Despite PewDiePie Backlash, Nintendo is Flooded With YouTube Partner Requests - GameSpot
PewDiePie, or Pewdie is the YouTube alias of Swedish gamer Felix Kjellberg. He is known for his Let's Play videos, often choosing horror-themed games. while that year in November and in December was surpassed by YouTube is known as CutiePie and the couple often appear in videos together. MrBoom This is a list of Wii U games, released physically on Wii U optical discs or for download from the "US release date for Art of Balance (Wii U, eShop) is October, 9th, !". Twitter.

He does feature in a number of her videos and they currently live together in Brighton, of around $ per day ($, a year) from the ads that run on the videos. where deep-pocketed companies can target ads on the top 5% most popular content. He mainly streams the battle royale game Fortnite on a daily basis.
His most viewed video, A Funny Montage, which garnered over 80 million views, is the only video that has more views than his subscriber count. Reputation With milestone accomplishments like the most subscribed and most viewed channel on YouTube, PewDiePIe is quite often cited as one of the most famous and commercially successful YouTube celebrities.
Due to his iconic status in the mainstream gaming world, PewDiePie's Let's Play series has prompted an Oprah-like effect on the sales of indie games after being featured in his episodes. However, since late earlyPewDiePie has been recognized by some people as a racist, bigot, and a nazi, due to out-of-context accusations by the Wall Street Journal by labeling him as one. Still to this day, there are people out there who geniunely think of PewDiePie as a hateful person.
Charity On February 1st,PewDiePie entered the King of the Web  contest, a social media competition that awards cash or merchandise prizes to the winners of a weekly competition. After receiving more than a million votes, he was crowned King of the Web on February 29th, Jude Hospital out of funds he recieved from being a YouTube partner shown below, left. Furthermore, PewDiePie has also encouraged his fans to be active in charity. After gaining 10, subscribers on YouTube, he posted a video encouraging fans to donate to the charity: Eventually, PewDiePie gave a seal of approval in the form of a letter to slowbeef.
On October 14th,Retsupurae uploaded "Adults React To PewDiePie" shown below, leftalong with a "worksafe" version of the video, which cut out various reactions alluding to drugs and violence, on the following day shown below, right. Both videos were met with huge negative and positive reception from PewDiePie's fandom and anti-fandom.
Due to the controversy surrounding the video, "Adults React" became the most watched and liked video on the channel in the span of a few days.
Following the release of the video, fellow Something Awful user General Ironicus posted his own interpretation as to why the video gathered the praise it did, as well as to give a critique to PewDiePie's fanbase.

Pretty funny I'll admit! But seriously though, have you never heard: Actually never mind, keep watching! Your extra views gets me extra cash! In addition, a number of users that watched the video were appalled by his frequent use of the word rape as a punch-line, eventually leading to his decision to stop making rape jokes.
The Verge  and Forbes  both covered the announcement of the game. He then jokingly confirmed that he and fellow YouTube gamer jacksepticeye had been unverified on Twitter due to their ties to Isis. The following day, PewDiePie's account was briefly suspended. PewDiePie quickly got his account back, but the ordeal prompted him to record a video explaining what happened shown below.
Threat to Delete Channel On December 2nd,PewDiePie released a video in which he announced he was deleting his channel when he hit 50 million subscribers. He did this due to complaints he had with Youtube changing their algorithm so that people did not see content from channels they'd subscribed to and changing the prominent "Recommended" section of YouTube to show more of whatever is on the "Trending" tab.
Previously, he has also turned down — or rather neglected to reply to — all the interview proposals he receives every day. This is his first cover interview ever. How come you agreed to meet with us? You were also flexible when it came to meeting times, and I appreciate things like that, ha ha. We meet up at Felix has already been up for two hours, editing. Despite the fact that he and his girlfriend — who, under the name CutiepieMarzia is also a huge YouTuber in her own right with 4 million subscribers —— could travel in luxury all over the world on a never-ending tour attending events and gaming conventions, he turns it all down in order to work.
Their Victorian apartment has three small rooms and the living room ceiling is five meter high. With all the stucco and architectural adornments, the living room is reminiscent of an elaborate cake. According to this old-school scale, YouTubers should place at the very bottom. The digital platforms have turned all that around. Anyone with a computer and an Internet connection, or just a smartphone, can publish themselves online. People with talent and persistence can build their audience and make their own money — leaving old intermediaries like media houses, talent scouts, agents and production companies out of the picture.
At first, he posted a few self-edited game scenes without commentary. And then a few cuts where he played computer games while commenting on them.
It has grown gigantic in scale in recent years, but when Felix started out, it was still fairly unassuming. There was room for someone like me. After completing a Science Foundation year, he got in at the first try. They all wanted to make a business career, something I had no interest in what so ever. While he was a student at Chalmers, his videos started to take off, attracting an increasingly large number of viewers.
He had tried playing the horror game Amnesia, filming himself as he screamed his way through the scariest scenes of the game. It was an incredible feeling. At this point, he was uploading several clips every day. Since he had begun filming himself, his audience had also changed.
In the beginning, his audience was 99 percent male, but from now on, more girls started watching too. And as fate would have it, one Italian viewer sent a clip to a friend along with the comment: Instead, she started following his YouTube-channel and after some time, she sent him a message on Facebook.
Around this time, he had 1 subscribers and read every e-mail he received. Felix and Marzia begun e-mailing each other and exchanged video messages every day for two months.
The most powerful Swede in the world
Marzia and one of her friends met him at the airport. The ride home to her parents was uncomfortable and embarrassing.
But the romance endured reality and Felix stayed for two weeks. Marzia subsequently moved to Sweden and a while later the couple moved to Italy together. It took too long just posting videos on YouTube, says Felix Kjellberg. Moving to Brighton turned out to be a rational solution, as they both wanted to live in a city close to a big city, preferably close to the sea, somewhere where people spoke English.
Everybody wanted to collaborate and meet up — and it was fun meeting people from the same world, but in the end I still wanted to just sit down and nerd around with my computer.

