters as a major attack. That would imply they actually have a vested interest in having the movie succeed. Its obvious that most Third Wave feminists are doing what they do because it lets them harass people while claiming victim status as well as write clickbait and make money by being contrarian. They obviously don’t care about the long-term effects and they never have. Why else would people continue to defend Anita Sarkesian repeatedly claiming she’s the sane most feminist voice around when all she does is take money and give none back? Because the clickbait makes money, contrarian is the best form of clickbait and its easier to be a feminist when you deliberately perform actions that exacerbate the negative perception of women and get people to care less about what happens to women.
3:07 Eric talks about the female fire fighters who helped out during 9/11 and how they did not receive recognition. He asks why third wave feminism doesn’t talk about them.
“yes let’s ignore the fact that the best they are hoping for to represent women is to retread ground that was already covered by men”
Well Eric I think you’ve already answered your own question. To third wave feminist anything a man can do a women can do better, that is essentially their motto. So it shouldn’t be surprising that they think that women can and should be better than the male ghostbusters. And of course I’ve already talked about their lack of long-term thinking so really… when are you going to apologize to AVGN about your frequent attempts to pin him as a harasser and a e-beggar?
3:30 Eric talks about how he was blocked by devin faraci
Eric… Third wave feminists are pushing for safe spaces because they wish to provide the impression that women are fragile and unable to take care of themselves with government intervention. One of the tools they push for is a blockbot that automatically blocks anyone based on a guilt by association algorithm. Odds are you were subscribed to people Third wave feminists hate like Sargon of Akkad. You would know this if you did a basic google search but hey whatever you don’t even know what they want much less how they operate. Oh and uh good work on not mentioning you’re repeated attempts to hurt AVGN while employing the same tactics and end goals that third wave feminists use.
Wow that sucked. Hopefully he talk about some other feminist in a proper manner.
0:00 – 0:35 Eric wastes half a minute telling viewers that the content will be annoying and that you should watch something else.
Well gee Eric you think?
0:38- 1:02 Eric says he found another feminist that spouts the “same” propaganda and refuse to debate. Unfortunately Eric makes a slip up and accidentally says “all feminists” which means you know, all of them, and thus accidentally insults every real feminist and not the joke third wave radicals that everybody hates. I would be offended but instead he decided to take a bunch of harpy pictures and shove them on screen. I have no idea what hapry has to do with third wave feminism. Harpies are known for their propensity for punishing people who have committed misdeeds. Third wave feminism will fuck you regardless of what you’ve done just cause they feel like it so I don’t understand the point of including those pictures.
1:17 Eric links to the artist’s tumblr page and gives their name too. Because harassment is a good idea and its also a good idea to not do something sane and keep the fuck away from insane people who like harassing others (I’m being sarcastic).
2:04 Eric begins reading comics really badly. This guy has the audacity to make fun of linkara while doing voices like this… *Sigh*. The first comic contains a joke where an individual says he is sick of political correctness and that everyone is thin-skinned; but the reply is that he should get thicker skin. At least I assume it was joke because that was fucking pathetic. Eric concludes this comic was a mouthpiece and since the author thinks people should grow thicker skins, that the author should grow thicker skin if they’re offended by Eric’s commentary.
I’m sad that Eric doesn’t tear the comic apart for being stupid. I mean the joke is that being angry at people being thin skinned is a form of being thin-skinned. That’s the joke. But the problem is that political correctness really is a problem, you can be fired from a major job just because people don’t like your shirt. You can have yourself severely financially penalized just for saying “rape”. You do not solve harassment by having the victim just accept the harassment. It would be nice if Eric just pointed this out… but sadly he does not.
2:32 Eric looks at a comic where a director says to wonderwoman states that female lead movies don’t make money the joke being that several characters that were female leads in their highly successful movies standing in the background. Eric says that artist is silly because IMDB says that there is a wonderwoman movie coming out.
Yo dumbass, that comic was made in 2015 possibly earlier. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2015/07/02/rebecca-cohen-feminist-illustrations_n_7713378.html
There was no news of a wonderwoman movie until recently. In addition it was unlikely that IMDB page existed back in 2015. Stop acting as if things you just found are suddenly new Eric. You did that last video its really shameful you did it again. Oh and if I were eric I’d tear this comic a new asshole by pointing out two of those characters is animated, and the one astronaut was in a succesful movie but not nearly as succesful as any male driven movie.
“Led by Sandra Bullock, “Gravity” grossed $269 million domestically, easily making it one of the most successful films of all time headlining an actress.” -http://www.goldderby.com/article/2014/cate-blanchett-oscar-speech-world-is-round-people-sandra-bullock-woody-allen-4738291506/
But then again I’m not Eric and I actually put effort into what I do so I guess it makes sense that Eric won’t bother to deconstruct the comic.
2:36 ” *eric shows a wikipedia page of films featuring wonderwoman* And there was a recent 2013 short film featuring [wonderwoman] too and of course all of these titles, thanks wikipedia”
Wow… okay Eric. What’s the difference between a real female and an animated one? Oh and neither of those movies featured wonder-woman in a predominate role. When they refer to woman driven movies they mean as the main fucking character not a goddamn side character. When feminists (third wave or not) refer to no female driven movies they are refering to live action movies with a female actor as the lead. DO you know how to properly portray the oppositions argument? Do you know how to do that Eric?
3:18 – 6:05 Eric reads a comic that poorly represents the Anita Sarkesian situation. The comic shows a lady saying, after a long and pointless amount of statements (such as saying that she has fled from her home, which is bullshit because Briana Wu and Anita Sarkesian are different people), that “video games aren’t perfect” at which point the audience says its heresy and blasphemy. Eric makes a bunch of analogies that are generally correct in that Eric says Anita has said much more than video game’s aren’t perfect (such as video games cause rapes and shootings) and in addition Anita has not received any real threats or danger.
This part is extremely good, Eric’s analogies are spot on and don’t miss the point. He properly deconstructs Anita’s behaviour (which is that she’s getting paid to run a narrative against gamers). So this means he must fuck up right… I mean seriously he does this alot?
6:15 “[Anita’s claims] which are now widely accepted as facts”
Wait what? Anita an accepted expert? By which sane scholar? But what police department? By what academic department? Even the UN threw this shit out the door when they saw it and they have countries not known for their human rights on their human rights council!
This is a strawman. The damage that Anita has done is bad, but its no where near as bad for gamers as it is for media, for woman trying to get in the hobby and the reputation of feminism.
6:30 to 8:00 Eric reads a comic that list a bunch of women that did things (that I’m not going to bother verifying because its pointless) and then argues that woman’s history month should be a thing. Eric then wastes a minute and a half talking about height handicapped people who did things and -then argues in favor of dwarf history month. Missing the entire point of the argument but what did I expect.
8:00 “Months dedicated to a race or gender are just such a stupid idea and don’t help people learn or give a crap about these people”
*sigh* Eric you’re the person that doesn’t even want people learning about basic science considering your stance on science and education in general. You don’t really care about informing people properly or even getting the full story. A month dedicated to a race doesn’t do anything if your as short sighted as Eric is but if you actually do care about things farther than your face then a learning month can be a springboard to ideas and understanding. That is of course assuming that people actually put effort into putting information out during that month and not be like Eric here and spread bullshit with the only occasional proper moment of good work.
8:30 Eric looks at a comic that has a man saying that a woman who only cares about woman is engaging in “reverse sexism” (woah that’s a dumb term). He states that feminists should be egalitarians since they care for all people. The woman replies that he is the reason she is a feminist (woah rude much?). Eric then promptly in a display of actual understanding and sense, properly deconstructs the comic as denoting that feminist only care for themselves and not for other men and that is a real problem. He notes that the female in the comic refuses to have her egocentric thought process questioned at all. Unfortunately Eric decides to say “being a feminist isn’t about empowerment or equality or any of that stupid nonsense. Its about entitlement”
Come on Eric all you had to say was “third wave” feminist you’d have avoided any strawmanning. Come on. So close. Ugh.
10:41 Eric reads a comic where a feminist says she belives society can be equal and that men are mature and compassionate only for another woman to come in and tell her that she must hate men because she identifies as a feminist.
Now if I were Eric I would decide to simply point out that the comic is hypocritical because the entirety of the author’s other comics do nothing but pretend that men have no compassion nor that men can understand or have maturity to tackle issues. The Author cannot pretend that men are suddenly capable of solving sexism and that feminism accepts men when the rest of the comics clearly demonstrate that men cannot be trusted and will attempt to kill people for daring to question video games or refuse to hire women even though it makes money or don’t want to learn about woman who did important things in history. The author has attempted to argue that feminism is not man hating when it makes so many assumptions about the average male that it might as well have engaged in man hating. Eric hasn’t been fucking up too much, let’s see how he handles it.
11:14 Eric decides to counter the comic by talking about things that other “feminists” have done such as arguing that women should be able to occupy seats with luggage while men cannot not, getting a man fired over a shirt and misrepresenting actual data such as the wage gap they keep lying about.
Wow that has nothing to do with the comic. Great job Eric, that strawman looks fucking fantastic. You’ve interpreted an argument against people thinking feminism is about man hating into an argument that defends cronyism, lying and harassing people for no real reason. Just like to remind Eric that I put “feminism” in quotes because third wave feminism does just as much to hurt women as it does to hurt men. It makes woman look like liabilities in the workplace (since they might accuse the employer of sexism if they’re fired or ruin other co-workers productivity due to rape accusations), it also silences them (many female gamergaters have had their opinions ignored and have been harassed too) and also makes light of real woman’s right issues (all of this discussion about western female rights is a major distraction from the absolute disaster is that is woman rights in middle east).
Sadly Erics off-topic and strawman rant continues for the rest of the video. It’s very hypocritical Eric that say the “feminists” argument is disingenuous when every argument he has ever made is disingenuous.
Oh and speaking of being disingenuous.
Let’s take a look at Eric’s response to Emer Prevost. Eric, wanting to demonstrate that he wasn’t butthurt over Emer leaving him, decided to make a 3 hour long rant session where he spill a whole bunch of accustations against Emer Prevost. Emer Prevost had the video taken down because it was harassment. Eric decided to make the video above and threw out accusations such as Emer not having a job (glass houses Eric…) and Emer being a self-centered douchebag (more glasshouses Eric). Eric refuses to believe that his constant poor behaviour was causing the relationship to deteriorate for 6 months but then again just like any “feminist” Eric doesn’t have self-awareness. Unsurprisingly the entire video is an insult to Emer Prevost demonstrating once again that Eric is only really interested in starting feuds as opposed to hurting people who actually deserve it (hmmm more parallels to “feminism”).
Finally, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that Eric complains about “Feminism” being self-centered and relying on censorship and misleading information while engaging the same tactics. Hopefully Eric and “Feminism” won’t team up in the near future.
Yeah sorry guys, I really wanted to take a look at Asalieri’s I’m not a drama queen video but he deleted it and no one bothered to make a mirror of it. What a shame.
From what I can gather. Asalieri received a game from Emer as a gift but Asalieri decided to pretend he was hot shit and start complaining repeatedly about every aspect of the game until Emer got fed up and apparently things escalated so badly that they broke up.
Now I’m not exactly sure who to root for here. So I’m not rooting for anyone. I don’t like Emer because as described in a previous article, Emer has issues putting out quality content and seems to enjoy being really really lazy and resorts to contrarian-ism to be relevant. If for some reason you missed that article then here it is:
I don’t like Asalieri because… really? Really that question is so easy to answer I’m going to be very brief. Asalieri is a drama-monger who enjoys bullying and harassing others especially if he feels they are doing better than he is. He frequently doesn’t think anything through and makes complaints that make no sense and then pretends those non-sense complaints are him “calling it like he sees it”. Given his frequency to “call it like he sees it”, I get the heavy impression he’s blind. Asalieri was a key proponent of the anti-e-begging movement (which is thankfully dead) that used E-begging as an umbrella term for asking for help in return for something than using the actual definition of E-begging (which is to ask without offering anything tangible in return). It doesn’t really surprise me that Asalieri is happy to have the youtube DMCA policies because while he will frequently complain about losing his old channel because he stupidly kept harassing JFreedan which included but was not limited to conspiring with Batdamn to attempt to illegally sue JFreedan in multiple courts. You can see the long list of evidence in many of the previous articles I have written on Asalieri.
The bolded article is the one most relevant to this discussion.
“I for one will work around their system and make it work for me” – Eric Gaede on the youtube copyright system
Yeah pretty sure you didn’t manage to get the system to work for you Eric. And no having the system screw over your competitors doesn’t count as having it work for you. You know in a lot of respects I see Eric as the crabs in a boiling pot of water. You see when a crab tries to leave a pot of boiling water, the other crabs will grab that one and prevent it from leaving.
So apparently Eric’s response to youtube copyright is “as long as it fucks over the people I hate I’m okay with it because I literally don’t do anything noteworthy at all”.
Well back to the break up… Sadly since the video’s gone I can’t really have much to comment about. In the alleged video, Eric stated that he was no drama queen (because making a video about losing your friend and repeatedly insulting him and stirring up controversy doesn’t make you a drama queen right Eric?) as well as continued to insult Emer. While I don’t like Emer because of his amoral behaviour (we need only look at his still constant attempts to slander AVGN and Channel Awesome to see that) with his poor work ethic just being the icing on the cake; I still feel as if maybe Eric could make a break for it and actually get something done. I often get the impression that Eric Gaede aka Asalieri had a very negative impression on Emer Prevost aka He11sing920. But then again for all I know maybe Eric and Emer became friends not because of a toxic relationship but because they’re both assholes. Hopefully them breaking up will be for the best and we will see less stupid ass bullshit from either of them in the future.
Well that was a short article… Guess I’m gonna have to do something else. 25% of you wanted to see more Randomdce stuff. But I also think I should cover the Asalieri WTFU video. For those who don’t know what WTFU is, its a movement against youtube’s crappy copyright system. The very system that’s so broken it can get people’s videos taken down for basically no reason other than someone complained. Eric’s no stranger for saying he hates youtube but then happily bends over and to take it in the rear.
But enough about Eric’s past history let’s take a look at the video.
0:00-0:10 “Alright I’m a go quasi-radio on this one. Time is of the essence and I’m not gonna go search for too many images for this one. Sorry about that. I don’t wanna waste too much time on this one”.
Okay for starters… go quasi-radio? Was there ever fucking point to any of the images you put on constantly on your show Eric. Most of time they’re just stupid shit that can and should get you a DMCA since you don’t do anything to the pictures to make your work transformative. But at least you’re saving calories by not bothering to do something pointless. You could save even more calories by not making this stupid video but hey you said you didn’t want to waste too much time but that means you’re okay with wasting time just as long as it doesn’t pass a certain threshold (because that would take effort).
I would probably remark about the concept that Eric clearly wants to rush through the issue and not actually discuss it. But I mean that’s to be expected. I mean it goes without saying…
0:35 Eric says that he’s making this video because his friend Gaming Goose (oh well that would explain why no one watches gaming goose anymore) made a WTFU video saying that the campaign was bullshit and “thousands of people” came in to harass anyone who didn’t “toe the channel awesome party line”
Eric If you’re gonna treat the issue with such obvious contempt without explaining yourself then I think we all know why you made this video. For the drama and contrarian-ism. Let’s take a look at the views here. For starters this video as of today has 6k views, still no where near Asalieri’s subscriber count of 9k but let’s take a look at the other videos. 1.2k, less than a thousand WAY less than a thousand… hmmmm, I wonder why this video is sensation bullshit when its clear that its only thing Asalieri actually bothers to do these days?
I also didn’t know that Channel Awesome counted as a political party as opposed to advocating common sense and creative freedom but hey its good to see you know exactly how to be pretentious. I also have to adore the fact that Asalieri has to play the victim here as if thousands of people saying you’re wrong and are just being contrarian for the attention are just mindless harassers. Given that the WTFU crowd easily numbers in the hundreds of thousands if this were true Eric’s video would have over 100k views and roughly over 100k dislikes. But that didn’t happen so the harassment narrative is bullshit. Let’s also ignore irony of Asalieri’s campaign against Anita Sarkesian while using the very same tactics he uses.
0:46 Eric says that people called him and gaming goose traitors for not agreeing with the hashtag. Eric says he disagrees with the hashtag because of the people, the motives and the hypocrisy.
No I agree with those people. Eric, you are on youtube. You complain about having lost your channel and frequently do illegal shit that’s not legal by youtube’s guidelines. You take content from other people’s videos and put it in yours. You take images that aren’t yours and put them in your video. By youtube guidelines the let’s plays you’ve resorted to doing would also not be legal. IT doesn’t matter if you don’t agree with the hashtag because you don’t like Channel Awesome or feel as if they’re hypocrites. You haven’t shown any indication that don’t enjoy bending over and letting youtube have its way with you. In fact you have explicited stated several years ago that this was exactly what you were okay with doing. You deserve to be called a traitor by stabbing the very people who are defending your right to make content in the back.
0:50 Eric displays a picture of Doug Walker in a M.Bison uniform and then puts the words blah blah blah muh money.
Hey Eric, I’m gonna ask this question again. You were angry because you lost 5 bucks in an online video game. You were angry because you couldn’t spend hundreds of dollars you already had on a new laptop and had to e-beg for it (under the actual definition of E-begging too). Why do you treat other people’s attempts to earn the money they have rightfully earned with such disdain?
1:00 Eric talks about Doug Walker’s motives… and by talks about motives I mean engages in sensationlist bullshit that falls apart on basic scrutiny. “His poor little chanly wanly got taken down like for what an hour?”
Okay Eric… Please take down your channel for one hour and see if you enjoy that. In fact I know you wouldn’t enjoy this because. Because an incident of similar bullshit happened to you (and you may very well have done it to yourself).
Here you got harassed for roughly an hour by people driving to your house and asking for free games on ad that was faked. In this video you gave several indications that you made the ad that caused your harassment (the first was having a grand speech prepared, the second was not doing something sensible like putting up a sign that said “ad is not real, someone faked it” and the third was taking the video down as well as actually showing your real address and of course the fourth would making the damn video because that encourages further harassment which you didn’t continue get showing that it wasn’t someone else trolling you). But the important part isn’t that you may have made the ad so you could moral grandstand but that you did not enjoy being able to do what you wanted to do for that hour or so you got harassed.
This is the same shit that happens to youtube content creators that fall afoul of youtube copyright laws. They lose a full hour or more to this bullshit that shouldn’t have even happened. This ignoring the fact that youtube copyright law may restore your channel within in the hour but you still lost profit and time to this shit. If people responded the same way Eric does to other people’s harassment then Eric’s video destroys itself. Instead of thinking about how sad it is for Content Creators to constantly deal with harassment from the DMCA, they’ll just make fun of it “because duh they just lost an hour durr hurr” wait a second… how I am supposed to feel sorry for Eric if that’s the thought process I’m supposed to have here?
“Duh Eric just lost his chanly wanly lol now all he has to do is make another one”. You know eric if you don’t want people being insensitive to you, you might want to try actually having empathy. To paraphase undertale, I know your not human but I enjoyed it better when you pretended to be one.
1:06 “funny, Doug has a history of abusing the youtube copyright system to take down people who upload clips of his show and whatever context they put it in”
So then wouldn’t Doug Walker not want to fix youtube copyright law so he could continue to do that? I don’t get what the fuck you are talking about now. You don’t enjoy his abuse of the youtube copyright law so you want to allow abuse of the copyright law by him again? He’s trying to make it so he can’t do that shit anymore. If you hate it than that’s a good thing. It’s a like a serial killer being against murder. Sure it’s hypocritical but what’s the alternative? Do you want the serial killer to go back to killing people because it keeps him consistent?
1:17 “Ask your friend AVGN, where back in 2011 he had mike matei copyright flag me for running a scathing commentary of his show”
Sure let’s go ask AVGN. Let’s go ask AVGN and where’s the fair use. Oh wait AVGN isn’t apart of that. Great strawman!
1:25 “Doug you’re a hypocite, you didn’t care about this stuff until it hit you in your wallet”
Uh Eric… get a dictionary.
“a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs.” -Definition of Hypocrite http://www.dictionary.com/browse/hypocrite
So Eric… where you can you point me to the part where Doug says he has always cared about the youtube community and has always been against DMCA? Apathy is not hypocrisy. Apathy is hypocrisy only when someone says they’ve never been apathetic. I’m sorry I don’t see what is hypocritical about only caring when you’re the victim of something which I should note isn’t true in Doug’s case because he’s been dealing with youtube bullshit for years now to the point that he made his own site and specifically said youtube bullshit was the reason why he made that site. Sure you can be a hypocrite if you don’t care about something unless it hurts you but only if you explicitly tell victims to fuck off and Doug has never acted as if people who got hit by DMCA had it coming or that the DMCA system was good. Hell the only person doing that seems to you Eric. You don’t care about WTFU at all, you just want to stick it to the people you hate and get drama views. You don’t actually care about the DMCA shit AVGN and Doug have done because you don’t want to the fix the system so they can’t abuse it to hurt you again even though you complain so much about their apparent misuse of it. The only hypocrite here is you Eric.
1:42 Eric says that #WTFU is for slacktivists.
Oh that’s rich coming from you Eric. Excuse me Eric. Let’s list the campaigns you were involved in and what they accomplished. Oh and harassment isn’t an accomplishment:

I guess when you are a slacktivist, you can only see other real activists as slacktivists. Oh and uh let’s ignore the fact that WTFU was acknowledged by youtube’s CEO and stuff.
1:47 “(in annoying voice) Let’s all whine over TFS and doug guys”
Hey Eric ever wonder why no one whined over your shit… its because TFS and Doug actually make good content. They make stuff that’s actually funny and doesn’t lead to harassment.
1:50 “Guys who whine who got their channels pulled for only a couple of hours”
…. Glass houses Eric…. Glass houses…
1:54 “and who surprise surprise all got reinstated”
Okay two things I want to point out here. Eric you have to date not gotten your old account back. That implies you actually did violate a rule and the fact that you will not point out the obvious fact that it was because you were actually harassing JFreedan. Getting your account reinstated means that you were wronged by the DMCA and yet no changes have been made to fix the constant sources of these wrongings. Second I’d like to the remind everyone that Eric enjoys giving out abuse but not taking any at all. Maybe if Eric was actually human, he’d have empathy and could realize that being wronged and having that wrong be corrected is still not better than never being wronged at all. Let’s also ignore the fact that there’s lost revenue and lost account privleges but hey Eric can’t shut up for more than an hour so I doubt he even understands the importance of not being able to do anything for several hours.
2:00 “But johnny two subs can go fuck himself. Youtube can’t ever pressure itself to give some nobody their channel back”
Uh Eric. There’s plenty of examples of low end youtubers getting their stuff back over DMCA claims. Heck Mr.Enter started out pretty damn small and he’s still able to fight DMCA claims. You have to remember that all these people you keep complaining about like AVGN, Nostalgia Critic, Team four Star all started small and they were dealing with DMCA back then too. But hey why fucking bother. Have another strawman.
2:10 “I was given 3 copyright strikes back in 2011 and like many smaller channels no one shed a tear over me”
Well that would be because you aren’t human Eric. I think at this point we’re at exhibit Z in terms of how non-empathic and ego-centric you can be.
2:17 “listen guys straight talk” [Puts an image of a middle finger on screen.
Oh great now you’re flipping off your audience. That’s great I’m totally listening to you. All the great mentors of history flip off their students when giving advice. Oh wait they don’t because they’re human.
2:19 “You want youtube to change”
Oh sweet here it comes. This isn’t going to disappoint. Eric did this several years ago he’s gonna do it again.
2:20 “Boycott youtube”
PFFFT HAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOD. OH MY SIDES.
So this is pretty much Eric’s argument. That we can’t do anything because we’re too weak to do anything. And now Eric you know why everyone hates you. Ever look at AVGN and Nostalgia Critic and wonder why they have hundreds of thousands of views while you barely get 500? It’s because they actually treat their audience with respect.
2:27 “the only way you’re gonna hurt a multi-million dollar corporation is to stop using their services”
Says the guy on youtube. Says the guy using those services right now. I’m expecting Nihilism soon.
2:36 “no hashtag is going to make youtube start employing human beings to run their flagging systems because that would be cost ineffective”
Hmmmm. Having robots that cause problems and make content creators protest and leave? Cost-effective
Or having humans that cost slightly more and prevent creators from getting fed up and leaving? Cost-ineffective in Eric’s stupid head
Or Shuttdown the DMCA system so that companies have to do their work and actually look for offending material so that youtube doesn’t have to pay for what companies are supposed to doing? Also Cost-ineffective in Eric’s stupid head.
Hmm I don’t know. I’m expecting Nihilism soon.
3:06 “They [Channel Awesome] want you to keep the relevant at a time where they’re popularity is waning”
Ah here’s the Nihilism. See everyone, Channel Awesome, TFS and all the other major youtubers are simply losing power and views. That’s why there so desperate to stop the DMCA because its totally not a problem. Because clearly they’re doing poorly despite no evidence to contrary. We should all go watch the good youtubers who are totally relevant like He11sing, Asalieri or Razorfist or Randomdce. They have the hundreds of thousands of views and make so much money that can sustain high production values. I mean just look at ASalieri’s high production values that he can afford to make this video. I mean just look at audio that sounds like it was made off a dollarstore microphone and if you listen closely you can probably hear Eric giving himself a blowjob. Well to be honest I don’t know, I can’t hear him giving himself a blowjob physically but I can tell he’s doing it because this is the stupidest shit I have ever heard.
This the narrative equivalent of doubling down. Instead of bothering to fight youtube, Eric just believes that no one can do anything and therefore you shouldn’t try anything or you’re just grasping for power and manipulating people. He’s so petty he ignores the fact that all these people are fighting to protect his stupid ass from this shit. Then again he did this when Angry Joe was against DMCA so I’m not surprised he’s doing this again. I just love how he brings up the bullshit that Channelawesome is failing and irrelevant. Yes Because that thesis you brought up several years ago that predicted an imminent collapse is still valuable several years past its due date.
3:15 “the fight isn’t real, These Two have more common interests than you might think [this is written on the screen]”
Like what Eric? Like what? Don’t just write this shit on the screen and expect people to suck it down their throats without thinking. Are you honestly trying to have a discussion here or are you just making propaganda. Oh wait I already the answer.
3:20 “none of these people care for my interests or your interests”
Yes Eric mention “my interests” first before “your interests” because clearly your needs come before everyone else’s. Oh and what do you mean they don’t care about your interests? DMCA affects everyone dumbass.
3:23 “they only care about their own bottomline [insert another picture of Doug in Bison costume running off with a bag of money]”
And….? No seriously. Let’s assume that was true. Why should we not get rid of DMCA? Why not? Let’s go back to the serial killer example. The reformed Serial killer doesn’t want to kill people anymore because she hates going to jail. It’s an entirely selfish need. So I guess we should just get the serial killer to start killing people again because hey its selfish to not want to go to jail. Same thing here. I guess we should let DMCA run free to fuck everyone because some people apparently are selfish? Nice strawman.
You gamergate, I gamergate, she gamergates, he gamergates. Okay a lot of you are either one of three things on the subject that is gamergate:
1. You’re actively rooting for a side, pro or anti. Though at this point rooting for anti is equivalent of saying “I don’t like games and I wish they’d stop existing”.
2. You don’t care about the issue or just watch it for the lulz (lots of stupid statements to the point that there would be years of stupid statement dance remixes if only twitter could hold voice messages)
3. You’d wish you could care but the media blackout and propaganda campaign makes you think both sides are evil or something.
Regardless of your stance (P.S I might as well be pro-GG at this point) you’d be surprised to know that Eric is actually pro-GG though I should note that he has not explicitly picked up the banner. Though honestly if he did actually try that he’d have his ass blown off by the pro-GG anti-harassment patrol. Heck the most extremist elements that were with pro-GG when it started got their asses blown off and left. Internet Aristocrat could be considered an extremist, since his plan was to quite literally get people fired and collapse the reviewers (probably, he never actually listed the full action plan). His work was good for early gamergate related material (you need to remember that professionals who should be covering this are corrupt jackasses who care more for $$$ than the actual truth) but his work always kind of stuck me as off putting. Take a look at the first 10 seconds or so of this video and let me know if you can see what I mean.
“Sex for favors, Secrets and coverups, corruption. I know things that will blow your mind…” – Internet Aristocrat’s video
Now you might have noticed 2 things:
1. The video is from a reupload meaning the original uploader, internet Aristocrat has gone into hiding and protip: it wasn’t anti-GG that made him stop.
2. That was a very sensationalist intro that may very well hit the definition of yellow journalism.
Now you could overlook that as Internet Aristocrat taking things in jest after all this is a light and only soon to be major controversy that people thought would end with just a few people fired/pay cut and the world moves on… you know anything other than a 4+ month media siege trying to convince the public that their womanz are in danger or something in the gaming industry. Unfortunately not only did Internet Aristocrat underestimate the size and conviction of the pro-gg community, he also didn’t quite understand why he was getting flak from pro-GG members. He got sick of being questioned and put under basic scrutiny and rage quited, see his rage quit message below.
Seen by 22k of a hundred thousands strong consumer revolt. Epic fail…
In the video, if you aren’t already laughing at how much internet aristocrat overstated his importance, Internet Aristocrat complains that people weren’t extremist enough and uses buzzwords like patreon, kickstarter and e-begging… you know the same overused bullshit that only works on stupid people who don’t actually know how commerce works. Other important things to note was Internet Aristocrat’s (also known as Jim) use of slut-shaming. Now slut-shaming is very specific accusal in that anyone who slut-shames is considered a jerk for focusing on a person’s sex life and uses that person’s sex life to shame a given individual. This is of course used wrong by anti-GG because the existence of a person’s sex life is made known not to shame the individual but to point out that media outlets are going out of their (often uncharacteristically) way to hide a person’s sex life. If you don’t understand what slut shaming is then take a look at these two arguments:
Slut-Shaming “Zoe is a big fat jerk because she slept with Tom” (note Zoe is just a name, especially since ZOE Quin a real character in this event known as gamergate, is just an alias for a real person anyway)
Note how in this response, Zoe is considered a big fat jerk simply for choosing to have sex with Tom. This is slut-shaming.
Not Slut shaming “Zoe is a big fat jerk because she calls favors for positive press from Tom the reporter who complies because she had sex with him”. This is not slut-shaming because Zoe is considered a big fat jerk for using inside relationships to get ahead in her professional life. The having sex part is not the part this considered shameful, it is the unfavorable rendering of services in exchange for the sex that is considered a shameful display. In fact sex isn’t even necessary for this accusation to work, if Tom repeatedly shows preference towards Zoe in coverage even when he should not then its clear Tom is behaving unprofessionally.
How would you feel if you wrote an essay that would have made headlines and gotten awards but instead some idiot who wrote overly emotional crap got all the attention and the awards? I don’t think you’d like that very much. But the conundrum here is that the very people who promoted the idiot have the ability to silence you and completely ignore your story if you so much as step against them. You might be wondering why so few game companies and developers have stepped out against the journalists to do anything of any sort. The easy answer is that doing so is the best way to commit financial suicide. No journalists means no marketing and considering how many journalists have been indicted in the gamergate scandal, I wouldn’t be surprised if every gaming journalist was corrupt. It’s hilarious how the situation has somehow become something you’d see in a crackpot conspiracy movie.
Heck the corruption is really REALLY blatant. Here’s a journalist quite literally giving free advertising for Rockstar games (http://www.alienpickle.com/2015/01/journalists-what-not-to-do.html?m=1). Now let me remind you that critics do not get paid by the people who make the works they critique as that would represent a conflict of interest as it prevents uncensored critique. This would be equivalent to getting paid by a car company to look at their own faulty car design. If you tell the truth and ban the design for being faulty… well you’re not getting paid because the car company will stop paying you. If you lie then well you’re screwing over the consumer, the people who you’re supposed to be helping. The issue here is that most journalist care more about the benefits from being a patsy of the corporations and want to trick people into giving them ad revenue via clickbait to essentially double dip (you get money for being a corrupt jackass and money for tricking people) their income. And perhaps the biggest consequence is that you must be friends with the journalists or you’ll get negative press, essentially ensuring that you must give into the racketeering scheme if you want to be successful.
case in point. One person makes a game that they don’t like, canceled! A friend makes the same game? Totally acceptable. How many letters are in the word ‘corruption’ again?
Now at this point you’re probably wondering when I’ll talk about Asalieri. Well the important first is to establish why gamergate is such an important subject and how much effort you need to put in to treat this subject with the respect it deserves. Gamergate has been called “dead” a countless number of times by now and yet it still goes on and it doesn’t help that most gamers who realize how messed up their information’s media is have played dark souls (a game where you are a dead guy/girl and you never ever give up). So before I go see how Asalieri did on the issue, let’s take look at the common narrative that has been pushed against gamergate and see why this situation is so important and why its so problematic that the professionals are behaving like 5 year old sore losers who refuse to fire themselves even when they clear contempt for their jobs. This will take the format of Q and A
1. Q: The media frequently claims that gamergate is a harassment movement that is dedicated to keeping women out of the gaming industry. Gamergate has been accused of sending numerous death threats and has been accused of being ISIS, aka terrorists. So what does this mean?
A: Alright I’ll list the names of women who have been specifically targeted by gamergate. LW1, LW2, LW3. Not using code names for literally who 1, 2 & 3; their names are Zoe Quinn (an alias), Brianna Wu and Anita Sarkesian. 4 months is how long gamergate has been going. This is the worse harassment movement ever! Like wow, 3 women harassed? None of which have provided anything worthwhile to the industry? Zoe Quinn made one game that is a crappy text adventure that goes nowhere. Brianna Wu made a crappy mobile game that literally no one knows what the hell it even is. And last but not least, Anita Sarkesian has a confusing, hypocritical narrative about “male privilege” that seems all to similar to the “video games are satan” arguements you’d get from xenophobes and technophobes in the 90s and the research skills of Irate Gamer. Meanwhile any female developer who speaks in favor of gamergate gets harassed and sales of their work sabotaged by anti-GG members; who I should note never get called out by their own side (https://twitter.com/untimelygamer/status/537446450352115713). But let’s take a break from misogyny angle (or as gamergate members joking refer to as muh soghy knees), and let’s take a look at the terrorist accusations. There have been zero correct traces of bomb threats to real GG members. The only connection that exists is “an anonymous person made the bomb threat” and “pro GG members can be anonymous” and of course you’d have to ignore the ever wonderful “innocent until proven guilty” stuff to make this accusation. I could quite literally claim you the reader did the bomb threat or Ben Wagner did it or Irate Gamer did it and it would just as valid (that is to say… not at all) as blaming gamergate. Not helping matters is the fact that the bomb threats in question were not real and let’s face it death threats are a dime dozen, treating them with legitimacy gives the perpetrator what they want. Especially if you are Anita Sarkesian who travels with a male bodyguard squad at all times while preaching about damels in distress being really really bad.
