Let's Players originating from Something Awful - ft. VoidBurger, General Ironicus, Bob Kamoc

There was some interest in this thread in the discussion about the site as a whole, so here we are. (And yes, many of these are related to Retsupurae.)

Lolcows:


(check out that jawline!)

VoidBurger is probably the most infamous of the bunch, as she's become nigh-indistinguishable from your regular Twitter junkie SJW gamer girl. (Word has it that she was once normal. Neo-liberalism: Not even once.) She's got over 80K tweets as of this writing; naturally, she has a hatred for GamerGate that inexplicably persists long after the movement lost any and all relevance, a willingness to block anyone who doesn't share her vitriol, and conversely a tendency to endorse scumbags who do share her views:



Yes, she's endorsing that Trans Lifeline.

In recent months this has also been accompanied by a hatred for Donald Trump and those associated; unsurprisingly her sperging hit record highs once he won the election:




Remember that the Iranian upheaval she's alluding to was entirely the fault of radical Muslims, making her refusal to support a candidate that is harshly against radical Islam all the more baffling. Also, I feel for that maintenance man, having to deal with a woman who literally thinks that Trump is going to turn the country into a dystopia. (This coming from the woman who thinks that men who are afraid of castration are sexist because they don't want to be women.)

Perhaps the most telling thing about her political beliefs is her response to an anonymous ask.fm questioner who correctly talked shit about Zoe Quinn. The three paragraph-long reply boils down to "people who have done terrible shit don't deserve to have the whistle blown on them" (an incredibly stupid position to take in any context). Also she calls the anon a monster twice, which is of course the most sane and reasonable way to argue your point.

The saddest thing is, this isn't the dumbest argument she's gotten into. That honor goes to the time she quite literally said "someone please make my argument for me!":



She's also dating fellow LPer ChipCheezum; opinions vary about whether or not she's rubbing off on him. (Many have noticed that he seems worn out whenever he talks about politics, likely the result of having to put up with her all the damn time).

She also has had a "stalker" in the past who called her out on her shit. Her response, predictably, was to "ignore" him (in the typical SJW fashion of "continuing to bring him up repeatedly").

On a lighter note, she recently began to play Toonstruck with some other Twitter rando. While I've not played the game myself, it apparently uses a lot of racial/sexual/gay jokes - and predictably the two of them demonize the game for this, to the point of providing a fucking trigger warning:



...because apparently seeing the word "exceptional individual" is comparable to bona-fide PTSD.
(Honestly, that screenshot sums up her output in its entirety; oversensitive SJW crap, combined with "wacky" humor that isn't funny in the slightest, combined with an irrational, needlessly over-the-top hatred for people who disagree with her.)

Oh, and immediately before this screen, there's this (which, mind you, is the first thing you see when the video begins):



While I've seen a lot of SJW dudes do stupid shit like this, I've never seen anyone do it so quickly. (Nothing like driving off a potential audience right off the bat!)

Another good example was this dumb shit regarding her censoring the less politically correct bits of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, a movie that is almost entirely composed of un-PC stuff:



So, after looking at all of this you might be wondering if she's a literal child.



And you'd be right!

To cap all of this off, here's a bit of cow crossover:


Ironicus (first name Grant), by contrast with VoidBurger, isn't quite as loony. While he still goes off about politics (he holds a degree in sociology), his antics are mainly limited to Trump protests - sometimes extending to utter stupidity:



As though he, a white upper/middle-class Chicagoan man, represents all who are ostensibly oppressed by the President-elect. Also, he apparently doesn't realize that supporting vandalism is never a good idea when your Twitter is (even vaguely) tied to your real life identity.

(Side note: that middle tweet is r/thathappened bait of the highest tier.)

Also, he was part of a failed campaign against D&D 5th Edition because someone who helped write one of the books was an anti-liberal sperg, and clearly properly crediting people who disagree with your political beliefs is a bad thing!


Not quite/inactive lolcow(s):



(Fun fact: he's shirtless in the actual pic, posted in public - scroll to the bottom here for the proof.)

