its a kids show
Yeah. Barrett mentioned the podcast name in one of his tweet.
I don't get the Judgment comment because didn't he review several Yakuza games at IGN? He's pretty familiar with the series...
He reviewed 3 and 4 probably because no one else at IGN would review them.
Lol this thread becomes more and more of a joke.
I think Greg needs to play a larger variety of games too but this particular example just seems a bit unfair to me.
That’s not a good comparison because the majority business of Kinda Funny is supposed to be about video games.
Just using it as an example. I wouldn’t care as much if Greg actually plays a variety of games and finish them. I could easily make the same argument using Witcher 3, Persona 5, Nier, Hollow Knight etc.
It really was, glad he’s on the crew.
Kinda Funny and running a good idea into the ground - name a better duo.
This kind of thing shows that they fundamentally don't understand YouTube. People get mad at YouTube videos that take four or five minutes to get to the topic mentioned in the title, so I can only imagine the number of people that click off when they see that they don't touch on the video's topic for almost an hour. It's like they want to grow their YouTube audience, but at the same time have no interest in it. They'll make awfully clickbaity titles and thumbnails, but then the content they make is the complete opposite. It's all good and well to have someone click on your content, but if they immediately bounce you're never going to grow an audience.Also, that episode is titled "Best Dorito Flavour Rankings" which is obviously to try and get in new viewers (because people/algorithms love ranking stuff) but then is anyone going to stick around when they realise it's actually an hour long show and the ranking bit isn't until like 40 minutes in?
I mentioned this not long ago but they should just break out the skits from KF/AF and let them be their own thing. Stuff like spending the vouchers in that early episode, and the Greg Oreo prank were great, but I have no interest in watching an hour long show for maybe 10 minutes worth of funny. If it's supposed to be a vehicle for Nick and Andy to be funny and goofy just let them do that outside of the bounds of having to put on a weekly, hour-long show. Of course that wouldn't adhere to The ScheduleTM then so it'll never happen.
Eh I suppose you're right. I just think people clicking on KF/AF would be expecting a more typical YouTube video that gets to the point, when in reality it's just yet another Kinda Funny podcast where they have to run through scheduled segments. Imagine if Oreo Oration was an hour long and Greg didn't actually review the Oreo mentioned in the title until the 40-minute mark.
Yeah im hoping Blessing is a regular or try to get him as a guest as much as possible, I haven't been listening to their gaming stuff for months now but really liked this week.
I have to imagine that it's actually a pretty good deal for RT with the sheer volume of podcasts and shows that Kinda Funny are willing to riddle with advertisements. RT have to be getting a reasonable enough cut for what probably amounts to a handful of phone calls a month with KF and the advertisers.Does anyone here keep up with Rooster Teeth proper? Just wondering what people think about the issues they've been having and if they think it'll have any impact on Kinda Funny? I don't really follow them but it looks like they had a buyout not long ago and now the new execs are taking over and forcing the old crew out, or at least giving them less influence. I always imagined KF could just walk away from whatever deal they have with RT if things got too bad, but we'll see. They still rely on RT quite a lot with their store and having the videos on the site and everything, but at least they're not owned by them.
The only other RT channel I follow is Funhaus and they seem almost like a separate thing in the same way as KF. I imagine if things went bad with RT those guys would either splinter off and go their separate ways like Bruce has, or go independent like KF (ironically what they already did in 2015 when they joined RT).