But wait so what’s all this fearmongering about? Why is gamergate still called terrorists, hatemongers and unreasonable? I mean let’s define terrorism for a moment okay. Terrorism is the use of violence or intimidation for political gain where political gain can be defined as any action that the user of terrorism wishes to have performed. So for example, if Evil mcjackass says he will kill 20 kids unless you read 20 really crappy clickbait articles, that’s terrorism. But terrorism doesn’t just mean threats, terrorism also means the use of intimidation so that would also mean that Evil Mcjackass would have to prevent discussion and prevent people from thinking things through, generally by causing as much panic as possible. Nothing Pro-GG has done even relates to terrorism as none of their actions can be seen as censorship. The closest could be denying ad revenue by asking sponsors to cancel their contracts but that’s not censorship as opinions are still allowed to be expressed its not as if not being sponsored by pepsi, or bandai or ‘whatever’ company prevents you from saying what you believe is necessary. IT could cause bankruptcy but that’s a financial consquence and it still doesn’t stop anyone from saying things or writing crappy articles. So pro-GG hasn’t committed terrorism, even though terrorism is a very diverse meaning and alot of actions can be ascribed under the term terrorism. But what about Anti-GG, are they using intimidation tactics?
As seen in the above link: Reddit discussion in which nearly every comment attempting to discuss the situation was shadowbanned. A shadowban is a hidden type of ban that bans the user but doesn’t inform them thus essentially locking and censoring that user from ever talking to anyone else. It’s like solitary confinement, on the internet, except this time you didn’t murder anyone or commit a criminal offense. Shadowbanning is reserved for bots because bots spam messages but aren’t human and contribute nothing to reddit other than spam and thus shadowbanning a bot would prevent the owner of the bot from realizing his bot was shutdown. So essentially a reddit moderator just used their power in the most illicit and underhanded manner possible to intimidate and prevent discussion about an issue.
But hey that’s just one instance of intimidation and censorship. Surely this wasn’t a “coordinated” effort by corrupt assholes to silence the masses? I mean a woman got harassed, sure that’s bad but no need to call the fucking army right?
Well that’s not… right. Surely its a bit… overboard to call an entire identity dead because some people wanted to understand why game developers are not being critiqued properly? But you know maybe that’s a coincidence, after all its possible that 12 different news outlets that should be competing against each other, and not parroting each other because that’s not how competition works; probably just came to the same stance at the same time and to do so in a fashion that violates the right to associate. After all its not intimidation if you outright yell that you’re opposed to anyone who’s interested in discussing the issue and have every major face do it at the same time? Right…? RIGHT!? *calms down* Okay so let’s take a look at reporters and writers who don’t toe the line and write things about how the industry should not be trying to milk the consumers dry with crappy broken products lest we stupidly cause a second video game crash via corruption (you’d be surprised how many historical “crashes” are caused by corruption, pro-tip: just about all of them). Here’s writer Benjamin Quintero asking “when did this become media vs consumer?”.
Well than I propose that there must be a secret cabal of like-minded hypocritical douchebags mostly from some dumb overpopulated american city that organizes this stupidty in the hopes that americans are too fucking stupid to notice or care; surely this overly narrow superlative mustn’t exis…
So the media is trying to fear monger by claiming people will get hurt going so far as to compare non-violent protestors as terrorists while lying about harassment and bomb threats just so they don’t have to show accountability (because they’d probably suck at that too). They have even managed to get people demoted and fired (look it up) and have harassed several organizations that literally meet the definition feminism (star dock games, TFYC) all in the name of an ideal that even they don’t really support (kinda like certain… religious driven violent groups I might add). I’m sorry who are the terrorists here? You might want to run that one by me again media and anti-GG. Oh and don’t even get me started on what’s happening on wikipedia or the constant attempts to take actions in the name of women but without their consent.
Q: The origins of gamergate are Zoe Quinn therefore its about the harassment of Zoe Quinn
A: 4 months and on-going, many many data sheets that show Zoe Quinn (or LW1) is not a major hashtag, genetic fallacy. Next
Q: But what about us who want to talk about video games being bad for people?
A: Not to be rude but that debate has long since come and gone. Science does not support any anti-gaming theory nor and real proof that video games cause crime, misogyny or traffic accidents. In fact video games can make people feel bad for killing people http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24950172. Sorry but as much as I am pro-debate, the debate as whether video games are evil… is kinda like solipsism (look it up), its not really worth discussing because its too new, too little research, and relies too much on wide speculation that is only philosophically correct… in other words a dead end.
Not helping matters is that the discussion is pretty much a distraction technique to get money.
I mean let me ask you this, do you want to talk about women’s problems/issues when all that does it waste time and let crooks get away with scamming people, thereby essentially making women into a human body shield for these jerks, or do you want to talk about women’s issues because you care. Because you honestly do care then I’m sure you can wait until the crooks have been busted. Women were more than happy to wait for hundreds of years to get the right to vote, so I’m sure there’s no hurry or urgent need to be reckless and needlessly confrontation when it comes to women’s issues.
Q: So then why is gamergate important?
A: the first game industry crash occurred because people could not tell one game from the other. I mean sure there are game covers but the games themselves… how the fuck would you know what was fun and what wasn’t? There were no game reviewers back then so you literally could only rely on word of mouth and faith to buy your products. Eventually you’d buy one too many scam games, clone games (games that are too similar to another), or games that just plain sucked. Sturgeons law is that no matter how much work is generated in a field and I paraphrase here “99% of what exists will suck” and that’s true because let’s face it, you’re reading this blog post right now and not the 99% of other blog posts that exist right now. So without critics how will you find the 1% that doesn’t suck? Well back then there was no way, say hello to the crash. Consumers gave up on gaming, gaming died and people went home to watch movies and listen to music, which do have working and non-corrupt critics and reviewers. It would take the legendary effort provided by nintendo and many others to get the industry to where it is now (where it can potentially even eclipse music and video industry in terms of worth). The only thing preventing another crash is the faith of the consumer and the reviewers who are supposed to be making sure that the faith of the consumer isn’t abused and lost. But look at what’s happening now, we’re getting shitier games, less innovation, more day one DLC, less quality assurance and are even expected to lay down cash to get games we want made, and it probably will suck even then. If this doesn’t change than a second crash will occur and we can say goodbye to gaming for a long long while. Bonus points for last articles previous subject, the boogeyman (aka gamer misogynists), being the reason why no change occurred.
Q: Can we talk about Asalieri now?
A: Absolutely! Now that we’ve established a good deal of what gamergate is and why its important, let’s take a look at how Asalieri treats this important and rather critical subject! Now you might be wondering whether or not I should bring up his history and disqualify him right on the spot. After all Eric has faked his own harassment, called for the harassment of many people who didn’t deserve it, repeatedly mishandles and sensationally uses evidence, and has repeatedly shown he can’t critique and can’t take critique. But I won’t because let’s face it, a liar who says that “2 + 2 = 4” is still correct and it would be a heinous misconduct to not let Asalieri have a chance to express himself. That said, the second he fucks up… well you’re gonna see a list of things he’s done that is in no way exhaustive.
So let’s take a look at his latest video concerning gamergate. ABC vs gamers.
0:00 “so I arrive a little late to the party but in case you haven’t heard by now, ABC has out and out declared war on gamers”
0:24 Eric notes that ABC is censoring comments on the video. Eric also says “People like to give Fox *Shows Fox logo* a ton of crap for their onesided coverage of any topic but ABC has proven they are just as bad maybe even worse *Fox Logo gets absorbed by ABC logo*”
hmmm surprisingly good analogy there. I mean literally I can’t see anything wrong with this. Even good imagery. Keep it up Eric.
0:36 “when you start a report with *Show’s ABC clip of anchor pretending virtual violence to women is important* you can pretty much expect nothing but sensationalism from there on out”
Surprisingly good observation. Eric what the hell is wrong with you? Where’s the dick dastardly? Where’s the suddenly very unfair and non-sense critique? Did you get someone else to write this script? Did you fire the other person who wrote the previous scripts?
1:00 Eric talks about how he wanted to make a song (apparently part 2) pertaining to how many female characters there are in video games and how they aren’t simple novelties but states that he had to make this video because the ABC report ‘rubbed him the wrong way’.
While I’m pretty sure given Eric’s singing talent and song writing skills the song would suck I still have to admit that this video Eric’s made here is much better call than a pointless non-memorable song about video game characters. Gosh Eric is a on roll with the good decision making. When tasked with the decision between “Rational video and probably annoying and tasteless song” Eric made the right choice.
1:20 Eric talks about how ABC interviews would completely one-sided and how they gave the spot-light to two professional victims who “make money hand on foot advertising their alleged constant harassment which somehow forced them to ‘somehow skip town'”.
Oh come on Eric you’re on a roll here don’t fucking do this. Don’t make an egotistical comparision aka appeal to Ethos that will backfire because you’re massive hypocrite who keeps taking their extreme opinions too far to the point of posing the extreme opinions as a matter of fact.
1:29 “Ladies, I’ve had death threats too! I’ve been harassed online, falseflagged, insulted and even harassed in real life simply as a result of having a slight modicrum of notoriety online. This isn’t something you can chalk up to just gamers do this to just these two specific women. To do so is to disregard people who have gone through 100 times worse than what these two horrible people have.”
FOR FUCK’S SAKE ERIC stop trying the Ethos argument. You have not gone through any amount of actually severe harassment. You are a karma houdini in that department. The crap you’ve done, the extremist rioting you’ve attempted to incite, the many many times you’ve claimed that you’re own stupid mistakes were the fault of “haters” is beyond belief. How many times have you, Eric Gaede, labeled someone an E-begger just for having a patreon or having a kickstarter? How many times have you claimed that the high dislike ratio on your videos due to poor taste (like putting a long video of an animal being brutally murdered while voicing over it as if you like one-sided murder) was the fault of haters. This got so bad that you accused nytro, one guy, of botting to get dislikes on your video. You’ve been caught stalking other people, and even e-begging yourself (and by the actual definition of e-begging too). You’ve frequently spread information that is completely non-viable, such as the idea that AVGN was stealing kickstarter money or that TGWTG was crucifying people. You don’t get harassment because you have a slight modicrum of notoriety; you get harassment because you are an asshole with a very inflated sense of entitlement and ego. Oh and death threats? You’ve sent more of those than you’ve received Eric and you’ve taken even less interest in apologizing especially when you promised an apology to certain people. The only plus I have to say about this segment is that when you say “100 times worse” you don’t specifically say that you are one of those people. Baby steps eh Eric?
2:00 Eric imagines that if everyone sold their victim-hood for money everybody would be rich.
Except that if everyone is rich, economics 101 would dictate that everybody would be poor… huh…
2:33 Eric plays a clip from ABC showing heavily escorted Anita is. He notes that no credible threat exists and that it is “all hollywood”
Would love to make a callback to certain, faked harassment that involved people driving up to Eric’s house but Eric is right, Anita definitely doesn’t need a bodyguard. Anybody who kills her would just be proving Anita right and then she’d be a martyr and videogames would be vilified.
2:39 “Where are the rioters *REALLY LOUD*, they’re there, They’re There. You gotta believe *plays clip that just shows the parappa character dancing and saying he’s gotta believe*”
Only thing I have to say is… please for the love of god fix your audio. I should not have to playing musical chairs with the volume control to avoid having my eardrums get blown off. Also you should just show the character saying he’s gotta believe, there’s no reason to have 5 seconds of him dancing before hand.
3:16 Eric notes that the narrative is really skewed and notes the illogical connection between video games and murdering women for being women.
Not much to say here. It’s pretty solid, not looking forward to how Eric fucks this up.
3:38 Eric notes that all the threats (bomb, death, rape) are all fake and non-credible. Eric correctly notes that bomb has not been found and that a bomb threat would be worst (not the rape threat) because a bomb can kill multiple people and cause serious damage to buildings.
3:44 Eric notes that all the cops are laughing and barely taking their job seriously because they know nothing is going to happen. Eric then notes that crime could be happening all over the city and there would be less cops to deal with it because they’re busying catering to Anita’s paranoia.
4:30 Eric notes that ABC describes GTA 5 as a game where you can take a hooker and then kill her “and if that’s not enough, you have the option to run her over”. Eric doesn’t note that killing a hooker would be way worse than running her over and thus doesn’t go on a rant about how out of touch with reality the ABC coverage is. Eric does note that GTA 5 does not have a hooker centered story and that the game doesn’t really reward hooker killing especially once the cops show up. Unfortunately Eric decides to call hookers whores throughout the entirety of this rant…. Sigh because the difference between a sex worker and a lady who doesn’t keep her relational commitments just doesn’t exist in Eric’s mind. At least the commentary he’s making still works… baby steps.
5:01 Eric plays a mario 1up sound effect when the hooker gets ran over in first person driving.
5:26 Eric then plays the part of ABC coverage that talks about how women are killed in watchdogs to motivate the main character. Eric then shows images of a black guy getting shotgunned in the face (the black guy is armed) while talking about how the character who is killed to motivate the main character is randomly generated and can be a guy in some cases. My only problem is that Eric just shows the pictures of an armed black guy getting shot-gunned, that doesn’t illustrate that the character who is to be killed is a randomly generated. While what Eric says is true, he could at least back up his work with real evidence, he has the time to edit in video clips so why not show a clip from some let’s play or something (give credit where due) that shows a male character being the victim. Oh well it could be worse, Eric could be wrong and not show evidence.
5:37 Eric shows a clip where ABC news attribute the wrong games to the wrong logos, with watchdogs appearing behind the rockstar logo and GTA 5 appearing behind Ubisofts logo. Wow Eric actually found a flaw using abstract logic and communication skills. That’s a first folks.
6:05 Eric shows a clip where ABC says they have yet to receive a replay from rockstar games. Eric notes that there is no reason for Rockstar to reply since ABC clearly aren’t playing the game and ABC don’t represent the gaming audience and instead represent professional victims. Eric says that ABC isn’t giving Rockstar a fair review before giving out sensational report on them…. kinda like what you do eh Eric? Oh I’m sorry that’s uh kinda uncalled for. Apologies
6:11 Eric says that Tim Schafer is an asshole who used to be cool. Eric also hopes Tim gets what’s coming to him.
6:33 Eric shows a clip of Anita saying that video games enforce negative messages about women and Eric replies by saying that not how things work. OH and he decides to show a picture of Rudolf Hess wearing an ABC armband. Because clearly we needed god-win’s law especially in a situation where incompetence would be a better explanation than nazism. Sigh one step forward, Sixteen steps off the cliff.
7:16 Eric plays a full clip of Penn and Teller’s report on video games (even citing it too) that shows a kid playing games and not liking guns. Wow good research from Eric… OH CRAP here comes the dick dastardly moment doesn’t it?
7:55 “A lot of you are probably not going to like what I’m about to propose”
8:02 Eric says that sensationalism and disinformation is why society is against marijuana. Here’s the quote
“is the reason we ended up with a society completely uninformed and totally against marijuana. A substance that has never killed a single person on the planet, but which only took one long campaign of disinformation to educate several generations about how evil and dangerous it allegedly is, all it takes is for this kind of narrative to pervade every inch of our media, to end up with a society that sees any and all video-games as evil and dangerous. Food for thought?”
No Eric not for food for thought you sensationalist, egocentric, fearmongering asshole. What does Marijuana have to do with this at all? Marijuana is not the only drug that gets demonized especially since the war on drugs is still ongoing (the policies are still in place) and it should be noted that while Marijuana has not directly caused a death that doesn’t mean it something you should just handing out to your kids and start puffing away. Marijuana still causes memory impairment during intoxication. It’s also bad for children who’s brains are still developing.
“There’s no proof that smoking marijuana causes lung cancer like cigarettes do. But people who smoke pot do show signs of damage and precancerous changes in their lungs, especially if they also smoke cigarettes. And a study published in 2013 in Cancer Causes & Control found that heavy marijuana smoking might raise the risk of lung cancer.” – http://www.webmd.com/news/breaking-news/marijuana-on-main-street/is-marijuana-safe-web
“Research shows marijuana may cause problems in daily life or make a person’s existing problems worse. Heavy marijuana users generally report lower life satisfaction, poorer mental and physical health, more relationship problems, and less academic and career success compared to non-marijuana-using peers. For example, marijuana use is associated with a higher likelihood of dropping out of school. Several studies also associate workers’ marijuana smoking with increased absences, tardiness, accidents, workers’ compensation claims, and job turnover.” – http://www.drugabuse.gov/publications/drugfacts/marijuana
“Cannabis can harm your mental health. Regular use is associated with an increased risk of developing a psychotic illness, such as schizophrenia. A psychotic illness is one where you experience hallucinations (when you see things that aren’t really there) and delusions (when you believe things that aren’t really true). Your risk of developing a psychotic illness is higher if you start using cannabis in your teens and if you have a family history of mental illness. Cannabis use has also been shown to increase the risk of a relapse in people who have schizophrenia, and could make existing symptoms worse.
Cannabis may affect your fertility. Research done in animals suggests that cannabis can disrupt sperm production in males and ovulation in females.
If you are pregnant, cannabis may harm your unborn baby. Research suggests that using cannabis during pregnancy could affect your baby’s brain development. Regularly smoking cannabis with tobacco is associated with an increased risk of your baby being born small or premature.” – http://www.nhs.uk/livewell/drugs/pages/cannabis-facts.aspx
Look I can understand that legalizing Cannabis can be a good thing, after all its not as toxic as other drugs and its rare for Cannabis to be considered the defacto cause of death again due to its lack of toxicity. But it is beyond unethical to state that this hallucinogenic drug does not post an risks and can’t hurt people. It’s called a drug for a reason, even caffeine is a bitch to deal with. A drug is anything that influences your state of mind or causes an immediately change in your body. There is no drug that doesn’t come with complications. of some sort. It also doesn’t help that scientific studies for marijuana are too new and far from conclusive as to whether or not marijuana is safe. But hey why am I even bothering to give a rundown on marijuana, its pretty obvious that mentioning out of nowhere is a severe misconduct on Eric Gaede’s part.
I get it Eric you strive to be dick dastardly by stupidly handicapping yourself at the end of every good point (and sometimes without making any good points at all). Eric, you also love drugs so I’m not surprised you wanted to get your drug abuse on. What really pisses me off here is how Eric can claim to take a stand against sensationalism and fearmongering and then immediately invoke it dick dastardly style to completely destroy and credibility or points he was trying to make. No eric, if the entire media decides to adopt a fearmongering narrative, society will not allow itself to be intoxicated with stupidity. There’s plenty of studies that show roughly 60% of people don’t trust the news or even think its accurate (http://www.globescan.com/news_archives/bbcreut_country.html#UK); in fact that number has risen to roughly ~80% as recent studies show (http://www.gallup.com/poll/171740/americans-confidence-news-media-remains-low.aspx). The gaming industry might have another crash but that’s more of financial consequence that screws over the development of new games not the gamers who can still get games that exist. Gamergate is the perfect example of how people don’t bow down to the media regardless of how many outlets join in on it. In the gamergate scandal, its pretty clear by now that every major media outlet in gaming has gone corrupt, instead of this being the end and gamers just living with the paradox of being dead yet somehow being alive; this lead to the rise of new name game enthusiast sites like gamesnosh, techraptor and so on and so forth. And last but not least, ERIC you are the LAST person who gets to talk about how we should fight against disinformation and fear-mongering when that is exactly what you do and what you did right now. Should I bring up how you said most repro-cart makers don’t deliver on their stuff without even ordering from them? Should I bring up that you did the aforementioned subject on repro-cart makers to shill out for your own friends, Leigh Alexander style? How about you stating that youtube is going to have an apocalpyse (and you shilled out for friends in the same video) and that you think you’re a martyr?
How about poor research skills all around? Like saying Alpha Omega Sin doesn’t use copyrighted footage or gameplay? How about saying that Linkara doesn’t know anything about comic books? You can’t stand against sensationalism, disinformation and poor research while still doing it Eric!
Which brings me to the title of this article (ha 6000 words in). What is character? Character is not what you do while everybody is looking, its about what you do when you think no one will stop you. It’s what you do when no one is looking. Gamergate has faced biblical levels of temptation.
Imagine if you are a gamergate person. Imagine that you area a gamer who supports games and just found out that Phil Fish won the indiecade by cheating. You also are extensively aware of the long history of corrupt journalism such as doritosgate, starcontrol 3 and other things only gamers would know.
For starters, every gamergate member is anonymous, unless they chose otherwise (at which point they’d be compromising their security). This means that quite literally anybody could get in on the harassment and start hacking away. Who’s going to care if you write “I’m gonna rape that bitch” 52k times on twitter?
To add to this, there’s people just literally goading and outright asking to be attacked. ABC news should honestly know better than to let someone who has no feminist credentials speak uncontested. Briana Wu has been allowed repeatedly to say she represents all female developers everywhere. If someone boasts, you can’t shoot me, and then get shoot and killed, who’s going to feel sorry for them? It’s ever so tempting to do what people have literally been setting you up for.
But that’s not enough temptation, no there’s even more, We have entire media claiming that your identity doesn’t exist anymore, that you’re not a person; that right of association doesn’t exist anymore. Feel like violating the peace now? There are people who have killed when their rights weren’t even been infringed on. But you’re rights have just literally been infringed on, there are loud mouthed CEO’s who say they’ll fire anyone with the hobby gaming. You’ve been declared an unperson.
Still not done yet BTW, more idiots join the fray, idiots who start a stupid board that counters your movement. You maintain that you want to treated like a human and that you don’t deserve to be harassed because Journalists don’t want to be ethical. Well these idiots fire back by just pretending everything is A-Okay. Its okay that you’re being harassed, for you see you are a misogynist. Of course they can’t prove it since they literally don’t know anything about you but its okay because they hate you and that’s all they need to commit libel. It’s fine for them to repost child porn but if you point out that a website doesn’t post child porn than it means you like child porn apparently. Nothing makes you want to get violent than the idea that you are the only sane person around. An opposition that literally exists to behave like jackasses with such a smug sense of superiority that they’re literally surprised when they’re not the majority (Gamerghazi) with such logical disconnects in their own brains that they think they are fair and just for literally banning any positive discussion about your movement. OH and it turns out that gamerghazi might very well be mocking the real-life death of a eve-online player during a terrorist attack on a US consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. Still not tempted to violence? Some of the Gamergate anti-Harassment patrol members quit because they were tired of defending people who were so stupid. Yet others continue to do the job, because people are people to them.
The temptation ain’t over yet, the journalists who are accused of being shady? Yup, they start acting like gibbering morons. “Bring back bullying” says Sam Bibble thinking all gamers are nerds yet not realizing that as a games journalist he should be a gamer too. David Gallant says that “any gamergate supporter will not get my game (paraphrasing) even if they’ve paid for it”. Backed the mighty no 9 kickstarter? Well enjoy having your paid for access revoked because of your political leanings. Watch as journalists prove you right by saying “Who hasn’t slept with a developer #AmIrite?” or as the guardian gets tips from a journalist who introduces themselves with #killallmen. Get wonderful excuses such as ‘Nathan Grayson did not have a conflict of interest with Zoe Quinn, he just said really nice things about her game, is in the credits for the game and is still friends with Zoe Quinn”. Don’t feel violent yet, don’t worry, seeing everything that made you right get ignored by every journalist who should be doing fucking job couldn’t possibly make you angry.
Then last but possibly not the last temptation, we have ‘big name’ youtubers like thunderfoot and internet Aristocrat. Thunderfoot loves to emphasize how much anger you should have at these “femenists” and Internet Aritocrat? Well he wants you to be an extremist. Even your ‘friends’ are wondering why you haven’t rioted yet. Hey here’s Asalieri calling Zoe Quinn a slut and a bitch. Doesn’t that just make you want to join in? Still no? Well then welcome to gamergate, because gamergate isn’t about rioting or harassment. Somehow, someway, millions of people avoided all these calls and cues for violence and instead sat down and said “I know that you want to kafkatrapp me, but I ain’t fucking dumb. So here’s my letter of protest and its going straight to your advertisers and I’m never visiting your website again. You can misrepresent me all you want, but at the end of the day, I’m your paycheck and this paycheck is going somewhere else.”. And here I thought the majority of people are idiots who succumb to their feelings and needs to commit violence.
I mean if gamergate was composed of pissed reactionaries of misogynists do you think anyone would have noticed John Mcintosh was using Anita as a sockpuppet?
And this is honestly the best proof that Gamergate is not a harassment campaign. Because they think for themselves and they don’t let stupid emotions get in the way of the real problem, that journalists have traded away their integrity for relations with the developer. So Eric can make as many gamergate related videos, he doesn’t represent the movement and neither does internet Aristocrat or thunderfoot. They could be hollering for blood and nothing will happen. Gamergate is full of people who passed the information literacy test, their philosophy is trust but verify which means to get information from trusted sources but try to confirm them before spreading them on. And I can’t think of a better group of people I’d want trying to fix this industry; an industry that I should note could quite literally slide into a landfill bigger than the one E.T for Atari was buried in.
Okay so AVGN released a movie after all these years, a movie which lead to controversy including a noticeable dip in AVGN episode quality (generally believed to be a result of the movie taking away time to make the episodes, resulting in one too many ad lib episodes) and completely false accusations of the angry review genre dying and embezzlement. Before I address the headline, let’s take a good long look at the history of Asalieri and Co’s feud against AVGN. Asalieri is essentially the focus point here as randomdce and others are pretty much yes men who do what Asalieri tells them to do. I don’t think I need to back this up with randomdce’s schizophrenic rants about what he hates including things that he obviously has never dealt with like soccer fans. I don’t think I need to get into the reaction and review series that Emer Prevost makes where it essentially got more and more contarian until good movies were treated like shit and bad movies were considered super watchable until the incident finally hit a crisis point where one of Asalieri’s friends (Gameboob) decided he wasn’t going to let the stupid obviously false bullshit reviews continue and asked Asalieri to stop. This of course resulted in said friend being ostracized for the crime of not believing it was okay to lie to people. No instead I’m going to talk about the recent Gamergate scandal for the reason that it is recent and shows just how desperate Eric Gaede is to get more attention.
For those of us who don’t know about the gamergate scandal (there’s a lot here though so see TL,DR if you don’t care), a female developer by the alias Zoe Quinn was revealed (by her ex-boyfriend) to have had several relations with 5 people related to the gaming industry. The story went viral and people started talking about it on reddit, only to have their discussion completely banned and removed by admins and moderators who made it very clear they had a political agenda and were not supportive of free speech (and I’m not joking here, while plenty of conspiracy theories are out there with many suggesting reddit mods had sex with Zoe Quinn, there is plenty of concrete evidence of reddit mods telling people to “fuck off” and abusing the shadowban system, a system reserved to deter spam bots). The media continued its stupid trend of writing articles saying gamers are misogynist by only stating the facts that Zoe Quinn had to say and every article was just “Female dev gets harassed, gamers should be ashamed” when most people just wanted to know about the security of their information sources and whether or not transparency was an issue. The internet decides to fire back and starts investigating the things Zoe quinn does and her releationship with most of the gaming media. Ties are found between her and Anita Sarkesian and it gets revealed that she shut down a feminist charity movement because she didn’t like it not giving her more money, Zoe Quinn’s charity she ran to fund her own game jam is corrupt as all hell with money going directly to her bank account and a person steps out to say that Zoe Quinn sexually harassed them at a wedding. Enter Phil Fish who decides to call all gamers hitler, intimidate the sexually harassed person before doing what he always does and quit the internet, but not before his company’s website gets hacked and claiming he’ll sell his entire company and franchise for a very small sum of money. Zoe Quinn also claims she got hacked by “multiple hackers”… on twitter and tumblr… both known for having a system that deters multiple points of entry. Cementing Zoe Quinn’s stupid attempt to put the fire out with natural gas and kerosene, Zoe quinn’s “hacked pages” show information that is completely false including a cellphone number that is actually a number for landline phone in hawaii. This stupid attempt increased the scrutiny that gamers had towards the media white knighting and otherwise protecting only women. The media decides to continue pushing the envelope of its audience’s patience by posting articles declaring that all gamers are dead and that gamers do not exist because one female developer got harassed there fore gamers as a term doesn’t exist because…. fuck I don’t know, this what is called jumping the slippery slope and I’ll talk about this later. Actual journalists step into the fray and find research showing that Phil Fish only managed to be successful because of wide spread corruption at the awards show (most of the judges had in fact invested in his game and those judges refused to play any of the games that they had to judge, this is in addition to them delaying the awards show to further increase the prize money Phil Fish would get). Others found that Zoe Quinn had named several sites for harassing her including 4chan and wizardchan but both accusations were false because the majority of the userbase had not heard of Zoe quinn and there was no real evidence that pointed out that Zoe Quinn didn’t write the offending comments herself. Adding to the hole that the media dug themselves, many of their actual writers started anonymously posted that their opinion was being censored and that they were only allowed to write material that insulted gamers as a whole, one writer actually did step out but immediately got rebuked for doing so. This cemented the idea that the gaming media was politicized and more interested in pushing an agenda than actually informing people about video games. Making things even worse (big shock) it was found that many gamer journalists who had written positive things about Zoe Quinn had in fact paid money to her and contributed to her patreon account. Actor Adam Baldwin decides to get in on the action and tweets to #Gamergate, creating the new name for the transparency movement (it was previously quinnspiracy). The media decides to brilliantly resolve the situation making more “gamers are dead” articles and Zoe Quinn performs a just as brilliant move by screencapping a 4 chan IRC log, pretending its a secret exclusive gathering only high ranking members can access and saying that’s how the term gamergate came up with even though anyone with a brain stem knows it was Adam Baldwin. Anita Sarkesian decides to make a few moves too and claims she was harassed to the point of leaving her home and claims she called the police. This of course results in more backfire when a journalist called Milo decides to investigate by asking the actual police and the police say (surprise surprise) that Anita never filed a claim for harassment. Adding to the web of lies, Zoe Quinn stated that her game gave money to a charity only for it to be found out that said charity never got the money and that Zoe Quinn had once again monetized sympathy for her own gain. The debate on what should be done and how salvageable the gaming media really is still being debated. I’d highly reccomend visiting “knowyourmeme Gamegate”, watching the videos that internet aristocraft and Mundane Matt posted and reading the archived pages of the “gamers are dead” articles to get a better perspective on just how terrible this situation is.
TL:DR What the gaming media has committed is essentially jumping the slippery slope. When it comes to extremism and radicalism it was always start at a neutral point. No one suddenly becomes a radical asshole over night. It takes weeks if not months, if not years to get to the point where you blatantly disregard evidence and keep expressing the same opinion over and over again. When gaming media first started, we could see that people who wrote the articles gave a shit about the games they played (most of the time) but as time went on, people in the gaming media started compromising their own ideals and integrity. We started seeing reports of the gaming media outlets accepting preferential treatment from gaming companies and firing writers who didn’t give nice positive reviews in return. We started to see the formation of the boiling frog phenomenon, when small changes that eventually lead to an extreme becoming tolerated. Certain gaming “Journalists” become more and more accepting of giving up their integrity and became more focused on not writing about video games. We got hype articles that only tangentially talk about the actual product, we got articles discussing the morality from video games as if video games aren’t about the gameplay but the morals of the story, then finally we got the articles that indirectly lead this situation where basic female designs were called sexist and everything was looked at as if females were being oppressed by games. Gaming media got less and less interested in videos games over time because they allowed their focus to be perverted by bribes and clear corruption and thus found themselves more interested in creating a sexist political echo chamber in which the harassment of men is considered irrelevant but the harassment of a woman (and not women) is considered a crime necessitating a combined network of insulting articles that do more to make women look incapable of handling their own problems than actually expose real undeserved treatment towards individuals based on their gender. They’ve literally abandoned even their decency because they’re too busy trying to do things then examine whether or not they’ve done anything right; they have jumped the slippery slope, an ideological point of no return in which passing it results in no benefits for anyone.
And yet here Asalieri is, joining the anti-Zoe Quinn side without even a real cursory research on the subject.
Edit: wow how did I miss Eric’s face imposed on dick dastardly’s body in the video. I wonder if he understands that dick dastardly always loses despite having a clear advantage.
Okay so let’s take a look at the description. And you know what? This actually seems like he did the research, I mean wow, take a look at that description.
“Well, it’s been talked about by so many folks, I can’t help but want to check out all the hype surrounding Depression Quest. Is it a game that will revolutionize gaming?
Jesus, I sure hope not, if this is the future of gaming, then R.I.P. to gaming, cause this medium will be dead to me.
This isn’t a game. It should not be classified as one. Of course the hideousness of this game doesn’t compare to the hideousness of its’ creator, but the fact that so many online sites are bidding people to love it and praise it as great is exactly what has me and plenty other gamers worried about what lies ahead.” – Eric Gaede
I mean do I need to point out how rational this looks? Complaining about the actual problem of the gaming media hyping up crappy products that aren’t really games and are at best on rails story telling simulators? That’s surprisingly thoughtful of Eric Gaede and I honestly can’t believe he wrote something so thoughtful. Bonus points for him decrying the media’s idea on what a gamer should be.
While I do know that this article should have more AVGN in, let’s take a look at the first minute or so of the video because its pretty clear that this is a review of depression quest, a crappy visual novel esque game where the good choices are just crossed out and you make lame choices for the next 10 minutes before the game ends and you drill your ear drums out because that piano music is terrible. Its not a game and it lacks enough effort to even call it a work. Play oppression quest instead, its much more humorous.
