Had to go do something. This is the guy who is/was friends with Jon and Arin and i'm here again to answer questions about whatever you want Grumps related.
I'll start off again by saying I know most of the grumps except I don't really know Barry. Base you questions on that.
>I farted while watching game grumps which led to the truth AMA
These are just annoying, every time they say just wait till "shit hits the fan and you'll know who I am." Will it? Will it ever hit the fan?
I met Arin through one of his other NG friends, we became really, really great friends for a while. I met Jon through Arin.
Really, really nice. He goes with everything and is just generally chill.
It will hit the fan, I can tell you that. I hate saying it like that because i sound like "im super spy 007 lol xD cnat know my identitdy"
I'm not exactly "big" on the internet, so telling you would be a waste of your time, and would cause trouble with everyone who I mention.
Again, i'm not gonna say. That would be stupid, as Arin still browses NG a bit, and even /v/.
Answered it before, but basically, Jon and Arin would have little drops in their friendship, as in periods where they would hate each other.
Well, Arin told Jon they were doing Steam Train. (Not pitched, just said "Jon, we're doing this."
Basically, Jon got angry that a) Arin didn't consult Jon at all, and b) Already told Ross and Dan they would pick up their show without any sort of "I'll get back to you on it" or anything. It was just "You're doing Steam Train on our channel, and Jon you're gonna deal with it."
Jon was sick of the dishonesty, Arin bossing him around and Arin being a dick. Jon just accepted it because Arin would remind him "IM EGORAPTOR" Jon didn't see him as "Arin Hanson" He saw him as "Egoraptor", one of his heroes.
Jon, for sure. I've always liked Jon more. He was always cheerful and never had to put anyone down to be funny. We used to have this thing where we would go to lunch and just vent about, whatever, and he would always make me feel better and I would always wish I could return the favor to him by cheering him up, but he was/is rarely sad and when he was he never affected other people with it.
Arin, however, is funny in the way that you laugh at because it's so stupid. Even before Steam Train, he'd pick on Ross for something like "you seriously look like you have downs right now" and Ross would just laugh awkwardly.
I should also mention Ross has considered leaving a lot. Like I said in the last thread, Arin forced him into it by saying stuff like "dude ive been so good for your career in the past if you say no you'd really be breaking my trust" and making him feel guilty, etc;.
I believe this. It's really just two different personalities that have a hard time meshing, eventually splitting. Sad, but sensible, and it's not a dramatic thing.
Any dramatic stuff is a result of Arin still having a show to run and wanting to keep things out of the public eye.
>Any dramatic stuff is a result of Arin still having a show to run and wanting to keep things out of the public eye.
It's half this, but most of the "drama" you've seen lately is literally Jon purposely leaking stuff , but being subtle about it so no one looks back and blames him for it, as he's under a shit ton of contract.
I don't think he's a dick, he just puts himself above people, a lot.
Yeaah, me, Oney and Stamper are pretty close. Oney is just a really nice guy, and Stamper is just honest which is amazing. He also disagrees with the "business" shit Arin does, and only went on Table Flip because he was just starting a new series and wanted to get as much exposure before he released his big bang load.
>We used to have this thing where we would go to lunch and just vent about, whatever
How come posting how you know them would get you in trouble with them but posting personal experiences like this is fine? What, did he go to lunch and vent with like 20 other dudes on a daily basis?
ego seems like a dick but I really can't see him saying shit like that to people. His humor is kinda... family guy ish. It's bad, but it doesn't seem mean spirited. That is unless his on screen persona is completely different than his off screen.(In which case I wouldn't be surprised)
You're an idiot. When you make a thread where our ability to know which posts are yours, you need to trip. This is more or less the only time someone should trip and you fucked it up.
I'm amazed no one has pieced together what really happened.
Over the course of JonGrumps, Arin's condition and attitude worsened due to factors caused by Suzy. However, it was never relationship-related. Suzy is literally an alien, hence her disgusting appearance. She fed Arin horrible alien food that manifested a mutation inside of him in the form of multiple chins, which are actually sentient tumors that now have full control over his body, hence his 180 in character over time. The streak in his hair is another piece of alien technology meant to suppress any tinfoil hat that would, well, foil Suzy's plans.
Jon is the only one on the crew that knows the full story and once he found out he was removed from the picture forcefully. Dan's too inattentive to notice what's going on and Ross is too beta to press on the matter. Barry has a feeling something is up, but he had to cut contact with Jon to keep up appearances and never got the full story from him either. He's our last hope.
>Too cool for school.
>Arin dropped out of high school.
What are they position on this whole Zoe Quinn fiasco? Why aren't they helping? I saw Arin's tweet about this and it really got me down, I always had the impression that he was a smart guy and was better than this, that he'd know better than covering up all of this crap in the industry.
Why does Arin insult everybody he ever does a let's play with, it was kind of funny with Jon as he knew how to laugh it off but Danny just sort of pretends nothing happened and I find it fucking weird.
>yeah i really think this game has good phy-
>play the fucking game you piece of worthless shit jesus christ
>...yeah the soft body physics in this...
it's like watching a beaten housewife
No. Jon vented with a lot of people, especially about Arin. He was always just open about stuff.
You just have to live with him. He's always saying something that hurts someone's feelings, but usually picks up on it quick and almost always makes up for it, though. He's still really really nice, just not as open as Jon is.
