DarksydePhil is a terrible middle-aged Let's Player with self-entitlement issues and a massively inflated ego. He is a Lolcow with a large cult following who watch only to see him and his business deteriorate.

Who is DarksydePhil?
DarksydePhil, DSP, The King of Hate, Phillip Burnell is a former fighting game player who began Let's Play-ing in 2010 before it boomed. After he had gotten fired from his day job working at a helicopter company, DSP decided to turn this hobby into a full-time job. Although his gameplay is horrible, there's more to Let's Play-ing than just the gameplay. And even in all of those other areas, he fails spectacularly: Editing, public relations, commentary, you name it.

What truly makes him a Lolcow however are his ego and his delusion. He truly believes that he is the inventor of let's playing and is above constructive criticism. Phil actually believes that his video game playthroughs are works of art. Offering any sort of constructive criticism whatsoever will cause Phil to accuse you of being a hater and/or troll (a "Detractor", as he calls it), and block you. Try to offer constructive criticism on his own forums? He will immediately lock the thread. As far as Phil is concerned, his word is the only correct one and everyone else's is wrong. Phil always makes promises to change (#DSPositive). But attempts to deliver on those promises are always undone by his refusal to change. Phil expects PewDiePie-level views for absolutely no effort whatsoever. He has called out numerous reviewers and critics for chastising mediocre games that he himself liked, such as Duke Nukem Forever, Resident Evil 6, and Murdered: Soul Suspect. Phil calls himself The King of Hate because, "he uses the hate he gets to fuel himself". In truth, Phil has thin skin and cannot realize that his own personality is why he receives the hate does.

Subsection: Phil's Ego Stemming from Fighting Games
Another aspect of his inflated ego was his former career as a tournament fighting game player. Of course, Phil wasn't actually all that great as at the time. Evolution Fighting Game Tournament (EVO) was beginning the transition from arcade cabinets to console ports. The ports of Super Street Fighter II Turbo were not arcade-perfect, and Phil was the only one in America who was familiar with the minor changes, making the fighters he used stronger, while his opponents unknowingly used weaker fighters or fighters that were countered by Phil's preferred character. To put it bluntly, the only reason Phil was the "best Super Turbo player in America" as he proudly flaunts was because the tournament happened to be rigged in his favor.

The next year, EVO tried to learn from their mistake by using a different version. This one allowed you to pick any Street Fighter II version of any character. Phil had found an infinite block combo with M. Bison and abused it to holy hell and back. Typically, infinite combos are extremely hard to setup and maintain. This one was so easy that you could pick up a homeless bum off the street who had never played the game before, explain it to him, and after about 30 seconds of practicing it, he too would be able to win tournaments. Obviously, Phil got his ass handed to him once someone used it on him in a mirror match.

(The combo was with Champion Edition M. Bison: Light Scissor Kick -> charge back/crouching weak kick -> crouching weak kick -> repeat)

Phil himself is completely unable to accept reality. When the times change, Phil refuses to adapt. In the rare instance he does try to improve, it's the wrong areas. Phil truly believes that "Detractors" are jealous of his success, when in reality no sane person would ever want the lifestyle Phil currently has. This was a man who would, for years, try to justify pointing a camera directly at his TV, and would diss anyone else for being someone who wears headphones and records their games on a computer monitor.

Despite all the consequences that come from his actions, he truly believes none of it is his fault. To Phil, it's not his fault that people don't like that when he chooses to include his girlfriend in his videos, people hate it, it's the viewer's fault for not tolerating her. It's not his fault that his personality and attitude has caused thousands of videos criticizing Phil to appear over the years, everyone else is just mentally ill. It's not his fault that he's been banned for excessive racism from blip.tv, it's a "Detractors's" fault for being jealous and reporting him. Those are just examples of how Phil is completely incapable of accepting fault.

Going in hand with his delusion is Phil's irresponsibility with money. He honestly believes that putting himself $1.5 million dollars in debt to move across the country with his girlfriend to Washington, and buying two new BMWs, was a good idea. Once he moves to Washington, Phil claimed, he will be able to have his much needed back surgery, he'd have a much better attitude, meet fans at conventions, and put more effort into his videos. Everything would change and fans will watch him again and it will be happily ever after. That would soon prove to be apart of his delusional fantasies.