0:00 “Today’s review is brought to you by Zoey’s Greek Yogurt, did you know it takes an average of about 5 men’s worth of labour to fill in a bucket of Zoey?” – Eric Gaede
Wow I gave him the benefit of the doubt (which I generally do anyway) and he immediately blew it. Hey Eric, you do realize that the last 2 guys haven’t actually been found and that there’s no real evidence of her banging all of them? The sex part is not true, the relations part is.
0:23 Eric continues the sex analogy and decides to be exactly the kind of people who shouldn’t be in this debate. Pro-tip: Gamegate isn’t about who Zoe Quinn had sex with but the corruption in gaming journalism.
0:40 Eric CONTINUES the sex analogy and continues to act as if the joke is funny because you know, yogurt equals semen and therefore its funny right? right? RIGHT? Loving the slippery slope we’re seeing here, its kinda hard to focus on the corrupting journalism practices when you’re clearly more involved in slut-shaming.
1:11 Eric shows that many gaming websites have provided positive press about the game depression quest. Actual good work here because that’s research, its shame Eric spent the last 40 seconds trying to play out the situation as a sex scandal.
1:17 “hello I’m Asa, I’m just your regular gamer”
Uh no you’re not Eric. You don’t play a lot of games and you definitely don’t get to call yourself a gamer when you spend a lot of time showing exactly how not a gamer you are. First off you hate AVGN and many others without any real reason behind it, the average gamer tends to have something called logic; perhaps if you didn’t jump the slippery slope and show how much of egotistical asshole and demonstrate how you are a “special snowflake” by constantly acting as if people are harassing you when all they’re doing is expressing basic opinions then maybe, just maybe you could claim to be a normal person who happens to be a gamer. Adding to what’s wrong with calling yourself a regular gamer Eric, is that you don’t understand the criteria to review a game, culminating in you not understanding why superman 64 is a terrible game and not being able to critique the Irate Gamer (who can quite literally be called anything other than a gamer). Goddamn it Eric stop doing good work and immediately ruining it with unnecessary dick dastardly statements. You don’t have to be a regular gamer to critique depression quest, its obviously not a game.
1:24 “And today we’re gonna play depression quest, which means we’re not gonna need this. [throws controller away] that makes me already kinda wary”
Oh my gosh, a PC game that doesn’t need a controller. Oh wait doesn’t a mouse constitute as a controller, it is an input device. I could construe this as anti-pc gamer sentiment but I’m gonna Eric the benefit here and assume he’s not stupid enough to insult pc gamers considering that he states he loves league of legends. But what I can’t give him a pass on is the Dick Dastardly move he’s doing here. So first you claim you’re a gamer which means you like games of all types (note that he did not say console gamer) and then show how little you actually understand the material and concepts relevant to gaming by bringing a controller to a pc game that is a visual novel. This results in a conundrum in which people who do know who Eric is will call bullshit and people who actually have knowledge in the field will shake their heads and also call bullshit. What kind of gamer is wary because a game doesn’t let him use a controller and forces him to use a mouse? Hope anyone watching this video doesn’t like RTS games, because Eric just literally stated that any game that doesn’t use a controller deserves scrutiny.
1:40 Eric points out the awards the game got and says that they make you want to play the game. He doesn’t note that none of those awards are reputable.
1:55 Eric discusses the payment options for accessing the game “pay what you want or play for free, no guesses which one I’m going with on this one”
And considering that we’re going to be discussing the AVGN movie piracy, I’m not exactly surprised. I could complain here that Eric just skipping payment but to be honest, that’s not illegal and quite frankly I don’t think he or anyone should pay money to play depression quest. But it is worth noting that Eric has already formed an opinion on the game, thus brings the first difference between AVGN and Asalieri. In an AVGN review, you get the impression that AVGN has played the game and is giving you his opinion. Asalieri acts as if he hasn’t finished playing the game or watching someone’s review but makes it clear what he already thinks of it. This makes Eric Gaede look smug and like a jackass who already knows what verdict he’s going to give but is going to act as if what he’s “uncovered” justifies his verdict. By not even considering to pay for depression quest, Eric’s already shown that he’s not impartial and that there’s really nothing the game can do for him to change his opinion. This ruins the whole “let’s go see” effect because its clear he’s already seen it. And with this I’m gonna end the review of this particular video early because it’s honestly time to talk about Asalieri’s feud with AVGN and how it all spiraled downhill for Eric as he gave up increasingly more alarming levels of decency.
It’s hard to take Eric Gaede’s stance against Zoe Quinn seriously when anyone who knows a brief history of Eric’s history would know that he literally does the same things. Eric generalizes and uses sterotypes of his opponents; at one point blaming one person for 50 dislikes on a single video. He tries to start the debate with “I’m a regular gamer” when its clear he doesn’t really play games and is just taking the name to look credible. Much like Zoe Quinn, Eric tells others to harass others and has fabricated harassment against himself, claiming a two comment spree against him in the irate gamer sucks blog was harassment and even had that fake craigslist ad against him had severe signs of being faked (which he stated he contacted the police but its pretty clear that nothing has happened). Much like the gaming media, Eric has censored all debate pertaining to any flaws in his logic and completely without reason. What I’m getting at here is that because Eric has done so much bullshit and all while being completely careless, Eric Gaede has jumped the slippery slope and there’s really not much he can do even when he does pick a popular cause. Even with all the millions of gamers rallying for gamergate, Asalieri only got 6k viewers, the average amount he gets for his RARs. People say “what comes around goes around” and that literally describes the slippery slope, when you jump that slope, you’re screwed until you fix the slope or jump back up it. OF course this would require Eric to show remorse, something he doesn’t show because he’s too busy partying at the bottom of the slippery slope.*P.S If you guys really want to review the entire 20 minute video, let me know in the comments, right now I think the article is dragging on too long here*
The sad and hilarious irony here is that gamergate is about cracking down the actions of SJW’s, social justice warriors, people who put forth a crappy poorly thought-out political agenda generally involving extreme feminism or racism and harass others based on what they perceive as moral failings in that individual. With SJW’s there often isn’t evidence or even real truth behind the accusation and its reason why gaming media is considered corrupted by SJW’s because they keep writing stupid articles accusing people of moral failings on non-existent or incomplete evidence. SJW’s are also known for being completely unable to take criticism and label anyone who dissents with them someone with a moral failing (i.e SJW’s will claim anyone who disagrees is a misogynist or racist). And yet… doesn’t this really seem familiar? I mean let’s summarize what SJW’s do again.
1. Action plan is non-existent and individual is more involved in harassing people then actually fixing a social injustice
2. Individual constantly looks to insult the individual and claim they have character flaws. This generally means not addressing their argument and using mass personal attacks.
3. Does not take criticism and generally uses faulty evidence or misrepresenting evidence to insult others.
Doesn’t Eric do all of this? See what I mean by slippery slope? Now I’m not exactly sure when Eric Gaede jumped the slippery slope, the more cynical people will argue his logic was at SJW level when he started but others guess it was most likely either around the Jfreedan incident or the AVGN incident. Considering that Eric only really got massive backlash after the AVGN incident, I’m gonna take a guess that Eric jumped the slippery slope at the AVGN incident. Heck I’m not even sure if his crusade against AVGN is when it started, since his actions against TGWTG and reviewtopia are just as bad.
For those of us needing a reminder of what happened when Asalieri firsted targeted AVGN, let’s take a look at the history behind AVGN’s supposed decline.
It all started when AVGN appeared in a kickstarter for cheetahmen 2. Eric immediately stated that AVGN was pocketing money and that cheetahmen 2 kickstarter was a scam and that AVGN was e-begging. A key thing that SJW’s do is pigeon hole their opposition by applying a filter name in attempt to associate them with that action. To no one’s surprise, while the cheetahmen 2 kickstarter was a bad deal, it was not by any real definition a scam and unless someone works in the IRS, it never became known if AVGN had pocketed money and its not like it even mattered. Desperate for attention and destruction, Eric then claimed that AVGN’s indiegogo campaign to fund the AVGN movie was a scam and that AVGN was pocketing all the money just like the previous accusation. This is in my opinion where Asalieri jumped the slippery slope during his crusade against AVGN
As you can see in the video, Eric Gaede essentially took an editable IMDB page listing the AVGN movie budget, edited out the edit buttons and then claimed that AVGN was “exposed”. One of the recurring themes you will see in any my articles detailing the escapades of Asalieri is that he keeps doing unnecessary actions that completely ruin his credibility, a dick dastardly move if you will. In the cheetahmen 2 “scandal” there was indeed cause for concern because hey its cheetahmen 2, why the fuck would you pay any real amount of money to get that game? Saying AVGN was in on it was little unnecessary but the kickstarter was run by Greg Pabich a person not known for his integrity. This “e-begging movie fund embezzlement” was just way too far and it was to no one’s surprised that Eric got his ass handed to him for doctoring evidence and just flat out lying.
Then Eric decided he would get his friends in on it too because apparently a lack of evidence is not an issue when you have sheep spouting the same thing you say. Randomdce got in on it and many of his “friends” also joined in on it and to this day we still don’t really know why Eric actually hates AVGN which is completely in line with SJW behaviour anyway because its not because AVGN is actually pocketing money but rather Eric wishes he were the caustic critic that people actually gave a crap about.
Always wanting to top his own mistakes, Asalieri posted a facebook post where he included a torrent link to AVGN’s movie.
Someone asked him to pay for it like a non-jackass person and he replied with:
So let me get this straight Eric. You accuse AVGN of e-begging and stealing money and here you are Eric… stealing stuff. The slippery slope is real people, always try and watch your own damn actions before you end up a ideological train-wreck like Eric here. Its rather hilarious how the morals started from “Taking things without earning them is wrong” to “faking evidence is okay as AVGN must be the mature one who demonstrates transparency” finally ending in the bottom of the barrel “Stealing is okay as long as AVGN isn’t the one doing it”. Wow.
There are a lot of problems with his reasoning too. “No one who donated gets to actually see it for free. So screw him” So Eric… you represent all the people who financially backed the movie; as in all the people who agreed with the terms of the funding campaign and donated knowing full well they wouldn’t get to see the movie for free? Oh wait you don’t because those guys hate you because you spent the last several years lying about the project they supported. So literally not only has Eric Gaede given the middle finger to the financial backers, he also rationalizes the theft of the movie by saying he’s doing for those people he gave the middle finger to. Isn’t that nice double think? It’s like saying angry reviewing is dead while at the same time being a caustic crit… oh wait he did that. It’s like saying you care about your family but go to a water park without… oh wait he did that too. Well how about stating that you “call it like you see it” when you’re actually just lying about your motivations and your own ideal… hmmm the bottom of the slippery slope sucks doesn’t it?
“He has enough money”
You say that about everybody Eric. Your words would mean something if you actually used them when they were applicable. In addition, Eric must think he’s the IRS or something because last time I checked he’s not exactly one who makes the grade on transparency. Perhaps Mr.”I live in a large house but ask for laptops and people to buy my crap and act as if I’m poor even though I take frequent videos showing my traveling via airplane or going to a casino” should take a look in the mirror.
“just look the other way on this one, man”
NO Eric, its hard to look the other way when every time someone so much as gives you the benefit of the doubt you abuse it to cause more damage and hurt more people. This time you have literally committed a crime and are still nosing in business that’s way out of your league. You won’t get people to look the other way when you’re throwing deaththreats at other people.
No one can look the other way because you’ve jumped the slippery slope! You don’t care whether or not you get anything done, you’re more worried about inserting your egotistical thoughts into the matter and pretending everyone who doesn’t agree masturbates to their hate of you. You didn’t even apologize to Mr.KillUltra like you said you would. Your RAR’s are little more than a cheap attempt to harass others. Let’s face it Eric, you’re a criminal.
Eric has “reviewed”, in the loosest form possible, the AVGN movie but he decided to make a stupid video in an attempt to insult people who actually bother to check their facts
No Eric, spouting actual criticism against yourself in a childish immature voice does not work. Saying things in an attempt to deter AVGN fans you insulted with stuff like:
“*the following is read in Asa’s mocking voice, because as someone who can’t review he clearly can mock things* Asalieri you suck and I’m gonna watch your AVGN video and tell you suck because AVGN really needs me to tell him how much I love him” – Eric trying his very hardest to admit he’s never made a mistake by daring people to harass them
Hmmm where to begin with what’s wrong with this. Eric, you get like less than 1k views a day, AVGN gets millions. If you are getting harassed by AVGN fans, and I mean REAL ones, you’re getting harassed by people who clearly aren’t a majority of AVGN fans. AVGN has fans because they like to be entertained by actual humor, there’s no humor in your clear disability in knowing what you’re doing is wrong but attempting to hog attention to how wrong you are in lousy attempt to be relevant. Pointing out that you never gave real evidence concerning AVGN embezzlement is like saying you knew what you’re doing is wrong and then doing it anyway. If you want people to take your opinions seriously, stop acting as if anyone who critcizes you is fat (hey isn’t Eric really fat, if haters are fat then isn’t this a paradox?) or a fanboy. People are wising up and just plain ignoring you simply because you don’t do anything important or interesting. You see one hate video from Eric Gaede you’ve seen them all. Heck it wouldn’t be so monotonous if it wasn’t so one sided, the AVGN movie is getting some backlash simply because its a movie and the review isn’t the focus of the movie. Eric could easily gain some reputation by not being one-sided and admitting he was wrong but at the same time critiquing the movie for being longwinded and lacking focus. This was a another golden opportunity to show integrity and he missed it. Bonus points for ending the mocking with “peace and love to all my brony friends” because representing people correctly is for smart people.
The real puzzling part of this video is the ending where Eric writes two sentences. The first “Alright I give up. AVGN the movie review.”… REALLY? You only had to write one sentence and you couldn’t even make a sentence Eric? ‘AVGN the movie review’ is not a sentence! Where is the predicate? Much like like Eric’s credibility it skipped town.
The second sentence is “Coming soon, because you are asking for it so much”. Who’s asking? He has like 6k subscribers Eric and he barely even gets 1k views a day. Heck he’s already done a review, he made a rifftrax track and stupidly named it rifftrax! I’ll ask again, who’s asking Is it just about less than a dozen people like every other goddamn time Eric has been “motivated” to insert his egotism into something? It only took two negative comments about Eric for him to come over to the Irate Gamer sucks blog to get his ass handed to him! It only took him one PM to get him to make the fanboy’s world video and according to Jfreedan it took batdamn’s coaxing for Eric to come up with the dumb idea to attempt copyright fraud. Not only that but the message Eric is trying to give out is confused. Obviously Eric means by “you” its the fans but the since the entire video is about AVGN fans (or maybe Asalieri got kicked in the crotch, that would explain why he’s voice is so stupidly pitched) so it gives the impression that he’s making the video for AVGN fans even though thats like saying “you win trolls, do harass me I’ll give in some more.”. But considering how little effort Eric puts into his work, I’m not really surprised that this video sucks, doesn’t attempt to be responsible in any fashion and is literally made of copyrighted pictures. You know Eric maybe you shouldn’t repeatedly do things that give just cause for your videos being DMCA’d. People only get sympathy when they get DMCA’d when they make good content.
Below is the review itself.
Considering it starts with Eric making a smug face and how he’s already jumped slippery slope given how he has no standards for criticism or justification when it comes to slandering AVGN; its honestly no surprise that the review sucks too. Notable moments include Eric acting like the movie ticket counted as stealing even though you pay 15$ to get into film festival but hey its Eric its not like he wants to do research or anything; Yellow Journalism FTW!
It’s really jarring that Eric decides he’s gonna be pro-gamergate and then shits on a major gaming icon and makes as many bigoted statements as possible while being as much of a yellow journalist as possible. I could do a point by point deconstruction of this video but Eric has already jumped the slope, what could he possible point out that isn’t misrepresented or done improperly? He couldn’t handle Irate Gamer, he couldn’t handle Zoe Quinn destroyer of feminist charities and having watched this video he couldn’t handle AVGN at one of his most vulnerable moments. You landed at the shallow lake at the bottom of slippery slope Eric and you did a belly flop too.
Bonus points for ADD: Eric makes a minecraft video that only has gamergate material as a secondary content. You know Eric, you would probably actually be relevant if you played games like League of Legends and Minecraft during the period of time they were actually popular on youtube. Doing it now is essentially bandwagon jumping which is no surprise considering how you’re desperate for attention now.
Alrighty then its’ been a while but that would be for two reasons.
1. Eric hasn’t really done anything that didn’t immediately backfire on him
2. Writing about the boring and unwatchable boring garbage that Eric puts out isn’t exactly necessary or important. I don’t find it offensive or otherwise notable that someone puts out a bad video or lame content. I do find that lame and distasteful attempts to start flame wars is worth writing about.
And so it wouldn’t be until roughly a week about that Eric came out of hiding and started making RAR’s even though his attempt to RAR jontron failed so badly that he had to disable ratings. I also like to note that Asalieri has 6k or so subscribers but most of his videos get way less than that. It’s almost as if he’s trying to emulate his good friend Chris Bores, who barely even gets 10k views anymore despite over 100k subscribers. People may wonder why I would bother writing about a show that quite frankly gets less than 5k viewers these days but the fact of the matter is that Eric is still trying to go back to the glory days where he could send gullible fans to attack and otherwise harass people for fun. Even now Eric is still acting as if he’s the victim and that he’s never done anything that deserves animosity. But I digress, Eric’s ego is just one of many problems that he has yet to fix over the many years he’s been doing this.
As for RAR as a whole, well I can describe it as a sick attempt to harass other people on the internet generally by trying to get his fans to go over to that person’s channel and troll them. Heck if this wasn’t the case I wouldn’t be writing these articles. The fact of the matter is that people are willing to troll and harass to uphold information that is baseless and often times wrong. Even when Eric does pick a suitable target, he makes poor critiques and doesn’t properly point out the flaws inherent in the person’s work and makes really crappy suggestions. The big 3 problems I have so far are:
1. Not making proper criticism and instead just attacking someone’s character. This show is called RAR as in Reviewing a reviewer right? So where’s the reviewing? Most of the time its just Eric making direct attacks at the person instead of pointing out their problems. How can you review a reviewer when you don’t know what a review is? This is especially bad since Eric keeps talking about how his ‘haters’ are trying to assassinate his character. Don’t throw stones if don’t want to see some of them coming right back at you Eric!
2. Not understanding terms or how reality works. Its one thing to make fun of someone because they screwed up, its another to make fun of someone for doing their job and working within the bounds of reality. Sometimes Eric just doesn’t seem to understand that there is a reality that requires things such as volunteers, hard work and compromises. For example Eric laughed at the idea that a library would need to advertise its existence; he scoffed at the idea that a library has any reason to exist with the invention of the internet and thought that library’s have BATHROOMS. If you’re too busy making jokes about what seems odd to you, perhaps you should do the research before laughing at words you don’t actually know the meaning of?
3. The misuse of the word E-begging. Oh this one is just so bad that it breaks away from complaint #2. E-begging and Eric’s blatant misuse of it has gotten Eric into a lot of trouble and it doesn’t help that he doesn’t use the term E-begging properly at all. E-begging is the act of taking money without providing conditions or otherwise providing any guarantees as to what you will do with the money. Contrary to what really stupid people are believing at the moment, e-begging has nothing to do with taking funds to make a project and definitely nothing to do with movies. Taking money with an established plan to go make a movie or some product is known as crowd funding. “But what about the jackasses who take 10,000 dollars but only use 500 bucks?” well for one that’s not e-begging that’s fraud and two there’s something known as a lawsuit for people who commit fraud. I don’t think kickstarter money is taxable so I’m definitely sure that the government is going to be pissed if people are making money by overcharging people for projects on kick-starter. But this isn’t the only problem with Eric’s usage of E-begging, because we all know it wouldn’t be Eric Gaede if he just misused the term in one manner… no no no he’s gotta misuse it in every possible way. You see E-begging is popular for 2 reasons. For starters you get a wide audience. The more important part however is that you don’t have to give your name. Why would E-begging accused people like James Rolfe and Linkara do things like crowd source a movie or ask people to stop using adblock when they could just do the same thing anonymously? What’s particularly sad about this is that Eric asked unconditionally for a laptop… which is exactly what E-begging is. So not only does Eric not know what E-begging is, he’s guilty of committing it!
Well with that list out of the way let’s watch the 13 minute RAR that Eric made on the ranting robots group. From what I can tell Ranting Robots are simply a reviewing group that uses a robot reviewer motif. They’re fairly small group going by subscribers but then again its not like that really matters because I’m sure Eric is going to hit everything on the above checklist.
warning a fat jackass takes up 90% of the video.
0-0:13 A message flashes that says “this is the real #32”. Yeah Eric because your april fools joke with the RAR on Jontron was so radically different from what you’d normally do and people just so happened to not notice it was an april fools joke. Maybe if you actually had humor then the april fools joke might not have backfired.
0:22 “I’ve been reviewing reviewers for way too long now” Oh boy where is this going? Please tell me you’re going to quit making an ass out of yourself… I would like that very much
0:30 Nope instead Eric says that youtube reviews have been around since the ‘dawn of time’ and he’s only been around since the ‘renaissance’ because youtube apparently follows human history. Oh I’ve got to love the ego here, yeah just pretend that you’re apart of the rebirth of culture. You’re so freaking cultural and unique Eric, I mean it’s almost like you joined during the period where douchebags like Chris Bores became prevalent on youtube.
0:40 “so what drives people to replicate the success of shows like AVGN” Uh Eric you said AVGN sucks… consistency? And Eric, please don’t tell me you’re going to call these guys, these ranting robots, as lack water imitators. Eric, you can’t even do the basic review format correctly.
0:50 “So I guess someone has tasted success with video game reviews haven’t they?” Oh god we’re going here aren’t we? So in case no one has noticed yet, Eric is going to pretend that ranting robots are unsuccessful talentless hacks. And this is Eric Gaede, the guy who couldn’t make a good joke if it was worth a million dollars and the guy too lazy to pick up a a dictionary. I would like to note that RAR isn’t a fresh concept either and reviewing critics has existed since the concept of dirt.
0:51 Wow this picture is stupid. Essentially its a fisherman throwing his line into water to catch a fish and Eric has decided to just label it with stupid garbage because he’s apparently convinced that youtube angry reviewing genre has entered the apocalypse or some shit. I wonder if Eric realizes that being unnecessarily negative and harsh is one of the tenants unique to angry reviewing? But then again I’m pretty sure Eric doesn’t notice that people aren’t paying any attention to him anymore because its this kind of angry reviewing, the smug jackass who doesn’t know anything, that’s been declining recently. Actual Angry reviewing has been fairly stable. For those wonder about the picture, the fisherman is labeled wannabe reviewer, because apparently popularity is all that is important when it comes to being a reviewer; where as the murky water is labeled grim truth (Angry reviewing on youtube is hard? What? In his angry Joe critique Eric said that Angry review is easy and like a “vacation”). Finally the fish is labeled “the last tiny bit of online success reviewing has to offer anyone”. How out of touch with reality and egotistical do you have to be pretend that you can describe a genre you can’t even critique properly as “overfished”?
0:56 “this is really the snag for this quote on quote art form if you really want to call it that is that you can’t really be successful with it” Wow you’re an idiot Eric, I think you just hit every thing on the list and its barely the one minute mark! Holy shit, I can’t believe you can be this utterly stupid. Do you have evidence? Do you want to provide a statistic? This is your introduction to your essay/thesis, where is your data? There are a ridiculous amount of people who make a living being angry reviewers and it shouldn’t be surprising that supply and demand is in effect. If all the people who watch angry reviewing shows are satisfied with AVGN, Angry Joe show and all the others then its going to be harder a new comer to find a niche. You can’t pretend that this means the death of the angry reviewing genre. There’s still room for more people, it just means they need to be more talented to get more leg room. You could use a hollywood movie metaphor for this. Hollywood action movies are a dime a dozen, and its rare for them to flop even though they tend to be so goddamn generic. But then comes a movie you don’t expect, something that really changes the formula and finds an audience like inception or hurt locker. The art form known as movie making isn’t dead but its definitely over-saturated and thus requires people to think smart in order to find an audience. Same thing for angry reviewing, people are looking for innovation and something new, not the same damn crap they’ve already seen. Will Eric acknowledge that the genre of angry reviewing is going nowhere but up? Let’s see shall we?
1:06 hurray Eric admits that people with originality will make it. Unfortunately he decides to be an asshole while doing it. First off Eric decides to say people with connections will succeed and then decides to show a picture of ‘Angry Joe’ implying that Angry Joe is only successful because of his connections. Eric you do realize that Angry Joe puts quite a lot of work into his stuff right? You can’t pretend that Angry Joe is successful due to cronyism because any way you want to look at it, Angry Joe isn’t exactly a full fledged moron. AH geez don’t tell me you’re still jelly about Angry Joe being successful while you’re not! It really doesn’t breed confidence when Eric continues to pretend that he’s done nothing wrong to attract haters while he continues to bash Angry Joe without providing one iota of evidence as to what makes Angry Joe a valid target!
If there is anyone who has a job they shouldn’t it would be Chris Bores, who’s weak work ethic really shouldn’t put him in gott game’s roster. But I digress as Eric also says that people with originality will succeed… while showing a picture of 404 not found because its not egotistical to state that everyone else lacks innovation aside from one’s self right?
1:22 Eric just decides to say that everyone else who tries to be innovative fails. Because that’s how you be a critic right? Just pretend that everyone who does anything is a failure for attempting to do something!
1:28 “If only it was 2006 again. I could experience the boom of angry reviewing” Wow you suck Eric. Angry Reviewing started in 2004… Besides why would you want to view the boom of Angry reviewing? You just said everyone else is not innovative! If you’re not convinced of innovation now, what good is going back in time to see the things you’ve already seen!? Bad Writing: Its not just for Chris Bores anymore!
I also gotta love the appeal to nostalgia fallacy here because going back in time will apparently solve things like not having innovation. Then again I guess Eric could go back in time so he wouldn’t start this shitty review show that makes no sense half the goddamn time! There’s a whole bunch of pictures that don’t have any relevance to anything. Zero wing is in there, 300 is in there, what the hell does this have to do with his message?
1:32 “AVGN’s shtick would still be fresh and hilarious” because… you’ve already seen it… what? Eric this isn’t how time travel works! Also I believe you’ve said Irate Gamer’s stuff was better than AVGN’s. In addition I would love to point out how much of a friend Eric is being here. Chris started reviewing in 2007 so essentially by saying 2006 was the peak of angry reviewing, Eric is saying that Chris was the start of Angry review’s death. Gotta love how you treat your friends Eric!
1:50 Eric says that back in 2006 people thought videogame review shows would get better but its now 2014 and they are now beyond passe. Says who? What evidence supports this statement? You know who really is passe Eric? How about you? Its been like what 2 accounts and several years and your subscriber count is about even to ranting robots? Ranting robots started a YEAR AGO. If anything this is a hell of good start for ranting robots. This is what I mean about not knowing how to critique. You can’t critique someone on the grounds that they’re genre is dead unless you prove that their genre is dead! In addition Eric’s language keeps changing from sentence to sentence. What genre is dead? Is it angry reviewing? Is it Video game reviewing? Is it reviewing in general? These are three different terms and Eric uses them interchangeably. No wonder the genre of reviewing a reviewer is dead on youtube, an idiot is plastered as its role model.
2:00 “every game you can think of has been reviewed by someone online” Really now? So can anyone tell me about times of conflict on the PC? How about Gundam G-next or battle commander on the SNES? Does it occur to Eric that he really shouldn’t talk in absolutes when he can’t prove anything? Its been 2 minutes and he hasn’t backed up his thesis. How the fuck do you manage that? I would also point out that this is the reviewer’s dibs fallacy, in that you assume that because someone else did it you can’t be innovative reviewing it. Its utter bullshit and as everyone can do things in their own unique way otherwise every student tasked on talking about a well documented phenomenon would be expelled for plagiarism.
2:06 “we even have a general consensus on what the worst video seems to be, insert superman 64 joke here somewhere” ………………. What? Superman64 is the worst game of all time? Really? Not ET? Not custard’s revenge? Not Ride to hell retribution? Not Guise of the wolf? Just going to pretend you know it all don’t you Eric? Could you have at least have done some fact checking? People and professionals alike cannot actually agree. Go ahead and make a search for the worse games of all time. They will have discrepancies and differences. Let’s not even begin on games that were lost to time or simply never became popular because they sucked that bad. Superman 64 and ET are well known because they have a brand name associated with them but other games like Big Rigs, Times of Conflict, Elf Bowling, Make my video and many others get glossed over despite being leagues more unplayable than Superman 64.
2:12 “Why am I bring up this obvious observation” its not an obvious observation… stop speaking in absolutes. Gosh its like editing and proofreading as well as proper thought processes were not at work here. But here comes Eric’s because statement that apparently will justify this blatant and unnecessary harassment of other youtube channels
2:21 “Because we’ve reached the point where its clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that we’ve just plain stopped trying. We’ve run out of gimmicks, angry nerd, happy nerd,… the point is we need no more review shows. But THEY just keep making more even though we’ve never heard every reviewing catchphrase and cliche” Ah I see and all this is exemplified in Ranting Robots because… well I actually don’t understand the point of these last 2 minutes and a half at all because quite literally there was nothing accomplished in these last 2 minutes and a half! I’m tried of saying this but talking in absolutes does not make it true. Eric will need to present evidence if his thesis of “Angry Reviewing being totally stagnant is to be true” after all we are living in the world where the most over-saturated video game genre ‘FPS’ is still ridiculously strong. All this statement solidifies is that Eric seems to be convinced that the apocalypse is coming. What I really don’t understand is why even bother saying this? Bashing Angry review newcomers isn’t going to solve the oversaturation problem as much as boycotting the next FPS game that isn’t Call of duty is going to stop FPS oversaturation. You can’t save the genre by driving everybody out of it!
Which brings me to my second problem with this quote. Who’s “THEY”? Was there a large memo that said “don’t make angry reviewing”? Did god come down and say there was 10 new commandments and all of them were “don’t make angry reviewing shows?”? Does the youtube user agreeement say “the creation of angry reviewing shows is prohibited?”? By saying “THEY” Eric is implying that the people in this video are somehow responsible for the oversaturation of the genre (and I’m not even convinced the genre is over-saturated) and apparently they deserve to be his victims because they know it was wrong but kept doing it. So apparently the creator of Ranting robots has made like 200 angry reviewing shows, all of which lack substance but are widely popular enough to damage the genre (like a Seltzer and Friedburg film) all of which is totally bogus because no one intentionally kills a genre and Eric is despicable for casting the crew of Ranting Robots as the villain simply because they decided to pick a hobby that is apparently popular (Seriously the only Angry reviewer I’ve seen who isn’t mainstream is charlietheatari… yeah I’m not kidding either, it would really help if Eric provided examples of the genre being overdone).
My third problem lies with the bad writing that has persisted up to this point? Is there a particular reason why Eric needed to drag this intro on and on for two minutes? Here’s what he could have done:
“We know there’s a lot of talent in the angry reviewing genre and there are many more people who do what’s popular in the hopes of making it big. But there’s a famous law out there that says “90% of everything is crap” a paraphrase of sturgeon’s law, a law pertaining to horrible over-saturation of the sci-fi fiction genre. The 10 percent is worth dying for but today we’re looking at the 90%. Let’s take a look at Ranting Robots shall we?” There, you see? You don’t have to talk about the genre being dead or some shit you can’t prove. You don’t insult the people who are actually trying to be innovative. You don’t throw out a bunch of pointless insults to people that will get you in trouble later and most importantly you set up the review in less than a minute! How egotistical do you have to be to stretch a 15 second message to 2 minutes and half by being preachy, attempting to be an expert in a field you know nothing about, making forecasts based on no evidence and all to make fun of some group that is more successful than you are? This fucking egotistical as Eric shows us how!
3:04 “is it possible to make a show that’s even lamer and less inspired than your average guy sitting in a webcamera talking about his likes and dislikes?” Wow I don’t even know what to say. Its like Eric is trying to tell his audience something about the quality of his own show but then again that would assume Eric was trying to tell a joke when he is in fact still doing HIS GODDAMN INTRO. 3 FUCKING MINUTES TO DO AN INTRO!? I thought you were done at the 2 and half minute mark. Fuck, where’s the editing and proof reading here? Did you really need 3 minutes to say “Angry reviewing is a dying genre, many people attempt it and fail, here’s ranting robots”!? If this is fast paced I can’t want to see what slow pace is!
3:08 “Yes there is, the answer is, Ranting Robots” I honestly don’t see what’s so uninspired here about robots. Yeah I mean sure, robot voices isn’t exactly new and I’m pretty sure there’s been another review show with robots as its hosts but what exactly is wrong with this? Well let’s see what Eric says shall we?
3:24 “Yeah! Ranting Robots” Yeah I could have swore this was a review. Seriously this video is really bloated. GET ON WITH THE REVIEW ALREADY!
3:34 “Its just two guys in flimsy looking costumes… reviewing things. Okay so we’re pretty much done here right?” Wow… this is just lazy. Like what? The joke speaks for itself? I sure hope Eric realizes that wearing a costume is really fucking annoying and hard to pull off. Its hot, unbearably so and you’re lucky if you can see shit when you’re wearing that crap. I seriously don’t get the joke here. Is Eric trying to say innovation is bad? He was just ranting about how innovation is necessary and that people keep doing the same thing… now its wrong?
3:51 Eric says that the costumes are cheap and were likely found in a dumpster before cutting himself off and saying that they are worth roughly 100 dollars. Because he couldn’t have simply edited out the joke at the costumes being cheap and therefore save himself and the audience some stupidity. I am now convinced this video was not edited or otherwise proofread.
4:10 Eric just names off really generic complaints… with no respect towards the actual intent of the show. Eric just says the costumes look cheap, even though they’re fucking costumes and they cost money (which even he admits) because its A-okay just to make fun of someone because they were willing to put themselves in costume to entertain you.