Yup, that's how he talks, and always has, more or less. I'll admit sometimes it's exaggerated, but his voice in his update video is his normal speaking voice. Pebbles is fuckin' nice as shit. Again, like Stamper, he's really honest about shit, which I like. Also, he'll become friends with just about anybody, you could just walk up to him and go "hey whats up" and he'd see you as a possible friend.
I don't know what it is, but it might be that everyone just's kinda treated him good all his life, and I can't think of one time he took a critique from me or Jon good. He thinks everything he does is perfect, and whenever I, Jon, Oney, or any of his other friends would critique or give tips on him for something, he would always say something like "I know what i'm doing, alright?"
It started as just Arin taking her side, but then he forced everyone else the same ideal.
It really only shows up when he's doing something competitive, but sometimes it's just at random.
I know A.D.D is a lame excuse, but in that specific moment it was just Arin getting impatient. He does that, alot.
Yeah, Jon was very social.
And he obviously loved lunch.
I barely use 4chan so whatever, trip this, trip that.
not OP but obviously it was a point of contention between the two, and the straw that broke the camel's back. Jon did a promo for steamtrain, but even in the promo you can tell Jon was pushing against it. It went through, and Jon eventually said he was out. Not hard to see.
He was very, very skeptical about it, but being him, signed a few contracts for it, made a few (I think 4) promos for it, 3 with him in it, one without him in it. Basically, Arin told him Steam Train was going to be something like "just like game grumps but with different people" so Jon was totally on board. He signed contracts, made promos, etc;
But as soon as they were done setting everything up, Arin revealed he lied about what Steam Train was gonna be, and ignored when Jon said he didn't like it.
I have no idea. He really forces whatever he thinks on people. He wasn't like that before, though. I don't want to sound like a dick, but he def. gets it from Suzy.
This actually made me laugh.
>arin go suck a big one.
RicePirate? Ugh I hate him what an asian i bet he's gay and likes boys
You're not far off.
Easy money. Doesn't really like to interact with the fans.
>Easy money. Doesn't really like to interact with the fans.
Yea, seemed so.
What does he think of animation? I liked his old stuff alot more than grumps, will he ever animate again? Or does he consider it "not worth it" with his grump money?
Yeah he used to be cool. He did voice work and some comedy but then won some music contest and thought he was amazing and started just making music. Also he's from england but for some reason pretends to be American. He doesn't use his real name either since he doesnt want all the furry shit being associated with the real him.
gee, sounds like you sure were gonna sucker that guy, right? you woulda really got 'im good!
it was an ongoing point of contention for a while, and outright refusing to be associated with it in any way at all would be overtly saying he was leaving. Is it crazy to think there was a time where he was fighting it, opposing it but going along with it a little bit just hoping to get it to stop, and then ended up turning back when the ultimatum time came?
Your "gotcha!" wouldn't have meant dick, dude. OP clearly talked about it being something that upset Jon for a while, because he didn't want his name attached to it but also didn't fully want to leave, especially like that.
RicePirate and Jon are both with normalboots.
RicePirate and stamper have been seen as quite good friends ESPECIALLY after potato salad
RicePirate is quite articulate in his grammar but not enough to the point he won't disdain from shut like mild cussing or slang
RicePirate has is not as well known as the rest, not to disrespect but he just isn't, which is what this anon has said that he isn't big on NG etc.
Among oney, stamper, Jon, pebbles and arin the only guys jot mentioned are hanz RicePirate and maybe el cid but the only guy I can think of being close enough would be ricepirate
If it isn't a troll I'm convinced it's ricepirate
How do you feel about your little newgrounds circlejerk having grow so much that people treat you guys like real celebrities but all your artworks have stagnated?
Egoraptor isnt animating anymore and almost 30.
In his age Richard Williams was already a legend.
You guys were the future of animation and you squandered it big time
Does egoraptor sometimes suffer from how shit his art has become?
Why would they? Just think about it. On the other hand it might benefit Arin to look like the smart person in the room for once.
>Hey I'm grump
>I'm not so grump
>And I'm banana!
>This game sucks
>Yeah, an it also racys, foo
>Man look at this shit. Collecting rings, bling bling you know, its so steriotypical, u know. Plus there be no fried chicken in the gayme
I don't think newgrounds was the future of animation. and Richard Williams was a different era. animation's not so much a marketable skill the way it used to be (I'm talking out my ass here). even Arin said he moved to LA for voice acting opportunities.
>Yes. Everyone on /v/ has a fucked up fantasy with hanging out with these guys. It's pathetic.
I think the vast majority of Game Grumps fans create new memories that involve personally hanging out with Arin, Danny, Jon, etc.
I mean, the typical Game Grumps fan watches these people every day. At a rate of 50-60 episodes per month, it's genuinely easy to hallucinate real interactions with these people. OP probably has hyper-realistic dreams about smelling Arin's farts.
So you're an animator?
Are you jelly of bahijd? That dude is just in his early 20s and already animating keyframes for space dandy and other japanese anime while all you newgrounds starlets started slacking off and failed to improve?
Jon's on an NDA, and still gets paid from old videos that still make money. He still gets his paycheck, he still has an NDA.
He loves to animate and draw still, it's just really hard for him and other content producers to make money nowadays. Sad, but that's how it is.
Probably never. Nicole is very, very nice. She's also really hilarious. I dunno, she's a girl that everyone can like and have a laugh or two with.
I'm telling you guys what I know. I know alot, but there's shit not even TotalBiscuit knows. Alot of shit was buried so deep, and it's just waiting to come out.
Yeah, Ross is debating leaving.
I don't want to talk shit about Arin, 'cause, hey, he's a good guy. But he does a lot of stuff that affects others, but he regrets it in the future.
