Unhappy News

Sad news* to report from the Game OverThinker family.

Dylan the rabbit, who portrayed Commissioner John "Bunnyface" Buonoffacio on the series, is no longer with us. At an unknown time today while his humans were out, he (apparently) sustained an accidental self-injury that is, I'm told, unfortunately common in his species; and the only humane care option was to put him down earlier this evening.

We (myself, Dylan's pet-parents and everyone who knew him) are devastated. He was a loyal friend, beloved by all who came to know him and, to the end, an emphatically good bunny. He went to rest peacefully, with the people who loved him best, and he will be missed, dearly. I ask that you please send whatever prayers, thoughts, well wishes or "good vibes" you may be able to spare to Dylan's family and loved ones, who are understandably having a very difficult night.

Rest in peace, my friend. We will never forget you.

*P.S. I welcome Game OverThinker fans to share any thoughts or memories they have of Dylan's appearances on the show below. Additionally, given the sad nature of the event I ask that those who've made it their regular place to troll every post on this blog please be respectful and not do so in this case - because any abusive, mean-spirited on hurtful comments I see on this post will be deleted and likely result in an IP ban. I mean it.

Episode 100 - Final Episode (lost comments re-post)

Egh. Alright, many regulars have likely noticed that the Disqus comment-section under the original EPISODE 100 post has vanished, replaced by a mostly-empty thread using the default Blogger comments engine. I'm as annoyed about it as I imagine many of you are, and while I harbor no illusions that this explanation will satisfy anyone inclined to believe that I deleted the thread because I disagreed with certain posters; I feel I owe an explanation anyway:

All Good Things

So. Straight and to the point: What you may have heard already is true - I am no longer working for The Escapist. 

The last episode of ESCAPE TO THE MOVIES ran today (It's Kingsman, it's good) as did the last INTERMISSION.

I'll have more to say later (right now, I've an appointment to keep) but suffice it to say that I am devastated, heartbroken and quite upset by this turn of events, which came mostly as a surprise to me. I am grateful for the time I had there, for the platform that was afforded to me and - most of all - to my loyal fans and readers, who I hope will follow me to whatever venture comes next. And for those wondering: No, this has nothing to do with hashtags, "consumer revolts" or any other such nonsense - not that I expect that will keep the chattering class at bay in that regard, but facts are facts

I have several projects that are already in the offing, which I will now likely be announcing sooner or later. I'd ask anyone who hasn't already done so to please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

I am where I am because of my fans, followers and viewers - I have not forgotten that, and will not. It's going to be a rough near-future, for this and a variety of other reasons, but I plan to emerge on the other side of it in better shape and ready for great new things. And I hope that you will join me there.

Angry Joe on #GamerGate (and Everything Else)

There was some Internet Drama over the weekend as the great Angry Joe's yearly Top Ten Gaming Controversies video got hit with a (seemingly, from this angle) bullshit Copyright claim by some other YouTube fixtures I won't do the favor a mention. Suffice it to say, it's back up, so give it a watch. You'll want to go to 31:43 the "big news," i.e. AJ on #GamerGate; but you should absolutely watch the entire video HERE.
