Who is DSPGaming?

27 posts in this topic

I don't have to say this, but he was another random gamer on Youtube who earns almost 32,000 subscribers. Who is he? Is he a bad or a good Gamer?

Well I can't speak for everyone but IMO he is a terrible gamer. I first found him while watching some Dark Souls vids and the only thing he did was complain and complain with every death though each was his fault. He kept playing it like you would play Skyrim. I looked at a few vids and the only thing I got from him was that he complains a lot when he looses (maybe that has changed since it has been a few years since I watched any of his vids).

 

That's just my opinion though.

Such a crybaby, but thanks for telling me. I wonder people on the AJSA know about this guy :D

Actually, he was someone semi well known in the fighting game community (a commentator maybe?) before he started doing LPs. That could account for the initial boost in subscribers that lifted him above the usual youtube rabble.

As for his quality... yeah. Just search "this is how you don't play MGS". It's actually kind of amazing how bad he is.

Even in the FTG (fighting game community) he's looked down upon.

He used to be in tournaments.

 

I've seen footage and he used to do some cheap tactics, and was always a sore winner/loser.

If I remember correctly, he's banned from a few tournaments now.

 

With all this said though, I think he's trying to turn over a new leaf. Not sure how that's going for him.

 

It's not hard to find videos of how awful he was. Not just playing video games, but just being a decent person. And then you have his die hard fans that go to drastic measures to defend him (like tracing people's IP addresses and hacking into people's accounts). I'm not sure if this is still around, but Kojima World Order was a group dedicated to pointing out how awful he was.

Ah Darksydephil AKA captain knobjockey.

 

I used to watch his vids years ago but soon stopped when his true colors came to light.

 

He is a self proclaimed professional Street Fighter 2 player.  He calls himself this as he won a couple of very lo level tournaments (basically no actual pro's took part in it) and he beat Justin Wong ONCE and he only managed that as he did a blatant counter pick and pretty much cheated his way to victory.  Every professional in the FGC hates the crap out of him and rightly so.

 

His vids used to consist of him playing SF4 online and then basically calling ppl scrubs and blaming lag EVERY DAMN TIME HE LOST.  There was even one particular vid where he is calling an M.Bison player a scrub and sayin he was soooo bad at the game...................He then proceeds to get double perfected by the bison player and disables comments on that vid.  So yeah he does infact suck at SF so much so my 7 year old could beat him.........sorry i mean the lag could beat him.

 

Now his lets plays are an even bigger joke!  Yes the guy has shit loads of subscribers but out of all of them his vids only average a few thousand views (if that) and this guy is terrible at every single game he plays.  Oh and lets not start on the fact that he splits his lets play vids into 80-100 parts some parts of which are only 3 mins long (to get more average view time and thus more money)

 

He begs his fans for more donations SO HE CAN FUCKING MOVE HOUSE!!!!

 

He also calls himself the King of hate and pisses and moans when ppl aim hate at him.  And when one episode has died down and gone into the pages of history he releases yet another vid bringing it all back into the light again and pisses and moan AGAIN that ppl mention it.

 

Oh yeah he is a pedophile too. He is literally sick in the head (see his walking dead playthrough) he constantly insults his own fans and contradicts himself daily.

 

Basically the guy is a complete POS with diarrhea frosting and should be avoided at all costs.

Speaking as a former Moderator on his forums, I think I'm in a pretty good position to answer this question.

 

He's an asshole.

 

What he does as a Youtuber is hit or miss, essentially playing pretty much all the major releases, going through the majority of side content, replaying some older games, all with his own "commentary" over the top of it. That stuff can be okay, every now and then he can be mildly entertaining, but the majority of the time he spews bad jokes, calls games out for being bad because he doesn't think while he's playing, and abuses other gamers like it's going out of style. He also makes Vlogs such as his "Ask the King" series, but because all of his videos are live streamed and then directly uploaded to Youtube, he doesn't bother to edit it down from the 2 hours he spends rambling on down to a size of video that's actually watchable.

