I fucking hate Sasel so much, holy shit. Giving "segueros" (SEGA fans) a bad name. This dude is the epitome of rampant fanboyism and on top of that really fucking dumb.

I remember he accused Digital Foundry of being in Sony's pocket despite their image of "scientifically objective analysis" because they said the PS4 Slim was "cooler". Of course the fucking idiot couldn't be arsed to look up the definition of the word or even read DF's article beyond the headline because "cooler" in context meant "lower temperature", not "more stylish".

EDIT: I will also add that, as many others have echoed in this thread, Nintendo Ibérica is fucking shit.
He's also of the opinion that Trump isn't cool, but that Obama was much worse.

He's toxic and negative but closer to the average Era jaded fan than the infamous alt-right youtubers.

As a latin american spanish mother tongue, I have been checking out this guy videos and holy fuck, he truly is a fucking piece of shit. Calling all the girls in the family of someone "hoes/bitches" in one of those twitter videos is just incredible.

I'm Spanish and had no clue who this guy is, so I lack the context. That said, I'm Googling and I'm not finding any evidence of this?
Evidence is in his twitter feed, go back to the last general elections period and you’ll find it. Heck he even interacted with one of Vox’s official twitter accounts.

Another hint are his views on women, politics, unions and taxes ; )

I'm completely disconnected from the Spanish community even though I'm Spanish (I just found out about this) and even I know about this piece of shit. Fuck him and shame on those who defend him.

I'm not gonna waste my time browsing the feed of what seems like an extremely unpleasant nobody, but you guys would help by providing evidence of your claims. All I get when I google him is criticisms of him being an hyperbolic Sony hater, and platform warring exhausts me. Him being an extreme rightwinger is far juicier and something Nintendo should take seriously for sure, but if you are aware of this you should just produce the evidence and link it both to us and Nintendo.

Really don't know why these companies never do research on the people they bring in
Last week Activision used Syndicate, the guy who lead the CS:GO lotto scam, to promote what the CoD Modern Warfare reveal - arguably the highest profile game of the year. No one batted an eyelid.

They know. They don't care.

Have you seen the twitter quotes I posted on page one ?

Thats enough evidence to ban his ass from youtube and twitch. He should have never been associated with Nintendo.

Reading this thread and looking at this guy, I imagine he once had a great head of hair but he is so deep in his fanboyism that he lost it during the years of watching how things played out for the PS4 and Wii U

Obviously insulting Ronda Rousey was sexist and not cool, but I really don't understand what else he has done that is so bad, or worse than a million other Youtubers. Yeah, he's an outspoken, immature, console warring guy, but really, who cares about that 'gamer drama' stuff anyway? You might as well say that Jim Sterling is super toxic or whatever.

I think the average ERA jaded fan is pretty far from calling any woman a "hairy mammoth".
Yet at the same time not very far from saying something xenophobic against Chinese people, so it's all swings and roundabouts really isn't it.

@Javier23: Point taken, still pretty mild in the grand scheme of Youtubers though. But yes, I agree he shouldn't be representing Nintendo.

This, if he is attacking Sony and praising Nintendo and Microsoft, must be toxic...isn't?

Sure the guy has a LOT of haters but he has his opinions like everyone else and, it seems, his opinions nets him lots of views and popularity.

Well, he attacks Nintendo and MS too, but with Sony is some kind of obsesion he has.

Oh, and when he talks about the spanish press I cant be more right than he is, the spanish videogames sites are some of the worst Sony fanboy clubs I've ever seen in my entire life, totally biased opinions about everything and is something so obvious is not even funny anymore.

And, because his anti-Sony war he has and his opinions about Spanish journalism he has lots of haters and is catalogued has "one of the most toxic spanish youtubers" here. Well, you have an example right in the OP

Don't take this as an attack, but as a self-declared dedicated communist and marxist-leninist I'm honestly a bit surprised you're not more offended by him being a racist fascist. Or supporting a racist fascist party, at the very least.

He is probably the most toxic youtuber in Spain. And it's not only about being a X brand fanboy/hater. For example, the other day I saw a clip where he was directly insulting everybody who bought a ps4, and this kind of thing it's something he is always doing. Moreover, he is sexist, racist and is continuosly trying to manipulate people with lies.

When general gamerz1! are saying this guy is a toxic asshole.

Then this dude must be a toxic asshole of epic levels.
You don't understand, he can't be toxic because he's just playing a character.
As long as you play a character you can insult anybody and act like an asshole, because that's not the real you.

Serial killers should use the same excuse "I didn't want to kill him, I was just playing a character."

So you are ignoring all the other things that have been posted here?
It's strange how you're more concerned to defend this guy as a "poor victim" of game journalism bias while completely ignoring the fact that he's a piece of shit outside of his videogame opinions.

