    To Lawrence: get checked out. Seriously. I was only an army Medic and EMT but any mass like that and what sounds like some stuff not working in your gi tract definitely needs to get looked at. 20-30 year old dudes shouldn't have a mass growing on them. At a bare minimum get some blood work done or something.

    Are there a lot of Xbox One users that don't have an external hard drive?

    Seems like ASMR channels will make a lot of money, right? I can't tell you how many times i've opened up an ASMR playlist on a channel and fallen asleep only to wake up hours later with the playlist still running, and ASMR videos can be pretty long.

    Often times platforms will change over time due to whatever makes the most sense for their overall business to continue growing, and it's true that sometimes you have to roll with the punches, but I think (reasonable) pushback is always a good thing to have. It essentially forces a company to internally further discuss any changes they might have announced, and it tends to highlight some areas of concern that the people responsible for the changes might not have thought about.

    A prime example of this is back when Xbox 360 would get dashboard updates and semi-quarantine all of the Indie Games. Microsoft wasn't trying to be evil, but they skimmed over the numbers too much to apparently realize how much it would affect developers. The developers pushed back, showed the numbers to back up their claims, and then Microsoft updated their dashboard to help alleviate the problem.

    So while it's true that first impressions to any platform changes are typically blown out of proportion (and largely misunderstandings), I think it'd actually be worse if everyone just accepted new things in silence.

    The thing about YouTube Red for me... is that I'm already a sponsor here. I have bills to pay. I don't use YouTube for anything outside of watching RT, Markiplier, and Game Grumps content. For how few channels and such I watch on YT, the subscription isn't worth it. I don't subscribe to Hulu or anything else, really, because I rarely use it.

    The only thing I really hate about PS4 is you cant use external hard drives. I know you can use a bigger internal but I don't want to have to transfer them over.

    I just wanted to say you guys did a really great jpb explainign the merits of YouTube Red. As someone who hadnt looked too much into it but was kind of bummed about the possibility of having to subscribe to another medium, you guys have not only made me okay with the servide, but made me genuinely excited about subscribing. Keep up the good work :)

    But why can't we directly support our content creator instead of the money going into a pool to be divided to people we might not even watch?

      You can, via the tip jar or a subscription.

    Do people really give that much of a fucking shit of a platform on the fuckin internet? Is everyone that concerned with getting the attention of 12 y/o on youtube?

    The thing about Youtube red is, is that I already pay for a subscription, this one, and I am not overly motivated to pay for another one.

      I bet you also pay for a lot more subs as well. Or did you run out and cancel them when you signed up to this. YouTube Red also isn't just for RT fans, there are a lot of YouTube creators that don't have this same system like RT.

      Fair enough, I was just saying I personally prefer to directly pay the content creator. It would be nice to pay a subscription service that caters to everything and not have to pay for individual subscriptions, but I feel that this way more of my money is going directly to the creators of content that I watch. If I payed for YoutubeRed it would be for the features such as the background play, not so much as to support those Youtubers who don't have their own sites with subscription models.

    Here is the problem I think a lot of people have with a formir completely free service going to a paywall. They have the ability and certainly the lack of fucks given to simply throw more ads in the face of the people still using the free version.

    To out this another way where I live there is a toll road that recently raised their prices and installed a new archway that reads the liscence play and charges the owner of the car that way. Meaning their overhead is a bit less because they don't have to pay staff. So people started using the roadsaround it instead of using the toll road. But instead of lowering the toll, they lowered the speed limit on the other roads to make them less convenient.

    An I can even tell you as someone who uses YouTube to listen to roosterteeth stuff a lot while I am at work because the player on this site is still buggy as fuck, I have noticed a huge increase in ads since last week.

    Where once I might get an ad every few videos, now it seems almost every video has a pre roll ad and a mid video ad and less and less am I able to skip them. Even though the one for playstation and assassins creed syndicate (fucking hate that series) is 8 minutes long

      That's old, I have been getting ads every video and normally 2-3 during as well for about the last 6 months. Also a lot of people use ad block, which would be like wearing blinders so you dont see the speed limit.

      YouTube Red just went live today, the 28th. Why are you so quick to blame how many ads you see on a service that wasn't even up yet..?

      That road analogy to your conspiracy theory is awful though. How did they legally change the speed limit for that reason?