It's hard to tell. Danny never really shows discomfort for much, because he's so humble.
I know, though, he was kinda forced on the show, and just went along with whatever. It was really odd for him though, because it's basically like Danny has to "live up" to Jon, in a way, because Jon was his predecessor.
Jon & Dan are really great friends, but probably because their personalities are just so close together. They're both really warm-hearted, honest and humble.
Yeah, exactly. It's really, really tough to be an animator. They live off commissions. You know Spazkid, right? He makes about 200 a month.
Commissions pretty much fuel animators, because animations take so long to make.
They used to say the N-word a lot because Jon hated censorship, but Arin doesn't really feel that way anymore.
And no, I'm not Oney's friend Niall.
>animation's not so much a marketable skill the way it used to be (I'm talking out my ass here)
Yeah, you do.
Google BahiJD. /a/ hates him, but that guy managed to become a key animator for stuff like space dandy when he was 21, because his shit was so good the japs hired him immediately.
He can now be a neet and draw all day while getting a fat paycheck
I second these questions, as I find the concept of "making it big" off of e-fame ant inevitably falling on one's face in the rat race of relevancy an interesting topic. I'd have pussed out and asked in a less direct way, but sometimes the hard questions need to be asked.
>Yeah, Ross is debating leaving.
How the fuck is Ross leaving?
I know you're making this shit up, but if you're going to start hallucinating these memories, at least try to keep up with the trajectory of show.
Arin just recently did an Unturned Let's Play with Ross, and Arin was basically Ross's bitch. Ross insulted Arin every 4 minutes and criticizing him for "not reading the instructions" (basically /v/ incarnate). These are not the words of a man who fears Arin in the least.
>Jon's on an NDA, and still gets paid from old videos that still make money. He still gets his paycheck, he still has an NDA.
Jon doesn't get paid any royalties. Which makes Arin even more of a jew.
It's just kind of weird. As much as I like Danny on the show, he doesn't seem to really have a connection to gaming besides the fact that he used to game as a kid.
Also, if Ross would quit, would steam train stop or is Ross debating about quiting the reason that they're bringing Suzy and Barry on the show more often?
>I second these questions, as I find the concept of "making it big" off of e-fame ant inevitably falling on one's face in the rat race of relevancy an interesting topic. I'd have pussed out and asked in a less direct way, but sometimes the hard questions need to be asked.
It's because egoratpor and his crew are a bunch of lazy losers who squandered what little talent they had and became self-absorbed obnoxious failures.
I'm sure churning out medicore crap so 14 year olds can have a giggle pays the bills but cant be fulfilling on a personal level.
Meanwhile BahiJD works from his parents basement in austria, keyframes proper japanese animu and will direct his first animated movie in a few years.
The guy is almost 10 years younger than egoraptor and is already internationally praised for his skills. (pic related, keyframe )
When egoraptor was 18 bahi was like 10.
In 8 years bahi managed to not only learn to finish high school but also become a proper animator, while egoraptor slacked off.
It's tragic. Because if you look at egoraptor's art from 2007-2012 he was improving a lot and becomming better and better. and then he just stopped some day
>How do we know this friend is a true insider and not a liar? This seems to good to be true.
He's a liar.
>people with exceptional skill tend to do good, yes
The most "skill" comes from hard work and dedication.
Do Oney, PsychicPepples, Stamper, and Shadman still live in the same place? Might send them all stuff to their PO box if so
Also if this is Ricepirate, your doing God's work providing consistent animation content last year during the great drought.
>Do Oney, PsychicPepples, Stamper, and Shadman still live in the same place? Might send them all stuff to their PO box if so
Why anyone would associate with that hack is beyond me.
His art is ugly and he is retarded.
The only saving grace is that his rich parents pay the rent for the other freeloaders
He really, really wants to focus on his cartoons, as more than half of his fans even know he's an animator. Ross also hates the "pewdiepie" mentality where you just play games and make a whole ton of cash.
No, no, no. I typed that wrong. I meant i'm not Niall, his other friend, but I am his friend.
I've seen that picture a lot. No one really knows if it is them or not, because there's not really proof against it.
Oney just got his Visa and quite literally JUST got to America. You can send mail to whoever and they'll make sure it gets to the right person, no worries about that.
No, but they used to argue over which type steak was better, if that's what you're asking.
(Personally, I like Medium Rare!)
No, not really. Arin has never brought up Jon since it happened.
What you see in the show is what happens. They don't talk about him and they don't contact him. It's sad too, as they're both great people and I just wish they'd start talking again.
Does Arin have regrets about the way shit went down with Jon?
if everything OP is saying is true, (and I've thought this before) I thought the way they've been changing steam train lately has been to make it more Ross-centric, if anything. He's talked about how Steam Train was his idea, and I'm sure he's had some lingering resentment from having his idea co-opted a bit. Seems like the new opening and changes to format would be a way of making him feel a bit more like the lead, give him a bit more credit for it. Maybe as a way of keeping him on.
>I've seen that picture a lot. No one really knows if it is them or not, because there's not really proof against it.
Bullshit. If you really are friends with Arin, you could tell by room/the walls if it's really them.
you're essentially pointing out an example of one person winning the lottery and making a career out of animating, coming from this field. which is good for him, but that doesn't mean that flash animators from newgrounds are the wave of the future. if the ONE SINGLE LONE most talented person in a field gets a career, and nobody else gets dick, it's not a smart field to dedicate yourself to.
no im asking whether or not Arin was on the receiving or giving end of the anal fucking. Steak isn't the right kind of meat im looking for here. for example, in one episode of Game Grumps Arin offered to sniff Jons smegma
could go either way, I guess. the intro is clearly more Ross-centric, but they did do a Rossless steamtrain. Iunno. I'd like to think it's my way, but it definitely could be yours.
