December 2016 State of YouTube Address

I figure I would have to post this eventually but yeah, it’s time for the State of YouTube Address on my channel.

This is very important so if you haven’t seen it then go watch it right now.

Been a While Isn’t it?

Yeah… I wanted to express my feelings on it here in this blog because it’s better than having it anywhere else.

This isn’t easy for me to say it but fuck it, I’m going to say what I want to say and without any regrets. Basically now that we’re in the month of October, things have started to slow down. Despite the fact that Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice has concluded with the DLC case as well as two special videos showing All Breakdowns and Cutscenes, I feel that now the channel is declining again. I tried my best that no matter what I would say that my channel would bounce back. In September it did bounce back and I was happy that it did. However when it was all over and done with, things start to slow down to a crawl. I noticed because people are less inclined to watch and comment. It’s very sad. Despite the fact that I’m doing games like Paper Mario: Color Splash and Azure Striker Gunvolt 2, it isn’t enough. It just isn’t.

2016 has been a year of ups and a lot of downs. The many downs were the result of Arc System Works terminating my YouTube Channel and basically signing its death warrant. It in turn caused my channel to suffer. It’s like my YouTube channel is being punished for something that it didn’t do. It’s not fair, truthfully. It just isn’t and as I said the many people I know, watch and support continue to get bigger and bigger while I just sputter and chog down. It’s just not fair. It isn’t fair that others get to be bigger and I can’t. I do the same thing as everyone else but yet why don’t I get this chance? Tell me. Why.

I don’t know if I should be worrying about it but as someone that just wants to make a name for himself, it’s becoming difficult. I have been on YouTube for a decade and I have never even come close to what I hope to achieve. All I ever achieved is a negative reputation and no appreciation. It sucks that this is the fate I will eventually have and it has me wondering if it is time for me to move on. Part of me says that I should move on to maybe getting a job but part of me says I can’t because this is my job. I may not be making much money but at least it helps keep me afloat, for better or worse. I personally feel that this year was NOT a very good year… not only for my YouTube channel but also for myself as things just didn’t seem to go right for me. It never did. Part of me makes me feel like I should rage and another part shouldn’t but this is the least I can do. I need to let this all out. I have to.

That’s about it. I only say this because my channel has no future years down the line and when I do get a job, I’m more than willing to say goodbye to my YouTube channel and say… it’s time to move on.

Blog Update

I apologize everyone if there hasn’t been any updates in a while. I’ve been busy with my YouTube Channel. Unfortunately I wish to discuss about that which I feel, it may not be for everyone but I want to get it out of the way.

Before I do, I’m going to list many of the reviews I plan to upload here on this blog. I also upload my reviews at The Angry Joe Forums and GameFAQs. Why? Because sometimes I hope that maybe some review website will pick me up. One tried but I wasn’t interested.

Upcoming Reviews

  • Mighty No. 9
  • Song of the Deep
  • SteamWorld Heist
  • Pokken Tournament

More will be coming so keep an eye out.

Anyway, I don’t know if anyone has been made aware, this month hasn’t been very good on YouTube. It has been this way for probably 2-3 months, ever since Arc System Works came in and terminated my channel because I was uploading Story mode footage of Blazblue Chronophantasma Extend. I got my channel back after spending 10 hours trying to talk to the people to see if they could… and they did, provided I never upload anything like that again such as story and arcade mode. Fuck those guys! Fuck those guys for stabbing my channel and leaving me to bleed out. I had to remove over 100 videos relating to Arc System Works and since then, I’ve gone on record and have said that I will no longer be covering their games. In fact, I am boycotting ALL games made by them until further notice. Thankfully there are many other games I look forward to playing AND there are other companies I can devote my time to supporting, especially SNK. SNK is being more consumer friendly and this alone makes me really happy.

Regardless, I am currently doing the following games at the moment.

Fire Emblem Fates Revelation – The third (and canon) story, serving to close the book on the entire game. I’m only covering the main story since truthfully, doing all the Paralogues when I’ve done them in both Birthright & Conquest is meaningless. Not only that but the remaining Xenologues will be covered as well, along with the Amiibo battles. That’s LONG overdue.

Monster Hunter Generations – This game is fun. It really is fun because I get to enjoy using different weapons to smack monsters around. I’m already at Episode 8 but sadly, very few people are watching & interacting. It’s disappointing but I will be continuing it until there’s a set point because I don’t know if I would want to tackle the even tougher monsters. Fortunately I will grind when I can to get needed stuff so I can get stronger. I have to.

