Who was in the wrong?
I will never not cringe at the dude on the left because he's voiced by a youtuber that I feel embarrassed about watching and liking when I was younger.
He made decent vids, but other people came around and did his internet mystery stuff better. I saw him livestream a few months ago to fundraise for some family member, and nobody was watching
>Highest videos used topped out at a million 10 years ago
>Now in the 5k-10k range
Twitch put a huge dent in the Youtube video games market.
Hey, I remember that guy and his funny emo hair. His bullshit creepypasta videos were good. It's been a pretty long time...
I really like his dry humor when he reads bad creepypastas
But I was never a big fan of his other content
his voice suits rory at least
I still like him and I'm not ashamed because I'm not a gay
I just hope he got a nice paycheck out of this
Yuriofwind has the worst fucking voice I've ever heard, why would anyone hire him to VA
There's a whole in the market for the monotone nasally autism voice.
Give Yuri a break, a lot of his stuff was really good back in the day and I still sometimes go back to some of it. Still waiting for that Half-Life 3 video he promised..
alex was absolutely on the right fuck rory for dragging everyone into a shitter for fuck all
Yeah, Alex was right for once, but he went around it the wrong way.
alex should have blown up on him far earlier
It's so obvious that the guy on the left was drawn to be wearing a hoodie until 5 minutes before the game launched when they turned it into hair.
and the guy on the right was initially drawn as a man
Holy shit I never noticed
but he does wear a hoodie in promo art, over the hair
chris is never going to finish the yiik finale video is he?
Yeah what a lazy fucking cunt honestly. Imagine your only job being to play video games and upload them and you still manage to fuck it up
It'll be out when it's out!
Why is it taking him an entire year to edit a 20+ minute video??
he got Alex's voice actor to do something special for it
That's why you have the Running Shine video instead.
literal reddit artstyle why do people say this game is better then omori?
Omori's anime artstyle triggers people, I'm serious. If Omori was exactly the same but had a tumblr art style those haters would be fine.
>posts literal twitter artstyle
>this game is so reddit
>recommends the uwu chud grimdark game
because week-old dog shit is better than omori
CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON!?!?!?
Nobody cares about her cringe dead sister.
Not even her mom & obviously not even him.
All his over the top bullshit is just a way of coping for not caring when she was alive.
that's a lass?
I hope we can give the nu-golden alpaca lemonade which turns him back into his old self.
now kissy kissy
FAT RACEMIXED VELLA TITS
Rory, yeah Alex is a dick for bringing her up, but Rory almost got everyone killed knowing the entity wasn't his sister
rori, he baited them into a dangerous situation with bullshit. indefensible.
Alex is a massive asshole though so even if he's right you still hate him.
>Rory almost got everyone killed knowing the entity wasn't his sister
>he actually believes Alex's side of the story
The entire Golden Alpaca thing was Alex altering the context of what happened to make it seem like Rory put them in danger and Alex was justified for scolding him. It's literally just some bullshit Alex came up with and the revised scene makes this clearer when reality shifts to position Alex as the hero.
I can't take this kusoge seriously because the main character sounds like he's been inhaling helium
Who cares? Dimwit tier writing that nobody is gonna remember.
ummm... it's actually becoming something of a cult classic
So was the room, but nobody will claim it wasn't written by a grade-a moron.
>Game takes place in 1999
>Y2K is literally the fucking name of the game
>Barely gets brought up
The enemies should have been computers, arcades or even computer bugs instead of cartoon shit like literal shit and zombie boxers
the white male
GUYS I JUST MET A BLACK PERSON
IN FACT I MET TWO OF THEM
i wonder if the reason chondra and the other guy even exist is because the devs were scared about getting cancelled.
Probably it, they're redundant as fuck they should have only included Claudio, at least he isn't a total charisma vacumm like Rory
Claudio is the only likable character in the cast.
Claudio seems like he was planned, black weeb samurai is something I'd expect in a game like this
He clearly had no idea what to do with Chondra and I'm guessing she was a last minute thing to have more girls and blacks, she only exists to complain about whypipo once
don't worry POCs! we here at ackk studios are GOOD white people
I highly doubt it considering Alex's blatant yellow fever.
Adding in a couple of blacks wouldn't save him.
Alex was right. Everyone got mad because he wasn't Le Sensitive, but fuck that. They almost got LEMONADED.com.
Rory is completely in the fault. If they really wanted Alex to cool off, Vella should've given him a handjob on the spot.
i don't know what this gay shit is and i don't care
what did you guys have for lunch. i had like a dozen boiled eggs
Did you eat them all?
of course i did. what do you take me for
Good, I just wanted to make sure you were ok
half a pizza and some banana bread
You know there is such a thing as caloric poisoning. It usually happens to people who eat a fuckton of eggs.
Also there's protein overdosing too, for the meat lovers in the audience.
i would welcome a death by eggs with a smile on my face
yeah, you'd know all about "protein" overdosing mr. "meat lover".
>first thing he thinks of is big dick and putting it up his ass
You little queer.
You would have to eat more meat than your stomach can handle for protein to start turning into sugar
turkey sandwich and pretzels
what kinda pretzels. i like the big ones with mustard. or pretzel pieces
just pretzel sticks
Double quarter pounder no cheese
Not a single one of you actually played this game. You just watched Oneyplays. I did, too, but don't pretend.
>You just watched Oneyplays.
I watched Running Shine, as did a lot of other anons here I'm sure.
no I watched the Running Shine video wannawatchmejerkoff?
