Scumbag Developer


On the 18th of October, the developer of Day One Garry's Incident issued a copyright strike against my channel (TotalBiscuit), effectively censoring the criticism of their game. This is an account of what happened and why it should never be allowed to happen again.

He buried that company.
#20 - joshofsouls (10/21/2013) [-]

See, I'm actually GLAD that this happened to TB, not because of anything I have against him, but because I know he's going to make sure that this company gets what's coming to them.

You don't **** with the Cynical Brit.
User avatar #188 to #20 - cozer (10/22/2013) [-]
Yeah, you don't **** with TB. That company is probably going to go bankrupt now and I give no ***** . They are going to get what's coming to them.
#189 to #20 - anon (10/22/2013) [-]
Yeah besides the fact that TB is a COMNPLETE asswipe who cares nothing for his fans at all only his own income. **** him.

What?
Feels like that pic is quite a bit older than that episode

Is there perhaps a similar picture in the manga?
User avatar #180 to #158 - joshofsouls (10/21/2013) [-]
Nah, the picture is pretty new.

Pretty much my reaction to them and Youtube in general.

i recall he said in one of his tweets about this issue he said he was going to go "nuclear" come monday, being the man that i know TB is, ***** about to go down...

A devoloper that cannot take criticism?   
I bet that everyone is trying to butthurt him right now on the steam forums.

too bad he has habit of banning them from negative critic, like our dear Admin does
#161 to #48 - shipin (10/21/2013) [-]
www.metacritic.com/game/pc/day-one-garrys-incident
They gave their own game a 10/10 rating and even elaborated on why they thought it was the best game, as if they were the consumer.
#168 to #161 - takemythumb (10/21/2013) [-]
those negative scores. wow
#171 to #168 - shipin (10/21/2013) [-]
Would you look at that, the second 10/10 review by poster wgstudio. I'm sure Wild Games Studio will be pleased with this review.
#37 - downtrail (10/21/2013) [-]
I've never seen any of TotalBiscuit's videos before, but he just gained a whole world of respect from me for the way he handled this.
#64 to #37 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
Yeah, but don't go beyond that.
He's a massive cunt who can give critisism, but can't take it.
#82 to #64 - alexanderh (10/21/2013) [-]
He's gotten a lot better at taking criticism, you have to give him that. But, to be fair, humans weren't built to take criticism, especially not at the scale he takes it.
#97 to #82 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
He uses the size of his channel as an excuse. Like, when he gets valid criticism, he does what Admin does (No offense, addy) and says "Show me your 1 mil. subscribers and then tell me your criticism again"
Obviously nobody has a channel his size, since he's got quite a vast monopoly on criticism apparently.
/v/ might've shown me his cuntiness and i was still like "Yeah, alright, he can't do anything about that, he might be under a lot of stress." But then i just saw more of him being an upright cunt about it.
Even in this video he's like "YEAH I'M A HERO WITH MY NETWORK YAAAAY", displaying his monopoly and boasting about his videos.

tl;dr he has good points, but he's a goddamn cunt and i can't stand his fake british accent.
#100 to #97 - alexanderh (10/21/2013) [-]
Wait, fake accent? You do know he's from England, right?

Also, he comes across very differently to us. To me, he's criticizing the devs of a crappy game for doing anti-consumerist stuff.
#105 to #100 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
Yeah, but it's been generally proven that it's fake.
He can be from Britain all he want, i know plenty of British people and they say i've got more of a british accent than they do.

To me, the general rule is "If you give criticism, expect to tolerate it when you get it back".
Hell, he once even made a video of "This video didn't have enough views, where's my monies?" wich instantly made me think "Well **** this cunt" and made me unsubscribe.
And i know i'm just a fish in a big, big pond, but i've seen plenty of people get critized by him for unsubscribing where he's like "Oh yeah, well i got 1 million more and you're already replaced!"
As a subscriber, i'm directly fueling his partnership with Youtube, and he's like "I don't owe you anything". Well, then i guess i don't owe him anything either.
User avatar #109 to #105 - xjvlezmerised ONLINE (10/21/2013) [-]
well tbh theres a difference between criticism and stupid ******** . which most of the time TB is defending himself against stupid ********
#114 to #109 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
The thing is that he doesn't differentiate the two either.   
He's like "Oh it's some criticism inbetween 2 stupid 			********		 things, i'll just collectively swipe them under the rug and pretend neither happened."   
   
What seems like stupid 			********		 to you, might seem reasonabe to me. Like, you might find the fact that he made that video of "I don't have enough viewers on that" completely fair and reasonable, but to me it's just stupid 			********		.