David John-Bores is more of an inactive cow, but in his heyday he was certainly something. He was once involved with Retsupurae (he recorded the footage for the Meet 'n Fuck Kingdom riff and later guest-starred on a few of their videos), and dated SJW lady triplewipe45 (as part of a poly relationship with some guy named Nick). Sure enough, she ended up leading him down the path of dumbfuckery almost immediately - including an inability to tolerate dissension from their opinions (I distinctly remember him tweeting "FUCK YOU" - completely unprompted - to someone who supported the Michael Brown decision), a habit of deleting fucking everything, and a general caustic attitude.

The two of them broke up in such a way that I can't tell either of them is innocent - triplewipe made a massive post, as is her wont, claiming he pressured her into sexual stuff, tried to isolate her, and was basically an abusive, angry man hidden behind a veneer of cheerfulness (and to be honest, given his past and weird forced positivity I wouldn't be too surprised). However, a fellow Kiwi who knew her personally informed me that he became put off by her delusional SJW beliefs, and that's why he broke off the relationship. Feel free to draw your own conclusions - personally, I think it's a bit of both.

Presently, he makes a "chill video game review show" called VIDGAMS, which receives $2 a month on Patreon.

It's debatable how much of a cow Chip is. While he's expressed similar libtard views to his buddy Ironicus and girlfriend VoidBurger, I get the feeling it's less because he strongly believes in them and more because he wants to be nice and not cross a line with either of them. (Of course, it could be Void genuinely rubbing off on him. I suppose we'll just have to wait and see.)

Honestly, I only included him here because I wanted to show off this picture of him:



Those are the eyes of a man who is truly dead inside. (See also: Jake Rapp and David Gallant.)

Not really SA-related but holy shit:

Shannon is more of a tumblrite than anything (and an inactive cow at that), but she lives up to the title - she was more than willing to start/participate in callout campaigns, no matter their ridiculousness. While PsyGuy (her most famous target) is a dickhead, many of the other ones weren't. A good example was when she reblogged a post prosecuting Tumblr artist inkerton-kun because he made a version of the old "Ignore the fact that he's masturbating right next to me" comic with Chara and Asriel from *Undertale*. This apparently constitutes pedophilia to Tumblr. Also he drew a comic heavily suggesting mother-on-son incest, which is weird but not exactly hurting people in the real world.

Her (possibly literally) autistic focus is on Japanese town mascots (i.e. Kumamon) and plushies - such that not only is she kin with them (among others, including Waddle Dees from *Kirby* and fucking **emperor penguins as an entirety**), she is triggered by "abuse" directed at either of them.

I'm not sure she's trustworthy when she makes all these claims about DJB abusing her - especially since the Kiwi I mentioned earlier said that her only proof was a single, later-deleted chat log. Also, she's proven to have a history of alienating people by being nothing less of a cunt:

This is probably the most damning thing about her, frankly.

These are in roughly chronological order - I had to reorder a few of them.


Naturally, triplewipe responded in the manner you'd expect:

Curious how that last tweet sounds like PsyGuy's half-assed attempts at apologizing to her for his behavior.

Apparently, she and people like her have been harassing him for like a year now - callout culture strikes again, it seems. If you need more, I've archived both TieTuesday and triplewipe's twitter feeds as of today - they include quite a few tweets I omitted.
(Yeah, yeah, self-quoting. Forgive me for not wanting to write out all that shit again.)

Misc.

As most of you know, Shmorky was effectively tarred & feathered by the Internet once those incriminating chatlogs came out in late December of 2016. A week or two later, Lowtax still had made a livestream with his daughter that ripped into him - and then an occasional Retsupurae guest ends up tweeting this shit:

(Yes, "l*wt*x".)
Understandably, Lowtax was furious:

And all hell broke loose, as a number of SJWs sided with @damehasclass (who shortly thereafter protected her tweets, a status which has only recently changed). He made a bunch of comments essentially reiterating what he said above, and eventually just went ahead and said

They were shortly (and silently) banned from SA after they raged like you'd expect. A number of others (like TieTuesday) deliberately got themselves banned in solidarity.

This eventually led to the creation of an off-shoot forum: The LP Zone.

