After my video comments were hijacked by someone advertising their templates, I decided to workout my frustration in a creative way. Along with a friend, we designed a parody to express our social disappointments.

    Haha love it man.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Good to see you're not throwing in the towel. Ah, humor... the opiate of the masses. :)

    I suggested playing drums to cool off but this will work ;)

    Oh... When I get mad... I program violent games with really gory graphics... But none survive because my computer ends up thrown on the other side of the room 8-X
    That's rare though. What @LudwigHeijden said is similar to what I do - Go play Beethoven's 5th symphony on the piano. I love it. But this isn't an anger management class...

    @Zoyt Beethoven's 5th... Whats in a name ;)

    Thanx all. I was at one time a comedy writer for television sitcoms so this was a fun return to that type of work. Maybe I'll make a mini Hmm someone gave it a thumbs down.....maybe they are a humorless template

    Great vid! I laughed so hard, I choked on my spit! :D

    Good reception! I was a tad bit concerned that it might be missunderstood or taken the wrong way. Nice to see that our freinds here appreciate the satire.

    @RP Thanx for your twisted creative spirit and your great voice work!
  • RPRP Posts: 1,990Member

    Thanks Hombre! Twisted is my middle name. Sigh....actually it's not but it sounded cool.

    Love this! Great Work!

    I'm tempted to go try and sell stuff on your other template videos so you'll keep making videos like this!

    I have another in the planning......on a separate topic. It's shaping up to be a behind the scenes of fake development companies.

    Funny but could have been funnier - needs the golden steps to Game making success:

    Step1: Find a free template
    Step2: Make minimal changes or none at all!
    Step3: Give it a name that sounds vaguely familiar or take one that already popular and change it slightly - The Angry Birdz anyone?
    Step4: Boast about your great game in the forums, to those who would know it as a rip off and come up will all sorts of lame excuses for it being 'similar' to other games
    Step5: Get your 'posse' together and launch a campaign against your competitors or anyone who dares criticize the game or your motives
    Step6: Launch your game with pilfered descriptions and art for all the world to see!
    Step7: Reap the rewards of the 2 hours it took you to do all this

    @singlesparq that would be in infomercial format and I couldn't fit the audience in my studio. Plus the monkey I hired to play the host canceled, I suspect he was hung over.

    So today comments appear on three of my video's this one was the longest.

    "Maybe it's just that your templates suck? Could also be that pro developers do not use toys like GameSalad which was made for kids? Perhaps you are being paid back for helping promote CRAP in the app store by doing templates in the first place?

    You deserve it because you produce **** and use toys as tools. You are not a developer, your skills are laughable at best, just like 99.9% of the other kids using GameSalad.

    Hang it up, leave development to the pros!"

    What I find amusing is I found this person's website and it was made with iWeb..LMAO

    I doubt this person's claim as why would a non-GS user invest so much time to express so much hate...? Although the person didn't know I don't make templates so who knows..I just think it funny that some TOOL actually thinks I care what they If they knew me, they'd know I'll sleep well tonight no matter what anyone thinks... Time for a nap..... : )

    Why would someone invest that kind of time to harass you? It's silly.

    Oh noooes! Rubbed someone the wrong way. Yeah, it takes a real special type of person to go out of their way to leave comments like that. Meanwhile Mr/Miss/Mrs. Commenter knows nothing about you or what you have done and what you do. Assumption is a biatch.

    A little fun update. Since I just fixed those bugs you helped me out with @FryingBaconStudios I just had a few minutes to kill and found some fun facts.

    Your commenter, he's a pretentious WOW fanatic/modder. He is also trolling Utopian games & Tshirtbooth. Maybe the video was to close to the truth for him. Rule #1 when you spend most your life online trolling multiple sites about WOW, games and countless videos, never, never use the same screen name. This commenter has a slimy trail that can be found many, many places.

    He has another friendly comment on Utopiangame's Q-bert template vid.
  • The_Gamesalad_GuruThe_Gamesalad_Guru Posts: 9,913Member
    Sounds like he doesn't spend much time working, I bet he's like 30 living in his mother's basement, girlfriend less. I'm surprised he takes breaks from surfing porn to make

    Sounds about right. I'm not sure how anyone can post so much vile, senseless and unproductive nonsense throughout the day (nothing is positive with this guy). Whatever the case may be, he is either a current or former member of GameSalad as he made unsavory comments noting the nation of residence of one our Sous.

    Maybe, just maybe Sticky Fingers L.L.C. drove him to madness. Or....he is the moderator of their forums.