#127 to #114 - alexanderh (10/21/2013) [-]
The ones I remember where he said something to that effect, he was asking why he didn't get as many views, so he could try to cater more towards what his viewers want.
#141 to #127 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
I once saw him flat out refuse, and insult a guy who made a friendly request of "Hey, can you upload more of this game, i'd like to see more of it"   
And he was like "I got this entire damn team who watches wich video gets more views and telling us what to upload more of, i don't need you, go ahead and unsubscribe. you're already replaced."   
   
And i just thought "Hey, this guy just made a request, no reason to completely flip him off"

#145 to #141 - alexanderh (10/21/2013) [-]
I've never seen that, could you provide some sort of link or source? I'd like to see the context ;)
#175 to #145 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
Oh and i found this
#182 to #175 - alexanderh (10/21/2013) [-]
To be fair to TB, the hostilities were started by the viewer. The viewer was sarcastic, and since TB does deal with a lot of BS comments, it gets to his head.
TB had a pretty violent reaction, but it is most likely due to a number of things, like the viewer being hostile and sarcastic, and other viewers acting similarly.

By the way, he has stated repeatedly that he doesn't take requests. A lot of his viewers don't seem to understand this concept, which can get quite annoying to deal with.
#183 to #182 - kinginthenorth (10/21/2013) [-]
Then why does TB even bother with the comments? Everyone knows Youtube comments are just an ocean of piss.

To me, TB's just throwing a bitchfit about a threat to his yewtube monies and causing some pretty permanent damage to the studio, altough some of it was because of themselves, he's just blowing it out of proportion. Meanwhile, TB's review (wich cost him nothing and did end up giving him money) is back up, wich means no real damage is done to TB, besides a relatively small loss of ad revenue.

I know it's all about the bigger concept of "Muh freedom of speech", but TB's just throwing a hissyfit over something that could've been solved easily.
Now he's just raking in the monies from his new video and happy how he caused a new storm about something so he can make videos on it and keep getting money from it.
#190 to #183 - alexanderh (10/22/2013) [-]
He's donating all the money he gets from that video, and the discussion video, to the EFF. He's not earning any money at all on that video.
And I think it's important to bring up issues like this. If he just swallowed it, that studio wouldn't have been called out on it, and would have successfully censored a bad review, which is illegal in both the US, and in all European countries.

I can't find the particular comment, but i can find this.
He has a condition, according to tvtropes.org/pmwiki/posts.php?discussion=13617680250A63640100&page=0 this. I know, great sources. I hope it's clickable. That apparently makes him have extremely short temper and not enough patience for puzzle games, i wonder why the guy bothers with comments.
He has a network to mostly do it for him, and it's only going to make him look back. After about ~20 videos explaining his issues and updating on his current states and **** , i think he'd learn.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbEzlKZZGZg#t=86
Now this, is what pissed me off at him. He just bitches at everything, just because some of his viewers aren't interested in some videos.

Yeah. The only reason I wanted the thumbs is so it can be seen on front page. I pretty much never post any content, and I'm not likely to post anything else anytime soon.
User avatar #25 to #21 - Yukimaru (10/21/2013) [-]
That point when you realize this isn't the content you posted... I posted the same thing earlier. Don't care though. I'm just glad people are seeing it.

damn, 0.5/10 on metacritic. www.metacritic.com/game/pc/day-one-garrys-incident/user-reviews And the 'fake' reviews done by the devs.
"Very nice game, good grapfiks. AI has many smarts. Hard realistical kombat. Great monkey banana play. Item make is good Make spears and and more weepons. Good story, one of best games 2013 of me play."
"...It is the best game ever! I hope people stop harassing developers!!"
"...I have only one question to ask. WHY AREN'T YOU PLAYING THIS GAME?!"
And the last one was made by user named D1GI Day One: Garry's Incident isawesome
User avatar #59 to #57 - mykoira (10/21/2013) [-]
oh yeah and the sentence "A few bugs and glitches, but the game run well with PC." are repeated few times in different 10/10 reviews
"After playing the game for an hour, i must say, Its a pretty good game! The only letdown in this game is the bugs, i mean, theres alot of bugs and glitches in this game. You play as Garry, im guessing he lost his wife and so he got a little drunk and decided to drive a plane, A valcano explodes and it makes the plane un-usable. The next thing you know your being dragged by a bunch of weird temple people, then you close your eyes, and when you re-open them, you see your in a temple, with someone trying to sacrifice you. I rate this game 9/10, i would recommend it, but the people who made this game really need to clean out the bugs." And this piece of review was twice. and on top of all there is this master piece: "The game is very very exiting and fun, developers work so hard and are very talent. Thank you thank you for great game. Would buy many copies so fun!" done by guy named wildgames87456
#103 - injerseyforever (10/21/2013) [-]
I Broke Day One: Garry's Shitty Incident Wow this game is infuriatingly bad. This is one of the playthroughs he mentioned in the video and it's absolutely hilarious.
After watching it I realized the game was so terrible that I went and signed the petition that MrLockleyHat posted in comment 15.
Holy balls this is bad.
