lol the quotation marks around trending tell you so much

The psychic damage from the Mario 64 incident is so deep that Dave Perry is still replying to old comments on the YouTube video as of a few months ago, telling people to fuck off via a sockpuppet account and suggesting that both GamesMaster and Games World failed after he left

 

I think he's deleted that most recent YouTube comment now. But the funniest/saddest thing is that if you look through the older comments, it looks quite a bit like he's been there replying on a couple of other, not quite so glaringly obvious accounts over the years... "Don't even know how I came upon this" indeed.

While the hosts might be one small good sign, it's a bit overwhelmed by the news that they're focusing on the winning formula of D-list celebrities ineptly flailing away at each other in some beat-em-up or another. This was crap enough back in the early 90s but in the modern context, where anyone that's interested in watching games being played has enough choice on the various streaming services to spend about a million hours a day doing so, and the streamers become genuine celebrities from doing it, it seems like a bewildering choice. Are they hoping this will somehow recapture the Taskmaster magic or something?

 

If, say, Rob Florence had been involved from the start then I might be a bit more optimistic, because Consolevania was (well, still is) pretty great and there is surely a way of making something a little more mainstream from that template. Sadly, all we've seen so far is them posting misjudged appeals on jaded gaming forums and promising yet more exciting opportunities to hatewatch ex Love Island contestants.

If we're luckly with Rob, it'd transform in to a videogaming equivalent of (Craig Charles era) Takeshi's Castle.

Hang on, I thought at least one of us did and never heard back! But yeah, the first visible signs of someone who does have a clue being involved does help.

 

Yeah I did but he ignored me. Probably thought I was only applying to take the piss! 😆