I've never seen that wallpaper before, ever. I don't go deep into their house anyways, I like to give them some privacy!
Also, the room Suzy films in is not her actual room, she just films in there and put on some cheap bed.
He's definitely just saying that. I don't like "calling bullshit" on my own friends, but he probably did it just to slow the pot stirring.
It's hard to say. Arin really doesn't like talking about it. But i'd have to say he doesn't have any regrets. Arin meant alot more to Jon than Jon meant to Arin, and that's sort of where the problem lied.
By the way, when this post 404s i'm not going to make another, if anyone cared.
Barry. Arin wouldn't leave because it's his show, and Danny wouldn't because he wouldn't want to hurt Arin. I'm sure leaving has crossed Danny's mind before, but he won't say anything about it.
I'm going to assume that you're telling the truth because if you're not then that is seriously the most pathetic thing that any human being could ever do. This kind of drama interests me anyway.
Would you say that Arin and Jon were very good friends when they were doing Game Grumps together? Was some of it just acting or was all of it legitimate friendship?
Damn, Danny really does sound like a nice guy.
Tell me, why dont they just squash the beef?
Why keep this up? They obviously dont hate eachother enough to insult one another. And Jons a pretty open-minded guy
So why don't they just contact eachother and apologize, the internet(Ok their fans) think they're being childish
Also, if you're "trolling" at this point, something must be mentally wrong with you
to which Jon replied "I-if that's what you want senpai", after a thorough smegma smelling Arin took a few tentative licks of it and paused for a moment, this period of silence was ending with Arin saying "This tastes like Egoraptor"
Oh man this makes me remember this one time during the goof troop play through. Arin was shitting on Jon and Jon says something like "and to think I worshipped you", and Arin just kind of blows him off.
I know I'm just some anon here, but OP, would you be up for some further discussion outside of the thread? Not necessarily about what went down with Jon and Arin, but mainly about what motivates and inspires Jon. Yeah, it's a pretty pansy thing to say, but I idolize the guy, and I'd like to know what I can do to emulate some of the stuff he does.
I hope you're right. Ross is a pretty cool guy if you ask me. Apparently he's thinking about doing other stuff besides animating to make a living, really interested to see how that will turn out.
because even if you're not mad anymore it doesn't mean you'd want to make contact again, they're not family, it's not like making contact with your mum again even though you've hated and hated her for so long
;~;you're fine to just move on in a situation like that. I'd never go back, why? would things be any different? doubt it.
Arin probably thinks Jon is "immature" or something. I bet Arin fancies himself as a real responsible and level-headed adult while seeing Jon as that obnoxious friend who never wised up.
Maybe that's why Jon is still entertaining and Arin is dull as a post.
You're a faggot
And I think they should apologize for the internet drama, they dont have to see each other again, or contact eachother. But you dont go the rest of your life with that kind of shit hanging onto your chest when you can easily or atleast attempt to mend things.
Only women do stupid shit like that
No, this is Patrick. Anyway, Skraggy OD'd on adderall and viagra, after viciously trying to puncture my anus with his tongue we decided it was best to let him go. So we took him to the vet, said our goodbyes and had him euthanized.
im done answering questions everyone, goodnight.
You've asked me ALMOST everything I know so i'll just say the rest
Most everyone dislikes Suzy and thinks she's bad for Arin, Jon didn't like Suzy either.
Suzy has a twin sister, Jean Bug.
There WAS censorship of Jon's name. I know that, for a fact. I've overheard conversations about Jon that are pretty much like "Yeah, just throw in a subtle reference to Jon so people think we're still friends".
Also, Suzy pitched about 3 ideas for new shoes but they were all about shoes or getting views and money.
There was one point where Suzy wanted to start a show where Arin and the rest look at viral videos and talk about them, like Ray William Johnson.
Suzy is very demaning, and full of herself. She gets fed up when she doesn't get what she wants. It was her idea to put her on the show, and her idea to make Arin come on her channel so she could get more views.
There was a falling out, anyone denying that has something wrong with them.
Jon didn't leave just to make more JonTron. I mean, that's obvious, though.
Arin would occasionally list off candidates for replacement whenever his co-host would even bring up something close to leaving. He did this a lot to Jon and sometimes to Danny and Ross, even Barry.
Jon sees most of your tweets about him, and Arin sees most of your tweets about Jon.
And yes, they do deliberately try to not acknowledge Jon on the show.
Jon's girlfriend does not like Suzy.
None of the grumps, excluding Barry, like the subreddit.
Arin tried to get a few more people as his co-host before Danny, but they said no.
Anyone want anymore information? I'm tired and want to get back to work.
I totally believe this some of this shit. Like Jon being stuck behind a NDA, but taking it in stride because he's still getting compensation of some sort. Of course he wants everyone to know that Arin was an asshole, but he can tell them later, after he's on his feet in New York and seeing an income flow similar to Game Grumps except from his own channel.
I also believe Ross has thoughts on leaving because he's bothered that a lot of his fans aren't familiar with his animations. And that Danny's such a chill guy that he's always trying to help a brother out.
You might be taking everyone in this thread for a ride, but hey, at least you can spin a believable tale that seems true to their nature.
If the falling out was just over steam train. Then why have the hardly acknowledged Jon and even gone so far to censor his name? There has to be something else or does Arin just hate Jon ow and so he pushes his views on everyone thus there is no mention of Jon by anyone.
>This is the guy who is/was friends with Jon and Arin and i'm here again to answer questions about whatever you want Grumps related.
Okay, let's start with a simple one. When are you going to taking your shit-eating youtube attention whores and fuck off of /v/?
Nope. I got into this knowing how delusional the GG subreddit is, and i'm prepared to stick by it.
Oney, Zach, some people from Continue?!, PBG, some NG game devs, lesser known.
Quite a few lesser known NG animators
Because he doesn't care enough about Jon to do that.
I wouldn't go as far as to say that, but she's not exactly very nice to me or others.
Ok. I'll bite because this has bugged me. Is the way they act to Ross a joke or do the generally act like that towards him? Yeah he is excitable but even jokingly the way the rip on him is just mean. Like does it not bug him or what is the deal?
Last one because I forgot to mention this.
They actually fuck with Ross, alot. There's times where he's playing a game and gets into it and someone will say "oh god ross you smell like shit" for no reason and Ross will get this confused, sad look on his face but they keep on and doing it.
Okay that was the actual last one, but only because I left it out..
"my front page"
>What makes you think you are entitled to have exactly what you want to see on the front page? Everyone likes something different, or wishes to discuss something different, if thei isn't your topic of choice, then scroll past or filter. No need to shit up a thread with your entitlement issues.
>I'm telling you guys what I know. I know alot, but there's shit not even TotalBiscuit knows. Alot of shit was buried so deep, and it's just waiting to come out.
>Yeah, Ross is debating leaving.
I don't want to talk shit about Arin, 'cause, hey, he's a good guy. But he does a lot of stuff that affects others, but he regrets it in the future.
Okay, I'm really curious about this. Some massive shit went down like you claimed, that's obvious, but it seems like you're trying to paint all parties involved in a decent light. I'm not doubting you, and I don't need to know what happened if it truly is going to all come out like you say it is, but if that shit is as biblical as you seem to be portraying it, someone, somewhere along the line had to be an utter asshole, who was that person, OP?
>I'm telling you guys what I know. I know alot, but there's shit not even TotalBiscuit knows. Alot of shit was buried so deep, and it's just waiting to come out.
Also, why would TB know more about this than anyone else? I remember that tweet he wrote to the effect of "I know shit, but it's buried." but beyond that what's his involvement?
TB is deeper into Polaris than most, someone close to the incident probably confided in him because he's a big name, he can't afford to tell people and jeopardize everything.
Money turns people into real shitheads.
Oh shit, ya got me broooooo
Must've been so high I wasn't thinking str8 brah
Alright guys, ask me anything and I'll repsond with the total truth
I'm just staying till this blunt runs cold tho
Same thing here dude
And when I wake up, it seriously takes me a couple hours to figure out that it never happened and then I get genuinely sad
I'm aware it's completely pathetic, but it's not something I think I can control at this point
If he really did see it as easy money from the beginning, then that really sucks. The first few months of Grumps really did feel like the friendship was genuine, and that they were just doing it as a side project.
well how would you feel if some silly as fuck side project blew up in such a way that it would actually finance you, your girlfriend, a house, vehicles, basically your whole life in relative wealth?
You wouldn't exactly be willing to part with that dosh train.
I keep telling myself not to fall for this shit...
>Spaz only makes 200 a month
As someone who's been watching his shit since the sonichu era, holy shit.
Tell him I hope he keeps going and gets more soon. I honestly admire the guy, and would love a chance to get to know him at some point.
I'm probably too late but just in case
What terms are barry and jon on? They were childhood friends before game grumps, and now they haven't had public contact with each other since the breakup
Hide Attention Whore threads.
Do not reply to Attention Whore posts.
Ignore Attention Whore posters.
I find it hilarious how there are some people on /v/ who actually believe you.
People really underestimate how much lore Arin, Danny, and Jon give per Game Grumps episode. And it's not simple lore. It's very nuanced lore that easily gives rise to extrapolation and more lore.
If I was I forensic psychologist, I could easily make an autobiography of each cast member just from GameGrumps alone.
>this whole thread
Not OP but I'm really good friends with Arin. The reason Jon left is because Jon raped Suzy and Arin put Jon in the hosptial and told him that if he didn't leave California immediately he would kill Jon. Jon has always been a coward so he left that night, hence the impromptu breakup.
No shit it's not ricepirate. It's Zanman72. OP said in last thread that he was not an animator and that Airin and Jon were both in his videos before and that he wasn't very big.
>Game Grumps is the precursor of the alien invasion
The big draw of 4chan is that anonymity is the default, so people like not having to put a name to the post or opinion so conversation doesn't get muddled in, say, who's fucking who or who cheated on who for personal gain.
>I'm tired and want to get back to work.
>back to work
maybe i don't get 4chan. ok seriously... back to work
>back to work
are you mocking us or are you giving us a hint here?
Hey OP, can you give Dan my number?
I think he's pretty qt 3.14
Why'd Suzy get fat? Does the house have a minimum weight they had to make up for when John left?
I don't think the show is shit
It's not like it stops me from doing things that are social or don't involve video games, it just feels pathetic when stuff like that happens
I'm not going to cut something out of my life that I've watch for 2 years because of a small downside
I don't care that people say she's got a fucked up face, I'd still wreck her anus until she had to have an artificial shitbox installed just to keep from soiling herself.