It was fun for a while, but it was enough. What kind of offers did you receive? There was one thing I did agree to do, to be an actor in a feature film. The idea was that I would play myself and get brutally murdered. But in the end, the film was never made.
Would you like to create a game of your own? Gaming press recently reported that the four years old game Skate 3 from ea had made it to the bestseller list because Pewdiepie had posted a series of clips on the game earlier this year.
Since he did, demand for the game has been so high that ea has had to bring the game back into production despite the fact that it is a lousy skate game suffering from tons of problems, making it excellent comedy material for YouTube. But Felix Kjellberg has also been helpful in the success of the horror game Slender and the humor games Goat Simulator and Flappy Birds. I played the game and it caused somewhat of an explosion, it was really weird to see.
But you can look at the statistics and see that games increase to an extreme degree when I play them. What happens to you then?
After making a game big?GAME OF THE YEAR: 420BLAZEIT (Teens React: Gaming)
Do you play outside YouTube? When it comes to games, my own personal taste differs a lot from the ones I play on YouTube.
The games that are the best suited for YouTube are the really terrible games — if you want to be nice you could call them diamonds in the rough. One game I really wanted to play was Dark Souls, but often great games result in boring videos. I just want to play the games, not influence sales. If a game is really bad, do you say so? These days, I just quit. When it comes to your video production, how far ahead do you work?
I tailor the content according to the response I receive. It may shift from day to day. I read as many comments as I possibly can. Which videos are the most popular? My audience has grown successively. I keep testing new things all the time. Squeezed in between kitchen and bathroom, with small dark windows along the top end of the wall, the room suffers from poor air conditioning. On the walls, there are horror themed paintings, a man in a hood but without a face and an evil clown.
The local county administration bought one of them. I bought my first computer with the money I made. Once the screens and lights are all turned on, it gets very hot very quickly in the little room. In the background, you can often hear the sound of Felix shouting from his room. The comments on YouTube make up a very special kind of monster. So far only 5 custom stories 2 on moddb and 3 on steam workshop have been released, and while it's amazing that people spend time making mods for SOMA at all, we expected that there would've been a few more.
Just about everything in the game is controlled via script and modding allows you to replace any file, making it much more powerful than in Amnesia.
Both of these are very cool modifications, but considering that the game could have been changed into an RTS or a racer, we'd hoped to see more experimental stuff. It feels worthwhile to discuss why modding hasn't been as successful as it was with Amnesia. Secondly when we released Amnesia there weren't many other similar horror games around, and as a result many of Amnesia's mods got played by popular streamers. This gave people a huge incentive for completing their mods.
Thirdly, both the level creation and scripting is a bit harder in SOMA, making it more of a hassle for people to get things up and running. And finally, you can quickly create gameplay in Amnesia by just placing a few basic items, whereas SOMA requires more setup and lacks easily reusable elements.
All of these issues combined probably explains why fewer mods are being released compared to Amnesia. But we haven't given up on modding. There are lots of interesting things in the works coming from the community for instance, a very fitting SCP inspired custom story and we're discussing what we could do to give people more incentive to create and finish more mods. Reactions I think the most surprising part of the player response is the depth in which SOMA's story and subject matters have been discussed.
For instance, there have been really interesting discussions as to whether the game's semi- antagonist, WAU, is evil or not. Patrick Klepek at Kotaku wrote up a nice summary on this that can be found here.
While WAU was designed to not be really evil, it was very surprising to see some people seeing it as the good force in the game's world.
It made us look at the story in ways we'd never thought about ourselves. Another interesting discussion has been the coin-flip 'controversy'. This was another thing that we didn't figure would be very controversial, but ended up spawning tons of intelligent arguments. It's been a great deal of fun to see discussions like this. There's one aspect of the game that we've only seen mentioned once, though, which we thought would be a much bigger issue.
What that is we'll leave as an exercise for the reader to figure out.
