  1. What was that other old gaming "review" channel that was a parody of hardcore gamer sterotypes? I remember it being like hard core gamers or something, and they always ended off reviews with the stage win sound from Cadilacs and Dinosaurs.

  2. Even if they aren’t allowed to riff on let’s play videos anymore I still enjoyed them watching old obscure adventure games and laughing at them. Beef also got kinda pozzed though. I looked at his channel once and he and some SJW friends were commenting on Steins Gate and they wouldn’t stop talking about how problematic it was.

    • it was really depressing seeing edgy internet personalities hit 30 and panic about being seen as a good guy on their deathbed

      especially when in 99% of cases its so transparently forced. they cant bully people for fun anymore so they bully conservative talking points and pretend everything is better now as a coping mechanism. like when the SA crew did a retsupurae where they watched pewdiepie and got offended and thought they were seriously owning him epic style.

      like how hbomberguy was involved in one of the most infamous trolling networks, which pushed people to suicide. then he felt the wind blow in another direction and now hes the worlds biggest homosexual

      trolls remorse. you hate to see it.

      • It’s not just that. SA didn’t "become pozzed", it’s the originator of this behaviour because once they started letting people have actual political discourse beyond
        >lol Bush needs 9/11 explained to him with legos lolololol
        then it became another bullying pursuit, except with a thousand times the vigor since making someone kill themselves was considered a virtue it’s an icky harmful right-winger.

    • As a president, or as a person? He was immediately pre- and proceeded in office by the Reagan and the Bushes so he manages to compare favourably by virtue of not fucking things up. Definitely, definitely one of Epstein’s inner circle though, unambiguously.

  3. I remember one of the earlier Retsupuraes riffing on the guy for recording his face and having it in the corner of the video. This was back in like 2008/2009. Funny how things changed.

  4. It was always interesting to me, that Clinton himself was always (and still is to a degree) considered as a symbol of "freedom" and good prosperous years, here in Eastern Europe. No clue why, probably because all of that 90s cultural stuff brought here after Soviet Union went. Boomers here usually think Baywatch, Michael Jackson, Miami Beach and Clinton in one sentence.
    And then you compare it with how Americans themselves view him.

    • After 2 senile retards, a black guy, and the guy that did 9/11 the time when the most scandalous thing going on was a dude getting a blowjob and lying about it seems better in hindsight.

      • bill clinton is a rapist and a murderer who would sell every american soul for clout, money, and his own epstein island

        but he was president during americas golden years. through correlation alone he’ll be remembered fondly

  5. I liked it when they made fun of shitty let’s plays. The long play shit was trash with a few gems.
    I also hate this weird revision shit happening in old internet personalities when they’re all "Hahaha what a fucking idiot. Hey guys don’t be mean to them. We’re laughing with them"
    No you weren’t and that’s okay.
    The only reason it’s a problem now is because being "big" back then meant a few thousand subscribers and now everyone treats their online persona as irreplaceable, if they use a persona at all.
    We should go back to screen names for everything and it being different every website was the norm. Maybe then people wouldn’t take all this crap so seriously

  6. In a way, it was kind of inevitable that they’d stop doing retsupurae eventually. Nobody really has to point a camcorder at the TV screen anymore with dedicated streaming tools and consoles have it built in. And there’s only so many times you can make fun of some lanky tweener with a nasally voice before it gets old.

  7. Anyone remember the videos they did on BillyMC? Supposedly it was all in good nature, but I don’t know… they always rubbed me the wrong way. Especially considering it’s painfully obvious that Billy himself is on the autistic spectrum.

    • I feel that way about the Electical Beast video. It’s a funny video they dredged up, but their own commentary basically amounts to bullying a retard. I like him more than I like them, at the end of the day.

    • The later vids they did on him were a riot, they obviously caught onto the fact that Billy was acting in complete earnest and enjoyed doing what he was doing so they reeled it back.

      The LimePopsicle and BillyMC vids they did are still among my favorite pieces of content on Youtube to this day.

  8. >No new retsupurae content in over 4 years
    I mean, I get Slowbeef’s got a family now so it can’t really be helped, but I still miss them.

    • The internet is different now that people stream their gaming and riffing on other videos like they did isn’t as acceptable as it once was.

        That’s the backbone of twitch the last year. The difference is you can’t just dredge up some nobody and go "LMAO THIS AUTISTIC RETARD SHOULD HANG HIMSELF", you have to ”react” to something that people have already seen on youtube- MMO players with that "WOW players on FFXIV" animation, for example- so you can have a clip of yourself doing the pogface to upload so that your fans know you validate it.

  9. I stopped watching Retsuprae after they started the podcast.

    For those who are curious, nobody wants to listen to your podcast.