These are the games that I am covering but if you want a little peek of what I have planned for August, well… there isn’t much. One game I will be doing is Azure Striker Gunvolt and I am doing the game as it was originally released. I know about the Striker Pack that’s coming in September. Point is, that I want to at least cover it before the sequel comes out, and yes, I’m buying the game physically because it comes with the first game… the way it should be.

I’m taking way too long so yeah, hope to hear from everyone regarding this. Tuesday, I will be doing Juri’s character story mode in Street Fighter V. I am hyped.

What is Wrong with YouTube?

Now normally I wouldn’t be bitching about this but honestly, I just needed to get this out of my system because all this week, I’ve been noticing a decline in everything on my channel.

It isn’t just views that are sagging but also comments, likes, everything. Everything is going downhill and I really don’t know what I’ve been doing wrong.

I know I haven’t been doing coverage of the newer games like Fallout 4 and Star Wars: Battlefront. The reason is due to low finances and it’s been happening all year round. It’s at the worst ever and being a channel that wants to make a break and having been trying for 9 years now, it’s hard.

I thought that maybe if I took the safe route, it would be easier but it turns to be a lie. All this year I’ve done some new games but I put my effort toward the older games. Some games include the Ace Attorney games and Shovel Knight. Unfortunately they aren’t giving me much of the interaction I needed. Yet when I see other people do the same thing as I do, they get more interaction and feedback.

I’ve been getting less interaction and feedback almost every day. It’s concerning because I thrive on feedback no matter what it is and all of this is becoming a big issue. I feel like it’s only a matter of time before the light that is my YouTube channel will start to flicker and then fade away.

Guess it means that my YouTube Channel is on the verge of dying. In the nine years that I’ve been on this website, I have experienced many highs and unbelievable lows. Since 2012 when YouTuber Cobanermani456 had shamed and exposed me because of my negative actions, I have garnered a negative reputation. One that it’ll remain with me from now till the day I die. Personally I find it to be wrong since yes, I did fuck up but he had no right to basically shame me because of it. As a result, many people start to see me in a different light… a negative light. While this guy is a full blown YouTube celebrity getting to do things like go to conventions, travel to events, etc. I have become an outcast by the YouTube gaming community. I don’t make that many friends and I mostly spend my time away alone. Fitting… because personally I’m sick of that.

I’ve had this for three years and I feel that everything I’ve experienced is leading up to this. I feel that now it is the point where I’m on my last legs. I have had my fair share of troubles such as a mass disliking troll who has made my life miserable to subscriber burn (from what I heard, it’s all bullshit) to YouTube fucking around with the website to favor bigger channels over smaller ones. It’s now become a near impossibility and it has contributed to a depression that still lingers in me to this day. Unfortunately it is driving me to that point… a point where i don’t want to cross.

So I’ve decided to take the chance and find a job hoping that I can maybe do something more productive with my life. I had an interview and didn’t get it. But that will not stop me. I’m going to keep trying. I’m going to find a job where I can start doing something productive and hopefully start getting away from YouTube because being on the channel and doing video is a hassle. It’s a chore and it’s enough to make me sick. Although I have fun doing videos for everyone, the fact that very few people watch is enough to make my skin crawl. It’s a reason why I’ve been losing subscribers as of late. Maybe because people got bored of me and they want to find someone better. I find it understandable. If they feel my content is not up to their standards, I’m okay with it.

All I do know is that I want things for my channel to get better. I want to grow. I want to get bigger but YouTube just keeps making things tougher. Made worse is that YouTube is a competitive environment where its survival of the fittest. Only the strong survive and those with weak wills are pushed by the wayside. I am one of these weak willed people.

But whatever happens from here is of my choosing. I feel like I want to bury the hatchet with the people I’ve hurt but who knows if they decide to take a chance and talk to me. I doubt it. But only time will tell. If Cobi wants to maybe bury the hatchet, it’s up to him but I only have one simple request… he has to at least man up and apologize for shaming me. Because actions like what happened years ago have consequences and they can be very dire.

Who knows.

November 2015 YouTube Channel Update

This is part of my YouTube Channel Update that I have uploaded today.

