Ill keep this short and sweet. Since the very start of UE I have believed it is important to engage with the community. At first I could keep up with almost every YouTube comment, and every message... but over time that has changed.
Now, I find it difficult to respond to most of what is sent, purely because of the volume, and to solve this issue I want to begin utilizing, and building around this locals page as a hub of interaction.
I will still respond whenever possible to direct messages or comments on other platforms, however this page will be an area where I am much more active, and post additional material.
What can you expect to see?
I have committed to never barring the videos, or livestreams behind a paywall, however there are some things that i can do.
(more will be offered as well, if I can think of things that fit well with the platform)
Thank you everyone, welcome to the page, and I appreciate all of you that help me diverge from the unpredictable realm of YouTube monetization to establish something much more connected, secure, and reliable.

I thought I was done... but Earth 2 has pulled me back in. This time, a leaked recording of their newest developer reveals what he claims to be a multi million dollar lawsuit filed against youtube critics, designed to have their channels flat out deleted.
The "CEO" of the project will allegedly be filing this lawsuit through a firm in Canada, intent upon not disproving critics... but flat out deleting them. I for one will fight that idea with everything I can muster.
(Posted Early to Locals as a result of community feedback and engagement. Thank you all.)
Genshin Impact is wildly popular, and yet... it is wildly dangerous. The game signifies a never stronger relationship between mobile and PC/Console gaming that hinges on two psychological principles. The "Overton Window" and the "mere-Exposure Effect"
These two things combine to make Genshin Impact a horrific evolution on genre integration that will normalize greedy and predatory practices for years into the future.
Bobby Kotick (Robert A Kotick) is the multimillionaire CEO of Activision Blizzard publishing. His track record from a profit perspective, is impeccable, however his track record in terms of corporate optics, and public scandal, is horrific.
Over the past few months, Activision Blizzard has come under fire from the state of California (bringing a formal lawsuit) The SEC, the EEOC, and has even had their chief legal officer quit on the same day they see investigations opened.
All in all... the legacy, compensation, and future of Bobby Kotick as one of Americas top 20 over-paid CEO's is very likely at risk. Is it a bad thing? You tell me.
"Moon Boyz" are not just idiots on social media saying that their favorite crypto token is going to make everyone rich and upset the new world order... Moon Boyz are ALSO tiny little NFT avatars that somehow became the battleground for a manipulative marketing/scamming technique.
Who owns what? Who promotes it where? Among us? Kids? All of it. The Moon Boyz have become ground zero for sketchy behavior that boggles the mind when you start to dig deeper.
Cancel Culture is phenomenon that takes many forms, but today I wanted to analyze its indiscriminate efficacy, even when one of its core advocates is put under a microscope.
Jennifer Scheurle is a well known industry figure, targetted now by the very same culture she helped build. Meanwhile IGDA, as an organization, (the International Game Developer Association) is in a very difficult position because their knowledge and handling of the situation is now called into question. All in all... when a cultural steamroller exists... eventually it stops being controlled as easily as it once was.
An update on the Blade of Agony ordeal.
The new editied version is underway, and its not so great. Those who already knew of the controversy on Tuesday, June 9th, Tormentor667 capitulated to the woketivists at Doomworld and took his game down.
In the comments of this article however, I found his response to why he did.
I watch this guys videos all the time. No PC trash and very informative. I'm not quite as articulate, but I can be fun. I mainly run a gaming channel on YouTube. It's called Mongue 004. Come check it out and let me know what you think. I'm also here on LOCALS https://mongue004.locals.com/upost/805642/stop-just-blaming-the-publishers.
