    I love your content, and I love game attacks. But they are the reason I discovered you. Sorry but it sounds like you are treating them like an evil empire.

    Think the adpocalypse outlines how out of touch marketers are becoming, the issue with long established companies they are ran by people who are unaware of new trends and attitudes among audiences. So even if a company has a marketing team aware of modern consumers they will be blocked by higher ups afraid of new markets they don't understand. It's almost as if businesses are afraid of the vocal minority offended by everything, when in reality they are not a reflection of real consumers and real attitudes towards today's taboos.

      Or...they saw an opportunity to renegotiate the amount they were paying Youtube for ads and took advantage of it...

    Still find it weird it's been 1 year since Joel left, feels only like a year ago when the first dude soup podcast was released yet alone all that's happened in-between, crazy.

    I read a couple of the Witcher novels (The Last Wish and The Blood of Elves) and I did thoroughly enjoy them. I read The Last Wish prior to purchasing and playing The Witcher Enhanced Edition. I purchased the paperback of The Blood of Elves after beating the game to tide me over until the Witcher 2 was released. I didn't continue reading after that. Partially because I got hip deep in the Song of Ice and Fire series. Partially I could not find paperbacks of any of the books other than the two I had read at Hastings or Barnes and Noble. That's when I found out: oh right the English translations had yet to be printed. Between that time and now I was made aware of the striking similarities between Geralt of Rivia and Elric of Melnibone. Sapkowski worked at the company that localized the Elric novels into Polish and to a certain degree Sapkowski blatantly plucked elements from Moorcock's characters (Elric and Geralt both look exactly the same and share the same nickname "The White Wolf"). Moorcock did sue Sapkowski for plagiarism, but the suit got thrown out. To me personally I find there is enough difference that I can see why the suit never got traction. Even still I'll probably read the rest of Elric's novels before finishing up the Witcher. That way I can say I only supported a potential plagiarist after I read the works the Slav stole from.

    I found out about Funhaus after you joined RT as did many I bet that watch on this site....So go right ahead and work with them as much as possible. But I understand those who didn't find out about FH through RT might be skidish about it. But also should try to open up to the idea.

    happy that this episode finally isn't about youtube as much as the other ones. the old podcasts were dope when they were about games and entertainment, not about another channels drama that has no relation to rooster teeth.

    Settle in for a story.


    I have been a fan of you guys since back at IG, and you have helped me through major, crippling depression. Last year, while attending high school I had the massive Panic Attack and was rushed to the emergency room. While sitting in the emergency room I watched an old Dude Soup Post show, one where we gave advice about someone going through depression. And it helped me realized that I was depressed, and My parents and I went and got help.


    I am about to finish my first year of college and owe you guys so much. I have had minor anxiety attacks throughout this year, and watching you guys has helped me through it. Anytime I feel it coming on, I would watch a Dude Soup or Post Show because watching you guys be you, no bits or shticks, has helped ground me.


    I know you guys have said that you don’t like asking the community for money, but I feel that I owe it to you. (Already having YouTube Red and First) If you ever decide that you need to, I would kickstart or patreon or whatever it is.


    I’m sure that I’m not the only one who feels this way. I just want you guys to keep being you.


    Thank you.

    I'm only 15 minutes in, but I wanted to say, I never watch the podcasts, it's just not my thing, but as soon as I seen Joel, I had to watch it, and I also want to say this, to the fans that hate them having guests, shame on you. I didn't even know Steven worked at SF until I seen his vlogs, and I wouldn't have seen his vlogs if not for FunHaus, what's wrong with helping people out and having cool people over?

    It's not an issue if Spoole shows up randomly for a video and Q&A, but god forbid we get an outsider to come and try and mingle with the cool kids... y'all are the worst bullies.  angry

    I only knew that the Witcher had a book series because of the games. Now I've read them all and thoroughly enjoyed them. It's a shame that the author is salty about it, since the games definitely brings more popularity to the book series.

    Are you kidding? I only bought The Witcher books because of the games! I'm well fucking aware that the games were based on the books, and that was a big reason I bought the books. Fortunately, I can appreciate art no matter its source, but I know that if I couldn't, Andrzej Sapkowski, you would have lost one of your new customers WHICH GAMING HAS BROUGHT TO YOU because of your remarks. 


    Not a great business plan, m8.

    Watching all this content about FH and finally becoming a First member after holding out for so long, I begin to feel like I identify very well with each of your personalities.  Then when someone leaves the cast it feels like a dear roommate moving out.  BUT then I imagine running into one you lovely individuals and I catch a short breath of anxiety; the 4th wall no longer protecting me.  Now I'm fearful of running into one of you and not knowing what to do....with my hands for instance...what do I do with my hands!?

    I was watching how-to Videos about Horizon Zero dawn and there was an AD but its wasn't really AD it was just a clip from someone's Twitch stream that they had put up as an AD.


    Dude was screaming at in mic some pretty intense stuff... that skip ad button couldn't come soon enough - but it was the first time I started to see why people get mad about inappropriate ADs running on certain videos - I would not want a kid to see that " AD ".

    In case anyone was curious you can actually witness a home invader get scared off during a Benjamin Bennett video. You can see this here. Later in the same video you can see our meditating hero completely un-phased by a fly on his face

    My guess would be that the Witcher author is simply afraid that young people are dismissing his books as novelisation of the games, I would be a little upset if my original content was dismissed as low level adaption. Maybe thats not what he's saying but thats how I took it, maybe he's just a poop.

    I looked up the WItcher books on goodreads and they're all pretty positively reviewed. I've never read any of them, but it seems like the majority of people who read the author enjoy it. It's too bad he's a salty old son of a bitch.

    On the transcendental point, I had so many games as a kid that had super sparse narratives, lots of turn based strategy like FF: Tactics, XCOM, Disgaea etc. and as a kid I created these narratives for more or less nameless background characters. It wasn't like an active thing, I didn't take notes or anything like that, but in my mind all these characters that weren't given stories by the creators had a story that I had just made in the void and that actually somewhat affected the way I played. I think lots of great video games can make a 'potential story' from a bare bones narrative (the good guys fight the bad guys in x universe) and a void that can be filled in by the player.