Guess doing this was the best option I have since doing a video isn’t going to cut it. Of course that video is the short version. This here is the version that’s going to be long and I’m going to say a lot here. Why? Because I have so much that I want to get off my chest, it isn’t funny. If you don’t believe me then stick around and give it a read because you may not like what you’re about to hear.

Before I do say it however, I want to get out of the way and say that Justice for All is done as in I’ve finished recording it and all the episodes are done. Basically today and tomorrow I will be finishing it up. As for if I plan on doing the third game, I’ve decided to put it on hold until I feel it is okay. Because I mean what’s the point if I do it again if I have already done it years ago. I feel personally doing the Ace Attorney Trilogy was a mistake because it’s like playing the games again except it doesn’t feel the same as it used to. Therefore I decided that I’m not doing the third game for the foreseeable future. I want to focus on maybe getting my channel back on its feet. I will be doing more games with commentary since I feel that people want to see that. I have some games that I plan to do with one being a game that many have played: Shovel Knight. Thing is, I’m doing it on the PS4 since the game is now going retail. It’s been out digitally for a while but now that it’s going to go physical, all the more reason to give it a shot. Not to mention that I will be doing LEGO Star Wars: The Complete Saga. Why? To prep up for Star Wars Episode 7: The Force Awakens. I’m excited for that movie and what better way to prep up the hype than by playing this and it’ll have commentary as well as some precautions. You’ll see what I mean.

So I now got this out of the way, I want to get to the main focus of the update and it’s two-fold I might add. First, it pains me to say it but two weeks ago, I have been banned from Twitch for life. Why because I was pressured in saying something that I shouldn’t. As a result, the person that was harassing me uploaded the video, without my consent, reported it to Twitch staff and got my account banned indefinitely. I have since filed an appeal. It’s been two weeks and I feel that even though I try my best, Twitch will probably not listen and say that the suspension is valid. I plan on streaming but on YouTube Gaming. I did some tests and it went well. But the question is when I’ll be streaming again. It won’t be for a while. I haven’t decided on when I will return to streaming. The problem is that this person who has gotten me banned is determined to make my life miserable and I feel I have a theory on why he’s doing this.

The reason why he’s doing this is because there are two YouTubers that I legitimately dislike: Cobanermani456 and BlahBlahLPs. I feel that he’s doing it in the hopes that maybe he would get the two to work with him to get me banned. That I believe is a theory but I really don’t know the truth. The worst part is that they may not believe me and think that I’m speaking bullshit. I really don’t know for sure but I do know is that this guy knows I dislike them but I feel that his goal is to ban me from every single website imaginable. If the two were to ever find out about this person’s actions, they wouldn’t condone it. Not one bit. But I’m getting way ahead of myself here so I don’t really know all the answers.

Last but not least is of YouTube Red. Yep, it has gone live and I know that this may help Content Creators but I can tell that it’ll be a blessing in disguise. Why? Because the revenue I’ve gotten out of YouTube Red is less. It may build up over time but I doubt it. I don’t have a dedicated fanbase, just a small one at best. My videos I made about YouTube Red and why you shouldn’t use it doesn’t help matters. But I feel that personally I don’t know. It’s a reason why I went out to find a job. I had an interview and though it went well, I didn’t get the job. It won’t stop me from trying again. I promise that I will try again to get a job so I can be able to support myself and maybe make this channel be a hobby again. That’s all I hope for. I care for my well being as well as all of you. I can’t say it enough because I want to start finding something that is worth doing in life. As much as I want to keep on doing this, it won’t last forever and judging by how this channel has been going through this year, it’s not especially with CPM being REALLY FUCKING BAD all year round. I guess AdBlock really is the reason why YouTube Red had to come about but even that is doubtful. It really is.

Regardless of such, I thank you all for taking the time to read this as well as watching my update. I will be returning to doing more Let’s Plays with commentary in the coming days. My reviews will still be continuing as usual but I only hope that things for the channel do get better. If not, I may as well just accept it and maybe try to find a way to get it better. Only time will tell.

Thanks for reading.

Pokemon X & Y Wi-Fi Battle #72: Vs. ZerkerXror

Yep. This is my last Wi-Fi battle video for a while. Tomorrow starts Layton vs. Ace Attorney and I at least want to get this out of the way. Tonight will be a channel update that will explain a couple of things and then tomorrow is the big day.
