Victory, you say?
Truth said:The title of this thread is wrong.
This kind of wanking, crying, blubbering, jealous, hateful, repulsively idiotic masturbatory bullshit response.
The funniest thing about all this is the (abundantly elf-evident) irony this particular individual came out of this way to complain about the very crime he’s committing, i.e., he’s doing precisely everything they say it’s wrong, showing absolutely no self-awareness of this fact. Quoting Spoony, that’s kind of “amazingly lame”.
Another point of interest is that, unlike you’d expect, the WC fans were quietly discussing this on their own forum, and not on the comment boards of the review site.
Quatro said:The key complaint here is not about him doing Wing Commander with his unique brand of asshole angst comedy. It's that unique brand of asshole angst comedy that actually is the big complaint - and the fact that so many people like this kind of comedy is an even bigger one. I'm not going to bother going into more detail, LOAF already did that - suffice to say, it sucks that there's so many people out there who love watching some guy rant about some random product.
While I understand and not entirely disagree with what you and LOAF are saying, I must admit I actually enjoy some those reviews. I also check the AGVN, Nostalgia Critic, even Zero Punctuation. Not all of the episodes are entertaining, mind you, and sometimes they are unfunny, wrong, or do things that are downright moronic and/or of horrendously distasteful. It’s certainly not for everybody, and it’s not all good. Still, overall, it’s just comedy, and sometimes insightful.
And yeah, they are all characters and it's all an act. This is made very clear when Spoony is speaking off-character, like when he spoke about Avatar.