When he was unable to run Battlefield: Hardline, his solution was to throw down $3000 on a pre-built that could have been assembled himself with the exact parts for $1000 less. In reality, his motivation was to hide his faults as a let's player by streaming at an ultra high quality. Once it was apparent that his PC could not handle streaming even the last generation games on max settings at 1080p and 60 FPS, he abandoned the idea and left his PC running twenty four hours a day, frying his graphics cards and the internals of his desktop tower to never to play PC games again. Instead of doing the sensible thing with his Let's Player money, such as buying a good PC with decent specs and trying to run 720p at 60 frames per second money, or even simply saving for retirement, Phil decided to waste it all...

...Hoarding.

Phil's Youtube Channel
Phil's Youtube channel is where all of his Let's Plays are uploaded. Rather than doing the traditional thirty-minute episode once per day approach, Phil instead chooses quantity over quality and uploads more than thirty videos per day, all ten minutes each. If it's a fighting game, the videos will only be three to five minutes long, depending on if the match goes to a third round or not. This is because Phil uploads individual matches as their own videos. As one would guess, there is no editing whatsoever. So when Phil dies or has to backtrack somewhere, the viewer has to suffer throuhh every detail, no matter how irrelevant. The playthroughs are almost all blind as well, because in order to make money, he has to be the first one to upload a playthrough of a new release.

Phil's procedure worked brilliantly when he first started, but for the wrong reasons. The reason Phil had gotten so popular is because he would upload so many videos per day that the yYoutube search system would show only DSP videos whenever someone searched for gameplay footage of a game. This is how someone like him achieved six-digit subscribers. Despite having over 160,000 subscribers at the time of this writing, Phil only averages 1,000 views per video. His view count used to be much higher, but it has declined ever since Phil's been exposed. Since Phil makes his money off of his view count, the less he views he gets, the less money he makes.

Before the existence of This is How You Don't Plays and other "Detractor" content, Phil's biggest enemy was copyright. Anyone could flag a video for copyright infringement, stating that the user is illegally using their content. If you had three copyright claims against you, your channel was shut down, no questions asked. Some games would be monitored closely upon release so that the game could flagged right away by the copyright holder. Phil's solution? Either make a parody title that search engines wouldn't find, such as Dicks with Guns for L.A. Noire, make an entirely new channel for that game so that the new channel gets shut down instead of his, or both ("Reddeaddsp" was eventually hacked by soccer match live-streamers, and later terminated). It had gotten to the point where Phil had resorted to using blip.tv for his playthroughs, which worked at first until he got banned for excessive racism.

When Splinter Cell: Conviction released, Phil did his usual day one release gameplay uploads, but his videos were all flagged by Ubisoft, forcing Phil's channel to shut down. After he and his fans complained about it, Ubisoft released a statement on their forums stating they had nothing to do with it. This ended up being true. Youtube tracked down the copyright claim to reveal the source of the claims as being a troll using the alias "Steve Jones". This was the final straw for Phil. He went on to make two new channels, his current one and another dedicated to video logs.

Before his vlog channel existed, Phil's original channel also contained plenty of non-gaming content. The most notable series he does is DSP Tries It. DSP Tries It is a series in which he reviews various fast food and other unhealthy stuff, like variations of Mountain Dew and energy drinks. Because the camera is often so close to him while he eats, it's the perfect series for if you want to hear a 32-year old man chew loudly like a cow. This series has become a cash grab for Phil, as it allows him to get paid eating pizza and fried chicken while drinking Mountain Dew.

The Beginning of Phil's Downfall
In 2012, DarksydePhil's views were in a downward spiral. Things took a turn for the worse when a former fan of his, evil2010, was blocked on Phil's Channel for suggesting that Phil's obnoxious girlfriend, Pandalee, was the cause of this. Later that later year, this fan's ire was again provoked when Phil claimed that his fans had given him positive feedback on his \M/ETAL Gear Solid 2 playthrough. In response, evilaj2010 creating This Is How You Don't Play \M/ETAL Gear Solid 2. His motivation was to show Phil the comments left by his own fans during his playthrough. After the creation of his \M/ETAL Gear Solid 3 playthrough, Phil attempted to cash-in on This Is How You Don't Play by doing a playthrough of \M/ETAL Gear Solid 1. The entire playthrough was riddled with jokes about a "Kojima World Order", and singing the theme of the professional wrestling team NWO. This marked the beginning of the Kojima World Order, a group of people dedicated to exposing Phil as the terrible human being he is and offering constructive criticsm on how to improve while also explaining why nobody likes Phil. Considering Phil's ego, the latter is a lost cause.

