You hear that poor people, you all are poor because of your inferior genetics. So keep your heads down and do what your rich genetic overlords command.
It's not too unusual. Back in the day TotalBiscuit made a video addressing this and said sometimes doing a WTF video on an indie game translated into barely any extra sales for them. Can't find it because Youtube search is fucking awful.Bizarre that a game with the GAME GRUMPS name on it that got some extensive marketing from Arin can't get more than 503 players. It doesn't even cost anything.
X to doubt. I doubt Arin himself experienced much poverty. Even if his parents/guardians experienced financial hardship he was likely sheltered from it. People who live through genuine economic hardship tend to have at least some appreciation for what a dollar is worth. When you have to live within a set limit on your purchasing power, spending an extra two dollars on comfort quilt paper towels becomes a legitimate financial choice with implications on your future spending. Four-five bucks on bacon today means a carton of eggs and a quart of mi.lk you can't get tomorrow. Arin probably never had to make choices like that and so he has no concept of budgeting for the future.he claims to have grown up poor so that's probably why he throws his money around like a moron.
Uncultured pleb.I didn't realize Starcraft, Half Life and Baldur's Gate were console games.
Oh sure, I can believe that. It's just that Game Grumps fans seem to be so... obsessive that I find it weird that they can't even take the time to play SJG. The merch seems to sell out quickly on the other hand.It's not too unusual.

Well, pack it up boys. Clearly this is all wrapped up here. Nothing else to see or talk about.Well, thank God I archived Ben's apology tweet: today, he just deleted that Tweet and is now resorting to blocking people instead.
And right as conversation about him there was dying down there, r/RantGrumps immediately caught onto this and rekindled the fanbase dumpster fire.

For real, if you try to post on r/GameGrumps or the YouTube channel right now, either your shit gets deleted or you have a barrage of Lovelies parroting the line about how Arin's taken care of things and that you should stop bringing up old hat and stop harassing them. Even if you've never even talked to any of the Grumps before this point.Well, pack it up boys. Clearly this is all wrapped up here. Nothing else to see or talk about.
Well, at least that's what morons think.
You have to remember that "selling out" really doesn't mean anything if we don't know how much merch they actually stock. You can sell out a book pretty easily if you only made 10 copiesOh sure, I can believe that.

Yet, on the other side, everything Sseth reviews ends up with so much financial success that it often also hurts the previously established community.It's not too unusual.

...Wtf? Is this what we've come to? Every stupid little in joke has to be monetized? So when does it start injecting itself into the content directly? Arin makes some stupid in-joke and then immediately uses it as a springboard to "Ironically" unironically shill his terribly overpriced and tacky shit which of course is directly related to the totally spontaneous and organic in joke that wasn't at all planned out ahead of time as an advertising front.
Not only it's expensive, but damn that shit's ugly. Granted, it's not like the original sculptor had much to work with anyways, but it ended up looking more like an Easter Island Moai. Anything to keep feeding Arin's trading card collection to show on stream I guess.
Arin has repeatedly shown that he doesn't care about his brand or making money. He just wants to play video games for a couple of hours a week, upload him playing poorly, and talk about his dick. Expecting anything more than that would be tantamount to asking him to push a boulder uphill.I only just heard about this Ben drama. This might be the most extrordinarily exceptional issue with the simplest solution ever that the Grumps have ever been in. Like you got an editor, he works for you, he gets paid by you, and he has done nothing but a bad job since he started to the point where you have to do his job for him at times (i.e. fixing the thumbnails he made), and now you find out that he's been thirsting after a minor for like three years and yet he hasn't been sacked yet??? Either Arin is a huge pussy and doesn't want to deal with firing him or Ben's got some serious blackmail on him or something. For God's sake, relatively speaking, even if Ben had some dirt about Jon's departure and the Sleepycabin crew's big fallout from Game Grumps, Arin can only gain from firing Ben's fat brony ass. That moron's ruining the Game Grumps' "brand's" reputation even more than ever now lmao