I watched running shine and I put it on every now and then for a reminder on why making your protagonist unlikeable intentionally is a gamble.
my fucking Black folks
I think the best route for making an unlikable character likable is making them entertaining to watch be a piece of shit
Take Carl for example, he's a huge sack of shit but he's the best character on ATHF because he's so consistently funny
I was in Yiik threads before the Running Shine video and watched walkthroughs of it before Oneyplays. There was just something so fascinating about Yiik to me.
I watched both Running Shine AND Tehsnakerer thank you very much
(The Tehsnakerer video is extremely interesting)
Why is Alex Yiik such a chad?
Y11kes guy looks like the soiboi who blew his brains out on Zoom after taling to his mom.
You for making this thread.
Sooo, did Chris Griffin punched alex after that?
No he kills himself
If they really wanted Alex to be the dickhead that people grow to like then this would have been the moment where he started having a character shift.
That and maybe not have Rory scream and gaze up into the heavens like he's revealing his master plan.
His character shift should have come when Rory killed himself (make it mandatory). Then he could have spent the days until Y2K trying to self improve and grounding himself in whats real and not on ONISM while Michael becomes more and more detached from Reality and eventually turning into Proto-Michael
I'm still not sure if they were actually trying to pull a neku (or more realistically, a scott pilgrim) and just fucked it up or if him being an unlikable shit is supposed to be some kinda meta commentary
I think it was the devs trying to make a likeable unlikeable character a la Raiden but failed miserably.
definitely a Scott Pilgrim, however they had no idea how to pull it off
A SHARK IN MINECRAFT??????
I dont remember much about this game, only that the creater tried to creat a 1:1 character of him, but the community didnt liked it, so he went bad shit insane
>only that the creater tried to creat a 1:1 character of him
That was a random guy that people thought was the creator. The actual creators look nothing like Alex.
didnt he stole something from a book?
Yeah he ripped some lines from a book and then backpedaled by trying to say the character hearing the dialogue was projecting his having read the book onto the person speaking since it was in his mind or whatever
Except the book he stole from was published AFTER the year the game was set in
>Except the book he stole from was published AFTER the year the game was set in
Yes, the game's purposefully riddled with anachronisms like games from the 90s defining his childhood and Miyamoto's grave. They're to represent that reality is already at the brink of breaking.
You REALLY don't need a high IQ to understand YiiK's symbolisms.
Dunno if sarcasm or not but sloppy writing can't just be handwaved with "dude its reality shattering"
That's a crutch for bad writing, like star wars dorks arguing everything was "the will of the force" and thus needs no basis in logic
The gamers. Imagine how this hobby could be elevated socially and culturally if it wasn't for the knuckle dragging audience holding it back.
this quote was taken out of context
the dev was on comedy podcast (called the DICK show) and was making a joke in response to a tweet that had nothing to do with YIIK, then youtube """reviewers""" pulled it out of context to paint the dev in the wrong
I dunno, he seemed pretty butthurt about the whole ordeal.
Pretentious artists usually take shit too personally like that guy who made Braid who cried when Soulja Boy was making fun of his game.
Or Phil Fisch
He's done multiple interviews after that and he's acknowledged how the game needed a serious edit and that he was being sarcastic on the dick show but he actually was bitter about the games reception because it was personal for the whole dev team (they're mostly brothers and sisters and their mother was dying mid development)
Of course you aren't actually interested in any of that, you just watched a video and took it as the gospel truth about the guy.
You'll probably just call me the dev in reponse, I'm just a fat nerd on Ganker tired of people talking about shit they have no idea about.
>I'm just a fat nerd
Yeah, so it didn’t cross your mind that the dev is just backpedalling because people called him out on his dumb quote. I’ve watched the video, typical seething right into the typical “oh I was just joking LOL”. Fuck off retard.
>you just watched a video and want to watch me jerk off
This sounds like he's serious to me
This read to me like he wasn't completely serious, but still believed what he said.
Also, saying that shitty art is still art is a terrible excuse for his poor craftsmanship.
I thought the quote was making the point that the Yiik dev was pretentious and thought people who didn't like Alex weren't sophisticated enough to understand his brilliant writing. I think this was how the quote was used in the Running Shine video, for example.
But I definitely agree that he wasn't actually sincerely saying games aren't art, I thought that was just a sarcastic way of saying many gamers don't appreciate arty games. I think that quote picture was trying to say this, from the text in bold, which is wrong
im 2 episodes in oney's gameplay and i already hate this fucking game. The way the MC and this fucking cat cunt is talking/thinking. ffs this game is horrible
Kind of related but its kind of odd Running Shines' other videos are just as good as his YIIK one but don't have nearly as many views. I really want his talent to be recognized. his music is pretty good too
There's already a million video essays on Sonic Adventure and OoT, and not enough normies care about Mischief Makers or Kirby 64. Yiik hit the sweet spot.
Here's hoping the next vid does well.
>the only negative review on the channel has more views than all 6 positive game reviews combined
That's youtube for you.
can you fags just post the girls already
Not gay but can you fuck him?
I played it last year and ended up liking YIIK. Is there something wrong with me?
Why did you like it?
I think artistically it's an entertaining game but the gameplay kinda sucked. But I loved the experience overall the music and visuals are great
The gold alpaca isn’t actually real, Alex made it up to seem like he was in the right. That’s why it is so blatantly out of place in the story
The golden alpaca got retconned to be sepiroth and voiced by kira yoshikage.
Was the "Alex is an unreliable narrator" shit present in the release version or is exclusive to the updates?
Always been there
If you pay attention to the stuff Michael and Alex are saying about Sammy’s disappearance at the beginning you realize it’s impossible, and the entire end sequence where Alex claims to have astral projected he’s just inside his own mind dungeon