Look guys, he's a racist, xenophobic, sexist idiot but who cares lol, people hate him because he says mean things about Sony!!!!

His stuff about the press in general is ridiculous and if you believe it I don't think you're arguing in good faith. He's the guy that believes that Digital Foundry are a bunch of sellouts, that Eurogamer hates the switch, that NintendoLife is secretly hired by Sony to discredit Nintendo, that Sony's constantly bribing outlets to get good scores...

Is this the guy that should represent Nintendo España?

Who cares about this console wars nonsense ?

He is considered toxic in the vg community, political views aside, because 90 % of his videos are about Sony ( they grant him the most views ) but most of them are plagued with lies or fanboy misinformation. Ironically he trashes the vg journos for the same thing he is doing everyday.

And video games journalism sucks in Spain just like it does in the rest of the world, with only a few exceptions.

Imagine defending a racist, xenophobic and sexist clown just because he spews lies that you enjoy about the Spanish Gaming sites.

Lol at all the people here with the "it's just a character" argument. Come on guys.
You can call it the Dr Disrespect defense. Some people are sadly loyal to celebrities.
I mentioned it in the earlier Dr. Disrespect thread, but it's never just playing a character, either, especially not long-term. At the end of the day the "character" is nothing more than an extension of the person themselves, and jumping straight to it as a defense is little more than a flimsy excuse.

To put it another way, in all the years Colbert played his bit on national television not once did he say or do anything hateful, bigoted, insulting, or harassing in any way that couldn't be clearly construed as a joke. Because pretending to be someone you're not does't give you the right to be a dick.

Are you serious? For real? This is your take? That people are mad at him because he's "anti-Sony"?

Also, bigotry, racism and sexism aren't "opinions". Fuck off with that shit.

I don't see that as a gendered insult, and lots of people hate Rhonda Rousey for reasons beyond her gender. Also it doesn't make any sense as an insult. But I'm not Spanish so I could be missing important cultural context on this point.

If he thinks Obama was worse than Trump, though, he can fuck all the way off.

I'm a materialist- I know that many, many people hold those sort of views and I don't view them as evil fascists, because those people have to be won over to socialism if it's ever going to progress. I think he clearly has rightwing leanings and we could speculate that he most likely has some racist views, but I would need significant proof that he is an ideological fascist. Going on anti-racist marches in the UK, and seeing the sort of Tommy Robinson, EDL supporting counter marches, it breaks my heart- when you actually see most of these people in the flesh you realise how desperately misled they are, and then you see they have their children with them and you see how this ideology is perpetuated.

And yeah, you get a handful of old BNP/NF, or new National Action type proper white supremacist fascists, and they're obviously unsaveable, but within stuff like UKIP/Tommy Robinson/EDL the majority of people aren't like that. The difference between people who hold racist views and people who are ideological fascists may not matter to anarchist/antifa/twitter left people etc, but as an orthodox marxist-leninist it's incredibly important to me. For me, driving a wedge between that space should be the focus of any antifascist programme, or order to cut off the fascist 'brain' from the working class people it exploits.

Fundamentally, I don't think of racism as an individual psycological condition (which is how liberals love to frame it), but as a societal and economic condition.

So yeah, someone supporting Vox is a big shrug from me in many senses, as so many people support Vox, which is kinda the point. But obviously I don't think Nintendo should give someone like that a platform, and Nintendo should make a commitment not to work with any content creators that promote Islamophobic and anti-immigrant views. I'm not outraged by him however as he's just so banal.

I'm also acutely aware that the conditions and relationship to fascism in Spain is very very different to the UK. Support for fascism still lies beneath most of Spain's ruling class.

Obviously I'm talking about this from a UK perspective, before any US people jump on me.

She called Rousey a "hairy mammoth" in relation to her fitness to portray Samus Aran.

He has also gone on several long tirades of calling people's mothers and grandmothers whores, or explaining at length how he was fucking people's mothers etc.

It's pretty clear he doesn't hold the deepest respect for women.

Yeah he is a moron. Plus his content fucking sucks, I don't think he even plays games that much (when he plays, he's fucking terrible) he just rants all the time about Sony

When he first started he made some nice and very casual videos about retro games (Megadrive and snes mostly), but then he discovered that he could make a lot of money by being toxic and controversial. He releases two videos (very long videos too) everyday that are for the most part just rants, where he repeats himself a lot, just to maximize profit

That very well may be true. I didn't really get evidence of bigotry from the OP, though. I haven't read every post but several people are saying he's racist, too, so I guess that's probably true.

Sounds like there's good evidence of sexism, too.

No need to take my word for it. Here's the video evidence. If you can't understand Spanish, this is the one about telling people how he fucked their mothers:
