    You guys don't need to address all the issues people have each week. Most of them are just vocal minorities, let them deal with it

    @SirLarr is a genuine person. I keep seeing shit thrown his way directed to him, but people are too ignorant to see him in a genuine state. They just stick around to see him act flustered.


    Keep being you man, you are too damn great.

    Don't you DARE talk shit about the Creative Zen. That thing was amazing, it was an mp3 player and it could hold photos, and it had a microphone. It was perfect.

    I totally agree that you guys shouldn't be pressured to weigh in on issues and pass judgements. The mob mentality that people on the internet and media in general legitimately pisses me off and I always love when people speak out against it. Plus, I watch RT content to get away from how god awful the world is for a while.

    On the whole advice thing, I've watched some of lawrence's streams. He asked for advice multiple times when streaming overwatch? so if you want someone to blame for your band of merry helpers...

    -

    But seriously though insulting the people engaging with your content makes you guys come off as assholes, that is If you aren't fully explaining what exactly is annoying you. We don't have the knowledge that you guys have. Like why is it bad these people are giving you advice, can you just not take criticism ?


    "get off my channel" becomes an insult to everyone unless you specify what exactly you don't like. Are these people being mean spirited, is it harsh criticism? all this does is discourage the nice commenter as they, myself included, feel like our engagement is unwanted. The bad ones don't give two fucks.

      I think it's more that Adam doesn't want people trying to give him advice for FH content on his personal channel. That's what the site is for and his YT channel is his personal projects.

      I was more making a point about how lack of clarity can cause people to be miss-understood. I'm not saying he is wrong, but if you don't communicate well (which on a podcast is the most important thing) making fun of your community is a dangerous game.

    You know, I've been thinking about the sort-of tradition in Dude Soup where the guys typically play some game with what is effectively (and has been explained as much as) background noise. It seems to get in the way of discussion on occasion, since whoever it is that's playing has to focus on the game rather than the discussion, even if they have something they'd like to input on.

    Have you guys ever considered doing something kinda like Cinematech back during the (good) G4 days on in the background instead? Maybe use some footage you guys record when not doing full video content, or unedited versions of some content videos; something simple that doesn't require too much preparation, just to put on in the background so that all of you can contribute to the discussion evenly?

    Tragic death, stupid terrorism, blatant racism and shameless finger-pointing, and that has been the program for the last week on French TV, and it re-appears every time something bad happens in France now. It's just depressing. At least I'm glad there's a place where I can just laugh a little and escape all of that crap.


    I also think it's very hypocritical that, a year and a half after the attack against Charlie Hebdo which triggered a whole "freedom of speech is sacred" thing, we're back to saying "oh but you can't say that because we don't like it".

    I really think that Adam could benefit from playing Pokemon GO. I'm not sure how much of his personality on FH content is actually him, and how much he is playing it up, but he seems incredibly depressed, like ALL the time. It's kind of a bummer man. Even if that only 20% you, I think you need more vitamin D, you're kinda pale anyway. James and Bruce always seem pretty happy, even when they're shitting on things, but Adam is exhaustingly misanthropic. It's OK to be silly and do silly things. That actually sounded like something Adam would say, so take your own advice man.


    Bruce, I think your insistence that celebrities that die from drug overdoses deserve to be mocked because they killed themselves is a bit superficial. I used to react in a similar manner, but I realized that this type of reaction was mostly a way for me to distance myself from the pain of accepting that some peoples existence is tragic, and it's really quite sad when people die from drug addiction, or even actual suicide. I think that anyone, even celebrities, who die from a medical issue, like and addiction or mental health issue, deserves at the very least your indifference, and in reality probably your sympathy.


    Because I know that there is no transfer of tone through text, something that Bruce pointed out in this very podcast, I would just like to add that I am a huge fan and I watch literally ALL of your content, so you know that any discussion/criticism/engagement is coming from a place of love. Thanks guys.

    Pokemon GO works great for people in large cities but for people in towns it is pretty bad. You can walk down 1 street in a large city and could catch like 5 or 6 different pokemon. In a town you could walk down a looooooong ass street and you get a couple weedle's and a pidgey. Regardless of the issues with servers and the app itself, pokemon aren't plentiful enough in non super populated areas.

    I think James said something about how he wished this show wasn't about just addressing things, and I understand. I get it that you guys want to make sure as many people as possible are not upset but you are never actually doing anything wrong. If you want to keep address things for people that's fine and I will still watch it, and I may not agree with you sometimes on what you say or reasoning you have, but at the end of the day i trust that you guys are always good people or never meant any harm so just know that you don't always have to address things.


    Hope this helps you guys and doesn't come off as snobby or something, I love what you do and just want you to love what you do.

    I definitely agree with what James is saying to a certain extent, but I think, like many things, Pokemon Go is something you can use to be more connected with the world around you, or you can use it to drown out the world and just focus on catching digital animals. Both, in my opinion, can have good and bad aspects. At a base level, though, I think the simple fact that it gets people outside is its redeeming factor. Yes it's objectively dumb, but out of the objectively dumb things I do, virtually none of them involve getting outside and being active. I'm somebody who deals with a lot of anxiety, and just generally being in my head too much. Running around catching Pokemon lets me get out of my head long enough to actually enjoy the things that I'm doing, and so far I'm loving it. I've met at least a couple dozen people, and I learned that the park near my apartment does Shakespeare in the park virtually every night during the summer, so I've managed to catch a couple plays while I take a break from catching Pokemon. So yeah, it is just a dumb game where you run around and catch virtual stuff and then you can make it fight and whatnot, but most of the things we love are pretty dumb when we get down to it.

    I think Pokemon Go's player base will drop to at least half very soon. Yeah, people said Minecraft was a fad, but players came and went and while current players are still going strong, it's not nearly as big as it was in 2011-2013.


    Then again, Overwatch's player base has gone nowhere.


    Also Gnocchi is pronounced NYO-kee. Like Bologna and Lasagna, "gn" in Italian is pronounced "ny"

      That's due to a functional problem with the RT website. I'm requesting a fix and hopefully we're working it out.
