    Oh, right. I'm tempted to look up his blogs, but I'd probably fall down a hole of endless criticism when I need to sleep.

    Very creative use of the title Phil. *Gold clap*.


    But seriously, I think Outer Heaven would be neat to re-incorporate, BUT the first few weeks / months would probably be trash considering everyone would want to try it out. Like Brownballs said too, a lot of mean spirited people would probably rear their heads up and just be annoying.

    Yeah. There hasn't been a "Here's a bunch of angry YouTube comments I found funny" articles for awhile, which was always Sterling's thing. Don't miss those.

    *edit*

    Spoke too soon!

    I bought into HUGE right away, simply because I find it fair to pay a small amount for a site I like. Also: automated entries in raffles. And since the bonusses you get are rather minor, I don't see any downsides with it.

    Besides that I found it hugely funny how Sterling joked over the pre-order culture in gaming, when DToid did pretty much that with HUGE too. Cool bonusses and stuff was promised, but no one knew if they would be delivered or what they actually would be. Not too much of a problem for me, since I like to support stuff I like no matter what, but still...

    There should be a newsletter or something to tell me what's new every month, because fuck going on the frontpage. Still feels like there hasn't been anything worth the monthly fee.

    Sadly, I agree. I tried to pay, and it wouldn't activate the membership.

    At this point, I think it might have been trying to tell me something.

    Don't you guys want to support their four and a half different versions of Let's-plays though!?!?!

    /sarcasm


    On the other hand, I don't mind the FP as much with a lot of that click-bait drama gone. The auto-play videos are super annoying though, they need to change that. And yes, I've already tried clicking the box to disable auto-play, but it still unchecks itself every time I go there.

    I'm still on the fence about it. I didn't like when Giant Bomb added subscriptions and having it here at home, I don't know guys. It seems to wall off access there, but here I'm so unaware of where everything is, I don't think I could find the doors I don't have keys for.

    At least Giant Bomb shows me the things I can't see.

    I was just thinking about you yesterday when I read through that long-ass goodbye blog from Nanbu. It made me nostalgic for the old days of Dtoid.

    I haven't talked with you in quite a while. How have you been, dude?

    That Nanbu blog hit on all the right notes if you ask me.

    Missed that blog, so I just gave it a read. Yeah, sums up my feelings in much the same way.

    Also, I've been noticing how Jim isn't all that keen on doing Now Bloody Playing, but obviously has to because...well, money. People don't want to read gaming sites as much as they used to, and now the money's all in YT partnerships and the like. Must be an absolute kick to the balls for him, really.

    On the latest Indigo Prophecy video, he was basically plugging his new YT channel alongside Dtoid. It's crazy how he's gone from, "Ha ha! Herp Derp PewDiePie!" to "Hey, if you want, come see me play games outside the norm featured on Dtoid." Guess hanging out with Total Biscuit has rubbed off on him.

    Problem is, on a lot of his vids, he doesn't sound too convinced about you chipping in for Dtoid Huge; the jokes about diminishing returns while telling you about all the new premium features isn't exactly a great advertisement. Judging from the ratings, people just want him to do one part videos and move on.

    Anyway, minor rant and just another reason why I can't chip in. If Jim's not all that into it and setting up a monetised YT channel in his name, then I don't know...Nanbu's bit about the writing being on the wall has some truth to it.

    If I had to hypothesize why Jim might not seem that into Now Bloody Playing, it would be this: Destructoid is trying to get away from click-bait articles now that Huge is around. The thing that kind of made Jim a bigger name was through being a kind of trollish click-machine.

    Lurking more. My free time now goes to writing the Bquest novel and actually playing games. I still pop in for the occasional comment here and there, but I quit coming here first. I go to Giant Bomb for content now, their site is a lot cleaner to use and easy to browse. Destructoid feels garbled. The ipad ap has ads that break it completely, taking a page and making me click it in the middle of a story isn't good at all. I pretty we'll quit writing about games, I have a few things worth posting but I doubt I will.

    I scrolled back a few weeks in the C-blogs and couldn't find that Nanbu article. Did it get deleted or is I am retarded?

    In the article she asked for a ban on her account, and they did that, which deleted (or hid, or something) her article.

    Is anybody else seeing Destructoid.beta when they click on front page stories?


    Only seems to happen when I’m logged in, which makes me wonder if it’s related to Huge. Honestly I hope something has just gone wrong and I’m seeing the mobile beta (it looks like a smartphone layout), because God help us if this is another redesign, especially since it’s awful looking unless it’s meant for smartphones.


    So, anybody else seeing this?
