My Opinion Of: “Let’s Set The Record Straight” by @nonseqshow

Last night, Mr Kyle Curtis did a live stream to set the record straight on what has been happening behind the scenes since his hostile take over of the NonSequitur Show began, or at least since we, the fans, were made aware of it.

For those unfamiliar with the situation, Kyle Curtis and Mr Steve McRae joined forces near the end of 2017 if I am not mistaken and created a new show called The NonSequitur Show. Shortly after starting as a podcast, Steve convinced Kyle to also take the show to YouTube for which the show became a success.

Things appeared fine to the fans until the beginning of this year, 2019, where there appeared to be more episodes of Kyle with his buddies, GE, KC and Katie and less with Steve. As the months went on, Steve became less and less on the show.

When April rolled around, Steve was pretty much no more on the show and surprisingly, it all happened around the time that people were calling Steve transphobic. This, of course, was ridiculous because all Steve has said was trans people should not compete in sports with the gender they identify with UNTIL they have completed their gender conversion. That is NOT being transphobic, but Kyle’s friends like Katie are quite thin skin and would rather resort to name calling rather than have a discussion.

Now I do not know Steve, we’ve interacted a couple of times but what I know of him is what I have observed and I am confident enough that Steve is not a transphobic, racist, or anything else negative. What Steve is though is simply someone who loves having discussions, no matter the topic. That trait shows his intelligence since intelligent people are interested in discussions, not name calling.

Another instance where Kyle listened to his buddies, GE and KC, was when Steve questioned KC on being an engineer. KC, as the child she is, went crying to her hubby GE and instead of either of them being an adult and asking Steve, “why do you think that”, the two went on a temper tantrum which most likely included telling Kyle to get rid of Steve from the show.

Beginning of June I believe is when things became public and Kyle’s hostile takeover of the channel was out in the open for all to see, and boy did we see.

Since that time, Kyle has been quiet, extremely quiet while Steve has been setting the record straight as to what happened. All of it is confirmed by David (aka Booleanenator) who was the producer and also kicked off the show by Kyle.

This now brings us to last night live stream Kyle did and it was not good…for Kyle!

The first thing I noticed and so did many others was Kyle constantly swivelling back and forth in his chair. This is a clear sign that he was nervous. Now his nervousness could be that he knew what he was about to say would be lies and hoped no one would notice or he is like and just shy in front of a camera when alone.

Another thing was eye contact. I don’t recall him doing much looking directly into the camera, as if he was trying to either read from a script, keep an eye on chat or, just like the swivelling in his chair, knew he was lying.

Kyle also commented on two posts that were made on Twitter, one was about the accusations of him wearing $400 suits and the other was about KC telling everyone the night before that the live stream was being moved to last night. Kyle made a comment about those false posts and how wrong it is for people to make such false claims and he is correct BUT he doesn’t seem to be telling his little buddies, GE, KC, and Katie not to do the same. Just one day prior Katie interjected herself into the discussions on Twitter and made the claim that everything was done and over with. No joke folks, someone who claims to be a journalist and writes column pieces on Patheos, claimed everything between Kyle and Steve was done.

Katie claimed that both sides have met with their lawyers in a conference call, a deal had been agreed to, and it was now all done. When people, including myself, politely pointed out the facts, she blocked everyone, even those who were actually part of the conference call. So much for being a journalist who cares about the truth. She would fit in well at FOX News.

We also heard his reasoning for not providing the financial books to Steve which Steve has been requesting for months, yes you read that correctly. Any business partner is reluctant to hand over the books to the other partner is hiding something. Kyle now claims he was protecting Steve to which everyone in chat said BULLSHIT!

Kyle reason for not providing the name of his lawyer for the past 30 days was because he was worried the trolls would “harass his lawyer”…excuse me…what? The only way anyone who has no business to know who his lawyer is would know is if he himself gave it out publicly. Steve isn’t stupid, he is not going to jeopardize the money that is owed to him by releasing the information to Kyle’s lawyer. So that reason just doesn’t make any sense.

I could go on more but I have to get going. If people want, maybe I will do a part two but for now, I think I covered most of what I wanted to say.

Take care all.

@Activision and @Bungie are banning #Linux gamers.

At blizzcon last weekend, Bungie announced Blizzard fans can get Destiny 2 for free for a limited time, unfortunately, those who game on Linux PC are receiving permanent bans.

Millions around the world do gaming on Linux and many, many more gamer’s have expressed their desire in forums to get the hell off of Windows once and for all.

It is strange that game developers want to make as much of a return on their product yet they refuse to support PC’s running Mac OS and Linux.

As of this writing, Bungie and Activision are refusing to unban any gamer playing on Linux. SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

@Activision is trying to kill @Blizzard_Ent franchise.

Blizzard Entertainment was at one time the best damn video game maker in the world but then they went public which slightly lowered the importance of Blizzard own rule of gamers first.

Then came the merger with Activision and the whole “gamers first” rule was basically thrown in the trash. The whole Diablo Immortal fiasco proves that.

