Seems like he should ave never been banned in the first place, so good for him.

I personally never liked him. Dude was the biggest console fanboy on ign, especially for someone who was supposed to be a somewhat objective journalist... maybe in the end he was more of a personality than a journalist so it made more sense there but man... you could count on that guy having exactly zero interesting or intelligent things to say to or ask pc game developers. he only ever had one question... so when is it coming to consoles, hero derp, and the rest of the time it was him being bored, so obnoxious.

I wondered why they ever assigned him pc related tasks, it always turned out the same. Guy was so clueless. I did enjoy it when he spoke passionately about a fe game franchises on consoles that I was familiar with though.

He's a happy guy who has cultivated a following with people he considers "family". I can't say I buy his whole schtick all the time but I get why people are drawn to him. I enjoyed him when he hosted Beyond but after he left IGN, he got to be a bit much for me. Again, I get why people like him, just not for me atm.

That said, some of y'all need a break from this internet thing. It must be exhausting being this cynical and hateful 24/7.
I guess it is exhausting to host a daily show where you give a platform to people saying Notch and Pewdiepie do no harm.

The dude posts here, it's okay to shit on other .members now? You don't have to like him but you should try having some class.

i mean, i don't care for greg because of his whole handwaving of notch and pewdiepie bit, but do go off

glad he's reeinstated though, what a weird situation

EDIT: not to imply that he didn't apologise or he doesn't make strides to be better and stuff

Yikes....some of you in the last thread are straight up insufferable. Why is that shit allowed.

Greg Miller can be a little....hyper at times but that's his thing. The schill talk is ridiculous too.

Good grief man, what part of anything I posted came across like me defending the guy for what he may have said?
Greg literally came into this forum and apologized and outlined steps he’d take to improve

I swear, some people on ERA straight up do not believe people can learn from their mistakes and improve as people, and instead continue to bash people over mistakes they made in the past

Eh, this would have taken a single email to the E3 media team to have sorted out.

Anyone who's gone to the show as media for a few years knows the media team by name.

It does make for good social media engagement though.
He did email them, that's how it got resolved. He also used it to make some funny content for one of his podcasts AND have a real/interesting discussion about how E3 is changing, who should be allowed in, etc.

edit: and technically it took at least 2 emails, as he read them during the podcast (not that that's the important part of your post). They responded to his first email with a photo of the badge that was confiscated, and he sent them a picture of his actual badge that apparently had a different barcode number to show that it wasn't his.

I dont like Kinda Funny because of Andrea, but people hating on Greg because of his enthusiastic persona, while at the same time on this site people sing to the heavens how "genuine" the fake reactions from other identical personalities like the people from Easy Allies always amuse me.

They are the same thing. Entertainers getting money. Nothing wrong with that.

E3 2019 did suck and Greg Miller was there. In fact, the EA stuff he worked on was particularly terrible and is roundly considered to be one of the worst showings by a publisher.
So did you have a problem with the games or the hosting? You seem to be conflating the two.

I don't think Easy Allies does fake reactions. Huber is a 100% real person.

Lost a lot of respect for this dude today. Of course this was a dumb mistake. Why he didn't try to privately resolve this error instead of sending the internet trolls on someone just rubs me the wrong way. I don't think Greg looks at himself as some big internet celebrity, he seems very humble, but he really comes across as an entitled internet celeb today.

Just as was the case with the previous thread, there's not much to discuss here. We're closing this.

Indeed it's completely unnecessary. I am all for holding people to account but what's the point when they've already owned up to their mistakes and said they're going to change? How does that help anyone?

You're taking this way too seriously. It was an interesting story of identity theft, nothing more.