The This is How You Don't Play series shows off what a typical Phil playthrough is like. Terrible gameplay, horrific commentary, racism, sexism, obnoxious burping, blaming the game for his failures, blaming the developers for his failures. If the game isn't ended prematurely with a rage-quite, this behaviour will be topped off with bald-faced hypocritical praise. At the end of the playthrough, if it is a new release, he will do a review video called The Hateful Truth ("Where he gives you maximum bullshit and minimum truth") by trying to look at it from the perspective of a common gamer (which Phil is clearly not). Sometimes, a game will be deducted points because he sucked. Despite this, Phil's scores will always be either one or two points off or the exact same score as other mainstream reviewers.

Leanna Hangen / Pandalee
Pandalee was Phil's "full-time girlfriend", who was introduced to him via an online gaming session. She was a diehard fan of The Sims and rather than help Phil, such as doing anything around the house, getting a job, or assisting Phil with the non-gaming stuff for his channel, she sat in her "office" (the Renton Townhouse's second bedroom) and play The Sims all day long. One could be forgiven for assuming that she originally tried to use Phil to gain popularity for her own gaming channel, which did actually receive a Machinima partnership. However, it was clear that she was just your standard gold digger who would leave Phil as soon as he can no longer support her. Until then, she remains Phil's

The first thing anyone noticed was the age gap between Pandalee and Phil. When she was first introduced, people called into question the age of Pandalee, and whether or not Phil was a pedophile. The couple had a strange father-daughter like relationship. No affection common to a romantic couple could be seen in their appearances on camera, including personal vlog. The pair would choose to spend their time together at places that you would often see a parent taking their child, such as a zoo. Pandalee would come to referred to as Phil's daughter by "Detractors" after a troll's stinging barb in Destiny online.

Another thing you will immediately notice is how obnoxious she is. If you thought Phil's Let's Plays were bad, then his content that has Pandalee in it is even worse. Pandalee would never shut up, constantly whine, make annoying noises, and sometimes downright argue with Phil. Fans demanded her removal after she co-commentated in Phil's Assassin's Creed III playthrough. His response? "You're a fucking idiot." This Is How You DON'T Do Co-Op Commentary is just a small taste of what a typical playthrough featuring Pandalee is like.

Finally, you may notice when the two were together that Phil was completely pussywhipped. It's not at all surprising considering how in many of Phil's playthroughs, he reacts to women like a 13-year old seeing breasts for the first time. Respond to her blatant trolling in Phil's stream? Phil turns the chat to sub-only mode and says the viewers are in the wrong. No matter what Pandalee says or does, Phil will always be there to defend her and cater to her every whim. Little did Phil know that as soon as his Let's Play money began to dwindle, forcing the young Pandalee into the workforce, she would him ditch Phil, who stubbornly remained in his own childish mindset.

Pandalee has her own thread which can be viewed here.

Phil the Twitch Streamer (Blind Run)
Phil's Twitch account was made so that Phil could stream his gameplay to his limited fanbase. While that sounds good that a Let's Player is streaming so that fans can see the gameplay live, the channel itself was basically a concentration camp. First and foremost, if you said anything other than praise for Phil ,or,holding his hand through a game's difficulties, you were banned. Period. Phil ran his channel like North Korea. Is Pandalee on? Have fun sitting through her trolling with absolutely nothing you can do about it. Mention that you're running Adblock? You're permanently banned. Phil honestly believes that anyone who uses Adblock is stealing from him.

Maybe you weren't interested in chatting or giving Phil instructions. That's fine. The stream is about the game, right? Phil's streams would start with a "Pre-Stream" that could go on for thirty minutes to an hour. It's basically him ranting about little things, whining about the "Detractors", and even going as far as blaming his own fans for his lack of views. It's also the perfect time for Phil to beg his viewers for money. What he does not understand is that this is where a lot of his Lolcow content comes from. A great number of the Phil-reveal videos you will see come from his Pre-Ptreams. After he finally gets off of his soapbox and plays the game, you're treated to a bitrate that is far too high by Twitch standards and for what American internet can handle. There are of course, constant breaks that Phil takes where you're treated to ads (assuming you're not an Ablock using thief).

