@Bob
So wait, so some hardcore gamer with valid opinions is your idea of "evil." Yeah he did take your show, but you were being a douche with your show anyway.

Izzy said...

Still lame. Go back to doing strait analysis.

Sharkerbob said...

I see what you did there!

I'm really looking forward to seeing how this pans out. I think a lot of people are going to get/have been getting a bit overly defensive about this thing, but I think the people that do should take a breath, calm down, and stop projecting. Otherwise, they are really missing the point.

Although I can also understand if the "hardcore" schtick is getting a little old, and the storyline gimmick seems a bit out of left field. It's unusual, but I can understand the desire to break away from the formula for a bit. Like I said, I'll definitely be tuning in to see how this pans out. :)

Adam said...

Looks like you're having fun with this one. Interested to see where this goes. Please just don't make it too long though.

Joe said...

OK, the lampshade hanging made me laugh. Especially, "fortunately I was wearing winter clothing indoors when he sent me here."

Prof. Jenn said...

Let the guy be creative! Use the improvisation rule "yes and" and enjoy the ride.

Christopher said...

So what's the worse shitstorm so far? The Expendables or the Anti-Thinker?

Clayton said...

Probably The Expendables, though "Heavens to Metroid" was another big one due to Bob telling people to stop playing space marine Barbie with Samus and let her be her own person.

I say go ahead and let Bob have his fun. The Anti-thinker is pretty much the epitome of idiots who think that anything before the current state of things isn't worth playing and he's wrong about that.

Christopher said...

Like I mentioned on the other blog, I like shooters and first person games in general, but they have it coming. With all the shit I've been hearing about JRPGs this year, and RPGs in general, I've built up some bile towards the popular genres.

And I can't believe so many commenters have agreed with the generalization that all classic games suck. Seriously, you don't belong here.

Jason said...

Wait movie bob actually liked the movie scarface???? That movie is for goddamn tools and it makes no sense and it's fucking badd. The setting takes place in Cuba while the actors are speaking English with Italian accents, WTF!!!

thelastking said...

WOOT! Yes! Your back! I think this video cleared up some issues people had with the AntiThinker, including a few of my own. Overall, the idea of incorporating a plot into your internet videos is great. It has been done very well by those at that guy with the glasses, so I am glad to see you are doing this.
Also, to the AntiThinker:
I don’t know why, but that "WTF" at the beginning of your edit made you sound like you’re a teenage girl texting. GIVE THE OVERTHINKER HIS SHOWBACK!!!

I don't know if everybody realizes this and I'm speaking a universal truth, or if I'm just slow :/.

But goddamnit Bob you got me here. The evil part about the Antithinker isn't his opinions about games. The Antithinker's evil is on a whole greater level that even breaks the 4th wall. Rewatch the video guys maybe you'll see something different like I just did..

Or if it's all good fun, thats fine with me.

Blake said...

I like the premise you're going with as the point of this saga. I think this could be interesting.

Paul said...

Hi Bob,

If you didn't want the Underthinker to be a kind of "negative stand-in", as you put it, for yourself, you should probably not have prefaced his introduction with the whole "evil twin" deal.

I totally get that an additional character can do useful narrative work in explaining ideas and conflicts that you want to bring out. But this guy is supposed to be the Overthinker's polar opposite (and hence your own), and that carries certain connotations that require extra consideration. Such connotations encouraged and fuelled the interpretation many people made of the move; it's not their fault such an interpretation leapt to mind.

What's done is done. I'm still interested to see where it goes next; good luck!

twinsaneincarnation said...

Okay, I'll give, I'm curious if there's a new view on the videos after seeing this.

Nick said...

Is this your way of responding to the criticism that the AntiThinker is meant to represent a strawman version of anyone you disagree with?

twinsaneincarnation said...

Dude I think I found his kryptonite after seeing that video about the history of video games, but with his power right now, I don't think it would be wise to tell you, if you ever find away to talk to me without him knowing, we can talk about it. (I know this is just a fictional story, but I'm just trying to help the story progress!)

MontHenryKnitly said...

for some reason i can't see the video :(

Arkynomicon said...

Well, I hope you get your show back on track soon. I hope you are enjoying breaking from your regular formula. :)

Caio said...

I have a brilliant theory: @REPTILE 0009 is actually Bob feeding the flames of his own comment section.

Tell me I'm wrong.

Connor said...

You have voiced your opinions somewhat on Metroid: Other M. Have you read this article, and if not, how does it change your views?

ronike21 said...

Uh, Bob, I like your show and all, but doing an ARG or whatever you're trying to do just isn't your cup of tea it seems... I understand if you don't want to just give up on it, but please, wrap it up quickly...

P.S: Lampshading that you are in the same woods you often use does not a good atmosphere of believability make.

Dave said...

@ Connor.

Clearly the writer is just a racist who hates that japenese people have jobs. That`s the only explanation.

Brandon said...

Was hoping for a shot of you carrying a large beet over your head.

We all miss you, some to less of a degree.All eagerly waiting your return.

Alphonso said...

With this latest video, I get the impression that the Anti-Thinker isn't supposed to be a strawman for Bob's opponents--he's supposed to represent the regrets Bob himself has about the way he acted when he was a teenager. (He goes into this in detail in his third video, A Kirby Confession.)

That being said, even if there's a point to this new plot-based format, I still think it's inferior to the more straightforward analysis format, especially considering that analysis was the Overthinker's greatest and most unique strength among Internet videos.

@Connor

Opi said...

Come back Bob!! Wee need you here!! This guy is a douchebag!! Seriously, he's pure evil!!

Lexander said...

You know what, Overthinker? your absolutely right! We CANNOT let the game Antithinker win. thats why unill you come back and do the movies we all love you for, I'm refusing to watch any more of his videos.

You asked us to watch his vids though? WHY??? he is the ENEMY, and we must not allow his anti thoughts to corrupt us. we will preserver, overthinker. we understand if those beats you ate might have put you in a mildly delusional state, but you must STAY STRONG!!! We will not falter in our loyalty to you. just come back, and well have a super smashin' party and pretend this whole thing never even happened!!