As everyone's careers are being held by the balls by Polaris, they literally *can't* say anything negative about the situation, as Polaris/Maker Studios is part of the big Zoe coverup.
>That slight underbutt in the second photo.
damn i dig suzy's body in these pics. why did her face have to be so fucking ugly? she looks like she barely healed up from being in a gasoline fire
are you joking? because there are like 200 such shops already
Why emphasize the fact that you're unfit with that much ill-fitted layering?
She must be wearing those boots for their good defense, cause they sure as hell aren't fashionable.
two sets were found:
Yes, in America, they would consider this photoshop edit perfect. It would be printed in magazines and people who believe it was an actual person instead of a brushstroke wearing clothes.
Arin - you are a giant faggot and nobody likes you
Jon - love ya miss ya, I support you are your echs
Dan - I have no problem with you as a person, but you just don't fit the show. Go make some REAL music and get away from Arin "giant faggot" Hanson
Ross - You are a non entity
Barry - You are the only one I feel is a normal human being, and you are the only one who isn't ass at video games
Suzy - fuck off and never come back
Suzy is the most obvious beard on the planet. From watching videos where they interact I honestly don't see how they would "love" each other. He seems like a "so deep in the closet I make jokes about being gay" homosexual and she is a high maintenance fane leech.
>Yeah, Ross is debating leaving.
>I don't want to talk shit about Arin, 'cause, hey, he's a good guy. But he does a lot of stuff that affects others, but he regrets it in the future.
>latest video doesn't have Ross
>Ross is appearing less and less
>when he does he doesn't care
Really nigga? They alternate between ASL and ALS all throughout the video. If you can't even get that joke then I'm not suprised you found it cringy.
It closes out with "ALS WELL THAT ENDS WELL" on the screen. And who doesn't find Edward Snowden and Casey Anthony nominations hilarious.
If it truly isn't ricepirate, it has to be El-Cid. They've all got projects to do, and Arin no longer has the itch to animate. They've all surpassed Arin in terms of animation and it eats at Arin everyday.
"Hi guys! We'd like to wish Ross the best of luck! Here's an anotation for you to click and subscribe to Ross' channel if you haven't already! There you'll find some sweet ass animations and iiiidunno maaaybe you'll see some MORE animations soon by Ross."
*Ross' goodbye to his new steam train fans*
Some video criticizing her how she's a terrible person in general, how she pushes the staff around, how she constantly says shit about Jon since he leave cause he was sick of her sticking her nose in everything
Ego getting married to her is what killed the show
The "Egoraptor is officially that guy" was a joke video that featured clips from some Jon, Suzy and Grump videos that was edited into looking as if Jon left Game Grumps because Arin started dating Suzy over Jon.
I'll have more respect for the guy I he bails. He'd be the Arin we'd all like to see. A guy you still made cartoons and loved doing it. Rather than a douche who plays games all day..real busy.
not mocking, i just generally am working on shit. aside from rl job and streamwave, a yt vid for dark souls (last one) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RZOELMScOrc .. but no, not mocking
I admit I like Danny, but Danny is like that kind of person who always has to have a story on hand cause he's afraid people won't like him otherwise
Its like playing as Ellis in L4D2, he's fucking fun to be around with his Keith stories, but eventually while you still like the guy you're like "Ok we get it keith"
Jontron is too good for Arin. Even if you don't like Jon's videos or sense of humor, you have to appreciate the fact that he is a pretty cool dude. Arin is coming off more and more as a total fucking douche.
What? Don't tell lies.
This is the video:
Its just a joke video about how Jon had a homogay hardon for Arin and Arin broke his heart. It only vaguely had anything to do with suzy, she just hulked out about it and then cried when people told her to fuck off.
Jon has his head up his ass and has some pretty severe nostalgia issues, which is surprising cause he's in his what, early 20's?
The reason everyone likes Danny is cause he's near his 40's and has actually lived life which is why he actually understands how the world works, if anybody who I hope stays on the show to milk it is Danny
And you know, Next Car Game video where Arin spends the whole time bashing the game, and then fucking up with the fuck the Takedown meter thing was, which is FUCKING BAFFLING cause I knew in 1 second WTF it was
He'll be like Jon, he'll push out animations very frequently. And they'll be pretty good too.
His animation is actually pretty good despite being on the show, unlike Arin.
BY THE WAY, you guys realize some shill is probably screencapping this thread to read mean 4chan comments out during PAX right? They do it sometimes.
What I've noticed now after Arin doing GG, I can no longer trust his Sequilitis series anymore considering Arin can't fucking read one line in a video game casually. It's almost enraging to see Arin be so bad at video games sometimes.
Still seems pretty fishy if you ask me the OP did not anything ever about RicePirate but evey other animator and look at the last words of the Twitter, and OP. It's gotta be him or the guy he worked
with I mean why would he say anything about a thread on /V/ unless he didn't want any trouble
i see. well either way, if developments in the internet /v/ journalism sector of the internet develop I'll definitely be checking in. you guys (sans straight-up-instagator / haters ) have been an awesome force of bringing things to light.
During PAX some e-celebs like to read out mean 4chan(or just mean comments in general) posts and joke around.
Like a roast, almost.
I can't find a video, but they've definitely done it at least once.
Yeah GG killed his entire ability to be taken seriously
I mean fuck, remember Castlevania vs Super Castlevania where he bitched about how awesome Castlevania was because it was HARD because you had to be dedicated to your jumps and shit
Then him and Jon sit down to play CV3 and say the game is basically BROKEN cause they're so bad at it
Well if you are indeed rice pirate, tell all the grumps they're doing great
Oh and if we're forced to have suzy on the show, would it hurt so much if she actually sounded into the games she was playing, you know, some emotion?
