    But that RipperX guy....I just can't watch his video till the end, I dont know if its because he fails to make me laugh or because sometimes he tries too hard to make a game fun and amusing when it really isnt

    i rarely watch his videos for the same reason. They are not "bad", just not interesting enough, and the fake voice make it worse. Thats just me. He would do better if he acts more natural.

    I know, right.  What's the deal with his voice.  It sounds like he is purposefully trying to sound like a slick snake oil salesman.

    I liked Pokket well enough.  I'm not really looking to be entertained, but rather informed in more detail about a game.  My preference is for the narrator to have a pleasant voice and who doesn't try to crack jokes when they know they aren't funny.

    The last time I got excited watchin someone play a video game was that street fighter video where what's his face came back with a huge combo to win in the championship game. God that was years ago though, dunno how to even find that video.

    Was it this one?  This is one I got excited about.  http://youtu.be/pS5peqApgUA?t=2m38s

    haha never mind someone else knew the one you were talking about too.

    That's the one. Anyone who played a lot of SF knows how amazing that truly is lol. Well it is for me, but I have never been pro at fighting games.

    Too bad, I thought she had some good articles (I mean that in a totally platonic and non-biased way).

    To be honest I found some of the articles irritating.  I don't mind slightly ill-informed diatribes in forums, but in articles it winds me up (thinking largely of the 'people left my guild' moan a little while ago).

    Like all the talking heads she had some entertaining articles/vids and some that were less so.

    I didn't like pokket but that doesn't mean she didn't have value. Gaming is hard...you can't be unemotional about it.

    I'm sure she's a good person but gaming isn't for everyone. Passion is the energy of this community. My personal pet peeve was when she pushed off the Matt Miller/ Positron interview. Why would she not want to talk to him? I wanted her gone for sure after that...

    The sad part is she rants and raves about other girls doing the same exact shit she does/did. Hilarity.

    We need more fluff on here now :(

    I jsut felt the whole Pockket thing was contrived.  She had a shrill voice and the green hair really was over the top.  I might jsut be sexist but Im not huge on girl gamers haha.

    Sandbox means open world, non-linear gaming PERIOD!

    Just another "professional hot chic" who makes a bit of a name for herself then sells it somewhere else.

    Her gaming reviews and commentary were the equivalent of doing a book report by reading the jacket of the book.

     

    Every game she played she ran with "pro" groups touting how she is so good at PvP meanwhile she was stacked with buffers and pocket (pun semi intended) healers.

    Gaming is Dirt Cheap compared to this...

    Dammit, this is literally worse than anything Rick Astley could have ever done to me.

     

    Anyways her dialect was the only issue that prevented me from watching. Although I do find the posts in this thread. . . I guess to an extent special.

    She basically had no idea what she was talking about most of the time, unless it was SWTOR related, and even that was bizzare at times.

    I just don't think she offered anything that made her watchable.  She would just claim things that made little sense, (she claimed she read through THQ's bankruptcy reports but then didn't seem to have any idea what their licenses and I.P's were). As for MMOs she seemed to have little interest or insight into anything but SWTOR oh and then that was only Sith Sorceors.  She was neither amusing nor informative.

    Overally I got the impression she was an Avril Lavigne for the MMO crowd...

     

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    /agree

    There is a reason some people make good presenters. This guy is an example of what not to do. Needs to go have adenoids removed, move microphone away from mouth (or get a windscreen), and in general try not to sound like the guy from IT that resides in the closet/office on the 2nd floor.

    Same here...

    I don't know why people insist on trying to be comedians in these videos. If you are funny, go with it. Don't go out of your way to try to be funny. Just tell me about the game and if the comedy works, it just does. I personally like Grakulen's sense of humor. He doesn't try to be funny, but he interjects humor from time to time during an informative segment. Ripperx videos are horrible IMHO. I am not a Pokket fan, but she gave good information during her videos.

    I couldn't sit through her videos. She always come off as at 16 year old girl talking to her friends about that first kiss. Nothing she did came off as very knowledgeable about her subjects, and I'm not trying to be mean, proofreading her reviews must have been a nightmare. She seemed like a very sweet girl and I wish her the best, but she really needs more experience and training if she wants a career doing what she is trying to do. I have no doubt with more training and experience she can become better.