 

As a person, he's got to be one of the most stubborn, egotistical, hypocritical bullies I've ever had the misfortune to talk to. There is a thread in his forums for fans to make complaints about things he's doing, because too many people were making threads about individual things he's done. He bans fans of his for making legitimate criticism, and then says "they're just haters and trolls, if people have legitimate criticism I'll listen to it". You know people suggested he direct stream his footage instead of using a fucking camera infront of his TV for about 2 years, and he basically said "direct stream is shit, fuck you, I know better", now he can't get enough of it.

 

And here's a personal story for you, the reason why I left his forums. This guy made a thread saying that he'd played Phil in a Street Fighter IV match which got shown on stream and uploaded to Youtube, he won the match and wanted to see what Phil said about him, which as it turned out was along the lines of "Fuck you, you cheated, you're an asshole". He went to Phil's twitter and sent him a tweet wanting an apology, so Phil blocked him on Twitter. When other members saw the thread (including long serving staff like myself) we all agreed that Phil should make an apology. Instead, he deleted the thread and banned the guy from his forums, leaving a note in the staff section that the thread was just a hate thread and staff should delete such threads on sight. When staff replied basically saying "so we're not even going to have a discussion about this?" he locked his thread and left another note saying it was his forums and if anyone had a problem they should just leave. So I did.

 

I'm not going to suggest people go over to his channel and give him shit, I'm not going to suggest people look at his content at all. Hell, he feeds off people giving him shit, he sits there and brags about it like "oh 20 people left me hateful comments on Youtube, well thanks a lot dickhead, you just put more money in my pocket". He's an asshole with a fanbase that he is literally killing off by himself, continue to ignore him and soon enough he'll be gone.

I got into the guy right after 2012 after seeing one of his Hateful Truth reviews, and he's pretty similar to mr Joe in that he reviews games fairly and to the point.

As for gaming ability, he's improved a lot. Back in like 2010 - 2012, especially in MGS, all he do is whine and whine and he's a complete asshole who sucks at games that requires skill. Plus he has that mean show "Xbox friend ridicule" where he looks at his friend requests and messages on Xbox Live and mock most of them. Thankfully he regreted doing that. Now he masters Dark Souls 2, complained even less, well except in Street Fighter, is not a complete asshole and overall a decent human being. His co-op videos with his friend John Rambo is great, I laughed a lot when both of them are playing WWE. Sadly he can't do that anymore since John Rambo wanted to concentrate on working.

In summary this is what the guy is:

Before 2013: complete asshole

After 2013: a normal human being. Big improvement.

I say watch his vlog entries. He's pretty smart and his game reviews are very accurate, similar to mr Joe. Like this for example.

I know him. I used to support this guy for five years but after a major meltdown that happened, I finally decided to sever the ties. I unsubbed from DSP and never watched his content ever since.

I deserve better than this. Just my two cents.

Not to mention, he always sucks at building PC and ends up with a choppy mess:

http://youtu.be/4WHIfacqeys

Note that this is a commentary version by someone who criticizes DSPGamer for not knowing how to build a PC and wastes $3K worth of parts. Looks like Phil going back to his 2010-2012 behavior this year, which indicated by the date on the GeForce update window.

Phil, you need to play Ride to Hell without bitching and moaning!

I use to watch him way back when he was still doing youtube part time. Then he got crazier and crazier. I don't mind the immature titty jokes or the unskillful plays, but he can't take criticism at all. People suggest he invest in direct capture when he first went full time youtuber even suggesting affordable/reliable ones but he just told those people to "fuck off, if you don't like it, don't watch it". People try to help him on games explaining to him the playstyle devs intended and again he just told those people to "fuck off, if you don't like it, don't watch it". Then there's the whining about financial trouble. He keeps saying he's not doing well but keeps going on trips, renting luxury cars, booking suites, and buying collector's edition, statues, and shit. You know something is wrong when you type his name into youtube search and hate videos come up before his own channel. Even Anita Sarkeesian has better search results than him. I heard he got better but I just don't really care to find out for myself. I don't understand how John Rambo puts up with him. John is such a chill and humble guy, exact opposite of dsp.

