Do you like AVGN?

Hell yes!

The person known as James Rolfe, "The Angry Video Game Nerd" or "The Angry Nintendo Nerd" (along with his friends/associates) have had their channel suspended/revoked by YouTube today :(

I wonder what happened T.T

YouTube Source: http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0M0rxSz3IF0CsSour1iWmw?sub_confirmation=1

Main Site: http://cinemassacre.com/

Fortunately their main website Cinnemassacre still exists and is on another server but that sucks for mobile users :(

I heard that Sega and other gaming companies are starting to clamp down on videos of their classic games. kinda unfourtunate

Not sure about that.

 

But I think it has to do something with the videos his friend "Mike" did as it consisted of audio/visual content from old TV shows and Movies which would of course would easily flag YouTube's censors lol.

NOOO D:

 

I was planning to do a playthrough of a Sega game :(

(Like Shining Force) T.T

I know Rockstar, Microsoft, THQ, Activision and Atari hate when people monetize videos of their content but didnt know they would go this far if it is true :(

I don't get why companies care. Any publicity is good publicity

Currently trying to spend all of my Club Nintendo coins before the apocalypse

Bet some random trolls reported him acting to be some company.

It's probably automatic, a company uploaded their content to the matching system and it took down everything immediately. It'll be back soon.

Solution: Takedowns should require an individual notice filed by a human being with the ability for dispute and review before it's taken down.