Another indication that Activision is killing Blizzard is with all the micro transactions, loot boxes and so on that have popped up in Blizzard titles since the merge.

Blizzard fans don’t want loot boxes and micro transactions getting in the way of their beloved game.

They are also diehard computer gamers NOT mobile. So the fact that Blizzard has stated that all of Blizzard games are coming to mobile, it is clear Activision greediness is behind the movement from computer to mobile.

Unfortunately this will result in the death of what was once a great company. R. I. P. Blizzard.

@Blizzard_Ent Wyatt Cheng (@candlesan) Lies and Insults Diablo Fans

If there is one thing software developers should NEVER do is lie to your customers and insult them but apparently, Wyatt Cheng did not get that memo when he became the lead developer for Diablo.

At Blizzcon this past weekend, a fan asked if the new mobile game Diablo Immortal would come to PC which is a good question given that Blizzard fans are all PC gamers. Mr. Cheng answered no to which many of the Diablo fans in attendance booed. What did Mr. Cheng do, well his reply was “Don’t you all have phones?” and no I am not kidding. This, of course, angered Diablo fans even more.

Where he lied was when he was interviewed before Blizzcon and there are also quotes of his on several gaming news sites where he says they care about the fans. If that was true, they would have NEVER created Diablo Immortal without making sure it would also have a PC release. As already explained, Blizzard fans are PC gamers, spending thousands of dollars on their computers, making sure to keep them up to date with the latest hardware. Immortal should have been announced only in markets where mobile gaming is accepted like in China. Gamers in the West do not game on smartphones. Sure, there are some people who may do a level or two of a puzzle game like Candy Crush but an action-packed game like Diablo just won’t fly with gamers who prefer controllers, keyboard and mice.

Also, a game like Diablo Immortal is going to need a top of the line phone or tablet for it to play smoothly on.  Hearthstone is a great example of how Diablo Immortal is going to run.  I have tried Hearthstone on both smartphone and tablet, both devices the game is choppy and both are fairly new being just a year old.  Now granted, these are not top of the line because, like most, I can not afford $1,000 phone or tablet.

Mr. Cheng, release a PC version of Diablo Immortal.  Diablo fans feel hurt that they will not be able to enjoy a game that takes place, according to you, between Diablo II and Diablo III.

Once Again @Blizzard_Ent and @mikemorhaime Prove They Don’t Care About Fans

This past weekend was Blizzcon 2018 and once again fans got to see how out of touch the company is with their own customer/player base.

I am a fan of Blizzard Entertainment and have been since someone bought me the StarCraft box set when it was released almost twenty years ago so I can say that Blizzard is no longer thinking about their clients first. It started when they became a public company and got even worst when Activision and Blizzard merged into Activision Blizzard.

So for those of you who do not yet know what happened, Blizzard decided to announce a brand new Diablo game that will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III BUT there is a catch. It is ONLY for mobile. That is right, the fans whom have been pretty much forgotten by Blizzard for the past 6 years and are all PC (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) gamers, finally get a new Diablo game but will not be playable on PC.

Announcing a mobile-only game at a convention consisting of only PC gamers is the dumbest move any company could make. This just shows how the people in charge are absolutely stupid.

Also, PC gamers know that mobile games are nothing more than a cash grab and what is even worse is this new game coming in 2019 is a 100% clone of another game created by the company Blizzard has hired to make the game. Blizzard says it was made from the ground up yet if you look at Diablo Immortal and compare it to this other game, it is clear that Immortal is nothing but a clone. Same attack effects, UI, etc…

To Blizzard, if you are reading this, get your shit together and get back to putting your fans first as you did over a decade ago. You have lost your way, especially after the merge with Activision.


So I was just about to publish the above when I saw a new video that appears to be some kind of news conference that took place at Blizzcon. Below are my thoughts on what was said.

 

In the video, you see two Blizzard employees, Wyatt Cheng who is head of the Diablo teams and Allen who is executive producer.

Allen states that the truth to why they are bringing Diablo to mobile is to target younger gamers whom they say are all mobile gamers. Stats, of course, say different with player retention for mobile games being no more than 5%. With that said though, they still chose to show a mobile-only game to an entire PC player base.

I understand a business would want to attract more gamers to their franchise so I don’t blame them for wanting to expand to mobile but you have to choose the best place to announce it. Blizzcon was the worst place to announce a mobile-only game for a franchise that has received very little love from Blizzard in the six and a half years the game has been out.

Another piece of information given is there will be even more of its franchises will be coming to mobile making it clear that Activision and their greedy micro transactions lifestyle is officially making its way into the Blizzard games.

The only way Blizzard can save face now to the Diablo fans is to announce that Immortal is going to come to PC.

Google App Review: Parcels @ptisunov

For about a week now I have been testing a different parcel tracking app along side my usual app called Deliveries and another app called 17Track.

