    I bought 2 games because I watched you guys enjoy it. I didn't enjoy the games half as much as you guys did. I did though enjoy them. I also felt like i owed it to the game makers.

    It's not threatening suicide to get nudes but I do have a former friend that used to threaten suicide to try and win his girlfriend's back. He'd go into elaborate and down right creepy detail as to how he'd do it to make them feel the most shame possible about it. He is a good looking and highly charismatic guy so his actions seemed driven from a mental health disorder and a need for control. He still talks to me regularly and at this point must have attempted suicide something in the range of at least 20 times if he is to be believed. It's a cry for attention and total manipulation of the ones that care about you. Mr. Looking for Nudes through faking suicide is much the same and far from alone in his actions. While not organized as a group men like him are out there and I dare say they are dangerous.

    I agree with Lawrence that the dude faking a suicide for nudes is nettin' much harder.  It may not be the Internet that anyone wants to see, but I'm pretty sure I've seen that exact scenario play out on a forum before.  Threatening suicide over an Internet argument has to be some sort of Godwin-level of idiocy, and the shitty fake "drunk typing" just puts the cherry on top.


    I think that a cult based around a 20-year-old cartoon character is definitely a better thing than this guy's behavior, and the former should be encouraged over the latter, but it is FAR more Internet to fake suicide to try and get nudes.  Y'all failed this one.

    I think this is a good idea from twitch, depending on how their refund service may work. you can only realistically be burned by a streamer once before you smarten up and lose trust in their opinion. However, it will probably be a rare occurrence where someone shows a game in a fraudulent manner, possibly covering up bugs or working in tandem with the publisher to push sales and if there is a refund policy then I won't mind it. I think it would be a good idea for indies who can now have streamers work free promotion and sales, but also be motivated to look for good indie games to sell because competition over big games is going to mean low sales, people will have bought them already or prefer using other methods. But a relatively unheard of game that you get to see for yourself before buying? Sounds like a good thing, except when streamers begin to sell crappy pre-Alpha games because the indie publisher offered kickbacks. So long as there's refunds though this shouldn't be a problem.

    If there is a way for me as a viewer to know that they get paid for each sale, then its ok. The same concept at paid stuff on youtube.

    I don't see the fucking problem. People watch streamers they like and trust. I would not care if Lawrence made money off the weeb games he plays.

    I agree with Elyse. If you are dumb enough to buy a game because of something one twitch streamer said you have no right to bitch and moan if the game is bad or you don't like it.

    In regards to streamers getting money from game sales I agree that this has been a long time coming. Streamers/Youtubers have been selling games indirectly for years, it's about time they got rewarded for it. Hell, I bought EDF thanks to you guys and I'm having SO much fun with. Thanks!

    The beginning of this podcast made me google "Closer Movie Anal". When the search returned an XVideos search of "Close Anal", I stopped looking. I have no interest in this movie anymore.

    The Dude threatening(?) suicide for nudes is aswell my impression of the internet.

    Being a Brony online your pretty reserved amongst other people not sharing your intrest, so this dude trying to get a fap material is definetly more HardNetting. But your arguments are kind of true, gadget kult is kinda more likly a thing originated from the internet than a dude blackmailing nudes.

    One thing I noticed on my time on this world is:

    Facking Happyness is REALLY hard for non major actors, so not declaring your paid from a company and also dont like the gameplay is hard to hide, but genuine happiness is something I like in games and even IF it is SHIT I like getting others too play it with me, so we can have fun togehter, if I fall through a wall or something like this.


    (e.g. I played GTA5 Online and was able to fuck around with a Titan before they closed the lid on the back... Worse games are also fun if you KNOW they are shit and you can exprerience together insteadt of alone)