I'm not talking captain kirk here, but something higher than a vulcan
Danny is good also as he is naive with games but he enjoys them.
Just watch him play Wii U Mario. He is not very good but it is fun to watch him play. All the comments that are shown on miiverse even support him more anyway because Arin meh/annoying.
I'm not lying.
I hate myself for not favoriting the video, but they have done it.
Jon participated and read our comments on him being a big faggot.
But now he'll have lots of lovey-dovey messages
So you agree on the whole corrupt journalism thing? Glad to see more people are acknowledging it. I know you try to avoid it on twitter because of friends and all around drama, but you, Zach, and Jon have been awesome throughout this whole thing.
To prove this is you, can you tweet something only we can know it's you? Like a phrase
Everyone liked Jon, but liked as in "Yeah he's Ok, made a few bad videos but OK"
Then this shit with Zoe happened, and how the reason he was mad at her before was because she tried that shit on him and he wouldn't take it, and at the time he stayed way way way out of it.
But then the SJW's came after Jon, and boom, now I fucking love the man
He doesn't belong on a "gaming" channel.
>I was high
>I was in this orgy
>I was high in this orgy
>stereotypical NY accent
>faux philosophical musings of a druggy
>stereotypical Jewish accent
>what's a GBA?
YES. Thank you, I'm not crazy and didn't imagine that.
Though I said that, I don't think they would deliberately make threads to fish for angry comments.
At least I hope so.
that video is still funny as fuck
That's cause danny actually grew up with said games, so he's good at gaming in general
I mean we fucking joke about it but modern console gaming actually has lowered gamers ability to play games well
Well, maybe its cause I'm 37 but fuck, 4chan to me is no different than anywhere else on the internet.
etc etc etc, all of them have great people, and all of them have great assholes as well
But...that's why I like him. He's experienced a bit more. Saw more things then the rest of them. During his Katamari Damacy playthrough with Arin he talked about a time he witnessing some guys getting into a machete fight. That's not something you see playing vidya.
Why do people still care about these clowns? Don't tell me you guys still watch Youtube personalities?
>They all get visibly butthurt as the panel goes on
I don't care what anyone says. That panel was great and I hope they do another one like it.
tfw no lp channel with Projared/PBG
>his feet in New York and seeing an income flow similar to Game Grumps except from his own channel
Unless he releases videos twice a week that ain't happening. Did he at least start up a patreon?
Not really. There's actually a few episodes around... Valentine's Day. One is her playing Lion King, with invulnerability turned on, possible set to easy - a game that she's supposed to be "incredible" at. Another was a Street Fighter puzzle game I think. I think there's a few others like Mario Party.
whether it's Zoe or not, i can tell for sure that the online media is out of fucking control... the coincidence is hard to ignore. and even if i didn't believe all the aristocrat info, the response from the online media has been insanely biased. i don't think i should need to make a habit of "proving" my identity but ... https://twitter.com/RicepirateMick/status/503432379860783104
I'm so fucking tired of this shit why do women think just because they have a vagina that they're God's fucking gift to gaming. Holy shit.
Sorry that the majority of the famous gamers of my sex are fucking retarded
Dan is more of a yes man honestly. And it's not necessarily a bad thing. He just doesn't have any strong opinions of his own.
It's why I still prefer Jon over Dan. But I guess because Jon didn't blindly agree with everything that ~lord egoraptor~ said, it obviously lead to a split in the friendship.
And it's also why Dan was the ideal replacement. He won't challenge Arin.
I really think Dan is the most humble guy on that show, but he doesn't know much about video games. Except for what Arin forces him to believe as fact.
Iunno, it's sad is all.
The man is great, his content is great, and he doesn't let GG slow him down or get to his head.
He just shouldn't be playing video games for a living.
I saw an anon a few days ago (who wasn't claiming to know them) who said the whole steam train thing and it was a total speculation he was making.
You're probably that same anon or simply fantasizing with something someone else guessed.
I knew Jon's land lord's brother's ex-wife's deceased dog. AMA about why Jon moved to New York and I'll answer
This is beyond Zoe now. We're all just exhausted of people being too cozy gaining favors from each other. Thanks for providing proof and good luck to your future endeavors man
Sex sells, and gaming is a business. More importantly, that's not changing anytime soon. But like >>259533213 anon showed an example of, the great gamers of your sex aren't in the spotlight.
I've thought this as well especially with posting about how he might be leaving to pursue his animation channel more.
I like Ross enough to watch whatever he posts to his channel even if it's not animation content
The weird think about this is that I barely surf YouTube and only watch Grumps with my husband so he'll stop nagging me to watch it. So I don't know who the fuck Rice Pirate is and now out of sheer curiosity I'm gonna have to check him out. Fucking virals.....
I actually wanted to know if in that one Table Flip episode, that was really Jon who was playing that guy in the hat and cloak and whatever.
I mean it looked like him from the back and sounded like him but confirmation would be cool.
Still It's has shown the light on the corruption of Gameing Journalism, This isn't about some dumb Hippocrate who suck off five guys, It's about These Fuckers Takeing in Favors to push someone's agenda.