I wonder Angry Joe will have to say something about this douchebag. Phil is Corporate Commander's brother whom he streamed and uploaded unskillful LPs for views and money. He'll never be a better player like Joe, and even Totalbiscuit takes a jab at this douchebag:

Totalbiscuit wrote a long series of heartbreaking rant after he's being jabbed by Phil:

http://youtu.be/JKZKvHLBt_o

Totalbiscuit's heated revenge against Phil:

This sums up my reaction to this epic fail of a gamer.

Oh that incident is just one big missunderstanding. It all started when TB anounced his sickness. Then DSP wished him well because he know how hard it must have been in a very well done vlog.

Starting from 57:34

but then for some reason TB thinks DSP just name calling him, and then TB just jumped to conclusion calling DSP an asshole for doing that. Even DSP himself said these things about the whole situation in his pre-stream:

"Well of course he'll think I'm a douchebag. He's been missinformed about the whole situation from just looking at other people's hate montages when in reality what I do is nothing like what's in those videos." And then for some reason youtube thinks DSP is calling TB names when he doesn't, and then this whole thing happens.

And you couldn't have been farther from the truth. He's actually very similar to Joe in terms of being honest about the games he played in his review and his thought on the gaming controversies in general. Only difference is his attitude sucks, but he's now much better than years ago.

Ok I think it's best if this thread is closed because it's a pointless topic. DSP is unfortunately a victim of unfair bullying by youtube. He's trying to make amends for his past mistakes, he even shared his thoughts on the whole situation to his vlogs constantly about how he wants to change and be positive instead of being what he was in the past. If you hate him, it's your choice. But please just leave him alone and let him redeem himself because by God he is trying.

*Looks at second vid, sees it has Dark Souls 2*

Oh lord he played Dark Souls 2, wonder how much complaining he did in that.

He actually did pretty well. BIG improvement over the first game. Only rarely did he rage, and he actualy consider this game one of the best games of the year along South Park Stick of Truth and some other games.

He may be one of the worst players in gaming history, but at least he's kind enough to upload his badness to the internet so the whole world can laugh at him

I know right? Too bad it's too late for him. Look at the amount of people creating accounts just to mock him and the amount of people that will no doubt come to this thread and just say negative stuff about him. His past is just too hard to be redeemed. And surprisingly he took it all pretty well.

How is he a pedophile when his girlfriend is well over 18 years old by this time?

I suppose he meant at the time they went out/met.

I believe she was still in highschool when they started dating, therefore Phil was anywhere between 24 to 28.

In that context, it's pretty creepy.

But she's 20 now, so... *shrug* Who cares.

 

I'm sure there's other things, but....

But still, "pedophile" is not the correct term. It has been indicated that the age line for pedophiles is around 12 or 13 years at maximum. Judging by the fact that PandaLee was in high school at the time, she was probably at least 17, in which case, Phil would be classified as an ephebophile.

I found out about this guy after watching the "how not to play MGS3" video, I actually thought it was some teenager that was playing the whole time. His reviews aren't bad, but this guy just couldn't take criticism all too well. He would lash out at his own fans when they gave him critiques about how he would hold himself in his vids. And they guy uploads a bunch of videos when he plays a game, he doesn't even try to edit it down. He is the type of lets player that shouldn't get payed for showing the whole game from beginning to end, that's just plagiarizing. He also complains that his views would die down after a few video uploads of a 50+ video part series. Of course people aren't going to actually watch everything. But I don't know how he is as a youtuber right now, I have completely avoided his videos because I couldn't stand how a guy who gets payed to play video games couldn't comprehend how some gaming mechanics work and he would blame everything and everyone before he would ever blame himself for doing terrible at a game.