To sum everything up,
I agree with this for a lot of SA "superstars" actually. I was way into LPs when I was in high school, growing up talking to my friends on AOL and having an LP on in the background for noise--for all the SJW bullshit it is now, it used to be FYAD levels of circlejerkery and in-jokes. Guys like Taxidermistpaste and VollipopMambo were super-famous for making LPs where the joke was that they would sing songs about big ol niggerdicks and make fun of other LPers. 99% of it is gone from the internet now because they would host it on Google Video before Google bought youtube, but over the years there were a few minor squabbles that caused drama, and a bit of hypocrisy from Slowbeef in particular. Mostly because of Slowbeef's moderation style and the sort of subdued undercurrent of his self-importance. He's calmed down now that he has a wife and kid but for a while, it was a lot of that type of "it's my way or the highway" SJW stuff where you try and run anyone you dont like out, by manipulating and leveraging people against each other. It's funny when I make an off-color joke but when you do it it's racist and awful. He seemed like the type of dude who would roll out a red carpet and have it leading up to his computer so that he could rage about "Do you know who I *AM*‽" on the internet.

This is a lot of sperging and powerleveling and I dont really follow it too seriously anymore, but I did kind of grow up alongside that "scene" and have a bunch of weird ass feelings about it.

If anyone remembers the Freelance Astronauts, I know that Maxwell Adams seems pretty decent. He posted a bit in the GG threads on SA (which were actually pretty balanced until Lowtax got pressured into killing them) and was pretty disgusted with both sides.

EDIT: He retired years ago, though and I'm sure he won't be coming back because he'd be flayed alive for being nuanced about GG.

Dave_O is great and has been an irregular guest to retsupurae and some other LPers over the years. He does his own shit and streams a lot on Twitch these days. I recently learned that despite being Weed Jesus he's been a fervent supporter of Trump and has argued with slowbeef (a friend of his) about it in the past. I'd love to learn more about him but I'm too lazy to do the research.

I used to follow DeceasedCrab and MadamLuna pretty closely - since DC's first La Mulana playthrough. I think it's been 5 years since I really gave either of them an attempt again, mostly because DC ran out of interesting old games to play and Luna just... not updating and focusing mostly on her art or something. DC is apparently an egomaniac and narcissistic asshole, and Luna... is literally moonkin. Like, Tumblr otherkin-moonkin. I never joined SA to really know the deets on either of them beyond knowing DC got into fights all the time, and Luna being made fun of for being really close to DC. They also got married at some point?
I haven't looked into either of them for a long time mostly because they're actually really boring people, but I couldn't help but laugh after checking in on MadamLuna again.

All these LP goons have one thing in common: They really don't like that Trump guy.

Ironicus protesting white supremacy, voter suppression, islamaphobia, transmisogyny [citation needed] and everything Trump stands for.

Chip's reaction to Trump's victory was mild, but I'll put it here anyways.

DJB invokes Godwin's Law.

Psychedelic Eyeball is a French Canadian LPer with a weird accent. He guested in a few Retsupurae videos and manages to be unfunny in all of them.

Axikal recorded a few longplays for the Retsupurae channel and is a complete nobody, but he's saltier than the Dead Sea. I posted this in the Trump salt thread already, but here it is again:
The only thing going to "the void" is the liberal agenda to destroy culture and make it so nobody has to work.

Had to look it up in another thread, but here's a reminder that VoidBurger once said that men not liking the idea of having their dicks cut off is sexist.

Okay, that jaw line and now equating femininity with cutting off your dick? And it looks seven feet tall next to Chip?

Gots to be a troon.

On a lighter note, she recently began to play Toonstruck with some other Twitter rando. While I've not played the game myself, it apparently uses a lot of racial/sexual/gay jokes - and predictably the two of them demonize the game for this, to the point of providing a fucking trigger warning:
Voidburger made a Silent Hill: Shattered Memories let's play a few years ago with Chip Cheezum and a (non-crazy) girl named Snark Cookie. This was apparently before Voidburger went full SJW because, at a later date, she added an apology in the videos' descriptions apologizing for using words like "exceptional individual". Here's the quote:
WARNING/APOLOGY: I use a real shitty word in this ("exceptional") and I'm actually very ashamed about it. It was a time before I realized the power of words like this and I deeply regret sullying this otherwise great video with it. I've since grown as a person and have phased such words out of my vocabulary. I wish I had the original files still so I could just cut it out, but I don't. :( I wish to extend my apologies to anyone I've negatively affected with my unfortunate word choice and hope that I can make up for it with content that is free of gross shit.
Edit: lol, Kiwifarms's auto-correct is more politically correct than Voidburger was when she originally uploaded those videos :biggrin:

And a link to the videos:
I loved Snark Cookie in these videos, incidentally. At one point she jokes about fucking Voidburger's daddy and there are other moments where you can feel an awkward tension between her and Voidburger (it's been a while since I watched the series, but I remember a part where they're talking about Voidburger not doing something correctly, or that she should have done something but didn't, and Voidburger sort of tries to laugh it off but sounds genuinely pissed).
Dave_O is great and has been an irregular guest to retsupurae and some other LPers over the years. He does his own shit and streams a lot on Twitch these days. I recently learned that despite being Weed Jesus he's been a fervent supporter of Trump and has argued with slowbeef (a friend of his) about it in the past. I'd love to learn more about him but I'm too lazy to do the research.
Yeah, Dave_O was on the most recent Retsupurae podcast (Retsutalk) with Slowbeef and things were pretty civil between them.
The comments on the Youtube video weren't so civil, however; a bunch of triggered cucks came out of the woodwork and trashed Dave_O for supporting Trump (and, apparently, Dave_O stopped following Slowbeef on twitter after Slowbeef said some anti-Trump stuff, but I don't keep track so I've no idea if that's true or not).
One of the more batshit comments:
Its pretty easy to make the choice to vote for Trump when you're not a racial/sexual/social minority. Not surprised dave_o or any other 30 something middle-class able-bodied neuro-typical straight cis white guy chooses to. His skin and his gender and his orientation are the best things to have when you live in this nation. But he smokes weed and is chill about the status quo so he's cool /s
I screencap'd most of the SJW comments and stitched them intro a long image that I've added as an attachment (the last attachment at the end of this post), you might have to download it to view it properly as the image is very long.

The Retsutalk episode with Dave_O:
Another of Retsupurae's hanger-ons (he might also be a goon, not sure) is Axikal.
Axikal is basically a friendless SJW loser that tries to win favour with the other Retsupurae SJWs but is mainly ignored.
He constantly gifts Slowbeef and Diabetus games on Steam and is apparently a mod of Slowbeef's Twitch chat (check out his hilariously pathetic reply to someone angry at his censorship and abuse of his mod powers in an attached screencap of the Y.T. comments on Dave_O's Retsutalk episode).
He talks to himself on twitter all day, uploads let's play videos to Youtube and has a massive number of tweets yet hardly any likes for said tweets. It's very sad.

Yet, despite his constant SJW virtue signaling, he rarely receives views on his videos (most of the ones posted in the last year have single-digit view counts) hardly ever receives likes on twitter (or any other indication that anyone even pays attention to him).
Axikal has 22,300 tweets, yet only 169 likes, basically talks to himself on twitter all day.PNG

Also, an update on Chip Cheezum's life: Despite only "working in the games industry" for less than a year (he's a video-editor/streamer at the game company Volition) and this being his first "games industry" job, he's now posing on a cringey "Men of Game Development" calendar (which features fellow lolcow Manveer Heir, amongst others).

And, yeah, those recent photos of him and Voidburger are pretty bad. He's so much shorter than her and looks so young that, if he shaved his beard, they could pass as a mother and son on a day out.

I looked up his posting history. First post was in a breakup thread, then it all boils down to him inserting himself into various topics and people tell him he's annoying so he eventually fucks off. Now he just spams himself in the LP streaming thread, which is a parade of failures in and of itself. He's also the type of person who signs up on SA and still posts like this after a year:

pic2.png

He is an incredibly boring, yet obnoxious person who couldn't find acceptance anywhere so now he rules the Retsupurae comment section (?) with an iron fist.

One of my favourite RP vids of all time is that Warioware one slowbeef and diabetus did with Shmorky (gotta love the irony of a troon featuring in a riff that was full of jokes about the LPer being transgendered and forced to.suck his dad's dick). Iirc Diabetus has said somewhere (might have been twitter) that he's ashamed of that video now, which is sad because it's still fucking hilarious to this day. Obviously there's no way they'd ever make anything remotely close to that again with VoidBurger and co being raging SJWs.

Chip could do with growing a set of balls though, he really does strike me as the kind of guy who's too nice and afraid to form his own opinions in case he offends someone.