Eric even complains about the monotone voice work because apparently retro 80s robots should talk normally… I mean wow Eric you have no taste for innovation of any kind. Why don’t you just say they don’t deserve to exist because you said so and cut the review. If you’re not going to try then why bother? There are literally not standards in his review, doing anything that isn’t generic is apparently despicable. I bet Eric hates water because its a liquid! Naming a problem that isn’t a problem because its actually a design feature is not what a critic does! Eric is old enough to know about disco robots and the sterotype of robots having monotone voices. Speaking of which, if these people are speaking in a monotone voice then how is this an angry reviewing show? Couldn’t even get this far without a logic implosion could you Eric?
Eric also just makes baseless claims about unfunny jokes. Hey Eric it might help if you showed a terrible joke… you know… like a good reviewer?
4:14 “these guys are the zenith of everything wrong with review shows” Really? Let me take a look at their work.
Huh that wasn’t bad… the humor is actually pretty meta… as in its actually there! Heck at least they talk about the material. This is actually a review show, compare contrast to RAR by Eric Gaede where even the most simple opinion is left without evidence.
4:24 “So I guess these guys woke up one morning and decided you know what we still don’t have enough crappy review shows on the internet so by god did they come up with the mother of all absolute nothing to do with video game gimmicks” OH MY GOD… the things wrong with this statement.
“So I guess these guys woke up one morning and decided you know what we still don’t have enough crappy review shows on the internet” UH WHAT? NO NO NO SERIOUSLY WHAT? Hey Eric are you really that egotistical to pretend that you know how a show as created and that everyone thinks the same way you do? All data suggests that YES is the answer but I’d also like to ask where is the evidence for the statement that there are too many crappy review shows on the internet? No one jumps into a genre because it is oversaturated but then again I wouldn’t be surprised that Eric is this fucking dumb because this is guy who promised Mr.KILL an apology and then didn’t give it!
“so by god did they come up with the mother of all absolute nothing to do with video game gimmicks” You heard him folks. I guess robots simply aren’t in video games anymore. I’d also like to note they review movies but apparently that would require Eric to waste some calories to move his mouse and push buttons on the keyboard which he e-begged for.
So I guess these robots will never ever catch on.
4:44 Eric just decides to mock the hand motion they move which can be aptly described as the stereotypical robot hand movements in which one makes karate chops forward and back. I seriously don’t get what the critique is because the hand motions have literally nothing to do with a review show. But I can’t wait to see what really terrible advice Eric gives for this!
4:56 Eric says that they should hire a group of dancers doing the robot and possibly buy their wardrobe. Because that’s what you want in a review! DANCING will be very conducive to the review! And hey let’s replace the 80’s robots costumes with spraypainted yellow shirts and skin. That’ll be healthy for everyday life! Way to be an asshole Eric, though I wasn’t expecting good advice I was expecting actual advice.
5:07 Eric suggests taking acting lessons from some random robot with programmed lines. Uh yeah I’m sure that non-sentient robot will be capable of teaching. Is there ae joke here… you know aside from Eric being utterly insane?
5:16 “Just give him [that non-sentient robot] your lines, he’ll do the acting for you. Now that is a review show I would stay glued to from here to eternity.” Please STOP LYING ERIC. I know you wouldn’t watch that in fact the monotone voice is what gives the show comedic value. What would be point of making the show more generic by giving them normal voices?
5:17-5:30 Eric decides to use his terrible audio editing skills. The sound volume goes very high to the point I’m sure I could sue Eric for ear damage. “what can be said about mario brothers, it is a terrible piece of shit. I am a robot and therefore cannot poop but playing this game I learned how HERPUERPDERPHERPU*incomprehensible shit I hate you Eric, its like you’re a sociopath or something*” Yeah I’m not exaggerating, the robot dialogue just cuts out to some weird crap that is apparently Eric’s attempt to tell a joke. The crickets that can be heard are not apart of the video but that’s because this video is ungodly awful.
Also mario brothers sucks? Seriously? And I thought Chris Bores sucks as a reviewer…
5:44 Eric mocks the fact that the Ranting robots hate games that other people hate. OH MY GOSH is Eric discovering the correlation between a game being terrible and everyone playing it hating it? NOPE Eric groans when Ranting Robots admit they hate Superman 64… because apparently its not okay to hate an obviously terrible game because…. well Eric wills it I guess.
6:03 Eric just decides to take a quote where the ranting robots say the wii virtual console sucks balls and that alot of balls are in the mouth. “As you can see, very intelligence and well thought out humor”
Eric you just said that Mario brothers was a terrible piece of shit and then had a robot talk about pooping before going incoherent. You are the last person to say anyone does not have humor. At least Eric is trying to present evidence but this is 6 minutes in, its too little too late. Hopefully Eric will show more substantial evidence because let’s face it, ball jokes aren’t exactly too generic and even then one joke does not a reviewing show make. Of course this RAR episode has yet to make a joke so I’m really concerned as to what reality Eric thinks he’s in.
6:10 Eric doesn’t present anymore evidence and decides to say that only 13 year old kids would like the show because its A-okay to be 6 minutes in and not present anything more than a quote mine as evidence. Granted the humor on the Ranting Robots show is violent and often times nasty, that would make it more adult especially when they reference things that kids would not find funny. Eric does realize that swearing and mentions of drug and sex obviously is for a mature audience right? I don’t exactly think people who like swearing are going to be 13 year olds especially if they don’t want their parents taking their computers away from them.
6:31 Eric says he’s atheist and that his stance to religion is that people can practice what they want and people shouldn’t force their religion onto others… SO you’re agnostic… because atheism means you believe religion shouldn’t exist and god is not real. Agnostic means you don’t give a shit either way. Bad writing or Eric misstating his stance? You decide!
6:44 Eric then plays a clip where the Ranting Robots say that human bible is nonsense because they are robots. Eric decides to say that they’ve decided to take on religion as a dicussion topic.
*FACEPALM* NO THEY DID NOT. This is quote mining. The characters in ranting robots pretend to be apathetic evil robots that wish to wipe out humanity. That’s that joke! To pad out this stupidity Eric decides to pretend even more that they spent an entire episode on the bible specifically a ‘top 20 horrible things in the bible’ episode. I cannot find or otherwise confirm that such an episode even exists and considering that no flak is present at all on the channel, the like bar or anywhere I can safely conclude that Eric is lying out of his ass.
Edit: The video does exist as the rant robots have stated the following when asked about it:
Tokusatsu Fanatic (Should I be surprised that Ben Wagner is the one doing the asking?)
20 hours ago
So what happened to the “Top 20” video about the bible video?
10 hours ago
The Google Analytics software was showing a number of humans unsubscribing because of that video. We need as many indoctrinated humans as possible to make the Robot Uprising happen.
So yes the top 20 bible video does exist however Eric seems to have caught the video well after the creators realized it wasn’t worth it and have taken it away and thus very few people actually watched it. It doesn’t help that Eric pretends as if this is their mainstream material when even a cursory glance at their video list shows they mostly do games and not religious debates. As for how bad the video actually was… well we’ll never know because Eric says he saved the video but deletes any comments asking him to go post the damn thing so people can understand what he’s talking about!
7:22 Eric says its something you really need to see. Yeah I can’t find it Eric. I tried and I wrote down “Ranting robots Bible” and got nothing. Either the video is gone though obviously there should be a ripple effect or you quote mined them again.
8:00 Eric continues to fail to notice the ranting robots are being sarcastic.
8:34 Eric decides to advertise another person’s channel. Oh boy I love cronyism. He advertises Nonstampcollector… though I fail to see the point considering that this has nothing to do with angry reviewing. What does this have to do with Angry reviewing exactly? That bible debates are bad or something? Eric then says that the ranting robots are making a mockery atheists… that was the joke you moron! I haven’t even seen the video and I’m pretty sure it was sarcastic.
9:00 oh wow Eric says he’s actually going to take a look at one of the Ranting Robot reviews. Queue another clip with the ranting robots talking about jesus. You have ONE JOB ERIC, that is to review… not quote mine and focus on details that don’t have to do with anything! Its is a fallacy to state that all religious topics are off topic because people will start fights over them. Its kinda over folks!
9:22 Eric continues to not do his goddamn job by repeatedly pussying out when the bible is mentioned because that’s what you do as a reviewer, just piece together the parts you don’t like while ignoring that there are plenty of episodes that have nothing to do with the bible. Like the one I just posted here!
9:40 Eric says Jesus Christ for no reason. I would find this funny if Eric was actually trying to be funny as opposed to an egotistical jerk. Eric decides to say that the south park stick of truth review was very anti-religious and that they used the jew class in the game to be anti-semetic… even though it wasn’t. I’d like to note that even though Eric targeted this episode, most people found it funny and the dislike bar is relatively unchanged with an overwhelming majority of likes. Most people got the joke Eric, why didn’t you?
10:30 Eric just keeps showing them making jokes. Eric pretend that they’re shock value jokes… they’re not. you suck Eric.
11:00 Eric says they make too many prostitute jokes even though he fails to notice that robots have no reason to care about prostitutes. But hey why give a crap about humor when you just pretend that humor is the problem with the show?
11:20 Eric states that don’t actually review the game. Uh no Eric they do review game. Get off the sauce and actually watch an episode without lying about its contents.
11:32 “You’ve seen one review you’ve seen them all. If you want to hear crappy racist sex jokes delivered in monotone for 8 minutes on average…” Yeah Eric because each review is apparently the same… another trademark of you not bothering to actually do a review. Bet you watched like 3 videos and called it a day didn’t you? They don’t regularly make jew jokes (I see its only in the south park review) and racism is non-existent. Prostitute jokes are nowhere near prevalent either. Seriously all I have to do is watch a single episode and nothing Eric says is true. I’m really tired of how generic and lame these RAR’s are. It’s always this sucks, give bad advice, there’s nothing redeemable FIN.
11:50 Eric shows a clip of the ranting robots talking about the indiegogo campaign, not realizing its a sarcastic joke. The robot character even says they want a billion dollars even though the campaign asks for $500 only. The rewards are also hilarious to read but of course Eric decides to take the joke seriously and thinks they’re e-begging. Then again when Mr.Kill asked for an apology Eric thought Mr.Kill wanted a bribe.
12:28 Eric says the Ranting Robots are complete nobodies that would ruin a party. Hmmm let’s take a look at the description shall we?
“Don’t get me wrong, I don’t hate these guys, i’m sure they are awesome and fun-to-be-around dudes. But I wouldn’t watch their show again under the penalty of poking my scrotum with a pitchfork. Which incidentally, also adequately describes how I felt listening to their robot voicework.” -Eric
So yeah folks Eric doesn’t hate these guys but he thinks they’re total nobodies who ruin everything they touch. Gotta lie as much as possible do you Eric? I love the fact that the ranting robots are actually pretty funny and try to make jokes while Eric here is as generic and boring as possible. Could his complaints get anymore formulaic?
Eric didn’t even bother to note that the campaign ended months ago and in fact doesn’t even note what it was about. The one Eric was looking about was the ranting robots asking for a console expansion so they can do more game reviews.
Boy it would really take talent if Eric were to point out that they’ve done this multiple times….
13:00 video ends with Asalieri being a smug jackass.
Well you can’t blame me for trying can you?
Major Problems with this RAR:
1. Inconsistent use of the word angry reviewing and video game reviewing. You cannot state that angry reviewing is dying and then suddenly switch between terms Eric. Angry reviewing and video game reviewing are two different things. The ranting robots are in no way even similar to AVGN either so I don’t understand why the first 3 minutes of this review was about the angry reviewing genre dying only to suddenly talk about video game reviewing as if they’re the same thing.
2. Mistaking design decisions for legit problems. This is equivalent for making fun of dark souls because its third person hack and slash game and saying you hate it because it doesn’t have a M-16 automatic assault rifle. It doesn’t help that Eric’s suggestions are terrible and had he some talent maybe it would came off as a joke; instead it came off as smug, disgusting and egotistic. Not everything is made for you Eric and maybe just maybe you should reflect that in your reviews.
3. The lack of humorous content. The closest thing to a joke here was something about not knowing what a peanut flavored game is and some poor voice over of a robot. You can’t say someone else is humorous when you demonstrate a clear lack of humor yourself and expect people to take your word for it. Maybe if Eric just got to the point, didn’t make jokes he can’t make work then this complaint wouldn’t be a problem.
4. Pointless advertising. What was the point of saying that Nonstampcollector was a focal point of atheist material? Wasn’t the first 3 minutes to setup the fact that these people in the review can’t do video game reviews or angry reviews? Shouldn’t you advertise someone who does video game reviews without being atheist or religiously antagonistic? Why spend time talking about a bible episode no one can find and why didn’t Eric at least cover one full episode? This is literally 13 minutes of filler.
5. Loads upon loads of non-research. Let’s check two facts here and tell me if you they’re correct.
Clouds are white. The video game review genre is dead and people really shouldn’t bother to create anymore material in the genre. The fact about clouds is easily verifiable unless you’re color blind (in which case my condolences) while its no where near clear if the video game review genre is dead. I could also talk about his statement about angry reviewing but in this video Eric clearly meant video game review genre because the ranting robots aren’t angry reviewers. The fact of the matter is that video game reviewing can’t be considered dead unless the audiences go away too. Think of disco and forced memes like the harlem shake. The audience for those have simply disappeared and no one wants to be associated with them anymore. Video game reviews? That’s like construction work in that there’s always more and more games for people to review at any given time. PC game reviewers in particular get a lot of crap to work though most of which hasn’t been reviewed yet. To say that the reviewing genre is devoid of fresh topics is just ignorant. Of course Eric could avoid the issue by saying something like “retro games have all been reviewed to death” but that’s not what he said! Likewise Eric could have been responsible and actually watched through an entire episode of Ranting robots but instead just decided to throw out generic they suck complaints demonstrating how immature and unprofessional he is. I watched through this entire video to say every single thing that was wrong with it and yet Eric couldn’t watch an 8 minute video.
One good thing I can say however is that Eric’s fans haven’t gone on a rampage. There’s no trolling assholes messing with the ranting robots as far as I can see and most if not all their videos have overwhelming likes. So score 1 for the fans of Eric as they’ve demonstrated something Eric hasn’t, Responsibility!
Well its been a while since we’ve talked about the antics of Eric Gaede but Eric appears to be in hiding mode since its the last phase of his slacktivist plan anyway. As a reminder its always something like this:
1. Pick someone you hate/ This subject makes me really angry!
2. Repeatedly misrepresent them
3. Act like you know something and make suggestions that will get people killed/in trouble
4. Don’t know anything about your opponent, just pretend you do
5. Run and hide. Call people haters for saying the truth
Hilariously enough, Eric Gaede’s recent escapade involving the Irate Gamer sucks blog followed this exact model. The ironic part about this is that this blog (batdansucks blog) is that it was meant to be a booby trap for Chris Bores. Did we get Chris Bores? Yeah we did but I sure wasn’t expecting to see people who were far far worse than Chris Bores. Chris Bore’s record for harassment generally involves stupid puppet accounts no one will care about and can generally be ignored but Eric has resorted to in real life harassment as shown with his antics in the Tkyle break up or the harassment with other individuals. Part of the reason why Eric Gaede gets away with most of it is his tenacity and utter delusional antics. Eric absolutely loves flat out lying to his opponents. Inexperienced people will simply double-take or otherwise consider backing off because let’s face it, you’d never expect the guy your arguing with to say something so blatantly false its like he’s giving away the argument to you. Eric never addresses the entirety of his oppositions arguments often times going for just one or two points of argument again using flimsy evidence that leaves inexperienced people scratching their heads as to how someone could be this stupid. This is known as the chewbacca defense, its not a real defense and its entirely fallacious but it works because people operate based on mood not facts so if Eric can make it *look* like his opposition is wrong even when most if not all the evidence is clear cut against him then he’ll look like the good person. Unfortunately Eric never really succeeds and tends to only make a flimsy truce because his opposition is not an idiot and simply wants to “bury hatchet” because there was no point in there being a hatchet in the first place. I’d like to point that many of Asalieri’s fan and Asalieri himself try to act as if Asalieri’s ability to get people to stop feuding with him is somehow “proof” that he’s a good person. No its not because it falls victim to the confounding variable predicament in which people who don’t know logic forget to check for a third or more factors involved in decision making. There many people who hate Asalieri but few if any of them would walk up and punch him because its illegal and its a waste of time. Why would a professional who has a career and fans to please waste time feuding with Asalieri who’s so full of himself that he thinks he still hasn’t done anything wrong and constantly breaks his promises? Oh yeah that’s right! Asalieri is well known for breaking promises (such as his promise not to make fun of TGWTG anymore or his statement that his relationship with Irate Gamer was just an april fools joke) so that makes all the truces (or I mean “Burying the hatchet” because apparently Eric likes thinking of axes) even more pointless doesn’t it?
As for Eric’s relationship with Irate Gamer? Well there’s not much to say here aside from Eric decided to be a hypocrite and its perfect for him because they both have no semblance of commitment or integrity and so they were happy to simply act as if all the fat jokes Asalieri had made about Irate Gamer was A-okay and all the insults towards Asalieri’s family were A-okay. I would like to note that that in the soon to be described event, Asalieri is still pissed because he saw one comment and it was a comment that didn’t make fun of his weight and simply described what had happened to him over the last few months.
But enough with the introduction its fairly clear Asalieri uses his relationship with Irate Gamer to target the Irate Gamer Sucks blog made especially obvious by the kinds of insults he levels at the blog. He says its “heavily censored” and full of people who hate him for no reason. Really Eric? They hate you for no logically justifiable reason? Then maybe you shouldn’t have wrote this on your fanboy’s world video (I find it funny how this one video seems to have started the point where you lost a lot of fans and got a lot of haters): “So a few days ago I read what had to have been the most batdan insane…er batSHIT insane comment I have ever read”. Yeah in case you didn’t see the cheap-shot there Batdan is the author of the blog and the entire video is exaggerating a comment to pretend Batdan is running an insane asylum. It’s a shame the video wasn’t funny either especially since the exaggerated dialogue that Eric came up with is the kind of crap that Eric Gaede encourages his fans to write and behave. Also apparently Asalieri is mad about having his comments deleted but I know that was over two years ago so why the hell he acting like that’s something to be mad about when he does the same thing and has deleted way more comments then Batdan ever has is beyond me.
As an added bonus I have the comments he attempted to make that day in january. He attempted to make three, all were deleted and the blog had visits from several of his cronies making doublethink arguements about how the people on the blog deserve to “not exist”. And I’m not joking about the doublethink because they were claiming Asalieri’s a good person but not noticing the apparent “goodness” of trying to curb freedom of speech and shutting down a blog because its different and Asalieri doesn’t like different.
Anywho here’s comment one All comments are seperated by lines to prevent you from accidently interpreting my responses as one of Eric’s really stupid comments. I’d call his comments shitposting but that would imply that Asalieri can write something that’s not stupid.
Asalieri has left a new comment on the post “Year End List: Top 11 Worst IG Moments of 2012”:
must the culprit NECESSARILY have had to have been Irate Gamer/someone related to his channel?

Wow a religious swear for no reason either. FYI Asalieri is refering to Crywolf productions; a short-lived movement that focused on using DMCA takedowns on Irate Gamer parodies and detractors. Really Eric? The people who are taking down Anti-IrateGamer videos did it because they had nothing to do with Irate Gamer?
Here’s message two. Here Cry Wolf productions is referenced directly
Asalieri has left a new comment on the post “Year End List: Top 11 Worst IG Moments of 2012”:
Crywolf was infamous, but he had a method; basically, you had a video making fun of IG, he’d take you down. Why on Earth would an Irate Gamer fanboy decide out of the blue to false flag AVGN? This is the logical disconnect I see constantly with this blog.

“This is the logical disconnect I see constantly with this blog.”. Huh what? did I use the “Jackie chan what? you stupid fuck” too early? Irate Gamer is constantly feuding with AVGN. He blames AVGN for just about everything that happens to him. But then again I’m not surprised I did say That Asalieri loves flat out lying and he did here because he knows that Irate Gamer hates AVGN, that’s why he joined up with Irate Gamer and when these two joined up we got the shitty E-begging spoof and from what I’ve heard there’s a cheapshot in the latest IG episode in which a character directly says “Fuck you AVGN”. The fanboys (and I mean the fanboys, not the fanbase aka the rational people) of Irate Gamer are like Charlietheatari they write insane shit and constantly need to pretend they’re bigger than other people. Why the heck wouldn’t they false flag someone? They’ve got nothing to lose!
Yeah Eric you just said everyone has a logical disconnect aka have a problem with their brains. If only you were slightly less careless with your language or you know could stop FLAT OUT LYING then maybe your series of comments wouldn’t have been banned.
Well those three comments summed up a lot of problems that Eric Gaede has with logic and telling the truth. I am honestly surprised people actually bother to talk with Eric as opposed to simply ban him. Of course I probably won’t ever ban Eric even if he comes back because it’ll be funnier to watch Eric lie in the sheer face of defeat and then grab defeat from the jaws of defeat, polish defeat with a dirty towel and use a marker to write the word victory crudely over the words and then say he won. Eric is still pretending that I edited his comments just like I said he would and yet hilariously he has no evidence for that.
Well here comes the long one guys. The conversation at the Irate Gamer sucks blog was massive. I’ll also have to include other people’s comments and yes that means Mr.Kill ultra (frequent commentator on the Irate Gamer sucks blog) will be there though he owns Asalieri quite a lot actually. You can see the conversation here http://irategamersucks.blogspot.ca/2014/04/the-end-is-here-story-arc-is-over.html though be sure to click the load more button near the bottom of the page.
I’m reading Asalieri’s comments about this blog. It’s hilarious, he says that it’s heavily censored with no freedom of speech.
And his fanboys tell Daniel Hirsch to kill himself. How mature.
Feltzer342April 23, 2014 at 6:25 PM
“Heavily censored with no freedom of speech”, my ass, Asalieri. It just goes to show how little that fat tub of lard knows about this blog, not to mention he’s saying that out of hatred and bias for BatDan.
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 7:13 AM
well then, let’s see how long this comment remains here, that is i1f I’m even allowed to post it! Batdan HAS deleted my posts here in the past, and he HAS banned me from posting even innocuous and inconsequential comments.
And Asalieri’s comment is still there. Smooth work Asalieri but given how much of beating you got it might have been better if you got banned. You see Batdan was actually trying to keep you from pulling your pants down and waving your dick at everyone but since you insisted so batdan let you learn the hard way. “innocuous and inconsequential comments.” Wow lying on the first comment. Nice!
It wasn’t a quote it was a paraphrase… God you’re dumb Eric Gaede. Gloin made a paraphrase, you know that thing where you state what the other person said in their own words? Hey Mr.KILL can we get a dumbass certificate here? Eric needs one badly!
Edit: Mr.KIll has provided one. and explicitedly stated it was because Eric did not uphold his end of the bargain as shown near the end of the conversation (Eric promised Mr.KILL an apology video… that video does not exist, silence is not an apology Eric).
Nice to meet you too, Feltzer! I’m flattered you called me ‘little’, considering my well known girth! I used to hate the hell out of Batdan, for spreading lies about me. Nowadays, it’s a ‘meh’ feeling. I suspect it must be the same for him.
Uh Eric? What lies? What lies did Batdan spread about you? What do you mean its ‘meh’ feeling? You’re commenting on the blog aren’t you and you still say negative things about Batdan. Its practically a mirror of the feud Irate Gamer and AVGN here since Batdan utterly ignores you. Given that Asalieri never brings these points back up its fairly clear that he he lied again. Less than 3 comments here and he’s already fucked up but then again that’s just like the last time back in January… funny how history repeats.
Asalieri, I’ll say this to you: I apologize for my ad hominem attacks and admit I was wrong in quoting you. There, I admitted to my mistakes, so, are there going to be any hostilities between us? I wish for that not to be, and I have no desire to argue.
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 9:43 AM
“banned me from posting even innocuous and inconsequential comments.”
The last comment you made said we were all mindless drones… Everywhere you go you attempt to start a fight, pretend there’s no issue at all and then leave without solving anything. Not saying that you’re doing that here but its just a general trend.
Asalieri April 24, 2014 at 10:54 AM
Feltzer, I concur with that sentiment, man. Shake?
Asalieri April 24, 2014 at 10:56 AM
Kill, I’m not even attempting to start a fight. I would, however, like it if you guys were a lot more honest about what you guys say. Not only about me, either. I can admit to having gone overboard on my channel in the past. Can you guys honestly not see that in yourselves, though?
“Hi Mr.Kill, I’m not here to start a fight I just think you guys should stop lying and being generally dishonest people and allow me to make fun of the person who provides the articles you like and you have deep problems that you can’t see because they’re problems that are deep or some shit”- Lasersquad’s paraphrasing.
So yeah here’s how you prove you not here to start a fight, tell your soon to be ass-kicker that he has issues with honesty and deep seated problems that only you can see. “I can admit to having gone overboard on my channel in the past” Asalieri will never bring this back up and will still act as if he has no problems and that Mr.Kill has no reason to be angry with him. The move in which one apologizes but does so in a petty and goal related manner is a very insincere one and essentially says to the other person that I know the things I did was bad but it was your fault so I’m cool. The worst part about this is that Mr.Kill ultra knows quite alot about the shit Asalieri has pulled in the past so this is the last kind of apology he should have gave. Unsurprisingly Mr.Kill doesn’t take this well.
Asalieri April 24, 2014 at 11:05 AM
and it’s not like I need to convince you or anything, obviously, we differ on our opinions of people. But all this namecalling back and forth, on both our ends… don’t you get sick of it? I hadn’t brought you guys up in a long time until last night, when I just decided to blurt my mind and feelings out (prompted by the fact that you guys just can’t seem to stop bringing ME up, in posts I read here from the last 3 days or so) what’s the end game here? We don’t have to get along, sure. But do we really have to take every potshot we can at each other?
So here Eric is essentially saying that the his opposition should apologize because he won’t. Nice work Eric! BTW Eric references his own ADD here in that he says he just brought up Irate Gamer sucks blog now or at least he would be referencing his ADD if his youtube channel dicussion page didn’t show that he was making fun of the Irate Gamer sucks blog for a few weeks before hand. “prompted by the fact that you guys just can’t seem to stop bringing ME up, in posts I read here from the last 3 days or so” Yeah this is bullshit, Eric is refering to a roughly two comments that make fun of him and Mr.Kill is going to tear him a new one for flat out lying here.
Mr.Kill Ultra April 24, 2014 at 12:07 PM
“you guys just can’t seem to stop bringing ME up”
Well of course you were brought up, you were in the most recent episode. You can’t pretend that you’re presence there doesn’t warrant discussion.
“I would, however, like it if you guys were a lot more honest about what you guys say.”
Unless you’re trying to say that you want us to stop talking about you and spreading evidence that supports the negative things we said about you. Seriously? Pretending that what people have said is wrong without evidence and right from the get go… Have you not learned anything from the past 20 times you’ve been in a conversation like this?
“I just decided to blurt my mind and feelings out”
I’m sorry but Asalieri, you make way too many generalizations. Its very prominent in your use of language. One or two individuals here actually talk about you and you act as if the entire blog is against you. We’re sick of this because you choose to treat as if we are in a feud when all it takes for this to end is for you to stop talking about us or otherwise stop making generalizations about the people on this blog. I mean, you seriously don’t expect people to see your channel discussion page do you? Just look at this.
“Basically, if you have anything remotely positive to say about Chris, it’s prohibited there. Now tell me how free and fair you morons are.”
How very diplomatic… The only people who get their comments deleted are the people who repeatedly cause fights and only attempt to start fights. Making complete generalizations about other people based on very anecdotal evidence is just disgusting. Even people like Johnny awesome are allowed to post here and his comments are essentially “IG ROXXORS, YOU GUYS SUXXORS”. If you have been reading these comments sections for the last 3 days you would have seen his comments.
“in posts I read here from the last 3 days or so”
Which brings me to this point, or exhibit A. Claiming that you’ve done research and that your facts are justified. Did you really read the last comments made 3 days ago? This article is less than a 2 days old. If you want to back your opinion don’t pretend that you’re well versed in the situation when you aren’t.
Then there’s crap like this comment where you completely mix two blogs.
“They aren’t THERE anymore. I remember the conversation I attempted on that blog too, where Lasersquad had the gall to alter what I was writing. How’s that for honesty?”
Lasersquad isn’t on this blog and he doesn’t run it either. And in addition you kept changing the subject in the youtube discussion. But I guess you realized you don’t want to continue a feud against a blog you don’t even read or know anything about so you wrote this:
“what’s the end game here? We don’t have to get along, sure. But do we really have to take every potshot we can at each other?”
This blog will always exists to write about the exploits of Irate Gamer. Its the only website that actually follows Irate Gamer’s work and provides criticism on it. It is a niche demographic and it has nothing to do with taking potshots at you. If you wanted to talk about the explicit state of affairs sure, but then why try to maintain we’re a totalitarian state? Why make generalizations about everyone here and pretend that you have justified point. The current state of affairs here is that we don’t like you because of you have spent more time saying how we’re apparently evil and censor people while at the same time quoting our comments out of context, and saying we have no right to exist. This has nothing to do with us hating you but rather the fact that you haven’t rescinded that rhetoric or even ramped it down a notch. In short the only reason we’re even a teensy hostile to you is based on your behavior to us. If you have something against batdan you can say it but targeting everyone else was a very undiplomatic move.
Remind me never to piss Mr.Kill off. Speaking of which this is kind of the reason why this article wasn’t made immediately, Mr.Kill practically shut Eric down. He hits practically everything I would have mentioned. Eric targeting everyone other than the people he has a beef with? check! Eric lying about just now having to do something? check! Eric not learning, Check! Eric being way more insulting than the people he’s calling out? Check!
It’s almost as if I don’t need to write an article or as if the article was written already. He’s even quoting Eric’s youtube comments (which he has now deleted just to make his claims of censorship even more hypocritical)
Mr.Kill Ultra April 24, 2014 at 12:09 PM
” They all love to say i’m a hypocrite and a lowlife, yet none of them realize any of their own hypocrisies and how they’ve actually become infinitely worse than anything i’ve ever said or done during the course of my youtube channel”
Eric if you’re trying to stop people from talking negatively about you. Calling them all hypocrites responsible for ruining your life is not the way to go. Try to at least let your opinion on youtube match the mood you are attempt establish on foreign areas. Saying they are somehow worse then despite the fact that none of us here do anything more than discuss your involvement with Irate Gamer is just sickening.
“You can say I deserve it all you want, but in the end it only means you would have to agree with the kinds of tactics some people have resorted to.”
How exactly does saying that you deserve it mean that its okay for the “some kinds of tactics some people have resorted to”. Did you even catch the guy who did that ad you were referring to? Heck the problem in the last few quotes is here in this one too. You continually refuse to believe there’s a middle ground. But I digress, what exactly do you want Eric?
TL:DR Eric? Is there a point to this other than a weak attempt to make a truce? I can understand that you want people to stop saying negative things about you, but for that to happen you’ll have to write something sincere and meaningful; not something that makes the same mistakes that gave people legitimate cause to be mad at you.
” They all love to say i’m a hypocrite and a lowlife, yet none of them realize any of their own hypocrisies and how they’ve actually become infinitely worse than anything i’ve ever said or done during the course of my youtube channel”
Sorry but I’ve just to tear this quote a new one. Eric you have personally come to people’s houses to intimidate them, tried to abuse the legal system to sue Jfreedan over 100 times in an attempt to get him to stop his perfectly legal work, backed up broke lying repro cartridge sellers, made fun of children, have lied more times than even politicians would like to and done such sloppy work that I literally had to conclude that you were the worst person on the list of people who fell for the IP logging operation. You beat the guy who joined you in the conspiracy to sue Jfreedan and of whom was so badly reviled that he had to flee to the Caribbean and quit the internet! You beat the guy who infiltrates fansub groups and destroys them for fun! You are far far worse than a bunch of pranksters who were kind enough to arrange the prank so it hit you during the middle of day and not during the night where far worse things could have happened!
This the comment that made this article have the title “It’s all about me” Because that’s all you ever think about Eric. You only think about yourself and treat everything else as an extension of yourself. This is cheap flimsy chewbacca defense that essentially consists of “But look at all the badguys? I’m not as bad as them” who care Eric, you’re a terrible person and you still deserve the crap you get for being a terrible person. Perhaps if you didn’t do things like leak your private address to show how “tough” you are then maybe you wouldn’t be complaining but given your record for lying I’m pretty sure you set up that prank given how unnaturally unrepeatable and convenient the prank was (and you even showed your address during the video). What Eric doesn’t seem to realize is that he is responsible for the prank whether he really set up the ad or not because he was the idiot who made people angry at him and then hid behind his family and gave out his address. Tempting fate and then getting punished for it is not something to complain about especially when your many flaws are so easily found by anyone doing basic research on you.
Asalieri April 24, 2014 at 12:27 PM
you’re right, that IS Tl;dr. Gimme a second to read it all. Real quick though, you guys brought me up in the PREVIOUS post, days before I even appeared in that Irate Gamer vid. So what’s your excuse THERE, Kill? I do believe in a middle ground. Just because you refuse to see it doesn’t mean I don’t have one. What do I want? I dunno, I haven’t the faintest idea sometimes. For now, I dunno, maybe less attacks from you, less vitriol, considering i’ve toned down my own rhetoric a LOT since 2011 would be nice. A little credit for being something other than the evil sociopath you paint me as would be nice. Perhaps the honesty I asked of you would be nice? I WAS being sincere just now.
Wow Eric way to be a jackass just tell someone right away that they’re post was too long and you couldn’t read it. You know its implied that people will give you enough time to understand their message. This isn’t you’re crappy skype conversation with reviewtopia, where you and 8 or so groupies just bombarded the reviewtopia guys with name calling. I would like to add that the reviewtopia guys were promised a clear and non-hostile talk with Asalier over why he weren’t hired but apparently Eric thinks that was a “fair” conversation.
Oh and I just love how he randomly capitalizes words. It’s like all star-batman and robin where random words are bolded. The hilarious part is Asalieri thinks he’s owned Mr.Kill here because he for once is not completely lying in that he’s referencing a real comment thread. The problem is that the comment thread is less than six comments long and isn’t particularly hostile or full lies.