As expected, you could pay money to subscribe to Phil's channel, but there was absolutely no reason to ever do so. To put it bluntly, this was what you got for doing so: the ability to help Phil with something requiring his brain when Pandalee comes in and causes Phil to put the chat in subscriber-only mode, emotes, priority on game box giveaways that have no game inside, and access to Phil's previous streams. Believe it or not, some people actually did this. One person in particular would pay to cover other people's subscriptions.

As was previously mentioned, the high bitrate caused a Twitch admin to enter the chat one day, respectfully requesting Phil to lower the bitrate to the Twitch standards. Rather than comply, Phil complained that it would make his stream look bad. He even claimed later that the mod threatened to ban him from Twitch. Because of this inconsequentional spat, Phil Twitch to stream on Youtube in which he can stream in whatever quality he wants (and all views count towards his Machinima contract). Today, Phil's twitch channel no longer exists due to Pandalee getting into an argument on the channel and shutting it down herself.

Essential Links and Greatest Moments

Phil Today
Phil today is a sinking ship that one cannot take their eyes away from. Continuously making terrible Let's Plays and attempts at jerking off Youtube monetization for all it's worth has become more desperate as time has gone on. With blatant click baiting, obvious caps lock ("IMPORTANT, MUST WATCH"), and misleading and/or false titles. Along with that, he continues to deny the reality of his future and any constructive criticism whatsoever. He also demands that people react positively to his videos, and to not listen to the haters and critics..

He no longer has real life friends. One friend, OJ, was recently married. Another friend, Howard has been focusing on hosting Street Fighter tournaments. The only real one he had, John Rambo who Phil relied on for a long time, has officially cut ties with Phil after Phil moved to the other end of the United States away from Rambo and practically left him alone at Connecticut to live in Washington to be with Pandaleegames.

Everyone who has heard of DSP knows what the man is really like after watching a few expose videos, or even This Is How You Dont Plays of Phil ruining their favorite game. Any Google search for Phil Burnell will take you to one of the thousands of videos that show it.

Also something to note, because of this and his long gap between when he was fired from his desk job and today, Phil will never be able to get a job that will support him ever again (or at least a job with a good paying salary). This is due to more corporations using Social Networks to look at online identities to make sure they do not have any criminal record on the internet or would bring a bad reputation to their company. Only Phil is mentioned in that statement because his daughter will have already ditched Phil for another man to leech off of which suggestions point to Vash12349. Once his let's play career is over, he will spend the rest of his life unable to escape debt from the move, and the fact he believed in his delusions more than reality

Being the laughing stock of any serious, casual, or even famous lets player, also does not help him. He's been talked about by many streamers and youtubers that are more popular than him such as TotalBiscuit, Slowbeef, Retsuparae, Northernlion. One person, DasBoSchitt, even uses an accurate portrayal of Phil as a main character in his own machinima series, Youtube Avenue. Phil has been beyond redemption for years now. There is no hope for him at the end of the road, only the consequences of not listening to criticism, putting in effort or trying to improve.

Re: DarksydePhil (DSP for short)

I've heard of him (read:watched that Retsupurae ChipCheezum and slowbeef did). I also heard he threw a massive fucking Twitter temper tantrum over that.

EDIT: he also never, NEVER admits mistakes. It's either 'waaahh the controls are so terrible' or 'this game is bugged WHAT THE FUCK' (for best results, read those in the voice of an agitated five year old).

I'd say he's pretty good lolcow material, just by having such a fucking bloated ego.

Re: DarksydePhil (DSP for short)

Before I say anything about DSP, I'll just say this if it is relevant since OP mentioned PewDiePie: I'm a fan of PewDiePie, I like his vids, end of that. Now getting to DSP: After seeing the first video link that did give a link to his twitter, I just find it funny regarding how he reacts to one guy by leaving an "FU" in his twitter reply, real mature of him. Regarding how he plays the game, he is rather terrible. Also likes reading the comments in the vid. PewDiePie tries it much better than this guy at the controls.

Re: DarksydePhil (DSP for short)

I'm not really sure how I found DSP but I had been aware of his videos for years. Originally, he was just your average camcorder Let's Player whose main gimmick was that he would get pissed over sucking at online play. He wasn't really a lolcow back then. When he turned youtube into a full time job, got himself a girlfriend that's way too young for him, and started stroking his already inflated ego, that's when he started becoming lolcow worthy.