Also thanks for takeing time to do an AM A about Game Grumps RicePirate
I believe all of this, as I've kinda picked up on most of these kinds of vibes on my own. I'm a GG fan, but you know, the subreddit is toxic, and I don't tell people that I'm a fan IRL because I don't want them to think I'm some fucking inept SJW/unfunny 12 year old retard. I've been a fan of egoraptor for a very long time, since MGA on NG. I've considered him my hero because I subconsciously emulate his style of humor and really admire his work ethic. I do however, question his character.
This makes me think GG will implode in the near future, and honestly, I hope it happens. it's had its run, and I seriously just want them to stick to animations or music respectively. I wish there was a more profitable way of doing something like that, but I don't care. These let's play channels are trite, and GG has been the only good one so far, but has also become very stale for long periods of time.
I always thought JON was the asshole, however, whether or not any of this is true, it's made me re-think their true character.
Never liked suzy. She's cute, but she's like a sociopath. She seems super manipulative, uninterested, angry, and 100% a carbon-copy of Yoko-ono. She hates it when people say that. whatever.
I'm tired, but goddammit. This just makes me pissed off. I will rant, and nobody will care, because GG is already a joke to most on the internet, but fuck man, they've always managed to bring a smile to my face, but not as much since jon left.
Maybe I shouldn't care. Fuck it.
like i said, and YOU said, this is beyond the whole zoe-fiasco. but there are too many sites and too many people with connections to the industry that support them to say anything either against the journalists that report on it or otherwise. Again, despite what's been posted from either side, I can't claim to know the actual facts, but the response from the online media has been so completely damning... the one-sided obvious-bias fact-bankrupt way they've been presenting it... sorry i've been drinking and need to log off ... but in a time and place where journalism finally has a venue to be open and honest and accountable not to major outlets, but to their readers.. this shit just irks the fuck out of me. TLDR done ranting night
Aren't you risking your relationship with them by openly badmouthing them?
Precisely. What's really fucking lame is that no one can publicly take a stance on this entire thing. You saw Zach's long conversation with Neil G. No one can criticize anyone anymore because it's taboo. If this was fucking happening on the New York Times, people would go apeshit. We need outlets like 4chan and twitter to hide anonymity, it's so vital for social media.
Anyways take care man, have a good night
I guess I'll have to make a twitter and ask him tomorrow.
He made a video talking about this very subject, but yeah I recommend getting twitter if you have questions. I use it all the time for that and it's easy to make connections.
Ricepirate is awesome/
>People are believing this nigger for some reason
the media calls the "online mob" anonymous. and i get why that's important...to have the ability to remain anon. but when sites throw fuel their way, they'll cherry-pick shit and ignore the actual issue and use those "hateful/bigotry/sexist/etc" comments as fuel. there's plenty of non-extreme issues to create a dialogue with them with ... and sadly, from my attempts... the more reasonable you try to be, the less they care. but if you give them less ammo and more reasonable discussion points eventually they have to address those right? or at the very least they have less shit to link to enforce their stereotypes of the online community.
please fuck off you stupid lying sack of excuse for a human being
it's hard to be a terrible person by /v/'s standards but damn op seriously.
it concerns me that people are still
>m-m-muh dad knows Nintendo
I agree I always like watching his stuff and hearing what he has to say. I was just curious about the state of newgrounds considering a lot of the older NG animators don't really post there any more. Or at least it seems like they don't.
Fuck anon, I feel you. When Jon left I think video games died for me. Coupled with SJW news reporting, shit video games, and a new generation of consoles that I cared nothing about, I don't really care about video games anymore, nor play them. Why do I come here, /v/? Is this what being an adult feels like?
Hah well ain't that some shit! While we're talking about this subject... Look what happened to the indiegogo campaign to help promote women in gaming. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/this-campaign-has-been-closed--2#home
All because the "online mob" is associated with a cause.
This is exactly is /wrong/ with the internet right now.
newgrounds (as it still exists) is always a great way to get some genuine feedback on your work. Tom has been working hard to get NG to be a real competitor to other online content sources ... yt has the benefit of universal accessiblity, but the concentration of creators on NG leads to some pretty helpful criticism (for the most part). short answer: it's a great place to start, and definitely make some connections/relationships and depending on how yt continues could be a better venue for animators in the long run (seriously need to get off line, but awesome to see thoughtful comments/questions on 4chan)
Couldn't focus on the work, so I guess I will answer one more question:
It's because of Suzy. She's been driving Arin crazy about the pregnancy and he hans't gotten any sleep because of it. He's been having ragefits more and more recently almost to the point he was smashing things in the house. Arin might be a control freak now, but he wasn't before. It was Suzy, sorry for the cliche phrase, who drove him crazy with power.
Adding onto my comment: I believe someone outside has accessed their indiegogo page and not closed it. There are people that are supporting Zoe and Zoe herself saying that they shouldn't be working for free which I'm sure you've seen, now her supporters probably have accessed their page.
This is truly the darkest timeline
Thanks man I think I'll put of my focus there for now, you have a good night!
>yfw this has been Suzy the whole time and she's spun one hell of a cover story.
The thing is, majority of 4chan is fine. People think /b/ = 4chan, when that simply isn't true. 4chan's a great platform if used correctly like you're doing now. I know you mentioned before that you don't know much about 4chan, but this thread is probably an accurate portrayal of the best and worst parts of it.
anyone believing an ounce of this shit is on another level of fucking stupid
Jon murdering everyone when?
hmm, oh really now? and how about some evidence for your crediblilty?
I mean, after all, no one on 4chan would be a low life lying piece of shit so desperate for attention they turn to slandering "ecelebrities" on /v/
SERIOUSLY GO OUTSIDE
I'm glad you answered my question so concisely