“Perhaps the honesty I asked of you would be nice? I WAS being sincere just now”
Smooth. You know Mr.KIll said you were undiplomatic for a reason. Giving people 0 time to meet your demands or in this case your demands for “honesty” is the exact definition of undiplomatic. Heck you just insinuated that Mr.KIll is still lying Eric… and you haven’t even read his criticism yet (just the TL:DR section) so you’re essentially proving everything he said was right in less than 4 sentences. Good job eric!
Random Man April 24, 2014 at 12:31 PM
…Y’know, Asa kind of a has a point. People on this blog HAVE gone a bit too far before (I can name at least one incident) and, to my knowledge, he hasn’t done anything all that bad recently. All he did was cameo in the Irate Gamer finale, and it’s not like he did anything bad in it – just cheer.
Eh obligatory person who wants to give Asalieri the benefit of the doubt. You know he just said that you and everyone on the blog are lying scumbags right? That you like to suck Batdan’s cock? That you don’t have lives and never will get life partners? (this is all on the youtube channel and none of these comments are deleted only the ones which got torn part by gloin and others) Yeah go ahead, give him the benefit of the clearly overwhelming doubt.
Oh well I’m probably just being mean but let’s face it, how does one be so clueless as to give someone who wants you dead, this someone having shown unflinching desire to shut you down and ensure you never get another chance to talk, a free pass? I actually read this one two or three times over just to make sure randomman wasn’t being sarcastic. Heck I actually thought a few times he was an Asalieri fan because his profiles links to his personal blog where he makes fun of reviewers (but unlike asalieri’s work it doesn’t suck!). Oh well I’m just going to conclude that in the face of inconclusive evidence, Random man is just clueless. Either way Asalieri decides to post 3 comments and does so uninterrupted. Here’s the first one:
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 12:43 PM
Kill, the tone on my comment section is due to your continued insistence in badmouthing me, which is about as diplomatic as your rhetoric against me has been. I give as good as I get. I wasn’t mixing blogs, by the way. The guy brought that other blog up, and I answered in turn. I can see how you’d think I was mixing them, seeing as there are times the rhetoric here rivals that blog’s style, although I do have to concede that you’re nowhere NEAR that incendiary or vitriolic. You do have members, such as Kiki, who take both blogs as holy scripture and who adhere to the hatred espoused by both. Teeny bit of hate? Come on man, read the comments of the last two posts that contain ‘asa’ in them. That’s pure vitriol, bro. DO you really find my answer to that as surprising?
“which is about as diplomatic as your rhetoric against me has been”
Mr.Kill’s rhetoric against Asalieri… What Rhetoric?
the art of effective or persuasive speaking or writing, especially the use of figures of speech and other compositional techniques.
Mr.Kill hasn’t written anything extensive or persuasive against Eric Gaede and he’s only involved to begin with because Eric Gaede got the site trolled. If anything Eric your constant statements against the members of the Irate Gamer sucks blog is rhetoric because you are trying to persuade people that that are not people but apparently simians who need to evolve (Oh yes I haven’t mentioned that Asalieri has told people that the people on the Irate Gamer sucks blog are monkeys. If anyone has a quote about the evolution part please post it in the comments below. you will be cited). Not keeping track of the argument and the things you’ve done Eric is going to let Mr.Kill utterly demolish you. Which he does, saving me the trouble of doing it. Here’s the second comment:
April 16th… this is 5 days before Irate Gamer put me in his review… you guys had a lengthy conversation about me two posts before this one on the blog. What prompted it? Literally, nothing. You just felt like having another go at me out of nowhere, where as usual, you misrepresent the actual events to suit whatever weird fetish you have with bringing me down. Kill, like I said. All I would want at this point is for you to give it a rest. I didn’t provoke you 9 days ago. You’re doing it of your own accord at this point. You couldn’t possibly claim *I* am causing the fights now.
Oh noes the really small comment section that is 1% of the comments posted on that page. Man the Irate Gamer sucks blog guys have gone too far especially since it was Eric’s a fanboys world video that started the fight to begin with and its laughable that Eric is still trying to flat out lie the to guy he’s apologizing to.
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 1:19 PM
last question for you Kill, before I leave you be;
do you agree with bringing people’s families into internet drama? do you think it’s an appropriate response to my videos to send an email to my daughter’s teacher telling her to watch out for me because I mistreat my kids? Do you agree with ED’s style of balls to the wall harassment? I’d like your genuine opinion of that kind of tactic. I want to see if you are actually reasonable, or just another guy who thrives on internet drama.
Ah the ever classic chewbacca defense. Seriously why don’t you just write “BUT WHAT ABOUT ME?”. Are you like 5 years old Eric? Can you think past yourself for a brief moment. And during that moment can you not lie? Oh well here’s the fun part. Mr.Kill had so many issues with this one that he had to write a massive response. It actually hit the character limit and is very thorough. I’d like to note that Eric has just ignored more than 9/10 of Mr.Kill’s argument against him in favor of “BUT WHAT ABOUT ME? I’M ERIC GAEDE I DESERVE SOMETHING!”.
I feel adding commentary on Mr.Kill comment so its in bold.
“which is about as diplomatic as your rhetoric against me has been”
Really? So apparently I haven’t been using evidence and have been lying? There’s difference between badmouthing and listing the truth. I’m surprised Mr.Kill didn’t notice that he had no rhetoric to begin with
“I wasn’t mixing blogs, by the way.”
Uh yeah you were. He asked about this blog and you switched to a conversation about the other blog. I can read youtube comment sections Eric… assuming you haven’t deleted that conversation PWNED, the many comments against your poorly made videos and then came here to complain about your comments being deleted years ago for being full of lying and attempting to do the same thing you’ve done here.
“April 16th… this is 5 days before Irate Gamer put me in his review… you guys had a lengthy conversation about me two posts before this one on the blog. What prompted it? Literally, nothing. ”
AHEM “Also out of curiosity, is that “Reviewing the Reviewer” fellow still around?” – Kama Oh noes Eric got exposed
Reading and research Asalieri, its kind of essential. A user asked what happened to your show and another person replied that it had falling out due to a recent incident involving stalking and harassment of a ex-friend of yours by you. My post links to a documentation of that incident. So what do you mean unprompted? Take a look it has a full start and beginning. Unprompted would be making random insults that have no relevance to you. Oh and length? Its six comments long Actually counting the comments that are anti-Eric-Gaede, its only 3 comments long! One of them is “Wait, Asa did WHAT? When did THIS happen?”. I see you like lying Eric.
” You just felt like having another go at me out of nowhere, where as usual, you misrepresent the actual events to suit whatever weird fetish you have with bringing me down.”
Nice just imply its a fetish It’s okay Mr.Kill, Eric clearly has issues considering that he envisioned that Angry Joe was jerking off to cat porn. I can’t help but think of his RAR where his hand was stuck to his mouse. Yeah I really want brain bleach for that… that’ll help convince me to stop making fun of you. Do you like pretending that your haters masturbate to thei-r hate of you?
“For now, I dunno, maybe less attacks from you, less vitriol, considering i’ve toned down my own rhetoric a LOT since 2011 would be nice”
“Kill, the tone on my comment section is due to your continued insistence in badmouthing me”
AHEM You badmouthed me first and you made a video that totally took out of context my comment to a totally insane troll. Man its like I don’t even need to point out that Asalieri is a lying asshole. Mr.Kill please write my articles
“All I would want at this point is for you to give it a rest”
You give it a rest! You can even focus on the same topic for more than week. You are a slacktivist at heart and you refuse to tackle any topic in a reasonable manner. Oh great now he’s using words I like to use.
“You couldn’t possibly claim *I* am causing the fights now.”
How funny, you’re starting another one. You came here of your own accord and brought nothing to the table but thinly veiled insults and a cheap mockery of the idea of truce. There is over 5 insults cumulative so far from Asalieri. Way to play the victim Eric!
“do you agree with bringing people’s families into internet drama?”
You apparently do. You’ve talked about other people’s families before and repeatedly bring your family into internet arguments Eric also asked one father to go die in fire and then lied saying that he never asked for people to die in a fire. You give away your own address and repeatedly ask trolls to escalate their behavior towards you I was laughing hilariously at this. I don’t think Eric has had this bad a beatdown since being called out on the Deadhorse interchange forums. Your attempt to ask me to stop talking about you is so poorly worded that its as if you are insulting my relative lack of insulting you Protip- Never say that someone is really hostile towards you when they’ve barely done anything to you. Eric learns this the hard way. FYI, listing the documentation of an incident does not count as insulting someone. I’m also pretty sure that you have said things about other people’s kids that were not particularly savoury Assuming of course you weren’t jerking off to the mother and her kids, god I really wish that didn’t happen!.
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 2:41 PM
“I didn’t provoke you 9 days ago.”
Yup that’s why you never retracted your insults directed at me, everyone else here and this site I like to frequent Spoiler alert, Eric will still act as if he’s the victim. You certainly still don’t maintain or encourage the notion that we shouldn’t exist and that people should support your own opinion in making sure we don’t exist. OH wait you do. If you wanted to say you didn’t provoke me then maybe you should take down those videos that make fun of us. Hmm maybe a update video that says “these guys are okay” would be in order. Except that isn’t what has happened is it? Grievances only go away when they are dealt with. A Grievance doesn’t go away with time or in this case you picking someone else to harass for the next few weeks. Mr.Kill asks Eric several times to attempt to apologize, Eric seems to get the impression that Mr.Kill wants a bribe on the last attempt… facepalm
“last question for you Kill… Do you agree with ED’s style of balls to the wall harassment?”
ED had nothing to do with the ad Eric Unless you believe the picture of the naked guy holding a picture of the words “ED4life” a guy who is hated by ED no less. And what evidence do you have that they did? And as for the question, you didn’t answer mine. I only give what I am allowed to take Sorry Mr.Kill but Eric is morally bankrupt you shouldn’t have bothered to give anything because Eric will default even when he does have money to pay off the loan. If you can’t answer a simple question as “Is there a point to this other than a weak attempt to make a truce?” then I am not obligated to give the obvious answer to your question. “I don’t know” means this conversation is worthless you’re proving exactly why batdan banned you in the first place. I can tell you I don’t agree with your style of harassment either. Making videos that completely misrepresent an issue based on information you knew was false is terrible.
TL:DR PLZ stop lying Eric Hopefully Eric will listen to the abbreviated form of the word please… assuming he knows what PLZ means. Its not helping your case and pretending that you’re the full victim and you did nothing to provoke this is just wrong especially after you’ve claimed we are not allowed to exist. Especially after you claim we are censorship happy and still pretend that we are massive hate cult. Stop pretending that we are misrepresenting things when you are here totally out of touch with what’s going on and not even bothering to re-read what you are writing. Fetish? Really Eric? That statement throws your entire argument out the window. Oh and your changing the subject… AGAIN. You can’t claim you didn’t start the fight when you are here making accusations that are totally baseless and listing evidence that is counter to your own argument.
Last but not least “A little credit for being something other than the evil sociopath you paint me as would be nice. Perhaps the honesty I asked of you would be nice?”
If this is what you want then you’re going to have to tell me things you do well and show me evidence that will paint as you as a nice or good person. I have no evidence so to speak so to ask me to be honest and to give you credit is to ask me to tell others you are credibly evil and not likable. You might think is unreasonable but let’s face it… have you named any of good traits and made a video that shows what kind of a good person you are? You keep telling me that you don’t deserve to be harassed and that you are a good person. So why don’t you write a full post about all the good things you’ve done and I mean things that can’t be disputed. Because if someone asks me what I honestly think of you then I can only honestly reply in return based on your actions to me and your ability to not hide insults such as “my haters masturbate to their hate of me” which does not allow me to say you are a nice person and still feel honest.
Wow to recap. Mr.KIll just absolutely crushed any notion of Eric being innocent or otherwise plagued by a greater evil. In addition Mr.Kill has asked Eric to name nice things he’s done so the next time someone asks Mr.Kill about Asalieri, he can say nice things. Unforunately Eric has to send Mr.Kill an IOU.
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 3:09 PM
1. I am not starting a fight here. Jesus christ.
2. I never brought anyone’s family into any internet drama, this is plain false.
3. That guy clearly brought up Lasersquad’s blog, he mentioned him by name. He is talking about that blog, dude. Hence my answer, referring specifically to HIM.
4. I’ve made several videos that are completely neutral, like my world cup videos or more recently, a video about cultural differences in how we view gambling and how Europe does. It’s not like my channel is dedicated exclusively to talking about what I DONT like.
5. how do YOU know ED had nothing to do with the ad? Do you have proof to the contrary? Let’s go with what we can easily prove, then. They called my mom a whore. Appropriate? Come on now. And what was the point of digging up my little brother’s dox? Or my little girl’s teacher’s info? Do you seriously condone that? does that make them good people in your book?
there is a point to me talking to you as reasonably as I can muster, despite your belligerence. I am, against my better judgement still trying to understand you. I’m not even attacking you at the moment.
You say your personal grievance is that I made a video taking your posts out of context. Let’s work on that one, then. What harm has come to you as a result of “Megaassassin”? and what exactly did you find objectionable? I am sorry if it did cause you any problems or pain, for what it’s worth.
Hmmm my bullshit detector is going off let’s see what this translates to:
1. I’m not going to read your entire comment Mr.Kill. Instead I’m going to make religious insults because I have no ability to control my anger and prevent the writing of things that add nothing to a conversation and insult the good name of religious figures. Funny how history repeats since that’s what Eric did last time too.
2. I am lying. I like to lie. I love lying. I will say anything to pretend I have the moral highground here. Hell I’d happily punch children to prove how convicted I am to being a good person.
3. Eh I can say what ever the hell I want. IT was a youtube conversation and I’ll delete it by the end of the week while giving some cheap reply like “I don’t want to be involved anymore”
4. All the horrible things I’ve done were done a long time ago. Two days ago counts as long right? My lack of therapist says its does anyway.
5. I don’t know anything about law or the idea of “innocent unless proven guilty” I am happy to blame people over insufficient and contrary evidence because hey I’m lying to you right now. Why tell the truth when you can just lie. Its so easy, I could probably fart and that would be just as intelligible as this response.
Unfortunately my bullshit translator broke down apparently due to an overflow of bullshit. You see it was calibrated for Irate Gamer levels of bullshit but Asalieri levels of bullshit was just too overwhelming. But I digress what’s next in this heap of bullshit Eric calls a comment.
“there is a point to me talking to you as reasonably as I can muster”
Just keep lying Eric. You just said you didn’t know. That was why Mr.Kill said you were wasting his time.
“despite your belligerence.”
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA Oh man that one was rich. You just said that Mr.Kill is sexually attracted to hating you. This is just lying for the sake of lying.
“I am, against my better judgement still trying to understand you”
Well the first part would involve speaking english and attempting to use real world logic. It’s tough but it involves actually understanding things and not imagining a naked lady over the content you are attempting to analyze (see Eric I gave you the benefit of the doubt by not immediately assuming you would imagine naked children or a mother and her kids in place of the naked lady).
“You say your personal grievance is that I made a video taking your posts out of context. Let’s work on that one, then. What harm has come to you as a result of “Megaassassin”? and what exactly did you find objectionable?”
Wow Eric you seriously don’t know what will happen with your bullshit fanbase and how you encourage people to treat other people as scum? Oh and I’d like to note that Mr.Kill did not know about Megaassassin and this is going to end terrible for Eric. For those who don’t know Megaassassin is essentially Mr.Kill… yeah its like pissed Jose, it’s not clever and it’s just an excuse to harass the person it’s based on. Oh man I can’t wait to see what Eric says next because he’s already fucked up royally.
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 3:19 PM
I will concede your right to post whatever you like about Bores, hell, this is your blog, do what you like. But I can’t in all honesty endorse it, if I did, i’d have to publicly say i’m cool with him being harassed, his mother insulted, his friends and people he’s known cross examined for the purpose of denigrating him on a public forum. Hell, i’d have to say I agree with my OWN mother being insulted, if it came down to it. You appear to have no qualms with what ED posts about folks, regardless of how skewed or slanderous it is, or even ethical, for that matter. I can’t endorse that kind of behavior.
That doesn’t mean I can’t personally try to reason with you. If I didn’t think I could reason with you, I wouldn’t bother.
“I will concede your right to post whatever you like about Bores, hell, this is your blog, do what you like. But I can’t in all honesty endorse it”
Ah yes the other bullet in the foot. Eric came to the blog and clearly said the only reason he was there was because he himself was insulted. Now he’s changing his excuse to “BUT WHAT ABOUT IRATE GAMER” except its still asking about him because Eric does not specify that Irate Gamer can’t take the abuse no he says “But I can’t in all honesty endorse it” so its not and never has been about protect his friend but more about himself because if Irate Gamer gets insulted Eric gets insulted. Ladies and gentlemen Eric has managed to contradict himself 3 times in one gramatically incorrect sentence.
1. He says its okay for Mr.Kill to write what he wants but then double’s back immediately… you can edit these before you post them Eric!
2. Forgot that he came here because he himself was insulted and said so himself.
3. Then says that he’s doing it on the Irate Gamer’s behalf when he only cares about himself. He makes this very clear in the next few comments.
Oh and good job insinuating that your mother aka your family is less important than that friend we all know you’ll ditch. Well here comes the next stupid comment from Eric
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 3:23 PM
maybe i’m just too foolish for my own good? Kill Ultra, I apologize for making you feel bad with my parody of you. My intention was to make fun of something I saw are silly, not to humiliate you. I hope you can accept that somehow.
Oh hey look Mr.Kill. Eric doesn’t find anything wrong with what he did and what’s more wants you to accept his views! That’s not an asshole move right? Man that was as great as the serial killer who said “Hey look guys I didn’t mean to kill you and I apologize for stabbing many of you 32 times. My only intention was to extract blood I thought I silly putty, not to kill you. I hope that you can accept that.”
Good attempt to feel sorry there Eric, I was totally convinced you were a sociopath with no empathy. Man you’re good at being a sociopath.
And now for Mr.KIll to say just about everything I already said
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 6:30 PM
“I am not starting a fight here. Jesus christ.”
Yes escalate the rethoric by calling the name of a diety. I mean its typed speech and therefore you can control your emotions and prevent saying unnecessary swear words that would offend people who may or may not be highly religious? Surely this will be followed by a calm and not faked explanation about how you want to make amends?
“2. I never brought anyone’s family into any internet drama, this is plain false.”
Nope I guess not. So Eric, if you’ve never involved anyone’s family into internet drama why have you done a video on other people’s kids and chosen to focus on making fun of children in other videos? Oh how about this nice comment about Batdan’s love interests?
“but yeah, I can’t imagine anyone wanting to go to bed with him unless they are completely in the dark about his secret obsession with Bores”
Let’s face it Asalieri you’re allergic to the very insults you make daily.
“3. That guy clearly brought up Lasersquad’s blog, he mentioned him by name. He is talking about that blog, dude. Hence my answer, referring specifically to HIM.”
Except your the one who wrote the first comment in that thread and it explicitedly talks about THIS blog. “Every comment I ever made on your blog, attack wise OR neutral has been deleted by Batty. And I know I am not the only one who has had comments censored.” Then you said this “They aren’t THERE anymore. I remember the conversation I attempted on that blog too, where Lasersquad had the gall to alter what I was writing. How’s that for honesty?”. So either you’re saying that Lasersquad deleted your comments which is ridiculous because they’re still they and they still stink or you’re referring to batdan deleting your comments because you’d just waste everybody’s time.
“4. I’ve made several videos that are completely neutral, like my world cup videos or more recently, a video about cultural differences in how we view gambling and how Europe does. It’s not like my channel is dedicated exclusively to talking about what I DONT like.”
That’s my point. You can’t come clean without making amends. You don’t get it do you? A crime is still a crime and you never apologized you never said you were wrong and you never made amends to anyone in a worthwhile fashion. Everytime you make amends its because the other person doesn’t want to put up with you anymore, because they were intimidated by you. They don’t actually like you. Hell you so easily made up with Ben Wagner even though he’s just going to backstab you like everyone else he’s been “friends” with and this was the guy leaking photos of your wife. You don’t make amends, you don’t make hypocritical pacts.
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 6:32 PM
“5. how do YOU know ED had nothing to do with the ad? Do you have proof to the contrary? Let’s go with what we can easily prove, then. They called my mom a whore. Appropriate? Come on now. And what was the point of digging up my little brother’s dox? Or my little girl’s teacher’s info? Do you seriously condone that? does that make them good people in your book?”
Easy, the legal definition of guilty is proven beyond all reasonable doubt. The only evidence you had that it was ED was some guy who was hated by ED holding a paper that said “ED 4 life”. In addition if it was ED that hates you so much then how come you haven’t gotten repeat incidents? ED is full of satirical people who don’t do anything that’s why. Maybe if 4chan or anonymous who actually have resources were against you, then you’d actually have a point. ED isn’t capable of doing anything to anyone and until you have reasonable evidence that anyone did anything YOU CAN’T pin the tail on the donkey. Anyone who hates you could have done that. Even me, or hell even Ben Wagner the guy who hated you enough to circulate photos of your wife. I’d like to remind you that Ben Wagner’s hobby is trying to get admin status on fansubbing forums to go ban everyone and kill the subbing group. He more than anyone has the dedication to do it. Don’t believe take at look at your oh so dreaded forum thread on you. Its dead! It hasn’t had an update for a while now. They weren’t and never were dedicated to harassing you anymore than just writing random crap on their wiki.
“there is a point to me talking to you as reasonably as I can muster, despite your belligerence.”
Yes listing your problems and inability to talk to people in a logical fashion counts as belligerence. Saying someone has a fetish is apparently A-Okay in your book.
“You say your personal grievance is that I made a video taking your posts out of context. Let’s work on that one, then. What harm has come to you as a result of “Megaassassin”?”
Hmmm where to start? Okay we got a large amount of trolls repeating your arguments trying to pick fights with people and they were so problematic that batdan actually shut down the comments section until they got bored. We also have quite a few people who think its okay to just pretend that its perfectly fine to say we don’t deserve to exist. And your influence has allowed people to think its okay to troll again for Irate Gamer. In addition “Megaassassin” isn’t even a codeword or a clever name; its obviously a allegory for me (Derp get it? Mega = Ultra and kill means assassin) and you link just my comments in the same video. YOU DIDN’T EVEN TRY TO HIDE OR OTHERWISE PREVENT SLANDER. Nice work Asalieri, you’ve managed to make me even more aware of how much of a jackass you were being when you made that video. You literally tried to make me synonymous with fanboyism. And yet you still act as if you haven’t done anything majorly wrong.
“I am sorry if it did cause you any problems or pain, for what it’s worth.”
Are you sorry? Are you really REALLY sorry? Because I don’t think you understand what sorry means.
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 6:33 PM
“I will concede your right to post whatever you like about Bores, hell, this is your blog, do what you like. ”
Oh yeah you definitely deemed it was okay to post things about Bores… IT was just that existing was the problem you had with us. Hmmm? What about comments like this “Not an ounce of honesty, good will, honor, truth or giving a shit about any of the above exists in that basement hole they call a blog.”.
OR this one? “Expect them to come, leave hateful comments, and then lie about me somehow deleting them even though they’re clearly there to read.”
Oh but its okay for ME to post but what about batdan’s work? Or Kiki or anyone else?
“Nah, the blog gives his life meaning, he’d never off himself and deprive himself of his 20 readers.”
Don’t give me this bullshit okay? That was utter bullshit and you get a middle eastern thumbs up for it.
“But I can’t in all honesty endorse it, if I did, i’d have to publicly say i’m cool with him being harassed, his mother insulted”
Chris Bores runs the ladybuggin777 account or is that not obvious to you? Chris has made his own mother a target of insults. Chris has been running his own sockpuppet accounts and happily trolling and harassing people. You even helped him do it. Now even Archfiend is helping him assault AVGN, a guy who has never insulted him back. Do you have a bullshit factory?
” his friends and people he’s known cross examined for the purpose of denigrating him on a public forum.”
We never have insulted his friends and relatives on the grounds they were related to him. We have made fun of his friends if they were caught engaged in trolling however.
“Hell, i’d have to say I agree with my OWN mother being insulted, if it came down to it.”
So some guy you’ve abused and only hypocritically and a surface deep level made amends with is more important than your family. Its hilarious how you contradict your own stated values of caring about your loved ones and family. Hold on, do you also run the bullshit transportation service?
“You appear to have no qualms with what ED posts about folks, regardless of how skewed or slanderous it is, or even ethical, for that matter.”
It’s a satrical and lawful site. You can’t touch them because its a legally allowed website. Heck the fact that lasersquad’s blog is still up is a sign that he didn’t lie about you. He’s running wordpress, those sites are easily taken out by legal action but you haven’t succeeded have you? Eric… you can lie all you want but the law is the law, and I will stand by law and order at all times against your bullshit company of lying. All you care about is getting money and trying to monetize your own material. You showed that during your copyright rant. Don’t give me this bullshit about ethics when you don’t have it yourself.
“That doesn’t mean I can’t personally try to reason with you. If I didn’t think I could reason with you, I wouldn’t bother. ”
Well you think you could fly… I’m surprised you haven’t tried that yet.
“maybe i’m just too foolish for my own good?”
Maybe if you used a dictionary and took more time and thought before hitting that publish button.
Mr.Kill UltraApril 24, 2014 at 6:34 PM
“Kill Ultra, I apologize for making you feel bad with my parody of you. My intention was to make fun of something I saw are silly, not to humiliate you. I hope you can accept that somehow.”
Nope not accepted. Its not funny nor could I ever understand how you would think its funny to completely misrepresent an individual. Then come over and say he is a lying idiot with a fetish and then expect him to understand. Perhaps if you came up with more clever name like Mr.fanboy or something other than a cheap low punch to the nuts of the guy you’re trying to apologize to. OR hell you know you could also do actions that show you’re sorry. You know those things? Like when Germany wanted to say it sorry it gave money to France for all the crap it went through? You know like an official apology? Other than coming to the guys place of frequent visits, conjecturing that everyone there is a stupid, censorship happy, ignorant loser from afar and then trying to say you’re sorry? Stop me if you know how to apologize properly.
Asalieri would once again shoot himself in the foot by posting Mr.Kills comment and then pretending he’s crazy. Man its like sociopath’s have trouble being good people or something…
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 7:08 PM
clearly, you’re not going to accept my apology and would rather continue in enmity with me (know that it’ll be all on your side, however.). Well, at least I had the gumption and the honor to try and make things right, even on your terms. I am not about to pay you money, if that’s what you’re alluding to.
I humbly and respectfully take my leave. I don’t see you as a loser. I see you as a guy with a chip on his shoulder who loves to argue for the sake of arguing rather than to make a difference. You win, I guess. Whatever ‘winning’ in this case means. Take care.
“clearly, you’re not going to accept my apology” OH REALLY? He said “NOPE NOT ACCEPTED”. Holy crap Eric you might be onto something. I think you’ve proven the correlation between being an insincere asshole and not having your insincere piece of crap apology accepted. Scientists were stumped on the link between those two factors. I’d write more but Mr.Kill says it all.
“Well, at least I had the gumption and the honor to try and make things right, even on your terms”
I asked for an official apology video. Instead you are content with giving me nothing as I suspected you would anyway. But with your leaving I guess one thing is quite true, you’re not very good unless you have all your friends coming in and bombarding the other guy with their more superior intellect. And hopefully you’ve learned that acting as if you are superior to other person and giving them an apology expecting gratitude doesn’t exactly work.
“I humbly and respectfully take my leave”
This just in on Asalieri2’s channel
“Alright so yeah. I’m an idiot for actually thinking the guy could be reasoned with. He’s just way too happy being belligerent and too into his hatred of me to see otherwise. How sad, really.”
Ah dude you didn’t even ATTEMPT to reason with me. You need reason to reason with someone. You came in here blind, felt for the light switch, hit the fire alarm and thought it made the place more pleasant. Humble and respectful leave… Your actions speak louder then your words and lack of dictionary. Using the word gumption to describe your approach which was full of thinly veiled insults is hilarious. Shrewd and classy Asalieri, can’t wait to see if you want to continue to try and spin this situation where you clearly fucked up and still trying to say you never did. I was saving these two words for the end even though I already had sufficient cause to say these are the beginning. Fuck you.
Eric you make a mockery of the freedoms of the internet much like how your father made a mockery of freedom in reality. You’re so twisted you probably though the aforementioned was a compliment. Please leave Asalieri, you’re attempt to make an apology was hilariously weak and full of fail. Seriously? Posting negative things about the person you’re trying to apologize to on a public channel he can view at any time? Glad you’re not a diplomat!
Good job Eric you made the victim even more well aware of the crap you did to them and how involved you were in the trolling of that blog. OH and the victim told you to go fuck yourself. In fact I think you deserve another fuck you from me for being so insincere and smug during what should have been an attempt to apologize. Actions speak louder than words Eric and saying you’re sorry doesn’t mean anything when you take every opportunity to make fun of the person you’re trying to apologize to and make no attempt to understand or empathize. Eric says he’s aware of the middle ground yet here he is still targeting the Irate Gamer sucks blog even though the only reason they hate him is because he started the mess to begin with by saying they’re all fanboys! Eric flat out lies more times than I am willing to count to a person who knows that he’s lying. A sane person would only allow themselves to be caught lying once, yet here Eric is so delusional to think it was honorable to try and make things right by making the victim do the work. When Mr.Kill asked you to use a dictionary Eric he meant for you to stop being careless with your language and being insulting by doing so not to look up the words “gumption”, “honor, “respectfully” and “humbly” and use them when they don’t apply to try and make yourself look smart.
Now for the shocking moment. Eric makes a promise that he clearly seems to have broken:
AsalieriApril 24, 2014 at 10:40 PM
I’ll make that video apology for ya. Here’s hoping you’re able to accept it, seeing as it is what you demanded from me, after all. I fully expect you to take it out of context, feel insulted by it, feel the need to further insult ME for making it, and then write a 50 page essay on why I suck for having made it. Cheers.
Its been over a week and Asalieri is still insulting the blog on his youtube channel while pretending he’s the victim. Surely the apology video was just a way of saying that everything Mr.Kill said about Eric was right. I mean why make a video when you can have the real deal. Eric Gaede, egotist extraordinaire, picking fights for petty reasons and insulting people while pretending not to notice the insults he himself writes. Of course that’s not all because Asaslieri decided to keep lying but its boring and I’ll spare you the details.
Really gotta work on that lying problem Eric. I’m fairly sure that the people who wish to talk to Eric will never go to the PM system because they know you like to delete things and lie. The reason why people go to the comment box and video comment system is because that gives them an audience and that gives the ability to have evidence and witnesses to Eric lying and censoring everything. There so many countless examples of Eric doing this that its totally irresponsible to be claiming that the Irate Gamer sucks blog is full of delusional people and censorship when that describes his entire career. But perhaps it was wrong to give Eric any credit because he always seems to use it incorrectly. Today we’ve seen how Eric “buries the hatchet” and considering that quite a few people have apparently accepted this should we be concerned?Well the answer is no.
You see when Eric feuds with someone, that someone is generally a professional who must focus on his material and not the asshole running a petty organized grudge against you. It is no surprise that content creators happily accept the apology even though its very insincere because it means they’ve got one less fat asshole causing a ruckus and driving potential fans away. Eric’s RAR’s and his “parody” videos always precede a massive troll attack on the people featured in it. Generally the trolls are very dumb, very few even spend more than a day after or before the video because its slacktivism at its finest but the damage is still there and depending on how popular the target was the damage could take some time to fix (I.E There are still idiots who think TGWTG is going to die or Angry Joe is apparently just in it for the money). I could write entire articles about the damage Eric’s videos have done and I already have written several.
The fact that Asalieri has gotten other people he’s trolled to accept his apology is not a good thing. It is a sign that Asalieri is too much trouble to actually deal with. A reason why Eric has gotten away with so much abuse and non-stop hypocrisy over the many years he’s been doing this. But of course this doesn’t work on people who know better. Mr.Kill isn’t a content creator and he can happily tell Asalieri to go fuck himself because the enjoyment of the Irate Gamer sucks blog has nothing to do with whether a fat manblob is harassing its users. We’ve seen something we would never see five years ago when Asalieri was still lying through his teeth; people are finally beginning to tell Eric where he should shove it. It looks like all the years of lying and hypocrisy has caught up with Eric its just a shame that he refuses to learn anything even as things get worse for him.
Update: It appears that Eric is once again executing the final part of the slacktivist plan (part 5: Run away and call people haters for saying the truth). This is after he has deleted the entire dicussion he had with Gloin. At least to his credit, Asalieri removed the insults towards batdan unfortunately given that Asalieri started the fight, its still up to him to settle the matter by admitting what he did was wrong and apologizing. This isn’t settling the situation; its running from it and pretending it never happened. Mr.Kill is still waiting for that apology and if you don’t give him it don’t be surprised Eric if he makes fun of you again or you know, tell people the truth about you (and he did ask you to provide him with information as to your good deeds but you sent him an IOU). In fact you could say the situation had no changes… hmmm maybe it was because you came to group of people you insulted, continued to be smug and insulting to them, acted like you did nothing wrong and admitted you had no plan or course of action?Eric Gaede = Master of diplomacy and thinking things through.
3 days ago
Take your arguments elsewhere, folks. I am no longer interested in your idiotic forced feud.
Eric maybe you should just apologize? I mean you never resolved any of the situations you started. No one is going to let someone just leave, they have to settle the issue. Heck you wanted an apology from the Irate Gamer Sucks blog and that’s why you came there to insult them and act all smug. You started it and you continue to start it and you’ve never attempted to deescalate the situation. The entire reason why the Irate Gamer sucks blog was mad at you Eric was because you insulted sometime last January and you continued to do so since then. Its not out-dated or out of the question for people to rise up and ask you just exactly what the hell you were trying to do with statements that the people on the Irate Gamer sucks blog had hate fetishes.
