    I mean a gimmicky 'wild' thing that's different is fun once in a while but when it drags on like it has, people are gonna be put off and they're not wrong to feel that way.

    In some ways it might better for the Grumps to say "some things came up, we have a couple of episodes but there's gonna be a few days without anything." It keeps them from having to force out ideas / episodes but also keeps things honest.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    Idk expecting them to churn out exactly the same kind of content in the same format, every week, from now until the tidal waves inevitably take us all out... is pretty bogus

    There's not much to be gained from bending over backwards to please the internet hate mob, all it does is embolden them to act shitty all the time to get their way. People go on R/Gamegrumps and cry "wow this makes me wanna unsub" then just do it then. No one is forcing you to watch it.

    Arin's been pretty up front about how he does really care what people think and wants to make everyone happy, but at a certain point he can't please everyone, and he really should have the freedom to make the kind of stuff he wants to. Everyone on these sites criticizing him for not adhering to their every whimsy and demand, despite being pretty toxic (or at the least extremely melodramatic) and displaying behaviors that should really just be ignored.

    Keep in mind all the changes in programming allow them to do other projects and, also a lot of them are in reaction to YouTube's ever fucked algorithm, which I'm sure tears away valuable viewers to a million other creators that make similar content.

    I mean, I would assume like other episodes that they recorded all these Arin characters all at once before uploading them. So they are kind of committed to showing however many they had planned, before they had a chance to react to opinions.

    Though I absolutely do not agree with the idea of just not putting up anything. If you in particular do not like it, you can just not watch. Not putting up anything at all because some people do not like it is just screwing over those that do. Nothing stops someone from just not watching. You can pretend there is nothing until they go back to normal, but people who like it can’t pretend there is something if they stopped uploading because of some opinions.

    I find franklin entertaining btw.

    I mean are the videos even grump related? If not Arin does have his own channel that I follow. He could have put them up there... But it's likely that they needed a break (which is fine) and so they uploaded it to GG. I dunno... I'm just going to skip the videos. There are very few Arin voices that I enjoy.

    I would have preferred they use the break to clean up their episode playlists and maybe re-upload some favorites.

    People would have bitched about that too, but fuck those people, I don't care about them, they're not me.

    Just give the fans what they want

    Recordings of Arin's bare feet on studio carpet, and maybe you can hear a game being played in the distance.

    Channels pretty much need to keep to a regular schedule or they'll lose their audience quickly. Even one as big as the grumps. They've committed to a daily thing so dropping from that will hurt them. It sucks but that's youtube- a miserable pile of sadness garbage.

    I just kinda wish they had had something else in the hopper for this too, instead of two silly voice episodes a day.

    It's not bogus. Every TV show has a particular kind of writing style / format to it, and maybe sometimes that style will be broken for an episode or so but it is done so for 1) just the one episode and 2) in a way the audience will fully understand and get the joke of. If this had happened on a single day and then things went back to normal, then whatever. But it's gone on for almost a week and it's just annoying. The joke has worn thin.

    Though having to write all that just now makes it sound like a zomghugedeal. It isn't, I'm just keeping an eye on when regular episodes come back and my life isn't affected one bit. But this is the Game Grumps thread where we talk about Game Grumps so :P

    Edit - Oh and Sonic Adventure is back.

    I figured it was obvious these Arin only vids were because dan had something to do and they either weren’t able to / forgot to record ahead of time to cover.

    I don’t think recording like 1.5 hours of Arin doing voices would be enough to prevent them from organizing the channel. It likely is just that no one wants to.

  • Local H JayLocal H Jay Registered User regular
    I wasn't specifically talking about here, everyone is pretty chill on the forums. It's Reddit and Twitter that's a trash fire that should be abandoned.

    It's fine to provide criticism, it's another entirely to essentially harass your "favorite" creators and heckle them for making some content you don't vibe with. Thats the problem with the always hyperbolic dialogue the internet pushes forward.

    Idk I think the average person doesn't realize how much Arin does running his company and all the projects under the Grump banner. It's a lot of pressure and scheduling conflicts and general just.. life getting in the way I'm sure, but people lack empathy or at the very least turn a blind eye to that side of things. They don't care about production snafus or touring around the country, they just want their free daily entertainment.



    Just gonna toss that in there for context

    Oh my God they are going to get Ben Schwartz up on GameGrumps... well hopefully. He's the guy who played Jean-Ralphio from Parks and Rec. Does a ton of voicework now.

    I was trying to find a good Parks and Rec clip to show of him but found this instead. This is hardly a display of his character in it.

    Jesus that was hilarious and awful at the same time. They were talking about character work in comedy briefly, especially when it comes to saying / doing terrible things, and Danny throws out, " 'Build the wall!', says character."

    Spoiler Owl is definitely in there at least once, holding an MCU spoiler that I at first thought was an Endgame spoiler until I realized it made no sense in that context.

    But for a brief moment, I was super pissed. :lol:

    There's a specific bit that's stuck in my head at the moment but I can't remember what game it was from. Arin was doing an old lady voice talking about being very allergic to cheese and it sorta caps off with him saying, "Guess what; having the alfredo~"

    Is it? I just remember his voice being really silly and I loved it. "And I'm VERY allergic~"