The reason why I started looking for another app to use is because Deliveries doesn’t track all postal companies. I found this out when an item I ordered through Wish was sent by Wanb Express. This began my search for another parcel tracking app.

Parcels has a great feature in that you can have it import your orders from Wish and a few other online retailers with apparently more to come. This feature does require some work for 3 of my items were imported with the exact same name so I had to compare the tracking numbers between the app and the Wish website so I could properly rename the items.

Another feature I find quite interesting is the app ability to add new tracking numbers when a parcel receives a new one from another company. Unfortunately this feature is not 100%. I have had a couple items get added again because of the item getting another tracking number.

There does not appear to be a way to merge items when an item is added multiple times but then I am only using the free version right now. Checking the status also tends to take a lot longer than other apps but this may have something to do with the app checking multiple carriers for each item.

Regarding the free version of the app, it has limitations as you would expect. One limitation is no more than 10 items, whether or not an item has been delivered and is now archived. This limitation is also a pain due to the app fault of adding duplicate items as explained earlier.

The free version, on top of the lack of features, also has a banner ad along the top and a subscription banner ad along the bottom which is displayed overtop your tracking list. On a tablet, the bottom banner isn’t much of a problem but on a smaller smartphone it can be annoying. I’m not a fan of this tactic to get subscribers.

Another problem I recently found with the app is that it has decided to no longer track one of my items even though the app is supposed to be checking multiple carriers. Currently Canada Post has the item but Parcels is stating that one of the carriers is no longer providing updates. No it does not mention which carrier it is getting that message from but is clearly ignoring Canada Post tracking. Deliveries and 17Track are continually to track the item.

Final thought on the Parcels app is this, at this time I won’t be buying the app but if they fix the issues I have mentioned then I may consider buying and using as my default tracking app. For now I think I will stick with either Deliveries or 17Track.

FE Debbie & FE Antonio Claims @RedsRhetoric Doesn’t Know Triangles & FE Don’t Know Globe History

Hello again everyone, I have been doing some more watching of videos with flat Earth believers, mostly debates because I don’t think I could handle watching a video by a flat Earth believer without someone with common sense countering their claims. I value my IQ.

FE Debbie

I recently watched a debate that happened back in the spring between everyone favourite flat Earth buster, Reds Rhetoric, and flat Earth believer Debbie.

OMFG!

Debbie has to be the most dumb women I have ever heard speak. What is even more shocking is her photo shows her being a brunette and not a blonde as one would assume. In fact she may be even more stupid than a blonde. She actually makes other flat earth believers like D Marble look smart and all he wants is for everyone to suck his balls.

Reds Rhetoric Doesn’t Know Triangles

Another flat earth believer named Antonio Subirates did a response video recently to globe Earth believer Conspiracy Catz and right near the beginning, he said something that shocked the heck out of me. He said that Reds Rhetoric doesn’t know triangles. WHAT?

Triangles is one of the easiest things to learn and is taught at an early age. For me it was in elementary school, around grade five I believe. A triangle is simply a closed shape with three straight sides. Inside angles can me right angle, acute angle and obtuse angle. There really isn’t much else to a triangle so I would love to know more of what Antonio meant when he said Reds doesn’t know triangles.

They Don’t Know Globe History

Flat Earth believers constantly get the history of people believing the Earth is a globe. Another video from a few months ago where YouTube channel Non Sequitur Show had on Reds Rhetoric and multiple flat earth believers in a timed competition type debate. I noticed one of the flat Earth participants as well as others in more videos I have watched that they like to claim the globe Earth belief has only been around for like 500 years. This is absolutely false. The first written report we have of the earth being a globe and not flat dates back to around 500 BC as a speculation until around 200 BC, when Hellenistic Astronomy established the spherical shape of the Earth as a physical given.

Water Doesn’t Stick To A Ball

If you are a flat Earth believer and stand by the whole “water doesn’t stick to a ball” by those stupid experiments of people pouring water on a basketball or other round object…well I believe I know how to make such thing happen. I am working on figuring out the correct objects required and then of course scrounging up the money to buy the objects.

Why Believing in Earth Being Flat is Rediculous

In my last post I gave my opinion of what was supposed to be a debate between two gentleman, Reds Rhetoric and a flat earth believer who goes my the name Southern Israelite.  I ended that review stating that maybe I will post a list of everyone that would have to be in on such a hoax so the following is a complete list of government space programs.  A few have been discontinued and a couple of been renamed or merged in to another.

I wanted to include the total number of employees for each organisation but unfortunately that information isn’t easily available online.

As you can see, we have 82 space agencies ALL run by governments around the word.  Again, some have ended or renamed or merged in to another but there is no way that a round earth hoax could remain as such for so long when you have that many governments and the thousands and thousands of employees.  Someone would have leaked something over the past five decades when mankind first made space flight possible.

If you are a flat earth believer and STILL believe that a round earth is a hoax, then you need to see a psychiatrist and have your head examined.  I’m sure medical science pertaining to the brain would love to do a case study on you.