Don’t act like the kyle incident is old or resolved. Kyle has not made any official statement that he is done and you Eric have not made a single statement that suggests you will never attempt to stalk again or that you aren’t the controlling manipulative jackass you were exposed as when you tried to do that. People are not haters because they decided to question or grill you about your actions on that day. They want you to stop and you have made no signs of stopping or otherwise getting your shit together. Instead you run, pretend it never happened and give people unsatisfactory answers that had this been made a criminal case, you were be found guilty in an instant. Do you want to know why Angry Joe isn’t getting flak for his issues even though you’ve made every opportunity to make fun of them and capitalize on his problems? Because unlike you Eric Gaede, Angry Joe takes responsibility and clarifies and makes full statements on the issue. How many videos have you made Eric where you clarified what happened during the many fiascoes you’ve had during your campaigns? I count none. But let’s face it, you can’t, you’re all about insulting people for the sake of insulting and its made clear by the kinds of insults you spew and how dedicated you are to focusing on yourself and how it is supposedly better than the other person. Heck you wouldn’t make one anyway because lying is so ingrained to you that you couldn’t make a decent alibi without filling it with holes that shouldn’t have been there. But hey enough about you because apparently that’s all you really think about anyway. Let’s take a look at what one of his fans had to say (P.S I will only target fans if they go way too far in their efforts to support the show they like, its one thing to like something its another thing to harass and lie for something).
2 days ago
+Marco Rossi He’s been dealing with this for years now. I’m surprised he’s lasted this long. You guys keep coming here and starting shit, even when the general discussion is no longer about people or events that make you mad. (Example: Kyle.)
Asa has to disable ratings on his videos now because there are about 50+ accounts (possibly lead by much fewer people) that follow him just so they can dislike his videos and make him look bad. What kind of person just follows a guy they hate for the sole purpose of making his life miserable?
There is no doubt in my mind that if you wanted to have a civil debate with Asa, and leave the insults out, you would actually find him easy to get along with and you would hate him far less.
Present your points with valid observations and listen to the other side of the argument, and you might get somewhere. Constantly harassing the guy with condescending comments won’t get anybody anywhere, and it just fuels this pointless feud that a lot of us have grown tired of.
Don’t worry Yo Sniper I’m not asalieri so I’m not going to make a paper thin parody of you that totally exagerates what you said in an attempt to make Asalieri fans look crazy. Some of them are but most of them are not, a brief look at the ratings bar (which has been disabled, classic Eric) would prove that. Heck the very negative comments that would be there if they weren’t deleted would also prove that the average viewer of Asalieri’s work is getting smarter (and its definitely not a result of the flynn effect).
Yo sniper, if you’ve read this article you’d know what wrong with this comment and the reason why I’m writing this last section is because its this line of thought that allows Eric to continue to live in this pretend world that is clearly destroying his life. Eric does not think things through he rarely thinks far into the future if he even bothers to think at all. Many complaints he makes about works are nonsensical and he’s chosen to ally himself with other people who don’t exactly have positive reputations. Any ONE of these things would be sufficient cause for Eric to get the amount of animosity that Irate Gamer and other hated youtube individuals get and yet it has only spiraled out of control recently. Eric Gaede is lucky that his reckless antics and irresponsible ethics have only cause this much trouble for him and yet look at his mentality; Eric gave trolls his address and his response was to show his address in a public video (crappy black box work that wasn’t even competent does not count as hiding his address, its is clearly visible for a full second in the “a spiteful prank” video) and complain about how his life is so bad and terrible while doing nothing to encourage people to not do the same thing to him again. Back at the kyle incident that yo sniper says is resolved, What was Eric’s mentality? Say that Kyle was trying to leach subscribers off him and then lie and then take down every Kyle related video while at best saying that Kyle didn’t want to be associated with him anymore. Kyle was absolutely disgusted with Eric and Eric’s attempt to get Kyle back involved stalking and intimidation. Eric has created this mindset where he is unable to notice any of the consequences of his actions and continues to do actions that will definitely cause him more problems down the line. Eric must be able to cope with criticism on his own attempting to convince that the recent wave of dislikes on his videos are from elitists (that’s what you’re implying yo sniper with the 50+ accounts with less than that number of actual people) is just telling Eric that’s its okay for him to abandon what little sensibilities he has. That its okay for him to pick popular target and yell non-sense complaints that few if any will understand. That the next video should have more clips of cats and animals being killed because all the people who hated that don’t exist. Its amazing how quickly material declines and how much creativity dies when people become convinced they are immune to criticism and that their work is just for their sake.
In addition encouraging censorship is what gives more fuels to his detractors. Eric has just deleted every comment he made including the comments involving his statements against this blog, batdan and everyone else he hates. Now people are legitimately interested in what got Eric so hissy that he deleted everything in a crude effort to hide it. This is the Streisand effect. If the people who really like Asalieri’s work want to enjoy his work in peace they should encourage him to put more effort into his work and to address criticism by actually improving himself. They should be encouraging him to spend more time looking like a real person and less time being an egotistical jerk on camera. Yet here we are, Eric has enacted censorship once again, a very vocal fan decides to back up his decision to block a conversation even though said conversation was about questioning and criticizing Eric’s morality and Eric seems convinced that its okay to pretend things don’t exist because apparently it won’t haunt it all the while ignoring the fact he promised someone an apology video, never gave and their terms was that he would apologize and the other guy would stop being hostile towards him. Current sitation = Eric has +1 or more justified enemies, minus god knows how many rational fans and Eric is still being delusional and refusing to accept his role in this mess. And here I was thinking irresponsible creators make irresponsible fanbases…
Haters… well if any minority group on the internet that no one really likes its haters. The problem of course is that language is an ever evolving term and certain words have become selective while the people using them haven’t bothered to recheck the dictionary if it means what they think it means. In addition since it is internet slang, modern dictionaries and english language professors haven’t exactly caught up with its use today. For example the oxford dictionary just describes hater as “a person who greatly dislikes a specified person or thing”… yeah that’s not particularly helpful, I mean you wouldn’t call the people who are angry that they’ve lost their homes, love ones and their own freedom to an abusive and totalitarian government ‘haters’ would you? Sure they might really ‘hate’ the government but ‘hater’ is a derogatory term generally meaning the hate is misplaced and petty. While I frown on the fact that only wikipedia seems to get this right but it seems that since wikipedia can be edited by anyone, they’re the first to tackle internet slang with negative connotations.
“Haters behave as such not out of jealousy, but out of the need to reduce the target of hatred’s standing….A Hater is not simply someone who offers criticism. It is sometimes used as an accusation against others with different opinions, even against those who offer constructive criticism. Furthermore, mere negativity does not make a Hater- it is negativity without a justifiable basis.” – wikipedia
Sure that’s all fine and dandy but lets see what another group produced definition source has to say
“A person that simply cannot be happy for another person’s success. So rather than be happy they make a point of exposing a flaw in that person.
Hating, the result of being a hater, is not exactly jealousy. The hater doesnt really want to be the person he or she hates, rather the hater wants to knock somelse down a notch.” – Urban Dictionary
So essentially the internet can agree on 3 things when someone is hater:
1. They’re irrational
2. They do not give constructive critcism and complaints are petty.
3. They’re unhelpful to the community
Huh? does that make me a hater? After all Eric Gaede aka Asalieri has called me and the whole lot of people who hate his irresponsible antics as ‘haters’, but I get this suspicious feeling given the cosmic irony that constantly stings Eric in the ass that he isn’t using the word right. The first thing you should do before labeling someone else as a hater is to take a step back and make sure you’re not the hater (that would just be an embarrassing case of the twilight zone).
1. I give Eric a chance many many times in his videos often times pointing out what he could have done that would have saved time and made the message more clear. Though I often wonder if giving Eric the benefit of the doubt can be considered ‘rational’
2. Constructive criticism is the name of the game when I write these articles and I have written an article about double checking your sources and I always provide evidence with every complaint and suggestion
3. Alot of people actually agree with me. This blog has roughly 1k-700 views a day on average (this includes the days where I don’t do jack shit so that’s pretty good). The fact that only Eric seems to have problem with this blog and our lack of trolling (knocks on wood) indicates that people really aren’t offended by what I write and say.
Well that clearly makes 3 for 3 not a hater though this hasn’t stopped Eric from calling me a hater. Lord knows what definition Asalieri has for hater. But what about Eric aka Asalieri? The guy known for: asking critics to talk to him in PM even though he just bans people for doing that, constantly stating that the dislike bar is filled by one guy with multiple accounts (because apparently filling the dislike bar by spending hours signing into your multiple accounts is something people would do for every one of his videos), can’t make a legit criticism of the industry or other reviewers full of flaws like the Irate Gamer, says he doesn’t do death threats when being caught numerous times making death threats and generally behaves like a immature manchild with a severe ego disorder (And I’d like to note we have evidence for each and every one of these incidents)?
So is Eric a Hater?
1. Eric is definitely irrational. His complaints in the Ranting Robots RAR had him confusing the terms angry reviewing and video game reviewing as the same thing and the theme of that episode was that there wasn’t any innovation only for him to complain about innovation. During the RAR, Eric stated that he was tired of hearing about Superman 64 being a terrible game and seems to act as if he wants people to say its a good game. To make things more confusing, in a weak and not funny voice over of a robot, Eric can be heard saying “mario bros is a terrible game”. In other irrational antics, Eric’s response to someone pranking him by putting his address on a Craigslist ad was to make full of video of the prank succeeding and then giving a 5 minute rant about how his haters all suck somehow convinced that this would ensure that the prank wouldn’t happen again even though the best option would be to not film anything and thus trick people into thinking it didn’t work. This eventually backfired on Eric when I and many others suggested he faked the incident resulting in Eric refusing to talk about the issue and deleting the video. There many more incidents we could talk about but I think this has gone on for far too long.
2. Eric rarely if ever gives advice that would be considered helpful. When Angry Joe was giving his rant on youtube’s broken DMCA system, Eric stated that Angry Joe could get past the copyright system by wearing copyrighted costumes and making a show out of the copyrighted costumes. In the Irate Gamer RAR, Eric did make any criticisms about Chris Bore’s poor writing and acting instead making more jokes about Chris Bore’s body odor and weight then actual attempts to critique the irate gamer show (that’s pretty sad when you can’t critique the irate gamer show). In the ranting robots review, Eric suggested that the reviewers hire dancers and have an expensive over-glorified sock puppet speak their lines. Essentially Eric was asking the ranting robots to do something that has nothing to do with a review show in order to satisfy his complaints. In the one view wonder episode that was covered in this blog, Eric did not provide any advice or suggestions for improvement and spent the entire episode making weak jokes half of which didn’t make sense. There are many reasons why people don’t trust Eric Gaede, him being insincere, petty and unhelpful is one of them.
3. Eric is definitely not helpful to the community, often times being responsible for unwarranted mass panic then actually being a source of helpful critique or advice. When Eric received information regarding a possible mishandling of personnel at That Guy With The Glasses, Eric chose to present the information in the most inflammatory manner possible and when asked where he got such data and whether it was presented properly Eric told people to focus on the data and not on his ethics. It turned out that cruxification incident was false and Eric has simply misrepresented the issue completely and entirely and the matter was resolved in a week. Likewise when youtube decided to increase its reinforcement of copyright resulting in Angry Joe complaining about it, Eric decided to completely misrepresent what Angry Joe was saying only to a week later unintentionally admit that what Angry Joe said was correct by saying youtube copyright is bullshit and that its not fair to lose things you already have. In addition Eric completely confused the issues that Angry Joe was having with Eric’s own issues with youtube law (Eric repeatedly acted as if Angry Joe had lost an account, Angry Joe did not) while not even bothering to make sure the new youtube law acted anywhere near what Eric thought it did. When Reviewtopia decided to turn down his application due to his show being highly inflammatory and irresponsible, Eric told everyone that the website was worthless and invited the owner to a ‘nice’ discussion on skype which consisted of Eric and 3 of his crony friends throwing insult after insult towards the owners of reviewtopia without letting them explain why. The owners of reviewtopia admit it was a mistake attempting to talk to Asalieri like a sane person. On a more recent note, his new sports video constantly have their ratings disabled and comments moderated because Eric refuses to believe that people don’t want to watch pointless and error filled discussions of sports. Eric never has the interests of the community or his fans in mind as he continues to rant against whatever he seems to be in the mood for. Kudos for Eric for having a free spirit, its a shame that’s far outweighed by how much of a sociopath he is.
Adding to this are his RAR series, which consistently don’t provide criticism. Take a look at his RAR episode where he literally just dubbed over a guy to make hims sound mexician and the rest of episode was about pretending he had traits he did not. This included making up fantasy stories about his sex life and pretending as if he has no job. I especially love that Eric really liked making “you have no wife” jokes while at the same time complaining whenever people target his wife and make fun of him for being a loser. I wonder if Eric realizes that accepting delusional realities about other people is really shallow and pathetic.
Behold, the video where Eric just decided accepting delusional fantasy about someone is A-OKAY and definitely not a sign you are an egotistical loser with mental issues. Notice how many times Eric uses the photoshopped picture of the guy staring at a naked lady. That was his attempt at humor.
All I have to say about this episode is: YOU CAN’T CALL YOUR CRITICS DELUSIONAL WHEN YOU BELIEVE THE FANTASIES YOU MADE UP ARE REAL ERIC!!!!!!
*this is where I’d begin the video review* Unfortunately the internet is out and I can’t watch videos using a public terminal (without being offensive or otherwise annoying to the people around me).
Edit: after a 2 weeks hiatus, we’re back! Though I’m not very happy about the content I’m about to watch.
Okay so let’s take a look at the description:
I aint sayin’ he’s a liar… but he ain’t lookin’ for no truth, truth.
So a few minutes ago, one of my most fervent and unrelenting haters decided to attempt to discredit me… YET AGAIN, but unlike all other times, this time I came prepared for this little eventuality. I KNEW he was going to jump on that the very second Ranting Robots decided to delete their video, and lo and behold, I finally get the chance to sock it right back to this big mouthed lying scumbag.
So, Nytroxious has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt to be nothing but a lying troll, who thought he would continue to abuse me from here to eternity. No more credit for you, Nytro. Go find someone else to bug, I am going to be keeping all my sources and documenting everything, because I KNOW you’re desperately trying to discredit me in some weird attempt to get me to stop doing my show.
You can bet your bottom dollar he’ll fill this video with dislikes, and to be honest, that’s just par for the course for his stupid ass.

Wow we haven’t even started and there’s a fail in the first sentence. ‘Truth, truth’ well if Eric wants to pretend that there’s no innovation on the internet or that his personal fantasies about other people’s sex lives are funny then clearly Eric is okay with making up terms. I’d like to note this isn’t the kind of mistake you can make while typing a keyboard… or while you live in a world known as reality. It’s like he wanted to write a complex sentence but then stopped and realized… “no that would take effort”. Then he said to himself “Why the fuck should I bother to do actual work when I can just call people haters?” and then proceeded to put a period. This is not a good start. First off you can’t just begin with an inflammatory premise and then proceed to do a half-assed job. If you want to expose a hater you have to put effort, and fucking up your first sentence does not give signs of effort or talent. Eric, many people know you don’t do the research and that you are content with running into an issue, claiming to be an expert; while not demonstrating a basic degree of understanding of the subject material. The only people this is going to convince are the dumb fans who put as much effort into things as you do… that is to say the yes men who can’t do jack shit.
Other things I’d like to point out about the description:
“who thought he would continue to abuse me from here to eternity”
Uh Eric there’s something known as banned and ignore. All trolls are screwed if you use those tools effectively. Of course you don’t since you refuse to ban the people who do screw you over with false reports while banning the people who are telling you the truth; that your work is terrible and you seriously need to improve if you wish to remain at any degree relevant on youtube.
“No more credit for you, Nytro.”
You’re the only one keeping score Eric… that says a lot about what you think about “trolling”.
“You can bet your bottom dollar he’ll fill this video with dislikes”
And it has no more dislikes than any other video… FAIL. Why no Eric its not a good idea to blame everything on whoever seems to hate you at the time. Just going to leave this page here from TV tropes. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/NeverMyFault
Oh and Eric you really shouldn’t be encouraging other people to bet their bottom dollar. The bottom dollar is a person’s bottom line… aka the last bit of money they have and require to live without going destitute. But then again considering the fact that Eric claims to be poor, lives in a large house, claims to have job when he clearly doesn’t (his release schedule says a lot about how much free time he has and considering that he films everything why hasn’t brought a webcam to work?), and is happy with accepting large donations (like a laptop) and constant trips to casinos; its not really surprising that Eric doesn’t care about the poor and is happy to see other people suffer for following his terrible advice.
“and to be honest, that’s just par for the course for his stupid ass.”
Really now? Let’s see what nytroxious has done recently…. NOTHING… LITERALLY NOTHING. There are a few videos but those are years old. The discussion section has nothing particularly recent with one person asking nytroxious to just report Eric for cyber-bullying which he is clearly eligible for. So apparently Eric says that nytroxious is hyperactive, very stupid and hates him. Considering that Eric just abused the fuck out of nytroxious I can safely say nytroxious hates Eric. But I don’t see any real activity or any real malicious activity against Eric. And this brings me to another one of Erics faults… the “EVERYONE IS MY ARCH ENEMY” trait. Yeah… Eric seems to be convinced that everyone who’s made fun of him is organized and are long-term rivals. Eric has even stated that I hate him more than the devil… which is hilarious because he has no idea who I am, so such claims are ridiculous. Other people who just started campaigns against him for like a month were also labeled as long-time haters and I find it really sickening that Eric is trying to make his conflicts as long-term as possible. Does he think it’ll tire out his detractor something? Because you can’t exactly stop people from having good taste and a liking for decency.
Well that’s enough about the description let’s talk about the video now shall we? Oh boy I’m going to turn the volume down because I know Eric hasn’t given a shit about audio quality.
0:02 “HELLO DEAR VIEWER” Guys I have to set my computer speakers to fucking 6% volume in order to hear Eric at “people yelling” level. This is known as ‘poor audio quality’… Is Eric trying to win the loudness war!?
0:05 “A couple of minutes ago, one of my biggest detractors” OH yeah nytroxious is so a biggest detractor. Nytroxious has done like one video two years ago that called your shit e-drama. I personally would have called your work unwatchable shit but that would be an insult to shit. Just gotta love how sensational this is, clearly this is a video about herculean battles with great accomplishments because seriously… why make a video about this?
0:16 Eric decides to read the comment in a loud voice… because clearly I should be listening to this video at 4% volume. Nytroxious’s comment is and I quote using this image:
Okay so there are several things wrong with Asalieri’s take on the quote. Refuting one point of the argument and pretend the rest aren’t problems is a chewbacca defense. If someone calls me a liar, a fool and a knave and I only refuse the fool and knave parts then I’m still screwed for being called a liar. To be fair, refuting one or two statements in an oppositions argument gives the impression that the others are wrong however that doesn’t mean anything because if all it took was one false fact to damned the rest then science would be screwed. Quite a few things in science aren’t proven for sure, for example gravity. We don’t know what molecule gravity operates on but no scientist in the world would admit that gravity isn’t a real concept. This is because all the other facts we know about gravity such as its effect and its intensity are true. So looking back at Nytroxious’s argument literally everything else is true. There is no backlash on the channel compare on contrast to whenever Eric makes a mistake and a whole months if not years worth of comments gets 1984’d on his channel’s discussion page. Eric is right to say its wrong however on the grounds that Nytroxious is using inductive reasoning, a type of reasoning in which nothing is fully proven for sure. Thus the statement rephrased from “does not exist” to “very likely does not exist”. You can’t have inductive reasoning that behaves like deductive reasoning.
Going back to what’s right on nytroxious’s comment, its perfectly acceptable for nytroxious to complain that Eric doesn’t do good research and that he lies and quote mines. After all he’s doing that right now! What was the context that Eric put for this quote again? “Biggest hater” and “moron” hmmmm? I wonder if Eric realizes that quote mining can be done by lying about the context. Heck I can do this for any famous quote except instead of being an asshole I can do it for comedic effect.
The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated. – Ghandi ‘Train Robber MCSTABBY’ said while beheading a chicken and stabbing buffalos in the ass
Quote mining is the act of taking a quote out of context, that includes lying about the circumstances of the quote and the traits of who said it. By saying this quote is from a biggest hater and from a moron you’ve done exactly what nytroxious said you normally do… misrepresent your opposition. Good Job Eric, you’re lack of reading between the lines has accidentally resulted in you stabbing yourself.
The other things nytroxious mentions are also completely true to someone else’s surprise since the complains seem to be completely ripped from my previous article on the subject. Indeed the kickstarter that Eric complained about was obviously fake and if it wasn’t they didn’t make any money on it. And the entire 3 minute beginning of the RAR on ranting robots was completely filler because it referred to angry reviewing… which can’t be done when you speak in monotone (or can you?).
Wow all that and we aren’t even a minute in yet… is it legal to make this many mistakes in such a short time period? Oh wait we’re not done yet… Eric doesn’t even read the entire quote instead he mis-reads it (because clearly this video isn’t rushed enough) he reads everything up to the second sentence properly but then removes the of in the third sentence. Quote mining is also changing the meaning of a sentence. “out your ass” is much different from “out of your ass”. The difference is purely semantics but I’d like to note that if anyone wants to be fair… you should read the quote PROPERLY and not make edits to because its easier for you. OH GOD this seven minutes… oh come on really?
0:38 Eric says he saved the video and that the entire video is here in its entirety. Wow I wonder if someone will tell the ranting robots about this so they can claim copyright and stolen footage complaints. Oh thank goodness the rest of the video is just shot for shot the ranting robots bible episode. I have never been so relieved to see people make fun of the bible before
*okay well there’s not much to talk about the top 20 bible mistakes episode. Its not particularly crap… but it is offensive and the ratio between funny and offensive is skewed towards offensive. The statement “not your best work” would be an understatement. Most of the complaints are pretty valid, God in the bible has a serious body count and according to some experts, a body count greater than the devil. I’m not saying god is evil… because I’m agnostic, what I am saying is that the ranting robots forgot that a valid premise isn’t exactly the same as a funny premise. Bible episode sucks and even if you agree with god being an asshole, the fact of the matter is that its the bible, you shouldn’t be taking other people’s interpretations of the text as your spiritual guidance. The bible was made so that individuals can read it and come up with their own lessons. Enlightenment comes from within not from two robots going on tangent about god’s killing sprees and odd edicts*
5:55 the ranting robots video ends and Eric says he wants to hear Nytroxious’s excuse about why he didn’t know the top 20 bible video didn’t exist… Uh Eric, there’s the key problem in that the top 20 bible video stopped existing by the time you posted your RAR. So Nytroxious’s excuse is that he didn’t have a time machine and forgot to realize he was using inductive reasoning when he made a deductive statement. That’s a fairly good excuse considering the crap you’ve done Eric. Where’s your excuse about thinking the angry reviewing genre is dead? Where’s your excuse for repeatedly quote mining people? Where’s your excuse that you still after all this time, believe you have done nothing to infuriate or otherwise believe you haven’t earned any serious amount of disrespect for your inability to be responsible? What’s your excuse for continuing to produce crappy sports related episodes that no one is convinced that you have put any real work into them to the point that you have to disable ratings for each and every one of these episodes? You hear that sizzle Eric? That’s your ass on the grill for repeatedly running from your problems and refusing to do a goddamn thing to solve any of it. I haven’t even listed half of the problems you’re still running from and refuse to settle. This is the last thing you should be trying to do Eric; you definitely shouldn’t be acting as if your critics don’t have excuses, there’s quite a few people who believe you commit child abuse and they still seem convincing because your reputation is that freaking horrible. There are plagues that are more well-received than you and I’m afraid its because you refuse to settle anything or even sincerely say you’re sorry. Even in this episode you lied and I can’t believe you would do that. Are you dick dastardly or something?
6:22 “This pretty much proves that you have some misguided idiotic grudge against me” So a guy who’s been fairly inactive expressed skepticism towards the existence of a video and now you, Eric Gaede, feel free to put words in that nytroxious hasn’t even said? Last time I checked a grudge means more than just one comment and there’s literally no way nytroxious would be crazy enough to state that you faked the entire last 5 or so minutes of ranting robots video. That’s about as unjustified as the people who say you have sex with your kids as in its completely untenable and has no real evidence to support it. Maybe just maybe Eric, if you showcased some actual insanity from nytroxious you could convince people that he really does have a grudge… but oh wait he doesn’t because he’s mostly inactive you dunce!
6:29 “Go bother someone else for a change you little weasel” Wow all he asked was for some transparency and you greeted him with this message. Wow! I can’t wait to see how you react to the homeless in the street. The tone should fit the crime Eric. This was a crime of semantics… not a guy who’s been hounding you for years.
6:36 “And when you do make sure you’re not lying and exaggerating the fucking truth like you usually do you douche. Go back to what you’re good at, let me show you” Then shows a picture where a minute passes and he gains a roughly 70 dislikes… okay? That’s not evidence of anything. You get 70 dislikes on average Eric. Heck you should have seen the reaction to your “april fools” video that was much worse. You’ve got to be kidding me if you honestly think that some guy who’s been inactive and nowhere near as fucking petty to give a shit about the dislike bar would bother to use a bot. Oh and to make matters worse, the next RAR has 200 likes a number that makes no where near sense in the context of how many people actually bother to rate Eric’s RARs. To make it mores embarrassing after youtube did a bot account purge, guess what? The 200 likes dropped below 200 only to rise again shortly after. This is an even stupider attempt to slander nytroxious because this is the cold hard truth, Eric’s videos very quickly lose their watch-ability and audience. The comments on this video? most of them are two weeks old and this video is only 3 weeks old. Everyone who actually gives a shit will watch the video the day it comes out and after two or three weeks people will stop caring. These aren’t timeless classics Eric! These aren’t TGWTG videos that are incredibly entertaining and draw millions of views. These are crappy videos that were churned out in less than hour of work that are humorless and filled with ego. How can you even blame nytroxious for exaggerating the truth when that’s exactly what you did in this video. Nytroxious made several strong undeniable statements that were completely ignored just to target one statement that he had every right to make.
Now Eric feels the need to pretend that the one guy who asked a question is somehow directly and given what he implied is the only one responsible for the 70 or so people he’s pissed off over the years. Which brings me to the central problem I’ve been pointing out since the beginning. There’s no responsibility here or a commitment of any kind. What Eric has just done is just mark another person who posed skepticism and blame that person for problems that quite frankly is such a chewbacca defense that I am literally going to put a picture of chewbacca here. The worst part of all this is that Eric didn’t even use the word hater right, because nytroxidious posed legit criticism and pointed out several on going problems with his code of ethics. The only hater exposed here was you Eric.
Update: Two things I want to discuss but I don’t want to make a new article about:
1. Eric’s sports videos are getting an absurd amount of thumbs up. I could call this botting but quite frankly IT IS sports time. What I am surprised about is the lack of thumbs downing. This means that people have wisely decided to not bother to express their hatred for shitty, very low budget, damn near racist videos that are apparently sports related; but not really fooling anyone into thinking Eric isn’t going to be an asshole when an opportunity presents its self. There’s good news and bad news in all this: The bad news is “people have stopped giving a shit” the good news is “people stopped giving a shit about a terrible and pointless series that literally exists to try and tire critics out”
2. Eric made a laughably terrible statement on his discussion page which surprisingly hasn’t been 1984’d. Unsurprisingly, it’s another one of those “all my critics are X, I’ve never done X” statements.
“well, particularly BECAUSE it’s those people [lasersquad, Glion1994, and Kiki], all whom can’t be bothered to give a truthful and objective criticism regarding my person, is that you can’t trust their testimony. Ask a neutral source that doesn’t have a ‘side’. And no, when you spend 2 days with a rating at 60+ and only 3-4 dislikes and then from one day to another, AFTER the bulk of the views have come in, suddenly 100 dislikes pop up, that is highly suspect. Stop trying to act as though that is not fabricated, that’s unbecoming of even you. I haven’t started anything with anyone, i’ve been a pretty neutral and peaceful guy for at least the last two years. I don’t know what you really want from me other than to be a dick, Nytro.” – Eric Gaede
“well, particularly BECAUSE it’s those people [lasersquad, Glion1994, and Kiki], all whom can’t be bothered to give a truthful and objective criticism regarding my person, is that you can’t trust their testimony”
Thats…. not even a sentence. When you put a statement inbetween commas, like it has been done in the block quote and here, the statement is considered an aside. A statement between commas is a statement provided solely for the information of a reader and the sentence can be read just fine without the statement inbetween commas. Another way of doing this is to use brackets.
For example: “When you put a statement inbetween commas, the statement is considered an aside”
See? the statement still reads properly but it has less information.
Now let’s see what happens to Eric’s first sentence
“well, particularly BECAUSE it’s those people, is that you can’t trust their testimony”
Great its like the video description, Eric couldn’t even do the first sentence without causing a massive error!
If Eric doesn’t even know how to do a comma aside… how the hell can he judge my “testimony”? And a “testimony”!? This isn’t a testimony Eric! A testimony is a statement given in court or evidence that justifies the existence of something. So not only has Eric not able to understand how to do an aside, but Eric also can’t understand what the word testimony means. This all just the first sentence folks!. Just keep pretending you are the victim Eric. That’ll do wonders for your already inflated ego! I wonder if I should point out that saying our testimony is full of lies is saying that we always lie and do so unlawfully… then again Eric has severe issues with telling the truth as almost everything he says is a lie so I’d actually be surprised if he didn’t say we lied.
“Ask a neutral source that doesn’t have a ‘side’.”
I did Eric. They quickly found out how much of a douchebag you are and how willing you are to villify people for no real reason. The people who hate you Eric were neutral at one point… Heck I was a neutral party until I found out how bad you were compared to Irate Gamer!
“And no, when you spend 2 days with a rating at 60+ and only 3-4 dislikes and then from one day to another, AFTER the bulk of the views have come in, suddenly 100 dislikes pop up, that is highly suspect”
Wow two things: 1. Eric admits his videos suck and that they have a shelf life of a day.
2. Eric seriously believes that he can call things like “bulk of views” not bothering to remember that people have their patterns and is trying to justify this… to himself… that’s just creepy.
“Stop trying to act as though that is not fabricated, that’s unbecoming of even you.”
Translation: Yes guy I am arguing fruitlessly with, you must accept my totally delusional, inconsequential and lame conspiracy theory about how my work doesn’t suck and there’s a cult hive mind that is always totally organized and interconnected that must devote its lifespan to hating my work. This conspiracy theory does not sound stupid in retrospect!
Perhaps if you actually think fully before you run these ideas in public… then maybe you wouldn’t sound like a crazy person Eric? Also what do you mean by unbecoming of you? In the video you said it was HIM that did it!
“I haven’t started anything with anyone, i’ve been a pretty neutral and peaceful guy for at least the last two years.”
So yeah its been a long time hasn’t it and this article comes late well after Asalieri did his shitty rant on youtube copyright. Before I can even begin to explain what’s wrong with Asalieri’s stance on copyright, I must first explain what’s going on and of course, my take on the matter (it would be hypocritical/confusing if I didn’t).
The current copyright crisis that youtube is going through appears to be problem with google’s inexperienced youtube programming team. Of the many copyright strikes given out, more than half of the companies don’t want their IP to be enforced. Keep in mind that not wanting your IP to be enforced is a BIG deal! Copyright law essentially states that if you fail to defend your IP within a reasonable time frame you lose the rights to your IP and any average joe can take you to court over that and make it public domain. Copyright lasts 75 or more years too (authors lifespan + 75 years), so this is a big deal. I would like to note that only the person who owns the copyright is allowed to make claims of copyright infringement (or set up a system that automatically does it for them). Since youtube is making copyright claims for companies that don’t want them doing it for them, they are violating the companies rights and patents, which is ironically, more illegal than allowing pirated movies and silent gameplay videos to exist. Like I said before, allowing someone to use your copyright and not stopping them is quick way to lose your copyright. So how about letting someone enforce a copyright that you own, but didn’t authorize them to act? This is a PR nightmare and it’s all google’s fault especially since people are well aware now that youtube isn’t in trouble for copyright infringement but rather are overstepping their bounds. The only good news is that people with content ID match only lose ad revenue and not their entire channel but that’s like saying its okay that the hurricane didn’t kill anybody; the hurricane just destroyed the dam, our water supply and all the buildings. No ad revenue, means no incentive to make videos + no ability to pay for daily needs = need another source of income = less time to make videos. Heck this article would have came way sooner if I didn’t have to work for a living. People are able to produce so much content because they get paid for it and that’s why people keep watching, because they like the content that person produces.
This also brings up an even bigger question, the ad revenue that gets earned while the video disabled is supposed to go to the company that made the claim. But the companies aren’t making the claims and never asked youtube to make claims thus now the question must be asked “where is the ad revenue going?”. If the companies aren’t aware that youtube is redirecting the ad revenue, then there’s no system in place for them to get that ad revenue. Is all the money going directly into google’s pockets? Sure looks like it from my angle.
As for the youtube people affected by this, well its time to consider either getting insurance (i.e getting managed by a company or switching to a video website that doesn’t pull stupid shit like this) or it might just be time to switch careers. You might think that’s harsh but quite frankly its either that or wait five or so months to the point they don’t have a Job and no stability. Careers come and go all the time just ask the all the bachelors of science out there doing jobs that don’t involve science (assuming they have a job to begin with). Job markets destabilize from time to time and while I’m not saying this is the apocalypse for youtube videos I am saying its getting to the point that people who aren’t already popular are probably not going to get popular. To get managed by a company you need to have connections which the average youtuber doesn’t have. Switching to another website requires you to set up the monetization system all over again and it could take months before you’re actually earning money again. And there’s no telling when your e-career gets cut short by a copyright strike shutting down your channel or content id match shutting down revenue since there’s no telling if the same system might be adopted on dailymotion or blip or what ever it is you’re using. While you had a legitimate career before and you can definitely make a stand against youtube’s copyright bullshit, look out for yourself first by securing another source of income in the meantime. Entire sectors of industries have been completely butchered before so don’t sit there lamenting the death of your industry when you’ve got bills pay (and kids to feed). It sucks sure but that’s what happens when no one decides to fix decade old laws.
Does the above advice not apply to you? Well it applies to Angry Joe who made an 18 minute long video where he ranted against youtube since it just disabled ad revenue on a good portion of his videos.
