It's easy to jump on the bandwagon, but you realize they're not teens right? They're adults with families, including children. Not sure of exact ages, but I'd wager at least 26 or 27 since Robert Romine has been married since 2007.

The dev is new, has troubles, and is struggling. That doesn't make him immune to critique, but like he pointed out, it should be fair and reasonable critique. Jim appears to be specifically targeting Digital Homicide and feeding off of the negative air the he is helping to create. There are some points in the interview where Robert goes off and loses his train of thought, but he's still not wrong about Jim. I have not before, and can say with 100% certainty I will never support Jim or his channel over this. He consistently laughs and mocks Robert and treats it all like a joke since he has nothing to lose. He's extremely unprofessional, and no better than a tabloid reporter.

What Robert and Digital Homicide need is growth. Experience. Time. They're young developers with limited cash flow and a small group. Whether or not this lawsuit of theirs is going to fly or not is up to the court to decide now, but I support them. I've been a part of that community for almost 10 years in one form or another, and lots of small developers like this can grow and become great over time. That, or they mix and match and trade talent to create something new and better.

Again, the developer isn't perfect, but they don't deserve this. A YouTuber loses his viewer base due to another YouTuber trashing them left and right... they can go get a real job and continue their lives. A indie developer trashed by a YouTuber 'critic' who lives by the negative air he brings to everything as part of their persona, well, once he's done... that's his career. He will have to fundamentally change his career path to attempt to recover.

People are just entitled whiners and will jump on any bandwagon to be part of the crowd.
Sorry, but no.
Look up more of Digital Homicide then that single "interview" which consistent of 1 fallacy after the other before you defend a purely rotten company like this.
Some History lesson why Jim is "targetting" DH.

Still doesn't change that he's targeting them. They have problems, but has nobody stopped to think that maybe no one has actually offered to help or support them? So, like I said, i'd like to see this first-hand. I've offered to help QA test and improve what they're doing. If they slow down and put time and effort in, they could put out better stuff. They're drilling through all their ideas in no time at all and putting out substandard stuff.

Like I said, I've seen what sub-par developers can do given a little positive support. So, I'm offering. They can take it or leave it. If they ignore it completely, they must not be that hard up or dedicated.

Would there ever be a point beyond which criticism of a game would constitute an action liable of being criminalized? That implication makes the american judicial system seem very broken.

Yes... yes I have. Every few years some teen makes the news for just that reason. He has a startup doing something new and cool and is the hip target of conversation for a while.

This would be even less surprising in the indie gaming zone where every kid in high school thinks he can do better than the big boys. Sounds like a lot of what we all hear in all forums and video comments everywhere. Everyone overuses extreme words like 'garbage' and 'trash' to where they mean nothing..

I've got stuff to do today, so i'm getting off here, but I guess I'll clarify. Jim earned this attempt at a lawsuit, and I support it going to court to see what comes of it. Digital Homicide is a low-end developer who claims to want to do better, and i've read quite a few positive reports on their attempts at doing so. SO, i'm offering myself to them to see what they really want.

Also, I've done other research on them aside from that one 'interview', and still stand by my words. I'm giving them a chance instead of basing my final opinion on them from others thoughts.

Yes, if a product or company is unfairly targeted by a person or group with a significant amount of influence, you cross into this territory. The challenge is proving you were unfairly targeted and suffered some damages. So, let's see what happens in court.

Their website is awful, their games are about as low effort as you can get... They just stink of a cash-grab operation trying to con people, not a legitimate indie studio learning the ropes. I'd empathize with them like you, but they kinda deserve what they're getting.

Well, I'd like to see that for myself, so I'm offering them my QA experience since I was a alpha/beta tester for a few big companies, including one that specifically worked as a sourcing group for testers. I've looked over their games, played a few for a bit, they're definitely amateur. However, if they're sincere about wanting growth, I'm offering to help them. I've got a fair amount to offer, and if they want to improve they should take any help they can get at this point. If not, their choice, but at least I'm trying instead of sitting behind a keyboard. I'm taking action.

That's admirable.

However, I bet their current studio is shutting down after this. You should look for the same names in a new studio awhile from now.
