Currently going back and forth with a guy in the YouTube comments on Greg's reading of the email from the person requesting Greg not use the term "he or she" and instead using "they" when referring to an unknown person.

if you meant to link the comments, it didn't work, but I'm assuming they're crying about sjws and snowflakes, in other words just ignore the clown.

I assume that this is going to be confirmation of Imran joining as a part-timer? Haven't seen much of him but he seems well liked so I'm all for it.

Isn't Imran the guy who said anyone against the EGS was racist and equated them to gamergaters?

So, he'll be taking Andrea's spot.

Also, was this a scheduled tweet that released too early? Keeeeeeeeeeeeevinnnnnnnnnnnn!!!! Going by Imran's Twitter account, this was going to be announced first on KFGD.

Edit- Never mind. It's live now. I must've forgotten the Morning Shows start earlier than they used to.

Am I the only vegetarian KF fan who is slightly triggered with how flagrantly they talk about eating meat?

I know I probably am but I have to vent somewhere, lol.

Imran coming on board makes me very excited. Then again, so did Fran (still very surprised at how little he's brought to the table tbh), but based on Imran's work and previous appearances on KFGD, I'm sure he'll be fantastic.

Imran is really great. He has a lot of contacts in the industry, gets scoops, is intensely knowledgable, calls out companies on their bullshit, and actually plays a variety of games. Good hire, imo.

That’s good to hear! On top of that, it’s good that KF is able to offer some support to people who have just lost their jobs out of the blue. Like obviously it’s not the same as a full time job but I’m sure it helps massively to have some income at times like that.

Obviously the circumstances aren’t ideal, but I’m so happy that Imran joined KF and he has already had an impact - today’s KFGD was fantastic. Dude is wicked smart and brings a different perspective to the table which is greatly needed/appreciated.

Wishing him luck and excited to see more content with him going forward.

Imran is a personal friend and I absolutely couldn't be happier for him.

I'm still gonna have to wreck him at the KF Inter Site tournament tho :)

I hope Tim and Greg actually bounce off Imran and show a interest or at least be courteous in faking interest in the type of games and topics he wants to talk about.

I've no doubt about that. Greg and Colin used to have great discussions about games that Greg didn't play.

Gamecast will be interesting again with someone who actually play different types of games and finish them. Not something you see everyday at Kinda Funny.

If Tim can feign interest listening to Fran talk about whatever minuscule updates happened in Destiny for 20 minutes every week, I’m sure he’ll be fine with whatever Imran brings up.

Seriously though this sounds like a really good hire and could change the dynamic of Gamescast considerably.

If memory serves correctly Imran isn't talking about Stadia like it's the second coming of christ. Isn't he also more sceptical about the all digital future?

I'm vegetarian and it doesn't bother me at all. Vegetarianism is a personal choice, it doesn't make you morally superior to people who eat meat (aka most people on this Earth).

Anyway, congrats to Imran.

To be fair he didn't say "FIFA has no controversies." as a definitive statement, he just threw it out as a random guess as the group was floundering.

Yup, it was more along the lines of 'people who are into FIFA aren't making a stink about it' which is generally true. Doesn't change the fact that FIFA UT is one of the worst examples of microtransactions in the industry, but it doesn't get as much heat in enthusiast circles.

I'm not really familiar with Imran other than some random tweets that I see shared by others. But everyone seems excited so I'm ready to see more!

I also really like Barrett on camera. He deserves some more love.

Is it just me or does there seem to be a bit of hostility towards Greg on the gaming side here? Like I wanted to make a thread on the gaming section about something and somebody on discord said not to cus it'll just get derailed?

I think some people get upset at hypeman personalities or something. I don't really know. But there's no reason to avoid making a Greg related thread.

Ok. I thought it was about the Notch / Pewdiepie support controversy.

In anycase, I just noticed somebody already made it. Where Greg hired Imran from gameinformer. Which was cool. The thread was buried a bit and I had to search for it.

Many people on the gaming side already had a vendetta against Greg for keeping company with Colin, and those feelings were then amplified by the pewdiepie/notch comments.

Yeah its bullshit and double standards.

Apparently its okay to shit on Greg even though he is technically a poster here.

But bring up other "insiders" saying stupid shit on Twitter and you get banned for "off site drama" and "attacking a member."