Angry Joe makes some good points but his attempts to invoke pathos with his ‘I have 7 dollars in my wallet’ shouldn’t have been done since that just reminds viewers how much money he was making before this happened. And of course there’s his contract which should be making him a good deal of money anyway (but we must remember that the ad revenue pays for his contract so without it its a negative investment to have Angry Joe working for TGWTG/Channel Awesome).
Edit: A less stupid rant from Angry Joe is available and was not mentioned because its not really necessary for me to follow what Angry Joe is doing. Watch the following video if you wish to have more information on youtube copyright bullshit
So where does Asalieri fit into this? Well he’s being an spiteful hypocrite as usual.
I’ll be discussing the video ‘About That AJ Rant…’
Not posting the video because its disgusting (his face I mean).
Edit: Nah how can I prove my point if I don’t show the video I’m discussing? That would be like Eric Gaede who thinks that displaying a 5 year old drawing will help his case. Warning: Do not look directly at the video, you may lose your lunch… you know I did.
0:18 Asalieri says that he couldn’t resist watching Angry Joe’s video (even though he said he wouldn’t) because he’s a hypocrite who always goes back on his word. Eric Gaede says “it was 18 minutes of a grown man crying about having his favorite toy taken away” with the text on screen saying that “this is a pretty understated representation of that video”
You know what? I could write something in response like how Angry Joe’s video had a point and that its really hypocritical to dismiss someone else’s problems about youtube copyright when you’ve called it bullshit too but let just put a video here that more aptly shows what a grown man crying about having his favorite toy taken away looks like.
Oh wait that’s Eric Gaede in this video, not bringing up a single good counter point to being shut down for harassment of another youtube partner. I love how Angry Joe actually said what was wrong with his predicament before degrading into childish pathos antics while Eric Gaede just jumps right in. I would like to note that Angry Joe is on a contract and is a professional so its not a toy he lost while Eric Gaede here just lost a channel with a pathetically low amount of subscribers, less than 1 million views (something Angry Joe gets regularly) and managed to accomplish nothing other than trolling. My guess is that in Eric Gaede’s world toy = something useful to another person but not me.
0:22 Eric Gaede says “if you want to know how to survive in the youtube of tomorrow its simple” Oh this is gonna be a treat. “Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
Sorry I can’t hear you over the extreme hypocrisy going on here
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
“Don’t use other people’s clips”
Holy shit I think I’m deaf from the hypocrisy. Um Eric? What’s RAR? What about the fact that you’re clearly basing your work of another person’s work. That still counts as using the other person’s work… do you know that Eric? Please E-beg for a dictionary so you can use it (and by use I mean read not, eat the pages or use to hit people). Oh and fair use called, it says you can because that’s the only way to show people you’re not lying. So folks in Eric Gaede’s world, the portion of fair use that allows you to put evidence in your review doesn’t exist but the portion that allows you to reference the work does (sweet delicious doublethink right here). Remember folks, there are words that are copyrighted too but you can use them without infringing as long as you don’t name your work after it (i.e you can say star-wars, discuss it and the characters, but you are fucking screwed if named your next novel ‘star wars’).
Edit: Words cannot be copyrighted but they can be trademarked. Its practically the same thing except it only prevents someone from using the word in their title. This got abused to death by edge games (they sued anyone who had edge in their title) which got shutdown when they tackled EA over mirror’s edge. In addition, George Lucas tried to trademark the word droids and this is why battletech is called battletech and not battledroids. TLDR: You can yell trademarked words as long as you want just don’t name anything after them. This is what is known as fair use.
0:33 Eric Gaede says “Yahtzee has been doing this for years now and with great success” Yup that explains why no one else follows his format or the fact that he has a lot of people who hate him because he’s not a real reviewer but its hard to tell otherwise (Yahtzee himself says to not take his opinions seriously). In short, no you can’t do that, that’s like saying its okay to smoke because one guy smoked a pack a day and lived to 100. Yahtzee is successful because he’s a good ranter… hey wait a minute? Eric! Don’t you hate it when people take other people’s themes? Oh what the hell Eric? why does Angry Joe’s computer read “kittensluts.com” do you seriously fantasize about other people watching cat porn? Last video you jacked off to a mother and her kids. In Eric Gaede’s world everyone is out to satisfy their penis except Eric, because he’s above that except when he jerks off to a mother and her kids. Also in that world, its okay to fantasize about other people doing socially awkward things and its okay to pretend that your fantasy makes them less of a person. Seriously why show that Angry Joe is watching cat porn? What does this add aside from petty hate?
1:00 Eric Gaede makes a disgusting face and mocks Angry Joe’s statement that he put a lot of work into his show and quit his job to make it work.
1:13 Eric Gaede dissects (in the loosest form of the word) the statement and says that quitting your job was a terrible Idea. Yeah because earning craptons of money for 4 years was a bad move. Oh hey Eric? What’s your occupation? Any statement on your attempts to join Reviewtopia? How about your attempts to join TGWTG? You said that last one was a lie but you resorted to lying and running away shortly after.
1:21 Eric Gaede says “Your quote on quote ‘Job’ was your vacation”. This is the dumbest fucking thing I’ve have ever heard. Yeah because working day and night, managing fans, making videos that require on average 6 hours of work for 30 minutes of footage is a vacation. So I guess going to that water slide was one hell of a work session eh Eric? I gotta love the ‘Get a REAL job’ argument here. This is like the most bigoted argument you could make, its like saying that people aren’t allowed to live their lives because they’re doing something that doesn’t bother or hurt anyone but you’re so petty that you feel that they should be miserable like you. Speaking of which Eric… what is your occupation? Encyclopedia Dramatica shows that you live on welfare and your many attempts to show that these guys lie about you have failed miserably. Considering your track record for hypocrisy I wouldn’t be surprised if you are living off government money.
1:24 Eric says that Angry Joe enjoyed every minute of it… hold on… I can’t see anything because I’m too busy overly generalizing everything to the point that I can’t notice the important messages. Oh wait I can see now that the aneurysm stopped and blood can now flow to my brain. Eric… do you reflect on what you say? I mean its fairly obvious you do this because you like to. No one likes your rants against TGWTG or Angry Joe because people have wised up and realized ‘oh shit he’s serious’. This is just disgusting, pretending that you know everything about Angry Joe’s work ethic. How can you even prove this anyway? Is there a statement written by Angry Joe saying “Throughout my career I’ve never had a setback, never gotten angry at a coworker, its been smooth fucking sailing for 4 years”?. Acting like Angry reviewing is the easier fucking job and is fun is like saying that hollywood actors have it easy. Its wrong on so many levels and it fails to do research or show that you are even knowledgeable in the reality you claim to be from. Oh and I just realized that Angry Joe did have a career disaster in the form of his interview at the VGAs which I should note Asalieri was all over. So not only does Asalieri know his statement is a flat out lie but he even made a video that ranted on that particular subject. Its titled ‘Angry Joe and the VGAs’ and it uses footage from the event. Should I be surprised you’re being a hypocrite again Eric?
1:30 Eric Gaede solidifies the fact that he’s blatantly lying when he says “Now did you enjoy 70 hours or 80 hours a week of pointing a camera at yourself playing video games”. Wow that was the least accurate description of the Angry Joe show I’ve seen. You couldn’t get anymore off the mark if you said the Angry Joe show involved “a man riding a whale while farting rainbows”. Tell me Eric, do you even watch this show you apparently hate? This is ethnocentrism, you think that because you hate him, its all the justification you need to insult him. The Angry Joe show involves Angry Joe talking about the game while game footage plays in the background. We don’t see Angry Joe playing the game (Usually, I don’t really watch Angry Joe on a regular basis, so feel free to dispute this) and it sure as hell isn’t a happy smiling douche-bag playing games on camera. The level of ethnocentrism would be like if I tried to insult Martin Luther-king for his speech because he was black and the English language sounded funny. I’m not exaggerating either, Eric Gaede hasn’t made a single legit reason as to why he thinks Angry Joe isn’t talented or has earned his position as his target and he sure as hell doesn’t know how Angry Joe makes his show or any portion of the actual show itself. The amount of pointless hatred for him here goes to the point of racism even though instead of being racially motivated, its ego motivated. Grow up Eric, you’ve got to know what you’re talking about before you can even speak, otherwise you’re just hurting people with false information.
1:38 Eric says its still possible to do reviews because now all you have to do is direct your audience to what you’re referencing. Okay so what if there aren’t any references? What if you’re the first reviewer? What about specific gameplay glitches or cutscenes? How would you show gameplay with this mechanism? Under youtube’s broken system gameplay videos are copyright infringement. What about let’s players? Are they just supposed to comment and leave the screen blank? Heck just linking to something still counts as copyright infringement. Go ahead link to a download of copyrighted movie and see how well that works for you. Heck link to a gamefaq FAQ and see how it goes for you. Gotta love how you don’t know anything about reviewing Eric… gee its almost as if you’re an untalented loser who hates everyone who actually knows how to review.
1:45 Eric Gaede says Angry Joe is in trouble because he let all his ‘borrowed’ footage do all the talking. Clearly game reviews in Eric Gaede’s world don’t need to show gameplay footage or even the game at all. Also what do you mean all the talking for you? Again this is Eric just plain lying about the state of affairs on Angry Joe’s Show. This is what is known as prejudice and over generalization. Eric is dismissing evidence he should know damn well by now given how he stalks people (and uses informants) but repeatedly fails to use the information he has. In Eric Gaede’s world he thinks that what he says must be true because he said it. What’s really sad here is that he does have the evidence to kick Angry Joe’s ass he just refuses to do any real work and in a way shows that Eric himself is the one crying over losing out and who really really needs to get a real job (and for all those who thought the article was over at this point, I apologize for I have a demanding job and that job prevents me from writing this blog as quickly as I would like to. This is ironic considering Mr.Eric Gaede’s hypocritical advice).
1:50 Oh boy just when I thought you couldn’t get any dumber Eric. Eric states that being able to post copyrighted material via fair use was Angry Joe’s favorite toy. Seriously? Uh Eric you do the same thing, in fact you have more copyrighted content on screen for longer times then Angry Joe does. In Eric Gaede’s world he never has to keep track of the things he himself does because ‘its in the past’ or ‘I’m fucking lazy and refuse to solve problems’ or in Mr.Killultra’s (I just love putting his name on this blog) manner of writing ‘his superior morality dictates that creating problems for other people to clean up after is good and those that contribute to the community (like Angry Joe) are wimpy and must be consumed’. I would also like to note that Eric Gaede is aptly demonstrating why this doesn’t work. In previous rants, Eric Gaede made it look like you didn’t need to see the video or the work in question to agree with him. It worked because well people are lazy and its easy to stir lazy people into a frenzy (ironically) because they’re lazy and want easy justice (this of course means that nothing really gets done). It is now a massive failure because people now have to see the video in question to get what you are talking about and anyone who isn’t trolling will realize that you lied and have no idea what the video was actually about. There’s also the dissonance in attitude. Angry Joe puts up a very convincing argument and his attitude is way more suited to the situation than Eric’s is. Angry Joe is Angry and scared while Eric is just smug and overly confident. The problem here is that Eric is trying to give advice, and who the fuck takes advice from someone being a smug asshole?
1:58 Eric repeats the Yahtzee argument. So yeah folks, just because one guy did it its safe to keep doing it. One guy managed to peacefully co-exist with bears, so that’s right folks you can make your entire career out of diplomacy with bears. So what if Yahtzee says he’s not a reviewer or the fact that the bear guy got him and his girlfriend killed tragically when another group bears moved in. In Eric’s world, they did it, so clearly you, an entirely different person, will have the same result! Fucking idiot!
2:05 Eric says Razorfist doesn’t show gamefootage and does a good job reviewing games. What the fucks a razorfist? Hold on let me go research. Oh you mean this guy?
Yeah that’s not fucking game footage right there. That must be me lying and not giving you the benefit of the doubt, right Eric!? Oh and I’ve got to love how Razorfist isn’t even popular. I mean seriously how is this an example? Not only is the example wrong but Razorfist isn’t popular or influential my guess is the only reason Eric picked him is because he’s his friend. Could you name someone with a crapton of subscribers (over 1 million) who is a game reviewer and doesn’t use game footage? That would be impressive but alas Yahtzee has the subscribers, doesn’t work on youtube, and isn’t a game reviewer (he’s meant to be funny). Only in Eric’s world could you name evidence that blatantly contradicts itself and be expected to be taken seriously. “A few images and a couple of similes and he’s ready to go” wow that wasn’t even close to what Razorfist does. Hey Razorfist are you sure this guy is your friend? Razorfist’s show is about heavy metal and this features heavily through his reviews.
2:20 Eric Gaede says that Angry Joe stated in his rant that corporations are stealing his money. Eric says this is not possible as his content is no longer available. This physically harming me, the amount of no research and blatant stupidity is just alarming here. Can you fit this much stupid in the same spot? Does Eric even know how the youtube system is working right now? His videos aren’t down Eric!!! The ad revenue is being siphoned. Fucking hell how can you… why would you…. Who the fuck makes a video about a subject that contains no evidence, no truth and dares to call it advice? Eric Gaede that’s who!
Notice that the same video seems to be still be accessible? I also love how the screen clearly says “your video is available and playable”. OH OH Oh my god. I think I just realized why Eric Gaede made this video. Eric is confusing his trauma with the youtube system in which his first account got banned with Angry Joe being angry at copyright content Id match. There’s no excuse here, everyone knows the videos aren’t being taken down. Unless Eric is using the same youtube search engine he was using in the previous video I reviewed there’s no excuse for not checking if Angry Joe’s videos got removed. I don’t see how you could view the entirety of Angry Joe’s rant and come out saying that his videos got removed. Eric… stop making generalizations about what is happening and get off your ass and explore and do research. Oh wait that would make the video creation process like a job and that can’t be right, not in Eric’s world!
2:32 Eric says that if you can’t talk about another person’s content without featuring it prominently then you don’t have a lot to say about it. Wow that was dumb but not surprising… not anymore. Clearly Eric subscribes to the ‘tell don’t show’ method of story telling even though he’s clearly featuring his entire rant entirely on Angry Joe’s rant to the point of naming the video ‘about angry joe’s rant’ and to the point of such high confidence that he totally misrepresented Angry Joe’s predicament. Good job Eric, you couldn’t be more of a hypocrite then you are now. Seriously its like he just wanted to talk about it but couldn’t be bothered to actually think of things to say. This is incredibly shallow and generic, yet its the stupid kind of shallow and generic. I’d expect this level of research failure from Chris Bores but then again I guess you’ve been exchanging tips.
2:47 Eric says its time for people to start using their imagination. No Eric we’ve seen what using your imagination results in. A rant about a subject that doesn’t really involve that subject but your trauma over youtube’s system and criticisms that is in no way applicable to the subject you’re criticizing but instead apply to yourself. Add in narrow superlative examples that aren’t really examples and you’ve got a clear example of how convoluted Eric’s imagination is. I also like the fact that Eric is telling consumers who watch game reviews to just imagine because that will help them understand what the hard concrete concept of the game is like and how gameplay, controls and visuals will be like if they buy that $60 game. You can imagine that halo 4 will have Plasma Drill sniper rifles and that will never be the case. Using your imagination to envision a hard concrete concept in order to decide whether or not to make a purchase is prone to disaster. Also Eric is insinuating that Angry Joe doesn’t have creative jokes or concepts…? I am honestly convinced that Eric is talking about himself here.
Comedy time: What if the president was doing this? “Hmmm I imagine that syria is full of yellow and orange people so we should negotiate with the unicorns in order to get their oranges which will solve world hunger if we use Gerald Lightning fist to make food rainbows. Hey its your imagination, its no where near real life! But in Eric’s world imagination is the way to go when it comes to deciding on real life decisions.
3:22 Eric notes Angry Joes statement at 13:48 (angry joe’s rant) and suggests that Angry Joe go clean his room. Eric, insults are for when you are already winning the argument fatass.
3:28 Eric says that Angry Joe should start creating his own work. Hey Eric aren’t you basing this rant on Angry Joe’s work? You’re no different in fact I’d say you make your entire career on other people’s work. Oh and didn’t you post soccer footage just right before and after this video? “what a concept” says the guy who isn’t original in any shape or form. Eric, lying isn’t going to help and pretending that the state of affairs is as how you imagine it isn’t earning you any IQ points. The Angry Joe show requires creativity to make the skits to critique the game and to do practically anything. You on the other hand have used nothing but generic complaints such as “do creative work derp” or “this guy did that, therefore you can” to a situation that is very unique. What’s more uncreative, the guy who contributes to society in his own way or that guy who uses generic statements for everything, even when they don’t apply?
3:38 Eric says that since Angry Joe has a closet full of costumes he can make a show out of it. Stop giving advice Eric, you don’t know how make a successful show or hell how to even be correct. Only in Eric’s World could someone dressing up in costumes (some of which are copyrighted material I might add like the gorn costume) still be entertaining and as informative as a game review show that showed game footage and made criticisms and showed evidence to support them. This is the equivalent of telling cheese manufacturers to put rat poison in their cheese so that less cheese will be eaten by rats. Its this naive and petty way of thinking that really creeps me out. Is Eric really so full of himself that he thinks this is good advice? Is he being sarcastic? There’s no change in voice so its clear he means it.
3:43 “if what makes your show strong is other people’s content, then what do we need you for? Cut the middle man out!” Eric do you even think about what you say? Is there no filter, no shame, no reflection? That is word for word a criticism that is already leveraged against your show. That last video you made about the thanksgiving crafts didn’t add any material or criticism to the videos featured. I would like to note that this doesn’t even apply to Angry Joe because its the character himself that makes the show worth watching. Don’t believe me? Just watch the show with the volume muted, see how well that goes for the shows entertainment value. I’m actually getting really worried about whether or not Eric has finally snapped and believes his problems are actually Angry Joe’s problems. Was Eric and Angry Joe competing for a spot at TGWTG? Because that would explain a lot. Oh and Eric stop selling perlers.
3:47 “let everyone else check out the games and find out for themselves if they like them or not” Wow Eric, you clearly want the games industry to die don’t you. And I mean it, I mean legit DIE, because that’s what caused the video game industry crash of 1983. So in Eric’s world people should be confused and overloaded with options and allow themselves to buy inferior and half-ass products. Heck why not stop there, just tell people to watch crappy and inferior youtube personalities too like yourself Eric Gaede!
Its like he doesn’t know what a review is and why its there. Does Eric not know cause and effect? Does he not know that words have influence to them? Of course he does, because he begged for a laptop and got one.
3:51 Eric says that your opinion should speak for itself. Uh Eric, opinions already do that. That’s why saying ‘in my opinion’ is a very redundant thing to say because it obvious that your opinion is your opinion and not someone else’s. Eric also says that you shouldn’t have to illustrate your opinion or its worthless. Wow, then research and graphs and statistics must be useless things. You illustrate your opinion to show the merits of your opinion. Good god read a book Eric, and do some fucking research.
While I could end the article here let’s just say I’m well aware that I’m being very redundant here when I say that Eric, you are the last person to say that especially since you’re illustrating your opinion in this very video. You’re using images and repeatedly going in depth with your biased and petty hatred of Angry Joe. An opinion without illustration would be “I hate X” or “I like X” and that’s it. If you’re trying to say don’t illustrate your opinion using copyrighted footage than not only have you not said that but its still wrong because there’s no way to prove the opinion has merit unless you show evidence. There’s a reason why text reviews have become less popular than video reviews and its because video can show evidence much better than written reviews. And before you ask me to make a video review know that I don’t have the equipment to do so.
4:30 Eric addresses the part where Joe pulls out his wallet with 7 bucks and says that google only cares about his money. Eric criticizes this by saying the same fucking thing he’s already said (you know this just weakens the argument right Eric?) by suggesting that its hypocritical to complain about not being able to make money when he uses copyrighted material. Eric you do realize that companies like Google have so much more money than the people they employ. For every dollar that Angry Joe gets I’m fairly sure that Google gets 3 times more. Angry Joe is stating that he uses material fairly as in fair use and taking away ad revenue just because google is money hungry is pathetic. Speaking of which Eric you’ve based this entire rant on Angry Joe’s rant, which is his work and thus this flawed argument applies to you. It doesn’t even help that this wasn’t Angry Joe’s argument. Just make shit up Eric, that works right?
4:40 Eric gets really personal… wow how petty. Essentially Eric says that Angry Joe shouldn’t state that he’s not in it for the money or because he loves the genre when he’s clearly doing this for money. Hey Eric…. what is your attempt to apply to reviewtopia or this image here?
The comments here show that Eric still intends to do RAR but he doesn’t want to use copyrighted footage in case he gets content ID matched. Now unless Eric is so delusional that he doesn’t know that its not a copyright strike then he clearly intends to avoid being content ID matched. But that’s the thing, being content ID matched only prevents making money and thus Eric must be in it for the money because there’s no reason to limit his own production because content ID doesn’t do jack shit for freedom of expression.
Assuming he is totally delusional, it doesn’t change the fact that he’s made it rather clear he’s in it for the money. He advertises his friends commercial products, he sells products himself and he’s asked for a laptop and pretends he’s poor when he’s not.
4:56 Eric continues to be a pompous douchebag and repeats his thesis that Angry Joe get a real job. No comment
5:07 Eric lists people who can do it without copyrighted material and adds AlphaOmegasin and moviebob to the list.
Oh yeah AlphaOmegasin doesn’t use copyrighted content that’s just animated series batman who is totally original… DO NOT STEAL
Totally original call of duty footage. DO NOT STEAL
5:14 “so many people are capable of telling you about something without showing you that something” Yeah I know Eric, plenty of people have called you a douchebag.
5:17 “oh god here comes the hate brigade” No shit you didn’t do any research or even had a clue what words mean. “this is the only video I’m willing to do on this subject” Oh really then, good to see there isn’t a second… oh wait there is NICE. “I bear this man absolutely no hatred at all” Yeah that’s why you told him to get a real job and pretended your problems with the youtube system were his problems. “I think he’s being ridiculous here with his misguided anger here” yeah because everyone should be okay with having their money taken away from them in Eric Gaede’s world. Hey Eric can you give me 5000 dollars so I can never give it back to illustrate my point?
“we all have our bad days” Except you Eric, you have bad days every day. Eric then says his soccer series is more rewarding than anything he’s ever produced. Running away already Eric? This is what I’m talking about when it comes to Eric and ADD. Its always like this:
1. Pick someone you hate/ This subject makes me really angry!
2. Repeatedly misrepresent them
3. Act like you know something and make suggestions that will get people killed/in trouble
4. Don’t know anything about your opponent, just pretend you do
5. Run and hide. Call people haters for saying the truth
5:43 “listen youtube is always gonna make changes and we’re always gonna hate those changes” Uh no. There are changes that people like, stop talking in absolutes. Also are you saying that its okay to let people ruin your life?
Now for his second video:
Eric essentially says that people who watch the rant videos are supporting youtube. Because you shouldn’t go to information sources to know more about the damage being done. Eric says everyone should boycott youtube… yeah because its the viewer who should do something not the producer who could just shut down their channel and move to blip or something. Eric essentially avoids noting his research failure in the previous video and just pretends that its youtube viewers fault that youtube hasn’t done anything. Hey douchebag, you do realize that it takes information distribution to spread awareness right? I don’t think Angry Joe is going to keep making videos until the situation is solved. Short-term youtube is still going to make money but quite frankly you only need to watch a rant once so its not like Angry Joe’s rant paid google millions of dollars. Heck this misses the entire point of why people were angry in the first place. This was exactly what Angry Joe was advocating and you lambasted him for it. Now you act like this is your stance to begin with? Bullshit. What about the “don’t use copyrighted material” bullshit? Not gonna defend that garbage? I guess its ‘already in the past’ isn’t it?
Oh and the video description defeats your own message ERIC!
“I’m not going to sit and cry about how youtube isn’t being fair, I for one will work around their system and make it work for me. It’s absolutely pointless to just sit there and whine about it, like Angry Joe did. What good did that do him? All he did was make you yahoos feel sorry for him, and those people with a brain basically scoffed at his futile video which anyone with half a brain knows will not move youtube’s heart.”
“I for one will work around their system and make it work for me” Translation: I will allow youtube to fuck me in the ass by moving the goal posts constantly. I am too insignificant and worthless to get anything done. Perhaps if I cooperate I’ll be able make money when everyone else is off youtube. Update: Considering that Eric has resumed using copyrighted footage and video game footage, its clear that this is what Eric wants to do.
“All he did was make you yahoos feel sorry for him, and those people with a brain basically scoffed at his futile video which anyone with half a brain knows will not move youtube’s heart” Translation: Collective action is worthless, be an Eric Gaede sheep and riot for about 2 days and then quit because you’re bored/an idiot. This describes about every Eric campaign ever. I would like to note that youtube copyright bullshit is what created TGWTG, which was a very successful branch off for those involved. Will Eric reference this? Nope because that requires him to move his arm and do a google search. Can’t waste calories now can we?
In a 2 minute video Eric Gaede couldn’t keep his hypocrisy out of it yet these 8 minutes of stupidity, hypocrisy and egotism show exactly just what kind of world Eric Gaede is living in.
Things I forgot to mention but totally should have:
In the clarification video Eric says that people should boycott youtube and stop supporting it if they hate it so much and that rant videos help youtube. Isn’t the clarification video another rant video?
In Eric’s world feeling sorry for Angry Joe is bad, but feeling sorry for Eric and buying him a laptop is A-OK!
Youtube’s changes screws over every single one of his friends yet he hasn’t mentioned feeling sorry for any of them.
Eric says watching youtube copyright rant videos are bad, that’s why he posted a second one.
Eric tells viewers to not post copyrighted material. He just posted a video that is essentially a let’s play of league of legends.
This article is not finished (edit it now is finished) if you are reading it you probably used the password that’s already known. In truth I could simply set it so the article publishes itself and without anyone knowing but during the period in which the article is private or password locked I contact several people I know and ask them for submissions and to proof read etc.
Now for the article
Originally this article was going to be called “Insanity: doing the same thing but expecting different results” but that title has already been used so it would be pointless to write the same thing twice. Eric Gaede, aka Asalieri, has decided that he wants to continue to piss people off by removing videos that contained him e-begging and him insulting other people who now have every legitimate grievances against him in a sad attempt to continue using the same pathetic defenses he’s already been using. Eric… no matter how many times you say that an incident is “in the past” and “resolved” the truth is its not resolved because the pain you caused is still there and by refusing to do anything about it you’re just letting people know that you like to run away from problems which only makes them more persistent. In fact several of Asalieri’s videos which have been deleted have simply been put back online by people who are well aware of Eric’s method of “resolving” issues.
Just because you deleted it and disown it doesn’t mean you don’t have to answer for what you’ve done Eric Gaede! You’ve told me to use your full name and stated that you’re not a troll… then why is it that you can’t ever solve a problem? A murderer who uses a gun to kill someone and then disown his gun and throws in a furnace is still going to jail for murder. Likewise the asshole which is Eric Gaede can delete his videos as many times as he wants, because quite frankly it will be back and message you preached in that video will still come back to bite you in the ass. Heck part of the reason why people hate Eric Gaede is the fact that he can’t review things but feels to need to call other people bad reviewers based on no evidence.
Nowhere is this more prominent in the video he made recently as of November 25th.
A one view wonder on the video ‘How to Make SLIME for kids’. First things first, the video itself, which is fairly harmless but the host of the show seems nervous and there’s the Ghostbusters theme running throughout the background. All in all I would agree that this video is pretty shit given that it seems to be made on a budget of 5 bucks, the children don’t need to be there and its pointless trying to tell us how to make slime if you don’t zoom in and show us the hand motions needed to make the slime. Instead we’re stuck with an overview shot of the lady and two kids while they mix the ingredients into slime in a tiny plastic container and we can’t see anything because we are in an overview shot. Since there’s no manning the camera and no time for editing we don’t even get to see the product up-close which means we don’t get to see the texture of the slime (arguably the most important part of a slime). In short the video could definitely be considered amateurish but it’s not really worth pointing out. There’s no major failures in the video (that aren’t caused by being low budget) and there’s nothing really funny to comment on. It’s bad sure but not the funny kind of bad. Why do this video anyway? Retsuprae has ethics to deal with and they still managed to find a series of videos where some guy fails to beat an easy boss 20 times and then has to use a cheat move to win (and spends over 3 videos worth of time trying the beat the boss and even includes a phone call because he’s too lazy to edit). My only guess is because Eric Gaede just loves plastering children, I mean why not? He uses his daughter for freaking views all the time. Heck this probably wouldn’t be bad if Asalieri actually brought up good points like the one I just mentioned… he doesn’t.
Now for the first time, I will actually do a full text review of his latest ‘one view wonder’ including time stamps.
Description of the video: Pay attention to the part where it says “we take a look at what’s left of YouTube’s search function, which has gone the way of the dodo thanks to Google plus and their terrible website designs”. This is going to bite him in the ass. “So here’s what you can find on YouTube today if you put in the search “crafts”. That is, very little to do with crafts” Oh this is really going to bite him in the ass.
0:00-0:09 Jesus Chris Eric Gaede! Do you know the phrase “turn it fucking down”? The volume here is so loud compared to the rest of video I’m surprised that he isn’t the subject of this ‘one view wonder’ video. With video making skills like that, I’m surprised your fans aren’t deaf Eric!
0:10 Asalieri says he’s our best friend… because best friends lie to each other and get them to do nasty things to other people over fake evidence. Eric talks about League of legends for some reason because that’s what you do in a video meant to entertain and inform people, make it a fucking Vlog.
0:23 Eric Gaede says it’s the holiday season… hmm that strange my calendar doesn’t have any holidays list in November aside from day light savings (if you think remembrance day is a holiday then you have issues). I find it funny that anti-capitalist Eric Gaede who hates it when people earn money for doing what they like is embracing the notion that November is a holiday season a notion only embraced by shop owners who want you to buy presents earlier.
Edit: Since Asalieri is American (despite hating freedom) there’s a chance he could be referring to thanksgiving… of course that doesn’t make any sense since he didn’t even bother calling this a thanksgiving video or even doing a thanksgiving craft video. Instead the closest he got was turkeys made out of hands.
0:32 A picture of something hideous holding something equally hideous but sprite looking appears with the words buy our perlers and flashing the message ‘shameless plug’. Just because you write the words ‘shameless plug’ doesn’t change the fact that you’ve aggressively marketed them. What the hell do perlers have to do with holiday crafts!? Not only that but are you honestly trying to market something in a video series meant to entertain and inform? That big NO NO you’ve been making a lot of fuss about Eric? Do you like being a hypocrite or is this just you ‘telling it like you see it’? Even if this a joke I can’t write it off as funny, you are selling perlers of other franchise’s characters, that’s copyright infringement which is funny because you also seem to say other people are unoriginal and don’t add anything to the genre they’re in. This a another major problem with Eric Gaede, he hates advertisements but it’s hard to find a video he has made that isn’t an advertisement for another channel or a service provider.
0:37 Eric lists a bunch of holiday crafts listing turkey out of hands twice, some other word and some random object that is unidentifiable since he cuts himself short. I don’t get the turkey’s out of hand or literally the kind of joke he’s trying to make here. Is he trying to say that holiday crafts are unoriginal? Is he trying to say that holiday crafts are boring? I don’t get it. Afterwards Eric Gaede says he wants to play more league of legends, considering how utterly bullshit this video is I’m not surprised he made it in a rush. Speaking of league of legends, anyone care to check whether Eric Gaede is the kind of player we expect him to be?
0:48 Eric says ‘let’s see what we can find today’ and types crafts into the search bar. You can clearly see that he has set the filter to ‘today’ which means that the search bar is working as intended. I now will refer to the description of the video where he says that YouTube search system doesn’t display anything remotely resembling crafts…. I will not rage but I will tell readers to go ahead right now and do a YouTube search and see if you find any of the videos that Eric Gaede has in this video. Oh wait that’s right you can’t! why? because Eric set it to fucking ‘today’ as a filter result so NO Eric you can’t write this off as shitty video because ‘YouTube’s search system fucked up’ like you wrote in the description. THE SYSTEM IS WORKING AS INTENDED, LEARN TO USE IT! I would also like to note how shallow this is, no one is going to find YouTube’s system shitty if you search using the ‘today’ filter. That means all it takes is a day to pass and the video isn’t relevant anymore. I would like to remind everyone that he honestly thinks he didn’t search using the filter ‘today’ since he wrote ‘So here’s what you can find on YouTube today if you put in the search crafts’ as ‘how to make slime for kids’ will show up if you make a search for ‘crafts’ in and around the time he made this video. NOT ONLY DOES THAT NOT HAPPEN BUT HE HAS THE BALLS TO PRETEND THAT THIS IS A RECOMMENDED VIDEO. Why else would he write that that YouTube’s search engine is broken? This is a textbook example of Eric Gaede lying again and it’s this shameful conduct that prevents him from being entertaining. Victimization is not comedy and if a real person has to be burnt for the joke then they had better have done what it is you’re making fun of them for otherwise you’re a major asshole. Case and point, picking on two little children and a lady doing an obscure very low budget show isn’t funny unless the lady did some major screw up like having a freak-out or swearing or mistreating the kids. Oh and you can easily see he lied, the video was only 10 hours ago… because YouTube recommends videos that have never been watched. Oh and someone made a screenshot of a YouTube search for ‘crafts video’ and guess what? No non-sense.
Is this Eric Gaede trying to jump on another bandwagon? The dead and tired trend of Google+ Bashing? The comment system may be broken with controversial comments getting more views and no character limit but that doesn’t mean the search system has been changed.