Here, have some twitter rage from when he got retsupurae'd.
https://twitter.com/TheyCallMeDSP/statu ... 3711986688

Re: DarksydePhil (DSP for short)

One thing I had to say about DSP and his "playthrough" of MGS 2: Shut up you whiny idiot, stop blaming the controls. Accept the fact that you aren't a good gamer with Metal Gear. Accept the fact that you did not read the manual and please accept the fact that you deserve to be mocked and parodied due to how you act on youtube. I as an 8 year old back then when MGS 2 was new, am a better player at this game than you were. And if people believe that PewDiePie would be terrible at this game than I would say this: PewDiePie would be a thousand times better than you at this game.

*Edit: DSP has a Dark Souls playthrough right here:

The way he plays along with his complaints makes me want to punch my own soul. He would be the worst player in Dark Souls to have ever existed.

IDIOT! YOU PRESSED THE BUTTON, WHY ARE YOU MAD AT THE GAME? USE THE DAMN LOCK ON, I FIGURED THAT OUT FIVE MINUTES IN! STOP AGGROING TWENTY FUCKING ENEMIES AT ONCE AND THEN WHINING ABOUT 'waaah there's too many enemies'. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? HOW ARE YOU TRUSTED TO LIVE ON YOUR OWN? HOW ARE YOU 31 AND THIS MUCH OF A FUCKUP? HOW? HOOOOOWWWWWWW????

Gah...I watched 1 minute 30 of that video. Fuck me, that physically hurt to watch.

I love that he bitches on his Twitter about how 'it's so boring watching an elite master gamer play, my lets plays are all about me learning to play'. Who wants to watch an experienced player play something they're good at? Here's an idiot dying over and over again and yelling about how it's the game's fault.

Maybe the LP a game right after release date just to get more views or something. If the LP'er has that youtube partnership where they get paid based on the number of views, than they might get some money from alot of views on the games release day since they aren't many gameplay vids done by the buyer.

Seeing as how painful his video was, I know how it feels to somehow feel that painful experience of seeing him die over and over, acting as obnoxious idiot who blames the game but not himself. Gotta wonder if he would ever try to make a video on a game that requires strategy such as Wizardry 8. If he played Wizardry 8, he'd have a party that would be useless. He'd complain about the graphics looking like crap despite the fact that it was released 10-12 years ago. If that ain't enough, he'd complain about combat being too slow despite the fact that there is a combat speed slider. I also like to see try old CRPG games where you are required to use certain strategies that require party members to be of a certain class or even play a CRPG from 10 years ago like Gothic. If he were to play Gothic, he'd whine about the combat being too hard despite the fact that it requires timing and knowing when to actually fight a certain enemy.

I was watching that Dark Souls video, thinking "why isn't he using lock on, hasn't he ever played Metroid Prime?" and then realized, no, he hasn't. He'd get stuck in that room at the beginning with the morph ball lock, run around for ten minutes yelling "I DON'T HAVE A METAL SPHERE WHAT THE FUCK", then figure it out, refuse to make any acknowledgment of his mistake, and die like eight times to the Parasite Queen because he couldn't figure out the force field.

I don't think I'd trust him to play anything more complicated than a Call of Duty game. I think he'd have trouble with the puzzles in Half-Life, and those were barely puzzles.

Actually, better question. Who watches release date LPs? What the hell is the point of that? Why not just wait a few months for pre-owned copies to be available? I just have so much trouble imagining someone going "Oh, Metro Last Light is out. Welp, let's get on Youtube and see who's playing it".

I would love to see this guy play Portal 2; maybe he'll be worse than IJustine if that's possible.

DSP aside, most LPs just piss me off. Sometimes I just want to watch a walkthrough of a scary indie game, just to kill some time. What I get are morons that yell your ear off and talk over very important cutscenes. The only LPer I've ever really had a tolerance for was PewDiePie, even then he irks me once in awhile.

I would love to see this guy play Portal 2; maybe he'll be worse than IJustine if that's possible.

DSP aside, most LPs just piss me off. Sometimes I just want to watch a walkthrough of a scary indie game, just to kill some time. What I get are morons that yell your ear off and talk over very important cutscenes. The only LPer I've ever really had a tolerance for was PewDiePie, even then he irks me once in awhile.
Pewdiepie? As in 'FAS-addled Swede who thinks rape is funny' Pewdiepie? And he doesn't yell your ear off or talk over cutscenes?
Good point, it's kind of weird why I tolerate him more than other annoying-ass LPers. Maybe because I've gotten used to just him I guess.

How the hell do you get used to that?
