@zefpunk: Stating a fact makes it a joke?

@benpack said the only thing holding EA back from making a new Road Rash is they can't get Soundgarden to do the intro. I don't know about you, but it sounded like he was trying to make a joke, not state a fact, because Chris Cornell committing suicide in no way would affect EA making a Road Rash game. Then @jeff immediately shut him down by saying it was a "sad state of affairs". I'm sure the guys wouldn't find it funny if someone said that Midweek Multiplayer Madness isn't called TNT because they can't get the original host.

I do get it, I was a 20 something year old guy once and I use to make inappropriate jokes with my friends and not expect anyone to take them seriously. And perhaps I'm taking this too seriously, but as someone who came home from school one day and found his father had shot himself in the head, I take making jokes about suicide pretty fucking serious to the point where after I heard this I had to relisten to it multiple times to make sure I didn't mishear, and have then been in a state of feeling sick to stomach all day since.

EDIT: @benpack is not someone joking around with his friends in private anymore, he is a public figure on a popular video game site, what he says and puts out into the world can have real impact on people. The recent Player Unknown comments on the impact making inappropriate jokes about sensitive subjects online can have on people is a perfect example. Or the impact @benpack friend Nick Robinson has allegedly had with the people he's been interacting with online.

And this is not the first time this has happened. At the start of the 5/19/17 UPF Ben "joked" about the creator of the Segway dying (he was wrong, it was the guy who bought Segway who died in an accident on one) following up @rorie taking about transitions between video segments by saying "You know who's not good at stepping on Segways, the guy who created them and fell off one and died." Followed by smiling and laughing at his joke...about a guy's death.

At this point, @benpack "sense of humor" of mean spirited, long winded, not funny, gross jokes at the expense of others is becoming a trend that I honestly have no interest in engaging with anymore. So I won't be listening to or watching any more content with him in it.

I'm not loving the visual novel aspect of the game, but I like the folks at Supergiant so I might check this out at some point. Perhaps I'll dig it more playing it than I did watching it.

@getupkid: I think it comes from a place of frustration where people have been hoping to see the crew improve as a team throughout these videos, work together, and eventually win a match. More of a "This is the Run" mentality and less goofing off with friends, if you will. I don't think most of the community is expecting high level strats and they want the crew to have fun, but they also want a Chicken Dinner.

@humanity: The difference being that Borat is a fictional character played by an actor, while Dan is... just Dan.

Dan is actually just a fictional character being played by Jeremiah.

Batman Forever and Batman and Robin are better than any Marvel movie?

I mean I know we're talking about Dan and his opinions here, but man....

I'll give Batman Forever a pass as being a bad, but tolerable movie. Batman and Robin however has to be one of the top 10 worst Hollywood/Studio films ever made; it's up there with Battlefield Earth.