1:15 okay so Eric Gaede starts watching the video and not commenting on anything important and here’s where ANOTHER problem starts up. The lady says what they’re going to make (slime) and the kids get excited. Then smash cut to a reaction shot of Eric Gaede getting his hands stuck to his mouse. Uh okay? Eric Gaede… are you getting off on this? I know you don’t like getting your hands dirty in public and you have no trouble getting them dirty in private but that’s just disgusting; we don’t need to see you getting your hands stuck to the mouse (I guess he’s playing League of Legends as there are sounds in the background but quite frankly I don’t get the joke… it takes 30 minutes to play a decent game of that and its only been 15 seconds into the review material… ADD much?). Real talk now? Okay seriously, this is a major problem with this video and probably the whole series. What required a reaction shot? For someone who hates TGWTG and says people like Linkara are a piece of shit it’s strange that Eric Gaede would pick a reviewing format that is concept for concept identical to several major reviewers on TGWTG. You know the format, show clip of something really bad then reaction shot the show host saying something witty as a joke, or puking or dying or trying to commit suicide. But there’s no reason to make a reaction shot here! What’s the joke? That Eric Gaede masturbated and forgot to clean his hands? There are children in that video Eric! If that was the joke it wasn’t funny. Just like many things Eric tries to emulate (i.e. a good reviewer, a good citizen, a good person.etc) Eric Gaede seems to have tried and failed miserably to implement a formula that so many people have done successfully. I mean this text review is in that format… how do you fuck that up Eric?
1:30 The lady says that they’ll use brand-name Elmer’s glue and Eric then says that they should use generic brand because it’s cheaper and then says “I represent the competition”. Hey dingus, ever heard of people on show having to use what they’ve got? The lady said ‘we’re going to use Elmer’s glue’ not ‘you have to use Elmer’s glue’ it’s a craft show so it’s practically guaranteed they have to use quality ingredients and even then what’s to say the crazy glue has the proper chemical composition to make slime properly? The staples I bought from sparco is the same size stated for use with my stapler but it always jams while the staples I bought from S-marque manage to work just fine in my stapler. Different manufacturers, different quality. Just because it’s cheaper doesn’t mean it works; you get what you paid for. “I represent the competition” Uh no you don’t and when you do you do it very poorly. Heck tell that to Kyle, the guy you stalked and told everyone was an attention whore. And in addition (sigh) this joke doesn’t work because it’s a craft show it does not need to mention what glues you can use, it’s just suppose to tell you a sure-fire way to do something. What? Do you want the video to tell you what stores to go to? How would one go about avoiding this complaint? Telling viewers to make their own glue? Also Eric please keep your mouth closed, that’s just wrong and creepy. It makes it look like you’re doing something disgusting, especially since we can’t see your other hand.
1:49 The lady says ‘white kind is the one were going to be using’ and Eric replies with ‘Racist’; because the glue Eric is holding in his hand is not white glue… hurray for doublethink. Literally I have to disregard what I’m seeing to get the joke! A joke that’s not very good I might add especially since I have never seen black glue or anything other than transparent, white or purple. Top notch writing and editing there!
1:57 The lady says ‘you need one and half cups of glue’ and Eric annotates that it should be a lot of fun to measure that (I assume sarcastically). I don’t even need to tell you this is stupid since anyone familiar with cooking should have a FUCKING MEASURING CUP. How do you not know how to measure Eric?
2:00 Eric talks over the lady and says that they’ll need to use glad brand equipment to get the job done. I believe he makes a science fiction joke here as he mentions ‘time shifting’ because… that’s funny right? Right? I don’t even get what the complain is here unless he’s trying to say that the lady is blatantly marketing in which case Eric proves himself a hypocrite since he just advertised for crazy glue and not the kind you can find in a dollar store for cheaper. NEXT
2:13 The lady mentions using generic starch and where to buy it and Eric counters by saying that you can make it by squeezing it out of corn. I don’t… I just… What are The standards here? Every Critic has his standards for what is good, for example Gordon Ramsay hates microwaves, premade food, canned food and waiters not getting tips. He has long list of things he hates buts it not a contradictory list and it’s important to pay attention to because those are things that make a poor restaurant. Eric Gaede is a critic of YouTube videos and in this instance he is reviewing a craft show but his standards appear to be, don’t advertise brand name products and don’t tell the viewer to buy generic products. So the key to not get yelled at by Eric Gaede is to not exist, well that makes sense considering that was his attitude to the guys at the Irate Gamer sucks blog (he even argued that they not even human and in addition denied them freedom of association) as well as Kyle as well as many other people even his betrayed friend Game Boob. I would like to note that this is just unfair harassment now and I would also like to note that the when this article was being written the video ‘How to Make SLIME for kids’ had 18 thumbs down for no reason proving once again that Eric Gaede’s fans are people who enjoy the harassment and bullying of people who are weaker than them. I would also like to note that having contradictory standards and using them to justify harassment of others is what bullies do.
2:34 The lady says she will have 1.5 cups of starch to add to the 1.5 cups of glue and Eric Gaede says that there’s no point to say and that she should just say to take half and half. Two problems with this, one it’s a craft show, they have to say how much ingredient they are using! Two Measurements are needed to give audiences a scale on product to ingredient ratio, maybe you need 1.5 cups of starch and glue to get a decent amount of slime? Ever consider the genre you are reviewing before you make stupid statements Eric?
3:09 Eric says that the slime is toxic… despite being made out of Elmer’s glue (which is safe to eat) and starch (which can be treated with water and you know, actually watching your kids… also the dilution of starch by the glue makes it theoretically non-toxic… you eat starch every day you know? Pure starch is bad though). I would like to note that Eric has a point here in that kids are likely to attempt to eat the slime (theoretically safe isn’t the same as safe) and the video doesn’t tell you not to eat the slime (that’s lawsuit material).
3:41 Eric Gaede says that adding food colouring will make the kids more likely to eat it. Seriously Eric, I know your fat and shit and I don’t really like to make fun of people for their weight but how long are you going to go without mentioning that there is no warning on not eating the slime? Obviously this is for kids aged 4 or higher and the parent isn’t supposed to use it as food… THIS IS A CRAFT VIDEO NOT A COOKING SHOW.
4:05 Eric says that the slime isn’t something the kids want to play with. You suck Eric. The video shows the other girl not wanting to touch but you callously ignore the fact that they’re female (assuming the dumbass gender roles that media has set upon our kids) and the fact that other one is happily playing with the slime! Have you ever played with silly putty? What about Halloween decorations? What some dumbass kid is going to eat slime off the floor? This is accentuate the negative at its worst and it’s not funny.
4:28 Oh boy, Eric decides to take a look at the channel that produced this video, because personal harassment is A-OKAY! He argues that the channel has 3 subs therefore it sucks… because you know, your channel has less than 600 subs… clearly one view wonder is great show and gets many thumbs up from other assholes who are fine with unjustified bullying. He makes fun of several other shows without watching them because that would require research and effort.
5:05 Eric takes a look around his obviously modified and faked YouTube search and finds GTA videos and non-craft related videos. I say faked because I did use YouTube to search and set the filter to ‘today’ and I did not get random videos. My first page of results was nothing but crafts and craft related channels. Did you have to resort to lying again Eric? After a while of boring, Eric decides to watch a Russian paper crafts video… because the fact that its Russian won’t interfere with his ability to review it.
5:20 Eric asks what’s with the commercial music and then says a dumbass line about going to st.petersberg for paper cake… because being ignorant and not even attempting to check the video description is a just another sign that your Eric Gaede. Eric Gaede simply voices over the entire video.
Edit: He says St.Petersberg is soviet… because that’s humor even the Russians who changed the name of the city from leningrad to remove soviet connotations would find this tasteless joke extremely hilarious and worth giving the video a thumbs down over. Seriously what was the joke he was trying to make? Was he trying to make a satirical joke about how this is an advertisement? Well its not like it was telling you how to make the cake. Maybe Eric should stop faking his youtube searches and writing in “how to make paper crafts” before he complains about advertisement videos.
5:48 Eric advertises for Nisan. What’s the joke here? Making things up where they don’t exist? How can you make fun of people for being advertisements and cheap methods to sell product when you’ve done more advertising in this video than anyone ELSE?
5:59 the video ends and Eric goes to look at other videos and says that it sucks that the word crafts doesn’t show up on his obviously rigged and totally fucked up YouTube search. Eric… did your fat fingers result in you typing something other than crafts? I’m sorry but I can’t take this level of research failure, NO one else has this problem. You can blame Google for Google+ but you can’t bash Google for no reason other than you sucking at basic functions.
6:25 Eric Gaede says that library’s have gotten pathetic because they actually have to advertise… How low have you gotten Eric Gaede Mr. I have to advertise practically everything, be a hypocrite in every department, and get my gullible fans to give me free stuff!? Can you even do research? I highly doubt you did this video in one take, I mean there had to be editing, there had to be a Google search. Library’s are the location for a lot of advertisements, even McDonalds has used a library in ad before. It’s not a stretch to say the library itself will have commercial for it? How are people going to know they have a local library if someone doesn’t spread information about it? Library close and open all the time, my local library just finished construction. Heck Stephen King advertises for libraries http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFW0j2VNs60How does having an ad make someone or something pathetic? You’re the guy who is always advertising for another friend, this video you just advertised for your own product! You even advertised for a deadbeat re-pro cartridge producer who is literally bankrupt! Why isn’t this video over!?
6:35 The commercial says there is content and Eric says by content they mean lots of books… Have you even gone to library Eric? You really should have experience with the things you rant on. Content means having the important books not the books like mangas or ‘Robot commando’ but books that you know, are for education… the ones you don’t eat?
6:51 A bunch of quotes are shown and Eric says that the quotes are equal in cultural impact sarcastically. You do realize that those quotes come from entirely different time periods right Eric? Heck you don’t even note that he quote about paint isn’t a famous quote. Those words were probably revolutionary when paint was first domestically used, but it doesn’t change the fact that you only looked at two before commenting as the rest of the quotes are from fictional sources showing that the library has famous books. The first quote was history, the second was a painting guide, the third was from hunger games and the fourth was from ‘Where the Wild Things Are’.
7:07 Eric Gaede says “goddamn you for making us obsolete” implying that the internet has made library’s worthless. Because we don’t need hard-copies of important data or literature and there’s no such thing as an E-library. Fucking dumbass
7:17 Eric says he can’t understand why Libraries need a slogan… because it’s clear he doesn’t know what an advertisement needs and what’s involved in it. Go home Eric you’re drunk!
7:25 Eric poorly voices the library commercial and says “don’t make us beg, at least make out in our bathrooms or something, we miss people”. BATHROOMS!? GO OUTSIDE ERIC, VISIT THESE ‘LIBRARIES’ YOU DON’T SEEM TO KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT! Libraries are very busy places, you do realize they offer internet terminals right? He then complains that the commercial gives the libraries internet address and states that the commercial is ‘giving up’ because it’s not important for the viewer to know how to get more information about the product in the advertisement…. are you sure the guys are the Irate Gamer Sucks blog need to evolve? Because you don’t even seem to know what a commercial is let alone how to stay on topic.
7:46 The commercial ends and Eric says that there isn’t any crafts video on YouTube… IDIOT YOU HAVE THE SEARCH RESULTS INAPPROPRIATELY TAMPERED WITH.
9:18 A commercial appears with the lady from the video involving slime and Eric says that he feels dirty and the audience should too. For what? I don’t look at women and think, ohhh can’t wait to undress her and have sex! Hey wait a minute, his hand got stuck to the mouse when he first watched the video… He WAS making a masturbation joke! You masturbated to a lady and her kids ERIC THAT’S SICK! Again no comment on what’s wrong with the video he just labels it a desperate sex appeal video and says it sad when the promise of cleavage doesn’t bring people to your channel. Uh you’re not going to say anything about the fact the video was annoying and a blatant advertisement? What about Irate Gamer’s attempts to do the same thing when he used a girl as a misleading thumbnail (his hunger games review)? Because that was the time to say it. He says the video ranks 5th in the all time popularity a another sign he didn’t do the fucking research since its actually way lower than that with the McCutcheon & Hamner, P.C. Attorneys at Law video being the highest ranking video on the channel. The Macaraindeer parody is ranked 9th. There’s no way this could change in 2 days so it’s clear there’s something very wrong with Eric’s computer or internet.
And then the video ends with nothing really important being noted aside from the channel being racist. I would agree that channel and its content is pretty shit but based on Eric’s review on it I wouldn’t be able to. What’s the point of these videos if you don’t provide appropriate commentary or criticisms? This is more like a Vlog than a review or a commentary. The title of the series doesn’t even make any sense. It’s ‘one view wonder’ so where’s the one view, and where’s the wonder? These videos have more than one view, with some of them exceeding 50k and the franchise looks like it will continue its non-fruitful existence. Saying something is a one hit wonder is a good and bad thing, it’s meant to denote that that the material is high quality but due to external circumstances, more material like it will not be made. Calling something a one view wonder… would mean that the video can only be seen once? I don’t get it.
Great Job Eric, you’ve successfully confused your opponents. We have no question to how stupid you are but we are confused as to how much stupid and recklessness you can display.
Big edit: Third place winner: Eric Gaede aka Asalieri says that he does not hide behind anonymity. Given that this article does not list his name at all, he actually told me to go post his name here since only true trolls hide behind anonymity. So to demonstrate that Asalieri is not a true troll (you know the ones that are funny and don’t hurt people) I am showing that he is not anonymous. Also I wrote his name wrong in the original edit. It has been fixed.
Yet for some reason, despite being told the same thing over and over again. Asalieri (and his current account Asalieri 2) doesn’t seem to get the message.
But first a message from my partner Batdanielsucks (who is also undercover).
He just wanted me to post these images just in case Chris Bores decides to block him. I don’t know exactly why he wants to keep talking to them but considering that this is his blog I’m not argue with what he’s doing.
Back to Asalieri:
There’s a fine line between being an activist who supports freedom of speech and then there’s just plain being a douchebag. Asalieri has severe issues with behaving as a source of entertainment, often times mixing up the role of being a caustic critic with that of being an sociopathic jerk.
For those who don’t know Asalieri, he’s a guy who runs a youtube series where he makes fun of reviewers who do poor jobs or lack professionalism. There’s nothing wrong or boring with this concept. The concept may seem to be full of flamebait or as a weak excuse to troll people but that’s only if its done poorly. For an example of this concept being done correctly, take a look at retsupurae, these guys make fun of people who do poor let’s play videos and riff on people who lack gaming skills, editing skills and they try to avoid personal insults. They demonstrate morality and humility as they try to balance their overzealous fanbase with production of episodes; taking care not to encourage flamewars while at the same time minimizing the anger from the people they make fun of. They have gotten both thanks and angry letters from the people they have made fun of and avoid targeting children or obvious trolls. Needless to say their job is hard (especially since some of them run their own LPs) and of course it takes a lot of conscious effort to prevent rampant flamewars. You can see that they do it for fun and to help people and not for petty reasons (http://www.formspring.me/effinslowbeef/q/199049491733575010).
“But laser squad this article is supposed to be about Asalieri!”
The point of above paragraph can be summarized in one line: Asalieri’s placement on the dumbass list isn’t because of his occupation. Asalieri did not end up on this list because he made fun of popular people. Asalieri did not end up on this list because of his negative stance towards Kickstarter projects. I believe that Asalieri could easily do his Job with none of the flame wars and constant trolling that he has become synonymous for. Archfiend constantly gets compared to Asalieri be he won’t even be on this list because unlike Asalieri there’s something that Archfiend demonstrates that Asalieri doesn’t, RESPONSIBILITY.
Take a look here where Archfiend says he fucked up (paraphrasing of course) but tries to keep his facade. This isn’t the first time Archfiend has done a video like this either. One video even has him calling out his fanbase for sending death threats to a 10 year old. Asalieri has to this date, done nothing to tell his fanbase to not troll people.
The things I look for when deciding the order of this list is three things: Talent, Integrity, Responsibility. Talent is easily the most subjective but I assume that unless he is constantly making mistakes that he has talent. Integrity is how well the person tries to be an amicable person and whether or not they compromise their stated beliefs from video to video (or statement to statement). Responsibility is whether or not this individual puts effort into what they do and take the time to ensure that every action they take has minimal consequences. You can already guess that Chris Bores and Joe Haldnik have failed miserably across the chart but what about Asalieri?
Talent: Asaleri’s RAR show is about reviewing a reviewer and is not to be confused with a compressed file format. But a lot of the time Asalieri just plain fails to review the reviewer. He makes no attempt to understand the standards of which the reviewer is reviewing the content. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfrt39e-b5w
At 5:46 he says that since Doug Walker isn’t reviewing a movie he watched as a kid, it violates the premise of his show. I am going to avoid writing the words facepalm here since Asalieri then says that the evidence of this violation is in the quote of the show which is “I remember it so you don’t have to”. The point of nostalgic critic is to review movies that the audience may have watched and even then its I as in the character, Nostalgic Critic, not Doug Walker. Even then Asalieri’s statement about the show makes no sense since the show always acts as if Nostalgic Critic is surprised by what he sees which wouldn’t be possible if he knew/remembered that they were going to happen. The show has always been about being comedic and Doug Walker has even stated that when asked about the Thomas the tank engine review. Asalieri is essentially taking Doug Walker’s overly apologetic commentary on his past work and using to say “hey look, his work is going downhill”. This is garbage and its clear that Asalieri is lying to you when he says he has nothing against Doug Walker or TGWTG. If that’s the case, then why are you misquoting him and missing the point of the show entirely Asalieri? BONUS POINTS FOR SAYING YOU STOPPED WATCHING HIM. Way to show everyone you wanted to be credible there. It’s no wonder you have 1/5 of Archfiend’s # of subscribers.
This isn’t even the first time he fucked up. Take a look at his (currently) front page video.
He even fails to critique Irate Gamer complaining that the line “Some people see it as a cult classic by some and a bad game by others) can be applied to everything. UH NO IT CAN’T be applied to everything, even his later attempt to apply it to puking is pretty far fetched. There are things that are well liked and things that are love it or hate it and some that are always bad. I can’t believe there’s someone who can’t properly point out the flaws in Chris’s work such as the real counterpoint that monster party is not a love it or hate it game. He then says “this is a review, you are supposed to be telling us about how you feel about this product, that’s how a review works”. Wow get a load of Asalieri, watch him not even know what the real definition of a review is, how it works or even demonstrate patience for the medium he is reviewing. I feel the need to point out that he is the guy who has never made a review and demonstrates every sign of not knowing the difficulties involved in making a review but if you haven’t realized that from his comments and failure to properly critique Bores then you’re not actively thinking.
I was actually planning on talking about his mistakes in his linkara RAR but quite frankly I’ve written enough and just letting people know that comic books are a visual medium is enough to debunk his stupid complaints about Linkara. Even though its some other guy named Sam, the fact that Asalieri supports what Sam said shows that it is essentially his own words. Sam’s translation of what Linkara said is just plain dumb. It was pure quote mining for Sam to say linkara was ebegging and it was just plain stupid since Linkara was asking for offers, not handouts. The video is just plain full of fail and none of his complains about Linkara actually worked. Love how Sam tries to say that Linkara’s intro is horrible and… you know what? the RAR failed at every possible level and to avoid making this article even longer than it already is I’m just gonna give Asalieri his grade.
Talent Grade: UTTER FAILURE
Integerity: Asalieri consistently fails to state why he does his work and when he says something he quickly goes back on his word. For those unfamiliar with how often Asalieri flip flops, I’ll give you one major example that’s relevant to Irate Gamer. Asalieri when he first started his RAR show, he made videos entirely about Irate Gamer. I’m not gonna bother critiquing those because we’ll be here all day. Hell the video I just linked to also makes fun of Chris Bores and at some point during the video Asalieri states that Irate Gamer has always had trouble writing scripts, acting and should try using deodorant (see what I mean about personal insults?). But then a mere 8 months after that video, Chris Bores would make the E-begging spoof. After that Asalieri said that he would never make fun of Chris Bores again, that his writing was perfect and started his spree of deleting comments and blocking people who called him out on his hypocrisy. Then he began his stupid ass crusade on the Irate Gamer sucks Blog (he actually did one before he called Chris a cool guy, but that was for reasons I don’t know about) where he would take the comments that people wrote there and take them completely out of context. Asalieri also stated that Irate Gamer as a topic was off limits and that people should stop talking about him while still uploading RAR videos on him. His justification? It was a job that needed to be done.
I’d also like to point out that has also made friends only to ditch them when it was convenient. He did this to gameboob when gameboob stated that hellsing’s bullshit statement that catwomen, howard the duck and other such movies of that quality are better than big budget films like The darkknight and Superman returns. Asalieri decided to back up hellsing despite the fact that Gameboob has done way more for Asalieri then Hellsing has ever done. This of course meant that Asalieri had to accept the delusional reasoning that movies that no one outside of remote individuals even liked are better than major blockbuster films that were highly liked by both critics and audiences. Bad films didn’t get a sequel for a reason, they had poor production values and people just didn’t want to watch it.
Integrity Grade: COMPLETE FAILURE, Chris Bores has more integrity than you. You can’t spell Asalieri without LIE
Responsibility: Man this article is a doozy. But hey when you’ve talking about a real idiot you can’t be too thorough. But you can already correctly guess that Asalieri fails here too. His fanbase are almost completely trolls. The fact that Asalieri consistently blocks and deletes the comments of people who try to bring logic and understanding to his comment section only shows how pathetic and hate driven he is. Asalieri consistently fails to do the necessary research and often times just twists facts or makes nonsensical statements. He hates that TGWTG banned him from the forums (and there are plenty of people who attest to him attempting to apply for a job there) and makes no attempt to hide that fact. Just take a look at his ED page and the appropriate TGWTG section…
I will say this right here and now. Asalieri would be ranked #1 on this list if this blog wasn’t about exposing Irate Gamer. Asalieri makes absolutely no attempt to avoid starting a flame war and shows no attempt to control his own ego and sadistic tendencies. He surrounds himself with more YES MEN then Irate Gamer has managed to do and gets his facts wrong more often than Chris Bores manages to do. Asalieri consistently rants only about topics that bother him at a personal level and has made no attempts to actually be a nice person. Asalieri fails to be a responsible Cybercitizen, fails to be a critic and FAILS TO CREATE ANYTHING OTHER THAN A PERSONALITY CULT WORSE THAN WHAT IRATE GAMER HAS MADE.
I like the colors used in that blog more. Also, hot damn, It makes me wanna read it.

Yup, Asalieri doesn’t give a shit about people writing random hate about people, just as long as its about people he doesn’t like. Also note that he doesn’t actually bother reading things because it takes too much effort for him to cause E-drama. Do note that the material I sent him was the kinda stuff he used in his “A fanboy’s world” video. But of course he won’t do a video on that stuff because it didn’t affect him at a personal level.
Agh I need asprin.
Edit After taking my asprin I noticed that I made several grammar and possibly spelling mistakes. Please point them out in comment box if I haven’t fixed them already
The problem with writing an article on Asalieri is that all his fans practice doublethink and Asalieri is no stranger to the delete button. He consistently plays the victim card even when he’s the one who got himself into trouble to begin with. Just because you are losing does not make you the victim. This is doubly hypocritical since Asalieri and his fanbase’s arguments always boil down to ‘I’m better than you, therefore you’re wrong’. You can always tell if they’re subscribed to Asa’s dogma if they’re argument consists of stating that their opposition is a loser who doesn’t fit into society.
This is mob mentality. The reason why Asalieri lost his account was because he inspired this mentality because of his poor and irresponsible antics. Batdamn is also very close friends with Asalieri which explains a lot.
For those of you who couldn’t be bothered to click the link here’s a quoted summary
“I made one video that had absolutely nothing to do with Asalieri that disagreed with Roo of 16 Bit Gems on a matter that is important for the future of videogame journalism. Asalieri is supposedly the best friend in the world with Roo, so Asalieri decided to not just make five videos intended to slander and harass me, but encouraged his subscribers to do so as well.
For a month!
Asalieri then lost his account when, after ignoring my warnings to stop, he lost his account due to multiple DMCA and community guideline violations.
I didn’t take your account Asa. Youtube took your account because they looked at the reports and agreed you were breaking the site’s user agreement.
You believed you could say and do whatever you liked and nothing would happen. You were wrong. At this point, that’s really what it’s about, isn’t it?
You can’t handle being wrong. You have to blame me, Youtube, TGWTG and anyone else who tells you that you can’t say and do whatever you like without any negative consequences.
You broke the rules of the websites you joined. That is on you and nobody else.
You picked a fight you couldn’t win. That is what is actually ticking you off.”
Things that are notable but I’m not gonna go into in detail:
1. Asalieri constantly states that his opposition has social disorders such as unhealthy obsessions. This is the man who went down to TGWTG member Spoony’s home address to dig up dirt on him by asking his neighbors if they know anything bad about him.
2. Is consistently angry that TGWTG got nominated for every category in an awards contest which is decided by fans anyway. So they have a bigger and more active fanbase, good luck trying to dispute that fact. Twilight won craptons of awards but again this is a contest about crowds and not about quality.
3. Asalieri is the one who came up with youtube whoring. On the website I posted he is the guy who came up with the copyright infringement idea of posting other people’s videos so that people will watch those with the ad money going to someone else rather than to the rightful owner. He later complained when he got his account pwned for being an asshole
4. Asalieri’s constant complaints about people having internet jobs and that people should provide their content for free. This is the guy who constantly attempts to apply to money earning websites such as reviewtopia and TGWTGbecause he wants to make money doing online reviews.
5. All of his vocal fans are crazy. Many of them practice (inadvertently, which makes it even scarier) double think and fail to properly reflect on their own actions before its too late. Just take a look at unfortunate’s comments here
Right off the bat he decides that he will call everyone on the Irate Gamer Sucks blog (using a top 5 list because you know mimicking what someone else just said doesn’t make you look unskilled and talentless)
5. Obsessed with Irate Gamer (oh wow big shock, I can’t even believe people complain about people talking about the subject of the blog when that IS the subject of the blog. What’s next people gonna complain about firestations having firetrucks and firemen in it? I’m sorry were you expecting people to talk about the economic crisis in Greece?)
4. Being AVGN fanboys (yeah good luck trying to get anyone on the IG sucks blog to say that AVGN is perfect. THEY HAVE LAUGHED AT PEOPLE WHO SAY AVGN’S WORK IS PERFECT)
3. Are butthurt and will prove it by replying back (because that’s how you start a conversation or solidify your argument right? just say that anyone who knows more than you is jealous and stupid. Democracy and free speech are joke when its applied to anyone other than yourself right?)
2. Repeat of 3 but this time just adding more ducttape to the already sinking argument unfortunate is trying to bring to the table
1. A really stupid complaint that the IG sucks blog are still angry at something for 5 years. (Yeah what a correlation buddy! Something existing for 5 years and going and someone hating it for 5 years and going) Also Unfortunate proves he’s been eating too much Asalieri propaganda by saying that the Ig sucks blog guys spend too much time defending AVGN, TGWTG and other people Asalieri has targeted.
The speech goes on for quite sometime with Mr.KILL ultra introducing counter-arguements such as the fact that you can’t immediately demand changes to people you don’t even know unless you’re an ethnocentric asshole who can’t stand people doing things that didn’t bother you until you heard about from some fat guy two hours ago. Unfortunate does the heroic thing of repeating his argument and then stating that Mr.KILL did not use the word ethnocentric correctly and then goes on to prove that Mr.Kill did in fact use the word ethnocentric correctly.
Now let’s take a look at the Asalieri Fanboy philosophy:
“Let me educate you on how the real world works:
In many cases, yes, being respectful can get you change. Being respectful is wonderful and people may listen to you.
However, in many other places voicing your concern respectfully will get you ignored because of the many people who will tell the person you are trying to criticize that you are wrong and everything they do is roses, for an example look at the Forums of TGWTG or TV Tropes where being respectful will get you ignored. Therefore, sometimes more drastic and harsher measures are used when you want your voice heard. Do you think that Upton Sinclair was Respectful when he described disgusting work conditions of meat packing plats in the Early 20th Century? No, he was trying to make a point and get people to listen. In many cases that is how people like me feel. We have tried to be respectful and are constantly ignored. Now we are loud.” -unfortunate
Except he didn’t point that being loud does not equal jackcrap in terms of getting things done and in the end, things only change when people agree to make changes. I shouldn’t even have to mention the current crisis that is going in Arab nations right now because of the war on terror most of which have ensured that radical violent groups will dominate the culture for years to come. Being loud causes panic, panic forces change, but not necessarily good ones. Be patient, think things through and things will solve themselves. I did not manage to get the IP address of Irate Gamer and his biggest thugs by being a loud obnoxious fool. I had to play my part and do the real work quietly.
So great you’re loud, obnoxious, probably violent and almost have certainly offended lots of people. SO WHEN DOES THE CHANGE HAPPEN? The slaves in U.S didn’t get to become free people because they pushed and shoved and rioted. They had peaceful picket signs and quietly convinced people that they needed to fight the bigotry. The KKK were loud brash and violent, they tried to hang as many of them as they could. They got police to try and run down the peaceful protests, they tried to bribe officials and tried to kill important political figures. The KKK LOST, MISERABLY.
When you commit violence, when you harass someone in the name of an ideal. You show to everyone that you suck and not just that but that your ideals suck too
To Asalieri’s Fans: You ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING GOOD. By harassing people you are only showing that anonymity hurts the internet more than it protects it. You are not activists, you have not made any important changes and you gladly accept lies over the truth. You are the very reason that corporate America is winning its bid to remove anonymity from the internet. And just to remind you Mr.18.104.22.168 anonymity does not mean freedom to harass. It is not a shield to protect your criminal actions. You will lose your account, and when you make it a new one, its only a matter of time till you lose that one too.
The other thing I didn’t mention
6. Asalieri really has it out for AVGN. Given that all the things Asalieri rants about are either targets he thinks are easy or have affected him at a personal level. I can only wonder why he hates AVGN so much. Its probably because AVGN actually has (MANY) fans who are willing to trust him with money (however small the amount may be) to fund his own personal dream (AVGN has mentioned that he has always aspired to make a movie). This obsessive hatred for the movie got to the point that he leaps at any chance to insult AVGN. This blew up in his face massively when he decided that IMDB listing the budget for the movie as 200k as definite proof for embezzlement. IMDB is the wikipedia of movies.Now this creates two theories:
A) Asalieri created that bit of evidence showing just how totally desperate and how much of a loser he really is to the point that he has to make stuff up to insult an enemy leagues above his talent.
B) Asalieri is that Irresponsible to accept information that was easily faked from a website that has the edit button in clear view.
It should be noted that he called all the people who pointed this out as butthurt AVGN fanboys. In either case, Asalieri shows severe anti-social and Obsessive compulsive need to show hatred at a public level. I really feel sorry for his family since he is constantly showing them (his baby was in his avatar and his daughter has been filmed several times) and the timing and manner at which he presents his family is almost as if he wants to endanger them and make them a target. This seems likely since if his family gets hurt, Asalieri can almost certainly sue and this manner of irresponsible endangerment is commonly used in hate groups such as the WestBoro Baptist Church. Its highly likely that Asalieri is being irresponsible on purpose to make money off of civil lawsuits. I don’t his plan has succeeded though since most people he offends forget him about after two months (or two weeks) and his attention deficit disorder concerning targets leaves him unable to properly insult or garner the full attention of the people he attacks.
Even Linkara originally thought Archfiend was the real person attacking him and not Asalieri since Asalieri is just not a credible threat (moronic double thinking fans only get you so far). This might explain why Asalieri has been stepping up his irresponsible behavior and making more and more personal and un-researched arguments against people.
Edit 2: After a brief comment conversation in this article to someone who knew what the first attack on the Irate Gamer sucks blog was about. It appears that it is once again, Asalieri faking evidence and creating his own reasons to attack individuals who have nothing to do with him. Heck given how he completely fails to make fun of Irate Gamer (he even makes the mistake of thinking that people only talk about his plagarism, because you know, the Irate Gamer sucks blog hasn’t been mentioning other things for years now) its almost as if he always secretly liked the Irate Gamer. Its probably because he sees Chris Bores as role model since he is talentless but has a lot of subscribers (yet almost no where near the amount of views). Asalieri has very little subscribers and is also talentless. So they’re probably exchanging tips here and there.
Edit it appears that either Asalieri is using a different computer or has called a sockpuppet here as Eric Gaede has an IP address of 22.214.171.124
Yes eric, do continue to use strawman arguments and show your complete lack of debate skills.
One final note: Asalieri has came to comment on the post and is viewable below. If you ever wish to argue like Asalieri then do the following.
1. Insult people and pretend to leave
2. Get caught insulting authors and blog readers and say you are the victim of all this. Insinuate that Author has personal vendetta against him despite being ranked 3rd on this list
3. Insinuate that evidence in article is wrong by not posting any counter evidence. Focus on very small details in the article and not the overall theme or the major evidence presented.
4. Say you have a story to tell and that the author is being unfair by not letting you say it. When prompted to tell your damn story already you don’t tell one and ask the author to prompt you so you can tell a story. Demonstrate that the only reason you came to blog was to gloat about being better than the author and to say that they misrepresented you because the picture given of you actually points out your irresponsible antics and questionable ethics. Still continue to not provide evidence that you are being misrepresented and lie blatantly several times just to make sure the author can’t trust you at all.
5. Make typos to look like author is editing your comments and insinuate that the author is editing your comments
6. Insinuate that you are innocent and did not insult anyone. Claim freedom of speech (which claims that you can be held liable for what you say and what it results in) despite it not covering important actions such as libel and slander. Say you leave and then make another jab at your lack of anonymity because you are not aware that the author is laughing at your pathetic ability to keep your internet life away from your regular life and that the point of his operation was to take away your anonymity. You are now even more screwed since you gave away your IP address.
Bonus objective: Change the subject as often as possible even if you only have like 3 things to talk about. Talk about how you are the victim and have been unfairly misrepresented (because you know, you’ve done a lot of good things like targeting honest hard working people at TGWTG and not actually managing to make fun of Irate Gamer), switch to your feud about TGWTG, then to the Death threats and sabotage and then back to being a victim despite having your argument thoroughly picked apart in each topic. To win a debate you must come prepared and not overly confident or loaded with arguments that a filled with bigotry and self-importance. Demonstrate that you are above the art of debate by not showing you have done any research and that you don’t even know the various things that people documented you doing. Conform to the very things the author said you would do and still act like you are innocent proving that you are the very irresponsible, talentless and morally loose character he said you were.
Also to end this on a non-offensive joke. Here’s the views we got from countries today:
United states 472
Significance: The trolling antics of individuals have far reaching effects. Also, a lot of people can read English despite not being in a predominately English culture.
